Getting Started:

Please Note: You must meet one of the following criteria to start constructing God statues:

The God Statues can be built at the start of each calendar month. There are four statues in total which will grant Construction experience and allow for further Prayer or Slayer experience, depending on your choice of statue.

Each area has one correct God statue which will award Prayer experience and become an altar. If you choose any other statue, fanatics will appear and you'll need to defend your statue. You will receive some Slayer experience for your troubles.

Statue Locations:

Below is a list of the four locations and their preferred statue:

Location Map Statue
Canifis Canifis Kr'il Tutsaroth (Zamorak)
Gu'Tanoth Bandos General Graador (Bandos)
Lumbridge Lumbridge Commander Zilyana (Saradomin)
Taverley Taverley Juna (Guthix)
Prifddinas Lumbridge Queen Glarial (Seren)

Building the Statue:

Now the first thing to do is set the correct scaffoldings. Press Copernicus' icon at the top of your screen to have him check if the scaffoldings have the correct heights. He'll give you advice as long as the statues status says unfinished.

Build Status

Once the status shows finished, click on Copernicus' icon to start building the statue.

Fighting Fanatics:

If you decide to construct a God statue that the locals will not favour, a champion of that God will appear and attack you. Once you have defeated it you will be rewarded with Slayer experience.

After constructing your statue, it will allow you to pray at it to restore Prayer points.
