Hello, I'm Erichermit. You may recognize me from my other guide, "Misunderstood Monsters", most known for the
section on wyverns. On that day, December 12, that Wyverns were updated to Runescape, another update was also
released! It was the Champion's Challenge.


First of all, you might be wondering, what even is the Champion's Challenge? Those of you who have 32 or higher
Quest Points, and are a member, may on rare occasions recieve the elusive champion scroll from any of the
following monsters: Imp, Goblin, Skeleton, Zombie, Hill Giant, Hobgoblin, Ghoul, Earth Warrior, Jogre,
Lesser Demon, Banshee, Mummy, and Aberrant Spectre. You then must bring this scroll to the basement of the Champion's
Guild. If you hand your scroll to the NPC walking around there who looks like a butler, he will allow you to fight a beefed up champion of the
race of the monster you killed. The monsters are usually easy, but the Lesser Demon Champion can be a bit of
trouble if you don't know how to go about killing him. All fights have certain rules you must follow when
fighting, such as "No Special Attacks", "Range Attacks Only", and so on. Do not bring yourself badly equipment
and end up dying and losing your scroll. You don't want to have to get it all over again.



So why do it all then? Well, one could also ask why even play the game? People train slayer beyond 90, and
training most other skills becomes useless past a certain level, yet people still train higher. Completion
of the Champion's Challenge is a rare feat, and it is usually estimated that more people have 99 slayer than
all 13 Champion banners.



With good reason, but for those of you who like a challenge for the sake of it, and want to be among a select
few people who have completed this challenge, are looking for a bit of combat exp, an excuse to kill monsters
you don't usually kill, and a bit of fun (debatable), then read on.



It is also worth mentioning that the Champion's Challenge is not completely finished. After beating the 13 lower
champions you battle there are some more Higher champions. Only two higher champions can be fought, the human,
and the gnome home. However, more will be added in the future, so it'd be wise to get a head start! There used to be
no way of proving that you had collected all the of the Champion Scrolls, but Jagex was kind enough to give us an imp
to carry around a banner proclaiming out degree of champion-ness!


Some people wishing to unlock all the songs should note that the song "Victory is Mine" can only be unlocked after
recieving a champion scroll.



Champion Scroll drops are incredibly rare. A certain Champion of Humans, Maxpow3r, has made an extensive and popular
RSOF thread on the matter. It can be found at quick find code 72-73-21-56997049. In it is a brief description of
rewards and methods, as well as a large amount of support for champion hunters and data approximating drop
probabilities of scrolls. If you are attemptings the challenge I recommend that you create a post logging your
drops there in order to recieve interesting support during your journey. It would also be nice to post about
it here, as I would love to hear about your experiences.



According to Maxpow3r, average drop probabilities are approximately 1/5000. This has been done with the collected
data of 110 different champion scroll drops.

I have been exceptionally lucky with my Imp, Hill Giant, Hobgoblin, and Jogre Scrolls.



I will be writing this guide as I complete the champion's challenge, and will only post guide material on
scrolls that I currently have. Once I recieve a scroll, I will shortly after write a guide on that monster here.



Before you get into this, I estimate that if you can kill an average of 200 Champion's Challenge monsters an hour,
this should take 325 hours of gameplay. You could get a 99 skill in that time. So just keep that in mind, and finish
the challenge anyway!

Niiice, you've gotten more than me. I only have Zombie, from, yes, you guessed it, Armoured Zombies, I have yet to see anyone who has completed it, I tried ages ago, but my hate of Ghouls made me quit, maybe I should have tried another monster... :lol:



Good luck with getting the other scrolls, fave fun. \<img src=/' />

Nice guide, good layout, and well-written. Just one small remark:

Imps appear to have a better drop probability than other scroll droppers, and Maxpow3r estimates an imp scroll

to be 1/3202 based on a sample size of 8 scrolls.


You don't call 8 scrolls the sample size. The sample size is 3202*8=25616 This is because killing the imp is an experiment (sample), which results in success (scroll) or failure (another drop). The same goes for your bit about the hill giants.

You are absolutely correct, Knight. That was a silly wording of me.



I prefer to describe the amount of scroll data used in scrolls earned though. What would be the best wording of this then, other than sample size?

The only one I tried was goblins, but I gave up after about 2 000 =P

Thank you very much, Rien!



I am current need of Hobgoblin pictures actually, for I have earned the scroll from Hobgoblins but neglected to take pictures. Also, I'm looking for a banner to put on the top.



Uploading Jogre section very soon.

I've actually been working towards the Hobgoblin Scroll in my spare time, so if I get it I'll be sure to post the pictures (of course, I can't guarantee that I'll receive it anytime soon). As for the banner, how does a conglomerate of the congratulation scrolls and such strike you?



Examples of possible images for use:

Again, I'm sorry for the poor quality of my pictures; many of them were taken pre-HD and without too much thought, so they can't be of much use.

But anyway, there's my idea for a banner. Good luck on your guide. :)

Actually I like those pictures, they'll make nice filler pictures for the intro and sort.



Thank you very much! I feel like the guide is so much more visually appealing now instead of being a wall of text.



What I was hoping to use as the banner someday is me standing in front of my completed wall. Unfortunately, It shall be a while before I am ready for that. The dying Lesser Demon champion looks pretty epic. I've taken the Runescape Knowledge base banner picture to use as a banner for now, next to your dying Lesser Demon. The scroll pictures seem fitting the kill-logging area, in my opinion.

Awesome. :<img src=:' />



Let me know if there are any more pictures/transparents you'd like or information I could collect. I'd love to see a working, appealing guide over all of this.

The statistical term would be with 8 successes, but that's not very clear for this guide.

You could say something like: 8 scrolls were gained in x kills, which gives a probability of one in ... kills.

Second was hobgoblin scroll when killing them for 1k limpwurt roots. 3rd Goblin scroll I got when getting kc for bandos. Only scroll I have really tried to get is ghoul one.. Have killed them well over 10000 but still no success. And of course I kill imps when one comes nearby :)

Thanks for the pictures, Cantristenon. :D



Anyway, Erichermit, I think I'll work a bit more on creating the visual appeal (if you don't mind). I believe there's some progress to be made in that area. :<img src=:' />

I'll post what I have over the weekend.

I have gotten two zombie challenge scrolls in about 300 armoured zombie kills. I suggest that if you want a zombie challenge scroll you should go to armoured zombies because they give great experience + money.

I am currently trying to obtain the Goblin challenge scroll, for I deemed that the easiest one. I want this because it is one of the two songs I have yet to unlock :)



Would you like me to make a small guide on the best way to kill these?

@Cantristenon: Congratulations on your kills! I hope you get better luck with Ghouls!



@Rien: Thank you very much =)



@Cooldude3910: Yeah, that is where Ive been doing it lately. Technically it's a slower way to get a scroll than other zombie killing methods but I enjoy it quite a bit more due to the great exp and decent cash.



@Metu: What I do when killing goblins is put on a ranger gear with knives and go in the goblin house near lumbridge. They only have 5 hp so bronze knives should kill them quickly without having to run around. Goblin kills go so fast it's insane.

I actually didn't know that armoured zombies dropped them until I got it. I didn't take a pic though. I was hunting for the goblin one but I killed 500 and I gave up. :x
