Spring Festival & Frank's Free Chest 2 - This Week In RuneScape

Written by developer on . Posted in RuneScape News

Spring is in the air! Time to celebrate with eggs and pirates the classic combination.

Spring Festival
Spring is in the Air

The Spring Festival returns from today until April 16th. As in previous years, the Festival will be held in the area south of the Archaeology Guild, where you’ll be able to gather up Spring Tokens, take part in Clue Hunts, and battle the Giant Butterfly. Wait, what was that last one?!

Lost Easter Basket

For the duration of the Spring Festival, you’ll randomly receive maps to Lost Easter Baskets while going about your regular adventures – although you’ll have a higher chance to receive these elusive goodies while participating in the Spring Festival activities. You can also purchase maps with Spring Tokens.

Tracking down the Basket will give you a chance at the new Skilling Pet Bunny Ear Token, which lets you add adorable bunny ears to any of your skill pets! Other prizes include a colourful Easter Egg, or the Basket itself, plus two items from the following list:

Frank's Free Chests Round 2
Are ya ready, ‘Scapers?

Back in January, Redbeard Frank asked players to gather up keys, open his chest, and earn extra prizes. A fun time was had by all, but Frank reckons life could always be funner, so he went back to the drawing board and came back with a bunch of new prizes!

We’ve also made some changes to make sure this event is more engaging than ever based on your feedback to the first run.

To start with, players will no longer use Keys, as they caused confusion over how and when the Chest would be available. Instead, we’ve introduced Bits of Eight. For every four Bits of Eight you collect, you’ll get a roll on the new loot tables – yes, that’s tables plural. Just as in the previous version of this event, you’ll earn one Bit every day on login, and one per hour played to a maximum of 16 Bits of Eight per week. Every 16 Bits you earn will reward you with Pirate Plunder, so you’ll earn rewards throughout the month, not just when you open the chest. You’ll also get a Pirate Plunder the first time you log in!

Pirate Plunder contains one title from the Doubloons title list*, an item from either the Regular or Special loot tables below, and a random selection of piratey cosmetics!

We’ve also aimed to improve communication around this event and reduce the noise by adding Bits of Eight directly to your Currency Pouch – except for the first one you earn each week, which will go straight into your Backpack. We’ve also cut down on the number of info boxes that appear when you receive a Bit.

*The Pirate Plunder obtained via the first login does not contain any of the Doubloon titles.


It’s double the fun this time around with two loot tables instead of one! As you collect Bits you’ll roll on each table in an alternating pattern – first Regular, then Special. Collect all 64 Bits available in the event and you’ll get eight rolls on each table.

We’ve expanded the tables to include new items, including currently unobtainable ones like the Phantom Deathbeard Outfit Token and the individual Deathbeard Outfit pieces!

Phantom Deathbeard Outfit Token Scurvy Pet Tradeable Token Jolly Roger Cape Deathbeard Outfit - Individual Slot Tradeable Tokens
Two-Handed Swordfish Huge Cash Bag* Player-Owned Farm Time Skips Auto-Unlock Deathbeard Transformation Emote if the last of the above 10 tokens is unlocked.
