Stat Spy

A player casting the Lunar spell Stat Spy.

The Lunar Spells are a set of spells contained in the Lunar spellbook. The spellbook is unlocked upon completion of the quest Lunar Diplomacy; additionally, completion of Dream Mentor unlocks seven more spells. The spellbook was further expanded with the release of Livid Farm, which offers eight new Lunar spells. While Ancient Magicks focus primarily on combat spells and the standard spellbook contains a mixture of all types of spells, the Lunar spellbook is almost entirely composed of noncombat spells, including teleportation spells, skill-related spells, spells that allow players to aid others in various ways, and miscellaneous spells with unique effects. All Lunar spells make use of astral runes, with the exception of Home Teleport, which is free to cast, and Polypore Strike, which uses charges from the Polypore Staff rather than runes. In total, the spellbook contains fifty-two spells.

OverviewEdit

Lunar spells interface

The Lunar spellbook.

The Lunar spellbook contains no direct combat spells that are cast on targets to deal damage, lower stats, or otherwise give negative effects. Rather, most Lunar spells are strictly noncombat spells which offer various benefits to some skills such as Crafting and Farming. Some Lunar spells allow players to aid others in various ways, such as curing poison, offering teleportation, and restoring life points. The Lunar Spellbook is extremely popular as a support system in large group battles against monsters because of their ability to heal allies and then swiftly heal themselves with Dream; they are especially popular if they have completed Dream Mentor and can use Ancient Magicks because of the Spellbook Swap spell allowing them to use the healing abilities of the Lunar spellbook and aggressive Ancient Magick spells such as Ice Barrage.

A few Lunar spells can be used to indirectly influence combat. Vengeance and Vengeance Other are two highly sought-after spells which will reflect back damage to monsters or players. Boost Potion Share and Stat Restore Pot Share are used to distribute stat-boosting and stat-restoring potions, respectively, to other players.

Some spells have individual effects that do not fit into any particular category. Monster Examine and Stat Spy allow the caster to view information about monsters and players, respectively. Dream significantly increases the rate at which life points regenerate. NPC Contact allows the caster to speak to several important NPCs from a distance. Spellbook Swap, the spell with the 2nd highest Magic requirement in the Lunar spellbook after Borrowed Power, enables the caster to use a spell from a different spellbook.

HistoryEdit

On 24 July 2006 the Lunar spellbook was added and started with 30 spells.

On 27 September 2006 Lunar Home Teleport was added as part of the Skill Tutors update.

On 15 May 2007, Jagex added 7 new spells that could be used after completing the Dream Mentor quest. The 7 spells are Monster Examine, Humidify, Hunter Kit, Stat Spy, Dream, Plank Make, and Spellbook Swap.

Also, on 18 September 2007, the spell Ourania Teleport was released by Jagex along with the Ourania Runecrafting Altar.

On 2 October 2007, Jagex changed the effects of the Lunar Home Teleport spell so that, if cast on a Non-members world, it would teleport the player to Lumbridge.

On 4 April 2011 the Livid Farm activity was released, adding eight new spells to the Lunar spellbook.

On 23 August 2011 new spells came out adding three new spells to the Lunar spellbook.

On 14 September 2011, along with Ritual of the Mahjarrat, a new spell called Tune bane ore was released.

On 14 March 2012 the Lunar Home Teleport spell was replaced by Home Teleport allowing players to access the Lodestone Network.

On 20 November 2012 Energy Transfer was removed as part of the Evolution of Combat.

In order to use the spellbook, the quest Lunar Diplomacy must be completed. This requires that players also complete The Fremennik Trials, Lost City, Rune Mysteries, and Shilo Village.  To unlock more spells, the quest Dream Mentor must be completed, which further requires the player to have completed Eadgar's Ruse. The last set of spells can be unlocked by completing the Livid Farm. The skills required to unlock all the spells in the Lunar spell book can be seen in the table to the right.

Switching spellbooksEdit

Once the Lunar spellbook is unlocked, players can switch to it by praying at the astral altar on the southeastern area of Lunar Isle. Unlike the altar in Jaldraocht Pyramid where players switch to and from Ancient Magicks, the astral altar will not drain Prayer points when prayed at.

The quickest way to reach the altar is to break an astral altar teleport tablet, obtained from The Great Orb Project, or use the wicked hood teleport to teleport to the astral altar. Additionally, players already using Lunar spells can cast Moonclan Teleport or Tele Group Moonclan to teleport to the entrance to the town, and then run south past the suqahs to the altar. If a player has obtained a Seal of passage from Brundt the Chieftain, it can be used once per day to teleport to the entrance of the city on Lunar Isle. Perhaps the easiest method, however, is to cast Home Teleport after having completed Lunar diplomacy and selecting the Lunar Isle icon from the Lodestone Network interface. For others, the best option is to speak to Lokar on the docks of Rellekka and travel to Pirates' Cove, then travel to Lunar Isle by speaking to Captain Bentley. Rellekka can be quickly reached by a number of methods, including an enchanted lyre, House Teleport (with a player-owned house located in Rellekka), a Rellekka tablet, or fairy ring codes A•J•R (Fremennik Slayer Dungeon) or C•I•P (Miscellania).

Spell SummaryEdit

All spells that affect players within a 3x3 area around the caster will also affect players standing in the caster's square.

TriviaEdit

  • No Lunar spells use chaos runes or soul runes.
  • Of the various combination runes, only steam, smoke and mud runes can be useful for Lunar spells, as no Lunar spells use combinations of air and earth runes, fire and earth runes or water and air runes.
  • Currently Polypore Strike is the only spell in this book that can be autocasted, this may be due to the fact that there are no other combat spells.
  • When the rest feature was added, the lifepoint-restore rate for the Dream spell was changed from three times faster to five times faster.
  • On 28 July 2009, the Lunar spell book received a graphical update.
  • Energy Transfer icon Energy transfer was a spell that when cast on another player, the targeted player received 100% of the caster's special attack energy and some run energy. This could only be cast in a multi combat area and when the caster had a full special attack bar. It required level 91 magic and three astral runes, two law runes and one nature rune to be cast. It was removed with the introduction of the Evolution of Combat because special attack bars were removed, rendering this spell useless.
  • The Moonclan state that Lunar magic comes from the power of Gielinor's moon, which has since been revealed to be Zanaris. This may explain why the Lunar Staff is a modified Dramen Staff (the item used to reach Zanaris).
