The finale of the Dimension of the Damned event took place over the weekend, as 1000 of the highest scoring players are vied to be the last RuneScape avatar standing against the zombie horde.

A competitive mode for RuneScape, competitors start inside the city of Falador, which provides safe haven for them to purchase supplies. In the finale, each player starts with mithril tools, 5000 bottle corks, and stell armour, and are sent out to hold against the horde.

While the mode is PvM, or Player vs. Monster, players are still competing for a high score and for one of the pieces of equipment that drop from supply crates.

The winner, Lexa, earned themselves 200 million gold, a lifetime RuneScape membership, a unique title and a real-life zombie award.

The competition is over, but you can watch it from the beginning through the RuneScape channel’s Twitch archives.

Jagex has acknowledged there were some issues with the game mode that players brought up on social media. All 1000 players will be receiving the special pet for the event, regardless of their finish. The pet was originally to be awarded only to the top 50.
