Varrock Achievement Diary
If you have read about Achievement Diaries (which is recommended before you attempt one), you should know the basic ideas about what you need to do. They were introduced so Higher Level players would be able to do a task with a challenge. If this is the first Achievement Diary you are thinking of doing, you should consider trying the Lumbridge/Draynor Achievement Diary first as it is alot easier than any of the others, including this, and will help you to get a feel for how the diaries work. This Diary is based around Varrock, the difficulty ranges from easy to hard.
 How To Start
There are no requirements to Start the Achievement Diary, but there are many needed to complete them, see Requirements for the full details. To start the task, you must speak to either: Reldo, in the Varrock Castle's library; Rat Burgiss, south of varrock, on the road to Lumbridge; or Vannaka, in Edgeville dungeon, near to the entrance to the wilderness.
To get to Varrock the easiest way is using teleport to varrock, requiring 25 Magic 3 air runes, 1 fire and law rune. Or you can use a teleport to varrock teleport tablet. Another way is to use an Amulet Of Glory to teleport you to Edgeville, and go through the shortcut to the Grand Exchange.
The requirements of the Diary differ greatly. However you may find that you can do some Hard tasks yet are incapable of doing some of the Easy tasks! Many require skills, some require quests and most require items.
|Task Difficulty||Skills Required
||Skill Levels Required||Quests Required||Item Requirement|
||Coins (at least 6,150)|
|A Soul's Bane
