Farquie the Cleaner is a gnome that was busy removing the landing pads in the former Gnomecopter Tours area to the north-west of Lumbridge. According to Farquie, the Gnomecopter Tours closed down because his boss, Hieronymus Avlafrim and one of the gnomecopter pilots, Sasquine Huburns, decided to retire and get married. If pressed, he refused to take any bribes for a ride on a gnomecopter and reiterated that the gnomecopters were no longer there.
The Gnomecopter Tours were removed on 25 March 2009 and were replaced by Beefy Bill and Farquie the Cleaner as Jagex no longer wished to advertise members content on free play worlds.
Farquie featured in the 2016 Easter event as part of a group taking a tour of Sliske's chocolate factory. During the event, he briefly became one of Sliske's wights.
With the update on 16 May 2016, he finished his clean up work and moved on.
The update history project is a work-in-progress – not all updates to this topic may be covered below. See here for how to help out!
- ninja 16 May 2016 (Update):
- Farquie the cleaner has finally got round to tidying up the remnants of Gnomecopter tours. Local farmers have taken advantage of this by moving in more of their cows.
- During the 2016 Easter event, he told players he is afraid of heights, which is why he never tried the gnomecopters when they were active.
