Defender Of Varrock Quest Release

September 30, 2008 By: BRT Cj Category: Runescape News 10 Comments →

Personally I don’t like going into the wilderness for clue scrolls, let alone quests but it looks like it might give interesting rewards from the requirements needed. The grind all option I thought was already out ages ago, but I rarely do the bones at ectofuntus anyway. Regen bracelet update doesn’t really give me must interest as I’ve never had or seen one. Feel free to post your comments on the update.

Captain Rovin is eager to recruit a bold adventurer for a scouting mission to the Wilderness. There’s talk among the Varrock Guard of suspicious zombie behaviour and sightings of well-armoured zombies standing in organised formations. This isn’t normal behaviour for zombies – they’re much more likely to wander around aimlessly when left to their own devices. Could someone be controlling them?
There are tales of evil beings leading zombie armies in the past, and when they have, the city of Varrock has come under great peril, only standing firm through the brave resolve of the people and heroes of the city. This could become much more than a simple scouting mission.
“It’s a long time since I’ve written a quest and I’ve been working on this for a while now, so I’m excited about this update.
“I’ve created lots of back-story about RuneScape over the years so it’s good to have the opportunity to reveal more of it through my own quests. You may have noticed that the Legend of Arrav has some loose ends and I felt it was time to address those. I’ve tried hard to create a quest with some interesting puzzles and an exciting storyline. I hope you enjoy it.”
Paul, RuneScape Content Developer
Where to start the Defender of Varrock quest:
Talk to Captain Rovin in the north-west tower of Varrock Palace.
Requirements to complete the Defender of Varrock quest: 
Level 51 Agility
Level 51 Hunter
Level 54 Smithing
Level 59 Mining
Shield of Arrav
The Knight’s Sword
Romeo and Juliet
Demon Slayer
Temple of Ikov
The Family Crest
What Lies Below

Reading the Legend of Arrav in the Lores and Histories will give you a better appreciation of the storyline of the quest.
In Other News:
We’ve made some changes to dangerous Clan Wars fights. In such matches, you may be able to collect some of your defeated foes’ items – food, potions, runes and other ammunition – assuming you can use them in the current battle (so you can’t pick up food if the use of food has been disabled, for instance). Any such drops will affect both your and your victim’s trade limit.
We’ve expanded the range of items that you can lend to other players. These include a small amount of newer Treasure Trail items as well as some old ones, dragon spears and most rune and granite armor and weapons. To see if the item you want is lendable, check the Game Guide for more information.
The bone grinder on the top floor of the Ectofuntus temple now works in a similar fashion to the ‘Grind-x’ mechanic. Making bonemeal should now be a little easier and stop you grinding your fingers to the bone!
The bracelet of regeneration has been given some combat stats to make it more attractive to use as an item. While this makes it more expensive, the bonuses should now make this a rather good choice for some types of combat.

Summer’s End Quest Release

September 24, 2008 By: BRT Cj Category: Runescape News, Runescape quests No Comments →

I know this is a late news update but I’ve been busy lately so haven’t got round to doing the news. I’ve done this quest twice already, it seemed hard the first time but the second time was alot easier as I knew what I was doing. I’ll make a guide for this quest soon. I haven’t attempted the corporeal beast yet though. Don’t use big familiars like titans when you are luring the spirit beast into the cave, as it seems to eat it easier.


Those who have completed Spirit of Summer will know that their work is half done. The Spirit Beast has begun to tear through the fabric of reality and threatens to lay waste to RuneScape. Summer and her family can’t stop it alone, so you’re needed to confront this powerful enemy.

Brave warriors who are courageous (or foolhardy) enough to take on such a challenge will be required to venture once more into the Wilderness, crossing into the Spirit Beast’s realm. Here, you’ll be the main thrust of a devastating attack on the beast. If you hope to survive, you’ll need the Amulet of Ghostspeak, help from the spirit family, and plenty of food and run energy…


Where to start the Summer’s End quest:
Talk to Summer in the farm ruins, north-west of the Clan Wars challenge hall.
Requirements to complete the Summer’s End quest: 
Level 23 Summoning
Level 23 Woodcutting
Level 35 Hunter
Level 45 Mining
Level 47 Firemaking
Level 55 Prayer
Spirit of Summer
The ability to evade the blows of a level 700+ beast
A fairly high Hitpoints level and a higher Woodcutting level are an advantage

Access to:

Some interesting new equipment
