6-May-2014 - Elder Divination

Recommended Posts

Elder Divination

 

Elder Divination is here: a batch of high-level Divination content following on from Fate of the Gods. Re-enter the Elder Halls and train at a new wisp colony, from level 75 all the way up to 99. Create new items, and summon the player-voted nightmare muspah familiar.

 

There are some cool updates separate from the quest too: we've made collecting chronicles much more rewarding, and you can transmute unwanted summoning charms to ones more useful to you.

 

Read on for more information, or log into RuneScape now and get stuck in!

 

Scry Hard

 

Once you've completed Fate of the Gods, use the World Gate south of the Eagles' Peak lodestone to return to Freneskae. Travel back across the dangerous landscape, down through Zaros's Sanctum and deep into the Elder Halls. Alternatively, use the new shortcut option on the World Gate to jump right to the Elder Halls themselves.

There, you'll find a new wisp colony, which is ideal for training from 75 all the way up to 99. No need to bring the Measure - once the quest is complete, the wisps will be permanently visible. Using the elder energy harvested there, you'll weave powerful portents, signs, locations, and summoning pouches:

 

Portents of degradation automatically heal you and damage your opponent when you're damaged to under half life - they can also be made into more powerful 'attuned' varieties. Portents and signs of death will return a percentage of your life points upon death, preventing your demise and damaging your opponent for a corresponding amount. Portents and signs of life revive you with more health, without the damage to your enemy. Note that life and death items share the same one-hour cooldown.

 

There's a new type of divine location to make, too: the divine simulacrum. It can be woven from 75 Divination up, is harvestable at 65 Divination, and grants energy appropriate to your level.

 

Fresh from a recent Power to the Players poll comes the nightmare muspah familiar. This beast of burden can only hold memories and energy, but has a better capacity than a pack yak. If you have one with you while you're converting at a rift, it'll automatically empty and fill its inventory, and it gives a small, passive boost to the spawn rate of enriched memories. Nightmare muspah pouches are made using elder energy in the place of spirit shards, as well as elder charms and muspah spines - dropped only by muspah killed on Freneskae.

 

You'll also uncover ten snippets of ancient lore from elder chronicles, which also grant you XP in any skill of your choice when handed in at the divination camp or at the Guthixian shrine (which still gives its XP boost).

 

Full details of how the above items work can be found in the Divination Skill Advance Guide in game, or on the wiki.

 

There are new divine implings to be caught around Gielinor and in Impetuous Impulses. They require 79 Hunter to catch, and yield energy, portents, signs, and - if you're lucky - completed muspah summoning pouches.

 

Simply Divine

 

Even if you haven't completed the quest, today's update brings you some nifty new Divination features.

 

It's now possible to transmute summoning charms into other types. You'll need several lower-tier charms plus some divination energy to produce the charm of your choice. See the wiki for more information.

 

Chronicles have been reworked. You can gather more at once, they give far more XP than they used to, and their spawn rate has been greatly increased. Note that while you can now carry up to 30 at once, the spawn rate starts to decrease once you're holding more than ten, so it's a good idea to hand them in whenever you can.

 

Have Fun!

 

If you haven't already, set your sights on completing Fate of the Gods. It's a heck of an experience, and - with today's updates - it's never been more rewarding.

 

To cap it off, we're offering an Early Bird Bonus for the next two weeks: triple divine impling spawns, double Hunter XP and energy from catching divine implings, and double Divination XP and energy when gathering from divine simulacrums.

 

Enjoy, and let us know what you think over on the forums.

So this new wisp colony is supposed to be the best for training all the way from 75 to 99. I'm not sure what I think about that. Something I liked about divination was that you changed training places so often. Now - if Jagex' claim that this is indeed the best place to train for those levels are right - four of the locations released not a year ago are rendered obsolete. 

 

Did Muspahs get their improved drop tables now, or did they only get this new summoning ingredient?

It's probably not going to supercede the current training spots.

Shame the requirement to the only new Divination content requires a GM quest to access, but I guess it's to be expected.

But I'm really interested in the new portants and stuff. Are they better or worse than the current ones?

“Do you have any regrets?”

“I don’t. It seems surprising, I know, but I wouldn’t change a thing. This is how it was meant to be.”

“Huh, you never really notice how lovely the day is until you realize you’ll never see it again.”

“Mmmhmm.”

Is the new gear actually usable if you haven't completed Fate of the Gods? The death portent seems like it'd be handy, degradation not as much.

Overall this update to me is: eh

 

Some of the new portents etc seem like they may have some use, but like how used are the existing ones? Most of them are too much faff to bother with.

 

The familiar is of course an utter waste - a wonderful bob to store items you don't need to take anywhere and all for the low low cost of killing monsters with kinda sucky drops and using a div colony with sucky xp!

 

The colony itself the xp is kinda sucky.

 

And the elder lore stuff? Pita to 'unlock' especially since all 10 are already on the wiki and its not exactly thirlling new lore - just an in-game reiteration of podcast/qa facts that Jas = progression, Ful = creation, Wen = destruction, Bik = alteration and Mah = imagination.

Gathering Incandescent energy from the Divine Simulacrum is worth 450 Divination XP, currently doubled due to the early bird bonus. Normally that'd be worth 225 XP.

 

You can harvest every 2 ticks, and it's 4 points from your daily limit.

 

Makes it max 675k Divination XP/h. Better than Yews, or?

 

 

EDIT: Radiant energy is 190XP, Luminous energy is 210XP. So 570k - 675k XP/h

It's actually double my current figures due to early bird bonus, so with bonus xp it's 2.6M XP/h :P

Something in the updating of preset inventories has completely ruined it.

Nice one, Jagex.

New Beast of Burden makes training more afk and slightly more xp/hr -> new divine location makes conventional training a waste of time -> don't use the beast of burden because not training conventionally.

Silly me.

Here I thought that when they said, "A new way to train Divination", I actually thought they meant a new way.

I didn't think they meant a new fishing hole in the ground that is only visible after a quest.

Charming Imp can also collect elder charms.

 

Its on the chronicle fragment jagex wiki page.

 

However, you have to collect 100 chronicles in-game to unlock them in-game and clear the comp trim req.

 

Side-bar I got Timbo to respond to me on twitter when I gave shall we say 'sassy' feedback about the charm transmuting pointing out it turned potential summ xp into less potential summ xp all for the cost of more time used.
