New Varrock Tasks are tasks completed in New Varrock, first accessed upon starting the Dimension of Disaster quest. The Taskmaster for this task set is Tiny Zemouregal, found near the fountain in the centre of Varrock. Rewards for completing the tasks in the set at each level include Zemomarks, the currency of New Varrock, and upgrades to Varrock armour. Completing these tasks is a requirement for the completionist cape. The tasks only need to be done once; replaying the quest will not reset your progress on the tasks.

You can then craft the full set of robes yourself, no killing of guards needed. None, but alternatively, Dimension of Disaster (if buying the Sani and Zaff Shop Upgrade reward from Gypsy Aris, which will allow you to buy spider silk from Zaff's shop) None 40 Zemomarks
The Moo-er of All Bombs When fighting Zemouregal in Curse of Arrav, damage him at least five times with exploding cows. After destroying all portals lure the cows to Zemouregal. If you're having trouble with the zombies, in particular the New Varrock Guard zombies, run around the arena until they stop going after you.

Elite notesEdit

  • Dark Imperatorment - The Loarnab display has a red button next to it, simply go through all four options to complete the task.
  • Steel, Stud or Silk Salute - The fastest method is to purchase the Sani and Zaff Shop Upgrade reward from Gypsy Aris, then simply reset the quest and buy 7 Spider Silk from Zaff's Shop. You can easily craft the full set of robes yourself using this method, no killing of guards needed. Alternatively, armour can be gained by killing New Varrock Guards. It may be fastest to use Ranged equipment to complete this task, as a Steel bar can be used to create Steel studs, which are also dropped by New Varrock Guards. The Coif can also be made immediately without the need for any Steel studs.

Elite rewardsEdit

  • 200 Zemomarks total
  • Varrock armour's benefits affect almost any furnace.

TriviaEdit

  • "Bank-Z" is a play on the name of "Banksy", a notorious British graffiti artist.
  • After vandalising the portraits of Zemouregal, the player may comment on the artworks, which is following the format from the Instant Art-Critique Phrase Generator.
  • The "They had a Gudrun" task refers to "Gudrun", a central NPC from the Gunnar's Ground quest, which replaced the Romeo and Juliet quest.
  • During the "A Cat's Bane" when first talking to Grumps, your character says: "You don't have to go home, but you can't stay here." This could be a reference to the song "Closing Time".
