Gnomeball detail.png

Gnomeballs are received by winning 5 points in a game of Gnome Ball or from the gnome restaurant minigame. With the item in your inventory, you can click "Use" with it, and click another player. If that player has both hands empty, they will catch the ball, and it will end up in their weapon slot. It is not advised that you throw it to a player you do not know, as they can very easily walk away with it.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Attempting to bank a gnomeball with an Imp-in-a-box will result in a message box appearing with the imp in the box saying: "I'm not touching a gnomeball; that's a vicious game! I might die!"
  • The gnomeball has been used by many players to determine whether or not an account is Botting, as the sudden appearance of a foreign object in their inventory may halt their programming.
  • If a gnomeball is dropped in the Gnome Ball minigame, the gnomeball will not appear on the ground and instead results in the message The ball magically returns to the ref as you put it down..
