Today we have an interesting topic to discuss, this is for everyone who is wondering what Wintertodt OSRS is. I’m going to explain that now, the Wintertodt OSRS is a minigame-style boss that is fought using skills rather than combat.
It’s not very clear what the Wintertodt is if you go and ask different people from the Wintertodt Camp you most certainly will get different answers. Ignisia believes it to be an evil spirit, Ish the Navigator believes it felt the power of the Dark Altar and attacked Great Kourend to seek it, while (Undor) believes it to be a powerful fire spirit.
The theories are many but the truth is hidden somewhere in the middle, one thing is sure and that is the freezing cold winter from which you cannot escape. The Wintertodt OSRS is considered to be a boss, not a minigame, and dying here is unsafe. The normal rules for loss of items apply, and Hardcore Ironmen will lose their Hardcore status if they die here.
How to gate into Wintertodt?
There are two main methods for traveling to the Wintertodt. You can reach the camp via games necklace, provided if you have already taken the Veos’s ship to Great Kourend once. Another way to reach the wintertodt is by using the fairy ring code CIS, after paying 80,000 coins to Trossa and walking west along the path.
Requirements needed for Wintertodt
Here are all the requirements needed to be able to participate in OSRS Wintertodt minigame:
- Level Firemaking 50 is required to participate in the Wintertodt fight.
- Completion of the Quest Druidic Ritual is required to pick Bruma herbs, which are used to create rejuvenation potions.
- Owning a player-owned house is required to gain Construction experience from repairing broken braziers.
In the Wintertodt it is very important to stay warm because you will take passive damage as the cold of the OSRS Wintertodt begins to seep into your bones.
This passive damage is scaled to each player’s levels, based on the sum of the player’s Hitpoints and Firemaking levels as well as the number of braziers that are currently lit. Wearing warm or winter-themed equipment will reduce the damage taken.
It is very important to have a minimum of four of these warm items that need to be equipped to receive the best possible protection. Ironmen can use the clue hunter outfit and staff of fire until they acquire pieces of the Pyromancer outfit.
What should you do in the Wintertodt OSRS?
When you enter the Doors of Dinh, you can take supplies provided by the pyromancers from crates. Here are some of the supplies that you can get: bronze axes, hammers, knives, tinderboxes, and unfinished rejuvenation potions.
It’s not going to be very wise if you go to the Wintertodt unprepared, everyone has to know that you cannot attack the wintertodt by using conventional combat. Instead of that, you must help the pyromancers drain their energy by maintaining the braziers around the prison.
To do this, you must chop the roots of the Bruma tree found near the braziers. To obtain Bruma roots, optionally you can fletch them with a knife into more potent Bruma kindling, then add them to the burning braziers.
As I mentioned in the requirements needed for OSRS wintertodt you can take periodic damage by seeping cold, and will occasionally send snowstorms that damage all players in their proximity and can also damage pyromancers and destroy the burning braziers.
But don’t worry because you and the other players can repair destroyed braziers with a hammer. Be aware that pyromancers don’t have a lot of health and usually they will be incapacitated after taking three hits from the Wintertodt.
If the pyromancer falls to 0 health it will be unable to damage the Wintertodt, and once the brazier goes out they cannot be relit until players heal the pyromancer. To heal Pyromancers you have to give them a dose of rejuvenation potion.
How to damage the Wintertodt OSRS?
You can damage the OSRS wintertodt by the power of the Bruma flames that are channeled by the pyromancers. That is why it is so important to keep the braziers lit and the pyromancers in good condition for the duration of the fight.
You can light the braziers with a tinderbox or Bruma torch, To prevent the flames from going out, they have to be fueled by adding Bruma roots or Bruma kindling.
Rewards from the Wintertodt.
From the Wintertodt you will be rewarded with Firemaking experience, as well as a supply crate, which is obtained by earning at least 500 points during the fight. The crate will initially have two rewards inside.
For every 500 additional points will guarantee an extra reward. Also, you can get additional points over every 500 thresholds and give a scaled percentage chance for an extra reward. For example, 750 points would guarantee 2 rewards, plus a 50% chance at getting the third reward.
Your skill levels will determine the rewards that you get. High leveled players will get rarer materials. On the other hand, low leveled materials are removed from the drop table. While players with low levels in those skills can get rare materials, the drop rate is very low.
This is the list of rewards that you can get from Wintertodt:
Pyromancer outfit, Bruma torch, Warm gloves, Tome of fire, Burnt page, Phoenix pet, Dragon axe, Logs, Gems, Ores, Herbs, Seeds, Fish, gold, and Others.
I hope this topic has been helpful to you and you have learned something new. The last thing I would like to add to the topic is that OSRS Wintertodt is the best minigame for skillers with lots of high skilling stats, and with very low hit points.
Stay warm and protect yourself from the falling snow inside wintertodt because you can take damage from it. Don’t forget to get winter themed equipment before you go into that minigame, Good luck and have fun.
