Skilling pets[edit source]

Does anyone know if skilling pets can be gotten at the event? Chiyachan (talk) 14:45, 29 March 2021 (UTC) says no. Chiyachan (talk) 16:05, 29 March 2021 (UTC)

Easter?[edit source]

Is this actually an Easter event? I can't find any references to Easter, and it seems to be consistently called Spring Festival both in game and on the official news. Thingummywut (talk) 14:47, 29 March 2021 (UTC)

Furthermore, similar events that happened in 2013, 2014, and 2018 were not treated as Easter event in the wiki either, so I really feel like this one should get similar treatment. Thingummywut (talk) 15:20, 29 March 2021 (UTC)
I've been calling it an Easter event because of this tweet where they call it the "Spring Festival (Easter event)". Though I have not been part of the wiki long enough to know how this has been handled in the past. Larriar chathead.png Gaalactus (Talk) Runecrafting.png 15:24, 29 March 2021 (UTC)
Right, I rewatched the stream where they introduced this and even they seem on the edge about it. Yes, it's an event happening around Easter time, but thematically there is nothing Easter-related. Easter event article is pretty clear in its definitions about what an Easter event is supposed to be, and this one doesn't fall under that definition. Either we need to revise what we mean by Easter event, or rename the Spring Festival article. Thingummywut (talk) 15:36, 29 March 2021 (UTC)
I would also like to add that on the news post Account Returning Begins & Making Things Right at the bottom of the post, under "Awesome April" Events, It list this as a Easter Event Shuttleu (talk) 20:53, 29 March 2021 (UTC) Shuttleu
Fair enough. I have edited Easter event to allow this event to be treated as one. Now we should probably also treat 2013, 2014, and 2018 events as Easter events too for consistency. Thingummywut (talk) 22:57, 29 March 2021 (UTC)

Experience[edit source]

After having gathered 5500+ coins in one day, so I understand that means the bonus has expired:

Fletching at levels 26 through 28 - carving the "correct" glowing icon provides 7xp almost always, periodically 6.

Carving the "incorrect" icon provides 2 or 3xp, more frequently 2.

Prayer at level 45 - "correct" direction yields 4 or 5xp, split basically evenly so 4.5xp/3 seconds.

Walking the "incorrect" direction yields 1xp.

Cooking at level 71 - "correct" pot yields 16 or 17xp, split basically evenly so 16.5xp/3 seconds.

Stirring the incorrect cauldron yields 5 or 6xp, split basically evenly so 5.5xp/3 seconds.
