This weekend, spin the Squeal of Fortune and you’ll be in with a chance of winning the newly released TzHaar Whip!

Until now, only those with an Attack level of 70 or higher could wield a whip. The TzHaar Whip changes that: this awesome whip can be used by members from level 1, and now that Yelps has added it to the wheel, anyone can have a crack! Like the shark fists released during Sizzling Summer, the whip can be converted between level requirement tiers from 1-60, so it'll stay useful as you level.

The whip is a limited edition weapon, and can be won only until the end of December. No need to worry, though; between Friday and Monday there’s an increased chance of getting this unique weapon!

Yelps has another fantastic opportunity for you this weekend. Alongside an increased chance to win the newly released TzHaar Whip, you’ll have an increased chance of taking away pendants of skill related to the more aggressive combat disciplines. Pendants for Attack, Strength, Ranged and Magic are more likely to appear on the wheel, so you can boost your offense as the Evolution of Combat continues to change the combat landscape.

Your increased chance of winning the whip and pendants starts from Friday, December 7th at 00:00 GMT until Monday, December 10th at 23:59 GMT. You’ll be able to win the TzHaar Whip until Monday, December 31st , but this weekend is your best opportunity!

You can purchase spins here, or by clicking 'Add Spins' next to the Squeal of Fortune itself. Don’t forget that subscribing will bag you two daily spins instead of one. If you’re hunting for ways of getting extra spins, check out our Squeal of Fortune wiki.

I just hate limited items on the Squeal. It basically forces people to buy spins just to get items they want.

Agreed, somebody in my clan bought them.

Why people would waste money on runescape items when there's so many better uses I'm really unsure of. :s

Because it's their money and their decision. Some people spend their money on expensive clothing, cars, pets, hobbies, food, furniture etc when there are "many better uses" for the money. Fact is, everyone falls into some kind of category where they've spent more than the required, exceeding the level of necessity. So technically, nobody is in a position to classify what's a "waste" and what isn't when it comes to something as miniscule as SoF spins and positive personal enjoyment.

Everyone purchaces something that next person will never "understand".

I got mine, it's stats are sadly weaker than normal whip, the cosmetics are cool but really hard to see, could be better, could be worse. I really have no use for it.

Of course it's weaker than a normal whip.  The highest the tzhaar whip goes is level 60 while normal whip is level 70.  For high levels this is basically a cosmetic.  For low levels this can be a great melee training weapon that they can use all the way til they hit level 70. and won't have to bank to replace weapon when they level up since it can be upped in level on the fly.  Though I do agree the cosmetics are hard to see.

Ehh, I suppose so.

I'm more worried/slightly irritated the amount of kids which just go & use there parents credit card.

A lot of them still need to learn the value of money etc.

Judging by the past month, there seems to be an SoF and Solomon's store post once per week. I guess they have dialled it down a fair bit.

So it is basically a buy-able weapon. 1 step closer to RWT.

Well at least they're not giving away actual/improved versions of Overloads, as I initially thought in a moment of horror.

“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.”
