Double XP LIVE Returns on May 20th 2022
May 17 2022

The next iteration of Double XP LIVE is just around the corner – and this time it's got a brand new feature!

Great news, everybody: The next Double XP LIVE takes place between Friday 20 May, 2022 (12:00 GMT), and Monday 30 May, 2022 (12:00 GMT)! Over the course of the event you'll have the freedom to use your 48 hours of Double XP time at whatever pace you wish. Blast through it all in one weekend, take the time to fit those gains around your real-life adventures, or use the Pause Timer to take an in-game break - it's all up to you!  But there's more – for the first time, you'll also be able to convert some of your time into credit for Nic the Trader's Store!

Don't forget, you can now get Double XP from excavation and screening activities in Archaeology, and you'll get double the base Precision too.

DOUBLE UP YOUR XP GAINS
There's no better time to develop your RuneScape skills than Double XP LIVE.

To get stuck in, simply log in at any time during the event. As soon as you're in-game, your XP timer will start ticking, and will stop the moment you log out. By giving you the flexibility to use your XP time as you wish, there's no need to worry about pulling an all-nighter or compromising any of your plans. Take your time, relax and enjoy those lovely skill gains!

HOW DOES IT WORK?
Throughout Double XP LIVE, base XP for most combat and skilling activities is increased:

+100% for RuneScape members
+20% for free-to-play players

The Double XP LIVE boost is not applied to the XP earned through the following items or activities:

- Assist system
- XP lamps
- Tomes of experience
- Ectofuntus
- Cremation
- Dragon rider amulet
- Auto-sanctifiers
- Brawling gloves
- Player-owned house altars
- Wilderness Chaos altar
- Dungeoneering wildcards
- Sacred clay
- Urns
- Ancient effigies

It also does not apply to XP rewards given on hand-in for the following activities:

- Quests
- Daily Challenges
- Jade Vine
- Strange and golden rocks
- Other Distractions & Diversions
- Harvesting animal produce from Player-Owned Farms

It does not apply to XP awarded on hand-in of points or tokens. Examples:

- Slayer point rewards
- Brimhaven Agility Arena tickets
- Dungeoneering tokens

The Archaeology & Invention skill benefits differently to others:

ARCHAEOLOGY
- Base Precision will be doubled (this means double projects per hour from excavation).
- Excavation & Screening XP are doubled
- Players will not receive Double XP from restoring artefacts, tomes, research, mysteries or pylons.

INVENTION
- Item XP is gained at +50%
- Making items on a workbench (charge packs, siphons etc) gives +50% improved XP
- Disassembling random items (logs, potions etc) will give +50% improved XP
- Disassembling/siphoning equipment does not give improved XP

Ironman accounts do not receive an XP boost in Double XP LIVE.

Finally, while stored Bonus XP itself is not boosted, it is still awarded alongside the boost from Double XP LIVE. So a member training a skill with stored Bonus XP on Double XP LIVE will receive +200% base XP.
