Soul Wars is a members-only team minigame that lasts twenty minutes per game and can be played on any world. In Soul Wars, two opposing teams compete against each other to gather soul fragments and offer them to the Soul Obelisk in order to weaken, and ultimately defeat, each other's avatars through combat. Soul Wars has also been a great place for players to train Slayer, due to the Slayer monsters located in the arena.
|Far to the west, upon an island long isolated from the rest of RuneScape, two great creatures vie for control of a powerful obelisk but without any clear victor. Recently, a curious man upon a strange pilgrimage found the island and, for his own obscure purposes, has opened the field of battle to any who wish to pit their mettle against the smaller creatures of the island, other adventurers, or even the mighty avatars themselves. See if you can be the ultimate warrior.|
Soul Wars Edgeville Map
The Soul Wars portal
To get to Soul Wars, one must enter the Soul Wars portal in Edgeville. It is located south-west of the bank, and west of the abandoned mausoleum. After going through the portal, the player will arrive at Nomad's camp, where players can exchange Zeal points for rewards, learn how to play Soul Wars, or join one of two teams to play Soul Wars.
Soul Wars does not require any levels or quests in order to be played. Players should note the following things, however:
- Fighting the avatars and monsters is easier with higher Slayer levels; pyrefiends and jellies have Slayer requirements of 30 and 52 respectively while higher Slayer levels can be used to kill the other team's avatar faster. Players can still be useful to the team with a low Slayer level as it is not required to attack other players.
- This is a combat-based minigame, so it would be a good idea to have at least level 43 Prayer for Protect from Melee.
- Players will be asked to remove their cape before entering a waiting room; each team has a different cape colour for identification (blue and red)
The objective of Soul Wars is to defeat the opposing team's avatar more times than they defeat yours in 20 minutes. The avatars begin each battle with a Slayer requirement of 100, making them impervious to all attacks. (Note that a slayer cape, wild pie, and slayer's respite cannot be brought to the battlefield.)
In order to reduce their Slayer requirement, players will have to kill some of the smaller Slayer creatures to gather soul fragments and offer them to the Soul Obelisk, which can only be done if the team controls it by having more people in the surrounding area.
