The 2021 Easter event, also called the Spring Festival, was an Easter event hosted by Thaerisk Cemphier and his druid organisation of Crux Eqal. It added a new festival area west of the Exam Centre, which will be updated over the coming years. It featured XP buffs between 2% and 20% (depending on community progress) in the area, as well as several community benefits and improved benefits of catching green, white, and yellow Guthixian butterflies. Green and white butterflies gave direct experience while yellow butterflies give bonus experience to one of the player's lower skills, which was determined similarly as in Tears of Guthix.

It was possible to teleport to the event area through the Event interface.

There were three activities in the area, all of which granted Spring Tokens. The first 5,000 tokens per day were earned at a doubled rate. It was also possible to get drops of 10 oddments while participating in the activities. A temporary bank chest could also be found in the area.

Ironmen could take part and gain experience during the event, however would not benefit from the experience boosts rewards from the community engagement.

Activities[edit | edit source]

Stone celebration[edit | edit source]

Spring Festival Druidic Stone celebrating.png

This activity was run by Athletix. Players could celebrate at the central Druidic Stone which caused them to walk around it for Agility or Prayer experience in either clockwise or anti-clockwise direction. The player would use either the Conga Walk (Agility) or the Loved Up Walk (Prayer) animation depending on which kind of XP they were receiving.

The correct direction to walk alternated every minute, and Athletix would say I have re-calculated! We must go clockwise/anti-clockwise! Walking in the wrong direction would award significantly less experience.

Welcome To The Easter Fete would play while participating in this activity.

Potion brewing[edit | edit source]

Spring Festival Cauldron brewing no glow.png

This activity was run by Kaqemeex. Players brewed at one of three cauldrons for either Herblore or Cooking experience.

One of the cauldrons would always be glowing, and every minute the glow would move to another cauldron. When this happened, Kaqemeex would say The northern/eastern/southern cauldron is glowing. We should surely brew it! The glow always moved from the northern cauldron to the eastern, from the eastern cauldron to the southern, and again from the southern cauldron to the northern. Brewing at the glowing cauldron awarded around triple the experience of a non-glowing one.

Icon carving[edit | edit source]

Spring Festival Icon Carving.png

This activity was run by Wittelstix. Players carved one of three wooden icons, automaton icon, Guthix icon, or Guthixian butterfly icon representing an automaton, Guthix, or Guthixian butterfly, for either Fletching or Crafting experience.

Like with the potion brewing, one of the icons would always be glowing, and every minute the glow would move to another icon. When this happened, Wittelstix would say The northern/western/southern icon is glowing. Carve it to show thanks! The glow always moved from the northern icon to the western, from the western icon to the southern, and again from the southern icon to the northern. Carving the glowing icon awarded around triple the experience of a non-glowing one.

Each icon would visually start off as a simple log, but after enough carving they would begin to take shape. Icons went from unstarted, to started, and finally complete. After this they would reset back to unstarted. Each icon took 250 skilling actions to advance a full visual stage, taking 12.5 minutes of continuous carving from a single player.

Base experience values[edit | edit source]

The experience gained per action depended on the player's level in the selected skill and whether or not the player performed the correct action. All three activities provided experience of the selected type continuously in three-second intervals until interrupted. For correct actions, the same base experience values were gained regardless of the selected activity and experience type. For incorrect actions potion brewing and icon carving shared the experience values, but stone celebrating had significantly lower values. The following tables list base experience for a single action at each skill level.

Rewards[edit | edit source]

Community milestones[edit | edit source]

Spring Festival community event interface.png

During the event, catching the Guthixian butterflies would change the look of the Tree of Balance, and added to a global counter. The tree will also change with the northern hemisphere seasons. The current number of butterflies caught could be checked from either the Community Event interface or by speaking with the Tree of Balance (who would also tell the player their personal butterfly count).

For each million Guthixian butterflies caught up to ten million, a new reward was unlocked.

Surplus Spring Supplies[edit | edit source]

Spring Tokens were received when participating in any of the event activities. Each activity granted 2 tokens every 3 seconds if following the spotlight, or 1 token every 3 seconds if not. These rates were doubled for the first 5,000 tokens each day. If following the spotlights, it required a little over one hour to receive the first 5,000 tokens each day.

Spring tokens were used to buy rewards from Thaerisk Cemphier.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • It was confirmed by Mod Camel on Reddit that the Crux Eqal knight override will be available in a future update.[1]
  • To make space for the event, some trees around the area were moved slightly, and one regular tree ended up on the same game square as an oak west of Seren's garden. As the oak requires more space, this rendered the regular tree unusable.
