The Top Ten

While Guthix Sleeps
hardest quest ever really long 2 took me a day and a half and all tho's skills and requirments are hard work 2 get but it is worth it cause its fun and good rewards
I think this quest is very irritating. I could barely finish this quest. Well I didn't even finish it. Guess what... I'm very lazy.
While guthix sleep is a interesting story but its very long but it's the second longest recipe for disaster is even longer and harder because you need to complete so many quest and lots of requirements and bosses
[Newest]Very hard with unique storyline, best quest runescape came out with

2Summer's End
I found this much harder than WGS, plus the whole quest is based in the wild and I'm a rev magnet so I died a lot more than I should have
Ok, so I did every single quest up here in the top 10, but this was the only one I died in. And I didn't die once.. I died 11 times!
At the moment, I'm quite stuck on it :/. Spirit of summer gave little to no preperation for it. I have 191 quest points, and although I've done many quests, the parts with the spirit beast make it very challanging, and a real members quest if I've ever saw one
[Newest]Easy Quest, took me an hour.

3Sheep Herder
"S***! " are the only words coming out of my mouth during this quest it was a huge pain! And once I got the sheep to the fence they said "baa" and ran away it was terrible, not even worth the 4 quests points you get for completing the quest.
Gotta love how this is up there with the likes of While Guthix Sleeps and Desert Treasure, aha. That atrociously horrendous quest design. Enough said.
Definitely the hardest quest in the entire game. Just the way you have to herd those sheep! It is terrible how they put you through that misery! D:
[Newest]Easiest quest in the game

4Mourning's End pt 1+2
M. E. Pt. 1 and 2, especially are extremely irritating. For 1, it's mostly dyeing the sheep, but all of part 2 is one massive puzzle, and on top of that, you have monsters who hit frequent 100 hits on you everywhere. It's most certainly a very difficult quest.
Holy cow.. The puzzles.. Not only did you have to constantly defend from shades, you also had a hell agility course where if you fell, you pretty much had to start all over. So glad I finally finished.
The rest of the quests here are jokes, the real hardest after this one would be Elemental Workshop 3, it's literally hours of solving a puzzle ugh
[Newest]On par with Elemental Workshop 3 for hardest puzzle.

5Monkey Madness
The underground dungeon in this quest makes it living hell. IF YOU FORGET TO PRAY MELEE (which I have done once) YOU WILL DIE LESS THAN 3 SECONDS OF ZOMBIE MONKEYS HITTING YOU! The agony and long spent hours doing meaningless tasks in this quest are legendary.
poison spiders, monkey rangers, gorrillas that beat you back in jail, skeleton things... they all killed me once, wich made this a really annoying quest
so frustrating, long and boring! not too bad after the monkey talisman but I wouldent do this quest souly for dragon scimitar!
[Newest]It wasn't actually too hard for me but I haven't done that many quests so yah this one.

6Tutorial Island
I could never cook those shrimps nicely, and then the fire stopped burning. The most annoying thing ever. Also there was the bread! It took forever and ever to make, and then it got burnt! I must have smashed quite a few keyboards to pieces during that one!
Hard quest just because we all did it when we were 9 and never read the instructions on what to do, so I would spend 20 mins making fires and trying to move on w/o making that damn shrimp.

Guys your suppose to vote this, I mean. Everything about it is hard! Reading those orders that you are told to do... Never again
[Newest]Probably one of the hardest quests yet when tossing up with sheep shearer and cooks assistant. The hardest part was probably walking out the door of the tutors room. It took me ages to open it. I wonder if any of you guys also had the same problem :/

7Desert Treasure
Some parts of the quest were near suicidal, the bosses were hard and irritating, and the pyramid bit at the end was based on luck to get through, which was the most annoying of all.
A very hard quest for the some of the best combat magic in the game. Not the hardest but some parts (like the locked chest) can take your money and time away.
Really hard it took me like 3 hrs and half of that time was because of the ice troll part because of the stat draining thing:/

8Underground Pass
Most annoying quest I've done so far I fell literally a 100 times and every 3 times I fell I had to rest because those Dam soulless beings and I was saving my good food expecting a hard boss cite but nope I ran in and ended it in like 2 seconds so annoying yes but hard no
Stupid! The first part is hard enough and I had to restart the entire thing because I fell down so many times. I rage quit for an hour after that and then after the doll part it was all over for me.
Ugh, this quest is infuriating. It just takes so long, and it all takes place in the same dungeon.

9Nomad's Requiem
This is way harder than all the other quests in front of this, nomad is one tough son of a b*tch!
Nomad was easily the toughest boss I ever fought. Then again, I fought him at 90 combat without summoning and with 75 range. The time I finally beat him, I still had like 4 or 5 Saradomin Brews left.
This is the only one I haven't completed so it must be the most difficult.
You must have a BoB and super restores too defeat Nomad

10Recipe For Disaster
so freaking long I still can't get the first part
Too many quests too many stuff to do no time 4 bull

The Contenders

11Legends Quest

the agility is not fun to get


I hate falling off the bridge and having to go all the way back... plus I died by stupid traps and lost my fire cape
Stupid cave. i dont want to go through it every time

13Ritual of the Mahjarrat
What? This is a new quest, But I have seen The guide, Whoa! This Quest Breaks your God Damn Life!

14Elemental Workshop III
This quest is difficult or the most difficult because of the puzzle that takes nearly an hour to finish alone.
The puzzle is always making me nuts
Even with a guide that puzzle takes at least half an houer, if you do no fault! Without guide, it would be impossible

15Cook's Assistant
How do you get the super-large egg? I mean, its ruining the quest. I've been stuck on it for about a month now because the egg is so rare. Somebody told me I had to defeat a lesser demon. Aren't they the hardest monster in the game?
PLEASE HELP ME! I'm stuck in this quest! Where do you get the milk from? This is one of the hardest quests by far! Even harder than tutorial island! Please pm me if you know what to do :(

16Blood Runs Deep
The Dagannoth mother is a beast to kill. I have tried multiple times and no luck.
I can't come close to killing the Dagannoth mother.

17The Blood Pact
If 1 of these darn bosses weren't enough, THERE IS THREE OF THEM!

18Some Like It Cold
3 words, Submarine Battleship Ending.
If you have even the slightest bit of lag, it catches up on you in the end.
I mean hell, 250+ quest points here and I was practicaly pulling my hair out on this. Lost "died" twice!

19The Temple at Senntisten
Too many quest reqs

20Derek's Quest
So hard! I can't mine, it says, just because I don't have a pick-axe? What even are pick axes and why can't I use my hands?
