The notorious gnome child returns with a bag full of OSRS birthday treats.
10 Years Old! OSRS Birthday Celebrations Filled With Gifts and Cameos
Jagex must be feeling pretty proud of themselves this week, as even the older/younger sister title to the iconic RuneScape, Old School RuneScape, is celebrating an anniversary that many MMOs could only dream of reaching. And as the OSRS birthday celebrations get underway, Jagex is inviting everybody to join in on the good vibes. Including some iconic characters from yesteryear.
Ten years is nothing to sniff at, so it's no wonder that OSRS will be introducing its first new skill later this year to mark the occasion. In the more immediate future, however, there are plenty of treats for players to get stuck into from now until March 15th.
Far be it from Jagex to forget that players are, first and foremost, heroes of Gielinor. And so no OSRS birthday celebration will be complete without the opportunity for them to save the day.
This year, the OSRS birthday adventure will see those heroes complete a "cake-off", which involves a whistle-stop tour across Gielinor while reprising the role of a Cook's assistant. It isn't the most intrepid of tasks, but what's a party without a cake? To add to the nostalgia, cameos from the Lumbridge Goblins, the Wizard of Wizard's Tower, and more fan-favorite characters and locations will feature throughout the journey.
For their efforts, players will be rewarded with goodies galore, including the esteemed Silver Party Hat, a cake hat (complete with caked-on icing), a "dragon candle" weapon, birthday balloons, and two half-jugs of wine, as well as plushies of Jad, the stray dog, and the impossibly iconic gnome child.
A slew of new cosmetics are also being flown in for the occasion, which will include an OSRS jumper, Bob the cat slippers, Jad slippers, a banner cape, and a gnome child backpack. Because you can never have too much gnome child! Jagex has even orchestrated a catwalk to showcase these stylish new threads. Enjoy!
