RuneScape’s Awesome April of Events continues with Combat Week. The event runs through April 26 and includes several combat buffs and boosts.

These buffs are no joke judging by what they offer. These include the following benefits you’ll experience this week:

  • No reclaim costs on death
  • No Ring of Death charges lost on death
  • Increased luck on the Rare Drop Table
  • Reduced cost of swapping Archaeology relics
  • Reduced Invention drain rate
  • Double Reaper Points
  • Double Slayer Points
  • Double Combat and Slayer XP

Additionally, it looks like Elder Overload golems have decided to squat in War’s Retreat. If you defeat them, you’ll receive the Elder Overload buff which lasts for one hour. If you have an Ironman account, you’ll experience the following buffs and benefits this week:

  • No reclaim costs on death
  • No Ring of Death charges lost on death
  • Increased luck on the Rare Drop Table
  • Reduced cost of swapping Archaeology relics
  • Reduced Invention drain rate
  • Double Slayer Points
  • Double Reaper Points

This also means that Ironman accounts won’t have access to Elder Overload golems and Double Combat and Slayer XP. The post also mentioned some upcoming changes to rented items. It looks like the Wealth Evaluator will be available for all players for free next week.

Additionally, several items will be available in Solomon’s Generatl Store and in-game. This means you won’t have to keep hopping out of your game to grab items. Finally, Morytania, Kharidian and Masterwork Music Boxes will be free for everyone. Make sure to grab yours if you don’t already have one.

RuneScape experienced a pretty obtrusive account lockout earlier with Jagex restoring several accounts. You can read about that whole saga here.
