Examine A machine used to test your strength. Pick up the hammer and hit! Gives Strength XP. (2 tokens)

The test of strength machine was an attraction in the Spring Fayre, found in the north-western part of the crater. Hitting it during the event allowed players to gain Strength experience for the cost of two fayre attraction tokens.

Hitting the machine could have resulted in three different messages:

  • What was that? You're not even trying!
  • Oh so close! You nearly hit the bell!
  • The bell has been rung! Good job!

Only the latter message consumed tokens and yielded experience and fayre prize tickets.

At level 99 Strength each successful hit yielded 148.5 experience and may have awarded six fayre price tickets (163.3 experience and one ticket during a Happy Hour). Tickets were only awarded during a successful attempt (the bell rings). There was a chance of approximately 75% of successfully ringing the bell, and at each success, there was about a 33% chance of obtaining a ticket. This gave roughly 25% chance of obtaining a ticket per click.

Each action took about 3.6 seconds, allowing up to 1,000 swings during Happy Hour for approximately 250 tickets.

Attempting to hit the machine without enough fayre attraction tokens prompted the messages:

  • You do not have enough fayre tokens to use this machine. You need 2 tokens.
  • You can get more fayre tokens and tickets from the stall by the Bucking Baroo.

There was a confirmation prompt about gaining experience before hitting the machine that could be toggled off permanently.
