The RuneScape Road Trip was a series of mostly members-only events that had taken place during May of 2014 and 2015. Players are able to speak to Challenge Mistress Fara or Heriau to receive a road trip journal, which contains 20 tasks that may be completed during the month of May.

In 2014, tasks ranged from completing minigames, such as Heist and Cabbage Facepunch Bonanza, to smithing a stack of bars. In 2015, tasks ranged a gambit of styles consisting of skilling, combat, social and minigame related feats, and other miscellaneous tasks. Rewards for both years included experience lamps, the cosmetic hiker outfit, and the Partyhat Firemaking skilling animation.

Before attempting a task, it first had to be activated in the journal. Only one task could be completed per day by the player. One extra task per day could be completed, or "stamped", with the assistance of a Jagex Moderator; for a maximum of two tasks per day. Periodically during the event, a system message announced the stamping event at a particular location on particular worlds, or a partial schedule of stamping sessions could be found in the Jagex forum.

Jagex Moderators stamped players individually at that location, provided they had selected a task in the journal for Jagex Moderator assistance. The journal did not need to be in the player's inventory for the stamping. The task was marked as completed and rewards provided as per player-completed tasks. The player receives a message in the chat box indicating the name of the JMod that stamped the task. The reward would appear in the player's inventory, though for the task of surviving 10 minutes in the Wilderness as well as the task to complete a Dungeoneering floor, the player would be notified that the reward could not be placed in the inventory and must be obtained from Challenge Mistress Fara.

Player completed tasks ended on 31 May in both 2014 and 2015. However, due to technical issues that players experienced in 2014, Jagex Moderators lead stamping sessions until 2 June that year.

Tasks[edit | edit source]

Any challenge could be skipped by spending a chit. Chits could be obtained once per day by attending a JMod event, however, there was no limit placed on the amount of chits one could use per day. This functions the same as the stamps from 2014.

Finishing a task yourself or via a Chit gives the messages:

  • You have completed a RuneScape Road Trip task!
  • You have been given a reward lamp!

Finishing a task in the Wilderness, inside the dungeons of Daemonheim, or with a full inventory will not allow the lamp to appear in your inventory and instead give the message:

  • You have been given a reward lamp, but you cannot collect it now. It can be recovered from Challenge Mistress Fara in Burthorpe.

RuneScape Road Trip - Shantay Pass to Sophanem.png
  1. ^ The May task could be activated before fighting the last monster of the Slayer task.
  2. ^ The head, body, legs, feet and glove slots need to be filled; e.g. Mime clothing or Zombie outfit. Does not work with H.A.M. or builder's outfits.
  3. ^ There are seven bridges. Only works with the Dance, Headbang, Jig and Twirl emotes.
  4. ^ Works with any type of logs.
  5. ^ Making cannonballs, smithing inside Daemonheim, or smithing Burial Armour does not count.
  6. ^ Pure essence also works.
  7. ^ The task could be completed after joining a game part way through, as long as you stay to the end
  8. ^ At the Shantay Pass, you need to click on "Go through Shantay Pass"; just running through doesn't count. Enchanted water tiara counts as a water source. You may walk. Desert robes can be worn.
  9. ^ Paterdomus is west of Canifis. The graveyard is north of the temple.
  10. ^ This journal task must be set to active before entering the wilderness. The reward for the task must be obtained from Challenge Mistress Fara.
  11. ^ It's easiest to feed a duck in the pond, since it doesn't move as much. Equip a bow without ammunition to avoid accidentally killing it. It may also help to move the inventory box to be close to the duck to reduce cursor movement. A good place to find ducks is the Fisher Realm.
