Runescape Behind the Scenes December 2016
We have all sorts of Christmas cheer planned for you this month, but the main piece of content is far from festive. Two and a half years since the world shook and the Sixth Age began...get ready for Sliske's Endgame.
The story so far has been riveting. Sliske - after killing Guthix and shaking up all the gods by promising the Stone of Jas to the victor of his cruel game - is preparing for the final showdown. In this epic finale, you'll see all the gods and battle winners come face to face once again as their scores are compared – Vorago, Armadyl, Saradomin, Seren...and a few surprise guests all wait to see who's come out on top.
With many different outcomes depending on your choices, parts of the quest will be replayable, allowing you to experience the full story. Finally, we'll find out Sliske's motives and discover the real puppet master behind the scenes.
The ending is quite something, a fitting conclusion for this year's major storyline. The world will never be the same again.
Rewards are suitably - well - rewarding for a story of this magnitude. There's plenty of new off-hand and jewellery items that help enhance your non-combat skilling, plus an XP orientated set bonus when they are all worn together. For the lore fans this quest is positively dripping with story – just read EVERYTHING you find. Oh, and there's a very healthy, god-sized chunk of XP, too.
This really is a fantastic storyline – starting from Missing, Presumed Death and the action in the Empyrean Citadel, we've helped organise heists in Dishonour among Thieves, been reunited with dead allies in Nomad's Elegy, tried to free the Barrows Brothers in Kindred Spirits and - only last month - revisited Freneskae to thwart plans to create a new universe in Children of Mah.
Each part of this amazing quest chain is required to engage in Sliske's Endgame – it's a superb journey featuring some of the most popular quests of all time, and we hope you enjoy this momentous conclusion.
Once you've caught your breath after Sliske's rollercoaster ride, why not chill out and bask in the Christmas spirit? We have a full calendar of event for you - just check out the Christmas tab on the community interface. We've got:
