The Dominion Tower

The dusty tower in the middle of the desert has plenty of myths surrounding its existence, but one thing is clear: it was built for the tougher warriors of the world to pit their skills against fearsome monsters. The main world for playing Dominion Tower is W52.

The Tower Modes

Main article: Dominion Tower Modes

To start fighting in the tower, click on one of the flights of stairs leading up from the ground floor. You will get a choice of which game mode you want to play.

The modes are:

Bosses

Main article: Dominion Tower Bosses

There are 8 seperate classifications of bosses, Class A - H. Each class contains a selection of former quest bosses of a similar difficult level, with Class H containing the easiest bosses. In each class there are 6 bosses, providing a total of 48 separate encounters. Players must have completed the quest in which a boss is encountered before meeting them in the tower.

Achievements

To give you more to do, the tower will set you a series of Achievements to work toward. These achievements are tasks such as lasting 8 fights in Endurance mode, or killing 200 bosses.

Completing achievements gains you access to unlockable rewards.

Rewards

Main article: Dominion Tower Rewards

Fighting monsters in Dominion Tower earns a range of rewards - both tower-specific and general, as well as combat experience. The rewards issued are based on a players Dominion Factor.

Players can also receive journal pagesdom journal page.gif, which reveal the history of the tower, and can be added to a Dominion journaldom journal.gif, obtainable by talking to the Strange face while a journal page is present in your inventory.

Future Updates

In the Behind the Scenes article for February 2012, the boss designed based on votes at RuneFest 2011, Sunfreet was announced as a future release. In addition the following upcoming changes were announced:

Dominion Tower Item Exchange

A feature to convert power-ups for experience was unveiled

Glove Improvements

Players are to be allowed to own multiple pairs of goliath, swift and spellcaster and they will also last longer enabling players to fight more monsters before the gloves run out.

Improved Experience Rates

Jagex also planned to take another look at the XP rates, however stated that "the main reason for fighting in the Tower isn’t XP", but that "the rate [isn't] quite competitive enough".

Prior to these improvments, the top of the tower contained only the following bosses, who respawned quickly:

  • The Inadequacy
  • The Untouchable
  • The Everlasting
  • The Kendal
  • The Draugen
  • Elvarg
  • Koschei the Deathless
  • Jungle Demon
  • Karamel
  • Barrelchest
  • Evil Chicken
  • Bouncer
