Playing the game:

Once you have entered the cave, you will be automatically paired up with another player. You can see his/her name on a box in the top-right corner of your game screen. Before you can hunt/hide, you must wait a few seconds (just like in the Duel Arena). After this countdown you will know that are you the hunter of hunted (you can check this on the box where your opponent's name appears). Fist of Guthix is a two-round Mini-Game, you will swap roles with your opponent at the end of the first round. The Hunter's mission is really easy; simply find and slay your opponent. If you are being hunted, your mission is to avoid your opponent and collect as many charges as you can.

All players will get the following items when they enter this Mini-Game.

Note: These items won't replenish when you swap roles with your opponent!

Name Image Amount Purpose
Bandages Bandage 5 Heals 150 Hitpoins
Catalytic rune Catalytic rune 300 Replaces all Non-elemental runes, so you do not need bring your own mind, body, chaos, astral, nature, death, blood, and soul runes
Elemental rune Elemental rune 1000 Replaces all Elemental runes, so you do not need bring your own air, water, earth and fire runes
Tele-orb Tele-orb 1 Teleports you to the Fist of Guthix in the center of the Arena

After you have died or have killed your opponent or when time has run out you will swap roles with your opponent. You will then be teleported to the edge of the arena and the second round will begin.

The cave of Fist of Guthix is not empty, there are a few interesting places.

Fist of Guthix map

Fist of Guthix:

The Fist of Guthix is an ancient source of power. If you are being hunted, try to get as close to the Fist of Guthix as you can. You will get Charges much faster there than anywhere else. There Your running energy will also replenish much faster. You can teleport to The Fist Of Guthix using your Tele-orb.

Portal Chambers:

Portal Chambers are areas where no one, not even your opponent, can see you. Only the person being hunted can enter these. You won't get any Charges and will lose Hitpoints while in the houses. There is a teleport portal inside which will randomly teleport you to another portal. Each time when you use portal it will cost you some Charges. Also when you leave one of the houses you will have a 20 seconds before you can enter a house again.

Note:There is a chance that it will fail. You will find yourself somewhere between the portal you were going in and your destination. This includes right outside the portal chamber you were teleporting from.

Stone Dispensers:

If you're being hunted, you need to carry a stone of power to collect charges. To get a stone of power simply click on the Stone Dispensers.

Stone of power

Back to Top

Charges:

Collecting charges is the main point of this Mini-Game. You need a stone of power to collect charges. Remember that you cannot wield a weapon or shield when you are carrying the stone of power. The closer you are to the Fist of Guthix the more charges you get. Note that you will take damage from the raging power when you wield the stone. The rate at which you take damage will increase while you are in a portal chamber.

You can see the amount of charges you have on the box where you also find the name of your opponent.

Charge

The max amount of charges is 5000. This means that either the next round will automatically start or the game will end.

  • weapon: an elemental staff, a maple shortbow with mithril arrows or above, and a rune scimitar (for an extra strength boost we recommend a Rune berserker shield)

P2P:

When you are the hunter you should have a variety of equipment with you so you can hit your opponent while they still think you are using only one style. To do this it's recommended to bring a Drag Dagger(p++) and use its special on your prey to poison them. You should also bring some Range and Magic equipment. Note: If you are going to mage with Ancient Magicks then you will need an Ancient staff if you want to auto-cast.

  • Rune full helm (if your hunter uses melee or ranged), or Blue wizard hat (if your hunter uses magic)

P2P:

When you are being hunted there is a load of equipment you should wear. You need the right armor for the right attack style. This is why we recommend you to bring Range armour, Magic armour, and/or Melee armour. If your hunter is a mage then you should wear the best type of Dragonhide armor you can wear. If your hunter is a ranger then you should wear the best type of Magic/Melee armour you can wear with the best Ranged Defence bonus.

If you have high Defence and prayer wearing a monk robe bottom or holy symbol will boost your prayer.

Strategies:

Hunter:

Seek and destroy. There are several strategies you can use however the best strategy is a combination of all the ones listed.

Strategy #1:

Some prey tend to hang out around the middle of the arena. Therefore run as fast as you can to the center to find out the location of your prey. If your opponent is not there wait a couple of minutes for him to show up. If he does not, in a clockwise or counterclockwise direction around near the edge of the arena, making sure to keep the edge of the arena in your mini-map.

Strategy #2:

Run directly across the arena to where your opponent spawns and bind/snare/entangle or use the Drag Dagger's (p++) special on them immediately. Attack them for as long as you can and keep using bind/snare/entangle.

Strategy #3

If your prey tends to hide near the houses, what players call "a house hugger", run to the house he entered. Then walk out of their mini-map's range and go back to it. Some opponents use the portal inside while other simply leave the house when they think it is safe. Keep repeat this process to rouse your prey. Depending on your camera angle, you may have to go slightly more towards other house.

Hunted:

Grab a stone, and wield it. Wear the best balanced armor you can until you are sure what combat style your hunter uses

Strategy #1:

Run around the arena in circles, but don't go too close to the middle to avoid your hunter. Remember to stay in the 10 charges range to maximize the your charges. If he/she spots you, run through the middle a couple of times and use the houses to hide. If your hunter does get to you, run to the edge of the arena and use the Tele-orb.

Strategy #2:

Run to the center of the arena. When you spot your hunter put the appropriate prayer on and use some of the bandages. If your health runs to low head to the nearest house, but don't enter it. Only enter when your hunter is almost next to you. Now you have 2 options, use the teleport inside or leave the house through the barrier. Use the first option when the hunter keeps guarding the house you are in. If the hunter runs to another house you may leave the house the way you came in. Keep repeating this process using either one of these options. From time to time run through the center to the next house to get extra charges. When you are almost of out hitpoints, put on the appropriate prayer and teleport to the center of the arena, using the tele-orb. This way you receive a final bunch of charges right before you die.

Note: Note: Only use this strategy if you have high Defence and high prayer. And keep in mind the house portals work about 50% of the time. The other 50% of the time they will teleport you to the middle, near your hunter if (s) he is there. Also when you leave a house you will not be able to enter another one for another 20 seconds.

When in the middle it helps to keep moving you character around with-in the Fist area. That way you are making it a lot harder for your opponent to click "attack" or try to use a spell on you since there are so many people in there. However it is still suggested that you keep the appropriate prayer on, for eventually they will able to select you. Remember to always to use your mini-map for moving inside the Fist area, because you have a very likely chance of clicking "attack" on someone and not moving at all.

Strategy #3 "Dancing":

Run along the edge of the arena, just in 10 charges range. When your run energy runs out hide behind the stones, statues and ruins. When your hunter spots you, you can can teleport to the center or hug houses. Another option is to block your opponent's attack and save energy by hiding behind a single rock/statue/ruin. However you will need to stay alert to every movement of your enemy and be ready to move when needed.

Strategy #4 "House hugging"

This is one of the safest ways to collect as much charges as possible. Stay in the vicinity of the houses. If the hunter spots you, enter the house. Then either use the portal or leave the house by the barrier when the hunter is out of range.
