Groups of up to seven players can take on the challenge of facing Solak, while the Guardian of the Lost Grove comes to life with new AR codes

Cambridge, UK – May 29, 2018 – The tormented ‘Guardian of The Lost Grove’, Solak, has today returned to the RuneScape world of Gielinor after many millennia. The first new group boss to launch in RuneScape since January 2017, Solak is a high-level, end-game character that can be fought against in a couple of ways, allowing either a challenging or accessible experience: a two-player mode and a group mode for between one and seven players.

While no specific level requirements are needed to battle Solak, adventurers looking to take on the Guardian should ensure they gather together a strong team with high-level combat gear. Should Solak be released from the evil elf spirit that controls him, players will be rewarded with new, powerful crossbows and access to new pets – the creatures of the grove.

Solak has also debuted in the real world thanks to a brand-new AR experience, with the release of two Snapcodes that bring the Guardian of the Lost Grove to life!
