Walkthrough[edit | edit source]
Starting[edit | edit source]
Players started the event by approaching Shanty Claws, a mysterious werewolf, on the dock of Musa Point, they quickly learn of the Gublinches, creatures who lived in the cavern walls of Karamja Volcano that had little regard for anyone other than themselves. Gublinches were affected by the cold, nothing irriated them more than being all so slightly chilly so they had become irritable thanks to the snow around Karamja Volcano. They had taken to 'childernapping', kidnapping the children from nearby Musa Point, forcing them to stoke the fires within the gublinch lair to keep themselves warm.
Pelting the Gublinch[edit | edit source]
The Gublinch lair could be found on the southern slope of Karamja Volcano, next to several piles of snow. Players had to collect around 30 snowballs from the surface before heading down inside the lair.
Next players had to pelt 10 gublinch with the snowballs until they crumbled into piles of Gublinch shards.
Once a player collected 10 shards, they could returned them to Musa Point and place them within the 10 cages along the dock next to Shanty Claws. After doing so, Jack, Jill, and Jeff were able to escape from the gublinch lair and players were able to claim their reward by speaking to Shanty once more.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- After completing the event, the three children Jack, Jill, and Jeff could be seen dancing around the dock near Shanty Claws. Talking to any of them would result in them responding with "Thanks so much for saving us from those stinky gublinch. They were awful! I hope Shanty gave you somefing[sic] cool for your efforts."
- Players were unable to return to the gublinch lair after completing the event; merely receiving the message, "The cavern is empty of gublinch now; there's no need to go down there."
- During the event, Varrock Square was covered in snow and the centerpiece fountain was replaced with a Christmas tree, with the examine text "A troll Trollweiss Spruce. An engraving on the trunk reads 'Ug loves Aga'." Snow around the tree could be gathered from creating Snowballs.
