Proof that quests aren’t just a series of tasks to do
Sure, you can just do quests for the rewards. Some rewards are too good to pass up, even if the quest itself is boring. However, enjoying this little aspect of the game enhances the fun you can get from playing the game. So here are a handful of the best stories in OSRS, worth spending some OSRS gold on supplies for them.
Elf Series (specifically Underground Pass)
As a whole, the journey through untangling the mystery and conspiracy behind the elven royalty is a wild ride. Though about half of the players would disagree, the Elf quest series is one of the best stories in the game. It’s filled with intrigue as you start spotting threads and unraveling plots, all culminating in starting a rebellion against the royals.
Special mention goes to Underground Pass, which many players praise the writing for it. Even if it is a little difficult or tedious, they still name it as their favorite. Of course, not everyone will agree to this due to different preferences. To complete this quest series, one must go through Mourning’s End II. That quest does not endear itself to anyone, and it’s one of the most difficult quests in the game. Not many players can get through it without a guide.
This quest tasks you, the player and Gielinor adventurer, to find the missing 10th squad of the King of the Northern Gnomes. The trail leads to Ape Atoll and a deeper mystery to what is really happening. Monkey Madness I is a milestone quest, and many players consider it one of the best quests.
The quests that come after continue the story but also ramp up the difficulties. Monkey Madness II closes it off, but you’re sure to have spent some OSRS GP preparing or making up for losses. It does open up some training opportunities and other rewards. That, along with a good conclusion to the story, makes it worth doing.
Players would do this quest even if it has a bad story if only to get access to the Ancient Magicks Spellbook. Fortunately, it does have a pretty good story, shedding a bit more-light on the God Wars and what happened.
The quest itself is quite difficult, especially with the threat of the Stranger who could pop up at any time. Sure, he’s only a threat while you’re carrying a diamond, but still. You never know when he’ll appear, and you can’t ask for help killing him. On the bright side, if you’re successful in defeating him, he won’t appear again.
Of the Pirate questline, Rum Deal and The Great Brain Robbery gets the most mentioned. These are more lighthearted and humorous than the other quests here, and it’s a welcome break. Smile or giggle at the witty dialogue or laugh at the absurdity of the events.
They’re also easier than all other quests listed above, rating only at ‘Experienced’ at the highest. That means they’re not too long and won’t tax your wallet enough for you to buy OSRS gold. You can do them as a breather from the heavy, somber, and more serious quests.
My Arm’s Big Adventure
Pun aside, your arm did not separate and gain sentience to have an adventure. You’ll help out My Arm, a young troll, as he tries to prove he’s grown up. He wants to grow goutweed but a Giant Roc is not taking his attempts too well.
Help him through his quest to grow the weed, and meet other interesting characters such as Drunk Dwarf’s Left Leg. You’ll also witness him punch the village’s strongest warrior and a few other interesting feats. If you’re interested to see more of My Arm, there’s a follow-up quest ‘Making Friends with My Arm’ which deals with his love life and a task to kill the Wise Old Man of Draynor. All in all, a good quest for a few laughs.
While none of these quests will reward players with anything as good as a Twisted Bow, experiencing these stories is worth it unlike buying OSRS gold for sale. Also, not everybody will agree to this list, and that’s okay. As people, some of our preferences might match with others and clash with the rest. Otherwise, there could be those that are indifferent and won’t care either way.
At any rate, you’re bound to have a favorite story or quest, and that’s great! Keep enjoying OSRS and your adventures throughout Gielinor!
