Ents are one of RuneScape's discontinued random events. When a player tried to chop a tree, the tree had a chance of becoming an ent, also known as "dancing tree" to some players. Like most random events, its purpose was to stop macro users. Since the Ent could appear for each player choppping the tree, the odds of it showing up increased when woodcutting with more players. However, once it had appeared, it would influence all players chopping that tree.

The player had to stop chopping wood, or the player would carry on cutting, attempting to chop the ent down. This would break the player's axe and render it useless. Once broken, a player could go to Bob's Brilliant Axes in Lumbridge to get the broken axe fixed. Bob would fix bronze, iron, and steel axes free of charge, and other axe types for a small fee. The stronger the axe, the higher the repair cost. Alternately, the axe could be repaired in a player-owned house, reducing the cost.

Players would often yell "Ent!" to help keep other players from breaking their axes.

To warn players that that tree was an Ent, in the "Choose option" box for that tree, the "chop down - " would be in yellow instead of light blue which is the normal colour.

Another warning was that ents would appear as a yellow dot on the mini-map.

A Giant ent is a level 78 Summoning familiar.

Trivia

  • When a player attempted to cut an Ent whilst using a hatchet obtained from stealing creation or the Inferno Adze, a message appears telling the player they are not wielding an axe they can use and prevents them from chopping the Ent.
  • While extremely rare, a tree could sometimes turn into an Ent more than once since the odds of one appearing is determined by individual players, which means the Ent random could be triggered several times if a lot of players were chopping down the same tree.
