Hopespear's Will is a miniquest that involves assisting Hopespear, a goblin spirit, in returning the remains of the goblin high priests to Yu'biusk, the ancestral goblin homeland.
Head to the Goblin Cave entrance located just east of the Fishing Guild's entrance. Enter the cave and walk north, then west until you find two goblin guards guarding the entrance to the temple. Drink a dose of goblin potion and enter the temple. Do not equip the ghostspeak amulet and ring of visibility yet, or you will revert to human form and be expelled from the temple.
The crypt of the Goblin Temple.
Make your way to the crypt within the Goblin Temple, and once inside then equip the ghostspeak amulet and ring of visibility. You will see the ghost of Hopespear, the goblin prophet. Ask him why he is here, and he will tell you that he is waiting for the Big High War God to take his spirit to Yu'biusk.
Tell him that you have been to Yu'biusk, and he will ask you for a favour: to free the souls of the goblin high priests. To do this, you must complete a ritual which includes killing the goblin priests, without the use of weapons, spells, or armour, and retrieving their bones to be buried in Yu'biusk. Note: Wearing a Ring of recoil also counts as armour and will not let you receive the priest's bones upon defeat.
Remove any items you have equipped (you can keep the ghostspeak amulet and the ring of visibility equipped, however you must take off Morytania legs), then summon and battle the five high priests as done during Land of the Goblins. Unlike the quest, the high priests can be fought in any order.
Note: You do not have to defeat all the high priests in one go; you can leave the crypt to restock or to individually proceed with any bones collected thus far, but keep in mind that additional doses of goblin potions are needed to regain access to the crypt. However, if you die fighting any of the high priests, you will lose any bones in your inventory.
Once players have all five bones of the high priests, they must use a fairy ring BLQ to reach Yu'biusk. Once you arrive there, bury the bones.
The rewarded XP for each priest is as following:
Hopespear's Will was released in RuneScape on 12 November 2007 alongside Land of the Goblins. Both this miniquest and its parent quest were extracted from the August 2007 Archive of RuneScape that Old School RuneScape is built off of. Compared to the original, the Old School version has a few differences:
- Level 50 Prayer is required to start the miniquest, rather than level 40 in RuneScape.
- The total amount of Prayer experience rewarded is 38,750, rather than 13,750 in RuneScape.
- The goblin high priests are significantly stronger than their 2007 counterparts.
- Hopespear's Will is the first miniquest from the original game to be ported to Old School RuneScape since the start of the game.
