IntroductionEdit

Incandescent memory detail

This guide describes the most effective methods to train the Divination skill. The experience rate estimates in this guide do not incorporate the use of any experience boosting items or bonus experience. Divination is a gathering skill which involves harvesting from wisps to create springs, from which energy and memories can be harvested. Energy can be used to create products such as divine locations and both memories and energy can be deposited into energy rifts to obtain Divination experience. While harvesting from springs other than pale springs, players have a chance of obtaining an enriched memory in place of a regular memory. Enriched memories award greater amounts of Divination experience when harvested or deposited at an energy rift. Energy rifts and groups of wisps can be found at wisp colonies.

Training the Divination skill typically involves harvesting from wisps until a full inventory of memories has been obtained and then using the "enhanced experience" right-click option on an energy rift to deposit the memories into the rift. Using this option converts memories into Divination experience, consuming energy to grant a larger amount of experience. If the player does not have sufficient energy then memories will be converted into a smaller amount of experience. Players can purchase energy from the Grand Exchange to ensure that they always have enough energy to receive enhanced amounts of Divination experience when converting memories. When training players should harvest enriched wisps and collect chronicle fragments whenever possible and ensure that they make a boon each time that they advance to a higher level wisp colony.

Enriched incandescent spring

While training at any wisp colony, except the pale wisp colony, an enriched wisp will spawn every 20 minutes (on the hour, at 20 minutes past the hour, and at 40 minutes past the hour, with a small degree of variability). When harvesting from an enriched spring players will always gain enriched memories. If a player's inventory becomes full while they are harvesting from an enriched spring, then any regular memories that are in their inventory will be replaced with enriched memories. Players should ensure they have one regular memory in their inventory before harvesting from an enriched wisp, as it will be consumed by the enriched spring formed in order to prolong its duration.

Chronicle fragment detail

Players have a 1/25 chance of spawning a chronicle fragment approximately every 1,000 times that they harvest a memory from a spring. Catching a chronicle fragment gives Hunter experience equivalent to 10 times the player's Hunter level. Initially only the player that spawned the chronicle fragment will be able to see the fragment, before it becoming visible to all players. Players may possess up to 30 chronicle fragments at any one time, though the spawn rate of chronicle fragments decreases if the player has over 10, so it is recommended to exchange them at this point. They may be exchanged in multiples of 10 with May Stormbrewer or Eilwynn for Divination experience. If the player has completed The World Wakes then they can alternatively deposit chronicle fragments at the altar within Guthix's Cave to gain 33% additional Divination experience. Players may gain between 387, with level 1 Divination, and 7,596, with level 99 Divination, experience from handing in 10 chronicle fragments to May Stormbrewer or Eilwynn and between 516, with level 1, and 10,128, with level 99, experience from handing in 10 fragments at Guthix's Cave.

Boons are an untradeable, single-use item that can be created from divine energy. When a boon is used it grants the permanent effect of the player gaining 10% more experience and energy when converting a particular type of memory. Boons can be made using energy of the same or tier below of energy corresponding to the memory tier that they affect. Boons are available for all types of divination spot except cursed energy.

Players who obtain the diviner's headwear add-on as well as diviner's headwear can combine these items to create modified diviner's headwear. In addition to granting a 1% divination experience bonus, the modified headwear gives 3 daily teleports to Guthix's Cave and grants the player chronicle fragments once per day. The number of chronicle fragments the player may receive is dependent on the number of components of the diviner's set that they own; up to 3 fragments may be claimed, with 4 or more pieces of the diviner's outfit.

  • 3 daily teleports to any wisp colony that the player has the required quests and Divination level to use.

Summoning familiarsEdit

Nightmare muspah

There are 2 familiars which can be used to help train Divination. With at least level 81 Summoning players can summon a nightmare muspah. The nightmare muspah is the only beast of burden that can be used to store divine energy and memories, with a capacity of 32 inventory spaces. A muspah's inventory will automatically be filled and emptied as the player harvests from springs and converts energy and memories using an energy rift. The nightmare muspah also gives a passive effect of a 3% increased chance of finding enriched memories.

A light creature can be summoned with level 88 Summoning. While having a light creature summoned the player has a 10% chance of instantly converting memories into experience as they are harvested. Energy is not received when memories are converted in this way. The light creature's special move scroll, costing 2,900, can be used to gain an enlightened buff, where the player's chance of instantly converting a memory is increased to 50% for 6 minutes.

SkillchompasEdit

Crimson skillchompa detail
Crimson skillchompa equipped

When equipped while training Divination, skillchompas are consumed each time the player's character attempts to siphon a wisp, even if the action is unsuccessful in gaining a memory. If a player successfully gains experience while siphoning with a skillchompa then they receive an additional 10% of the normal base experience. Each time a siphoning attempt is unsuccessful a player gains 5% of the bonus experience that they would have received if the attempt was successful. When used to train Divination, they also give an increased chance of obtaining an enriched memory when harvesting wisps.

Enrichment aurasEdit

Legendary enrichment aura detail

Enrichment auras increase a player's chance of obtaining an enriched memory by a percentage while they are activated. These auras' effects last for one hour after they are activated. Players may use 5 or 10 vis wax to extend an enrichment aura's activation time by 50% or 100% (costing 28,050 or 56,100). This effect must be applied before the aura is activated. Once an enrichment aura has been used the player must wait 3 hours before using it again. Enrichment auras can be bought using Membership loyalty points. All lower tiers of the aura must be owned before a higher tier aura can be purchased.

Levels 1-99+: cursed wispsEdit

Cursed spring

Players may begin siphoning from cursed wisps from level 1 Divination. The experience gained from harvesting cursed memories from cursed wisps varies between 1 and 12, depending on the player's Divination level. Up to 106,000 experience an hour can be gained, at level 99 Divination if using the "enhanced experience" option when converting cursed memories. The cursed energy obtained from the wisps may only be traded directly with other players and cannot be traded on the Grand Exchange, so it is not practical to buy additional energy for training at cursed wisps.

The cursed wisp colony is located at the Sword of Edicts in the centre of the Wilderness Volcano. It is possible to be attacked by other players whilst training at the cursed wisp colony. Death will result in loss of the player's items: players should not bring items that they are not willing to lose while training at this location. Wearing a demonic skull will increase the experience gained from training at cursed wisps by 20%.

Pale wisps (levels 1–10)Edit

Pale energy detail

At level 1 Divination players may only harvest from pale wisps, which are located south-east of Draynor Village, west of the Lumbridge crater. With level 1-10 Divination players can obtain around 5,000 experience an hour from training at pale wisps using additional bought energy, requiring approximately 725 pale energy (costing 33,350) per hour, or 4,000 experience an hour if not buying additional energy. As only 1,154 experience is required to reach level 10 Divination, players with no previous experience of the skill should achieve level 10 in approximately 19 minutes, using around 225 pale energy (costing 10,350) if using bought energy. Players can easily hand in chronicles to May Stormbrewer while training at these levels, as she is located next to the pale wisp colony.

Flickering wisps (levels 10–20)Edit

Flickering energy detail

At level 10, players should move on to training at the flickering wisp colony, which is found east of the Falador lodestone. Around 10,000 experience an hour can be gained by training at flickering wisps if the player purchases additional energy, or 8,000 experience an hour without buying additional energy. This is the first location at which players may encounter enriched versions of a colony's wisps.

Bright wisps (levels 20–30)Edit

Bright energy detail

With at least level 20 Divination players can move to the bright wisp colony, which is found east of Varrock, west of the Digsite.

Glowing energy detail

From level 30 players can train south of Seer's Village, just east of the Sorcerer's Tower, at the glowing wisp colony to gain approximately 18,000 experience an hour, if using additional purchased energy, or 15,000 experience an hour if not using additional energy.

Sparkling wisps (levels 40–50)Edit

Sparkling energy detail

Players with level 40-50 Divination can train at the sparkling wisp colony to gain around 23,000 experience an hour without purchasing additional energy, or 28,000 experience an hour if using additional energy.

Gleaming wisps (levels 50–60)Edit

Gleaming energy detail

From levels 50-60 Divination players should train at the gleaming wisp colony in the centre of Karamja jungle, north-east of the nature altar and Shilo Village. Without purchasing additional energy, players can gain around 27,000 experience an hour from training at this location. Around 41,000 experience an hour may be gained if buying additional energy.

Vibrant wisps (levels 60–70)Edit

Vibrant energy detail

At level 60 Divination players should start training at the vibrant wisp colony, just north of Mobilising Armies. Around 44,000 experience an hour may be gained by players who are not using additional purchased energy. Around 53,000 experience an hour may be gained if using additional energy.

Lustrous wisps (levels 70–75)Edit

Lustrous energy detail

With level 70 Divination players can start training at the lustrous wisp colony. The lustrous wisp colony is found just east of the Slayer Tower. Without purchasing additional energy, players may earn around 54,000 experience an hour from training using lustrous wisps. Players who have purchased additional energy can gain around 66,000 experience an hour.

Elder wisps or lustrous wisps (75-80)Edit

Elder energy detail

Players who have completed the Fate of the Gods quest can train using elder wisps, found within the Elder Halls, from level 75 to 80 Divination. At this location enriched wisps spawn in the corridors, rather than near the crater which is located at the centre of the area.

Players who are unable to access the Elder Halls can continue to train using lustrous wisps until level 80 Divination.

Brilliant wisps (levels 80–85)Edit

Brilliant energy detail

With level 80-85 Divination players can train at the brilliant wisp colony, just east of the Mage Training Arena. Players who are training without purchasing additional energy can gain around 60,000 experience an hour from training at brilliant wisps, while 73,000 experience an hour can be gained using extra energy.

Players who have at least one level 99 skill or who have completed all quests can build a brilliant wisp colony portal within the garden of the Max guild in Prifddinas to teleport directly to the brilliant wisp colony. Alternatively, if fairy rings are unlocked, the fairy ring B•I•P can be used to teleport directly north of the colony at the entrance of the Polypore Dungeon.

Radiant wisps (levels 85–90)Edit

Radiant energy detail

From level 85–90 Divination players should train on Dragontooth Island at the radiant wisp colony. Around 65,000 experience an hour can be gained by players who are training at radiant wisps without using additional bought energy. When using additional energy players can gain up to 79,000 experience an hour.

Players who have at least one level 99 skill or who have completed all quests can build a radiant wisp colony portal within the garden of the Max guild in Prifddinas to teleport directly to the radiant wisp colony. Players who have the hoardstalker ring can also use that to teleport to the wisp colony.

Luminous wisps (levels 90–95)Edit

Luminous energy detail

At level 90 Divination players can train using luminous wisps to gain around 71,000 experience an hour, without using bought energy, or around 83,000 experience an hour, using bought energy. The luminous wisp colony is located south of Sophanem, in the Kharidian Desert. Players who have at least one level 99 skill or who have completed all quests can build a luminous wisp colony portal within the garden of the Max guild in Prifddinas to teleport directly to the luminous wisp colony. While training in this area players will lose life points due to dehydration from the desert heat every 90 seconds. Players can use waterskins or an enchanted water tiara, if the Dealing with Scabaras quest has been completed, to avoid taking damage from the desert heat. A tome of frost reduces the damage taken from the desert heat to the point that natural life point regeneration is more than sufficient to exceed damage taken.

Incandescent wisps (levels 95–99+)Edit

Incandescent energy detail

The final colony location, which can be used by players with at least level 95 Divination, is just south of the Poison Waste, south-west of Castle Wars. Players may obtain approximately 97,000 experience an hour from training on incandescent wisps using additional bought energy with level 99 Divination, requiring approximately 3,200 incandescent energy (costing 960,000) per hour. Around 81,500 experience can be gained per hour with level 99 Divination if the player is not purchasing additional energy. Players who have at least one level 99 skill or who have completed all quests can build an incandescent wisp colony portal within the garden of the Max guild in Prifddinas to teleport directly to the incandescent wisp colony.

Alternative methods of gaining experienceEdit

Completing questsEdit

See here for a list of quests that grant Divination experience on completion.

Guthixian CacheEdit

Large memory equipped

Players can gain Divination experience as a reward for participating in the Guthixian Cache Distraction and Diversion. Guthixian Cache takes place every 1 hour and can be accessed using one of the energy rifts found at any wisp colony, except the energy rift located at the pale wisp colony.

Player automaton

While participating in Guthixian Cache players may earn points by taking a memory from any of memory deposits found at the walls surrounding the area and depositing it into the unstable rift located at the centre of the room. Players should ensure that they avoid any active automatons while carrying a memory, as automatons will destroy any memories carried by players who come into contact with them. A player may also gain points if they transform themself into Cres by using the "transform" option on any of the Statues of Cres located in the four corners of the room and temporarily subdue automatons. The player will be transformed into Cres for 60 seconds. After transforming out of the Cres form, players must wait 60 seconds before they can use a Statue of Cres to transform again.

Divination level required Memory that can be deposited Automaton that can be subdued Number of points obtained
1 Tiny memory Ancient automaton 1
45 Raw memory Confused automaton 2
85 Large memory Enraged automaton 3

A maximum of 100 points can be gained each time that a player participates in a Guthixian Cache and up to 200 points may be earned each day. Players can gain between 3,300 and 73,400 experience, with level 1-99 Divination, if they obtain 100 points in a Guthixian Cache. Each Guthixian Cache lasts for 10 minutes, meaning that experience is awarded at a rate equivalent to 19,800-440,400 Divination experience an hour.

Every 3 hours Guthixian Cache additionally allows the player to gain a passive benefit of having a 10% chance of converting all memories at once while converting memories using an energy rift, after the cache has ended. This effect can last for up to 20 minutes, depending on the number of points that are gained by the player while participating in the Distraction and Diversion.
