The process of burning a vyrewatch.

Beneath the mausoleum inside the Paterdomus temple is the Columbarium, a unique place where dead bodies were burnt and placed in containers. Those containers were sealed into the walls of the Columbarium. The chamber is now used to free the tortured souls from Vyre corpses. It can be reached by descending the stairway in the centre of the northern wall of the main room in the mausoleum, where the circle of monuments is (the room to the west of Drezel).

The fastest way to reach the Columbarium is only available after Missing, Presumed Death; The invitation box gained after quest completion can be clicked once to take you to the Empyrean Citadel and then again to take you directly south-west of the entrance to the mausoleum. Once in the mausoleum open the gate and climb down the stairway on the north wall. Another fast method if you do not have the above requirements is by using a ring of slaying to teleport to the Slayer Tower, and running to the Paterdomus temple or using fairy ring CKS which will bring you just southeast of the bridge near the trapdoor entrance to the temple.

During and after the Legacy of Seergaze quest, the player discovers a way to kill the members of the dreaded Vyrewatch. The player can collect the resulting Vyre corpses and free their souls by cremating the corpses in the funeral pyres at the Columbarium. A Columbarium key appears for each soul that is freed. The keys unlock various coffins in the walls, which contain item rewards. This functions in much the same way as the Shades of Mort'ton minigame.

The southern end of the Columbarium contains a lectern which keeps track of how many Vyre corpses the player has burned, up to a maximum of 500. For every 50 Vyre corpses that have been cremated, the power of the player's Ivandis flail, blisterwood weapons, and Sunspear increase.

Cremating vyre corpses after the quest allows the player to acquire Columbarium keys which unlock wooden alcoves in the Columbarium. These alcoves contain rewards, including some that are otherwise only obtainable through Treasure Trails. Using higher levelled logs grant more experience and using magic logs or higher will yield a shiny columbarium key, granting access to an improved loot table.

The first vyre cremated during the Legacy of Seergaze quest will award an ornate tomb key instead, used to obtain a blood talisman.

Experience tables[edit | edit source]

Burning corpses gives both Firemaking and Prayer experience, in addition to giving a columbarium key. Note that only pyre logs of teak or higher quality may be used to cremate vyre corpses.
