RuneScape Prime Aura introduces more XP boosts
As the wait for Elder God Wars third front continues, developer Jagex adds additional content in RuneScape to help fill in the time. Today’s update for RuneScape introduced a few things, but the most notable addition is the new Prime Aura.
The Prime Aura is added as part of a new Twitch Prime collaboration event between the popular streaming platform and Jagex. RuneScape players will be able to claim the new aura if they have an active Twitch Prime subscription. The package will be exchangeable from September 22 to October 19.
What is Aura Prime?
Auras are objects in RuneScape which provide various impulses to certain activities. They typically only last an hour and have extended recharge times limiting their use. The Prime Aura is the latest to be added and it’s an experience-boosting aura for all of your skill needs.
When active, Prime Aura grants a fixed 10% experience bonus to all skills in RuneScape. It lasts thirty minutes and has a 24 hour 30 minute cooldown. Players who take advantage of the collaboration will also receive 400 RuneCoins and 20 Treasure Hunter Keys. These can be used in Soloman’s Store and the Treasure Hunter minigame, respectively.
There has been some controversy with this addition as it is not the first experience that stimulates microtransaction. RuneScape saw. In fact, the current Yak to the Creators Yak track already offers a 25% experience bonus when completed. Many players weren’t happy with this and the Prime Aura is unlikely to be received more positively by RuneScape players.
Otherwise, today’s update also features a second collaboration, this time with SteelSeries. Starting at 5:00 p.m. game time today, a Battleworn Steel Armor Set, along with a Currency Pack, can be claimed. Players do not need to own or purchase an existing SteelSeries product to take advantage of this promotion.
