Trumbles anyone?

Post by Rogue7414 » Fri Mar 15, 2013 4:04 pm

Ok so I bought a Trumble, I know I know sucker!! Now several jumps later the little bugger is starting to wear thin on me, especially as it floats through my cross hairs at the wrong moment! Can someone please point me in the right direction on how to remove the furry little pest please?

Cheers.

You've only got the one? Don't worry, he'll soon have some friends and then he'll have someone to play with and won't follow you around so much :wink: :lol:

Yes, very. Especially when you cook 'em nice and hot.

Well, as long as it's done humanely and they don't suffer.

<Chuckles> I think Rogue7414 has asked a valid question - I've often wondered how a Trumble infestation is removed, as I've never been enough of sucker to buy one :lol:

They aren't jokes, they were hints without being spoilers...

Sorry, that would be my thickness - I didn't know!! :oops: :P (although I can easily guess now what the answer is ;)). Anyway, there's your answer Rogue7414 :)

The player has the ability to prevent breading more trumbles. You just must create the right circumstances. I don't know why everyone's main objective is killing them. :? They are so cute pets, just don't feed them at midnight. (or am I mixing them up with Gremlins?)

And if you do breed them, try selling them. I know it is difficult to find buyers, but I know at least one salesman that occasionally finds such a stupid naive trader.

Sun-dried trumbles are a staple of MeditOoranean cuisine.
