Wednesday 17th August 2022, Cambridge, UK – Old School RuneScape is set to launch its brand-new raid, Tombs of Amascut on Saturday, 24th August. This exciting new dungeon run is the living game’s most challenging and customisable raid to date. Rewards for this raid include best in-slot weapons and armour.
Tombs of Amascut introduces the new invocation system that makes each raid run unique. Before entering the raid, players can choose from multiple modifiers that buff and debuff elements of the raid. Stacking invocations and their effects will increase the challenge for players but offer up rarer and more powerful loot as a reward.

The raid continues directly from the quest Beneath Cursed Sands and tasks players to stop Amascut’s ascension to godhood. There are four main areas which can be tackled in any order, each offering a specialised challenge in the form of combat and puzzles. No matter how players want to tackle the Tombs of Amascut, they can do it their own way.

The best-in-slot rewards for this raid include the Shadow of Tumeken, a powerful two-handed staff, Masori armour, a three-piece set of ranging gear, Elidinis’ Ward, a shield with magic strength, Lightbearer, a special attack regenerating ring, and Osmumten’s Fang, a deadly one-handed weapon.
