God Emissaries


After the events of The World Wakes, the Gods are returning to RuneScape. Each God has an Emissary that the player can talk with to join their faction. Emissaries assign the player various jobs to prepare their faction for the coming of the Gods and offer a number of useful rewards for your time. Players that do not wish to side with a particular god can join the "Godless" faction. Each God Emissary will talk to the player about their God and their aims within RuneScape so the player can make an informed choice.

Simply talk to an Emissary to join their faction after confirming your choice. You allegiance can be changed at any time by talking to a different God Emissary, all your progress with the God Emissary is preserved when changing factions so switching does not mean the content has to be replayed. See below for the locations of each emissary, job descriptions and rewards.

After allying yourself with a God Emissary and being awarded a God Banner, the player can complete a number of tasks to aid their cause. These are split into Combat, Skilling and Exploration tasks, which can be completed in any order. Some jobs may have skill requirements that are too high for the player, in this case the jobs can still be completed but with a reduced experience reward. The God Emissary can be contacted at any time by selecting "contact emissary" on the God Banner. This serves the same purpose as contacting them in person, so the whole set of jobs can be completed without having to return to the Emissary. Simply use the "contact emissary" function to start and complete jobs when required.

When joining a faction, the player automatically unlocks a basic God banner, the "of [Faction]" suffix (where [faction] is replaced by your chosen faction, for example "of Zaros" for the Zaros faction) and an incomplete book of the Gods.

  • Combat - Boosts Attack, Strength, Magic, Ranged and Defence by 5.
  • Skills - Boosts a chosen non-combat skill by 2.
  • Exploration - Boosts Agility by 5.

Additionally, the player obtains a god-themed relic helm that has tier 60 hybrid stats. More pages are added to the book of the Gods as jobs are completed.
