Read on to find out more!
The Final Four Clans
You must complete Plague's End[help] to enter Prifddinas.
The elf city is now fully grown, and all of its districts are available for your use:
|Hefin District||Meilyr District|
|Amlodd District||Crwys District|
|Ithell District||Cadarn District|
|Iorwerth District||Trahaearn District|
|Tower of Voices||Max Guild|
Voice of Seren bonuses now apply to two clans at once, meaning more choice of boosted training opportunities.
Below are highlights of what's available from each clan. Visit the wiki[help] for full details of what Prifddinas has to offer.
Clan Amlodd - Divination and Summoning
- Shadow creatures: kill these for a chance to get shadow cores. These can be converted at the nearby light rift into light cores, which are an ingredient for creating light creature pouches.
- Light creature familiar: grants a passive chance to instantly convert harvested memories outside of Prifddinas. Its special move grants a six-minute 'enlightened' buff, which gives you better rewards on the Hefin Agility Course, increases the instant memory conversion chance, and grants a chance for double blue tears in Tears of Guthix. Finally, it can teleport you to Tears of Guthix or to tormented demons.
- Impling collector: Daffyd the impling collector wants you to collect one of each type of implng, in exchange for cosmetic 'thinker's' robes, a hearty chunk of Hunter XP and a switchable choice of increased XP or increased loot when catching implings.
- Lord Amlodd: not just a spinner of tall tales, he can also trade pouches for a portion of their spirit shard cost, much like Bogrog.
Clan Ithell - Construction and Crafting
- Crystal singing: now fully unlocked, the art of crystal singing lets you create crystal tools with special skilling effects, consumable teleport items, and attuned crystal weapons - level 80 degrade-to-dust weapons, with a chance to do increased damage that increases with your Agility level.
- Crystal hatchet and pickaxe: Lady Ithell can upgrade the dragon hatchet and pickaxe to crystal variants, even if they're stored in your tool belt. She can convert the Imcando or gilded tools to crystal varieties, but you will lose any additional benefits and will not be refunded the materials used to create them.
- Harmonium harps: playing these gives you Crafting XP and non-tradeable harmonic dust, which is important for crystal singing.
- Mining: you can mine soft clay, ready to be used for crafting, or crystal-flecked sandstone, needed to make crystal flasks.
- Glasswork: a crystal glass machine allows you to make the crystal glass needed for crystal flasks. It also performs all functions of the machine in Oog'log.
Clan Hefin - Agility and Prayer
- Serenity posts: hop onto these to earn up to 20,000 Agility XP per day. Match the stances demonstrated by Lady Hefin for the best XP rate.
- Agility course: complete laps while looking out for randomly spawning shortcuts and building up Velocity - which lets you skip an obstacle when at 100%. Each lap also gives you the chance to earn rewards, such as a cosmetic outfit, four emotes, lore book pages, and useful Elf City skilling items.
- Corrupted Seren Stone: purchase cleansing crystals from a Hefin monk at the cathedral and click on the corrupted Seren Stone at the centre to cleanse it. It's a low-intensity way to train Prayer if you're looking to relax and chat.
Clan Meilyr - Dungeoneering and Herblore
- Two resource dungeons: accessible at 95 and 115 Dungeoneering, these contain various skilling locations, NPCs offering useful services, and enemies to fight.
- Gorajo cards: the 95 dungeon contains a gorajo NPC, who will give you cards reminiscent of those seen in Sinkholes, which will give you a range of benefits while dungeoneering in Daemonheim.
- Divine locations: these spawn at random in the 95 dungeon.
- Motherlode Maw: found in the 115 resource dungeon, this requires at least 95 in all skills, and grants daily rewards useful for those aspiring to gain their completionist capes.
- Edimmu: these lurk in the 115 resource dungeon and can only be killed while on a slayer assignment for them, available from Duradel, Kuradal or Morvran. They can drop a new follower pet, and blood shards, which can be used to upgrade the amulet of fury or certain dungeoneering reward necklaces. As an Early Bird Bonus, you'll be twice as likely to get edimmu as a slayer assignment for the next two weeks!
- Harmony pillars: new farming patches, which allow you to grow harmony moss - an important ingredient in perfect potions. Pillars are planted with seeds available from a nearby NPC or on the Grand Exchange, and attuned to a random skill. As you earn XP in that skill, the moss on the pillar grows.
- Perfect juju potions: made by combining juju potions with harmony moss, these have a range of new skill-specific effects.
- Combination potions: with crystal flasks in your inventory, many high-level and utility potions can now be combined to create six-dose potions, granting the effects of both. Recipes for these must be unlocked, some by simply visiting the herblore shop in the Meilyr district and paying a sum of coin, and others by finding recipes in Daemonheim first.
There's loads more to do in each district than is listed above: lore drops to find, memoriam crystals to uncover, secret titles to unlock...
The best way to appreciate Prifddinas is to get stuck in - explore every nook and cranny, and discover for yourself what the elf city has to offer.
As we've said before, this is the year's biggest update, and you have been the driving force throughout its development. Get to know the city, think about what you like - and what you're less keen on - and let us know on the forums.
