RS3 Hardest Quests

RuneScape 3, or RS3, is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game, and like other massively multiplayer online role-playing games, RS3 has many quests. Not only are there a ton of them in the game, but quests are one of the most important gameplay elements of the RS3.

If you want to unlock specific locations and acquire certain in-game items, you will likely have to complete a quest for them. However, jumping headfirst into the most difficult quest as a beginner is not a great strategy. To help you avoid the hardest quests in earlier stages of the game so you can complete them later, here are our picks for the hardest quests in RuneScape 3.

While Guthix Sleeps

The first quest in our list is the “While Guthix Sleeps” quest, or WGS for short. For the longest time, this quest held the title of the longest and the most challenging quest in the entire game. You can expect to spend over two hours trying to complete this quest.

To start this quest, you must speak to Radimus Erkle at the Legends’ Guide. However, you also must have completed several other quests to start the WGS quest, which includes the Defender of Varrock, Tears of Guthix, and more.

Other requirements for the WGS quest include 25 Agility, 23 Summoning, 55 Hunter, 60 Thieving, and 75 Magic. You will also need 65 Defence, Farming, and Herblore.

Recipe for Disaster

Recipe for Disaster is the 100th quest released by Jagex, which was released back on the 15th of March 2006. This quest is comprised of ten subquests, with the first one of these subquests being relatively easy. However, as you make your way onto the nest subquest, each quest becomes more challenging.

The quest is designed this way because the devs wanted this to be a quest that almost anyone can get into, but only the best and most accomplished players can complete.

To start this quest, you need to speak to the cook in Lumbridge Castle. The quest is also very long, so you will have to be ready for that. Other things required include 70 Cooking, 20 Firemaking, 176 Quest points, the ability to defeat a level 100 Black Dragon, and more.

Dimension of Disaster

For the final quest, we have the Dimension of Disaster. When ranking the hardest quests in RuneScape 3, the list is incomplete without adding this quest. Once you start this quest, you will realize why that is the case.

The quest takes place in an alternate version of Varrock called New Varrock. Along with that, the year is 170 of the Fifth Age. In this alternate universe, the player character had never existed.

What makes this quest so difficult is that you can not bring any of your items along with you to assist you in completing this quest. Not only that but there are no banks or a Grand Exchange in this alternate version of Varrock. What this means is that players will have to create or purchase equipment.

To start this quest, you must speak to Aris in Varrock. You’d be surprised to learn that there is no skill requirement to start this quest. However, you will have to complete certain other quests to be able to start this quest, all of which do have skill requirements.


All of these quests are handpicked by us based on how difficult they are to complete. If you are up for something challenging, check out one of these quests and see if you can complete them. However, make sure that you have met all the requirements before you start.
