Memorial to Guthix is a Divination Distraction and Diversion revolving around the late god Guthix. The memorial site is located in the Piscatoris Hunter area, just north of the ferrets and Nickolaus's camp and just south of the Phoenix Lair and the Airut. Players can teleport directly to the shrine through the use of memory strands, Sixth-Age circuit, or a charged engram.

The Memorial to Guthix can also be reached by teleporting to the Eagles' Peak lodestone and travelling north-west.

While training Divination outside of Dungeoneering, memory strands can be collected and stored in the currency pouch. The strands are stored automatically after adding the strands to the currency pouch for the first time. These strands can be combined with engrams, which can be found all around Gielinor to create echoes. Echoes can be placed in the temple to unlock buffs, gain Divination experience, and reveal lore about Guthix's life on Gielinor.

Completing the set of echoes once is a requirement for the completionist cape and the master quest cape. Unlocking the ability to activate four buffs at once by prestiging three times is a requirement for the trimmed completionist cape.

Below the pool at the Memorial to Guthix, players with at least level 70 Divination can access the Hall of Memories.

Tutorial[edit | edit source]

The tutorial can be started by talking to Orla Fairweather, standing directly by the entrance of the memorial site, who explains about the site and its function. The following steps are required to complete the tutorial:

  1. Talk to Orla Fairweather. She gives 80 memory strands and a Naragi engram.
  2. Charge the engram (check the orb and click through the option) with 500 pale energy and return to Orla.
  3. Add the echo to one of the empty plinths.
  4. Interact with the echo and return to Orla.
  5. Activate the Harmony of Naragun buff at the fountain of energy.
  6. Return to Orla once more.

Completing the tutorial grants the ability to collect engrams and catch an unlimited number of chronicle fragments and elder chronicles.

Engrams[edit | edit source]

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.

Locations and buffs[edit | edit source]

Charging[edit | edit source]

To charge an engram, click it to "check" it, and follow the dialogue.

The following table lists the number of strands and the number and type of energy required to charge each engram at each of the prestige levels. Energies are tradeable and can be purchased, so the level required to gather them is not needed. A free way to gather the energy required, if a player is willing to take some risks, is to gather cursed energy and transmute it into what is needed. After prestige 3, the amount of energy and number of strands required stays the same.

Benefits[edit | edit source]

A completed memorial after one prestige.

Upon unlocking echoes, players gain 17,192 Divination experience (at level 99) for each and unlock one of 12 buffs. They're able to activate one and change it with the weekly reset initially, upon adding an echo for the first time, or upon rising up in prestige.

Prestige Number of bonus or passive effects
After charging first engram 1
1 2
2 3
3+ 4
3+, with bonus from Hall of Memories 5 [1]

Prestiging[edit | edit source]

After adding all echoes, players can reset their progress by right clicking the fountain of energy and selecting prestige, rising up in prestige, and starting over. By doing this, they can activate progressively more buffs. A player may only have up to 5 buffs active at once even if they continue to prestige past the fourth prestige. All the buffs remain unlocked even after the player has reset their progress; any buffs active at the time of prestige will remain active. All engrams must be re-obtained from their hiding places; they are not returned to the inventory or bank.

Benefit Description
Harmony of Naragun Guthixian butterflies will spawn instead of chronicles. This does not affect elder chronicles.
Time-worn Memories The experience from converting memories inside Daemonheim is quadrupled.
Decree of Mortality Checking Hunting traps has a chance to yield Memory Shards. Memory shards can be transmuted into Divine energy products.
Guardian of Life Planting seeds has a chance to yield Memory Shards. Memory shards can be transmuted into Divine energy products.
Ethereal Connection The duration of Divination springs is increased. [a 1]
Shared Knowledge Divine locations will grant 125% experience but yield no items.
Abyssal Transit Chronicles can now be offered from the inventory. This also affects elder chronicles. Upon completion of The World Wakes, experience is gained as if they were turned in at the Guthix cave or to May Stormbrewer or Eilwynn.

  1. ^ In combination with the divination cape, the duration is increased further to a total of 40 seconds.

Rewards[edit | edit source]

Each prestige boosts the rate at which players can acquire memory strands and unlocks increasingly ornate butterfly wing overrides. The boost to strands caps at 5 prestige cycles. Players also unlock echo wings overrides: glowing, lustrous, and incandescent for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prestiges, respectively.

After the 1st prestige, players may give extra memory strands to Orla Fairweather in batches of 1,000 for the Divination experience equivalent to a medium experience lamp. In addition, the teleport option for memory strands and charged engrams will teleport the player directly to the butterfly statue instead of outside the memorial entrance.

Players wanting to achieve the most experience per memory strand should continue to prestige rather than turning in extra memory strands for experience. Doing so will cost the player the same amounts of energies and strands as third prestige but give approximately 45,000 more experience (at level 99) than a player would receive by turning in 10,000 memory strands or a total of almost 3 times as much experience per memory strand gathered. This method will give more experience in less time at the cost of the energies and a few minutes gathering engrams.

After completing the distraction and diversion for the first time, Orla will reward the player with 1,000 memory strands. Additionally, 1,000 can be claimed after reaching level 99 in Divination, another 1,000 after reaching virtual level 120, and the final 1,000 after reaching 200,000,000 Divination experience, adding up to a total of 4,000 memory strands. All available rewards are claimed at once.
