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.

Official descriptionEdit

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...?

Light at the End...Edit

To start, enter the Lumbridge Swamp Caves in the western part of the swamp; you may need to attach a rope to climb into the caves, if you haven't done so already.

Wear a spiny helmet for protection against the wall beasts, and a covered light source to prevent gases in the caves from exploding on you, causing heavy and rapid damage. Bringing both of these items significantly reduces the likelihood of death in the dungeon.

Keep heading south-east from the cave entrance until you find a small stream, where you must use a stepping stone to cross over. If you fail the stepping stone shortcut and have a candle lantern, it will be smashed into a few broken glasses, even if it wasn't lit.

On the other side are non-aggressive giant frogs, alongside another cave entrance. Go through it and you will find yourself in an area with a huge pit in front of you, with countless, shimmering light creatures flying over it. Venture along the east path to find Juna.

AloneEdit

When you talk to Juna, she will impart you knowledge about Guthix and His 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.

Luminous BeingsEdit

Mining magic stone

Mining the magic stone.

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.

Use your pickaxe to get a magic stone and craft it into a stone bowl using a chisel. Jump down the cliff to the east and head back to Juna. Give the bowl to her, and your quest is complete.

TriviaEdit

  • In Lores and Histories, it is revealed that Zanik is the first to impress Juna by "flying" over the light creatures with a sapphire lantern. This causes Juna to state that future visitors will need to perform the same act.
