Bear your Soul is a miniquest that involves the player searching for a damaged ancient artefact that is mentioned in a book.

During the miniquest, players will require a spade and a method to reach Cerberus' Lair within the Taverley Dungeon. Players thus need a dusty key if they do not have at least level 70 in Agility (can be boosted with a Summer pie from 65). Alternatively, players who have Key master teleports can teleport directly to Cerberus' Lair.


Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

The Arceuus Library is found in the north-west section of the city.

Begin the miniquest by making the trip to the Arceuus Library, which can be reached by walking west from the ship you arrive in from in Port Piscarilius, then north-west once you reach Arceuus. Alternatively, if you have paid Trossa 80,000 coins you can use the fairy ring code CIS and walk southward.

Once in the Library, search for a book called The Journey of Souls (called "Soul journey" in the inventory). If you are asked to find this book by other NPCs (Sam, Professor Gracklebone, and Villia), you can ask Biblia on the top floor to narrow-down its location.

Once the book is obtained, read through it (or just close it immediately after clicking Read). After reading the book, the chatbox will state The book referred to an artefact being buried in Kourend, but the author did not specify where it was buried. Maybe you could persuade her to change her mind.

Upon examining the book, you will find that it is by Aretha. She can be found by the Soul altar in the northern part of Arceuus. Walk north from the Library, then slight northeast past the Dark Altar and following the green-bluish road that ends at the soul altar.

The stairs leading to the crypt in the Arceuus church.

Speak to her and select the option "I've been reading your book...", and she will eventually mention the Key Master, who may have the knowledge to repair the artefact, the Soul Bearer. She will further state the Soul Bearer is buried in the crypt in the Arceuus church. The church is located east of the Library, the area with blue around the edges and green in the middle, on the minimap. Once you have reached the church climb up the stairs, then climb down the stairs that follow. Dig anywhere with a spade to obtain a damaged soul bearer.

The Key Master is located within an entrance in the hellhound area in the Taverley Dungeon.

Head to the Key Master, who is found in Cerberus' Lair within the Taverley Dungeon. You will need a dusty key if you do not have at least 70 Agility to use the shortcut. Alternatively, you can use a Key master teleport to teleport directly to him.

The soul bearer being repaired by the Key Master.

Speak to him and he will repair it into a usable soul bearer. If the player loses it, they can receive another from digging in the crypt in the Arceuus church. Congratulations, miniquest complete!
