mind rune problems[edit source]

I have 56 rc and am crafting 140 mind runes at the alter, as per the diary. I have tried twice and the task will not update. Is this a glitch? --Asbduhas 05:40, November 18, 2009 (UTC)

lighting a bullseye lantern[edit source]

Anyone know if a sapphire lantern will work for this task? --nekobawt 23:00, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

  • JAGEX must of updated this as I just extinguished then relit a sapphire lantern and the Achievement Diary accepted this, though I am unsure about the Emerald Lantern, I edited the information on the sapphire lantern and left the Emerald Lantern Information as is. --122.107.47.110 06:53, 9 August 2009 (UTC)D1612

Inaccurate edit[edit source]

"Due to Yew or Magic Seed required to complete this diary, prices quickly rose even before the achievement diary was released."

They rose due to the quest "while guthix sleeps" not because of the achievement diary. I know because i was one of the people making the prices rise ;)

Lol...Think about it, If prices rose before it was released, how would they even know it would be needed? >.< Santa hat.png Powers38 おはようヾ(´・ω・`) 01:20, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

I'm quite sure what the anonymous user meant above was that the yew and magic seeds rose because people grew yew and magic trees to train farming for the 65 farming requirement needed for while guthix sleeps. C.ChiamTalk 10:29, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

assist system[edit source]

can it really be used?Proselyte hauberk.png floppyc5 Ancient talisman.png 02:27, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

This is technically a "bug", where the "official knowledge base" article states that you can't (in this case "shouldn't") use the assist feature in order to complete this portion of the achievement diary. Use at your own risk.... as sometimes Jagex punishes players who deliberately exploit known bugs. --Robert Horning 14:11, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

sweetcorn not working?[edit source]

I planted sweetcorn, made it grow, watered it regurarly, had a scarecrow... Still had no Achievement diary update. There are people with me who have the same problem. Anyone any idea what I done wrong? Therealmagicrune 13:46, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

I had the same problem but after my Sweetcorn grew a little bit, I dug out and re-planted the Scarecrow which worked. Hope that helps! Quest point cape.png ThatOneGuy Quest point cape.png 13:50, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
Okay thanks i'll try. Have to get more seeds though... Luckily Vinesweeper can give 3 sweetcorn seeds in 2 minutes. Therealmagicrune 13:53, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
Clearly there is a proper sequence to follow, but I am not sure of it. A friend of mine had to re-plant 4 times to hit the right sequence, yet I got it on the first try. My order: I weeded, composted, and planted a herb seed (probably useless, but I was in the neighborhood so I wanted to max my farming xp). I weeded, composted, planted corn, then watered in the east plot. I weeded, composted, planted corn, then watered in the west plot. Last, I weeded and planted my scarecrow in the flower plot. I got the task completion messaged immeadiately. Hatchenator 13:57, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
I also had the same problem. It turns out that you have to plant the scarecrow WHILE the corn is growing, not before. Plant the sweetcorn, water it, and wait for the first growth spurt. Then plant the scarecrow, and the task will be complete. You don't even need to wait for the corn to completely grow.

Or you could do what the two people above me did, who I conveniently had edit conflicts with. >.<  Tien  14:00, 10 December 2008 (UTC)


This seems to have changed now. I already had a scarecrow there and all I had to do was plant the sweetcorn seeds. 22:42, 18 December (UTC)

66 Runecrafting Spicy stews? or Assist system[edit source]

I assume that any stat boost won't work for the lvl 70 prayer for the hard tasks, but will a spicy stew work to get lvl 66 runecrafting for the 196 air runes? Or for any of the other skill requirements?  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Noble fauf (talk).

Actually, stat boosts might just work for prayer. I need to check, but you might want to try out the Spa facilities at Oo'glog (requires As a First Resort... quest to be completed). I need to try that out at least. It seems like this might not work, but it is worth trying.
As for the runecrafting stat boost.... you might want to have somebody "assist" you in the effort (not using the skill assist feature, however). It requires eating the stew, trading the bowl for some rune essence, and crafting the runes in a short period of time before the effects wear off. An alternative would be to bring a small ess pouch, eat the stew, drop two ess + bowl, drop the pouch, empty the pouch, drop the pouch, then grab the two ess to quickly craft the runes. Both sound rather complicated to me.
Either that or bring a beast of burden with you that carries the stews, where you do an ess drop, eat the stews, then grab the ess real quick. Just some ideas worth trying.
The point is you have to have 28 essence at the same time in order to make it work properly. --Robert Horning 01:18, 14 December 2008 (UTC)
It works i did it myself at 61 runecrafting what i did was i made orange spicy stew at falador bank had the stew and 27 essence in inventory then summoned an abbyssal pet too store 1 extra essence (a normal beast of burden cannot hold pure essence or a stew that has had spice added too it because the spiy stews are untradable). When i got to the altar i drank the stew checked my stats page to see if i got 66 runecrafting. if i didnt i just ran bank to falador bank to make another stew. eventually i did get 66 runecrafting i dropprd the bowl and withdrew the extra pure essence from my pet and crafted 196 air runes. I edited the main article hope you dont mind. So you could also have a friend waiting for you at the altar to trade the empty bowl for an extra essence when you get 66 runecrafting from the stew if you dont have the summoning level to summon an abbysal pet.--Teblin1 18:09, 21 December 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for the feedback! I'm glad to see that this works. --Robert Horning 01:12, 22 December 2008 (UTC)
According to a recent edit made by Ippy97 the assist system DOES work can anyone else confirm this? I heard that the assist system did work on this part of the diary on the first day the diary was released but jagex fixed it so assist couldnt be used the day after.--Teblin1 16:59, 24 December 2008 (UTC)

Volatile Hammer[edit source]

I crafted the limbs with my Volatile hammer, the sound "sounded" and it said I completed a task but the Diary itself wont accept that. So just use a normal Hammer.Pith helmetDuckmartins 22:14, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

PS Now I crafted another limbs (5 with the Volatile) and its still not counting, bug report time!Pith helmetDuckmartins 22:20, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

Explorer's Ring Used?[edit source]

Ive recently been runecrafting with my Explorers Ring. I have below 66 runecrafting and managed to make 166(?) air runes. After looking through the article, I wasnt able to find this mentioned. Not 100% sure if this is a usable method as cannot try it till Christmas. If someone would like to try, note that it takes a couple loads as the Explorer's Ring's boost is random. Thanks Monkey139 23:00, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

My Apologizes, I mistook the number. Please ignore this section :|--Monkey139 23:09, 19 December 2008 (UTC)

Family Crest[edit source]

The article does not mention who to speak to change your family crest

Medium Task: Skill needed 46 summoning???[edit source]

Do you need 46 summoning to complete the medium tasks or is it just a mistake? It is only written at the top, but not where there is written what todo --Prayer-icon.pngTyiloTalkQuest.png 19:18, December 1, 2009 (UTC)

How do I make my own articles?[edit source]

Can someone tell me how I can make my own articles on Runescape Wiki?

Killing Black Knights[edit source]

I was killing them and it didnt update my diary. Any help?

You need to do Wanted (quest).

Minimum level for hard Task lamp[edit source]

Could anyone add the information of what the minimum level is, that one must have to gain experience in that skill from the hard task rewards lamp? Stormpride 10:41, April 25, 2010 (UTC)

56 Runecrafting[edit source]

as we all know, you can now make double runes without having the proper level. So, is it possible to achieve making 140 mind runes at once without having 56 runecrafting? Could I do it at 54 runecrafting? Metapig 22:10, June 11, 2010 (UTC)

Yes it is possible to do at level 54 with boosts, as explained in the table description.
The practicalities of doing this make it reasonably hard to do, since you have to teleport to the altar, drop an essence, remove 2 essence from a pouch, drop the pouch and then pick up the essence from the floor and craft the rune. This means that at this level you have to time the boost so that it will not run out by the time you do all this, which using the Oldak method is difficult seeing the boost is random and requires some conversation. Spicy stews may be a safer bet if you can be bothered to take the time to make them and get a good boost. Otherwise it may be worth getting to 55 runecrafting and then using a +2 boost from Oldak, this makes it a bit easier. Of course, if you're question was only theoretically I apologise for the rambling. Henneyj 01:05, June 12, 2010 (UTC)

Well, i think i might as well get 56 runecrafting then. :) Metapig 15:32, June 12, 2010 (UTC)

Elite task rewards[edit source]

In addition to the mentioned rewards, I received 12800 coins. Can someone confirm this? Also might have received coins for completing Varrock Elite tasks. Not sure about that as I disconnected when Vannaka asked, if I want to have my rewards in bank or inventory.

Kunelius 19:28, January 18, 2011 (UTC)

do you have to be a member to recieve the shield from red beard?

Yes. Ts4kNfA.png 05:39, July 3, 2011 (UTC)

farming amulet[edit source]

i cant find sarah the one who sells farming things who i have to buy a farming amulet for falador tasks. the tasks told me to go to north of port sarim but i cant never find her  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 76.168.36.182 (talk) on 05:00, 2011 August 27 (UTC).

There's a farm between Falador and Port Sarim, just east of the Clan Camp, it's quite impossible to miss it, that's where she lives. My contributionsTHARKONSignatures I made 09:10, August 27, 2011 (UTC)

Rune mysteries quest not actually necessary in some cases[edit source]

If you have finished Burthorpe tasks up to the point where you are knighted, you can complete Making My Mind Up - without finishing the Rune Mysteries quest. I'm not sure how to state this in the table though. This is the same with all the other tasks which require Rune Mysteries, like Slippery When Wet in Lumbridge/Draynor Tasks and Essential Facilitator in Varrock Tasks and The Essence of Magic in Ardougne Tasks. Leave me a message :) Annarelda Hiscores 13:02, April 15, 2012 (UTC)

By the point where you are knighted, I mean the task Arise, Hero. Leave me a message :) Annarelda Hiscores 13:05, April 15, 2012 (UTC)
Hmm, how about this: Requires Rune Mysteries or Arise, Hero My contributionsTHARKONSignatures I made 22:28, April 16, 2012 (UTC)

brown apron[edit source]

the brown apron not being needed i think is a falador 3 not 4 reward... i only have 3 not the elite and remembering the squire saying i could when i reached it.  Magic.png  Hailfire Talk HS Farming.png 08:53, May 10, 2012 (UTC)

Incomplete[edit source]

a task needs to be added, actually quite a few need added but ill give you a start with Ice To Icy 174.126.112.160 06:30, July 13, 2014 (UTC)Jacob

White lily seeds trade?[edit source]

Ability to trade white lily seeds (up to 50 per day) for 100 Farming experience each can be done after hard tasks but is mentioned undeer elite rewards. this page is correct https://runescape.wiki/w/White_lily_seed 97.125.193.71 01:34, April 7, 2018 (UTC)

It's fixed now. :) Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 08:08, April 18, 2018 (UTC)

Error On Mudskip the Light Fantastic[edit source]

The Mudskip the Light Fantastic entry has the word 'altar' misspelled. WiggleCat (talk) 05:13, September 19, 2018 (UTC) Fixed it, nevermind. WiggleCat (talk) 05:16, September 19, 2018 (UTC)

Easy Achievement: Making My Mind Up[edit source]

This is incorrectly marked as a members achievement, when it isn't. Astralwalkrr (talk) 20:06, 25 February 2019 (UTC)

Fixed it, for future reference, the table on this page is automatically generated based on the info from each page of an individual achievement, in this case, all you need to do is go to Making My Mind Up and edit it to change members = Yes to members = No. :) Farming-icon.png Salix of Prifddinas (Talk) Prifddinas lodestone icon.png 14:49, 26 February 2019 (UTC)
