Double XP Weekend
Double up your XP Gains
Join the RuneScape community for 72 hours of XP awesomeness in this much-loved skilling event.
Read on for full details of the event and make the most of its magnificent XP bonuses. See you in game!
The next double XP weekend is scheduled for 26th - 29th July!
How Does It Work?
Each Double XP Weekend lasts for 72 hours, during which base XP for most combat and skilling activities is increased:
- +100% for RuneScape members
- +20% for free players
The Double XP Weekend boost is not applied to the XP earned through the following items or activities:
- Assist system
- XP lamps
- Tomes of experience
- Dragon rider amulet
- Goldsmithing gloves
- Brawling gloves
- Player-owned house altars
- Wilderness Chaos altar
- Dungeoneering wildcards
- Sacred clay
- Ancient effigies
It also does not apply to XP rewards given on hand-in for the following activities:
- 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.
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.
Double XP Weekends are always a ton of fun, and are a great time to get stuck in and play alongside the whole RuneScape community.
