During the 2006 Easter event, players needed a spade to dig up special eggs from holes in the ground, which could be found south of Falador and east of Edgeville. By eating one of these eggs while standing on a hole, players could enter a big underground tunnel network, unlocking the Bunny-hop emote in the process. After digging up 10 eggs, a player was rewarded with the Easter ring.
Digging up eggs
There are six types of Easter eggs: caramel, chocolate, nougat, orange, toffee and a very special carrot flavoured one. You can get the eggs by following a rabbit, watching where it buries the egg, then quickly digging the egg out of the mound with a spade.
When you eat the special egg you will transform into a rabbit for a few seconds, unlocking the Bunny-hop emote the first time you undergo this transformation!
Fun as being a rabbit and eating eggs is, the children are still not getting their Easter eggs, so you must get to the bottom of this problem.
When the rabbits are done burying their eggs, you may notice they dig a hole and go down. However, you are too big to dig here. If you eat the special egg while standing on a hole, though, you will transform into a rabbit and fall down into the warren.
Inside the hole
When you are down, try to navigate your way through the maze, towards the main room, where you can find hypnotised bunnies. Here, an Easter egg mysteriously rolls down a chute and a bunny takes it and continues on its hypnotised way.
You will need to climb up this chute and investigate if you are to find out who is responsible for hypnotising these rabbits and making them bury Easter eggs.
At the top of the chute, all is made clear. The source of the eggs can be found (the Easter Bird), as well as the answer to the mystery of who is hypnotising the bunnies. If you offer to help, a reward could be yours!
The Easter Bunny wants you to deliver 10 eggs to the children, then return to him for your reward. There are two ways to do this:
- You can return to the surface and dig up 10 eggs with a spade.
- You can go to the chute in the warren, and take an egg from the pile and return to the surface to give it out.
To return to the surface, find a light beam shining through, and climb out of the hole.
You will be informed in the chat window of how many eggs you have given out. Similar to your transformation, if you give out a magic rabbit egg, the child to whom you give it to will have a few seconds of fun as a rabbit, too!
When you have completed the task of giving out 10 eggs, return to the Easter Bunny for your Easter reward: an Easter ring!
When you wear this ring, you will transform into an Easter egg until you unmorph! In the areas containing the rabbits, you will notice that Easter magic causes you to unmorph after a few seconds. Elsewhere in RuneScape you can transform into an egg, and stay that way unless you are attacked. The colour of Easter egg you become may change each time you use the ring. If you lose the ring, Diango in Draynor Village will replace it. Also through a complicated series of dying you could keep all items involved in the event. It was also possible to receive multiple rings by dropping them and retrieving them from Diango.
After doing this event, you are also able to use the Bunny-hop emote.
