Skills Needed:
  • 31 Prayer-icon Prayer for Scorpion Catcher
Task # Description Quest start / required Skill level(s) Other requirements and details
Fleeing the Scene 1 Use the Sinclair Mansion to Fremennik agility shortcut. None 48 Agility-icon Head north just outside the fence of the mansion, at the agility shortcut log and walk past the river. Skill boosts such as summer pies will work. Note that the shortcut is behind the mansion, do not enter the mansion grounds.
It's a Slightly Magical Stick 2 Talk to Thormac the Sorcerer about making mystic staves. Scorpion Catcher None Thormac is a non-player character who lives at the top of the Sorcerer's Tower south of Seers' Village. You do not need to actually get him to enchant your staff, just talk to him about it.
King Coal 3 Transport a full load of coal to Seers' Village. None 30 Mining-icon (optional) Alternatively the coal can be taken from your bank into the nearest coal truck you can deposit into, this negates the need for 30 mining. A full load is 224 coal. The fastest method is to carry the coal to the coal trucks in the small building north of the Seers Village pub. A Coal bag can be very useful in this task.
I Can Seer My House From Here 4 Find the highest point in Seers' Village. One Small Favour None The highest point is at the top of the house with the Spinning wheel. Finishing One Small Favour is not required, but you must reach the point where you can access the roof of the building.
Mastering the Elements 5 Defeat each type of elemental in the Elemental Workshop. Started Elemental Workshop I (must own the battered key) None Defeating the earth elemental from mining will also count. So will killing a fire elemental near the dust devils in the Smoke Dungeon .
It's Only a Model 6 Teleport to Camelot. None 45 Magic-icon The Camelot teleport tablets do not work for this task; neither will a player-owned house portal.
Sniper Training 7 Kill one guard on each tower of the Ranging Guild using a regular shieldbow.

The final blow to each archer must be done with a regular shieldbow - oak shieldbow, willow shieldbow etc. will not count. This meant that you could only use bronze arrows, but now you can use more arrows, even rune. Do not speak to the advisors or the non-recommended archers may vanish.

Note that the task is not complete until after you have gone back down the ladder.

Arch Archer 8 Have the Ranging Guild competition judge congratulate you for acquiring over 1,000 Archery tickets. None 40 Ranged-icon Bring some coins for the entrance fee (200 coins per game). Players with a high Ranged level with good bonuses, may likely play about 40 games before obtaining 1,000 tickets so bring 6,000-10,000 coins with you to pay for the multiple tries it will take. Players with Level 70+ range with magic bow should be able to complete in less than 25 turns. Lower-level players may have to play closer to 100 games, so bring 20,000 coins. Alternatively, you can buy 1,000 tickets from the Grand Exchange for 9,000.
What, No Cuddly Toy? 9 Buy something from the ticket exchange in the Ranging Guild. None 40 Ranged-icon The coif is the cheapest at 12 tickets.

TriviaEdit

  • When given the poison chalice, King Arthur replies, You chose ...poorly. This is an Indiana Jones reference to the Holy grail, specifically referencing a scene in the movie The Last Crusade.
  • "Twisted Fire Starter", a hard task is named after a line in The Prodigy's "Firestarter" song.
  • On the day of release, the spoilers were: Spoilers do not fit with the Seers' desire to predict the future more... esoterically. Please check back tomorrow.
  • If a player had completed the Holy Grail quest before talking to Galahad, the player will automatically exclaim: I've returned the Holy grail to Camelot and Galahad will congratulate the player. The same exchange could happen before the tasks, as a player-chosen interaction option.
  • The medium task to teleport to Camelot entitled "It's Only a Model" references a gag from Monty Python and the Holy Grail that juxtaposes the enraptured cries of "Camelot" by the Knights of the Round Table to the trusty servant Patsy's deadpan line "it's only a model."
  • "La Morte D'Arthur" is old French for "The death of Arthur". 'Le Morte d'Arthur' is the title of a 15th century book by Sir Thomas Malory, being a compilation of the legends of King Arthur, Guinevere, Lancelot and the Knights of the Round Table much of which were taken from earlier French sources.
  • The task "All your Bass..." is a reference to an internet meme of Zero Wing's poor translation resulting in "All your base are belong to us."
  • The task "Mack Rolled" is a reference to "Rickrolling", where someone is tricked into watching Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up".
  • The task "Jute alors" is a play on words for the French expression "Zut alors", roughly translating to the exclamations "shoot" or "blast".
  • The task "It's a trap... no wait it's a pie" is a reference to when Admiral Ackbar from Star Wars Episode VI exclaimed "It's a trap!"
  • The task "Gonna need a bigger boat" is a reference to a quote from the 1975 movie "Jaws".
  • The task "Moon Raker" is a reference to the James Bond movie "MoonRaker".
  • The task "What, no cuddly toy?" is a reference to the usual prize at carnivals, where the winner of the game could win a cuddly toy.
  • For the task "King Coal" it is unknown whether or not it was intended for the amount of coal for a full load to be 224 or if it glitched due to recent updates. The description still says 120 in the event Jagex forgot to change it.
  • "King Coal" may be a reference to Nat King Cole or the British nursery rhyme "Old King Cole."
  • When claiming the rewards from the task NPCs, they still use the old values for the coal trucks when saying how much they can hold.
  • "Mastering the Elements" might be a reference to the animated series Avatar.
