The Max Guild is a partially-phased guild that is only available to players who have mastered the skills of RuneScape. It is located in Prifddinas, in the south-eastern part of the Cadarn Clan district.
The Max Guild is split into two parts. The outer part, the garden, is accessible with at least one level 99 or a wearable quest cape. There are 29 flagpoles, which players can use to unfurl a flag for each skill they have achieved level 99, and one for the quest cape. These are only visible to the individual player.
The interior is only accessible to players who have earned the max cape. The doors will repel any players who try to enter without this requirement. Inside, Challenge Mistress Heriau will give new entrants a crystal acorn that they can use to grow a crystal tree. Guild members are also able to teleport to the Max Guild using the max guild teleport or their max and completionist capes. The teleport arrives inside the garden, near to the skill portals, but it can be toggled to arrive inside the guild tower instead by talking to Elen Anterth.
Elen Anterth is inside the guild - standing near the boss portal if the tower can be accessed, and near the skill portals if unable to. While inside the tower, she sells all of the Capes of Accomplishment (except the quest cape) found in the game for 99,000 coins each, as well as the max cape for 2,673,000 coins. Chatting with her provides an option to toggle the max cape teleport between the garden and within the tower.
The Max Guild is partially-phased, in that only the player can see what flags they've unfurled, which portal locations they've chosen, and their progress of the second statue of Rhiannon. The player also does not see the door or gate opening animations for other players, only for themselves. This differs from a traditional instance as the guild is not a completely separate instance to the rest of Prifddinas, but many parts of it are player-specific.
Features[edit | edit source]
Skill portals[edit | edit source]
There are two portals inside the garden. The first one is available to all players who can enter and can be tuned to a location for free. However, a fee of 100,000 coins is required to redirect the portal to another location. The fee drops 10,000 coins for every 5 skills the player has 99 in, to a minimum price of 50,000 coins. The second portal requires the player to have at least 15 skills at level 99 in order to use. In addition, the portals can only be used if the player has the requirement to access the area; a player without level 94 Woodcutting will be unable to tune their portal to the nearest active crystal tree. The Radiant Wisp Colony teleport requires the completion of the Ghosts Ahoy quest and level 85 Divination.

Throne of Fame[edit | edit source]
The final feature of the Max Guild is the Throne of Fame. The throne acts as a combined altar and mini summoning obelisk, allowing players to fully restore their prayer and summoning points by admiring it. Possessing the completionist cape is not required to do this.
Only one player per server may sit upon the throne by right-clicking the throne and choosing "Sit". To do so the player must have earned the completionist cape. Upon sitting on the throne, all of that player's skills are boosted to 100, or 121 for Dungeoneering, Slayer, Farming, Herblore, and Invention, which lasts until the player leaves it. Upon leaving the throne, players must wait 5 minutes before attempting to sit on the throne again.
Above the throne, 8 voicestones are mounted in the wall, each representing one of the elf clans. The voicestone illuminates when the Voice of Seren is active in that district.
Other[edit | edit source]
Other features of the Max Guild tower include:
- Permanent bonfire on the south-west balcony (with a bank chest nearby; this bonfire can save logs)
- Grand Exchange clerks
- Challenge Mistress Heriau
- Decanter Rhodri Dail
The Max Guild garden also has the second statue of Rhiannon, which gains one piece each time the main statue in the Tower of Voices is completed (equal in function to the replica statue plinth for the Dahmaroc statue, but without the replica statue piece items). There are also 32 pieces to add to this statue. If this statue is completed the player unlocks the title [Name] the Statuesque. Completing this statue is also a requirement for the trimmed completionist cape.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Upon release of a new quest, players with a quest point cape will have their flag for completion of all quests set to half-mast at the Max Guild until they complete the new quest.
- For a short time after release, players who tuned their boss portals to Araxxor were unable to go through the web and had to leave the cavern, then come back for the web to work properly. Players who tuned their portals to the God Wars Dungeon were able to keep their killcount if they left via Max cape. Both of these have been fixed.
- While the bank can be accessed from the railing across the Throne of Fame, it will not restore the player's health.
