More Distractions and Diversions
« on: April 14, 2020, 08:37:40 pm »
Hello wanderers!

After playing for awhile now I have noticed there is room for more Distractions and Diversions! For you that doesn't know what that means. They are events that occur every 2 hours or so in-game. Presently, I think there are 2 diversions. One is the shooting star diversion and the other being the kolodion spider diversion.

My suggestion is to add a few ones and I have a couple in mind:
  • Evil Tree
  • Fish Flingers

Evil Tree
This diversion will be announced in the official clan chat just like how shooting star works whenever an evil tree has spawned around the world. Giving a hint in the chat towards the location of the evil tree. Players that gets closer to the tree location may see roots attack at them and their character will say "What was that?"; giving a sign that an evil tree is nearby.

The purpose of the event is to kill the tree, you can kill it together with other players which makes it really fun to do, making it a fun-social event. Farming experience is granted each time the sapling advances to another stage of development while nurturing. Woodcutting experience is granted every few seconds during chopping. Firemaking experience is granted each time a new section of the Tree is lit on fire.

There are seven types of evil trees and 25 possible locations. More details about this diversion can be found here https://runescape.wiki/w/Evil_Tree

Fish Flinger
This diversion is all about fishing. Can be accessed by talking to Fishermen that are located at many major fishing spots around the world. They are able to transport the player to the competition's waiting room right before the diverison is about to start, located on Isla Anglerine. To participate in a match on the island requires a ticket, and it is possible to play at least two times a day.

During each 10 minute competition of Fish Flingers, players encounter 6 varieties of fish. To catch them they must select the right combination from different baits, tackles and weights. Occasionally, big fish will appear and players can help each other to catch them. Completing all six tackle combinations and helping with big fishes leads to the higher scores.

The player's fishing level has no impact on the competition itself. All players, regardless of fishing ability compete equally during the game. Only after the competition ends and the scores are revealed, does the experience reward earned vary according to your fishing level. Players are awarded fishing experience based on their score, as well as tokens to buy a variety of rewards from a fisherman.

The rewards are fishing experience as well as fishing tokens that can be exchanged by talking to fisherman for the fisherman outfit that consists of a hat, jacket, waders and boots that grants 1% fishing experience per part worn.

I'm glad you get the main purpose of the idea! This also gives opportunities to meet new people and possibly make friends :)
