The beach event


The Summer Beach Party has returned to Lumbridge Crater once again, making it the place to be until the 12th September.
Along with your old favourites, there’s a new Treasure Map feature for daily free items, as well as two new activities: Terrorbird Racing and Hook-a-Duck, for Agility and Hunter XP respectively.

Welcome to the Beach

Activities

The fun, XP-giving passtimes from last year’s Beach Party have returned , along with some awesome new additions.
NEW – Terrorbird Races
Complete laps as quickly as you can for maximum Agility XP and a chance to be on the hiscores page, viewable by clicking on the start gate.
Pick up a terrorbird mount by the starting gate to get started, or use your (now recolourable) April Fools’ terrorbird mount.
Races start on the hour. Good luck!
NEW – Hook-a-Duck
Wield a rod and hook a duck for Hunter XP.
Fight Clawdia
The raging crustacean spawns every 45 minutes after the hour. Her damage scales to your current life points, so everyone can dive in and help drive her back.
Claudia can only be looted once per hour this year, and this is intentional. Last year caused a large amount of world lagging for people on various beaches as large groups would quickly swap between worlds to kill her. On top of this, it wasn’t the original design for the rewards she gives out.
Old Favourites

Of course, the summer fun from last year returns. Whatever you fancy training, there’s something for you:
•Sandcastles – Construction XP
•Rock pool fishing – Fishing XP
•Barbecues – Cooking XP
•Coconut gathering/depositing – Farming XP
•Coconut shy – Ranged XP
•Beachball rolling – Agility XP
•Muscle beach – Strength XP

  • Every 15 minutes one of the XP-giving activities will be spotlighted, yielding +10% XP. Please note that the spotlighted activity varies from world to world.
  • You can keep earning XP until your temperature gauge fills up completely, although this can be reset up to three times a day by consuming ice creams. You get them from skilling or you can buy them from other players.
  • Please note that Ironman players earn 50% less XP for participating in beach activities.
  • The fastest activity for xp/hour is the rock pool fishing.
  • JMods can activate Happy Hour on the beach to really get the party started. Happy Hour will spotlight all beach activities except for Terrorbird Racing and will freeze all temperature gauges, earning you a bonus hour of beach skilling!

    Treasure Map | Daily Rewards

The Treasure Map is a new feature which you can use to collect handy items each day from 16th August until 11th September.
Speak to Reyna in Lumbridge Crater to collect the map, then click it in your inventory to get started.
The interface will update each day to show another cross on the map, which can be clicked to claim the treasure.
There’s also the option to use a Bond to claim any prizes you have missed – see the right-hand side of the interface.
On the day of release, the location is legend’s guild (15th august)
Note that using the Bond option also allows you to claim any prizes you may miss later in the event, as they are released, up until the event ends. You will never need to use more than one Bond to unlock missed Treasure Map items.
Mod Shauny confirmed that ironmen can’t get the map from Reyna because they wouldn’t be able to claim the rewards anyway.

Rewards

There are a number of useful items that you can earn by fighting Clawdia and participating in other beach activities:
•Ice cream: This tradeable, consumable item resets a full temperature gauge to 0. You can use up to three per day.
•Anti-sun potion: Also tradeable, this item gives a +5% boost to any XP earned through beach activities and any other training on the beach. The effect lasts for 24 hours of real time.
•Cocktails: These come in four fruity flavours, each boosting XP gain in a different group of skills – combat, artisan, gathering and support. By drinking more of the same type, you can stack the XP boost up to 10%. The effect lasts for 30 minutes of logged-in time.
Please note: These items will be removed from game on the 3rd October.
There’s also a rare chance to get tradeable tokens that can be redeemed for one of several new beach items. Please note: The tokens will become untradeable at the end of this year.
