Shattered Heart

This Distraction and Diversion has been rated as Low Risk. You may be skilling in areas with aggressive monsters or other dangers however. See the minigames page for a definition of high and low risk.


Shattered Heart is an minigame that can take place while training any non-combat skill. As you train your skills, strange rock pieces drop into your inventory. When you receive 2 rock pieces from training a certain skill, you can place them onto the plinth in Varrock Museum. Each two rocks you place on the plinth builds up a portion of the Dahmaroc statue.

If you wish to stop receiving strange rocks, talk to one of the Varrock Museum archaeologists. You can always go back and talk with them once more to get rock pieces again.

NOTE: You cannot collect more than 2 rocks per skill even after placing them on the plinth. You will be able to collect more strange rocks for a skill after obtaining rocks for all other non-combat skills. You can store rocks in a Statue collection bag to save bank space while you collect others if you choose.

It is typical to receive your first strange rock fairly early into your skilling. After receiving one, your chances for receiving a second drops by half. Strange rocks are not obtainable via every skilling method however. Outlined below are methods that yield a high probability of obtaining strange rocks.

PLEASE NOTE: If you have no free space available in your inventory and obtain a Strange rock, the last item you just used/made (last fish cooked, last (u) bow cut, etc.) will be destroyed in order to make room for the Strange rock. You will get an in-game message when this occurs, letting you know that "something odd" has happened to your item, and that you are "left with a Strange rock." Note that the only items not destroyed in this manner are Runite items.

If you have a Statue collection bag in your inventory, any Strange rocks you find are automatically stored in the bag, meaning that an item is not destroyed if your inventory is full. When this occurs, the message "You find a strange rock and add it to your bag." is displayed in your chat box.

To receive a reward for strange rock pieces you must collect 2 rocks from the skill you are training. You can talk to the archaeologists at the Varrock Museum for additional information about your rock pieces and a list of remaining pieces you need to collect. After you finish your dialogue with them, click on the plinth in front of the curator to construct a piece of the Dahmaroc statue. You will be rewarded with experience points based on your current level in the relevant skill.

If you manage to construct the entire statue, it will briefly come to life and then burst apart. This means that you cannot finish rebuilding the statue for 1 week (you can start receiving strange rocks and adding them to the statue straight away, but you cannot add the final one until 1 week has passed). Each time you manage to complete the statue, you will receive replica pieces. You'll receive a plinth to put in your Player owned house's Study to add the replica pieces. As with the statue in the museum, you need two replica pieces before it can be added. Once you collect all 30 replica pieces you will have your very own Dahmaroc statue. Dahmaroc Statue

NOTE: Completing the replica statue in your house does not offer any further rewards besides having the completed replica in your house.

Key token

Additionally, whilst skilling in activities that can earn you Shattered Heart rocks, you will have a chance at receiving key token usable for Treasure Hunter. Unlike the Shattered Heart rocks, these tokens earned through skilling are not limited, and can be received regardless of whether you have found your Shattered Heart rocks yet or not. You can choose to have them auto-credited to earned keys in the Treasure Hunter interface, and have up to ten of them saved up.
