|Release date||4 May 2005 (Update)|
Tears of Guthix is a standalone quest where you must help Juna, a follower of Guthix, restore the cavern where the walls bleed tears, supposedly from Guthix. The rocks weep still, a memory of the God Wars and Guthix's measures to end them.
|“||Deep in the caves in the Lumbridge Swamp is an enchanted place where the tears shed by Guthix when it saw the destruction Saradomin and Zamorak had caused with their wars flow from the very walls. These tears are said to have magical properties to help players gain deeper understanding of the world. However, the cave is guarded by a loyal serpent named Juna who blocks passage from everyone. However, she has grown bored from three thousand years of sitting in the dark cave and wishes to hear stories of life above. Maybe you could come to some sort of arrangement...?||”|

Talk to Juna, deep inside the Lumbridge Swamp cave.

Light at the End...Edit
Enter the Lumbridge Swamp Caves. Wear a spiny helmet for protection against the wall beasts, and a covered light source to prevent gases in the caves from exploding, causing heavy and rapid damage. Bringing both of these items significantly reduces the likelihood of death in the dungeon.
Juna can be reached quickly. Simply walk southward from the Dorgeshuun Mines until you find a small stream where you can use a stepping stone to cross over. However, if you have a candle lantern, it will break into broken glass, even if not lit. On the other side are non-aggressive giant frogs, alongside a cave entrance. Go through it and you will find yourself in an area with a huge pit in front of you, with shimmering light creatures flying around over it. Venture along the path in the east direction to find Juna.
When you talk to Juna, she will impart you knowledge about Guthix and Its sacred tears, which she now guards from unworthy adventurers to maintain balance. Although, being alone for ages, she yearns for some company every now and then.
She's willing to let you into the cave for a little while to gather some of the tears of Guthix, but first, she would like to hear a story from you. Tell her a story about your adventures around RuneScape and you will obtain access to the cave for a very short time. To collect the tears, you will need a stone bowl which needs to be crafted from a special rock found only across the nearby, giant chasm.
Spread across the chasm, are entities called light creatures. These ancient creatures ride alongside the gem casting beams of their own colour, hence you require a sapphire lantern in order to attract the creatures. To make a sapphire lantern, use a cut sapphire on a bullseye lantern to swap the lens with the gem.
Light your lantern with the tinderbox and use it on one of the light creatures, which will transport you over to the rocks.

Required for completingEdit
