Dangerous Area
This is a 'Dangerous' area of RuneScape. If you die in this location, you will lose your items

The Champions' Challenge Arena

Various races around RuneScape have chosen their bravest and strongest champions to fight for them in an arena beneath the Champions' Guild.

Around the edges of the arena are sat mystery figures, the 'Champions of Champions'. One of them may decide to challenge you after you have bested a number of the lower champions.

The lower champions aren't worthy enough to have a seat in the arena, but will challenge you when you have made yourself known as an enemy of their race. While fighting your way through the different monsters of RuneScape, you may find that one drops a message from a champion, challenging you to a duel.

These drops are very rare (about 1 in 5000), so finding a champion's scroll after a battle will be rare. This makes it very difficult to defeat all of the lower champions.

Once you have been challenged, take your scroll to the arena to await your duel. When you have fought and defeated one of the lower champions, you will not be able to receive another scroll from the same race.

Defeating all 15 champions is a requirement to trim the completionist cape.

Location

Location of the Champions' Guild

The Champions' Guild is located south-east of Varrock, with the Champions' Challenge arena located underneath it. To access the arena you have to go down through the trapdoor under the stairs once inside the guild.

A combat bracelet will teleport you directly to the guild. Alternatively, you can use the Home Teleport to travel to the Varrock Lodestone, then walk south-west to reach the guild.

Requirements

  • You must have 33 Quest Points in order to enter the Champions' Guild.
  • Level-60 Slayer is required to obtain all of the champion's scrolls.
  • A high combat level would be an advantage.
  • A dwarf multicannon with plenty of cannonballs would be an advantage to obtain the scrolls.

Recommended items

Because you will probably have to kill a large number of monsters to acquire the scrolls, powerful combat equipment will help you to kill monsters faster and improve your chances of finding a scroll.

If you manage to acquire a champion scroll enhancer from the Motherlode Maw, keeping it in your inventory will increase your chances of receiving a champion's scroll by 20%. Each enhancer has a limited number of charges, and a charge is used up each time you kill a monster that can drop a scroll.

Every champion you face will have different restrictions for their battle and may require additional items, specifically for the Slayer monsters. For example, when fighting the Lesser Demon Champion, you cannot bring weapons or armour to aid you in the battle.

Note: If you die in the Champions' Challenge arena, you will die as normal, losing your items and returning to the last respawn point you passed through. Your gravestone will appear in the main Champions' Guild area, and your champion's scroll will be in your grave.

Obtaining a scroll

Main article: Champion's scroll

A champion's scroll

Obtaining a champion's scroll can be a very tedious task, as the scrolls normally have a drop rate of 1 in 5000 regardless of the monster you choose to fight. Wearing a ring of wealth does not increase the chances of finding a scroll - only a champion scroll enhancer can do that.

A drop rate of 1 in 5000 does not mean that you will have to kill 5000 monsters to find a scroll - it may take far more or less kills than this. Patience and luck will get you the reward you seek.

When a scroll is dropped, a message will be displayed in the chat box, and a jingle will sound to alert players of the drop.

The challenges

Once you enter the arena, you'll meet the doorman Larxus, your point of contact for all champion fights. He has an informal challenge from the Leprechaun Champion if you want to get a taste of what fighting a champion is like - no scroll required! Incidentally, no items will be allowed either.

Larxus will also happily accept your champions' challenges, so use your champion scroll on him if you wish to fight. He will inform you that the champion of that race has challenged you, and is ready for the duel. He will then tell you the conditions for this battle, giving you one last chance to back out. If you accept, you have to go through a trapdoor behind the champion statue to enter the arena. Now go through the door and begin your fight!

As you defeat more and more champions' scrolls, you may get challenged by one of the elusive Champion of Champions.

Rewards

When you defeat a champion, you will receive experience in both the Slayer and Constitution skills. The amount of experience you receive will depend on the Constitution level of that champion.

You will also be pointed in the direction of Larxus, who has "calling beads" for anyone who defeats a champion. When used, these beads will summon a banner carrier imp, a loyal follower who displays your Champions' Challenge accomplishments. There are banners for every champion or Champion of Champions, so you can boast about any that you have defeated, or you can simply show off the number of champions you have felled. To change your banner, talk to the imp or right-click and select 'Change-banner'.

Calling beads inventory icon

Note: Defeating the Leprechaun Champion will not earn you the calling beads, you must find a champion's scroll and defeat the champion.

For each champion you defeat, a wall banner will appear on the outer wall of the arena. As you defeat more champions, more banners will appear.

Upon defeating all 15 champions, Larxus will reward you with four scrolls of knowledge, each giving 10,000 experience in any combat skill, and 50,000 coins.

Community

A number of players have shown interest in hunting for the Champions' Challenge scrolls and have come together to form a strong community that offers advice and support for each other. The community was founded in 2005 by Xuradel, who ran the forum topic until version 3 maxed out in October 2011, with version 4 being created by Sen. The Champions' Challenge forum topic is a valuable resource of information, and also where players can post their own profile with information regarding the scrolls they have obtained, the number of monsters killed to obtain them, dates they were challenged, and anything else the players choose to include.

The Champions' Challenge community also come together in-game to chat with each other in the friends chat "championchat", where they are able to keep each other company while hunting for scrolls, and also offer advice to those still seeking certain scrolls.

Volume 4 of the Champions' Challenge on the forums can be found by clicking here.
