When you hear the word minigames what is the first thing that comes to mind? In this article, we are going to discuss, What are OSRS Minigames? Why do people play them? What is the benefit of playing OSRS Minigame? We are going to answer all of these questions and much more.
What are OSRS Minigames?
OSRS Minigames are small integrated into OSRS games that you or a team of players are set to complete a certain objective, they are very much like quests but there is a difference.
If you want to play minigame you have to look for a red star Minigame icon.png icon on the map. OSRS minigames are classified as Safe and Dangerous, I’m going to explain in more details what that means.
There are two types of safe minigames: first is safe combat, and the second is no combat. When you play OSRS minigames in safe combat and die from monsters or other players you will respawn in a designated area in the minigame with all your items.
Minigames with no combat have no monsters or PvP areas, so you cannot be killed from them. However, if you are poisoned outside the minigame area, and after that, you do not cure yourselves when entering the area, you will die from the poison.
OSRS Minigames who are classified as Dangerous the regular death mechanics will apply for them. So if you die in a dangerous minigame you will have one hour to get your items back considering you’re in the same world where you died. If you don’t make it in time you will lose everything that you have in your inventory.
Minigame Group Finder
The minigame group finder is a very useful tool, from which you can select a minigame from the drop-down menu and be entered into a chat channel to help you find other players.
You can find the minigame group finder from the Quest List tab, you will recognize it by this Minigame-icon.png icon. The important thing to know is that you cannot be in two chat channels at the same time when joining the minigame the chat channel will automatically remove you from any channel that you were in previously.
Also, the minigame group finder can teleport you to various minigame locations, this teleport has a 20-minute cooldown and cannot be cast from PvP worlds, the wilderness, in a player-owned house, or the Duel Arena.
Know that the teleport cooldown within the minigame group finder does not share cooldowns with the Home Teleport. Selecting the desired OSRS minigame gives you the option to join the official clan chat as well as an option to teleport directly outside of the minigame.
