The Arceuus Spellbook is commonly called the necromancy spellbook. It’s filled with dark magic fueled by the Dark Altar in the family’s territory. Its spells can be used in a combination with the Slayer tasks as well as Prayer skilling. That makes it a little useful for OSRS gold farming and leveling skills.
How to Get the Arceuus Spellbook
With at least 60% favor with the Arceuus House, you should speak to Tyss near the Dark Altar. One possible way of getting there is to teleport to Wintertodt Camp and run south-west. Another is to use the fairy ring code cis. However, to use that method, you have to pay Trossa 80,000 gold just once. He can be found near the fairy ring in House Arceuus territory.
Players with the prerequisites and at least level 80 Construction may build a Dark Altar in their home, bypassing the need to go to the real one.
Arceuus spells revolve around reanimating the dead. From goblins to dragons, you can animate corpses though there are some conditions for it.
You need an Ensouled Head for the spell to work. The available creatures for the spells will drop these heads. Another condition is that you can use the spell on the head indefinitely—as long as you don’t move away from the area where you got it. Otherwise, it will only work near the Dark Altar. The heads must also be in item form, and you can’t animate noted heads.
Using the spell and then killing these reanimated creatures rewards you with Arceuus favor, Slayer XP if the creature is relevant to your task, and Magic as well as Prayer XP. Take note that you have to be the proper level to claim some of the rewards. Also, Demons, Giants, Horrors, and Dragons won’t grant Slayer experience, since multiple types of task monsters drop these heads.
Besides the Reanimation Spells, the spellbook also contains Teleport Spells. All of the destinations have something to do with death and graves, however.
The destinations are:
- the Dark Altar
- Lumbridge Graveyard
- Draynor Manor
- Mind Altar
- Salve Graveyard
- Fenkenstrain’s Castle
- West Ardougne
- Harmony Island
- Cemetery (Wilderness)
- Ape Atoll
Look forward to powerful new spells in the spellbook! A past update note listed that as a project they’re working on, so it has to be implemented soon. In the meantime, enjoy using the spellbook for OSRS gold or Runescape gold farming, skilling, or just playing around with them. Have fun continuing your adventures in Gielinor. The unusual situation we have today gives you the time to do so, take advantage of it!
However, don’t forget to stay healthy. Too much of one thing is bad, so make sure you eat proper meals and drink water regularly. Keep a consistent sleep schedule so that you can keep your immunity strong. Wash your hands often, and observe proper protocol when going out. Stay safe and disinfect regularly.
Most of all, try to find the silver lining of these uncertain times. It will pass soon, so don’t despair!
