The next Double XP Weekend begins:

23rd September 2016

12:00 UTC
How Does It Work?

Each Double XP Weekend lasts for 72 hours, during which base XP for most combat and skilling activities is increased:

    +100% for RuneScape members
    +20% for free players

Any Restrictions?

The Double XP Weekend boost is not applied to the XP earned through the following items or activities:

    Assist system
    XP lamps
    Tomes of experience
    Dragon rider amulet
    Goldsmithing gloves
    Brawling gloves
    Player-owned house altars
    Dungeoneering wildcards
    Sacred clay
    Ancient effigies

It also does not apply to XP rewards given on hand-in for the following activities:

    Daily Challenges
    Jade Vine
    Strange and golden rocks
    Other Distractions & Diversions

It does not apply to XP awarded on hand-in of points or tokens. Examples:

    Slayer point rewards
    Brimhaven Agility Arena tickets
    Dungeoneering tokens

The Invention skill benefits differently to others:

    Item XP is gained at +50%
    Making items on a workbench (charge packs, siphons etc) gives +50% improved XP
    Disassembling random items (logs, potions etc) will give +50% improved XP
    Disassembling/siphoning equipment does not give improved XP

Ironman accounts do not receive an XP boost on Double XP Weekend.

Finally, while stored Bonus XP itself is not boosted, it is still awarded alongside the boost from Double XP Weekend. So a member training a skill with stored Bonus XP on Double XP Weekend will receive +200% base XP.
