Free Death Week Extended! - This Week In RuneScape

Written by developer on . Posted in RuneScape News

Free Deaths continue for another week as we make a few tweaks to Zamorak and bow down to our 100% Enrage champions! Meanwhile, be on the lookout for our Ultra Rare new Treasure Hunter prizes… check out all the details below.

Event: Free Death Week
Extended for another week!

We’re extending Free Deaths for another week. You have until July 18th to take on Gielinor's toughest bosses without fear!

Free Deaths means absolutely no penalty when you die – you'll only lose what you consumed in the fight itself. If you've never bossed before, this is your opportunity to give it a try, risk-free. If you’re a bossing veteran, it’s the perfect time to get in some practice!

Remember, we’ve brought in Free Deaths to celebrate the release of Zamorak, but you can take on any boss you like. Time to slay!

New Ultra Rare TH Prizes
Introducing Treasure Hunter: Foresight

This week's Treasure Hunter comes with the power of Foresight!

This promotion's unique feature is three chests with completely visible prizes, including a rarity and modifier that you can choose between!

But if that's not enough, we’re also introducing brand new prizes to add more valuable items to the rarer end of the prize pool. These goodies are very special indeed... if you can find them. You’ll have to be lucky because they’re super rare! Here’s what to look out for:

Superior Knowledge Bombs

These bad boys give you double XP for an hour, and can be activated whenever you want an explosive XP boost. Think of them as the big sibling of the Small Knowledge Bomb you already know and love (for its sweet 1.5x XP/hour buff) and note that the same restrictions apply – they can’t be used during Double XP promotions or to boost Prayer XP at a Gilded Altar, Chaos Altar, or with the powder of burials or auto-sanctifier.

Protean and Dummy Processors

The ultimate optimiser that allows you to process large volumes of Proteans or Dummies at once! It processes 2,000 Proteans or 75 Dummies in one action before breaking and works on any Protean or Dummy in the game.

How To Find Them

At present, these rewards only drop in the new Ultra Rare Prize category of this promotion – that’s one above Purple!

Because they're Ultra Rare, we've put them into boxes containing multiple items, to make any find truly special. Here are the Ultra Rare Prize Boxes for Foresight:

  • Box of Superior Knowledge Bombs: Contains 10 Superior Knowledge Bombs
  • Box of Protean Processors: Contains 5 Protean Processors.
  • Box of Deathtouched Darts: Contains 10 Deathtouched Darts
  • Box of Dummy Processors: Contains 5 Dummy Processors.

Zamorak Lord of Chaos Changes
Updates based on your feedback

We’ve been delighted to see so many of you taking on Zamorak, the Lord of Chaos – who knew so many of you were ready to fight a god?! Of course, we imagine Free Deaths helped a bit last week (though remember, Story Mode always has Free Deaths)...

As usual, we’ve been listening to your feedback. Changes based on your week one experiences can be found in the Patch Notes section below.

Zamorak World's First Race
Meet your 100% & 1000% Enrage Champions!

Last week we challenged you all to make those first kills on 100% Enrage and gosh, did you lot step up to the plate.

We witnessed an incredible, 8-hour race. Every second was nail-biting, and it was especially close at the end. We loved every minute of it!

The following players emerged victorious:

  • Solo: Thats Sus (Extra props for the Ironman status!)
  • Duo: Kehvo, Jiipee
  • Trio: Trenk, Linus, Olevando
  • Quads: Beta Fox, L E G O S, Y0Man, ManlyDied (also the first EVER 100% Enrage kill!)
  • Quintets: MIW, Glue, Stuman131, Lunge, Virius

But that wasn't the end, we had set a second goal further in the distance, for 1000% and the players absolutely smashed it out of the park in less then a week!

The following players claimed to the top:

  • Solo: African Herb
  • Duo: Talju, Smexylonely
  • Trio: Chai, Katnub, Wazzylicious
  • Quads: Bluudi, Az Liam, Wiz Tot, Shadofox
  • Quintets: P U P, Dmowo, Washly, G0att, Evil Lucario

Congratulations, you were all absolutely astonishing!

Patch Notes
Fixes and improvements in this week's game update

Zamorak, Lord of Chaos

  • Mobs inside the Zamorakian Undercity have had their health pools adjusted. Several will now start with a lower base HP but scale slightly harder. This will mean fewer hitpoints need to be dealt with at all Enrages, with Normal mode being the most affected.
  • Slightly changed the number of mobs on some dungeon gates, in particular reducing the number of demons that need to be killed at lower Enrages.
  • Addressed a safe spot within the fight with Eterna, Ritual Leader that kept players safe from her spiked floor traps.
  • Following feedback, several changes have been made to the Chaos Roar melee ability:
    • Ability now requires a target to cast and needs to hit in order to apply the buff meaning it's no longer an effective switch for non-melee players.
    • Deals a small chunk of damage 20-130%.
    • Updated the tooltip to reflect these changes.
    • Now works for ALL hits in AOE / Twin hit abilities
      • As an example, the Hurricane ability will now double against all targets.
      • For channelling abilities, only the first hit will be doubled.
  • Reduced the size of the portal clickbox within the Zamorakian Undercity cathedral.
  • Prevented an issue that allowed players who died to be pulled into phase seven while they were in the Zamorakian Undercity as their team mates transitioned into Infernus
  • Updated the Zamorak, Lord of Chaos total kills quickchat to reflect the amount achieved in group encounters.
  • Added a quickchat for Zamorak, Lord of Chaos total kills in solo, which will also output the player's highest Enrage.
  • Fixed an issue with the Flames of Zamorak attack spawning in incorrect locations.
  • Fixed an issue causing the Zamorak Boss to spawn his minions in the wrong locations.
  • Fixed an issue with the Zamorak reward chest not spawning for the players who died during the encounter.
  • Fixed a crash on Intel GPU devices when entering the Zamorak boss dungeon.
  • Fixed an issue with missing healing from the 'Guardian's Triumph' buff during the Zamorak encounter.
  • Fixed an issue where the Haste effect would not correctly reduce the cooldown of the Disruption Shield spell.
  • Corrected some typos on Zamorak’s Coven Generals Hex tooltip.
  • Fixed an issue with the 'Executed' hitplate, which was not displaying in the correct language on non-English clients.
  • Burnt Bones now work with the Bonecrusher item.
  • Hotfixed: Story Mode damage reduction is now applied correctly. For reference, the figure is 90% damage reduction compared to Normal Mode.
  • Hotfixed: Reduced the HP scaling of mobs within the Zamorakian Undercity by 66% in Enrage mode.
  • Hotfixed: Fixed an issue causing lower player attack range during phase seven, preventing some channelled abilities from being used.
  • Hotfixed: Fixed an issue that would prevent HiScores logging in some situations where a player died.
  • Hotfixed: Fixed a rare issue where players would be affected by Zamorak's world-ending AoE attack if they died and were outside the boss arena.
  • Hotfixed: Players who are at a certain point of the Vault of Shadows miniquest can now continue the Aftermath miniquest by speaking to Dr Nabanik.
  • Hotfixed: Resolved an issue that was stopping players from passing beyond 20% Enrage.
  • Hotfixed: Fixed an issue that was causing Hellhounds in the Zamorakian Undercity to drop Clue Scrolls at an unintentionally high rate. Bad doggies!


  • The Beach: Fixed an issue with the non-reset XP boost from Cocktails when they expire.
  • The Beach: Players can now get the drop from the skilling drop table while under the influence of advanced Cocktails.
  • Journey to Iaia: The section of the Iaia track background that went missing has now been safely returned!
  • Journey to Iaia: Fixed the issue with the 'PH' tag in the Band of Iaia item description.
  • Journey to Iaia: Fixed an issue causing the Familiar override checkbox to not persist when reopening the interface for Iaia Track Pets.
  • The amount of Herblore XP gained from Protean Shakes has been adjusted.
  • Descriptions of all Dinarrows have been updated to reflect their functionality.
  • Fixed an issue with script errors appearing upon opening Settings.

Requirements Changes

In the coming months, RuneScape will no longer support Windows 32-bit builds or graphics cards that do not support OpenGL 3.0 or higher. This change allows us to focus our technical development and testing resources on more commonly-used platforms.
