Distractions and Diversions/Locations
Distractions and Diversions locations (D&D) is a guide for the mobile events in the Distractions and Diversions game feature. Locations for Balthazar Beauregard's Big Top Bonanza and Penguin Hide and Seek change every week on Wednesdays (see time).
If you find that this page loads too slowly for you, you may use a lighter version of this page in order to individually load the sections you want.
Balthazar Beauregard's Big Top Bonanza[edit | edit source]
|Varrock - north of Gertrude's house|
|Days until next: 2 (wrong?)|
All locations[edit | edit source]
- Tree Gnome Stronghold - south of the entrance; near the gate
- Seers' Village
- Draynor Village
- Al Kharid
- Varrock - south-east of Lumber Yard
- Varrock - north of Gertrude's house
Note: From Week 13 onwards, the locations repeat the location of Week 1-12. For example, Week 17's location would be Week 5's location (Falador), and for Week 20, the location would be in Al Kharid (Week 8).
Penguin Hide and Seek[edit | edit source]
Penguin roaming areas[edit | edit source]
By comparing the clues given by Larry or Chuck and the actual penguin sightings, the roaming area of each of the clues can be determined. At different times, different clues may be activated by the same penguin. Sometimes multiple penguins may be activating the same clue.
The information regarding area should not be used as a basis for your search due to the penguins' large roaming areas and that they are in different places in each world. However, penguins cannot change costume during the week. The only exceptions to this rule are during the Hallowe'en events, when some penguins change to Pumpguins (Pumpkin penguins), or during the Christmas Events, when some penguins change to Snowguins (Snowman penguins).

Locations[edit | edit source]
General clue areas are given by Larry, located in the Ardougne Zoo near the penguin exhibit, or Chuck the polar bear after Hunt for the Red Raktuber. However, the penguins' wander area is often extremely large and only limited by obstacles such as water, fences with no openings, and impassible terrain. The invisible penguin respawns every few minutes in any of the 1-point spawn locations. Its movement is not limited by some obstacles, such as water and rough terrain, but is limited by other obstacles, such as trees and walls (similar to Implings). The penguins reset weekly on Wednesdays shortly after 00:00 UTC.

Shooting Star[edit | edit source]
Shooting stars fall from the sky in RuneScape approximately every 2 hours in one location on each world. The location may be different in other worlds. When players mine through all layers of the star, they will find a Star sprite. The location of the crash sites are random, although the stars always crash near a mine or bank.
