My Arm is a troll farmer at the Troll Stronghold. He is the main focus of My Arm's Big Adventure quest as well as Burntmeat's assistant.

Name Edit

His name "My Arm" derived from when he was just a baby. Trolls are named after the first thing they - successfully or not - ate. Since he first tried to eat his dad's arm, his dad decided to name him "My Arm".

My Arm's Big Adventure Edit

My Arm is introduced to the player at the very beginning of the quest. Burntmeat learnt that Goutweed could be grown again as it was previously thought to have been botanically extinct after the Trolls had picked it all for use as a cooking ingredient. Burntmeat discovered that it was possible to regrow the weed when he was interrogating a captured adventurer who he was preparing to boil into a stew, after he learnt about this he cooked him anyway. Burntmeat encourages the player to speak with My Arm to begin to process of regrowing the herb.

My Arm is a keen farmer but unfortunately he has little knowledge of how farming actually works, he has planted several objects on the Troll Strongholds roof including dead goats and crates, however none of these grew. My Arm enthusiastically accompanies the player to Karamja where Goutweed can supposedly be grown as learnt from the late adventurer.

However My Arm is a little too enthusiastic and causes much havoc when the player attempts to cultivate the herb.

After completion of My Arm's Big Adventure, My Arm will watch over a herb patch that a player can use for free. My Arm will ensure that the patch will not become diseased.

In the battle against the Giant Roc, My Arm helps the player in defeating it, even though he only hits 10-30.

King of the Dwarves Edit

My Arm plays a role in the King of the Dwarves quest. He can be found in the tunnel next to the Black Guard Headquarters, along with Big Rock, Pretty Flower and Sparkly Crystal. He gives you a pretty flower to give to the troll named Pretty Flower.

The Mighty Fall Edit

My Arm later appears on Yu'biusk along with Burntmeat during the The Mighty Fall quest. He says that he came to the Kyzaj Tournament in support of the player instead of the troll champion, as he would rather cheer for a friend. My Arm was initially unaware of Bandos' death, and only finds out when Burntmeat mentions it.


My arm's patches

The patches in which My Arm tried to farm

  • When using goutweed on My Arm, he will say "Stop it - you make My Arm hungry".
  • In the beginning of the quest My Arm's Big Adventure, when joking about My Arm's name, he tells you about how he sees players with numbers and weird names. This is claimed a joke by Jagex considering how many players have numbers in their usernames.
  • My Arm tried farming before the quest; he tried "growing" a trolley, a crate, rocks, a tree branch, some fish, and a goat.
  • Once you return from Ardougne, My Arm says "Dolce domus" and claims that "It means home, sweet home in some old language". This language is actually Latin, which he knows because he is an "ed-yu-cat-ed troll".
  • Since goutweed requires 29 Farming to grow and My Arm gains a Farming level during My Arm's Big Adventure, it can be assumed he has at least 13,363 Farming experience at quest completion. If assuming that the xp rates for hardy goutweed equal that of normal goutweed (105 xp for planting a seed and 45 xp per successful harvest) and that My Arm picks only one herb for each seed planted, then My Arm can be deduced to gain 150 Farming xp every 80 minutes. Assuming this rate has remained constant since his release 3,560 days ago, he will have accumulated approximately 7,900,000 Farming xp, which, added to the 13,000 he already had, gives My Arm level 93 Farming.
