The Light Within is here, along with more on-screen action bars. It's a great day for Ironman players, too, with Group Bossing and Completionist Cape (including Trimmed) all fully enabled.

Top that off with some sweet new walk overrides in Solomon's Store and it's a heck of a week of content.

Read on to find out more!

The Light Within

How to Start
Speak to Eluned in Prifddinas
Requirements
You must be a RuneScape member
Plague's End
Fate of the Gods
Meeting History
The World Wakes
The Temple at Senntisten
80 Agility
80 Crafting
80 Divination
80 Herblore
80 Prayer
80 Woodcutting

The Light Within's sprawling story will see you helping the elven elders to find and reunite the Seren Shards – the scattered remnants left when the goddess sacrificed herself to save her faithful.

Travel across Gielinor and beyond – to the elven homeworld of Tarddiad. Expect fiendish puzzles, challenging combat and some truly tough choices.

Whatever the outcome, your part in these events will be pivotal in the ongoing saga of Gielinor's Sixth Age.

Rewards

Completing this epic adventure unlocks some truly game-changing rewards: new prayers and spells which make a dedicated support role possible in endgame combat content, and high-level skilling incentives that are nigh on vital.

Note that these are part of the Ancient curses and spellbook.

Spells

Spell Level Description
Opal Aurora 75 Direct damage spell. Also restores lifespan on prisms.

Prism of Restoration 76 Places a prism which heals nearby familiars and restores their special attack energy, and gives a chance to not use scrolls on familiar special ability use.

Sapphire Aurora 77 Direct damage spell. Also overcharges prisms, adding useful effects on their next tick.

Intercept 77 Redirects damage taken by the targeted player over the next three seconds to the caster, and reduces the damage to 95% of the original hit.

Emerald Aurora 79 Direct damage spell. Also applies a stacking 1% damage reduction buff to the caster. Stacks up to 5%, and with other damage reduction methods.

Prism of Salvation 80 Places a prism which players can click to teleport near to, as long as there's a clear path between.

Ruby Aurora 81 Direct damage spell. Also has a chance to apply a 1% damage buff to nearby allies. Stacks up 3%.

Prism of Loyalty 82 Places a prism into which players can funnel life points. Anyone doing so will take damage, and the prism will automatically heal nearby players with 75% or lower life points.

Shield Dome 84 Deploys a static dome that allies can stand within to reduce incoming damage by 50%. Domes cannot be layered on top of eachother, and new shield domes affecting a player within 2 minutes have diminishing returns.

Prism of Dowsing 86 Places a prism which attracts wisps to it and increases the chance of drawing enriched wisps. All nearby players can benefit from this.

Crystallise 88 When cast on mining, fishing or woodcutting spots - or full box traps - will cause the resource to persist for 30 seconds, yield no resources and give increased XP. Other players may still deplete the resource, but Crystallise will carry on when the resource is back.

Rapid Growth 88 Skips a tree, fruit tree or herb patch forward a growth stage. Usable once per day on each eligible farming location.

Crystal Mask 90 Gives +15% to pickpocketing chance and gives a chance to avoid damage and stun on failure.

Spellbook Swap 96 Identical to the Lunar version.

Prayers

Prayer Level Description
Chronicle Absorption 75 Automatically absorbs chronicles while training divination, granting Hunter and Divination XP.

Light Form 80 Doubles the chance of Seren-aligned spell effects occurring when using abilities.

Dark Form 80 Doubles the chance of Zaros-aligned spell effects occurring when using abilities.

Soul Link 88 Equally shares all damage and healing with another player also using this effect.
Teamwork Protection 89 Gives 5% damage reduction and 1% damage reflection for all nearby players who have the same prayer active. Stacks up to 5 times for a total of 25% reduction and 5% reflection. Note that the prayer only affects other players, so you'll need 6 players using it to get the full effect.

Superheat Form 91 Automatically burns logs and smelts ore into bars for XP.
Fortitude 94 Boosts Defence by 10%, life points by 100, doubles regeneration and allows regeneration in combat.
All of this is yours to enjoy with the wondrous new capabilities you'll unlock, but it doesn't stop there.

You'll also get to return to Tarddiad, where you can earn stunning hybrid-style crystal armour sets in two forms: level 70 tradeable, and level 80 untradeable.

And of course, there'll be a healthy helping of XP in a range of skills as soon as you complete the quest.

Additional Action Bars

Ever wanted to have multiple, hot-key enabled action bars open on your RuneScape HUD? The Ninjas have made it so.

Head to the Settings interface to enable up to four additional on-screen action bars, and drag them freely around the screen and resize them as you wish, finding your perfect set-up.

Ironman | Group Bossing & Completionist Requirements

We've enabled a great deal of high-level content for Ironman players this week.

First Up, Ironmen players may now group with each other to access all bosses that use the boss instancing system. They may also create groups to access the Raid ‘Liberation of Mazcab’.

Lootshare has also been enabled to Ironman accounts - although it will only work on bosses.

Alongside these changes we’ve opened up a few areas in the game that were previously inaccessible to Ironman players. These include areas such as the Kalphite King's lair, Vorago’s borehole, Mobilising Armies and Barbarian Assault.

On top of this, we’ve also made it possible for Ironman players to earn the Completionist and Trimmed Completionist cape! To unlock those songs you previously couldn't access, simply attempt to enter or interact with the content in question.

Keep an eye out for broadcasts as Ironman players start making RuneScape history!

Enjoy!

This week sees the release of one of the most spectacular and rewarding quests yet released, plus a raft of new spells and prayers - and more. We hope you have a tremendous time with The Light Within – head over to the forums and let us know your thoughts.

Are they degradeable? T80 hybrid is going to be great. A higher tier Warpriest alternative. About how long does it take to kill these creatures (kills/hr)?

Supposedly these new creatures drop something new that lets you open a chest somewhere.

There is a chest in the house next to the chick that sells the armor.

 

T70 is degradeable. No idea about T80, not going to bother farming for that.

First quest I have done since I died of boredom trying to do Dimension of Disaster and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I thought the story was really good, Tarddiad was nicely designed and I really liked the new design of Seren. Some interesting things to take away from the quest though:

In real life MMO you don't get 99 smithing by making endless bronze daggers.

Quest wasn't too difficult to be honest. Even the Light Puzzle was doable. All you had to do was notice how they all relate and what happens when you try each of the mirrors.

Other than that, I could easily go with the flow =)!

How challenging is the combat compared to FoTG. I had much trouble with that due to certain physical limitations.
Back after a 5 year TIF hiatus. Please don't mind me too much.

112 level creatures that change fighting styles. You have to kill 25 of them.

Also just to note you do NOT need to kill 25 creatures.

You only HAVE to kill 1.

You are given the option of killing them for 2 crystals per death OR mining/wcing fragments that exchange 3:1 for crystals with an npc.

Or it appears you can skill past them instead? I appreciate that because I do quests for the story in them, not for difficult boss encounters.

Especially ones that make no sense to have in a quest. Nomad...

Well you do have the option to skill but it takes nearly an hour to gather 50 crystals like that ...

Does anyone know if the t80 crystal hybrid armor has offensive stats? This seems like a good option for DKs, TDs and KK over Warpriest.
