December Week 1
At the start of December Jagex released a new GrandMaster quest called The Brink Of Extinction which was a high level quest for members. It was to end the tzhaar quest chain and was fully voice acted. Rewards included Obsidian Armour which was high level armour and also a new minigame which pitted players against high level rock creatures. To do the quest players needed the following requirements: 80 Defence, 80 Smithing and 72 Mining, also the quest: The Elder Kiln needed to be completed first. Also runescape announced their first plans for winter festivities, Winter Weekends. Winter Weekends take place every weekend this month and every weekend gives different rewards like for instance double drops or xp.
December Week 2
In the second week of December, Jagex talked about the release for Player owned Ports which is closely related to Player owned Houses. PoP is a management minigame where players get to look after their very own port. With the help of an Npc they can take control of a dusty old harbor marketplace and turn it back into a stunning place for intrepid adventurers renowned throughout the world of Runescape, also they can take control of boats and their crew and send them to The Eastern Lands and bring back lots of loot and rewards. Players do not go to the lands themselves but wait for their ships to return and using the right combination between ships and crew can yield better rewards in a quicker time. A possible reward for PoP is the best armour sets in the game currently, Death Lotus for ranged, Tetsu for melee and SeaSingers for Magic. It should be noted that in order to start PoP players will need 90+ in one of six skills these include: Herblore, Fishing, Slayer, Runecrafting, Prayer or Thieving.
December Week 3 And 4
For the last two weeks Jagex have released their official winter quest which always features humorous story lines and lots of gifts for players. This year players can help save dogs at this festive time. Players start of by talking to a blue santa imp which is voice acted and has a good story with a cockney accent to go with it. Players will be sent to rescue stray dogs and turn them into reindeer-dogs. For doing this you can then choose a place to make a kennel and have a dog in it which can be visited all year round and the kennel is fully customizable from dog bowls to the colors of the hut. Not to mention he gives a gift of giving that when traded with others can bag players 200k of bonus hunter xp enough to get a player from level 1 to 55 just from bonus xp!
