The Lumbridge Rebuildathon was an event released on 30 October 2013 in lieu of a typical Hallowe'en event. The event was removed on 13 November 2013, two weeks after its release.

In the event, players were able to help Foreman George and his crew builders rebuild Lumbridge after the devastation caused by Zamorak and Saradomin fighting in the Battle of Lumbridge. Players also helped them dismantle the camps left by Zamorakians and Saradominists.

Starting the eventEdit

Lumbridge Rebuildathon interface

The interface that displays the contribution, the progress and resources needed.

The event was started by talking to Foreman George in Lumbridge, between Explorer Jack and Hank's houses. He needed players to obtain resources for the rebuilding of several buildings in Lumbridge, namely Explorer Jack's house, Hank's fishing shop Lumbridge Fishing Supplies, and the Lumbridge General Store. When players agreed to help Foreman George, he gave them a Builder's apron.

ResourcesEdit

Lumbridge Rebuildathon resource stacks

Resources stacked and stored

Resources was obtained from around Lumbridge, although the player was limited to collecting 1,500 resources every day. Resources were then handed to Foreman George or one of the other builders in order to contribute. Excess resources that were not needed was stored in stacks located within the Lumbridge crater, to the west of Foreman George. Storing supplies in the stack did not contribute towards the needed resources, although it did give points, albeit less than if given to one of the builders.

Resources in the stack could be claimed by all players who have not met the cap and given to the builders, provided that the stacks are not empty. Resources taken from the stack gave less points when given to the builders than when gathered from elsewhere, meaning that the daily cap was reached slower, allowing players to contribute more resources towards the rebuildathon per day. Players solely interested in points gathered supplies from elsewhere.

The builders accepted either straw OR wheat.

StagesEdit

Stage 1: Explorer Jack's HouseEdit

The rebuilding of Explorer Jack's house began on 30 October. On 31 October, the rebuilding of Explorer Jack's house had reached step 11, but progress was reset to step 1. No official reason was given by Jagex for the reset. The house was completely rebuilt on 4 November. Jack remarks that the house is perfect, and that he requires a carpet and a few decorations for his house. The north-western portion of the Lumbridge Castle wall was also repaired.

Upon completion of this stage, a reward was unlocked: the replica of Explorer Jack's helmet. The reward was claimed from Foreman George.

On 2 November during the RuneFest 2013 event, a new memorial for the fallen combatants of the Battle of Lumbridge was being built in Lumbridge. This memorial was a chance for RuneFesters and in-game players to collaborate.

Until the 13 November, a memorial tent was located next to Foreman George, stating the memorial is being "built away from prying eyes" under the tent. Resources in the form of reclaimed stones could be deposited to Builder Bob, right outside the memorial tent. The contribution of the memorial was shown as a progress meter on the status board, which remained at 0% the entire day. Contributing to the memorial yielded more contribution points, to a maximum of 1,500 in addition to the daily limit, and thus more XP.

It was announced that if the memorial was not completed by the end of 2 November 2013, then it will remain incomplete. It is assumed the lack of movement in the progress meter was indicative of a glitch, which could have made the memorial unbuildable.

On 13 November, the memorial was unveiled. It is in the form of a fountain, and it provides water to fill vessels (such as buckets and vials).

Battle of Lumbridge campsEdit

The battlefield camps used by both Saradominists and Zamorakians during the Battle of Lumbridge were gradually dismantled. Wooden footpaths, tents, barricades and spikes were salvaged from the camps to be used as resources for the event. The Saradominist quartermaster and the Zamorakian quartermaster remained within their camps until the end of the event. The pedestals on which the gods stood, the tower gateways, and the crater itself remain.

Lag issuesEdit

Many players had reported in the RuneScape Forums of experiencing extreme lag while in the event area, especially near Lumbridge Castle and Foreman George. Some players had dubbed the event "Lumbridge Lagathon" due to this lag.

TriviaEdit

  • After rubble was cleared from Explorer Jack's house around an hour after release, a glitch caused the rebuildathon to be completed in a matter of seconds. Some time later, the first floor of Jack's house returned to its ruined state, and the rest of the house and the other buildings soon followed, although NPCs continued to act as though the rebuildathon was complete for some time after. Players who obtained the rewards still have them. This glitch also made it possible for free players to obtain the title reward which was meant to be for members only.
  • On 31 October, when the rebuild of Explorer Jack's house was on step 11, the progress was reset back to the first step. On 1 November, the progress was back at step 11.
  • When starting the Lumbridge Rebuildathon, a player's Adventurer's Log will read: Joined the Rebuildathon to help repair the damage done to Lumbridge by the gods' battle.
  • Even after the interface indicated that all the buildings were completed, players could still take resources and deposit them onto their respective piles for points, in preparations for the next project of the builders.
  • "... the Builder" is a reference to the popular children's animated programme and franchise Bob the Builder. Builder Bob who was part of the memorial is also the same reference.
  • With the release of Ashdale on 26 November 2013, a glitch occurred causing Hank's Fishing shop Lumbridge Fishing Supplies to be in ruin again, with both the Saradomin and Zamorak camp barricades returning to their post-Battle of Lumbridge state and the memorial fountain reverting to its unbuilt state.
