The Karamja Tasks are the Tasks relating to the massive island, Karamja. The Karamja Tasks were the first group of tasks released, back in 2007. The easy NPC for these tasks is Pirate Jackie the Fruit found at the Brimhaven Agility Arena entrance at the Agility training map icon, Dungeon map icon and Minigame map icon icons. The medium NPC for these tasks is Kaleb Paramaya found at the Shilo Village Inn north of the river, up a ladder. The hard and elite NPC for these tasks is a Jungle Forester found at all entrances north of the Kharazi Jungle. They will be indicated by a Task map icon icon on your minimap and the world map. To complete all of the tasks, you will need the stats shown to the right. In the Items needed list you will see all available items you can use. In the Guide chart you will only see the minimum item.

  • Task #12: The hidden wall is the door to the lesser demons
  • Task #15: If Tai Bwo Wannai minigame percentage already is 100% you need to lower it and get it back up to 100 percent to get the task completion, to do this speak to any villager holding a trading stick in their left hand.
  • Task #16: Along with #11 and #19 you can get this when going for 100% Tai Bwo Wannai favour.
  • Task #17: For those who have started the Legends' quest it may be easier to cut a Teak tree in the Kharazi Jungle. If you cut a special Teak log it also counts. Teak trees on Ape Atoll do not work.
  • Task #18: For those who have started the Legends' quest it may be easier to cut a Mahogany tree in the Kharazi Jungle. Mahogany trees on Ape Atoll do not work.
  • Task #19: Catch more than one Karambwan as you might burn one for the hard task of Cooking one.
  • Task #20: Along with #5 and #19 you can get this when going for 100% Tai Bwo Wannai favour. The gems for Machete trade requires talking to Safta Doc who can be found near the anvil in Tai Bwo Wannai; select the "What do you do here?" option. (Note: you need to be in minigame mode, with favour showing in the top right hand corner of the screen, and need to have received Trading sticks from Murcaily.) The cheapest deal requires 3 Opals, 1 Gout tuber and 300 Trading sticks. Mine 10 Opals in Shilo and trade a few to the Gem store for a decent supply of sticks. Gout tuber is a rare random event when cutting the jungle in the minigame, a Spade is needed to dig it up. The tuber can be traded, but the price has inflated greatly due to these tasks, and the tuber now costs 6843 coins on the Grand Exchange. You can pay 300 Trading sticks to have the Opal machete made, then immediately sell it to Gabooty for the same price. During the lengthy jungle cutting lots of random events will attack. If necessary use Prayer protections and recharge Prayer at the village statue. (Note: You need to have talked to Murcaily and asked him where to get a machete otherwise Safta Doc will not have that option)
  • Task #22: Alternatively, a player may also complete this task using the fruit tree patch in Herblore Habitat.
  • Task #26: Experienced players should go ahead and kill the easier Bronze dragon for the hard task. From the bottom of the southern stairs go as south-east as possible, chop through two lots of blockage and continue west.
  • Task #28: The password for the gate is Ka-Lu-Min. The Charter Ship crew is at the southern-most dock. You do not need as many coins if you have a Ring of charos and/or have completed Cabin Fever. Also, the in-game guide says you have to complete Monkey Madness, but this is not true. Only The Grand Tree is required.
  • Task #29: Along with #5 and #11 you can get this when going for 100% Tai Bwo Wannai favour. You can mine the Red topaz from either Shilo Village or Tai Bwo Wannai.

  • Task #30: To easily become champion of the Fight Pit: look for a world with no one in the minigame and ask a friend to let you kill them. (make sure to return the favour!)
  • Task #31: The Ket-Zek is level 130 and killing one requires surviving 30 waves of the Fight Cave. Take a reasonable amount of supplies to deal with the situation. See TzHaar Fight Cave for more details.
  • Task #32: The Oomlie wrap can be eaten anywhere. You also do not have to prepare it yourself (you can actually buy it off the Grand Exchange).
  • Task #33: Crafting Nature runes as part of The Great Orb Project or from the Abyss will count as a task completion. You do not need to access the Nature altar from Karamja. However, crafting Nature runes while Dungeoneering will not count for this task.
  • Task #34: If you have completed Tai Bwo Wannai Trio, you can just buy raw Karambwan from Tiadeche in Tai Bwo Wannai. You can actually buy raw Karambwan from Grand Exchange and cook it there.
  • Task #35: The entrance to the cave is south-west of Shilo Village. Deathwings are found south of the giant door. Search the bookcase in the cave with the burning octogram with a crack in the wall behind it. You need a lockpick to open the giant doors to the monsters.
  • Task #37: The leaves are found near the small pool of water, in the Kharazi Jungle. When collecting Palm leaves: You do not have to wait for the tree to spawn another 4 leaves after shaking one down, just drop it and pick it up five times.
  • Task #38: For those who have completed While Guthix Sleeps, you will still get the achievement when getting a Slayer task from Lapalok. Also, the task is completed as soon as an assignment is given, so if you have the points, you can then cancel the task and get a new one from any slayer master. You can combine this with the Elite task "Ten in a Row", if the task you request from Lapalok (not Duradel) is a multiple of 10.
  • Task #39: It is recommended you kill a Bronze dragon as they are the weakest of the three found in the Brimhaven Dungeon.

  • Task #47: You need only finish "Ten In a Row" with Lapalok.

You get 75 points for finishing 10, 20, 30, etc. with Lapalok. Also, if you receive the task from Duradel and wait to finish it until after While Guthix Sleeps, it will still count.
