Engram

Engrams are items used in the Memorial to Guthix Distraction and Diversion. An engram is a stone-like charm that contains an echo (recording) of a past event involving the late god Guthix. Twelve different engrams can be found scattered across Gielinor that can be collected after completing Orla Fairweather's tutorial at the memorial. Each time an engram is picked up, a Guthixian butterfly will appear, granting experience in a player's lowest skill when caught. This will only happen the first time an engram is picked up during each prestige; players cannot pick up and destroy engrams to continuously spawn Guthixian butterflies.

Each engram must be charged with divine energy and memory strands before being added to the pool at the memorial. The amount and type of energy needed, along with the number of memory strands required, can be checked using the Check action of an uncharged engram.

Once a charged engram is added to the pool of energy, the echo contained within can be displayed on one of the plinth's inside the memorial and its benefit can be activated at the fountain of energy at the west end of the pool.

Update history[edit | edit source]

The update history project is a work-in-progress – not all updates to this topic may be covered below. See here for how to help out!
  • patch 18 March 2020 (Update):
    • The cost for charging engrams will now correctly cap after prestiging three times.
  • patch 18 November 2019 (Update):
    • Fixed an issue allowing you to collect additional engrams without first prestiging.
  • patch 11 November 2019 (Update):
    • Fixed an issue that prevented you from being able to reclaim an engram after destroying it from the bank.
  • patch 16 January 2017 (Update):
    • An engram's hints have been altered to refer to 'The Thing' rather than 'The Beast'.
    • Engrams now have a teleport option to the Memorial to Guthix.
  • update 9 January 2017 (Update):
    • Memorial to Guthix added to game, adding 12 engrams - items found around the world which will display key memories from the life of Guthix, after he had ascended to godhood.
      • Speak to Orla Fairweather at the site, who'll set you on the path to hunting down the engrams. Charge them, then return them to the memorial to activate echo plinths, which give you Divination XP and oodles of Guthixian lore - showing a side of Guthix that you've never seen before - plus some awesome Divination-focused rewards.
      • There are a range of persistent buffs and bonuses available from activating the engrams. These include a removed cap on chronicles, increased XP from divine locations, chronicle fragments replaced with Guthixian butterflies, and more. You can have one of these active at a time to begin with, and can switch between them once a week (after the Wednesday reset) at the memorial site's fountain.
      • Collect all 12 engrams and you can reset the memorial and start again. This prestige mechanic rewards you with a chunk of Divination XP, and unlocks the ability to have an additional reward active (4 maximum) and a butterfly wing cape override with an increasingly elaborate appearance.
