Top Ten Hardest Runescape Quests

The Top Ten
1 While Guthix Sleeps

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

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.

This list brings back memories. I miss playing runescape back when it was good

Very hard with unique storyline, best quest runescape came out with

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:

Omigosh. I spent four hours poking those stupid sheep (which kept evading the incinerator and WOULDN'T GO IN). Don't even remind me of this quest.

3 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)

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.

Extremely hard, intricate and confusing puzzle and very stressful to continue defending from shades.

4 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!

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 :/

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.

Yolo

Guys your suppose to vote this, I mean. Everything about it is hard! Reading those orders that you are told to do... Never again

5 Summer's End

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

The stupid boss monster in this quest was RIDICULOUSLY hard. Way harder for me than While Guthix Sleeps was. I'd rather do WGS 10 times over than do this quest again.

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!

6 Monkey Madness

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.

The boos is easy but running through the town can be annoying

Live by the Grand Tree, die by the Grand Tree. Literally die. Hardest quest in RS.

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.

7 Desert Treasure

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.

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.

I had to use over 4 inventories of lockpicks to open the bloody chest! And lets add a part to the quest where all of your stats are constantly drained...

8 Underground Pass

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.

Most annoying quest I've completed so far, I fell over 45 times no joke. I can't imagine Regicide...

Remember this from back in the days as the hardest one.. I got lots of levels and qpointd sins then, but stil think it's the hardest boss fight

9 Nomad's Requiem

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.

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

Only quest fight that was close to Nomad was ROTM, all the others were pretty simple. Easily the hardest quest.

10 Recipe For Disaster

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.

Too many quests too many stuff to do no time 4 bull

so freaking long I still can't get the first part

The Contenders
11 Elemental Workshop III

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

Barely managed it with a video guide, I don't know how people would manage the quest without one.

Even with a guide that puzzle takes at least half an houer, if you do no fault! Without guide, it would be impossible

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

12 Legends Quest

This quest is the GOAT.

13 Ritual of the Mahjarrat

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.

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

14 Regicide

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 don't want to go through it every time

Died on traps lost zerk ring level 104

Same story with underground pass

15 Cook's Assistant

I can't see whether this is a troll or some stupid kids really are unable to finish this quest. Geez if you seriously can't beat this quest then I'm sorry to say it but runescape isn't the game for you.

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 :(

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...

First time I did this, I got lost and gave up. later, memorized the whole thing and I did finish it and got the additional rewards. Still, annoying a f to do with the stupid challenges of figuring out which room to go to next

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

My sister did this quest and took like 1-2-3 hours

17 Monkey Madness II

This quest made me rage the most haha

Totally agree. Did this quest yesterday... ohhh the ship platform... lmao that was aids.
Kruk was aids. Glough was'nt too hard actually.

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

18 Sliske's Endgame

This quest just SUCKS" all you do is talk to a few people and then spend over an hour in a maze, and then get tossed into a hard fight. honestly not that hard but you'll die a few times getting used to the fight. if you don't know how to get him into the next faze of the fight its an insta death.

Dude, the labyrinth is ridiculous. I saw the guide and thought, "Gee, it's so short. This'll be cake." Nope, very difficult to get through even with a map right next to me. This is the only quest I haven't completed yet due to the dang labyrinth.

This quest is so long and tedious. If your combat level isn't so great get ready to die a lot and bring a familiar (storage pet).

Maze is ridiculous and the boss fight is intense.

19 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!

I actually cried

20 The Temple at Senntisten

Too many quest reqs

21 The Firemaker's Curse

Even maxed, Char still gives me issues in the Dominion Tower. Had to listen to Kanye's "Stronger" to finally beat Char

22 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.

23 Birthright of the Dwarves

One of the hardest bosses in game

24 Shadow Over Ashdale

The boss is way to hard for any new player to beat. at least make it that the boss health doesn't reset each time you die because I'm not gonna waste another 2 hours to try and beat this boss only to get killed over and over again.

That end boss was a pain. Especially because I did the quest around level 10. Actually had a friend quit the game because of this quest.

Final boss quite annoying and hard

The boss is super tough

25 Dimension of Disaster

Not as bad as Recipe of Disaster, however flipping hard. I died to Agrith Naar twice, and Zemouregal 3 times before I was able to barely beat them. Come prepared, set action bar, and collect a chunk of the zemouregal coins before starting the minquests
