Dragon claws for tournament worlds
Tournament worlds just got a little more intense. Dragon claws are now available in supply chests!
Dragon claws require 60 Attack to wield and provide the following stats:
- Stab attack: +41
- Slash attack: +57
- Crush attack: -4
- Magic attack: 0
- Range attack: 0
- Stab defence: +13
- Slash defence: +26
- Crush defence: +7
- Magic defence: 0

The special attack of the dragon claws, slice and dice, hits 4 times in quick succession with great accuracy. This special attack makes claws a fantastic K.O. weapon and one which is well worth the trip to a tournament world to try out!
Dragon claws will be present in tournament worlds until the worlds are removed at the start of March. Get in while you can and have some fun with this iconic RuneScape weapon!
3rd birthday event
A familiar face is having a bit of trouble with a misplaced item and is in need of your help. Head to Lumbridge castle and talk to gnome child in order to get started with this year's birthday event!
For completing this event you will receive the rewards from the past two birthday events (the warship and cow suit) as well as a brand new reward: gnome child's hat!
Dismantling Zulrah rewards
It is now possible to dismantle Zulrah rewards, giving you 20,000 Zulrah scales in exchange for each item. The following items can be dismantled:
- Serpentine visage
- Serpentine helm
- Tanzanite fang
- Toxic blowpipe
- Magic fang
King black dragon instances
The lever which teleports you into the lair of the King Black Dragon has a new option to open up a private instance of the lair.
Opening an instance costs 50,000 coins. You must have coins in your inventory in order to pay this fee.
Once you leave the instance, or log out within it, it will close and you will be required to pay another 50,000 coins if you would like to create another.
Please note: Items dropped or abandoned inside an instanced lair will be permanently lost.
