Runescape Custom Skies & Competition
Menaphos is getting close, 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.
Not least of these is the Double XP Weekend, which kicks off at 12:00 UTC (Game Time) on 19th May.
Also on 19th May, the Countdown to Menaphos begins, giving you rewards each day you log in until the gates open.
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!
