Old School RuneScape Adds "Below Ice Mountain," A New Free-To-Play Quest

Below Ice Mountain is a new quest in Old School RuneScape, available to both members and the free-to-play community. The quest follows Willow – an archaeologist on the lookout for her next discovery – and will unlock access to a dungeon below Ice Mountain.

There’s good reason to tackle the new quest, as the Ice Mountain Dungeon is home to a variety of useful resources and activities. Specifically, you’ll have access to a “great forge powered using Barronite, a unique material that can only be found there.” Barronite can be gathered throughout the dungeon while skilling, giving you a chance to earn XP as you unlock the secrets of the icy new location. Jagex said the activities inside Ice Mountain Dungeon are aimed at lower-level free-to-play characters and should fill the “notable gaps” in free-to-play skilling.

From mining and smithing to fishing and fighting, there’s a lot of new content to unravel in the latest free-to-play region. Beyond the Barronite forge, you’ll also have access to the Vault – a maze-like room that houses numerous chests. Find a way to enter the Vault and you’ll have one minute to loot as many chests as possible before reaching the exit. If you don’t manage to reach the exit in time, all your loot will be lost – which should make for some fun “risk-vs-reward” run-throughs.
