Carrying logs

Carrying logs is when the player carries one or two logs, collecting them and dropping them. It has effects on the player that are often unnoticed.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Carrying logs will prevent the player from entering combat. They will need to drop the logs to fight. If the player enters water while carrying logs, they will drop the logs. Generally the player cannot collect logs on water while they are swimming. If the logs are under the water, the player is able to collect them, though it is rather bugged. When the player is carrying logs, they will burn more energy. Carrying Logs will burn 1 calories Per Second. The energy consumption is increase when the player is carrying two logs instead of one. When the player drops logs, they will drop at their right side. If the player jumps while dropping logs, the logs will be more likely to roll away as they have collected speed on the fall. This can be used to drop logs down a hill to a specific location.
