Recent Updates






Hello, welcome to my star hunting guide. After you read through this, please contribute what you can. Note I am trying to get a screenshot of ALL star locations, so any and all help is greatly appreciated. Any pictures, methods, or other little tidbits help me out a lot more than you think. And of course, you will be credited. :D



Despite the best efforts of scientists and philosophers, RuneScape frequently refuses to obey what should be sensible laws of science. With all of that crazy magic flying around, though, this isn't an especially surprising state of affairs, and in general the scientists and philosophers just sit in their libraries and pretend it's not happening. Unfortunately, it's rather hard to ignore a massive rock landing in your backyard concealing a sprite who has fallen from the sky.



As RuneScape enters a new area of its particular universe, it also enters a belt of these 'stars', which are actually home to the star sprites. They don't enjoy being knocked out of the sky by roving planets, though, and will handsomely reward anyone who can free them from their damaged home so they can find a new one and get back up into the great beyond.

You should post some of the basic things to make it more complete, like rewards, mining level requirements, etc.

Thanks for the reminder. I was at a swim meet for the past few days so I couldn't get the time to work on this, but I'll start it soon.

very impressive.



The only thign I would add would be a screenshot the the exact location, and not just the worldmap view.

Dungeoneering isn't a skill.
I'm faster than bots at Sorceress Garden.

I was considering doing that. But it was an overload of work. I'll see if I can get some help with it though, if anyone wants to assist me I'd be willing to.

Well done on a pretty well written guide.



A few tips: Add some pictures of poeple mining a star, what a tubby looks like, pics of the sizes of stars and info on each size including how long it should take to mine, req level etc...



Also you have some spots that I don't think stars land at, but that might be me just not being at one there.

I have personally been to every star I've listed with the exception of:



-Daeyalt

-BH

-Zammy Mage

-Skeleton

-Haunted Mine



The middle three I hear called out a lot, it's just chance that I haven't been there. The other two I have 4+ sources for each that stars can land there. I'm guessing it's just rare, so I'll leave it in.



I have the first two pics you recommended.



Considering the size info. I guess I could do it, but there's so much variation (number of people, etc.)

Wilderness

For all of these (except BH), bring a Forthrinity Bracelet, Food, Antis, armor, and a tele. Games necklace, Ardy Teleports

Bounty Hunter-Games Necklace

Hobgoblin Mines-Games Necklace (BH)

Pirate Mines-Lever

Runite Mines-Ice Plateau Tele/Obelisk (Fastest: Games Necklace Clan Wars and run south)

Steel/Zammy Mage Mines-Glory

Skeleton Mines-Glory

I have been star hunting for a while now (sometimes with star find, great but crowded cc) and I found a mistake: for the wilderness locations, you can get a star at the Mage Arena bank (right outside the shack with the spider webs and lever). There are many revenant attacks there though, so it's pretty dangerous. 10/10, though :twss: !!! Great guide!!
Can't wait till I FINALLY find some God Wars Dungeon partners >.>

Merry Christmas Eve / Christmas everyone! :)

Maybe make a few pics of a star with over 15 people at it and a star with only you and few others at it?



P.S. I just went to a star in wildy, it dropped at BH bank, so that one is right.

Not sure what you mean with the pics. Like 1 pic of a star piled with people and the other with only a few? What would that show?
