It’s rare, but from time to time Jagex launches a Double XP Weekend for their very popular online MMORPG, Runescape. Double XP weekends are awesome, but have led to lots of confusion, myths and hearsay. I’ll explain what Double XP Weekends are, how the XP bonuses work and the best ways to prepare for Runescape’s Double XP Weekends.
What is Runescape’s Double XP Weekend?
Jagex decided to give their hardcore Runescape fans with Member accounts a XP bonus treat by introducing Runescape’s Double XP Weekends. Double XP Weekends give Runescape players a varying XP bonus that’ll allow Runescape players to temporarily gain extra experience when leveling skills.
When Does it Occur?
Runescape’s Double XP Weekends come “few and far between” and the dates for Double XP Weekends aren’t announced until a few weeks before they are launched. Rumors of Double XP Weekends are always on the lips of Runescape players and it’s best not to believe that a Double XP Weekend is approaching unless it’s been confirmed at the official Runescape website.

If you are confused, don’t worry – Jagex has incorporated an XP bonus feature that’ll let you know the current XP bonus allotted to your skill training in Runescape.
