Yesterday's Theatre of Blood announcement saw a number of rewards proposed. Today's game update offers you the opportunity to get to grips with them, albeit in pink placeholder form. The Deadman Spring Finals kick off tomorrow. Plus more offerings from QoL Month!
Theatre of Blood Rewards Testing: Tournament Worlds
Theare of Blood
In yesterday's Theatre of Blood Dev Blog, we proposed a number of rewards to come from the Theatre of Blood raid encounter. The raid itself, along with the rewards, are naturally subject to polling. To aid your decision making we're launching some Tournament worlds which will allow you access to the weapons and armours. You'll find that you're able to try the rewards anywhere you'd like, rather than with recent Tournament world offerings which were limited to PvP. Please note that you can only access the proposed weapons and armours. The proposed prayer and potions do not yet exist and cannot be accessed.
Proposed raids rewards have been added to the Tournament Supplies chests on Tournament worlds. Currently they utilise placeholder models in a fetching bubblegum pink. Should the rewards pass the poll then unique assets will be created. The equipment in the chests have the stats and effects pitched in the above dev blog.

Other Tournament World Information
