A triple threat of bosses awaits intrepid trios of adventurers, as the first ‘raid-like’ experience launches in RuneScape.
June 2018 – RuneScape has today launched its very first Elite Dungeon, the Temple of Aminishi, which invites brave players to go solo or buddy up and defeat mobs, mini-bosses and a triple threat of aquatic antagonists, including a giant chained-up serpent – Seiryu the Azure Serpent, the spirit of water.
Located in The Arc archipelago, The Temple of Aminishi – and future Elite Dungeons – offers a greater level of accessibility than traditional in-game dungeons, including access for solo players for a greater challenge, and a story mode option that reduces enemy damage but decreases the chance of unlocking rewards.
The Temple of Aminishi is open to all RuneScape members, and players don’t need to be high-level. For RuneScape novices, a boat from Port Sarim will take them directly to Aminishi after the completing the ‘Impressing the Locals’ novice quest.
Those who do manage to overcome Seiryu, and the other bosses and mini-bosses, will secure a selection of rewards, including a new cosmetic outfit, weapon, tier 82-92 equipment, as well as raise their Dungeoneering skill and receive the title ‘Acolyte of Seiryu’.
Dave Osborne, Lead Designer, RuneScape, said:
“Elite Dungeons are a great way of delivering raid-like experiences without having to gather together a large group of friends and clanmates. The launch of the Temple of Aminishi offers a brilliant way to experience the continuation of The Arc storyline we began in RuneScape a couple of years ago, with a compelling tale and challenging bosses to overcome. We’re really excited to see what players think as they battle their way to Seiryu’s chamber and learn the secrets of the azure water serpent.”
The Temple of Aminishi will be quickly followed with a second Elite Dungeon, scheduled for the living game later in the summer. RuneScape is also currently holding its annual Summer Special promotion, giving players the chance to bag three months of membership for the price of two, Hellion Armour and three-month membership of Old School RuneScape. Further information on Summer Special can be found at the official RuneScape website.
