Thaler is a global currency for minigames that was released with the Minigame Spotlight system. It can be earned by playing any of the selected 13 minigames and is rewarded at a rate of 1 thaler every 5 minutes spent in a minigame. In addition, a different minigame is spotlighted every three days to reward 1 thaler every minute.

The time for which thaler are awarded is rounded down at the end of a game. Any remainder is saved and added after a next game.

Players can spend thaler on a wide array of existing minigame rewards in Stanley Limelight's store. It is also possible to use thaler to buy certain promotional items previously only available from Treasure Hunter, as well as a unique reward, the spirit gem bag.

While untradeable, the value of thaler can be approximated using Silverhawk feathers (the tradeable equivalent of silverhawk down), a granite body, or magic notepaper, all three of which are rewards purchasable with thaler.

Certain Castle Wars rewards like halos and the faithful shield can be obtained with the use of thaler by purchasing the detailed decorative armour set for 3355 thaler and reselling it to Lanthus for 290 gold castle wars tickets.

Minigames list[edit | edit source]

The minigames list, available from the adventures interface, allows players to quickly see what minigames are current spotlighted, as well as the three upcoming spotlighted minigames. Players can also set favorites to see at a glance if the minigames they wish to play are or will be spotlighted soon. The currently spotlighted minigame will have a green background, while the upcoming three will have blue backgrounds, opposed to the regular brown one. Hovering the icons on the left of these entries will show you the time until they are spotlighted. Note that the day is rounded up, meaning "in 1 day" occurs at 00:00 game time.

Rewards[edit | edit source]

Stanley Limelight Traders[edit | edit source]

Players may exchange thaler for rewards at Stanley Limelight Traders. Ran by Stanley Limelight, the store is located near various minigames and offers rewards such as experience-boosting sets, elite skilling outfits, and various minigame reward items.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Thaler is an old European coin that was widely used across the continent.
  • If the spotlight changes while a game is ongoing, all the points from the existing game would be treated as 1 per 5 minutes if the player does not log out, lobby or leave before the changeover.
