God Statues

Introduction

God Statues is a monthly Construction based Distraction & Diversion. In this D&D, you'll help Copernicus Glyph to build up to four statues each month at various sites around Gielinor. It is totally up to you which statue you build and where, but beware! Tempers in the area may flare if you happen to make a controversial choice! Once the choice of statue has been made, you'll follow Copernicus' expert directions to construct scaffolding around the statue. Once you've determined the correct arrangement, you'll be rewarded with Construction XP based on your current Construction level.

If you choose the appropriate statue to build in a given area, you'll have the opportunity to pray at the statue for a bit of Prayer XP. However, building a statue that ill fits the area will invoke attack from a fanatic. Defeat the fanatic and you'll earn a Slayer XP reward.

Requirements

In addition to being a RuneScape member, you must have done at least one of the following:

  • Completed Let Them Eat Pie
  • Completed at least 60 Achievements
  • Manually switched off tutorial mode

Locations

To start the D&D, you'll need to speak to Copernicus Glyph, who can be found at any of the following locations.

Map Location Information
Lumbridge This location is just to the northeast of the Lumbridge Castle and lodestone, just west of the Cow pen & south of the Chicken farm. The locals at this location in general praise Saradomin, so the Commander Zilyana statue is the correct statue for this location.
Taverley This location is just south of the Heroes' Guild, near the Druids' Circle. As most of Taverly believes in balance, the locals praise Guthix, so the Juna statue is the correct statue for this location.
Canifis This location is very close to the Canifis lodestone, the player can find it by running south-east from the lodestone. Due to the chaotic nature of the vampires in the area, Zamorak is the god of choice, so the Kr'il Tsutsaroth statue will be needed here.
Gu'Tanoth This location is at the Ogre city just to the south of the Yanille lodestone teleport. Considering this area is inhabited by mostly Ogres, Bandos is the god of choice for the locals. Therefore, a statue of General Graardor will be sufficient.

How To Play

Upon speaking to Copernicus Glyph, he will ask you to help him setup scaffolding to help him build his next masterpiece.

The above interface is used to adjust the scaffolding around the statue. Simply press the up or down arrows to adjust the height of the scaffold.

   

If, when you speak to him after setting up the columns, Copernicus says a certain column is correct, a green check mark or tick will be shown. Otherwise, if he mentions something wrong with a column, a red cross will appear above it. Do note that when you talk to him, Copernicus will only mention any columns you have correct since last talking to him and the first incorrect column.

The interface located at the top of the screen (as shown above) will help you to see if you have met the criteria that Copernicus has set for you.

  • Used - This is how many scaffolding pieces you have used and the total number that need to be used. In the picture above, 5 pieces have been used while a total of 15 pieces need to be used.
  • Highest - At least one column will have to be this "maximum" height. In the picture above, the highest column would have 5 scaffolding pieces max. There can be multiple columns with this value.
  • Lowest - At least one column will have to be this "minimum" height. In the picture above, the lowest column would have 2 scaffolding pieces at least. There can be multiple columns with this value.

These indicators will turn green as you meet requirements, until all of them are shown in green (as shown above).

To continue, press the icon with Copernicus' face on it. He will then check your progress and, as mentioned above, will mark columns with ticks or crosses depending on if they are correct or not. You can, of course, leave at any time by pressing the cross icon.

Once you have finished building the statue, you can pray at it to complete the D&D for this location. Depending upon which statue you build, you will either earn Prayer XP or you'll be attacked by a fanatic and earn Slayer XP for killing them.

As this is a monthly Distraction & Diversion, similar to Troll Invasion, you can only build 4 statues a month - one for each location. You will be able to pray at any of the statues that you successfully build, however.

Statues

There are four possible statues for you to build:

  • Juna (Guthix)
  • Commander Zilyana (Saradomin)
  • Kr'il Tsutsaroth (Zamorak)

Rewards

The main reward from this D&D is Construction XP. For each statue you build correctly, you can also receive Prayer XP. However, if you choose to build an incorrect statue for a certain location, you will have to defeat a fanatic to be awarded Slayer XP instead.

After you have built each statue in the same place for four months, you will get a sculpting chisel by speaking to Copernicus Glyph. As shown below, there are 4 different types you can choose, all with the same bonuses.

  • Sculpting chisel (Zamorak)
  • Sculpting chisel (Guthix)
  • Sculpting chisel (Saradomin)
  • Sculpting chisel (Bandos)

Wielding a chisel grants a Construction level boost of 1.
