You’ll have a chance at double XP when the Double XP Live event goes live in RuneScape on February 19.

The event will run from February 19 through March 1. During this time, you’ll be given the chance to use your 48 hour Double XP boost. This means you can run through it in one weekend if you want, or you can take your sweet time and pace yourself.

There are, however, restrictions on which activities you can this double XP. For example, you cannot apply it towards the assist system, XP lamps, Tomes of experience, and more. For the full list, click the link above. During the event, RuneScape members will receive 100% more XP. If you’re a free to play player, you’ll receive a 20% boost to XP.

As a reminder, you can receive Double XP through excavation and screening activities in Archaeology. You’ll also receive double base Precision. And in case you missed it, be sure to check out Jagex CEO, Phil Mansell, as he discussed his thoughts on the Carlyle Group acquisition.
