Memorial to Guthix | Vic the Trader Returns

Memorial to Guthix | Vic the Trader Returns

Memorial to Guthix is here – a fascinating new layer to your Divination training where you'll collect, activate and archive the memories of Guthix himself, then show them off in a lush new environment.

Also, if there's Bonus XP burning a hole in your pocket, pay Vic the Trader a visit over in Burthorpe.

Read on to find out more!


Memorial to Guthix

How to Start

Head to the site just north of Eagle's Peak and speak to Orla Fairweather.

Alternatively, train Divination and – once you receive a memory strand – click to teleport to the memorial site, then speak to Orla.

Requirements

RuneScape Membership

During your normal Divination training (not while Dungeoneering), you'll now start to receive memory strands – a new type of item that's stored automatically into your currency pouch.

These are the raw material of the memories of Guthix, which can be used with various flavours of divine energy to activate 12 engrams – items found around the world which will display key memories from the life of Guthix, after he had ascended to godhood.

Speak to Orla Fairweather at the site, who'll set you on the path to hunting down the engrams. Charge them, then return them to the memorial to activate echo plinths, which give you Divination XP and oodles of Guthixian lore – showing a side of Guthix that you've never seen before - plus some awesome Divination-focused rewards.

Rewards

There are a range of persistent buffs and bonuses available from activating the engrams. These include a removed cap on chronicles, increased XP from divine locations, chronicle fragments replaced with Guthixian butterflies, and more. You can have one of these active at a time to begin with, and can switch between them once a week (after the Wednesday reset) at the memorial site's fountain.

Collect all 12 engrams and you can reset the memorial and start again. This prestige mechanic rewards you with a chunk of Divination XP, and unlocks the ability to have an additional reward active (4 maximum) and a butterfly wing cape override with an increasingly elaborate appearance.

Vic the Trader Returns

Everyone's favourite Bonus XP trader is back in Burthorpe and ready for business.

Until the next update on the 16th of January, you'll be able to exchange your unwanted Bonus XP with Vic for credits, which can be on items from his store.

As well as some pricing adjustments, regulars will notice the following changes to Vic's store:

  • Invention Bonus XP can now be traded in
  • Master camouflage outfit pieces have been added to the 'Special outfits' tab
  • Grotesque armour and soul gems have been added to the 'Other' tab
  • The price of all special outfits have increased by 50
  • Skill training dummy crates can now be purchased
  • The second batch of slayer masks has been added to the store
  • Dummies next to Vic have been updated with the latest outfits

Vic will stop trading Bonus XP with the next update, but he'll stick around for a further week (until the update on the 23rd) so you can access his store and use up any outstanding credits.

Please note that Ironman players cannot trade with Vic.


Enjoy!

We hope you've all had a fantastic holiday season, and can't wait for you to experience everything we've got in store in 2017.
