Quest Icon Crest

Quests are groups of interrelated tasks, usually involving a storyline, that can take anywhere from five minutes to a few hours or even a few days to complete. The start locations of quests are labeled with a blue compass icon (Quest map icon) on your minimap. Once completed you can be rewarded with various xp for skills or unlocks places which are only accessible once certain quests are completed.

Quest Journal

A player's Quest Journal. Red means the quest has not been started yet. Yellow means the quest has been started but not finished. Green means the quest has been completed. Cyan (blue) means the quest has been marked on the World Map.

As of 2 June 2014, there are a total of 195 quests with 24 free and 171 members-only quests, offering a total of 353 quest points. Free players can only obtain up to 51 quest points. The last quest added to the free version of RuneScape was A Shadow over Ashdale, and the last quest added exclusively to the member's version of RuneScape was The Mighty Fall.

The 50th quest, Legends' Quest, was released on 20 August 2003[1], which was prior to the RuneScape 2 release. The 100th quest, Recipe for Disaster, is actually 10 quests in one with 8 subquests ranging from easy to very hard. The 150th quest, The Chosen Commander, was released on 17 March 2009.

Quest release dates are listed in the list of recent quests. A list of recommended members' quests can be found here.

Quest seriesEdit

Main article: List of quest series

Many quests are part of a series of quests which share a common plot-line.

Usually, progress is made in the series in a linear fashion, with each quest requiring the previous one in a sequence. There are exceptions to this linear progression, however, when a quest is involved in multiple plot-lines. Also, Jagex has reworked many of the novice quests over the years; so far over a dozen have received this treatment, some more than once.

The majority of quest series are rooted in a specific area, and their completion is often needed to access more of that area or specific features within it. For example, West Ardougne as a whole is inaccessible unless at least some progress is made in the Plague quest series.

  1. ^ Jagex. "New - Legends Quest!". 20 August 2003. RuneScape News.
  2. ^ Although 65 is the highest Farming requirement, if boosting from 62, Branches of Darkmeyer requires level 63.
  3. ^ Completion of the Fur 'n' Seek wish list requires 78 slayer.
  4. ^ While the highest combat level required to complete a quest is 100, the minimum possible level to get a quest cape at is 111, as a result of the 80 Defence requirement of The Brink of Extinction combined with the higher melee requirements of 85 Strength requirement of Birthright of the Dwarves and 79 Attack of The Mighty Fall.
  5. ^ While Guthix Sleeps is a requirement for The Ritual of the Mahjarrat, and so the latter requires 275 quest points, 270 to complete While Guthix Sleeps and 5 rewarded from completing it.
  6. ^ Blood Runs Deep requires completion of all Easy, Medium, and Hard Tasks of the Fremennik Province Tasks.

Reworks and replacementsEdit

Over time some quests became outdated and were felt to not fit in with the progression of RuneScape or the developing lore of Gielinor. These quests were reworked into updated forms or replaced with new ones.

Quest Cape of AccomplishmentEdit

Main article: Quest point cape

Players who have the maximum number of quest points are able to wear the quest point cape, a Cape of Accomplishment which can be purchased from the Wise Old Man for 99,000 coins. However, whenever a new quest is available, the cape and hood will automatically be unequipped and cannot be worn again until the player completes the new quest.

If the inventory is full upon release of a new quest, the cape and hood will be sent to the bank. If the bank is also full, the Wise Old Man will hold onto it and will return it free of charge.

If multiple sets are obtained through various methods, the Wise Old Man will only return one set if both your inventory and bank are full and the set is worn and unequipped(ON) twice. In other words, if the Wise Old Man has a set and you do not claim it and get another set unequipped and sent to the Wise Old Man, only one set will be reclaimable.

The cape does not count towards trimming Capes of Accomplishment. It does count towards cape rack limits on senior capes.

Quest iconsEdit

All quests that have a "Quest overview" window also have a unique quest icon. These are currently limited to:

These icons are displayed both in the quest overview window, and as small boxes next to quest-specific NPCs and objects. It is unknown whether all quests will eventually be renovated to have this property.
