Going Like Clockwork was a time-limited event which was active from 13 to 26 November 2017. Santa had gone on annual leave to prepare himself for the festive season, and players were tasked with helping Eira, found in Burthorpe, recover pieces of his clockwork toy which were stolen by snow implings.
Similarly to other time-limited events, players could gather the clockwork pieces by training most skills conventionally, with an extra 20% from training Invention, Crafting and Hunter, or by completing daily challenges. The clockwork pieces could also be collected by fighting most monsters and by capturing snow implings, which gave 20 pieces per catch.
Each time the player logged in during the event, they were greeted with one of the following announcements:
- Help Eira save Christmas by collecting clockwork pieces and returning them to her in Burthorpe!
- Santa's head elf, Eira, needs your help to collect clockwork pieces stolen by the naughty snow imps!
Event noticeboards and the Event interface could be used to teleport to Eira for the duration of the event.
Players could recover 10,000 clockwork pieces and return them to Eira to receive rewards.
|Amount of clockwork handed in||Reward|
|4,000||Event mystery box|
|5,000||A clockwork lemon|
|8,500||Big event mystery box|
Spare pieces could be provided to Eira to receive an event mystery box or big event mystery box, both of which contained some previous Christmas event rewards and other miscellaneous items. The previous event rewards that could be received from them were:
|Snowverload plush token||Snowverload plushie||7,656|
|Mammoth plush token||Mammoth plushie||13,580|
|Penguin plush token||Penguin plushie||39,602|
|Buddy pet token||Buddy||435,773|
|Christmas lootbeam token||Christmas loot beam||305,677|
|Off-hand rubber turkey||783,282|
- Snow implings originally gave 200 clockwork pieces per catch during the event upon release. This was hotfixed at 02:22 UTC on 13 November 2017 to give 20 instead due to players completing the event too quickly and gaining mystery boxes at a fast rate.
- The re-release of the previously limited-quantity discontinued rares, the rubber turkey and off-hand rubber turkey caused both items to plummet precipitously in price from nearly 45m each to around 2.5m each, destabilizing the discontinued items market due to mass panic about the probable re-release of other previously-highly-valuable discontinued rares.
