Complete a category and you'll unlock the Explorer's Aura. Once per day– for 30 days from when you first unlock it – this will grant you access to an instanced area where you can skill or kill to your heart's content, with increased XP and gathering rates. RunescapeGold2007.com offer cheap runescape gold.
Right-click the aura itself to spawn a portal to the area. Whenever you enter, you'll choose whether it contains combat or skilling content. It will contain enemies or skilling spots appropriate to your level, and you can change by leaving and re-entering the area. It'll always contain a bank chest and deposit box.
As you complete more categories, the aura's tier will increase – and so will its activation time:
- Tier 1: 5 minutes
- Tier 2: 10 minutes
- Tier 3: 20 minutes
- Tier 4: 30 minutes
Note that – upon increasing tier – the aura can be activated again the same day.
Each category will also reward you with a compass piece, and when you've got all four of these the completed compass will lead you to the final Road Trip reward: a companion pet and large XP lamp.
You can also get the hiker's outfit from last year by claiming the journal and completing categories, if you don't already have it:
- Hiker's boots and gloves: claim the journal
- Hiker's cap: skilling
- Hiker's jacket: combat
- Hiker's leggings: social/minigames
- Hiker's backpack: miscellaneous
- Finally, you can claim the Partyhat Firemaking animation override by completing all the categories, if you don't have it from last year.
