Fist Of Guthix

Recommended Posts

A number of Guthix druids have discovered an unexplored cave under the lower Wilderness, just north of Varrock. Inside is a new, one-on-one, tactical PvP combat minigame, available to both members and free players!

 

The cave appears to have been left undisturbed since the time of the god wars, guarded over the years by Fiara, a giant earwig and protector of something called the Fist of Guthix. Great powers emanate from this 'Fist' and the druids have managed to convince Fiara to allow them to gather charges from it. Being light on numbers, they need others to help them, which is where you come in!

 

In the spirit of Guthix, Fiara has introduced a 'balance' to this minigame. For each adventurer looking to absorb the power of the fist, there is another trying to chop, range or cast spells at them!

 

You and another adventurer must each take a turn being the hunted or the hunter. The hunted's task is to survive as long as possible, storing charges in a stone of power as the time counts down, while the hunter simply has to defeat the hunted in as quick a time as possible!

 

The energy of this mysterious area has quite an impact on those who attempt to absorb the power from the Fist of Guthix. Even the mightiest of warriors will find themselves severely weakened as they avoid the hunter, making it incredibly difficult to survive for long. The cave does offer some help in the form of places to hide, but will this be enough?

 

After both you and your opponent have had a chance to be the hunted, victory is assigned to those who stored the most charges in their stone of power. Fist of Guthix tokens will then be given out, based on how well you did, with which you can purchase a wide variety of rewards, including magical gloves to help you boost your XP, spiked shields and many more.

 

Fist of Guthix is available to play on ALL free and members worlds. There is a list of recommended worlds on the Themed Worlds Knowledge Base page.

 

We have also put a cap on the number of players who can play Fist of Guthix on any world at any time, which is set at 250 players. This will maximise your enjoyment of Fist of Guthix and minimise any conflict from other ongoing matches!

 

Summary

 

Where to start Fist of Guthix:

 

North of Varrock, in the lower reaches of the Wilderness.

In other news...

 

Hunter pet variations have been added to many places in RuneScape. Monkeys, squirrels, raccoons and geckos can now be found in several different shapes, colours and sizes, so get hunting!

 

The Party Room chest has been changed to better reflect the value of the items that are in it. It now checks the items against the Grand Exchange market price, so you should find a more accurate drop party value in banks or the Party Room.

 

Having looked at feedback on the Forums, we have changed the ibis, granite crab and granite lobster so that they give a small amount of Fishing experience when catching fish - a nice little bonus, we think you'll find!

 

A few graphical issues popped up last week: a pier in Neitiznot disappeared and a small hole opened up on Karamja! Guthix has restored the balance and these have been repaired.

 

Finally, a change has been made to the Culinaromancer's chest and the gnome ingredients shop at the Grand Tree. Item prices in these shops should be more attractive.

Sounds like a wierd game. Ill have to try it I guess =]

 

Also, good they fixed other things :aware:

 

"It will be hard to come out on top armed only with your fists, so make sure you bring a weapon of some sort! Any missile ammunition you use will be replaced when you leave the minigame and runes will be supplied for your use, though, so don't worry about their cost."

 

:) Holy... D bow with dragon arrows anyone..?

Don't go for world 44, waste of loading time ;o

 

Sorry, the RuneScape download server is currently full.

The maximum number of people are already downloading the RuneScape client from this world at the moment. Try going back to the world select page and choosing a different world.

 

Edit: im online to w124 ;D

"It will be hard to come out on top armed only with your fists, so make sure you bring a weapon of some sort! Any missile ammunition you use will be replaced when you leave the minigame and runes will be supplied for your use, though, so don't worry about their cost."

Where does it say that?

Okay, why would you use pure essence instead of rune essence for water, air and earth runes? (Read the article on the gloves).

 

 

Anyway, looks like a cool update! I'm gonna try ancient magicks there! :aware: For free!!!! :P

The Wizard (g) robes will crash in cash, because the new battlerobes cover for deaths, or make your attacks more effective.

Also they do give more bonuses.

But they don't look shmexy :aware:
