In this week’s Behind the Scenes video, we track down Mod Hew, who reveals all about the new king in town: we bring you the Kalphite King!

All this and much more, coming to RuneScape soon!
Come discuss it all on our forum thread. While you're there, why not have a guess at how many deaths there will be by the Kalphite King on his first day in game?
Happy New Year, everyone!

I remember way back in 08 when Corpral Beast was released. It took a good six months before someone could successfully solo it.

I wonder if KK is gonna be the same.

The concept art for the weapons are pretty awesome! :lmao:
Also can't wait for the desert tasks after the KK update. The amulet looks good too.

Desert Achievement Diary sounds more interesting. If it's a boss that can't be solo'd, would be an amazing update. Hope the items it drops are worth it >.<

I'm looking forward to the KK. The KQ is still one of the hardest bosses in RuneScape, despite how old she is, so I'm looking forward to seeing what Jagex can pull for the King. Plus more high level content is ALWAYS welcome!

He said the new weapons would be the best in slot available. I think its safe to say that they will be worth a pretty penny.

The Kq hasn't been hard for many years. The hardest part of the Kq is developing enough patience to wait for it to respawn.

Hard to say anything bad against it. The new weapons are nice, I love the colors of the kalphite king and it's gear. Looks like an involved fight. Yeah this update is promising.

Weird how something people don't recognized as a threat (Kalphites) be the strongest boss in the game. Hopefully the Kalphite King will tie into the lore of the Gods seeing as it's more powerful that the GWD/Nex.

Whats interesting is that the KQ was the strongest monster for a long long time. She was never really obsolete until Corp came out. I'm glad that they made the older bosses like KBD and KQ have interesting counterparts.

Ballsy move to come out and say the weapons will be BiS before the update has arrived.

Looks like an overall great concept though. I've felt that the lore of Runescape has been severely lacking any real depth for a long time now and bringing back an 'empire' such as the Kalphites is definitely a good way of reviving some of the underlying story-lines of the game. Unfortunately though I can't help but feel it's just going to be another boss in a room that just ends up being a loot pinata.
