Obtaining a gnome ballEdit

The ball may be transferred from player to player even outside of the minigame by "passing" the ball. This is done by right clicking and using the ball on a specific player. The only other method to obtain them is through smuggling the ball oneself.

There are various methods a player may utilize to smuggle a gnomeball for use outside of the minigame:

Telekinetic grabEdit

The most common method is to drop the ball in front of the gate, walk through said gate, then cast Telekinetic grab to retrieve the ball. This is the expensive way to obtain one, yet fastest. It requires level 33 magic.

TeleportationEdit

The second method is to hold on to a Gnome Ball, then teleport away. Yet another expensive method, and possibly the slowest due to the need of walking back to the minigame. It requires at least level 25 magic. The closest teleport is the Ardougne teleport which requires level 51 magic and completion of the Plague City quest.

PassingEdit

This last method is the cheapest, but unfortunately slow due to only able to smuggle one at a time. It requires players to stand in a very specific spot, click the "shoot" option to pass the ball to a Gnome Baller, and quickly exit the minigame. If done correctly, the ball will be passed back to the player just as they exit through the gate.

TriviaEdit

  • Players who have a full inventory and are thrown a ball will immediately drop it on the ground.
  • Players who are thrown a ball who are in dialogue will have that dialogue interrupted. [Not confirmed]
  • Players who throw the ball in the wilderness will not become skulled.
