'Succession' Quest & Winter Trials Yak Track! - This Week In RuneScape

Written by developer on . Posted in RuneScape News

It’s like Christmas come early: the final quest of the year lands today, and the new winter Yak Track is here too! Here’s everything you need to know.

New Quest: Succession
The Legacy of Zamorak storyline concludes

This is it – the final quest of 2022. It’s time for Succession!

This adventure closes out the Legacy of Zamorak storyline. Team up with Adrasteia and help her track down Bilrach before he completes his ritual and becomes unstoppable!

Conquer this quest and you'll get access to the mobility heaven that is the Dive ability – an alternative version of Bladed Dive that can be used by all combat styles in any situation where you can't currently use that classic move.

You’ll also earn a host of XP rewards and the final Infernal Puzzle Box upgrade!

To begin your quest, speak with Adrasteia in Falador.


  • Daughter of Chaos Quest completed.
  • Infernal Puzzle Box Tier 5 unlocked (i.e. you’ve completed Civil War miniquests I-III).
  • 60 Mining and Smithing.

Yak Track: The Winter Trials
Including new Yak Track Shop

Our latest Yak Track lands today, packed with new winter-themed cosmetics and bonuses! Either optimise your play through task chasing, or simply reap rewards for your usual activities with ‘skill and chill’ tasks at every level!

Get your mitts on some ice-cool rewards including combat overrides, frosty pets, Fremennik and Mahjarrat-themed cosmetics and more.

This time we’re also introducing a brand-new currency – just the thing to spend in the equally shiny new Yak Track Shop!

Earn Yak Coins every five tasks and from repeatable end tasks. Then head to the new shop and browse every cosmetic item from Yak Track 2 to Yak Track 10! This new store is your one-stop shop for all things Yak, so all existing Yak Track items in the Oddments Store will be moving here too.

Got all the retro swag you needed the first time? There are alternative versions of some of the new cosmetics and XP boosts that you can pick up there too.

Remember, Coins expire one week after the Track finishes, so make sure you use them up!

Yak Track: The Winter Trials runs from today until Jan 29th.

Maintenance Notice
December 6th on limited worlds

We're conducting some planned maintenance to local game world servers in Las Vegas and Sydney on December 6th.

Worlds based in Las Vegas and Sydney will be offline from 11:00 Game Time, with work planned for approximately 5 hours.

No other worlds will be offline, and no other disruptions are expected.

Advent Calendar
Daily keys and a special cosmetic override!

Have you been opening your doors yet? Remember that you get a free Key each time, so it’s well worth keeping your daily appointment. And on top of that, opening 15 doors this month will get you the Portable Snowfall Aura override!

20 more days to go…
