Start locations

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's Portal* South of Ourania Altar South of Piscatoris Snowy hunter 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.

Game Interface
Pic Info Pic Info
Chinchompa Sleepmeter This meter shows roughly how sleepy the Plutonial Chinchompa is. The game is complete either when this meter is full, or when the 20 minute timer has run out. Chinchompa Pointcount This shows how many points you have earnt in the game so far. It does not, however, show how many points you have total.
Chinchompa Mothcount This shows how many moths are inside your moth jar. Once it gets to 15, you need to empty the jar into the Chinchompa's nest.
Big Chinchompa Timer This is the timer for the game. It appears in the opposite side to the game interface, and shows how much time remains in the game. If this runs to 0, or the sleep meter fills up totally, the game ends.
Chinchompa Mothtypecount This shows how many of each kind of moth you have currently in your jar. To see this screen, hover over the moth jar counter.

Soporith Moths

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.

Redchins 63 Hunter, box trap Carnivorous Chinchompa area

Here you can hunt for red chinchompas using the box trap method. If you forget your box traps, Nyriki's chest outside of the portal will provide 5 for you. They each require 1 Carnivorous chinchompa quota ticket to catch them successfully.
Pawya Spot 66 Hunter, box trap, some completion of Regicide Pawya area

Polarkebbits 70 Hunter, box trap Polar kebbit area

Contrary to traditional tracking methods, Polar Kebbits in this spot are box trapped for convenience, however they still drop the same items as a normal Polar kebbit.

Grenwalls 77 Hunter, box trap, some completion of Regicide Grenwall area

The highest levelled hunting ground, Grenwalls can be box trapped with Raw pawya meat as bait in a much smaller, more convenient area than Isafdar; however still requires enough completion of Regicide to access.

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.
