Might as well as Hero's quest there as well. But they give you a forum to look for players, I've never personally had trouble finding someone.
If you want to make it easy on yourself, get into the black arm gang. Most people get in the pheonix gang, since they can without any help, so people are always looking for Black Arm gang members.

Why not just make it so you can join both gangs at the same time? :mellow:

I agree, quests like this needs to go die. Sure there's RSOF, but face it, this is Runescape. Not a lot of players can be trusted.

I personally got lucky with both shield of arrav and heroes' quest, but maybe others aren't.

Shield of Arrav and Heroes quest were both easy for me. My brother played at the time I did them, so we just helped each other out. :thumbsup:

It's only two really easy quests, nothing major for the whole of the game. but it's not actually that hard to find other people- i think heroes can be done with someone who has already done it.


heros you can

Shield of arrav im fairly sure you can

I hope there will be more quests like it, but dungeoneering-style. Multiplayer Temple of Light puzzles will require very decent cooperation.

unless they've changed it in the past year, you can't help someone if you've already done the quest.

I did the quest alone back when it was still possible (you could just buy the certificate from a general store or another player and give it to the king without even starting the quest) :D

But yeah, I agree that it's really annoying. <_<

:shame: Gods no.

I talk my husband into making a new account for SoA. Heroes is not bad getting a partner from the RSOF; Black Arm is/was in high demand.

Why do people pick Phoenix gang over Black Arm gang? Are either of these really any different?

Anyways, like I said, Jagex needs to make this quest doable single player, with the ability to join BOTH gangs at once. I'm sorry, but Runescape players fails at co-op and I want to do those quests ALONE.

It's easier to be in the Phoenix Gang as a low combat level. Black Arm takes effort to get either the combat skills to kill the weapon master or 33 magic for tele grab. (I miss being able to buy the Phoenix crossbows.)

I've helped 5 or 6 friends when they did Heroes' across the past few years, so I can confirm that you can redo the gang member portion of the quest. Too bad it doesn't work that way for Shield of Arrav as well.

I remember doing Shield of Arrav single-handedly. I saw some phoenix crossbows in the general store. I remembered it was for entry to the Black Arm gang and bought all of them (Black Arm gang was the first gang I talked to). Then I was stuck for a few months doing my own things when I saw a reward certificate on the floor.
So I was in pretty high demand when I did Heroes'.

i HATE that quest.

i have done legends quest, got a whip etc but i still have not really finished that quest (lulwut).
i still cant get the whole shield, and yet i saved the day with it in defender of varrac. odd...

the idea is nice, its allright useing forms to find people, but its just painfull for anyone that the quest is aimed at (low/mis level f2p) :wall:

Phoenix is the first option, simple as that.

On both my pures, i did the quest in a matter of minutes when some random walked up to me in varrock and asked "have you done shield of arrav".

Unless you NEED the quest as a requirement, just wait, sooner or later someone will want to do the quest.
O.O
