The Questing Clan of RuneScape is the largest Guild in Clan Quest, and is the Guild in which "Clan Quest" was founded. All of the Clan's founders and current Clan Councilors came out of the Questing Clan of RuneScape, which has had a long history spanning from November 9th, 2009, when it was founded by Draziw, Sethron 666, and Kappathegray, to now. The Clan was founded to bring together likeminded individuals who prided themselves on their completion of RuneScape's various quests, and their ultimate goal was to obtain the coveted "Quest Cape". Not only that, the Guild was founded to help other people, not just members, complete these quests, making it one of the only "Quest Help Clans" in the game, and by far the most prominent.

The Questing Clan of RuneScape's Guild Council, formerly known as the "Low Council", has long been the Guild's day to day governing body and has had a history almost as long as the Guild's itself. In order to join the Questing Clan of RuneScape's Guild Council you must possess a Quest Cape and have been a member of the Guild for at least ninety days. The current head of the Guild Council is Tyco elf, who was elected on May 9th, 2017 after running unopposed.
Main Article: Questing Clan of RuneScape Honor Council
The Questing Clan of RuneScape's Honor Council was the first Honor Council ever established, and was done so in response to a major fight between the 2010 equivalents of a Clan Councilor and a Guild Councilor. There are only ever three members in the Questing Clan of RuneScape's Honor Council at any given time, and the current membership consists of Derparnieux as the leader, and Wolffi and Choto 3000 as his assistants.
Main Article: Questing Clan of RuneScape Marshals
The Combat Marshals are a subgroup that were formed by Karen Angel on May 21st, 2014 in order to bring together the Guild's members who were more interested in cooperative combat content. As time went on they became the unofficial "Clan Army", even receiving their own subforum that designated them a seperate entity from the Event Thugs. They have since become an official subgroup of Clan Quest, alongside the Razzers and Event Thugs, and continue to be led by Karen Angel to this day.
Main Article: Content Editors
While not an official branch of the Questing Clan of RuneScape, the Content Editors did get their start there with the RuneScape themed "Questaholic" Magazine. Officially, the Content Editors are a subgroup of Clan Quest, overseen by the Clan Council, but their core membership has been pulled from the Questing Clan of RuneScape, and because of that the group is closely tied to that Guild.
Main Article: Questing Clan of RuneScape Razzers
The Recruitment Razzers were formed and ran by MsKonnan10 and Lizbeth on September 2, 2011 to organize the Guild's recruitment efforts on a more controlled scale. Any member of the clan could volunteer to work with the Razzers, and on October 15th of that year the group was formally recognized as a subgroup of the Questing Clan of RuneScape. The official group was disbanded on March 21, 2018.
Event Thugs United
Main Article: Questing Clan of RuneScape Event Thugs
The Event Thugs United, usually just called the "ETU", started out as a group of clanmembers, mainly Hemsky, Rerecros, Sinistral, and Bobacupcake, hosting events under the guise of a single group. The group got its "thugs" name because they were often on the more aggressive side in getting members to participate in their events, but ultimately they were so successful that the Event Thugs became the Guild's official event hosts. The official group was disbanded on March 21, 2018.
Main Article: Questing Clan of RuneScape Guardians
The Guardians are a secretive organization who's identities are only known to a select few that are responsible for determining whether or not new recruits are a good fit for their Guild, and whether or not they are allowed to remain. Once the Guardians have given a new member a vote of confidence they are then taken off of probation and made full members of the Questing Clan of RuneScape. The Guardians secrecy is an extremely important part of their effectiveness, and even asking about their identities could be grounds for removal from the Guild. The Guardians were disbanded when the Guild Council was formed along with the new Constitution.
Main Article: Questing Clan of RuneScape/History
The Questing Clan of RuneScape was founded on November 9th, 2009 by Draziw, Sethron 666, and Kappathegray. While the Guild was initially hosted in Draziw's personal Clan chat, it quickly became apparent that the limited moderation abilities this provided his cofounders made things far too difficult, so it was relocated to the "Clan Quest" accounts Clan chat. As a Guild that was, at least partially, created by members of another, failed, Guild, it found that it had a quickly growing roster, and by the end of December it had over forty members. The Guild was also recognized as an official Clan by RuneScape's developers, Jagex, earlier that month.
The Questing Clan of RuneScape only continued to grow rapidly from there, experiencing almost consistent growth until the April 2011 Clan Camp update that caused it to suffer a mild setback, but since then the Guild has experienced nothing but active growth. On January 15th, 2010 the very first Clan Constitution was ratified, and with it the first form of Clan Government was born. Only July 14th, 2010 a fight between two of the Guilds ranking officers occurred, and in response to this the Guild created the Honor Council, which held the power to render judgements and deal with these conflicts in a more effective, unbiased fashion. The Honor Council was ammended into the Constitution on Octber 1st, 2010, but July, 2011 that document had been retired and replaced by the Clan Quest Charter.
On September 2nd, 2011 the Recruitment Razzers group was formed, and then officialized on October 15th of that same year. At the same time, and in the months before, several other members of the Guild were hard at work hosting events for the community under the communal label "Event Thugs United". Shortly after, on January 1st, 2012, the Questing Clan of RuneScape began publication of the "Questaholic" Magazine. As these groups formed, the "High Council" and "Low Council" began to take on more defined roles, with the former working behind the scenes and the latter running day to day Guild operations.
The Guild continued to grow through the years, both in membership and in numbers of Councilors or other volunteers. The Government itself stayed relatively the same in structure for years, based on the 2011 Charter. In 2017, though, the High Council began working on a new, updated version of the Charter, which had been once again renamed to the "Constitution", and this version of the document aimed to make "The Questing Clan of RuneScape" branch of the much larger "Clan Quest", whereas before these two names had been one in the same. The new Constitution aimed to allow "Clan Quest" to spread to more games, and to better define the roles of the Clan Government after having been out of date for multiple years.
Main Article: Questing Clan of RuneScape/Events
There has been a long history of unique events held by the Questing Clan of RuneScape, most of which have been conceived or hosted by the Event Thugs, but some have just been spontaneous bursts of fun, or hosted by those not affiliated with the group. Click the link above for a more complete list of unique events, but some highlights have been the ongoing "Spot the Noob" game, Clan Auctions, The Quest Cup, the Tears of Guthix Event, and the Questing Clan of Runescape's favorite activity, the Cabbage Bombing.
The Questing Clan of RuneScape's ingame ranks are largely based on the Clan's two major bodies: The "Government" and the "Membership-at-Large". They are also bound by RuneScape's relatively limited ranking system, which provides thirteen unique ranks that a member can hold, with the top rank being the "Owner" of the Guild. The lowest of these ranks is reserved for new recruits who are in a probationary period, while the following five are used to represent a members level of Quest completion. These ranks have no actual meaning other than as a "progress bar", no one with a higher rank in this category has more power or influence than anyone else. The next highest rank is reserved for volunteers wishing to utilize the Clan's Citadel Avatar, which gives an ingame experience boost, and every rank above that are reserved for members of the Clan Government and its subgroups, such as the Razzers and ETU.
Every clan within RuneScape is given the ability to create their very own "Vexillum", which is a flag that can be planted almost anywhere in the game that proudly displays your clan colors, symbol, and can be read for additional information. Of course, the symbol and color are all based on a large list of presets that can be customized to the Clan leaders desire, but in the end it is still limited. The Questing Clan of RuneScape's Vexillum is primarily white themed with a light blue trim, emulating the games Quest Cape design, and a combination of the Quest and Achievement symbols are used, creating the look that has defined the Questing Clan of RuneScape since Vexillum's were added.
Main Article: Questing Clan of RuneScape/Citadel
The Questing Clan of RuneScape went hard to work when Clan Citadels were released on July 26th, 2011, and by April of the next year they had reached the Tier 7 rank, the highest obtainable by a RuneScape Clan.
