Karamja Tasks

This minigame is very dynamic, involving different levels of tasks. Because of this, the minigame risk ratings are given in the task summaries (found at the beginning of the Easy, Medium, Hard and Elite task listings).

 

Introduction

The Karamja Tasks contains tasks that can be completed by low, medium, high, and elite level players, so anybody can play!

What to wear is for you to decide, using your best judgment. For example, if you were going to fight a monster you would want armour and weapons. However, if you do not plan to do anything involving fighting and will be in a safe area, then lightweight clothing is suggested. (For more information on monster fighting, view the guides in our Monster Hunting guides.)

In general, Jagex allows players to use stat boosting items (such as potions, pies, ales or Evil Dave's stew) to increase a stat to do a task. However, player assist does not work.

In the task menu, you will see six recommended tasks from the Karamja area. To view the entire list of tasks, click Open Task List. If you click on an individual task, it will bring up more information on the task. All the tasks are listed further down in this guide.

Each time you finish a task, you will get a message in the top central part of your window stating that you've completed a task. Open the Task List and you'll see a small check mark next to that task. If you do not have the requirements for a task, a small lock will appear in the corner of the task. Once you have completed all the tasks of this region or you do not have requirements for any of the other tasks, activities will appear in the task list.

You can perform the tasks in any order and at any level (Easy, Medium, Hard or Elite) that you wish. To help players plan effectively, a map showing the location for each task is available. It shows a code number for each task, which matches the lists in this guide. Check the map, bring what you need and you're on your way. Enjoy exploring all that tropical Karamja has to offer!

With a knife and some logs in your inventory, click on a pit to cover it. Then poke a horned graahk with a teasing stick (see the Hunting skill guide) so it chases you. Turn and go across the pitfall. If you are successful, the animal won't make the jump and will fall into the pit. You may take some damage from the graahk until it's caught, so you may want to bring food.
M15 "The Roots of All Evil" - Chop the vines to gain deeper access to Brimhaven Dungeon None 10 woodcutting, 875gp
Talk with Saniboch South of Brimhaven (near the pineapple plants and a few gold rocks). Pay him 875 gp to enter the dungeon. Go down the steps and cut through the vines.
M16 "Points of no return" - Cross the spiky pit using the stepping stones within Brimhaven Dungeon None 12 agility, 10 woodcutting, 875gp

The shipyard is located on the eastern side of lower Karamja, north of the glider area. Players who have begun but not finished The Grand Tree quest will need to supply the password to the NPC shipyard worker at the gate.

If you are between the quests or have done both, you can enter the shipyard with no problems. Go east out onto the docks and speak to either Trader Crew member to charter a ship. A cheap destination is Karamja (Musa Point, near the banana plantation) for only 200 gp. Full charter ship prices are listed in the Getting Around guide.
