Summer in RuneScape
Summer in RuneScape is a membership promotion offering benefits to those who purchase a special membership package during the months of June and July 2014. The promotion ends on July 28th.
During the summer months of 2014, the Summer in RuneScape event allowed players who had purchased the 3 month summer membership package (or who had purchased a gold membership package earlier in the year) to own two new items.
- The enlightenment aura which offers 100% xp gain in all skilling activities while it is active.
- The crystal amulet which offers a chance to get items related to the opening of the gates of Prifddinas (due to open in late 2014).
Frequently Asked Questions
1. So what do I get with this Summer Special package?
Grab this year’s summer package, available from 28th May, to load up your account with 3 months of membership, a brand new aura, and the crystal amulet!
The new Tier 5 aura is activated once a week. With it, your experience gains will be doubled for two hours. The amount of xp you can earn is only limited by the activation time, there is no cap or maximum amount that can be earned. Keep in mind that this aura is only active from 1st June – August 31st, so grab the package asap to take advantage!
The crystal amulet can be used to gather elven resources, before the release of the city. Use it to get a step ahead of your fellow players in the race to Prifddinas!
2. Do I have to buy the summer package to get these benefits?
If you are a Gold Premier Club member, then you will automatically be given the aura and the crystal amulet. Similarly, if you have been a member for 12 months consecutively, you’ll be given the aura and crystal amulet when you next log in.
Players who do not meet these requirements will be able to get the new goodies and 25% off 3 months of membership from the purchase page.
3. What payment methods can I use to buy this package?
You’ll be able to buy this package with Credit Card, PayPal, PayByCash and RuneScape Bonds.
4. How do I buy the package with Bonds?
To grab your package with Bonds, make sure you have 5 Bonds in your inventory and/or bank, and then click to redeem one. Head to the membership packages, then select the 'RuneScape Summer Special' package. Click confirm, and the package will be added to your account!
5. Do I need to cancel my subscription?
If you have a Credit/Debit card and PayPal subscription, you don’t need to do a thing. Your subscription will be put on pause, and the extra 3 months of membership stacked on top of your remaining membership. You’ll next be billed for membership in 3 months’ time, when you have less than 3 days of membership remaining.
If you have a Boku subscription, then this will continue to bill you on a monthly basis until you indicate that the rebills should be halted.
6. Will this package rebill me after the membership expires?
No – this is a one-time purchase that won’t rebill. When the 3 months expire, you’ll need to pick up a new subscription to continue your adventures in the member’s worlds.
However, if you have an active subscription before purchasing this package, then this subscription will rebill you when you’re about to run out of membership.
7. I can’t find my Aura/I can’t get my Aura working!
Upon purchase, the Aura will be added to your bank. If your bank is full, then it can be claimed from Xuan, who is found in Burthorpe and Varrock. Keep in mind that the Aura will only be active following the 1st June – before that date, you will not be able to activate the experience gains! The last recharge for the summer aura will be on the 27th August.
8. How does my Aura work?
Your shiny Tier 5 aura will recharge (finish its cool down) every Wednesday, and can be activated for 2 hours. During those 2 hours, all of your experience gains will be doubled. If your Aura is sitting around waiting for you with Xuan, keep in mind that it will have to cool down when you retrieve it – that means you should make sure you retrieve it before the upcoming Wednesday!
To use your aura, equip it to your aura slot, then right click and hit “activate”. Your Aura will run for 2 hours, and you can check how long it has left by right clicking and hitting “aura time remaining”.
9. I can’t find my crystal amulet!
Your crystal amulet will also be added to your inventory or bank after purchase. If you can’t find this one though, Diango in Draynor Village Market will be holding onto it for you.
10. How does this crystal amulet work?
This crystal amulet has three powerful effects: one provides bonus experience, and two others provide items.
Once a day, you can activate the amulet to receive a Prismatic crystal, which can be consumed for bonus experience – split between the skills necessary to enter the Elf city. If you already meet all of the elf city requirements, then you’ll instead have bonus experience to spend on any skill you prefer.
When you are wearing the amulet and training skills, then you have a chance at receiving rare items, normally found only within the city of Prifddinas. Save these, and the elves will be grateful for them when the city opens…
11. I bought and redeemed a Pre-Paid Card for this package, but don't have the items?
Pre-Paid cards are not a valid payment method to get the Summer Special. The only way to get the enlightenment aura and the crystal amulet is to buy the Summer Special package with Credit Card, PayPal, PayByCash, or by redeeming Bonds in game.
If you've bought the Pre-Paid card but haven't yet redeemed it, then you can use it to get 5 Bonds in game - which can then be redeemed for the summer package.
