It’s a real shame that Pestilence isn’t next up on the ‘Til Death Do Us Part roster, as that would tie in nicely with the fact that half of Jagex seems to be off ill. The Big Post-RuneFest Lurgy, they call it. Other names we’ve heard include ‘RuneFever’ and ‘RuneMange’. We’re not sure if the marketing department will rush to embrace that branding.
As it happens, Famine is next up in ‘Til Death Do Us Part, which doesn’t really lend itself kindly to any jokes. Especially as the canteen we have here is so great. Seriously, if you ever visit then do try the BBQ pulled pork tacos. The good stuff.
CUSTOMER SUPPORT WEEK
Extra Keys, anyone? Imagine if you could be rewarded for doing something that benefits you. Like keeping your account safe from unwelcome visitors. Sweet deal, right?
Customer Support Week kicks off today (October 22nd). It promotes good account security etiquette by encouraging you, our dear players, to enable your bank PIN and the Authenticator. Each of these earns you a Treasure Hunter key, regardless of whether you’re a member or not. Already super secure? Well done, you’re on The Good List. And you won’t miss out on the keys either as you'll get them automatically.
Count Check Free XP and Clue Scrolls
Count Check, while a friendly Vampyre, usually prefers the darker surroundings of the Stronghold of Security. This week, however, he’s travelled to Burthorpe and is waiting to talk to you. Say hello and he'll give you a free daily clue scroll and an instant teleport to The Drop, as well as some top tips to protect your account – which if followed are rewarded with an XP lamp. You can return to him all week too! Missed a day? Count Check is not the type to hold a grudge and will happily hand over your missed scrolls.
You'll receive two prize caskets for each clue you complete, but you'll have to be fully protected to unlock the second one. If you're not a member, you'll only have access to F2P items from easy clue scroll drop tables. Members can receive rewards from easy or medium clue scroll drop tables, with rewards that scale at higher total skill levels.
We'll also be launching a new edition of The Drop, which will be playable in-game throughout the week. We’ve got a fresh set of new questions with a Customer Support theme. Answer them all correctly and you'll unlock the rare title of 'The Knowledgeable'. Very flash.

100 Tainted Shard Charges – The Four Riders of the Apocalypse will need all the help they can get during this month-long mini world event. This is why the LootScape crate awarded to each and every one of you following one of our October streams will receive 100 extra charges on the Tainted Shard. And the easiest it is to defeat those monstrosities from Daemonheim, the more riches you’ll get from the loot cave!
