Big Chinchompa Hunting
Introduction ~ What is Big Chinchompa Hunting?
Big Chinchompa Hunting is a Distraction and Diversion for the hunting skill. Playable once every hour, the object of the game is collect moths and feed them to the Plutonial Chinchompa in the centre of the game-play area. There are 8 different kinds of moths to collect, ranging from level 1 to 91 hunter, meaning that any level player can play. It is recommended that you have a higher hunter level when playing this D&D.
One game is available to play on a world every hour, at which time Nyriki Tapio the Gnome will drill to any of the locations listed below. To get to him easily, you may use Nyriki's Portal at the Private Hunter portal area, next to Mieliki Tapio's Rewards Shop. The portal can only be used 3 times a day. The portals are all located south of the Gnome Agility arena. Once you've found him, you can begin the game by climbing down the hole next to him.
The game can be played twice a day at most, after which the area can be still be entered but no moths will spawn.
*Nyriki doesn't spawn at the portal itself, however the portal will take you directly to his spawning area.
How to Play
At the beginning of the game, Nyriki will give you a moth jar, and a timer will start. You run around the nest of a Plutonial Chinchompa, collecting Moths that fly around at random in the area or checking the shaking trees (which can be failed). The jar can hold a total of 15 Moths, and therefore will need to be emptied before you can catch any more moths. At any point in the game, you can deposit your moths by clicking onto the enclosure holding the Chinchompa (and this is when you will gain your hunter XP). The game will end when either when the Chinchompa falls asleep, or the 20 minute timer runs out. There is a cap on how many points you can earn per game (1500), although you can continue to add moths to the chinchompas pen for more hunter experience.
You can also use the protea flower (found in the game or available in the Reward Shop)to attract at random the highest level moth you can catch. See the map below for the locations of the trees, flowers and the Chinchompa.
The table below explains the game interface.
The experience from Big Chinchompa hunting doesn't come from the Plutonial Chinchompas, but from capturing the moths that they eat instead. The following table will show you which Moths you can capture in the Big Chinchompa area, and how much experience each will yield. Note: You can only store 15 moths at a time before depositing them to the Plutonial Chinchompa.
Rewards can be accessed from Mieliki Talio's Rewards Shop in the Private Hunter portal area south of the Gnome Agility arena, or from Nyriki before you enter the game itself. Other than Hunter experience, the game rewards include competence points which can be spent in the shop. A maximum of 1500 can be obtained from any one game.

Tips and Tricks
Your run energy will not deplete during the game play, meaning items such as tireless run scroll or taking a dip in the pool at Oog'log will not be necessary.
You will not need any items to play this D&D, all are provided within the game itself.
Gaining 1,111 points in a single game is a requirement for the completionist cape.
