The World window is a portal that was suppose to lead the airuts to tuska, but in this case they couldn't any more. It is powered by Tuska's anima that now connects to Gielinor. No it isn't, it was stated by jagex in a vip Q&A that it "just there" it was meant for the airuts as a viewing window to worlds as well.

Always seemed like just a portal generated by Tuska's power to me. I mean, it's clearly made up of her hair/tentacle things. So the airut bound her "hair" together and created a portal that they can use for whatever they want. We know from one of the Acca's that the airut remained on Mazcab after Tuska drank from it, so it kind of makes sense that's the last place the portal connected to.


Seems like. Tuska chomps up worlds, gains power, that power is used to power the world window. With her dead, her residual energy has been going towards it, keeping it powered (hence her back still pulsing).

Like any piece of lore from the Watch, it's pretty shaky. Tuska's body was chock-full of bonus anima, cos Anima Mundis are to Tuska as slop is to a sow. For whatever reason, it coalesced into a window, that become a portal when she got killed pretty dead. Given the role of Airut mystics in guiding/controlling the beast, I suppose we can assume they originally channeled her power into a window, but that's more player speculation than anything.

For now, you're probably best off just treating it like a game mechanic, until/if someone else decides to put more meaningful lore behind it.

You guys already touched on it, but I wanted to clarify that the world window did not open up for us to go to the Goebies. In the current Tuska/airut lore, after Tuska landed and did her end of things, the Airut are meant to come and finish off the world, presumably through the world window. It is heavily implied that the airut really, really enjoyed Mazcab and so that is part of the reason why they did not come earlier, but obviously now with Tuska dead I have to imagine they are not very keen on coming to Gielinor anyway.

Also, it is also implied that the airut believe themselves to have been a sort of guiding "leash" for Tuska through dialogue with certain goebies on Mazcab (I believe either Acca Otot or Acca Kanata). The goebie counters this by saying that they merely lived on her flesh like parasites with no real control, but that pretty much explains the idea that there was/is some entity controlling Tuska. It is very possible (and if it comes to fruition it will likely be through Raids that it is revealed) that there is some mastermind Airut behind it all, but an airut nonetheless.

If you want interesting Mazcab lore, look into the strange glowing orb (which sadly isn't meant to be continued until Raids pt. 2 is released). This entity is meant to precede Tuska so is very likely not related to her at all, and certain J-Mods even said that something happened to disrupt the anima (goebies don't call it anima, they call it nemi) of Mazcab, and it was this disruption that attracted Tuska to going there. I have a lot of ideas for this in mind, some of which were shared on my thread that I sadly have not been able to keep up with.

What about the Airut shaman? If I recall, he's supposed to be some very powerful Airut magic-user currently residing somewhere in Mazcab. I also recall reading somewhere that he is responsible for Yakamaru being the way he is, through mind control of some sort.
Perhaps the Airut shaman is the one who opened the World Window, from Mazcab, to steer Tuska. The Window turned into a portal because usually when Tuska got through with crashing into a world, the Airut themselves would jump in and finish the job before Tuska nommed on the Anima. Perhaps the shaman saw us killing Tuska and wanted us to come to Mazcab, for him to get revenge?

Correct about the Airut Shaman being the one who controls Yakamaru, I am fairly certain that is confirmed, and it is possible for it to be the entity behind "controlling" Tuska but I am more on board with the idea that Tuska just kind of did her thing and the Airuts helped, while thinking they had control. Specifically it was said that Tuska was attracted to Mazcab because of a disruption in its anima system, not that she just went there or was driven there.

As for the Airut Shaman, or any other controller, opening the portal I seriously doubt that. Perhaps originally (when they first got on board with her), but it only opened this time after Tuska landed on Gielinor which to me implies that it opened specifically because she had arrived to her next destination. I don't see how the controlling entity would know that she reach Gielinor otherwise, or even that she was dead. I do agree with the idea that the portal opened specifically to allow the airuts passage to Gielinor, however, because everything we know, especially about the relationship between Tuska and the Airut, suggests that. Somehow it was an automatic thing though, that just happened whenever she landed.

What if Tuska herself opens the portal, and did so as a last ditch effort as she was dying? Maybe her intentions were for her last act to be opening the portal and calling the Airut to Gielinor to invade, using her now still body as a base of sorts? Obviously she got step 1 complete and opened the portal, but she became immobilized before she could use it to call the Airut?

Perhaps Tuska had a level of intelligence beyond what we realize. After all, Guthix only saw her when locked in battle, where it seems instincts would take over. After she was blinded, I can imagine almost any being going into a rage if they got stabbed in both eyes. We ourselves only ever got to see her after that. Obviously if what is said about a disruption in the anima system on Mazcab attracting Tuska is true, she is at least intelligent enough to recognize, be able to pinpoint, and then blindly make her way to, a world rich with anima.
