The Quest List, also called the Quest Journal, is a panel of the game interface. This journal shows the complete list of quests. Since 19 September 2012, the list was located in the Noticeboard, but it has since been moved to the Adventures tab.
Sorting feature[edit | edit source]
On 25 February 2009, the Quest List was upgraded with the sorting feature, and on 26 November 2013, options were added. The ability to sort the list by length was added on 4 December 2017. On 11 February 2019, more sorting options were added, including the ability to sort by timeline, combat difficulty, starting area, release date, or quest series. The sorting feature enables members to sort quests based on:
- Combat Difficulty
- Release Date

Difficulty[edit | edit source]
The list is sorted based on the difficulty of each quest:

- Medium to Long
- Long to Very Long
- Very Long
- Very, Very Long
Release Date[edit | edit source]
Groups quests by their year of release and sorts them by their exact release date.
Ages[edit | edit source]
This list groups quests by the age they take place in. Quests within each category are sorted by their release date.
- Fifth Age
- Sixth Age
Timeline[edit | edit source]
Quests are listed with rough chronology and their difficulty in mind and divided into several groups representing player character's path in the world.
- World Guardian
Series[edit | edit source]
Quests are grouped by quest series they belong to in rough chronological order. Due to the technical limitations quests are assigned to only one series even if they are considered to belong to more than one.
- Temple Knight
- Odd Old Man
- Elemental Workshop
- Enchanted Key
- Cave Goblin
- Wise Old Man
- Void Knight
- Dwarf (Red Axe)
- Elf (Prifddinas)
- Return of the Gods
- Sliske's Endgame
Filters[edit | edit source]
Quest list features three filters that allow to hide quests that are not relevant for the player at certain stage. At the top of the quest list are three checkboxes, "Hide done", "Recommended" and "Can complete".
- Hide done - hides already completed quests. If all quests in certain subcategory have been completed, the title of that subcategory is hidden as well.
- Recommended - displays quests that are recommended to players due to their usefulness or quality. All quests released since 2012 are qualified as recommended.
- Can complete - hides quests that players cannot complete due to missing certain requirements. This does not include membership requirement for free players.
Previously, instead of "Recommended" and "Can complete", Quest List featured filters called "Filter 1", "Filter 2". Clicking on "Filter 1" allowed players to view all quests which were not otherwise filtered, or only view the recommended quests for their levels. By clicking on "Filter 2", the quests that players did not have the requirements to complete were sorted out of the list.
When filtering feature was first introduced, players were unaware of the changes made to the Quest List, and noticed that some quests were missing from their list. This could be fixed by unchecking the filtering options, as the default setting was to filter quests that players were unable to start. This also happened with the release of Runescape Mobile. This was because some people were limited to Mobile for various reasons, Osrs mobile was released first, and the changes were not introduced there.
Set Active[edit | edit source]
In the Quest interface (Overview or Quest Journal), the player may choose to make the current quest the "active quest". This means that, as far as possible, the minimap and world map will be highlighted in the next locations that the quest requires. If the player has not yet started the quest that has been activated, the map highlight will indicate the quest starting location.
Quest points[edit | edit source]
At the bottom of the journal, the number of quest points obtained out of the total amount possible is displayed.
Journal[edit | edit source]
Clicking on a quest name shows a Quest Overview (for quests that haven't been started) or quest journal (for quests in progress or finished). Depending of quest progress the quest journal contains a list of requirements and information about starting the quest or a summary of what the player has already done in the quest and how to progress further with list of rewards upon completion. Overview includes the following informations at all times:
- How and where to start the quest
- The required and recommended quests, skill and combat levels, and items
- Informations about quest series (including which quest it is in the series), age the quest is set in, difficulty, combat warnings and estimated length
- Depending on the quest a note about voice-acting and being set in the past (Fifth Age)
Useful Journals[edit | edit source]
After completing certain quests, the Quest journal will give new information.
- Buyers and Cellars - Shows the log and rewards of completed Capers (the same as a normal quest) and the requirements of the next Caper.
- The Fremennik Trials - Shows your Fremennik name.
- The Hand in the Sand - Tells you when you can collect sand from Bert again.
- Tears of Guthix - Countdown until players are allowed to access to the D&D again.
- Rag and Bone Man - See the Wishlist following the quest. Also shows which bones you have in your bank or inventory and how prepared they are.
- Fur 'n Seek - See the wish list following the quest. Also shows which bones you have in your bank or inventory and how prepared they are. Also, if both the Rag and Bone Man and Fur 'n Seek wishlists are complete, when you can next fight the Skeletal Horror
- Wanted! - See your current White Knight rank.
