Tales of the God Wars | Preview God Wars Dungeon 2

Seismic activity has freed the entrance to God Wars Dungeon 2 from the sands that buried it! Get a preview of what you can expect from this deadly dungeon by taking on Tales of the God Wars. Venture across Gielinor that to uncover the events that lead to God Wars Dungeon 2 and reveal the bosses who lurk in its depths and who will be spoiling for a fight with you later this month.

Ancient Outfits have also arrived in stock to Solomon's Store - don't worry, they're not old and threadbare, they're actually rather classy!


A mysterious old man, the Curator, stands by the entrance to God Wars Dungeon 2. He needs your help to finish the chapters of a strange book. Travel across Gielinor, track down the memories of ancient rivalries that still spark conflict and return them to the book’s mysterious pages. Doing so will allow you to view the events that lead to God Wars Dungeon 2 and will reveal something about the bosses who lurk in its depths…

How to Start

Speak to the Curator in the Kharidian desert. He is west of Nardah and north of the agility pyramid.

RuneScape members only.

The Curator Awaits!
Required & Recommended

You will be sent on a journey that goes to several famous locations in the game, some of which have their own quest/skill requirements. Therefore, to fully experience this content, you will need access to Morytania and the original God Wars Dungeon. You will also need 70 strength and other combat stats at that level or higher.

Rewards

On completion, you will be given a number of teletabs to God Wars Dungeon 2, as well as the ability to make more of them.

You will also get divination, summoning, strength and slayer XP throughout and an XP lamp usable in any one of those skills. You will also be rewarded with a special reputation item that you can hand to a faction of your choice when God Wars Dungeon 2 is live to earn a substantial amount of reputation with them.
