Tears of Guthix

A player participating in the Tears of Guthix minigame.

Tears of Guthix is a short minigame, playable once a week. To participate, players must have completed Tears of Guthix and earned at least 100,000 total experience or one quest point since they last participated (unless they have never played before). Tears of Guthix resets weekly at Wednesday 00:00 UTC.

Use the Quest Journal of the interface and select Tears of Guthix to find out how many days and how many quest points or experience points are needed before being allowed to collect tears. By talking to Juna, it is possible to toggle alerts upon logging in whenever you are eligible to play this minigame again.

Playing the gameEdit

Warning: Due to the nature of Tears of Guthix rewarding experience in your lowest skill, it is advised that combat and skill pures do not play this minigame.

To play the minigame, a player must go to the Lumbridge Swamp Caves and tell a story to the snake Juna who is the guardian of the Guthix tears. The easiest way to reach her is via teleporting to the caves with a games necklace. Then, collect the blue tears flowing fro​m a wall, while avoiding collecting the green tears, as these decrease your overall tear count. The locations of the tears changes randomly.

Both hands must be free in order to hold the bowl (no weapon or shield).

The game relies heavily on your Quest Points. The more Quest points you have the longer you can collect tears and therefore the more experience you get.


Player and Juna

After the minigame is complete, the player receives experience based on the number of tears collected to their lowest skill. If the player has multiple skills at the same level, the reward will go to the skill with the least experience. If both skills have the same amount of experience, it will go to the first listed one. For example, if both Runecrafting and Hunter are 0xp, the experience will go to Runecrafting.

The amount of experience per tear increases as the player's level increases (for example: 10xp is given per tear if the lowest level is 1, and 26.6xp is given per tear if your lowest level is 20), until they reach level 30. Once level 30 is reached, the player receives 60 experience for each tear.

The Hard Lumbridge Diary reward gives 10% more experience.
