Top Ten Hardest Runescape Quests


The Top Ten

1 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

Takes forever and requires almost total mental focus. I'm glad it's a quest though, gives higher level players something to do other than make billions of gp

2 Sheep 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:

This quest is annoying because it is extremely easy but when easy things go wrong it triggers you very very hard

3 Summer'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!

I died at least 10 times until I did this quest right :/ It sound that it will be very easy, but it's not!

So much magic...

4 Mourning's End pt 1+2

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 puzzle never seemed to end as well as it being such a boring puzzle. Then when you fail the agility bit 5 times in a row, tops the quest of as the worst and most boring quest I've done. (Part 2)

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

So much puzzle... ugh.

5 Tutorial 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

Nibba please

6 Monkey 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!

Took me a little over three hours without dying once, you constantly have to go back to varock, back to gnome stronghold, back to karmja, back to ape toll, back to the hangover then repeat over and over.

7 Desert 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.

The battle in the icy zone was actually challenging, which is pretty rare. The locked chest took me about 50 lockpicks and was exceptionally infuriating. The pyramid actually wasn't as bad as the chest, but these 2 mainly luck based things make this a memorable and annoying quest.

Requirements for this quest, plebz

8 Underground 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.

Kept falling took forever this should be higher up and so should desert treasure!

9 Recipe 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

If u have a kitten instead of a cat and u lost your greegrees and m'speak amulet this quest becomes comparable to hell and eternal inferno.

10 Nomad'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

This quest is undoubtedly the hardest, and the boss is rediculous, on the edge of broken. When I did it, the only reliable damage I could deal was from kyatt special attack and ruby bolts, and if you step away from the pillars you get eaten up by nomad's attacks.

The Contenders

11 Legends Quest

This quest is the GOAT.

12 Elemental Workshop III

This quest is difficult or the most difficult because of the puzzle that takes nearly an hour to finish alone.

Thanks to that ridiculous puzzle, this quest was left unfinished for almost 7 years...

The puzzle is always making me nuts

14 Ritual of the Mahjarrat

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

The jungle intro is absolutely terrible. Hands-down the least fun I've ever had in my ten years playing Runescape. Hiding behind cover only works about half of the time, and if you misclick at all, you automatically fail. Move your pinky toe out from behind cover for.00001 seconds and you'll take roughly 9 million damage and have to start over. No chance to dodge, no taking the damage and moving forward, and half of the time your character decides to practice their dance routine and run back and forth in a completely nonsensical direction. Oh yeah, the entire time this is happening, you will be gangbanged by the ugliest, most obnoxious-sounding mouth-breathing gorillas to ever walk the face of Gielinor. I think I would rather chew broken glass than have to do this again. Completely ruined my enjoyment of the remainder of the quest. 1/10 for fun value, 9/10 for difficulty.

15 Cook's Assistant

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 :(

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?

Instructions to make cake unclear. Solo'd Corp and got ely drop

16 Broken Home

Absolutely hate this one. Even with a guide this takes forever and gets really repetitive. Almost gave up, but I pulled through after 2 hours in that hellhole while looking at a guide. Was so glad to finally finish, then I saw that there were additional challenges requiring you to do it in 37 minutes. Sigh I really don't want to go back...

Hard to do the challenges. Unless you're Michael Scofield and have the map of the home tattooed onto yourself.

Took forever, very confusing

17 Monkey Madness II

This quest made me rage the most haha - Acid_Bubble

Gorilla's were Aids
Glough was Aids
Nieve's death was Aids
Kruk was Aids
Everything was Aids

18 One Small Favour

I throw up every time I think of it. All the favours you have to do, for some wood. Kill me.

Doing this quest is what I imagine dying feels like!

19 The Temple at Senntisten
20 Derek'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?

, I literally rage quit.
