Quote taken directly from RuneScape.com

Social Slayer

Nothing brings people together like facing down a ravening horde of bloodvelds. As such, from today, you'll be able to pair up into two-player groups to take on slayer tasks.

To team up, simply use your enchanted gem or slayer ring on the player you wish to invite, or use the gem or ring's new 'co-op' right-click option and enter their name when prompted. As long as neither of you are on an active slayer task, or if you're on the same slayer task, you'll invite them to join your group. Note that you must be on the same world to team up.

Targets killed by you or your slayer partner will count towards your current task's kill count. Combat and Slayer XP won't be shared between you, but you'll burn through tasks in half the time and competition for kills will be less fierce.

Each time you complete a task in a slayer group, you'll earn a co-op point. These new points can be spent in the Slayer Rewards Store, accessible from any slayer master by right-clicking and selecting the 'rewards' option, and then selecting the 'co-op' tab. These rewards include two new pets: a cute - if slimy - baby aquanite, and a tiny strykewyrm by the name of Freezy. As well as this, you can unlock the permanent ability to share potion effects: drink a potion while your slayer partner is nearby, and they'll be granted half of the full bonus that the potion imparted to you. The ability to heal your group partner by using food items on them can also be unlocked. These two functions can only be used in designated slayer areas and while in a group, but they're a handy way to help out if your friend's flagging.

Friends who slay together stay together, so buddy up and cut a two-way swathe through RuneScape's monster population!

Requirements

  • You and your Slayer partner must be members.
  • You must either have no active slayer tasks, or you must be on the same slayer task.
  • You must both have completed at least one slayer task.

Preparing for the Gielinor Games

Preparations are proceeding apace for the Gielinor Games: a multicultural sporting spectacular that will bring the denizens of Gielinor together for a contest of endurance, dexterity and...well...cheese rolling.

Beleaguered site foreman Oomad Arrow needs all hands on deck. Free players and members alike can pitch in, making medals, producing construction components (only for members), and creating fine fusion cuisine; all vital for making the Gielinor Games an event to remember.

Speak to Oomad Arrow in Varrock square to get started. You can complete each of these three tasks once per day, each day until the Gielinor Games begin. You’ll earn plenty of Smithing, Mining, Cooking and Construction XP (for members) for helping out, as well as contribution points, which can be spent on some athletically themed rewards once the games kick off. Be sure to visit Oomad’s shop for a sneak preview!

Mod Dylan

In Other News
  • You can now access the Slayer rewards shop without having completed Smoking Kills. However, you must still have completed the quest to buy anything other than the new co-op rewards.
  • If you've had your private chat settings set to 'off' for a very long time, you may find that Slayer group invites are not blocked. To fix this, simply change your private chat to another setting, and then change it back to 'off'.

Hell yeah, I like this update. Esp the rewards (potion share and food share) are awesome.
(And I can get my friends to kill the hellhounds for me :devil: )

I'm wondering how much xp you get from that Gielinor game thingy.
Anyway, you can repeat it every day. That means some free smithing&construction xp :P

You get about 2k split between mining/smithing and mining/construction doing that prep work. I didn't watch how much cooking I got since I'm 99 lol.

I like it, especially Social Slayer. I'm just now really getting into Slaying, and one I get my embarrassing low slayer level up ( :sweat: ) I'll probably team up with some people.

Funny thing, it says your kills count towards the total given. Between the person I've been teaming up with and myself, we have noticed that sometimes it counts towards the total, and sometimes it does not and the thing will make you get the kills yourself to count.

Hello, this topic has been locked. There are many possible reasons for this...
  • the question you are asking has been answered,
  • you may have posted in the wrong forum,
  • the topic could be degenerating into/has already started a flame war,
  • the posts were straying too far from the original topic.
Your topic may have also expired. This means that no one has posted on it for a while, and it would be better to start a new topic to keep the conversation fresh.

This list of reasons that your topic may have been closed is given instead of a specific reason because moderators have the option to close multiple topics at once, with this standard reply added to the topic. This is much faster than closing multiple topics manually, and gives us more time for our other work.

If you have any further questions as to why this topic was closed, let me encourage you to check the FAQs, and to PM me if you do not find the answer there.

Have a nice RuneHQ day. :D
