Sand Crabs & Soul-Bearers

This week in Old School we've got a few updates to Great Kourend, including a brand new low-level training spot and a miniquest! Make your way to Great Kourend today and take advantage of these lovely new additions.

Bare Your Soul & Soul Bearer

The soul bearer is here! No more will collecting the ensouled heads of your victims have to inconvenience you, simply send them straight to the bank with this handy demonic item.

The soul bearer can hold up to 1,000 charges, each charge costing one blood rune and one soul rune. Simply use the runes on the soul bearer to add charges. Every time you bank an ensouled head, one charge is consumed.

It is also possible to combine the charges of two soul bearers (up to a maximum of 1,000 charges on either soul bearer).

You can unlock the soul bearer by completing the 'Bare Your Soul' miniquest, started by finding the 'Soul Journey' book in the Arceuus library.

Sand crabs

A new critter has appeared in Zeah. Sand crabs, a creature ideal for low-level training, can be found along the southern coast of the Hosidius area in Great Kourend.

These crabs have low defence, high health and, due to being made of sand, cannonballs simply pass right through them.
