Redirected from Achievement Diary

Task icon
Achievements (also known as Tasks and previously known as Achievement Diaries) are small challenges that players may complete in order to earn rewards. The Achievement system consists of Tasks that are usually tied to a specific area and are meant to test the player's knowledge about that area. There are currently ten areas that have Tasks to complete. The Tasks of each area are split into five categories, based on their difficulty. The easiest tasks usually do not require any skill levels to complete, but most higher level tasks require the player to have high skill levels and difficult quests completed, as well as in-depth knowledge of a particular area within RuneScape, such as the TzHaar Fight Caves. With the exception of the Lumbridge and Draynor Tasks, the Tasks are for members only, as many tasks involve members' skills or quests. A small number of the Varrock and Falador Tasks can be done as a non-member, but the task set will not be 'completed' unless the player is a member. With the release of the Daemonheim task set and Desert task set, there are 631 tasks in total.

HistoryEdit

The first achievement set was released on 8 May 2007. It was originally named an Achievement Diary and had three difficulty levels: Easy, Medium and Hard. The interface resembled that of the quest list and was actually a sub-menu of the Quest Tab. As with quests, each diary turned green once completed. Achievement diaries were later split into a separate interface tab, although has since merged into the Noticeboard tab.

A total of six more Achievement Diaries were later released. The Ardougne Tasks, released on 20 October 2009, was the first set to have a fourth difficulty level, Elite. Elite Tasks were added to most other areas on 7 September 2010.

On 24 November 2010, the system of Achievement Diaries was changed into the Task system. The interface was redesigned, extra rewards were added, and more tasks (not considered to be part of the Lumbridge and Draynor Tasks set) were released for the Lumbridge area, meant as an introduction to the Tasks system for new players. Since then, more tasks have been periodically added to this generic set. Many of these "Miscellaneous" tasks are very simple to complete (e.g. Use the "Run" feature) and as such have a Beginner difficulty level.

On 19 September 2012 the Task System was renamed Achievements.

The Task systemEdit

To access the Task system, players should click on the Hero Hero interface icon icon in their interface. In Legacy-mode you'll need to click the Settings-icon to access this. Doing so will bring up the Hero interface. This interface can be used to view Summary (a summary of your account), skills, pets and achievements. By opening the Achievement tab, a player can view a list of all tasks in their current area. They are broken down into five colour-coded difficulty levels, from Beginner to Elite Tasks. The Burthorpe/Taverley set only contains Beginner Tasks. The Lumbridge/Draynor set contains Beginner to Hard Tasks. All other sets contain Easy to Elite tasks.

  • Blue - Beginner
  • Green - Easy
  • Red - Medium
  • White - Hard
  • Purple - Elite
  • Lock icon - You lack one or more prerequisites to complete this Task
  • + - Pinned Task to refer to it from the side window (right click to Pin/Unpin)
  • Check mark - Completed Task

Players can view Tasks of another area by selecting a different area in the drop-down menu in the top left corner of the interface. In the Task list the player can also see the total amount of Tasks they have completed, and filter out Tasks they don't have the requirements for yet or that are not part of an area set.

When the player hovers their pointer over a Task, its name will be displayed. The player can click on a Task to see more information about it, including a detailed description of the Task, the rewards that will be earned upon completion, the requirements needed to complete the Task, and in some cases a hint about how to complete it. Here, players may also select to 'pin' the Task. A pinned Task will always be displayed in their Tasks side interface, wherever they are. Since the 31 January 2012 update, pinned Tasks also appear in a small window on the left side of the screen. Currently only one Task can be pinned. Attempting to pin a different Task will automatically unpin the player's prior choice.

Tasks that are part of an area task set have the Task map icon icon next to them. Completion of all of a particular area's easiest grade of area tasks enables players to claim a Magic lamp, claim a unique wearable item for that area that has special abilities, and unlock extra benefits from resources in that area. Completion of each subsequent grade of tasks upgrades the wearable item, unlocks better benefits, and provides more lamps. Tasks that lack the Task map icon are not part of the area tasks and do not need to be completed to gain these benefits. These other miscellaneous tasks generally give small cash rewards that can be collected from Explorer Jack. Following the update on 3 December, cash rewards were added directly into the money pouch, though other rewards still needed to be claimed from Explorer Jack.

Achievements

The Task list

To start an area Task set, players will need to talk to the NPC found near the Task icon Task map icon in that area on the minimap. This is not true for Beginner level tasks. For example when the Burthorpe and Taverley Tasks were added, most players already had several completed upon logging in after the update.

Completing a task

When a player completes a task.

Task complete side popup

The pop up that appears when a task is completed

When a Task is completed, players will be informed in the chat interface, and that particular Task will be struck out in the journal. A popup at the top of the screen will also inform the player that the Task is completed. These popups may be disabled from the Task list.

If 350 Tasks are completed, the player will unlock the music track The Task at Hand. If all tasks are completed, including those that are not part of an area set, the player will unlock the Taskmaster emote. This currently requires 631 tasks to be completed.

There currently is no Task Tutor, although many NPCs, such as Sir Vant in the tutorial, have mentioned one.

List of area TasksEdit

There are eleven Task areas at the moment:

Additionally, the Recommendations given by the skill experts in the Burthorpe and Taverley areas are somewhat like tasks.

TriviaEdit

  • After the Tasks and Skill Targets update, players who had already done things that were in Tasks, were welcomed by a massive load of congratulations (and a hefty cash reward).
  • When you reach 10 tasks total, the message upon would say: "You have completed ten Tasks in the Task System, which is a Task in itself!"
  • On 15 February 2011, along with the Urns update, a new 418th task "Urning a Living" was added (requiring the player to craft an urn). However, the task was not initially displayed in the task menu. Players who had completed the previous 417 tasks but not the hidden task were unable to use the Taskmaster emote. This was fixed on 29 March 2011 along with the release of 9 new generic tasks.
  • When reaching 350 achievements total, you unlock a music track. When first released, there was a slight error with the message upon unlocking in which it would say: "You have unlocked a new music track:."
  • While standing within the northern walls of Falador, it appears as if you are using the Burthorpe/Taverley task set.
  • It is currently possible to complete certain tasks in the Falador and Varrock sets while free-to-play.
  • When the Tasks interface on the sidebar is open and one talks to Oziach and browses his shop, the current tasks are replaced by "NO TASK".
  • Many areas that do not have a current task list such as the Wilderness, the Gnome Lands, Feldip Hills and the Outer Planes (Zanaris) are still displayed as locations in the tasks tab when visiting the area.
  • Lots of task names are references to songs, movies, TV shows, internet memes, etc.
  • Successfully completing all the Free-to-play tasks will reward the player: 187,740 Coins, 1 Red dye, 1 Magic staff, 60 Mind runes, 60 Air runes, 1 Air talisman, 5 Raw herrings, 1 Sapphire amulet and 10 Cosmic runes.
  • At Runefest 2011, it was confirmed that an Elf Task Diary would be released along with the future Mourning's Ends Part III. In May 2014 Jagex announced this quest actual name will be Plague's End. The Task set was not released alongside the quest, and the release date is currently unknown.
  • The Morytania Task set was added to the task list along with the update on 13 March 2012, but it had no tasks in it until the update on 27 March 2012.
  • There is currently an error with the counting of the recently added divination achievements that allows a player to "earn" the task master emote by completing all but one task.
  • If you completed all the tasks for a higher group (Medium tasks, for example) without completing the ones that precede it, then you would not be able to claim your reward until you've done so.
  • The Varrock Easy and Seers Village Easy Tasks are the only tasks that have no combat in any form, allowing skillers to complete them.
