A player in the pillory event.
The Pillory is a random event during which you are teleported to one of three cages in Yanille, Varrock (located behind the General Store), or Seers' Village. The host, a tramp, throws rotten tomatoes at you while you solve the puzzle to escape.
Traditionally, this random event only appeared while Thieving. However, with the update that made random events optional, the Pillory Guard will now appear at any time and you may choose to be arrested by him and taken to the pillory. The Pillory Guard will even appear on F2P worlds, where players do not have access to the Thieving skill, but players on these worlds can only be teleported to the pillory in Varrock.
A screen will appear with a large lock on the left of the screen, three small locks at the top, and three keys swinging at the bottom. Click on the key that matches the large lock on the left. You must correctly unlock the locks, shown at the top, to escape. If you select the wrong shape, an additional lock will be added (up to a maximum of six) and your progress will be reset. Upon escaping, you will be teleported to where you were when you were arrested and given a reward.
Drop rates estimated based on 2,448 samples from the Drop Rate Project, unless otherwise cited.
The average Pillory event reward is worth 387.83.
