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 and rs gold on the IGVAULT, or by clicking ‘Buy Keys’ within the Treasure Hunter interface in-game.
Menaphos is getting close and Buy cheap RS Gold at 4rsgold, and we’ve got a got a ion of cool in-game events on the way that’ll get you in the mood for some desert adventuring.

Until then, see Gielinor in a different light with Mod Shauny’s breathtaking Custom Skies update.
Updated Skies & Screenshot Competition
Custom Skies is exactly it sounds like – the option to change the look of RuneScape’s skybox and apply a ion of visual filters. By combining these, you can bathe Gielinor in a bright glow, a moody haze, or anything in between.
Get started by ing ‘Visualise’ on the Orb of Oculus. You can now also access all of the Orb of Oculus functions without the artefact itself, but right-clicking the World Map icon. Why not share your glorious views with the community for a chance to win some Bonds? See Mod Shauny’s competition thread for details.
Countdown to Menaphos
Double XP’s not the only reason to get in game during the lead-up to Menaphos. Join us daily in the countdown to the grand opening! Click the icon displayed when you log in to open the Countdown interface.
Each day that you log in 19th May until 4th June, you can claim a reward. Lamps, stars, meteorites, skilling packs and lanterns are among the goodies on offer.
Note that each reward is only available on its given day, and only non-Ironman accounts with membership are eligible.
Once Menaphos goes live, you’ll be able to access the chest shown in the Countdown interface and receive a duplicate of each reward you’ve claimed, making launch day all the sweeter. You’ll have until 12th June to claim the contents of the chest. Enjoy!

Stride into the Abyss for madcap battles in Shattered Worlds runescape gold : the new combat minigame.
Slaughter your way through procedurally generated maps packed with a mash-up of RuneScape environments, enemies and mutator effects, surviving ever-increasing difficulty for as long as you possibly can.
Push your limits in this test of skill, adaptability and endurance and claim some amazing new rewards, including sigils: new gear that grants powerful temporary effects.
How to start
Speak to the Abyssal Knight Commander in Lumbridge Swamp.
There are no level requirements, but level 40 in at least one combat skill is recommended.
Reality as we know it teeters on the edge of a seething mass of chaos: the Abyss. Once kept at bay by powerful magical seals, it now threatens to boil over into Gielinor.
In aid of the Abyssal Knights, you’ll enter Shattered Worlds alone, and fight through bizarre maps filled with strange creatures. You may bring your own gear and consumables, or be provided with some gear to use while you’re there. Note that should you bring your own gear, it will still degrade as applicable, and consumables will be used as normal.
As you progress through the worlds, not only will the difficulty increase, but mutators will be applied – persistent effects which change how you and/or your enemies behave for the duration of your run.
You might find yourself vampyric – able to leech the life force of your foes…or you might find that enemies explode into hordes of zombie chickens when you kill them. These – and many stranger things – await you when you step through the portal.
Eventually, you will fail – but fear not. Shattered Worlds is safe death, and the challenge lies in defeating your personal best score – and those of your friends.
You’ll find three weekly challenges to test your mettle, and earn you bonus rewards. Try the gold challenge for a real test of your combat skill!
Brave Shattered Worlds and the rewards will be rich. You’ll receive reward currency (and a rare chance at a pet) in a chest at the end of your run. Speak to the Quartermaster outside the Shattered Worlds entrance to spend your reward points.
These new pieces of gear give powerful benefits when activated – either the hotbar or the Worn interface itself. They have no passive benefits – it’s all about the active effects. They sit in an all-new equipment slot.
Activating a sigil puts it on cooldown, along with all other sigils. No swapping out to stack effects – you’ll need to choose what you want to use carefully.
Sigils have charges, and can be recharged at the entrance to Shattered Worlds. We may introduce sigils in the future that degrade to dust.
As for the sigils released today, there are three:
Sigil of Slaying – Increases earned Slayer XP by 10% for 30 seconds. Sigil slot cooldown for 60 seconds.
Ferocious Sigil – Kuradal’s slayer dungeon NPCs will instantly respawn on death for 30 seconds. Sigil slot cooldown for 60 seconds.
Aggression Sigil – Immediately forces nearby monsters to attack you. Sigil slot cooldown for 20 seconds.
There are two new combat techniques to be learned, too:
Bladed Dive | Basic Ability, 65 Attack, Dual Wielding
Leap towards the target location or enemy. If an enemy is targeted, you’ll deal damage to it and all adjacent enemies upon arrival. If enemies hit by Bladed Dive die within 3 seconds, Bladed Dive’s cooldown is reset. Note that Bladed Dive does not share a cooldown with Barge, Escape or Surge.
Salt the Wound | Threshold Ability, 60 Ranged
Deals 188% weapon damage to the target, plus an additional 18% weapon damage per stack of Punctured on the target. This also refreshes the duration of Punctured.
When purchased, also upgrades your existing Dazing Shot to apply the Punctured status effect. Punctured stacks up to 10 times and deals a small amount of damage over time.
All previously released slayer masks are available for purchase at the Shattered Worlds reward store.
Note that it is not possible to acquire additional copies of masks the store, nor are spirits of battle available.
The Abyssal Hound is a rare drop Shattered Worlds reward chests (which can be opened after completing a run of worlds or after completing a weekly challenge).
The evolving Anima Creature can be purchased the Shattered Worlds reward store. The pet has nine tiers which can be purchased, each of which changes its appearance.
That’s not all – there’s also cosmetic Abyssal Knight armour overrides, Slayer XP lamps, and Slayer contracts to be completed within Shattered Worlds.
Whew! That’s a lot to take in – but Shattered Worlds is one heck of an update. You’ve never experienced RuneScape combat like this before, so buckle up and have fun.
