Double up your
XP Gains

There's no better time to develop your RuneScape skills than Double XP.

Double XP is the most relaxing way to make the most of the skill grind. You get 48 hours of Double XP goodness to use however you like over the course of 10 days!

To get stuck in, simply log in at any time during the event. As soon as you're in-game, your XP timer will start ticking, and will stop the moment you log out. By giving you the flexibility to use your XP time as you wish, there's no need to worry about pulling an all-nighter or compromising any of your plans. Take your time, relax and enjoy those lovely skill gains!

    • Excavation & Screening XP are doubled
    • Players will not receive Double XP from restoring artefacts, tomes, research, mysteries or pylons.
  • Invention
    • Item XP is gained at +50%
    • Making items on a workbench (charge packs, siphons etc) gives +50% improved XP
    • Disassembling random items (logs, potions etc) will give +50% improved XP
    • Disassembling/siphoning equipment does not give improved XP
Other Details
Ironman accounts do not receive an XP boost in Double XP.

Finally, while stored Bonus XP itself is not boosted, it is still awarded alongside the boost from Double XP. So a member training a skill with stored Bonus XP on Double XP will receive +200% base XP.
