Hopespear's Will concept art.
Hopespear's Will is a miniquest available after completing the Land of the Goblins quest.
- You will need at least level 40 Prayer to perform Hopespear's task; otherwise he will say "Me have favour to ask you, but me not think you holy enough yet."
- Head to the cave entrance located just east of the Fishing Guild's entrance. Enter the cave and walk north, then west until you find two goblin guards guarding the entrance to the temple.
- Drink one dose of the goblin potion and enter the temple. Do not equip anything when in goblin form.
- Once in the temple, enter the crypt through the door to the north. Equip your ring of visibility and ghostspeak amulet.
- If you have received the ability to see into the Shadow Realm from Sliske you do not need a ring of visibility.
- If you have completed the Hard Morytania achievements you do not need a ghostspeak amulet.
You will see the ghost of Hopespear, the goblin prophet. Ask him why he is here, and he will tell you a story about a battle between the goblin tribes; he will describe his vision from the Big High War God about how the goblins must stop fighting. Then, once you tell him that you have been to Yu'biusk, he will ask you for a favour: to free the souls of the goblin priests. To do this you must complete a ritual which includes killing the goblin priests to retrieve their bones and bury their bones in Yu'biusk. However, to retrieve their bones, you must defeat the goblin priests without use of weapons or armour.
Remove any armour or weapons you have equipped, including the amulet of ghostspeak (or cramulet) and ring of visibility. The priests can be slain in any order and are all in the same room that Hopespear is in - just click the raised bits on the walls.
Pick up the bones after you kill each goblin.
- The first foe is Snothead. Go to the first grave to the left and say the name of the prophet.
- The second foe is Snailfeet. Go to the first grave to the right and say the name of the prophet.
- The third foe is Mosschin. Go to the second grave on the left and say the name of the prophet.
- The fourth foe is Redeyes. Go to the second grave on the right and say the name of the prophet.
- The fifth foe is Strongbones. Go to the grave at the far end of the room and say the name of the prophet.
- Legacy Mode is recommended as you cannot use any kind of abilities against the goblin priests.
- If you continually aren't able to get Snothead to drop his bone, talk to Hopespear to make sure that you told him that you have been to Yu'biusk.
- You may use prayer during the battles.
- You may not use Summoning familiars.
- Dreadnips are allowed during the battles, and can significantly speed them up.
- You do not have to defeat all the priests in one trip. You can leave the crypt to restock and continue where you left off, but you will need another dose of transformation potion.
- If you are wearing the cramulet, or ghostly robes, the priests will start their normal dialogue, and if a dreadnip finishes off the priest while speaking he will drop normal bones, not the bones you're looking for.
- If you log out in the temple, you will appear outside, and will need another potion dose to enter again.
Once you have all of the bones, you can teleport out of the crypt. If you exit through the door, you will appear outside of the goblin temple, in the cave. You may bank if you wish. Find a fairy ring and enter code BLQ to be transported to Yu'biusk. You may bury the bones anywhere in Yu'biusk. Each bone buried will give you the corresponding amount of Prayer experience (see chart above). Attempting to bury the bones in the region of Yu'biusk (Bandos' arena) you accessed during The Mighty Fall does not work.
Congratulations, miniquest complete!
- 13,750 experience total from burying all 5 sets of bones (unaffected by any bonus experience).
Hopespear's Will is not currently required for any quests or miniquests.
Completion of this miniquest is required for the achievement with the same name which is a requirement for the completionist cape and master quest cape.
This information has been compiled as part of the update history project. Some updates may not be included - see here for how to help out!
- patch 15 June 2015 (Update):
- It is now possible to pick up goblin priest bones.
- When talking to one of the goblins in the temple they will say "Me hear ghosts in the temple crypt! No one sees it, but sometimes they hear it. 'Wooo... Wooo... ' It say." In which your player can respond "Who ya gonna call?" which is a reference to the 1984 film Ghostbusters.
