Guthix is the god of balance. After arriving to Gielinor, amazed by its perfection, he invited many races he deemed worthy to inhabit the world, most notably, gnomes, elves, dwarves, humans and sheep, and after doing so, Guthix went into a deep sleep. When it awoke, the gods, most notably, Saradomin and Zamorak were causing chaos in their God Wars. The battlefield was the Wilderness. To stop the wars, Guthix cast out all the gods and created a physical barrier around RuneScape, the Edicts of Guthix, warning that they may not interfere in the world, except in smaller forms, such as the use of prayer. Guthix shows it needs no followers to exist by absorbing energy from the earth. Guthix is a shapeshifter, and able to take the form of anything. It was as a butterfly when it came to Gielinor. Guthix's god symbol is an upright limpwurt root.

Evidence from the God letters suggest that Guthix is the strongest of the gods.


Guthix is the god of balance, meaning that it does not favour one gods opinions more than another. Although many player followers of Guthix tend to choose to favour the path of chaos and evil (Zamorak) or wisdom and order (Saradomin). But to break the Guthixian population down even more, there are two general groups: Modernists and Traditionalist (A.K.A. Premodernist).


Modernists are the dominant group of Guthixians (meaning there are more). They believe in balance more loosely, and will tend to side with one of the other two major gods. They acknowledge Saradomin and Zamorak as the gods of order and chaos.


Traditionalists are in much fewer numbers than the Modernists. They are a bit more strict to the beliefs and teachings of Guthix's ideals on balance and nature. They will typically acknowledge that Zaros and Armadyl are still the true gods of evil and justice, but that Saradomin and Zamorak have "Temporarily" taken their places. Many NPCs (such as Gypsy Aris, druids and Void Knights) may be Traditionalists. The Edicts of Guthix are scripts written by Guthix, probably followed by many traditionalists.
