Best Runescape Quests


The Top Ten

1 Blood Runs Deep

Really atmospheric and with surprising depth

One of the most balanced quests. A perfect mixture of combat, puzzles, and story. Also, the best example of character depth in Ruenscape. - vahlkin

This is more than a quest, it's an experience. A masterpiece.

2 While Guthix Sleeps

The cinematics and the music the quest was absolutely perfect. The quest had a lot of emotional moments, and plenty of puzzles. Combine that with some of the best rewards you could get from a quest at the time and nothing comes close to the journey many players had on this quest. Truly Runescape at it's finest. It may be long but ever moment will leave you on the edge of your seat, even when the quest is over.

Builds up and up to that scene in the Wilderness where all your friends that you have built up over a load of quests get killed. Then you still lose - the villain Lucien gets the most powerful object ever.

And it's brilliant.

Slow and very long. However, the storyline is excellent and one of a kind. Plus, it was the first grandmaster quest. - vahlkin

This quest beats blood runs deep by a million

3 Nomad's Requiem

An amazing combat-oriented quest with one of the hardest bosses in the game. - vahlkin

4 Underground Pass

The most memorable quest. Very interesting.

A very dark and suspenseful quest. Extremely epic and haunting, filled with great puzzles. - vahlkin

Yes I liked underground pass a lot, I think it's great they based a whole quest on just an underground well... Pass! Though I hated having to go back theough it again and again in regicide.

5 The Chosen Commander

A truly amazing quest, the combat was great and the story was excellent. My personal favorite quest.

Her name is Zanik, she is your company during the quest and at the end you'll regret it's over.

Zanik is one of the best characters in Runescape. This quest - vahlkin

6 One Piercing Note

A very amazing, sad storyline.

Very well written and programmed. A suspenseful journey that draws you in with its excellent music and voice acting, and leaves you feeling ultimately satisfied at its conclusion.

Amazing sound quality. The choir was great, the voice acting was great, etc. Also, the suspense was intense. The twists were very unexpected. - vahlkin

Absolutely loved this quest. It was a very compelling story line! Made me actually cry in the end :) I recommend this to everyone. Note: it is a "novice", member quest.

7 The Ritual of the Mahjarrat

Best quest ever, hard to get the quest points required to do it but it's definitely worth it in the end, the rewards are amazing and the story line is brilliant, 10/10 best quest, if you haven't already done it, then go do it, it's AMAZING

Such a good quest. I just can't wait for the next one to come out! But obviously that has to also be a grand master, thereby requiring two grand master quests to be completed in order to do.

Sequel to While Guthix Sleeps, where the events of multiple Quest Series' combine. It brings together the Mysteries of the Mahjarrat series, the Arrav Quest series, and some others. Epic battles, great rewards. All in all, plenty to enjoy.

An epic battle between Majarrat and a face to face meeting with the Dragonkin. - vahlkin

8 Monkey Madness

It's really intense and you get the ability to transform and talk to monkeys which is fun because there is rarely a quest that is close to being the same. Also after the quest, you gain access to some really good training locations with an altar

I hope they never replace it.

A classic Runescape quest. - vahlkin

9 Dragon Slayer

As a F2P player, killing Elvarg was the greatest achievement a n00b like me ever experienced. Gives the dragon slaying knight in shining armor kind of look in my character.

Oh My God that's was so much fun too bad I don't go on anymore

Love it too

10 Recipe For Disaster

A very special quest. The 100th Runescape quest is something unique and great fun. - vahlkin

The Contenders

11 Desert Treasure

A wonderful quest, it was this quest that had granted me use to the 'Ancient Magicks' spell book, and I found this quest extremely fun.
It is by no means on the same level as 'While Guthix Sleeps, ' but ultimately for moderately leveled players (Level 100-150) will find this quest very fun, and even easy.
Level 151+ players should be able to complete this quest with any effort whatsoever.

Great quest. Dark and gruelling with some tough bosses, all of which are of different elements which gave this quest variety and made it exciting and suspenseful. Being able to use Ancient Magicks is also great and one of the best staves in the game.

This quest is just amazing. You really get the feeling of you doing something good.

Amazing quest and unlocks Ancient Magicks

12 The World Wakes

Battle oriented quest, a lot of fun. Would do it over and over again if I could.

Emotional rollercoaster

13 The Temple at Senntisten
14 The Death of Chivalry

One of the most funny and challenging quests in f2p

15 One Small Favour

Easy Funny and Very Enjoyable. Good Rewards

I agree

16 The Branches of Darkmeyer

The characters, the background story and the music... I totally forgot I was sitting in a chair behind a computer while playing it.

Really good quest! And you've been working towards it for so long

17 Summer's End
18 Darkness of Hallowvale

I think this is a good quest because it continues the cool "vampire hunters" series and takes you into the dark "meyre ditch" ghetto where all the slaves of the vampires live!

19 Shilo Village

I agree

20 Ernest the Chicken

Cause a guy gets turned into a chicken gets the feel of a joke quest that's still quite satisfying

Because the guy gives you a whole load of feathers and eggs when you turn him back to normal

21 Kenneth's Concerns

A really unique quest a little weird but I think it was written quite well, you'd never suspect the little boy to be well... Evil, you got to protect a girl from an evil enraged little boy, you discovered more secrits of the sea slugs, overall a fun and uniquely well written quest

22 Rune Memories
23 Song from the Depths

This quest is amazing. I had shivers down my spine the whole time because of the atmospheric music and voice acting, not to mention what I felt could have been a deeper meaning. Does this quest feel allegorical to anyone else? If you interpret it to be about the "fallen woman" in the Victorian age, it's almost a spot-on narrative. The siren is the "sexually transgressive" woman whose only repentance is death, in a typically Victorian Christian way. The Raptor represents the archetypal patriarchal Victorian voice that restricted sexual expression (of women) and gender expression (again, of women) and made the era seem so austere to everyone who lived after it. It was a nice touch for the quest to quietly portray the siren in a sympathetic light by telling her story and giving the player the option to "avenge her death" as a quest reward.

I know it's unlikely that most RuneScape players will care about the Victorian era and much less so gender roles and feminism, but I couldn't ...more

24 The Fremennik Trials

The quest really introduces the player to amazing characters. I think the thing that made this quest so good is that is was similar to the best quest, one small favour.

25 Carnillean Rising

Decent story and low requirement to start. Most of all, the rewards are epic because of the 8000xp, so many items that are worth well over 300k gp total, ability to kill the Cave Wolf Matriarch again for even more items, and the ultimate Treasure Chest which allows you to bury whatever you like, in almost anywhere in RuneScape so that your friends or whoever you want can uncover it for the treasure within (this is an awesome activity for party holding). Therefore, Carnillean Rising is a must-do!

26 Mountain Daughter

One of the best quests I've done for story, explained it to 4 non RSer friends and even they loved it, catches you completely off guard at the end, no spoilers!

27 Heros' Quest

Absolutely incredible quest best in the game there is not one bad part
