RuneScape, nowadays also known as RS3, is a widely popular fantasy MMORPG. It was launched in 2001 and is now one of the world’s longest-running online games. 

There is a long list of quests for a game such as RS3 (no surprise there!): each belonging to different series in the game, and each having different levels of difficulty, story length, and membership requirement. 

In this article, we are going to give you a guide on the Fate of the Gods quest, one of the Grandmaster quests. These quests are considerably high in difficulty, and they could take a long time to complete. But worry not, we’re here to help you out! 


Fate of the Gods is the conclusion to the Return of Zaros subseries in the God quest series of RS3. The quest’s main goal is to help Azzanadra to bring his god, Zaros, back to Gielinor

Without further spoiling anything more, let’s get on to the quest’s overview and requirements. 


  • Difficulty: Grandmaster
  • Length: Long to Very Long
  • Member requirement: Members Only

Getting Started

Fate of the Gods' Quest Guide

Go to the Eagles’ Peak – the easiest way to get there would be to use a lodestone. Once there, head directly south until you meet Azzanadra who will tell you about the quest. Accept the quest by picking the option [I’ll help if I can.] from the dialogue menu. 

Azzanadra will further explain about the World Gate, a portal that can reach every plane in existence, and that he enlisted the help of Sliske to pull the portal out of the Shadow Realm. You need to solve a combination lock to activate the portal. 

Sliskle will appear and pull you into the Shadow Realm, offering you a proposal before telling you the combination lock. Afterward, Sliske will place the answer on a pillar near the gate. This gives you the combination M-A-H in the runic alphabet. 

Head towards the World Gate, then click on the console in front of it—use it to plug in the combination lock to power the portal. Follow these steps: 

1Rotate right to M
2Rotate left to A
3Rotate right to H

Once the World Gate is activated, make the necessary preparations and then enter the gate once ready. 

Entering Zaro’s Sanctum

Fate of the Gods' Quest Guide

You arrive at The Approach after entering the World Gate. This is the most dangerous and largest area of Freneskae. Unless you’re wearing a face mask, you need to move quickly as the air is filled with deadly smoke, causing you to lose 50 life points every 15 seconds. 

You will find Zaro’s Sanctum at the end of The Approach. At the other end of the room, you will find a door with symbols on it. You need to solve a relatively simple puzzle with three stages to open it—just rotate the panels on the door to match the symbols to light up the lines which are in-between the dials.

Fight with Nihils in the Pit

You must defeat four nihil creatures as you enter the room, each based on Ancient Magicks elements. Each nihil has a different combat style and special attacks and has no weakness. 

Dying or escaping from the pit will only restore all nihils to full health. 

  • Ice nihil – always runs south and uses ranged attacks. Its special attack will deal 6 seconds stun and drain player’s Prayer points by 50% of the maximum. 
  • Smoke nihil – always runs west and uses magic attacks. Its special attack decreases Attack, Strength, Magic, Ranged, and Defense by 5 up to 3 times (total of 15). 
  • Shadow nihil – always runs north and uses ranged attacks. Its special attack creates a shadow bomb at the player’s current position that deals rapid damage. 
  • Blood nihil – always runs east and uses melee attacks. Its special attack negates all incoming damage and will heal it instead. It also passively heals other nihils, so it’s a good strategy to first finish this nihil. 

Once the combat-heavy fight is finished, head north and open the unlocked door to emerge atop the volcano. 

The Cradle of Mah

Approach the large sleeping figure, and climb down the cliff next to its left hand. A mysterious entity will appear telling you to stop—it’s none other than Zaros himself. 

Zaros explains that the sleeping figure is Mah, an elder god. You will then enter the mind threshold where you can ask Zaros questions. Once you are done, speak to Zaros again and he will tell you that you have to defend against Mah’s nightmare after leaving the mind threshold. 

Approach Mah to start the nightmare – it lasts a couple of minutes, in which you need to fight off Muspahs. Prayer and food are extremely useful in this part, and a beast of burden familiar is highly recommended.

Halls of the Elders

Once the nightmare is over, climb down the cradle opposite of where you entered. You will find several Mah wisps, which you will need to give Zaros a simulacrum which he will use to form his new body. If you wish to aid Zaros, give him a dark simulacrum. Otherwise, give him a light one. 

Zaros will teleport you and himself away from Mah before he awakens and back to the entrance of World Gate. Head back to it after talking to Zaros. 

Finally, the return of Zaros 

Once you step through the World Gate, you will witness the return of Zaros from the Shadow Realm. Zaros then meets with his followers and gives them various assignments. 

Regardless of your decision on the simulacrum, Zaros will reward you with a variety of things. After the quest, you are now also affiliated with Zaros, allowing you to communicate with him via a device in the Sanctum.  


This quest centers around Death who has gone missing, and Icthlarin, the Menaphite god of the dead, who is attempting to take over Death’s role until he is found. 

  • Optional: The quests listed below are optional, but highly recommended to complete these to appreciate the full storyline and grab the additional rewards from these quests! 
    • The World Wakes
    • The Firemaker’s Curse
    • Ritual of the Mahjarrat
