Tears of Guthix: Go with the Flow

If you've never tried Tears of Guthix before, it's a cool D&D located under Lumbridge which - after completing the short Tears of Guthix quest - can be played up to once a week for a handy XP boost to your lowest-levelled skill. It's steeped in RuneScape lore too, as you'll tell stories of your adventures to Juna - a serpentine servant of Guthix - in exchange for a short time catching the XP-giving tears.

The first thing veterans among you will notice is the full graphical rework. Juna, now super-sized and draped across the entrance to the tears alcove, makes for an imposing sight as she unravels the skeins of your fate. The tears themselves now make for a stunning cascade down the beautifully re-rendered walls, and the light creatures shimmer eerily as you make your way through the cave.

We've multiplied XP gain in the cave by three times, bringing it in line with equivalent areas of gameplay. The biggest boost comes to high-level players, though. Those of you with 80 Crafting and Mining can make an ornate and extra-large bowl for up to five times the XP gain you'd have got before the update.

We've made some technical tweaks so that switching between the streams of tears is quicker and feels more responsive. We've also updated the Games Necklace so it can be used to teleport directly to Juna's cave. The new interface we've built for it includes keyboard shortcuts so, it's quicker and easier to use than ever.

Whether it's your first time collecting the tears, it's a cozy part of your weekly routine, or you've been waiting for a reason get back into the flow, it's the best time ever to drink deeply from the Tears of Guthix.

How to start Tears of Guthix:

First, you must complete the Tears of Guthix quest, which has the following requirements:
44 Quest Points
20 Crafting
49 Firemaking
20 Mining
You may then complete the D&D once per week, but you also need to have obtained at least one of the following since you last collected the tears:
1 Quest Point
100,000 XP. This can be shared across any number of skills.
Other requirements:

In order to craft the improved bowl, you must have at least the following. You will then be able to talk to Juna to begin the process of making the bowl:

80 Crafting
80 Mining

Solomon's Store is now stocking Dragon Keepsake Keys. One of these handy objects will allow you to convert any wearable item into a cosmetic re-skin for your gear, so you can truck down into the QBD's lair with your p-hat proudly on display. Log into Solomon's General Store to treat yourself, or check out our FAQ if you have any questions.
Later this week, Yelps will be introducing D&D Tokens onto the Squeal of Fortune. Fancy an extra go per week on Tears of Guthix? Look out for more details, coming soon!

Ooh i need to get online to do this, i was looking forward to it. I've always enjoyed ToG and wonder how good it now will be.
The Solomon update looks nifty aswel, gonna read the FAQ now and see if i could bind some DG items and use them (cosmetically) in outside world.

Edit:
Looks like it is possible, i'll probably wait until I can get a Primal 2h or if i find another Hood (even tho they are useless for DG I quitte fancy them for their looks.)
I'm Glad they made some good restrictions on how the item works. No borrowing an item and pretending it's yours makes me happy.

It isn't to bad to spend some money on. One item can be bought with the free 200coins or if you are will to spend 3.99 euro on some RuneCoins.

“People are continually pointing out to me the wretchedness of white people in order to console me for the wretchedness of blacks. But an itemized account of the American failure does not console me and it should not console anyone else. That hundreds of thousands of white people are living, in effect, no better than the "African Americans" is not a fact to be regarded with complacency. The social and moral bankruptcy suggested by this fact is of the bitterest, most terrifying kind.”

I like that they've finally decided to do something with Tears of Guthix. It's nice to bring back that old content considering it was kinda useless after lv 50 or so.

Edit: Checkin it out as soon as I get on rs :D

I'm surprised I actually got Dungeoneering XP. I thought it went to your Skill with the lowest XP when you had all Level 99 Skills. Although I do still need to get Level 120 Dungeoneering.

I really love this. Tears of Guthix always felt a bit outdated, especially with newer experience rates. And the fact that you can now teleport directly there is absolutely fantastic, as that was one of the biggest annoyances with doing it each week.

Would it be considered balanced overall then? If that's the case, I can imagine a lot of people getting Dungeoneering XP rather than some other skills that they want.

I'll check it out and do it for myself to see what's up.

It looks fantastic! I've always love Tears of Guthix and now it looks even better after the revamp. Time to get 80 mining or the larger bowl :-)  5/5!

Got 40.8K XP from the upgraded bowl.
Finally worth doing it every week.
