How to Start
Talk to Linza at the smithy in Burthorpe
You will need Level 60 in Herblore, Agility, Crafting and Smithing. You will also need to have completed the quest Missing Presumed Death.
Extra Requirement - during Mega May you must also complete Meg's Case "Robber From the Darkness Part 7". Please note that after Mega May has ended, Kindred Spirits will still be accessible without this extra requirement.
First up you'll receive large chunks of XP in Crafting, Smithing, Herblore and Agility. You will also get access to a brand new Barrows wight for the Barrows mini-game. Defeat this undead horror and you will have the chance to loot their brand new tier 80 armour set from the Barrows chest.
As well as this, the quest is full of lore-heavy rewards await you as this quest cuts right to the heart of the Barrows Brothers themselves. Discover more than ever about who these undead warriors were in life, as well as their personal struggles. You'll also uncover more of Sliske's schemes as the build up to the endgame itself really kicks into gear.
Void Knights' Outpost Rework
Be sure to visit the Void Knight Outpost in the glory of the NXT client. The atmosphere and architecture have both had a fantastic overhaul and the mood is now suitably dark and stormy. After all, every day's a rainy day for a Void Knight, beating back the slathering hordes…
Combine your visit with the upcoming minigame-focussed May Weekend (starting Friday 27th May at 12:00 game time) and get double points on Pest Control and Conquest until Monday 30th May at 12:00 game time.
