Explorers report that a new tunnel has opened up, and tell tales of a huge chasm in the earth populated by floating creatures made out of living light.
A passing druid is reported as being very excited at the news, and claims that the caves contain a focus of mystical power, the fabled Tears of Guthix. He quoted from a druidic tome:
"But on his way into the depths of the earth, he sat and rested in this cave;
and, thinking of the battle-scarred desert that now stretched from one side of his world to the other, he wept.
And so great was his sorrow, and so great was his life-giving power, that the rocks themselves began to weep with him..."
As well as a new quest, this update includes a repeatable minigame that will give players XP in whichever skill is their weakest.
Players who have many quest points will find themselves at an advantage.
