We're proud to present two fully voice-acted quests featuring the adventuring enchantress Ariane: one for free players and members, replacing the old Rune Mysteries quest, and an all-new quest for members. If you like your quests full of magic and discovery, and your heroines as erudite as they are headstrong, read on.

Rune Mysteries (free to play)

Posted Image

Ariane's had premonitions ever since she was a child, but lately her visions have shown her just one thing: the Wizards' Tower - her former home and place of study - in flames. Sure enough, there are already magical creatures manifesting and attacking the wizards, and Ariane's convinced that Archmage Sedridor's plan to purge the tower will trigger the disaster she foresees. Ariane's banned from entering the Wizards' Tower, so she needs your help to open the archmage's eyes to the truth.

You'll delve deep into the ruins of the very first Wizards' Tower, which was once home to four distinct orders: the serene Blue Wizards; the wise Green Wizards; the free-thinking Red Wizards and the analytical Grey Wizards. You'll need to solve the puzzle of how to enter, and decide what sort of mage you are to unlock the old tower's secrets and save the new one from its fiery fate.

Rewards include a magical staff that's handy for low-level mages, as well as a unique wizard's hat and title, both of which reflect the magical order you aligned yourself with in the old tower (you'll have the opportunity to change this, if you wish).

How to start Rune Mysteries:

Speak to Ariane in the lobby of the Wizards' Tower.

Requirements:

None.

Rune Memories (members only)

At the end of Rune Mysteries, Ariane found herself in a bit of a bind, and now she needs your help once more. You'll fully explore the arcane ruins beneath the Wizards' Tower and experience - through the memories of its former inhabitants - the clashes of magical ideals that led to the old tower's downfall. Dig deep enough and put together the pieces of this ancient puzzle, and you'll have all you need to free Ariane and avert the disaster once and for all.

Rewards for this members-only quest include a full set of magical robes to accompany the last quest's hat, as well as access to Archmage Sedridor's personal rune essence chest, which will grant you rune essence every time you level up in Runecrafting. This is applied retroactively if you've already levelled the skill, and by 99 you'll have received a mighty 24,750 essence in total! Those of you with very high Magic, Prayer and Runecrafting will find further, hidden rewards - ask around the tower once the quest's complete.

How to start Rune Memories:

Speak to Ariane in the ruins beneath the Wizards' Tower.

Requirements:

You must be a RuneScape member.

Wizards' Tower and Runecrafting Guild Rework

Posted Image

While you're enjoying the Ariane Quest Double Bill, be sure to take a tour of our magnificently reworked Wizards' Tower and RuneCrafting Guild. Four storeys high and resplendent in its firmament-piercing finery, with animated, floating bookcases and the bustle of arcane academia, the new tower is some of our Graphics team's most stunning work to date. The Audio team have worked their wizardry too, with a medley of new musical tracks and amazing voice acting for the tower's most talkative inhabitants.
Enjoy!

Although all that I really do anymore is DG, I'm kind of glad that they updated it today and made it so it wasn't almost impossible to die.

“People are continually pointing out to me the wretchedness of white people in order to console me for the wretchedness of blacks. But an itemized account of the American failure does not console me and it should not console anyone else. That hundreds of thousands of white people are living, in effect, no better than the "African Americans" is not a fact to be regarded with complacency. The social and moral bankruptcy suggested by this fact is of the bitterest, most terrifying kind.”

Damn that sucks about Void armor being nerfed. I hope it's still viable to kiln since I still need to complete it. Looking forward to experiencing new quests and graphics though.

That's a huge nerf to Void. Wow... I was really hoping that Void would reign supreme for a while, but short lived as it seems. People might still be able to Barrows or something small, but I think bossing might be outta line.

If it's an aura then it will have an activation time and a cooldown time. It will probably be an hour of 50% XP boost with a 23 hour cooldown.

EDIT: Accord to Mod Pips (QFC - 16-17-511-64118713 - page two, post two), it will be a 30 minute aura that can be used every day.
