The Emissaries

The Emissaries have appeared on Gielinor trying to convince you to join their cause with their words. Speaking to each emissary will allow you to ask who each god is, why you should follow them and what they want.

You can change which faction you support at anytime. Changing your faction will keep your progress in any jobs you have completed for the emissary, but will replace your banner and Relic helm (if you have it) with the versions from your new faction. You will also have your title replaced with the new faction title.

Jobs (Members only)

To receive jobs from emissaries you must be a RuneScape Member. All jobs you receive will be identical no matter which allegiance you pick. If you change your allegiance without completing all jobs then your progress will not be reset, and you can only complete each job once. The jobs are split up into three categories; combat, skill, and exploration. All jobs can be completed without returning to your emissary by simply using the Check Progress option on your banner.

Completing each job will award you some experience in the skill associated with that job. Completing a full set of jobs will improve your banner, giving it a special daily ability to improve your skills for 30 minutes.

As you complete jobs you will also unlock new pages in your Book of the Gods. When you complete you 3rd, 6th and 9th job you will get new pages for your chosen faction. After completing all jobs you will unlock all stories for all factions.
