This week the Rex Matriarchs come roaring into the game with a new combat challenge for experienced fighters. Which is appropriate, because it's also Combat Week! Let's take a look..
We're paying homage to the classics this week with the launch of a brand-new Combat challenge that's brimming with nostalgia. It's time to face the Rex Matriarchs... if you think you're tough enough, that is!
You'll go up against three respawning bosses. Each has a different strength to test your mettle, but also a different weakness to be exploited. Grind those kills and earn powerful rewards to boost your Combat playstyle, or maybe even get your hands on the iconic Laniakea's Spear - T90 damage / T75 accuracy is not to be sniffed at, plus, it'll give you 5% extra poison damage and +5% chance to apply poison when used.
Veteran RuneScapers may recall classics such as Dagannoth Kings while new challengers will enjoy a brutal test of their combat mastery.
So what are you waiting for? Grab your best gear and head to central Anachronia. The lair of the Rex Matriarchs awaits...
It's week two of Awesome April, a month-long event designed to help make things right following the Login Lockout situation. Each week there's something new to try, and this week, we're focusing on all things Combat.
We'll be revisiting the Celebration of Combat event from January's Grand Party - but this time, we're going even bigger!

Those bosses won't know what hit 'em! Be sure to tune in next week to see what else Awesome April has in store for you.
Combat Week kicks off today at 12:00 Game Time.
Solomon's been doing a bit of spring cleaning, and as of April 26th (next week's update), you'll notice a few changes to various items found in his store. Let's take a closer look.
From next week's update the Wealth Evaluator will become free for all players. You'll be able to access it automatically through the interface.
Existing Wealth Evaluator items, which previously unlocked the interface, will be cleaned up on log in. Should one get missed, simply click it to get it cleaned up, along with a reminder that the Wealth Evaluator tool is now free.
This is part of our ongoing commitment to making sure you're getting great value in all the right places. Be on the lookout for more changes in this vein as the year goes on.
Various other items will now be available in both Solomon's General Store and in-game. No more hopping out of the game to get your goodies!
Challenge Gems can now be purchased from War in War's Retreat.
The Makeover Mage has expanded their stock to include Chameleon Extract, for all your fashionscape needs.
Non-Ironman players can purchase Clan Citadel Booster Packs from Quartermaster NPCs in Clan Citadels. As before, Ironman players will not be able to purchase these packs.
Lastly, Tasty and Jelly Treats can now both be purchased from the Legendary Pets menu.
Morytania, Kharidian and Masterwork Music Boxes are now free for all players! If you don't already own them, you can claim yours from Diango's Item Storage. Party on!
