Summoning brings with it some massively helpful perks and bonuses. If you're looking to make some headway in your Summoning skill - perhaps to help unlock that awesome familiar you've been working towards - Yelps has it covered. It’s all Summoning, all this weekend on the Squeal of Fortune!

This Summoning spectacular brings of a range of bonuses:
  • All gold prizes (with the exception of the 200 million jackpot) have been swapped out for spirit shards for the weekend. Not only are the shards we're offering crucial for making Summoning pouches - they’re worth double the gold they’re replacing!
  • Secondly, you’ll have an increased chance of winning Summoning training material packs all weekend, as well as pouches tailored to your specific level. There'll also be a rare chance to win some of the more sought-after pouches that you wouldn't ordinarily find on the Squeal of Fortune - also tailored to your level - including pack yaks, obsidian golems, war tortoises, and more!
  • Finally, use an XP lamp on your Summoning skill and it’ll yield double XP! This applies to both Summoning-specific and regular lamps.
You’ll find all of these on the Squeal of Fortune, starting Friday 25th January 00:00 GMT until Monday 28th January 23:59 GMT. You can purchase spins here, or by clicking 'Add Spins' next to the wheel in Squeal of Fortune. Don’t forget that subscribing will bag you two daily spins instead of one!

Didn't they just say they were going to stop focusing so much on Squeel + Solomon only news posts?

How about fixing summoning so 90% of the familiars aren't useless? Nope... this is just as good....?

was that even 24hrs lol?


Looking back, we definitely had too many promotions and giveaways in 2012. Though we carefully balanced the Squeal of Fortune, promotions like Sizzling Summer gave away too much. I think we got the Festive Aura & Winter Weekends about right, though. In 2013 we will be more cautious: these events should feel special and bring the community together, so we'll make them less frequent, more fun and ensure that they don't undermine your hard-earned achievements.

Well, can't say I didn't see this coming. I just hope these updates are coming to a halt ASAP.

They made a post on RSOF saying they were planning on updating Summoning in the future, since the skill works pretty well I guess their update will involve making some pouches more useful, including combat familiars if they were changed by the ge.

Woo, time for me to keep up with my quest of training that skill to 99 without making a single pouch.

“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.”

I don't like SoF, but I don't care anymore.
I just don't like how aggresive jagex is against F2P players to become member, it's sad so very sad.

What I want to know is, why has nobody posted the bts 37 video that gave a look into "sink holes"; Which seems to be a preview of Jagex's own form of gambling and possible removal of the gambling system (flower hosting) we currently have. Seems like a much better topic to discuss and speculate on than the usual updates with the squeal of fortune..

Someone has boinked Yelps on the head right after he wrote his New Year's resolution. Did the green elf go crazy again?

Meh, over the course of the weekend my daily spins gave me a bit over 10k shards, so I'm not complaining. As much as I despise sof, like pretty much every other sane person, I've accepted that it's not going anywhere so I might as well use up those free spins whenever I get them. It is kinda nice to have some variation in what's on the wheel now and then since constantly getting 1k or 5k gp gets old. But I agree that it shouldn't flood the news column. Instead, why not give sof/solomon's their own little slot on the side bar, under the youtube or events slots? That way those who care can check them and those that don't won't be bothered by them.
