Grand Theft Cocoa is the 2020 Easter event. This year, imps have stolen the Easter Bunny's eggs and the player must find and return them to him. The event began on 8 April 2020 and ended on 15 April 2020; eggs cannot be collected, but players can still visit the event area and talk to the Easter Bunny or Caelyn to exchange their eggs for rewards.

Logging in during the event triggered the login message Mischievous Imps have stolen the Easter bunny's eggs! Collect them and hand them in to either Easter bunny or Caelyn near the Clan Camp for special Easter prizes.

During the event, the Event interface could be used to teleport to the event area. The teleport is no longer available; however, players can still visit the event area (south of Falador) to hand in their eggs.

Collecting eggs[edit | edit source]

During the event, egg thieves would appear when skilling with the message An Easter egg thief has appeared!, dropping two small piles and one huge pile (to the activating player only) on the ground. Collecting from a small pile yields 6–19 pilfered easter eggs, and collecting from a huge pile yields 100–149. The huge pile has a chance of yielding a jewelled egg that in turn rewards you up to 200-249 more eggs.

Handing in 10,000 eggs to the Easter Bunny rewards the player with the title hard-boiled, while handing in 10,000 eggs to the thieves gives the title the Poached.

Immediately after logging into a world there is an initial cooldown of 5-10 minutes during which egg thieves will not spawn. After this time has passed, an egg thief will spawn every five minutes when you skill. Gaining experience is not required for this to happen. They cannot spawn in certain areas such as instances, but skilling in these areas will still reset the cool-down timer as if one had spawned.

Update history[edit | edit source]

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 27 April 2020 (Update):
    • Fixed an issue with large and small sacks of loot from the Easter event being bankable.
      • The sacks of loot will be removed from the Bank to the Inventory upon log in. This takes into consideration the amount of inventory space needed to open them, so they may be transferred over multiple log in sessions.
      • Additionally, all sacks of loot will be deleted when logging in on the May 11th, 2020.
  • patch 14 April 2020 (Update):
    • Removed the duplicate messaging seen when collecting eggs during the currently active Easter Event.
    • Reduced the number of small egg spawns from 5 to 2.
    • Increased the currency that players receive during the current Easter event.
    • Decreased the time it takes for the imps and the egg piles to despawn.
    • Made changes to how many imps and egg piles can be in any one area.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • "Grand Theft Cocoa" is a reference to the crime of Grand Theft Auto, and could also be a reference to the video game series Grand Theft Auto.
  • When Caelyn first speaks to the player, she calls the Easter Bunny "Jojo Cottontail." This is a reference to the movie Jojo Rabbit.
  • It is normally impossible to collect eggs more than once from a small pile of eggs; attempting to do this will result in a message saying You have recently collected these eggs. However, exiting and re-entering the world before the pile of eggs de-spawns will reset this, allowing you to collect from it a second time.
