Quest seriesEditEdit

Main article: List of quest series

Many quests are part of a series of quests which share a common plot-line.

Usually, progress is made in the series in a linear fashion, with each quest requiring the previous one in a sequence. There are exceptions to this linear progression, however, when a quest is involved in multiple plot-lines. Also, Jagex has reworked many of the novice quests over the years, accelerating the process this year, with over a dozen quests reworked, some more than once.

The majority of quest series are rooted in a specific area, and their completion is often needed to access more of that area or specific features within it. For example, West Ardougne as a whole is inaccessible unless at least some progress is made in the Plague quest series.
