Update log 07/09/19 - Wintertodt!

Recommended Posts




The Wintertodt is a minigame-style boss that is fought using skills rather than combat. It is located in the Northern Tundras in Great Kourend, bringing a storm of perpetual winter and unfathomable cold. According to the look-out, it is unclear what the Wintertodt actually is, but its ability to alter the weather to extremely low temperatures has earned it notoriety among the people of Great Kourend.

Players must assist pyromancers, a special group of Arceuus mages, to keep the Wintertodt at bay. As servants of the sacred flame, only they know the spells required to subdue the Wintertodt, so they are heavily relied upon in the defence of Great Kourend. While their magical abilities are extraordinary, their skills in other areas are limited, and thus require assistance from skilled adventurers.

In order to help subdue the Wintertodt, players are required to have at least level 50 in Firemaking. Skill levels in Herblore, Fletching, Woodcutting and Construction do not affect the speed of their related activities at all, however having higher levels grant more experience.

Wintertodt is here! After a few weeks of development (with it being put on hold for some other fixes and quality-of-life) it's finally ready!

It was written to be 1:1 with the original with a few minor changes to rewards.

All rewards are the same as on OSRS with a few changes:

  • All quantities are buffed by 40-50%
    • Pure essence has been increased even more
  • Higher tier items i.e. dragonstones and anglerfish have also been added
  • The base roll-amount is 3 (for 500 points) rather than 2
  • Emerald+ users get an extra roll
  • Dragonstone+ users get another extra roll
    • These both also apply to trading in unique items to Ignisia
  • Herblore secondaries have been added too, they are rarer than most other tables
  • If you hit the 'OTHER_SEEDS' table you have a 1/20 chance of receiving 1-2 spirit tree seeds
  • If you receive a bruma torch but already have at least 3 of them you will receive 2 torstal seeds instead
  • If you receive a pair of warm gloves but already own at least 3 pairs you will receive 2 magic seeds instead
  • Dragon axe chance is 1/7500 rolls
  • Phoenix pet chance is 1/3750 rolls
  • Tome of fire chance is 1/750 rolls
  • Bruma torch / warm gloves chances are 1/65 rolls
  • Pyromancer outfit piece chances are 1/75 rolls

You can get there by using a Games necklace or using the fairy ring code CIS and running north.

As construction is not yet released, fixing braziers will not grant construction experience.


Here's some random Wintertodt media to get you hyped up:
