Double XP LIVE

Double up your XP Gains

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

The next Double XP LIVE takes place between Friday August 7th, 2020 (12:00 GMT) and Monday August 17th, 2020 (12:00 GMT).

Double XP LIVE 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!

RuneScape's brand new skill, Archaeology, is exempt from any XP benefits until October 2020, so you won't get any extra XP when training it. This is so players who love the race to 99 and 120 can do so on a level playing field.

Read on for full details about the event to make sure you make the most of its magnificent XP bonuses. See you in game!

How Does It Work?

Throughout Double XP LIVE, base XP for most combat and skilling activities is increased:

Any Restrictions?

The Double XP LIVE boost is not applied to the XP earned through the following items or activities:

  • Archaeology
  • Assist system
  • XP lamps
  • Tomes of experience
  • Ectofuntus
  • Cremation
  • Dragon rider amulet
  • Auto-sanctifiers
  • Brawling gloves
  • Player-owned house altars
  • Wilderness Chaos altar
  • Dungeoneering wildcards
  • Sacred clay
  • Urns
  • Ancient effigies

It also does not apply to XP rewards given on hand-in for the following activities:

  • Quests
  • Daily Challenges
  • Jade Vine
  • Strange and golden rocks
  • Other Distractions & Diversions
  • Harvesting animal produce from Player-Owned Farms

It does not apply to XP awarded on hand-in of points or tokens. Examples:

  • Slayer point rewards
  • Brimhaven Agility Arena tickets
  • Dungeoneering tokens

The Invention skill benefits differently to others:

  • 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

Ironman accounts do not receive an XP boost on Double XP Weekend.

Additionally the various skilling activities available as part of The Beach Event will not benefit from the Double XP boosts from Double XP LIVE when it begins.

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