WARNING: Ambushers now live - Watch out!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

 

I was training thieving in the Pyramid Plunder minigame. I've been doing so for months already so I really know what I'm doing. That's why I don't fear taking 60m worth of gear into the minigame. I always have a bunyip, and I tele to castlewars after every game to bank my stones, and then tele back with the sceptre.

 

Like half an hour ago, I had just banked at Castle Wars. I teleported back to the Pyramid Plunder game. I was busy chatting with a friend on Skype so I didn't start the game just yet. I stood there in front of the mummy ready to start the game, after I would be done chatting. I have a dual monitor set up and just as I was reading what my friend says on Skype, I see the right screen (on which RuneScape is opened) go black. I glance at it and I see the 'choose 3 items to keep' interface.

 

I do not know what happened. I didn't see anything happen but then again, I was looking at the left screen reading my Skype conversation. The screen going black is what caught my attention. I'm now standing at the Pyramid Plunder minigame again and I've been waiting here for 15 minutes now to see if this is something that the game does when you're in the Pyramid lobby for too long, but nothing is happening now. I thought the mummy maybe kicked me out after 5 minutes and that I'd later was killed by the tiny ill frogs outside of the Pyramid. (they hit very low but hit a lot and quite fast) But I can say that that was not the case seeing as: you don't get kicked out of the lobby (where you START the game, the game wasn't started yet) AND all of my stuff was IN the lobby, not outside of the pyramid.

 

Then I though that it could've been because of poison. I never use anti-poison. Why? The poison damage is barely noticeable and after it has hit a few times, the effect wears off. Also, the very little damage that was done by the poison is healed shortly afterwards by my bunyip. So the poison can't be what killed me either. There's another strange thing I noticed, look for yourself:

Notice how it says 'You've been prevented from moving.'. So I must have been barraged or something similar. So I can't think of any other possiblity: I have been PK'ed in non-wilderness. So I suggest you all bank your valuables until Jagex fixes the bug that allows players to do this. This happened on the 21th of December 2013 in world 56 at 7:47 AM (GMT).

With phase 3 of World Event you can be ambushed outside of the world event areas by npc of opposite team. It could have been that.

Yeah that seems most likely an ambusher considering even though I was wearing holiday 'hybrid' gear I got knocked down around 1500 hp from one earlier in the span it took me to kill him.

Thanks for the answers! Wow really it was an NPC? That is a real dick move by Jagex! I wonder how many people there'll be who pick up the phone or open the door for someone and come back to find they lost millions if not billions (partyhats etc.) worth of stuff.

They seem to have a higher drop rate for override pieces and fragments than anything else. I got the remaining 3 I needed today just off of them.

I guess if you're worried about dying keep autoretaliate on except when you really need it off...

It might be tied to being an active follower of a god (I.E. overhead marker symbol or title).

I guess it's nice that it's a maximum of 3 times a day, but it's still a very dumb move by Jagex.

Deamonheim is false tho. I got attacked earlier just as I finished my daily dung =/

The ambushers do like 5 dps so you'd have to afk for a full 6-7 minutes to die

Deamonheim is false tho. I got attacked earlier just as I finished my daily dung =/

It means inside the dungeon

Regardless, they shouldn't appear in a place where they can put you in danger. ANY boss area.

 

And if you do die, and they are or have been attacking you, your death should be SAFE.

 

They should also not be able to stun you.

Yeah but if I am attacked if I just exited a dungeon, then I got no weapons and need to run!

So this happened to a friend of mine

Wow, that definitely sucks. All in all I think it's nice to have a bit of danger (imo anything to lessen easyscape is good) but definitely not during ToG.

How long does this event run, again?

 

It doesn't even make the game any harder, unless we're (once again) mistaking inconvenience for difficulty.

I got ambushed immediately after accepting the option to fight vorago.  I didn't like when random events could kill you, I don't like this much either.

OMG I was FURIOUS!  I was chopping yew trees for a challenge and decided to make a cup of coffee.. I wasn't wearing armor, didn't have a weapon on me, and just had a bunch of Signs of the Porter and woodcutting urns.. 

A bandosian NPC attacked and killed me.  Thankfully the gravestone was extended so i was able to get most of my things back - but I had NO IDEA I could be attacked while skilling in non event areas.  I finally looked it up on the RS WIKI - I had thought perhaps I logged into a PVP world or something - totally unexpected and I'm glad I made that coffee fast.

If you have not sided with Bandos or Armodyl I believe you're safe.

Well seeing as I only want to cap renown each day doing the construction it looks like I'll be running away from ambushers until after I've already capped

Or you arm and armour yourself with momentum activated...

 

And auto-retaliate, lets not forget that...

I dunno, I got attacked by one while using the bank (As in, the bank interface was open). That was a surprise.

 

Naturally, stunning him to try to get a weapon out failed almost immediately.
