Old School RuneScape Deadman Reborn mode returns

Dead man mode reverts to Old School RuneScape for his third season. Now titled Deadman Reborn, the latest iteration of the popular Old School RuneScape The PvP game mode reworks several aspects. This overhaul was done in an effort to address the main issues raised by the community during Season 2.

For those who aren’t in the know, Deadman Mode is a three-week PvP tournament. Throughout the event, players benefit from a greatly improved experience and rare drop rates from bosses. This allows you to ramp up, and properly equip an account in a short time. Those who advance to the final by placing in the top 2,048 players will have a chance to win it all by overcoming a series of one-on-one duels.

What’s new?

Three-life system

The third season of Deadman mode sees substantial changes implemented to improve the player experience. On the one hand, a three-life system is now active. Each player starts with three lives which are lost when you are killed by another player in PvP combat.

If all three lives are lost, a series of penalties are imposed. Most notably, all combat experience is immediately reset and your bank is cleared. The safe protects ten items in the event of death. However, if all three lives are lost, even that last line of defense is emptied. Deceased players retain at least 90% of their skill experience, along with any completed quest progress.

Combat Level Worlds

Unlike the last Deadman mode, Reborn introduces combat-level worlds to OSRS. Worlds are divided into four combat level slices: 3-35, 36-70, 71-100, and 101-126. These different worlds can only be entered if your combat level matches the requirements.

Osrs Deadman Reborn Safe Zones

The complete list of safe zones where players cannot be attacked. These are universal in all worlds, regardless of the medium.

When unlocking and switching to a new medium, 60 minutes of protection is granted. This should help new players avoid being picked by those at the top of each bracket. The Grand Exchange will be shared between all Slices, but personal exchanges can only take place between two players in the same Slice.

XP multiplier increased

Experience rates have always been higher in Deadman mode, but Reborn increases them even more than usual. XP gained in all non-combat skills is multiplied by 10, including any XP rewards earned from quests or XP lamps.


Your ranking is based on your total XP. Make the most of these increased experience rates for a chance to win a share of the Deadman Reborn prize pool.

As for Combat XP, it also starts at 10 times but gets faster depending on which combat level slice you are in. At 36-70, this increases to 15 times, then 20 times to 71-100, and finally 25 times to 101-126. No experience is gained in PvP encounters.


Based on Relics from the Leagues, Seals are passive perks that offer a variety of powerful abilities. There are 54 in total spread over nine levels. These can be traded freely, but only three can be active at a time.

Interestingly, Deadman Reborn allows these Seals to be traded on the Grand Exchange or in Personal Exchanges for OSRS gold. They can be earned as drops from NPCs, although specific drop rates are still being determined.

Revamped quest requirements

In the last Deadman mode, many quests were automatically unlocked to help speed up player progress. However, in Deadman Reborn, Old School RuneScape players will instead have to progress through the combat level bands. Each mount has specific quest requirements attached to it that are unlocked once you advance.

Quest Unlock

These quests are unlocked immediately. More can be unlocked by progressing through each combat level world

Naturally, those who aim to stay in a lower bracket can still complete quests the traditional way. Additionally, some key quests like Recipe for Disaster will always have the majority of their requirements locked down, regardless of which combat level world you find yourself in.
