Minigames are small games in which a player (or players) set out to complete a certain objective. These games sometimes allow players to gain experience and items. They are identified with a red star Minigame icon.png icon on the map. Minigames can be repeated, unlike quests or miniquests which can only be completed once. In the Mage Arena minigame, Kolodion cannot be refought after defeating his fourth form, but the arena itself can still be used afterwards.

The Minigame Group Finder

The Minigame Group Finder interface.

can be found under the Quest interface. Select the desired minigame from the drop down menu and players will be entered into a chat channel to help you find other players. Players cannot be in two chat channels at the same time, so joining the minigame chat channel will automatically remove you from any channel you were previously in.

The Group Finder can also teleport you to the minigames location (provided you meet the requirements to access it). This teleport does not use the same cooldown timer as the home teleport spell and cannot be cast from PVP worlds, the Wilderness, or the Duel Arena.


Minigames are classified as either Safe or Dangerous depending on whether items are or are not kept on death.


There are two types of safe minigame: safe combat, and no combat. Minigames with safe combat will see players fight monsters or other players, and if/when they die they will respawn in a designated area in the minigame with all their items. Minigames with no combat have no monsters or player-versus-player areas, so players cannot be killed - however, if players are poisoned outside the minigame area, and then do not cure themselves when entering the area, they can still die from the poison. Some minigames can also be dangerous while travelling to it, while safe inside.


Items will be lost upon death. Regular death mechanics will apply. Minigames aren't instanced so you will have one hour to get your items back considering you're in the same world where you died.
