Arceuus House symbol

The Arceuus House (pronounced "Arr-KAY-us") in Link to Great Kourend Great Kourend are wizards who commit themselves to studying magic through the Link to Dark Altar Dark Altar, a mysterious altar whose powers extend to life and death, expanding their Skill icon of Magic, File:Magic icon.png Magic abilities and Link to Runecrafting producing runes for the region.

There is a Link to Fairy rings fairy ring that can be reanimated by paying Chat head image of Trossa, File:Trossa chathead.png Trossa, located north of the Link to Arceuus House Library Arceuus House Library, a one-time payment of 80,000 coins. The code, CIS, can only be used after Trossa reanimates the fairy ring.

A majority of those who reside in the Arceuus House are former humans who, through the power of the Dark Altar, are able to achieve immortality by moving their soul from their mortal body into an incorporeal one. Their souls are freed from the mortal bodies in the crypt below the church, and take on the incorporeal form commonly seen among Arceuus House residents.

The art of runecrafting has been known by the Arceuus House since 150 years before the wave of visitors from the mainland arrived. However, they were unable to create Item image of %7B%7B%3Alaw+rune%7D%7D, File:law rune.png law runes, explaining the lack of teleportation spells around Link to Zeah Zeah.

However, a book titled Item image of %7B%7B%3ATransvergence+theory%7D%7D, File:Transvergence theory.png Transvergence Theory documents the differences between runecrafting in the mainland and runecrafting in Zeah. While the mainland uses talismans to teleport individuals to another dimension, runecrafters in Zeah use energy that emanates from the ground near the Dark Altar to change the essence.

The Arceuus House is closest to the northern reaches of Zeah, and is the first line of defence against the Link to Wintertodt Wintertodt, a mysterious entity that brings along with it extremely harsh cold.

Transportation

There are several methods of travel:

Gaining house favour

WARNING: If you already have 100% favour in another House, ensure you have spoken to the respective House's Link to Architectural Alliance#Walkthrough Architect to lock in the favour. To do this you must have started the Link to Architectural Alliance Architectural Alliance miniquest by speaking to Chat head image of Hosa, File:Hosa chathead.png Hosa. Otherwise gaining favour in another House before speaking to them will make you lose favour in that house!

The Arceuus House's architect is Chat head image of Arcis, File:Arcis chathead.png Arcis, who is found east of the bank.

Earning the favour of the Arceuus can be done by assisting the Arceuus Elders with expanding their knowledge, seeking your own dark knowledge, mining Item image of %7B%7B%3ADense+essence+block%7D%7D, File:Dense essence block.png Dense essence block and using the Link to Arceuus spellbook Arceuus spellbook. Once earning 100% favour of the Arceuus house, players are able to runecraft Item image of %7B%7B%3ABlood+rune%7D%7D, File:Blood rune.png blood and Item image of %7B%7B%3Asoul+rune%7D%7D, File:soul rune.png soul runes at their respective Link to Runecrafting altar altars if players have level 77 and 90 Link to Runecrafting Runecrafting respectively.

Assisting library customers

Arceuus House Library

A player in the Arceuus House Library.

Because of the Link to Arceuus House Library Arceuus House Library's unhelpful librarian, Chat head image of Logosia, File:Logosia chathead.png Logosia, customers in the library are having trouble finding the texts they seek. Players can speak to Chat head image of Sam, File:Sam chathead.png Sam, Chat head image of Professor Gracklebone, File:Professor Gracklebone chathead.png Professor Gracklebone or Chat head image of Villia, File:Villia chathead.png Villia to search bookcases for books or scrolls around the library for them. To help narrow down where to search, talk to Chat head image of Biblia, File:Biblia chathead.png Biblia, the assistant librarian found at the top floor of the library. She wanders around the northern parts of the library.

Note that if a player is required to find either of the books Transportation Incantations or Soul journey, it is recommended to read them, as doing so will unlock the Link to Teleport to Kourend Teleport to Kourend spell and the Aretha chathead Bear your Soul miniquest respectively.

Once the text is found and returned to the respective NPC, players are rewarded with a Item image of %7B%7B%3Abook+of+arcane+knowledge%7D%7D, File:book of arcane knowledge.png book of arcane knowledge and 2.5% favour. Speak to another NPC looking for assistance, as the NPC you already helped will be busy reading the book/scroll you gave them.

Seeking dark knowledge

Horphis chathead

Once players reach 20% favour, they can speak to Chat head image of Horphis, File:Horphis chathead.png Horphis, an Arceuus House wizard, who will ask players to collect Item image of %7B%7B%3Adark+manuscript%7D%7D, File:dark manuscript.png dark manuscripts found within the library. Players can again speak to Chat head image of Biblia, File:Biblia chathead.png Biblia to narrow down the location of the dark manuscripts and the books.

Multiple manuscripts can be obtained without consistently returning to Horphis. Each manuscript given rewards a Item image of %7B%7B%3Abook+of+arcane+knowledge%7D%7D, File:book of arcane knowledge.png book of arcane knowledge and 5% favour.

Mining dense essence blocks

Clerris chathead

Once players reach 25% favour, they will be able to mine Item image of %7B%7B%3Adense+essence+block%7D%7D, File:dense essence block.png dense essence blocks within the Link to Arceuus essence mine dense runestone mine, located east of the Link to Dark Altar Dark Altar. Make sure you bring a Item image of %7B%7B%3Achisel%7D%7D, File:chisel.png chisel as well as a pickaxe and have level 38 in crafting and mining.

Players can turn in dense essence blocks to Chat head image of Clerris, File:Clerris chathead.png Clerris, rewarding 0.1% favour for every block handed in.

General tips and additional information

  • As this involves a lot of running, players should wear Link to Weight-reducing clothing lightweight gear (e.g. full Graceful hood chathead Graceful) and bring a few Super energy(1) Super energy or Stamina potion(1) Stamina potions.
  • Most players spend most of their time earning favour at the Link to Arceuus House Library library since it is the fastest method, which takes about two hours to gain 100% favour from zero.
  • Always speak to Chat head image of Biblia, File:Biblia chathead.png Biblia, who roams the corridor on the top floor, for help with finding books and Item image of %7B%7B%3ADark+manuscript%7D%7D, File:Dark manuscript.png manuscripts.
  • At 20% favour, it is strongly recommended to focus on manuscripts while doing book runs along the way only if they pose no inconvenience or entail going out of the way.
  • Stockpiling manuscripts saves time, but it helps to turn them in if going to past Chat head image of Horphis, File:Horphis chathead.png Horphis.
  • You can stockpile books and scrolls by returning to the location of the most recent request and grabbing another copy after handing the original in.
  • Even while remaining on the same world, the locations of books and manuscripts change after a while.
  • Sharing the locations of books and manuscripts with other players allows you to find them much more quickly. The best world to do this on is 310, the Kourend Group Activity world.
  • You can plant Item image of %7B%7B%3Amithril+seeds%7D%7D, File:mithril seeds.png mithril seeds to mark the location of books and manuscripts that you find. This makes it easier to find the same shelf if you return to retrieve a second copy of a book; the flowers also serve as a clear marker of the location of books and manuscripts for other players.
  • If you plan to reanimate ensouled heads, it would be wisest to start reanimating at 60% favour. This is because reanimation also increases favour within the house and is a more efficient way of reaching 100% while simultaneously training prayer and magic.
