RuneScape developer Jagex has this week announced the opening of the game’s very first Elite Dungeon that’ll offer the ultimate challenge for veteran (and new) players.
The Temple of Aminishi is now available for all players of RuneScape and will see them going alone, or with a friend, to take on mobs, mini-bosses, and a trio of antagonists including Seiryu the Azure Serpent, the spirit of water.
Interestingly, players of all levels can dive in too as lower-level players will be able to grab a boat from Port Sarim that’ll take them directly to the island, provided they’ve completed the “Impressing the Locals” novice quest.
This, and future Elite Dungeons, according to Jagex, offer “a greater level of accessibility than traditional in-game dungeons, including access for solo players for a greater challenge, and a story mode option that reduces enemy damage but decreases the chance of unlocking rewards.”
“Elite Dungeons are a great way of delivering raid-like experiences without having to gather together a large group of friends and clanmates,” said RuneScape Lead Designer Dave Osborne. “The launch of the Temple of Aminishi offers a brilliant way to experience the continuation of The Arc storyline we began in RuneScape a couple of years ago, with a compelling tale and challenging bosses to overcome. We’re really excited to see what players think as they battle their way to Seiryu’s chamber and learn the secrets of the azure water serpent.”
The Temple of Aminishi isn’t the only Elite Dungeon to be announced for RuneScape, as Jagex have also announced that second dungeon is scheduled for the living game later this summer.
