RuneScape 3 is here! A new age dawns today, kicking off with the Battle of Lumbridge. Along with the hugely customisable New Interface System, the chance for fame in Seasonal Hiscores, over 6 hours of new live performed music and a range of technical improvements, it’s time to play RuneScape your way.Unless you’re currently in tutorial mode, you’ll be teleported straight to Lumbridge upon log-in. Once you’re there, you’ll see – in no uncertain terms – that the 6th Age has started with a bang. You’ll meet Kara-Meir upon arrival. She’ll explain what has happened to the landscape surrounding Lumbridge; why all-out war has broken out between two powerful factions; and what you can do to help.
You’ll be able to join one of the two factions, and to collect divine tears – fragments of condensed, Guthixian energy that can be gathered through combat and skilling, both on the battlefield and off.Each day you can collect a set amount of divine tears for your faction – more if you’re a member – and the side which has collected the most after ten weeks will emerge victorious.Please note: the Battle of Lumbridge is a huge event spanning more than two months, which will change week to week depending on your actions. For full details of what you can do, speak to the NPCs in your faction’s camp and in Lumbridge, and look out for notifications in-game.
For a full guide to the Battle of Lumbridge, you can take a look at the wiki. Be aware that there will be some visual spoilers, though – we strongly recommend logging in and taking a look around first!There’s also an FAQ that can be found on the forums. Again – bear in mind that there will be spoilers, so log in first and take a look around.Along with the opportunity to take part in this world-shaking battle and to take a hand in shaping the new age, there are some fantastic rewards on offer too. As you contribute divine tears to your cause, you’ll earn renown, which can be exchanged by your faction’s quartermaster for XP lamps, hybrid armour that scales with your Defence level up to 75, emotes, titles and much more. The selection of rewards will expand as the weeks go on, so be sure to take part for as long as the battle rages.
History is written by the victorious, and new worlds forged with courage and steel.
