Trivia

  • On the day the tasks came out the spoilers exclaimed: "Spoilers are wicked things, and the White Knights prefer to see them locked up for a day." However, the spoilers on the website were still locked more than 3 days after the release.
  • On the day the tasks came out, a player could be assisted by another player with a higher Runecrafting level to complete the task of creating 196 air runes in one action. Jagex noticed this the next day and changed it.
  • The Tasks symbol in the chemist's was there long before the actual tasks were released.
  • After travelling to Musa Point to complete the Medium task, a player can take a ride back on the same ship to complete an Easy Karamja task.
  • After the RuneTek 5 update there was a glitch where buying a farming amulet from Sarah did not register as a completed task. This was fixed by Jagex shortly after.
  • Before 17 September 2009, the hard task "Craft 140 mind runes simultaneously" was instead "Craft 196 air runes simultaneously". Also, the easy task of "Make an air tiara" was changed to "Make a mind tiara". They were changed when the air altar was moved to south-west of Varrock. Due to this update, the Runecrafting level needed has fallen from 66 to 56.
  • Port Sarim and Goblin Village are also part of the Falador task area.
  • One task named "I Heard You Like Mudskips,"is a reference to the internet meme "So I herd u liek Mudkipz."
  • One of the elite tasks has a slight error, missing a period at the end. This has yet to be fixed.
  • The task "mudskip the Light Fantastic" is a reference to the book "The Light Fantastic" by Terry Pratchett.
  • Upon the change into Tasks, several Varrock and Falador tasks became available to free players.
  • The task "It's Not Wabbit Season" is a reference to a Loony Tunes cartoon in which Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck are arguing over which hunting season it is, with Elmer Fudd being the hunter.
  • When doing the task "Looking Spiffy For Sir Tiffy", should you use Goblin Salute instead of the normal one, he will say "That's a very strange gesture, Name."
  • The task "These aren't the coins you're looking for" is a reference to Star Wars (episode 4), when Obi-wan tells storm troopers "These aren't the droids you're looking for."
  • The task "A Knight in the Darkness" is a reference to at least two things. The Bible, at John 1:5, says "The light shineth in the darkness and the darkness consume it not." The Rocky Horror Picture show, a midnight movie with a large cult following, has a song with very memorable lyrics "There's a light in the darkness."
  • The tasks "When this Cavern's A-Rockin'" and "You'd Best Come A-Cookin'" are a reference to the phrase "When this (room or vehicle)'s A-Rockin', Don't come A-Knockin'".
  • The task "I Swear I Heard It Scream" could be a reference to the band "Screaming Trees".
  • The task "I've Changed My Mind!" used to need the quest "Wolf Whistle" as a requirement but due to an update no longer needs it.
  • The task "A String and a Flare" could be a reference to the 1944 movie "Wing and a Prayer"
  • The task "Blinded with Science" is probably a reference to the 1982 new wave song "She Blinded me with Science" by British musician Thomas Dolby.
