God Statues (members only)

In this new Construction distraction and diversion, you'll help Copernicus Glyph - master sculptor - to build up to four statues each month at sites around Gielinor.

Posted Image

There are four statue sites around the world: in Lumbridge, Taverley, Canifis and Gu'Tanoth. At each site, you'll have the choice of building a statue of any of the following: Commander Zilyana, Juna, Kr'il Tsutsaroth and General Graardor. It's up to you which statue you build and where, but tempers in the area may flare if you make a controversial choice!

When you've made your choice, you'll follow Copernicus's expert directions to build scaffolding, from which his latest masterwork can be wrought. Once you've determined the correct number of pieces to be used and arranged them in columns of the right heights, the statue will be completed and you'll earn a hearty chunk of Construction XP. The quality of the statue that you build - and the XP reward - will depend on your current Construction level.

If you have chosen a statue that's appropriate to the area in which you're building, then you'll have the opportunity to pray at that statue for a Prayer XP reward. However, if you've built a statue that ill fits the area's faith, then you'll earn the ire of one of the local god's more militant followers. Drive off the fanatic who attacks you and you'll earn a Slayer XP reward. In this way, you can choose to receive either Slayer or Prayer XP for each of the four statues that you can build per month.

At the start of each calendar month, any statues you've built will be destroyed, and you'll be able to complete the D&D four more times for further rewards. Build any one statue four months in a row (in any location) and you'll earn a wieldable chisel, in the colour of the statue's related god. When wielded, this handy tool can be used to boost your Construction level by 1 - great for making some headway in your player-owned house!

So, what're you waiting for? Prove to Copernicus that you're a chip off the old block and earn yourself some rocking rewards!

  • Beating Marmaros's kill count in the Thok Your Block Off saga has been made easier.

"Men have called me mad, but the question is not yet settled
whether madness is or is not the loftiest intelligence whether
all that is profound does not spring from disease of thought
from moods of mind exalted at the expense of general intellect"

Graphical:
  • The paladin shield and sword cosmetic overrides are now better placed on your character model.
  • The paladin hero helmet cosmetic override no longer causes a minor neck stretching issue.
  • The paladin sword cosmetic override now sheathes on the correct side.

Skills & Minigames:
  • Players can make moss and ice titan scrolls correctly.
  • Slate and gunpowder will no longer be confused in a Player-Owned Port voyage.
  • Completing a special voyage overnight no longer removes the adventurer from the list of special voyages given.
  • You now take more damage when failing to pickpocket a Desert Phoenix.
  • Chocolate powder can once again be created in F2P worlds.
  • The cooking requirement for rocktail soup has been increased from level 90 to level 93 for consistency.
  • The secondary objective of defeating more enemies than Marmaros in Thok Your Block Off has been made easier.
  • It is no longer possible to give the signature heroes the wrong abilities in the Three's Company saga.

Other:
  • An issue where players could pick up their pets when they shouldn't have been able to has been fixed.
  • Biscuits no longer restore prayer points when they haven't been eaten.
  • Players can no longer try to join a friend on an instanced world.
  • Players can now sell their Fire Capes to Tzhaar-Mej-Jal for Tokkul again.
  • Camera controls will be restored correctly when selecting a weapon at the beginning of the tutorial.
  • Logging into a free world correctly restores your previous spellbook.
  • It is no longer possible to equip higher level armour than you can use.
It's good that they fixed the bugs with the sagas. Now many people will get their completionist capes.

I haven't done the "fixed" Thok Saga yet, but my friend said it's still glitched?

Glad the Saga is actually possible, got my Comp Cape. The update itself is kind of pointless for myself.

I enjoyed it, although it didn't exactly take that long - do you get anything extra from fighting the followers if you put up the wrong statue?

Did all 4 statues and only got 16k con xp and 6k slay xp.  Definitely lackluster xp for it being once a month.

Thanks to Arno for the +1
Thanks to Teelex for the +2

Will completely forget about this update, seems like a waste of an update to me, being monthly and being poor XP.

Pretty much how I feel about it, The Construction exp is alright but nothing about this is exciting in any way.

If you had a special voyage out for say the Assassin, and when the day reset at 00:00 GMT, if you were to get the Assassin again on the new day it would use up the Assassin because you can only do one special mission per adventurer per day.

Very nice update I'll be doing this D&D. Pretty good rewards for the work to do. I think the rewards are balanced and the statues look pretty good too.
I got 24kp with 90 con and 17k xp prayer with 99 prayer. 164k xp for 5 mins of work.

-84 Con 19,048
