As the Christmas holiday season approaches, we’re braving icy winds and frostbite to ensure this year’s Christmas is aura-some, with the Festive Aura!

Not only does this aura look cool as ice; activating it gives you an incredible bonus every single day of December: 30 minutes to rake in XP with a massive 50% boost!

Start the month with membership and you’ll get your hands on the aura on December 1st. Details of how you'll get the aura are coming soon. Join on any other day of the month and it’ll be yours the moment your membership starts!

What’s more, every Saturday and Sunday in December is a Winter Weekend, each featuring a hearty bonus for members, starting with this weekend - December 1st and 2nd - with double drops on bosses! There are five weekends in total, with members' bonuses including double Dungeoneering XP and double minigame rewards to come. Watch this space for further updates.

December is already set to be an incredible month with the launch of our Tzhaar Grandmaster Quest: The Brink of Extinction, Player-Owned Ports, plus our awesome Xmas 2012 Stray Dog event. To grab your aura - with its 50% XP boost every day in December - click here and become a member today.

Let the festive season begin!

I'm searching for a someone named Jaybear, we used to eat HAM all day at bosses and I believe this weekend we'll be stuffing our bellies with some delicious pig again.

lolursopunny.

But your boss hunting comment now makes more sense to me.  I'll go bawzz hanting mit u gais :-D Hopefully they do a thing like last time, where it's double DG XP AND double boss drops.  It's doubtful, but meh, a boy can dream.  Especially when he's 15m off 200m DG :-D

Well they did say double Dungeoneering experience will be sometime this month along with double minigame rewards. So leggo HAM with Dungeoneering too! I just wish it was double Dungeoneering tokens too...

And didn't you say you suck at PvM literally 10 minutes ago in PM?

Don't twist my words boy... I said "I'd lose" at PvMing.  That is COMPLETELY different from saying I suck :-P On the contrary, I am in between decent and bad.  Suck is at the end of the spectrum.

Even the best must lose some time... Else the game is rigged.  PvM weekend commence!!

I guess now is as good a time as any to start bossing. Woo!

Are there any limitations on the XP from the Aura?
The Festive Aura has a few limitations. You can get your 50% XP boost for 30 minutes each time and has a daily limit of 50k XP. The recharge time is a little under 24 hours to allow you to use it at roughly the same time every day. Also, it will work for all skills including Dungeoneering.

When I first saw that the bonus was capped at 50k I thought the aura wouldn't be that useful. But even with that limit, its possible to get over 1.5 million bonus xp through the entire month.

When it say double drops does it mean twice as likely to get a rare or you could get two Bandos Chest Plates from one kill?

If its exactly like the last double drop weekend, it will be two bandos chest plates in one kill. Every kill is doubled, meaning two ourg bones, two rune plates etc.
