Treasure Hunter | Valentine's 2016

Snuggle up at home and treat yourself this February with our Valentine’s event and goodies!

From 00:00 UTC on the 11th February until 23:59 UTC on the 15th February, you can collect Valentine’s petals through Treasure Hunter, skilling and killing, and daily challenges.

Simply click on the petals in your inventory to open the Valentine’s Store interface. There, you can unlock rewards from this year’s Valentine’s event, as well as Valentine’s loot from 2015 and 2014.

If you’re running low on Valentine’s petals, try searching for our hidden Easter eggs! There are two to find and they will reward you with an additional 25 petals each.

The Scepter of Enchantment is the main attraction of this year’s Valentine’s event! Fuel the staff with 200 petals to give it a charge, and then slam it to the ground for a 4% XP boost and a life point boost for 24 hours. Any player who is in the vicinity of the player when the staff is activated will receive a 2% XP boost and bonfire health boost for 2 hours.

Note: These boosts will not stack. If the affected player is hit by the 2% XP boost and then activates their own scepter, they will receive the original 4% XP boost. The Scepter of Enchantment can only be activated once a day. Normal bonfire boost does not stack with this health boost either.

This year’s Valentine’s Day prizes also include:

  • Simple Masquerade Mask
  • Follower pet, Helps, the Goblin Butler
  • Elegant Masquerade Mask (includes a unique walk animation)
  • Valentine’s Masquerade Emote
  • Masquerade Ball Outfit override

You will also be able to purchase items from previous Valentine’s Day events. The 2015 items can be bought at any time during the event using the petals. Once you have collected all of the 2015 items, you will be able to buy the Crown of the Fallen from the Valentine’s store.

Make sure you use your Valentine’s petals soon! Valentine’s petals will become untradeable on the 29th February before being removed from game on the 14th March.


Enjoy!

Happy Valentine’s 2016! Have fun and let us know what you think of this week’s Treasure Hunter promotion over on the forums.

What is Treasure Hunter?

Treasure Hunter is playable from within RuneScape, allowing players to use Keys to claim in-game items as prizes. These range from useful resources to rare weapons and exclusive gear.

Playing Treasure Hunter is simple - click the treasure chest icon that pops up when you log in. If you've not played before, just follow the on-screen guide.

Everyone gets at least one Key per day, and RuneScape members get two. You can earn more Keys while playing the game, or stock up by redeeming Bonds.

If you'd like more, you can also buy Keys on the website, or by clicking 'Buy Keys' within the Treasure Hunter interface in-game.
