Gnome Ball Map

To start, talk to the Gnome ball referee and he will ask if you want to play. Say yes! He will throw a ball up into the air, which you will automatically catch.

Referee

Strategy:

There are 2 ways to play the game: Hogging or Passing

Hogging:

When you get the ball, take a route down the field that is least crowded with gnome ball players. If you get tackled, make sure that you see which gnome says "Hehe", or something like that. Right click on that same gnome and hit "tackle". Once you have the ball, figure out a way to get down the course, closer to the net. Run to the net. Now click on the net, and "shoot." If you miss, go back to the referee and try again. Otherwise, you'll get a message saying that you've scored, and the Cheerleader will cheer for you. Then give yourself a pat on the back and go back to talk to the referee.

Gnome Cheerleader

Passing:

When you get the ball, go to one side of the court and you will see "pass to gnome baller". Click on it and then it will say go long. Get as far as you can before he passes the ball to you. When you receive the ball, quickly get close to the net and click the ball to shoot. If you miss go back to the referee and try again. If you score, a message will appear telling you. Now go back to the referee and try again. If you lose the ball after the baller passes to you, see which gnome says "hehe", then left click to strangle. If you lose the ball before you pass the ball then do the same thing to get the ball, but then pass to the baller as soon as possible. After you pass to the baller, if it says "the gnome was tackled", then go back to the referee and get a new ball.

Strangle Gnome

Rewards:
For each goal you will receive a certain amount of Agility and Ranged experience (see table below). After 5 goals, you get your very own Gnomeball. Note though that you must bank your own Gnomeball to get another one.

Goal Agility XP Ranged XP
Goal 1 4 4
