When is the Next RuneScape Double XP LIVE – Answered

Double up on your XP gains!

RuneScape has a reputation for being rather grindy. This reputation is deserved, as maxing your account will take thousands of hours. There are many opportunities to make this goal easier. One of the most well-known opportunities is RuneScape’s Double XP events, and the next one goes live soon.

RuneScape Double XP LIVE Event Dates

It is important to know when the next RuneScape Double XP LIVE event will be. The earlier you stock up on buyable items that you need to train skills, the cheaper it will be. Prices rise dramatically the closer that you get to the start of the event. You could easily save yourself millions of GP by being proactive.

So, when is the next event? Jagex has announced that the next RuneScape Double XP LIVE event will occur from Friday, February 16, 2024 (12:00 in-game time), to Monday February 26, 2024 (12:00 in-game time).

Members will receive a +100% XP bonus while free-to-play players will receive a +20% XP bonus during the event.
