Divine tears are used in The Battle of Lumbridge event. They are remnants of Guthix's life force that have been scattered throughout the world. There is a large source of this powerful resource just to the west of Lumbridge and it is here were Saradomin and Zamorak are fighting it out to gather and control the resource.
Divine tears are gathered on the battlefield in two ways: killing members of the opposite faction and skilling.
For combat, only creatures on the battlefield will drop divine tears. For skilling, you can use your Fishing, Mining or Woodcutting talents to collect the divine tears. The table below shows the divine tear nodes you are looking for. Note that the nodes may have different colours and properties depending on whether or not there is an active random event. Also note that you do not need any minimum skill levels to interact with the nodes, however the higher your relevant skill then the faster you will gather resources from them.
|Unstable nodes (no tears)|
|Several resource nodes glow a different colour for 30 seconds. Gathering from them gives no resources and causes 10% of the player's maximum health in damage.|
|Unstable nodes (extra tears)|
|Several resource nodes glow a brighter shade of green for 30 seconds. Gathering from them gives triple resources but causes 1% of the player's maximum health in damage.|
|Unstable nodes (metal fragments)|
|Several resource nodes turn silver. Gathering from them will grant sacred metal fragments instead of the usual shards.|
As you gather tears you will notice that you start getting fewer and fewer. This is because you are only allowed to gather a set amount per day and so the rate will slow to prevent you from reaching that cap and not being able to contribute to your faction any more that day. The battle interface will show you how many resources you should be getting. Note that members have a higher cap and so will get more resources in one go at the beginning of the day.
Although divine tears are mostly harvested from the battle field, regular skilling activities yield some in much smaller amounts. The activities that provide a chance for divine tears are:
The total number of resources obtained in this method, is limited by the daily limit, meaning that it is possible to obtain your full daily resource total from outside of the battlefield. Although this will take substantially longer to achieve.
In order to contribute to your faction, you must deposit any gather divine tears at your faction's deposit point, found in the central area of your faction's war camp. Simply left-click the deposit point to move all of your gathered tears into the collection point.
Divine tears cannot be banked.
