Elder God Wars: Prepare For War

Elder God Wars: Prepare For War

The battle cry of a thousand Dragonkin erupts over the city of Senntisten. This is it. The first assault of the Elder Gods - and Gielinor's last stand. Time is not on your side.

This pivotal moment in Gielinor's history is our next God Wars Dungeon experience. It's set to be our most diverse God Wars Dungeon yet, delivered over four epic fronts beginning later this month!

We'll reveal details about the first front soon, but today we'll cover your preparations for this world-shattering battle. Ready?


Jas has rallied a powerful army to spearhead the first assault on the Cathedral. Only adventurers with significant slaying experience stand a chance! You'll need at least 92 Slayer to take on these merciless minions.

If you're looking for a crash-course in levelling Slayer, head to the RS Wiki to optimise your training!

We also recommend you bring Tier 80 gear or higher, with at least level 80 in all stats for your chosen combat style - though it's not a requirement.

One more thing - rumour has it this first army is bearing siege machines of some kind, hoping to break down the Cathedral's defences with brute force. While you'll still need to be combat-ready, having level 90 in Construction may also open up some unique opportunities (if you haven't already, this is a great time to try the Construction Contracts added last November!).
