Tears can also be earned from skilling, both on and off the battlefield. On the battlefield are mining, woodcutting, and fishing plots which can be used to collect tears at a rate of 5 at a time.

Tears can also be earned by skilling outside the battlefield, in a similar way to how [[anagogic orts]] are collected. Tears are awarded from skilling surprisingly frequently, and a player can quickly collect a substantial amount of tears from skilling activities such as [[woodcutting]].

The Battle of Lumbridge is a world event that takes place alongside the beginning of the Sixth Age and the dawn of RuneScape 3. It features weekly choices made by the players which will define its outcome and course of action. It was stated by Jagex as having an "ultimate outcome [which] will set the course for RuneScape’s future."[1]

Two weeks before the battle, a large portal appeared west of Lumbridge Castle and south of the H.A.M. Hideout, although it was not known what role this mysterious portal will play in the battle's progression.

On 11th July the portal increased in size and several other NPC's have been added to the scene. The original NPC's dialogue was also altered slightly to reflect the change to the portal.

On 17th July the portal increased in size yet again and several new NPC's were added to the scene. The original NPC's dialogue was also altered slightly to reflect the size increase of the portal.

Finally, on 22nd June the portal opened and Zamorak used it to travel into Gielinor, where he attempted to harness the power left when Guthix died. At this point Zamorak was confronted by Saradomin and at once the two began fighting. They reached a stalemate and began to teleport followers in to collect fragments of Guthix's power, in the form of tears, to increase their power and overwhelm the opposing god.

Player's Role in the Battle

With Zamorak and Saradomin both struggling to gain control of the power left by Guthix, they require the aid of adventurers to help them gain the upper hand. Players may choose which god they wish to follow, and head to either the Saradominist or the Zamorakian camp to help out. If the player wishes to change sides, they may speak to Kara-Meir at any time (she is located near the lumbridge lodestone).

Players can help the god they choose to follow by collecting Tears to help fuel their god's power and help them gain the upper hand. Tears can be collected in two ways, either through combat or skilling.

Tears can be earned from combat both on and off the battlefield. Players may attack the enemy faction's reinforcements (these are NPC soldiers, NOT other players), and upon defeating them will be awarded with 5 tears. Players may also receive tears as drops from creatures slain outside the battlefield.

Tears can also be earned from skilling, both on and off the battlefield. On the battlefield are mining, woodcutting, and fishing plots which can be used to collect tears at a rate of 5 at a time. There is no skill requirement to do this, and players collecting tears on the battlefield will not be attacked by enemy soldiers. Tears can also be earned by skilling outside the battlefield, in a similar way to how anagogic orts are collected. Tears are awarded from skilling surprisingly frequently, and a player can quickly collect a substantial amount of tears from skilling activities such as woodcutting.

Trivia

  • Kara-Meir (the main character of Betrayal at Falador) has arrived in Lumbridge, and is directly in front of the players when they are teleported to Lumbridge. She can be talked to in order to get a sense of what is going on in the battle.
