The trebuchet is a huge frightening machine designed to haul devastating rocks long distances. You need to put a lot of rocks or ore into it as counterweights.


  • To aim a trebuchet, you must load mineable materials into the counterweight, similar to how catapults are cranked. The default firing angle is 45 degrees, which can be changed with a range of 5-85 degrees.
  • Skill requirement: Fine carpentry 80.
  • Cannot be loaded, but must be pushed to its location.
  • Starting power is determined by the loaded amount. Power is directly related to starting velocity.
  • Arc of the projectile is checked along it for any walls, floors, bridges or fences it hits. Otherwise the projectile will travel the full arc until it hits the ground.
  • Projectiles will have a maximum of 20 damage per shot.
