In this OSRS Temple of the Eye Quest Guide, we’ll go through all the steps to complete the quest.

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

Temple of the Eye Quest story & info

The Temple of the Eye Quest Guide is a requirement to start playing the Guardians of the Rift minigame.

Furthermore, Temple of the Eye is recommended in our 1-99 Runecrafting Guide as it will instantly bump you from level 10 Runecrafting to level 27 Runecrafting.

  • Teleports to varrock

OSRSGuide Recommendation:

Use the Quest Helper Plugin for Runelite.

The Quest Helper Plugin makes Questing TONS easier.

  • Helps keep track of the item requirements and whether you have them on you or not
  • Displays a quest guide in the sidebar
  • Highlights NPCs you need to talk to
  • Knows which dialogue you need to use during the quest
  • Shows the next location in the quest on your map

If you want to install it, you can install the Quest Helper directly from your Plugin Hub on Runelite.

Quest Start

Speak with Wizard Persten, in-between the PVP Arena and Al Kharid gate to start the Temple of the Eye quest.

Dialogue: 2-1

(I used teleport to PVP Arena via Dueling Ring)

P.S. This Quest Guide was completed on our GIM account with the 117HD Graphics enabled.

Also, it’s fun little jokes like these that stop me from skipping dialogues in osrs. 🙂

After a long dialogue, Persten will give you the Eye Amulet.

Helping out Herbert, the Mage of Zamorak

Next, teleport to Varrock and make your way to the Chaos Temple in southeast Varrock.

Dialogue: 3-1

Okay, the next part you aren’t going to enjoy very much but I promise it’s not difficult.

A bunch of Runic Energies will pop up and you have to interact with each of them until one turns white.

Then, you have to find the next one that turns white. (remember which one was first!)

There is one correct order for each player (random!) and you have to find yours.

It’s basically trial and error until you made all of them white.

Here’s what my order looked like: (again, different for everyone)!

Once all of them are white, speak with the Dark Mage again.

He will hand you an Abyssal Incantation.
