Update:Treasure Hunter – Dragon Trinkets

Dragon Trinkets update post header.jpg

Dragon trinkets are this weekend's new arrival on Treasure Hunter. Bear these magical artefacts and become a fire-breather's bane!

From 00:00 UTC (game time) on 15th May until 23:59 UTC on 18th May, log on and you'll receive 75 free dragon trinkets*. Give them a go, and pick up more on Treasure Hunter.

These stackable items sit in your necklace slot or inventory and have a range of functions, which are useful while fighting chromatic dragons**. They can:

  • Pick up and note dragon bones and hides.
  • Give Slayer XP on kills – no Slayer assignment necessary, but stacks with any assignment you do have.
  • Draconic deathblows - 5% chance per hit to instantly kill dragons above 80% life points, with an awesome new animation. This works on any chromatic dragon, except the KBD and QBD.
  • Teleport to dragon locations.

The first three of the above activate automatically, whenever applicable. The teleports are activated by right-clicking your trinkets.

All of the above functions consume trinkets:

  • Each item type (bones or hides) picked up and noted per kill consumes 1 trinket. So 1 for each baby dragon, and 2 for each adult – including brutal green dragons and the KBD. This does not apply for the QBD.
  • Each baby dragon killed with a deathblow consumes 1, and each adult 2. The KBD and QBD cannot be instantly killed with trinkets.
  • The additional Slayer XP consumes 1 per dragon, with the exception of brutal greens (3), the KBD (10) and the QBD (15). Slayer XP given is relative to the power of the dragon killed.
  • All teleports consume 5 trinkets.

This weekend's your best chance to load up on dragon trinkets – open those chests, and tool up for your next dragon slaying adventure!
