Death Door is This Year Halloween Event

Oct-23-2014 PST

Death Door is This Year Halloween Event and you can play it in RuneScape right now.


Help Death repel a ghostly invasion of his home, using specialised ghosthunting equipment to dismiss the unwelcome dead before you're reduced to a gibbering wreck. Earn points and trophies to be spent on XP lamps, gear that gives bonus damage against ghosts, the ability to burn bones on a bonfire for Prayer and Firemaking XP, and more.


Read on for the full, gory details! How to Play:

Find Muncher by the Burthorpe Lodestone, and speak to him to head to Death's house.

When you get there, you'll find that Death's beset by an invasion of ghosts  unleashed by Melzar the Mad and that he's powerless to exorcise them himself.

He'll hand you a proto pack  the very latest in ghosthunting technology  and set you to work banishing his unwelcome guests.

Examine the furnishings and ghosts will start to manifest, but beware: each hit you take will increase your fear meter displayed in your minigames HUD window.

If the fear meter hits 100% you'll run screaming back to Death, and lose 20 of your hardearned reward points.

You can reduce fear gradually by standing in moonlit areas of the house, or by using comforting items found in chests around the house.

Some ghosts are tougher than others and some have insidious special abilities, but the stronger they are the more points you'll earn for ousting them. Refer to the Ghostpedia from your minigames HUD to find out more.



Chests will appear around the house every 10 minutes. You'll be told via the minigames HUD when there's one to find, and you'll have two minutes to get to it and claim its loot. They can contain:

Chocolates, teddies and night lights: comforting items that reduce your fear level when used.
Active ectoplasm: grants a temporary buff to your damage against the ghosts in the event.
Demonic traces: five of these will let you summon demonic ghosts  the scariest and most rewarding spectres you can face.
Ectoplasmators: there's a rare chance to get this handy item  which gives Prayer XP when fighting ghosts  if you don't have one already.
Ghostly essence: this very rare substance can attune your ectoplasmator (or recharge one that's already attuned), improving its abilities.

Other loot: including bones and seasonal sweets.


You'll get points for each ghost you dismiss. Muncher or Death will give you the following rewards in exchange for these:
Ghost hunter gear: a fourpiece hybrid set that gives bonus damage and combat XP against ghosts fought outside the minigame. Its stats increase at level 50 and 70 Defence.
Cremation ability: this permanently unlocks the ability to burn bones on bonfires, granting you Prayer and Firemaking XP.
Large XP lamps.


Dismiss the dangerous demonic ghosts to earn up to one trophy a day, and spend them on the following rewards:

Ghost Hunter title.
Proto Pack emote.
Large XP lamps.

Finally, you'll unlock a set of proto pack cosmetic overrides for daggers, claws and crossbows, once you've dismissed 50 ghosts.
