Think you know RuneScape inside out? Do you prefer to be completely self-sufficient? If you’re the RS version of Bear Grylls, we have something for you at the end of this month.
Taking inspiration from the popular community-invented ‘Ironman Challenge’ we’re creating an official mode for it within RuneScape. This is an experimental project, so we expect lots of feedback,rs accounts, and if it proves popular we may further enhance this first version.
On account setup, you’ll be able to choose between Ironman and Hardcore Ironman modes. These can be toggled off but never on.
Ironman Mode stops you from trading, using the Grand Exchange, staking in the Duel Arena and gaining XP in several multiplayer situations. Basically, you’re on your own. Anything you want to use or fight with, has to be made or gained by you. You must be utterly self-sufficient.
Hardcore Ironman adds a twist. If you die, you will not be able log back into that character again. Death is a very final, permanent end, so you better think twice before you wander into a hazardous situation. Think seismic wands are a cinch to get hold of? Try to get one – we double-dare you.
Ironman and Hardcore Ironman players will be identified in-game via a unique chat badge, similar to the Premier Club badge, and hiscores will celebrate the most iron of men and women. Let’s see who rises to the challenge.
