|Release date||9 January 2017 (Update)|
Memorial to Guthix is a Divination Distraction and Diversion revolving around the late god Guthix. The memorial site is located in the Piscatoris Hunter area, just north of the ferrets and Nickolaus's camp and just south of the Phoenix Lair and the Airut. Players can teleport directly to the shrine through the use of memory strands and charged engrams.
While training Divination outside of Dungeoneering, memory strands can be collected and stored in the currency pouch. The strands are stored automatically after adding the strands to the currency pouch for the first time. These strands can be combined with engrams which can be found all around Gielinor to create echoes. Echoes can be placed in the temple to unlock beneficial buffs, gain Divination experience, and reveal lore about Guthix's life on Gielinor.
Completing the set of echoes once is a requirement for the completionist cape and the master quest cape. Unlocking the ability to activate four buffs at once by prestiging it three times is a requirement for the trimmed completionist cape.
The tutorial can be started by talking to Orla Fairweather, standing directly by the entrance of the memorial site, who explains about the site and its function. The following steps are required to complete the tutorial:
- Talk to Orla Fairweather, she gives 80 memory strands and a Naragi engram.
- Charge the engram with 500 pale energy and return to Orla.
- Add the echo to one of the empty plinths.
- Interact with the echo and return to Orla.
- Activate the Harmony of Naragun buff at the fountain of energy.
- Return to Orla once more.
Each time an engram is picked up, a Guthixian butterfly will appear granting experience in your lowest skill when caught. This will only happen the first time an engram is picked up during each prestige. Players cannot pick up and destroy engrams to continuously spawn Guthixian butterflies.
Locations and buffsEdit
|Naragi||Harmony of Naragun||Given by Orla Fairweather during the tutorial. After each prestige it can be found in Naragun, north-west from the fairy ring (AIS), on the floor of Guthix's house. Requires The World Wakes quest, although players only need to have visited Naragun with Guthix before being able to come here again; full completion of the quest is not required.|
|Elder Sword||Time-worn Memories||Found at the Void Knight Outpost, on the south-east end of the island on top of a barrel near the beacon under a canopy.|
|Sword of Edicts||Decree of Mortality||Found near the Sword of Edicts in the center of the Wilderness Volcano, near the cursed energy divination location.|
|Guardians of Guthix||Guardian of Life||Found south of the Tears of Guthix D&D.|
|World Gate||Ethereal Connection||Found near the rocks - northeast of the World gate.|
|Druid||Shared Knowledge||Found in the church building north-east of the god statue in Burthorpe, on top of the altar (it's very small on the corner of the altar).|

The following table lists the number of strands and the number and type of energy required to charge each engram at each of the prestige levels. Energies are tradeable and can be purchased, so the level required to gather them is not needed. A free way to gather the energy required, if a player is willing to take some risks, is to gather cursed energy and transmute it into what is needed. After prestige 3, the amounts of energies and strands needed stay the same.
|Engram||Energy type||Prestige 1||Prestige 2||Prestige 3+||Total|
|Sword of Edicts||Bright||120||450||43,650||168||630||61,110||216||810||78,570||504||1,890||183,330|
|Guardians of Guthix||Glowing||140||500||48,000||196||700||67,200||252||900||86,400||588||2,100||201,600|
|Stone of Jas||Incandescent||300||150||35,400||420||210||49,560||540||270||63,720||1,260||630||148,680|
|Total||2,280 strands||3,192 strands||4,104 strands||9,576 strands|
Upon adding echoes players gain some Divination experience and unlock one of twelve buffs. Initially they're able to activate one and change it with the weekly reset, upon adding an echo for the first time or upon rising up in prestige.
After adding all echoes players can reset their progress by right clicking the fountain of energy and selecting prestige, rising up in prestige and starting over. By doing this, they can activate progressively more buffs. A player may only have 4 buffs active at once even if they continue to prestige past the third prestige. All the buffs remain unlocked even after the player has reset their progress, any buffs active at the time of prestige will remain active. All engrams must be re-obtained from their hiding places, they are not returned to your inventory or bank.

|Time-worn Memories||The experience from converting memories inside Daemonheim is quadrupled.|

|Shared Knowledge||Divine locations will grant you 125% experience but yield no items.|
|Abyssal Transit||Chronicles can now be offered from your inventory. This also affects elder chronicles. Experience is gained as if they were turned in at the Guthix cave upon completion of The World Wakes.|
|Wisp Herder||Converting memories has a small chance to spawn an additional wisp.|
|Sempiternal Souvenirs||Pickpocketing now has a chance to yield Memory Shards. Memory shards can be transmuted into Divine energy products.|

|Stored Power||The benefits from fully completing a Guthixian Cache will be bottled for later use|
Each prestige boosts the rate at which players can acquire memory strands as well as unlocks increasingly ornate butterfly wing overrides. The boost to strands caps at five prestige cycles. The players also unlocks echo wings overrides; glowing, lustrous, and incandescent for respectively the first, second, and third prestige.
After the first prestige, players may give extra memory strands to Orla Fairweather in batches of 1,000 for the Divination experience equivalent to a medium experience lamp. In addition, the teleport option for memory strands and charged engrams will teleport you directly to the butterfly statue instead of outside the memorial entrance.
Players wanting to achieve the most experience per memory strand should continue to prestige rather than turning in extra memory strands for experience. Doing so will cost the player the same amounts of energies and strands as third prestige but give approximately 45,000 more experience (at level 99) than a player would receive by turning in 10,000 memory strands. This method will give much more experience in less time at the cost of the energies and a few minutes gathering engrams.
After completing the distraction and diversion for the first time, Orla will reward the player with up to 4,000 memory strands: 2,000 can be claimed after reaching level 99 in Divination, another 1,000 after reaching virtual level 120 and the final 1,000 after reaching 200,000,000 Divination experience. All available rewards are claimed at once.
- The butterflies and rabbits found in and around the memorial are named and have unique examines.
- Currently after each prestige level the echoes have a new appearance:
- Before prestige 1: Blue
- After prestige 1: Green
- After prestige 2: Gold
- Prior to the release of the Deathbeard's Demise event, players could teleport directly to the memorial by using any of the event noticeboards found around RuneScape.
- After an update on 16 January 2017, the bank chest was moved from the memorial entrance into the memorial, possibly because of it being too close to a very accessible teleport location.
- The maximum possible prestige is 250.
