The Questing Clan of RuneScape (QC) aka "Clan Quest" is a clan that organizes all serious Questers into one community. Clan Quest's aim is to create a community of players who have completed, or strive to complete, every Quest and Achievement Diary in RuneScape. The Questing Clan as a group serve as a resource to any RuneScape Player. The clan exists to help players solve quests, complete diaries, and provide assistance to anyone who has not obtained their Quest Point Cape. Every one of its members aspires to complete (and maintain the completion of) every Quest and Task Set. Many of the community's members are avid followers of RuneScape Lore, and all are experienced RuneScape players.
- "We are not your skillers, your pvp-ers, or your merchers. We are a more elite band of RuneScape players. We are the adventurers. We are the people who write the guides that others read." -Mod Timbo's Clan Blog, August 2010.
Historically, Clan Quest has had limited interest in inter-clan conflicts. Due to this, the group has never participated in any wars or combat oriented competitions. However, due to the high caliber of its members, Clan Quest has won many competitions both Jagex hosted and within the community. The success of the clan within the global RuneScape community has rendered it a common name for winners. Clan Quest's holds no combat requirements and is notorious for not requiring regular in game participation of its members. Clan Quest brands itself as a mature group- focusing on bettering themselves in RuneScape and in the real world.

Clan Purpose[edit | edit source]
The Questing Clan of Runescape is two things: a company and a clan. Both have unique, yet overlapping purposes:
- In accordance with its function as a company, any RuneScape player who seeks aid on a quest is encouraged to enter the Clan Chat "Clan Quest" and seek assistance.
- As a clan, it seeks to provide an increase in enjoyment and ease in playing the game in the following ways:
- Provide knowledge and assistance to members on all things game related.
- Provide frequent non-mandatory events, allowing players to participate in minigames and D&D's with the clan.
- Provide 'Clan Quest unique' non-mandatory events to engage the members in social activities.
- Providing a friendly and enjoyable atmosphere with which to exchange ideas about the game.
Quest Help[edit | edit source]
The RuneScape forums get a new thread about players creating a Quest Help Clan approximately twice a week. These "cc's" normally last less than 3 days due to lack of interest or number of members, and as a result, are most often disbanded.
Clan Quest, however, has been around for significantly longer than 3 days, has over hundreds of members that own the quest cape, and continues to serve as RuneScape's 'Quest Help' clan chat channel. Any player is welcome to enter clan chat 'Clan Quest' for any quest questions they may have, and the members of Clan Quest are more than willing to help.Providing Questing assistance is and will always be the predominant goal of Clan Quest's community.
Community[edit | edit source]
Clan Quest, as well as serving as a reference cc, is also a social clan for anyone who is a "Quester." Quest cape owners are encouraged to join the cc, as Clan Quest is a community of players who share very similar interests.
- "If you like to quest, don't like guides, love lores, and consider yourself a real adventurer, come join Clan Quest" -Kappathegray (from: The Questing Clan T1 , original recruitment thread for clan quest November, 2009)
In the Runescape game, Clan Quest provides many services to encourage community activity and support for all members. Besides Quest support which is always offered, Clan Quest provides regular events, has an event team which organizes impromtu events, and the core members are always willing to assist a member in anything if help is requested.
The willingness of most of Clan Quest's members to help any other member no questions asked has earned it a formidable reputation within the Clan Community of Runescape. Individual who are bothered by trolls, have their resources crashed, die and need a grave blessing, need company in XP grinding, or any other possible types of assistance find they need only request help, and an army responds.
One other key component of the Clan Quest community is its event hosting community. Any player can host an event. The clan has a non-official group who hosts fun and innovative based upon the current interests of clan members and the most popular game content at present.

Outside of the actual game, Clan Quest provides services to its members in a multitude of venues. With an impressive, ever-active community forum (known commonly as the offsite), IRC, Skype, and even real world meetings, the community of Clan Quest's members are very active, and provide a significant amount of support and engagement to their peers.

With over 80 members who own the quest cape, and over 125 members with more than 250 quest points, the cc that the clan operates serves as a location of quest experts. Any player in Runescape is welcome to join the cc, and the service that Clan Quest provides is the reason for its success. It is currently the only clan that functions solely to assist players completing Quests.
Besides this is the community that exists in the Clan. The community is very helpful, works together, and is fairly active in the events that are occasionally hosted by QC Leadership.

Clan Websites[edit | edit source]
A privately hosted website, where all Runescape enthusiasts are welcome to convene. It is moderated by Clan Quest officers, and encourages community through a multitude of media.
The Clan Quest Noobness[edit | edit source]
To a visitor of the Clan Quets channel, some of the clan's “practices” may seem very curious. Most important amongst these is the tendency for members to call each other noobs. “Noob” while used in Clan Quest, is a term of endearment; frequently used in friendly banter and to acknowledge a player's favorite friends in the clan. If you are called a noob in Clan Quest, rest assured this is a good thing. Keep in mind, you may be a noob, but you are their noob. They take this very seriously! Also, feel free to call any of members of clan quest noobs (as long as you remain polite) and please bear in mind their intentions if you are addressed as a noob while visiting.
Included in the practice of calling people noobs, you may find that many of their members possess nicknames including Noob (or some variation) in their name. Ex: Tohtli (Nubhtli), The Rerecros (The Noobecros), Bigg Doggg (Bigg Nubbb), The Draziw (The Boon), Skills2Quest (Skills2Noob), Anamona (Anamonub), Bobacupcake (Bobanubcake). Clan Quest members are encouraged to assume a “Clan Name” which includes Noob in some context.
Jagex Recognition[edit | edit source]

Dubbed "The CLF", the Clan Leader Forums are a place were the leaders of clan quest can communicate directly with Jagex on behalf of the Clan Quest community. This two way medium of communication has granted Clan Quest a unique ability to communicate with Jagex, and convey the clan's interests and needs.
