Hunter just got huge - members of all levels can now hunt plutonial chinchompas in an all-new co-operative D&D, with rewards including access to private hunting spots, skilling ingredients and a wieldable cosmetic item.|
Nyriki Tapio is a gnome on a mission to hunt the biggest of game - plutonial chinchompas! These rare beasts exist in isolated habitats, and have just one weakness: food!
Nyriki will show up periodically at hunting spots across Gielinor and ask for your help in capturing one of these ravenous rodents. Once you've met him, he'll take you to the chinchompa's lair. When inside, you'll need to capture soporith moths - the chinchompa's food of choice - and feed them to the chinchompa in its nest. Once its belly's full and its cheeks can hold no more, the beast will fall into a slumber, and victory will be yours!
You'll get XP for feeding moths to the chinchompa - which are found flying around the cave, in shaking branches covered in pupae, and attracted by brandishing one of the protea flowers native to the chinchompa's habitat - as well as an increase in your score. Higher-level moths yield greater rewards, so be sure to grab the best ones that you can.
The game ends after 20 minutes, or when the chinchompa falls asleep. When you leave, you'll be awarded competence points, which can be spent on rewards at Mieliki's store in the Tree Gnome Stronghold. If you leave before the game ends, however, you can still visit Mieliki's store to trade in your current point total.
Best among these rewards are tickets, each granting you a catch at the Tapios' private hunting grounds. Grenwalls, pawyas and polar kebbits (a high-level version, needing box traps) are all yours for the hunting. You can even invite your friends, using a communications device within the hunting grounds. Other rewards include snape grass, flax, swamp toads, and a cosmetic protea flower, wieldable outside the D&D.
Nyriki can't do it without you, so let the fur fly!
How to Start Hunting Big Chinchompas
Find Nyriki at hunting spots around the world, or speak to Mieliki in the Tree Gnome Stronghold.
You must be a member.
No level is required, but capturing better moths requires a range of increasing Hunter levels.
Some private hunting grounds are only available to those who have started Regicide.

Since the mention of Giant Chinchompas I have been waiting eagerly, can't wait to try this out with Cool.
|Yay! Real content!|
Cannot wait to try this myself! |
|good to hear about the runesphere update was no point looking for them before|
|I can tell the names have been modified from old Finnish mythology and naming convention... "Nyyrikki", "Mielikki" and "Tapio" are all old Finnish names and the inclusion of several of such names, albeit in a a modified way, would just be too big of a coincidence|
|I'm happy to see this update. Content = nice.|
Hello Mod Ash! |
Just wanted to take a moment to say that I'm sure this d&d will be amazing! Didn't have the chance to try it yet but I have full confidence in you!
Also a nice note that you knew by advance that the queuing could be a problem and that you were smart enough to change the people limit for the initial rush!
and.. As a last note: I think it's really a shame that it was decided by the other responsible mods to post the "bank booster" together with this amazing 'real' update (as you call it yourself)... A lot of rage will show up on this forum because of that, while in the end, you can't do anything about it and you just want to give us some amazing new update (like the quests you made for us and this nice d&d)..
So in short:
Thanks for all your work! We all should be really happy that there still are people like you working there!
|no trolls in this form =-] have you guys seen the tread about the bank space?? it reached the 7 or 8 pages already.(99.9% trolls)|
