This guide is a part of our OSRS Optimal Quest Guide.

Misthalin Mystery story & info

Misthalin Mystery is the 130th quest and was the second quest that was made for OSRS specifically. The quest was originally meant to be a Halloween event, but eventually became a permanent quest after passing a poll from the community!

This murder mystery quest is based on the Scream movie series and the house in which it takes place looks a suspicious amount like the Draynor Manor.

Misthalin Mystery is a F2P quest and this guide is 100% F2P and ironman friendly.
