Community Consultation Update & One Special Day - This Week In RuneScape

Written by developer on . Posted in RuneScape News

Have your say in the Community Consultation for Hero Pass and check out the One Special Day bundle to support Special Effect!

Hero Pass Consultation Begins
Shape The Future of Hero Pass

We're setting out on a journey to make Hero Pass a better experience and ensure it’s something that you, the players, feel is delivering on it's stated intents.

Over the coming weeks, we’ll be working with the community in various ways to help us improve Hero Pass for the future.

Step One: The Survey

This is where it’s over to you. We’ve been listening intently to your conversations, and to take things further, we’ve launched our initial Hero Pass Consultation Survey.

This survey offers a more in-depth, collated way to understand how players from across the community feel in addition to your existing feedback. This is your opportunity to tell us how you feel about various elements of Hero Pass, with structured questions combined with areas to input your thoughts at length.

We’d love for you to approach this with an honest, constructive mindset – the more constructive you are, the more insight we gain to guide our first design iterations. Thank you to anyone who spends time to share your thoughts. We really appreciate it.

Step Two: Player Panels

While we’ll share more details on this stage later, our next step will be to begin working on design proposals based on your feedback.

We will then consult with Player Panels to help gather initial thoughts and guidance on our proposed directions, refine them further, and begin sharing our designs with the wider community.

As a final note, this work is being undertaken by the Hero Pass development team. This consultation process will not be taking away from upcoming content plans – and we’ll be revealing the first details of our next Quest in October very soon.

Hero Pass: Underworld Updates
Daily Challenges & Rebalancing

As promised in our Interim Updates for Hero Pass, there are two bigger fixes dropping coming to the pass.

Firstly, Daily Challenges will be back next week on the 9th. Daily Challenges will work just as they used to – including Keys, Lamps and Streak rewards. Lamps will be removed from Daily Missions alongside this change, given their introduction was a holdover until we could reintroduce the Daily Challenge system.

Secondly, following on from our balancing proposal, we have rebalanced Hero Pass to take a significantly reduced time of around 40 hours of gameplay.

Highlights of the rebalancing include the reduction of Heroic Levels 100-120's Hero Point requirements to 1000 Hero Points, matching levels 1-99, with Mission Rewards getting a substantial boost in Hero Point returns.

All information regarding the new balancing can be found here.

Board Game and TTRPG Pre-Orders Are Up!
Get yours in now

The RuneScape Kingdoms board game and table top roleplaying game are available now to pre-order from Steamforged Games

RuneScape Kingdom TTRPG

Featuring a specially-crafted system and an in-depth guide to the world of Gielinor, this complete core book has everything a budding ‘Scaper needs to run authentic RuneScape roleplaying campaigns.

Whether you're a seasoned game master or just dipping your toes into the world of roleplaying, this guide has you covered. From full character creation rules and extensive crafting system to iconic weapons and spells, plus a bestiary teeming with monsters and bosses you'll learn to love (and hate) all over again — all of Gielinor is yours to (re)discover!

By pre-ordering, you’ll get immediate access to the next-to-final PDF of the core book. You can start playing right away! Please note this PDF is still going through the final polish phase. So, for those who’d like to, this is an opportunity to let us know about any typos you might spot before the final book goes to print. After all, hundreds of eyes together have formidable power!

Standard and Deluxe versions are both available to pre-order now - here.

RuneScape Kingdoms: Shadow of Elvarg Board Game and Expansions

We first announced the board game on Kickstarter in 2022, and thousands of you backed the project. You’ve helped make it a reality - now it’s ready for pre-order!

1-5 players can explore the sometimes epic, often irreverent world of Gielinor in a series of cooperative campaigns. Quest, skill, encounter memorable characters, craft awesome gear — get distracted by side quests — and become the kind of ‘Scaper you want to be.

The core board game comes with 14 beautifully sculpted miniatures and 4 replayable campaigns. A deluxe expansion as well as KBD, Kalphite Queen, Zuk and Culinaromancer expansions are also available.

The special Kickstarter prices have passed, but - for a limited time only - you can grab a Deluxe Bundle, which features online exclusives. Think limited edition dice, neoprene maps and battlegrounds, wooden tokens, and some snazzy metal ‘gold pieces’!

World Mental Health Day

World Mental Health day falls on October 10th, and usually we create a bundle in store to support this wondrous event through our charity partners such as Mind CPSL, Blueprint For All and RAD (Rise Above the Disorder).

However, this year we will instead be donating 100% of the proceeds from sales from both Solomon's Store and the Marketplace during October directly to our partner charities! (This would not include the proceeds from the One Special Bundle as those would still go to Special Effect).
