Slime is of the Essence

Slime is of the Essence

Tossing your food scraps down a well can’t do much harm, right? This is possibly true, providing said scraps aren’t feeding a giant slime, which then emerges from the well and terrorises the local populace.


Slime is of the Essence is a new community event that starts at 00:00 game time on Thursday November 22nd and runs for five days.

Players can start the event by popping down to Rimmington and speaking to Peter for more information.


Over the course of those days, players will need to help defeat King Slime in Rimmington by lending a hand to a host of quirky characters. Reputation will be earned as you participate, and the more communal participation there is, the better the rewards for everyone!

Different skills will need to be employed and 100 basic free tools will be offered to players each day at login to help get the job done. Peter will happily hand out extra tools in exchange for a few loyalty points.

Players will also have the chance to get Golden versions of the tools - which boost the XP and reputation you can earn - from Treasure Hunter for the duration of the event.


What's in it for you? We’re not going to spoil that surprise completely, but there will be some tiered Slime Hunter armour, an animation and a slime pet up for grabs. Rewards that you've qualified for can be claimed the day after the event is finished, and players are able to claim any tools they missed up until the conclusion of the event.

Please note that Ironmen are restricted to cosmetic and selected mystery box rewards.


Don't forget - members get double daily keys every day up until the 2nd December!


We had a great time coming up with a name for this one, although it’s an absolute crime that the team didn't go for 'Goo’d Well Hunting’. Democracy is broken. This truly is the darkest timeline.
