This Week In RuneScape | 20/07/20


Are you ready for some fun in the sun? We hope so, because this week The Beach is coming back to Gielinor! For those of you who’d prefer to stay in the shade, we’ve got details about our newest quest and some important changes to account security.

The Beach

Sunnies? Check. Flip flops? Check. Sandboards? You betcha! It’s time to hit The Beach!

From July 20th to August 10th the Lumbridge Crater will be transformed into a scorching hot island paradise filled with fun and rewarding activities – including everyone’s favourite Dungeoneering hole.

The rewards this year include the stylish Selfie! emote and the awesome Crustacea armour set.

Desperate Measures

You know what they say, right? ‘Desperate Times’ call for ‘Desperate Measures’!

When it hits Gielinor next week, RuneScape’s newest quest will see you scouring the shores of Anachronia in search of Kerapac’s lair, unearthing long-buried secrets and defending against droves of dinosaurs.

To get started, you’ll need level 75 Combat and level 50 Archaeology and Agility. You’ll also need to have completed ‘Desperate Times’, the thrilling first instalment in the Elder Gods storyline.

You can catch up on the story so far right here in the dedicated newspost.

Account Security Changes

We’re making playing on the move a little easier.

When playing on mobile, you’ll no longer be asked to enter a Jagex authenticator code if you’re logging in with either a Google or an Apple account, or when using the ‘Play Now’ button to start the game.

The reason for this is simple: when you sign in with these products your account is already being authenticated, so the Jagex authenticator is an unnecessary step. This change lets the mobile client handle third-party log-ins the same way the website does.

If you currently use Google Login or Apple ID Sign-In, we recommend enabling their respective authenticators.

These changes will not prevent you from using your authenticator as a Bank PIN.

We’re of course still working on other changes that will improve account security across the board, and will update you when we have more specific information to share.

Cerberus Rush

We hope you’ve brought triple the treats this week because everyone’s favourite three-headed hound is back!

From July 23rd to Monday 27th you’ll have the chance to win some hellishly cool prizes – including Cerberus himself, now available in adorable, dribbly pet form.

Twitch Prime

This month’s Twitch Prime reward is a whopping four free Umbral Chests, each with a super-rare prize inside. There’s all sorts of goodies you can win, including some super snazzy cosmetics!
