I had forgotten how quietly hilarious this game is. I was reminded of this today when I found out about salamanders.
There's a weapon in RuneScape called a salamander. It's called that because it's literally a salamander. It's a live magical lizard that can breathe fire. You feed it tar and then point it at an enemy so it can spit flames on them. It has a certain range, which is one square.
So, it's a projectile attack that requires you to use a magical creature to generate it and it can only be done at the range of a sword, exposing you to all the normal dangers of melee. As such, Jagex gave it three different attack modes.
One mode gives you melee experience. Once mode gives you range experience. One mode gives you magic experience. It's the only weapon in the game that does this.
The entire concept of running around with a live salamander shooting fire at things has entertained me all day, especially because it's so over powered in terms of simplifying combat training. It's not really viable in competitive combat, but I don't need it to be. It's perfect as it is.
