A swarm.

Swarm

The swarm is a discontinued RuneScape random event. It used to randomly attack a player, and the player could not attack it back. It hit for either one or two points of damage, however its attack level was very low, so it rarely hit even the weakest of players. Thus, the swarm was mostly just a nuisance for most players.

All a player needed to do to escape it was to do is walk or run away for a short distance, and then the swarm would stop attacking. Make a note that even in a single combat zone, the swarm will attack the player, and make the monster that the player was fighting oblivious to the player.

The swarms still exist and follow players around, but they will not attack the players. These are found in Karamja Jungle.

History

This random event was in fact attackable with its release, the only problem was that it had an incredibly high Defence and only a few 1's and 2's were able to pierce through. It also had an amazing amount of Hitpoints and healed faster than normal. Ring of Recoil used to be able to work against it, but this no longer happens. If the player had a familiar out in a multi combat area, it would attack the swarm, although it would only rarely be able to deal any damage. As of the 25/02/09 Random event update the swarm has been moved to Musa Point, east of the banana trees on Karamja. Although it is no longer aggressive, it will follow any player who walks past.

Trivia

  • The item 'Insect repellent', located in a house at Catherby, will not work on the Swarm.
  • If a swarm occurred underwater, the examine text would be "A swarm of vicious plankton!" instead of the usual "A swarm of vicious insects!"
  • The swarm was very hard to see with low detail. In 2007, barely anybody noticed it attacking a player.
  • Swarms used to be attackable, which before it retired, it was not.
  • The new examine text for a swarm when examined on Musa Point is "Insects buzzing around", while when it popped up as a random event the text was "A swarm of vicious insects!". This may be due to the fact it no longer attacks players.
