The Champions' Challenge is a Distraction and Diversion found in the basement of the Champions' Guild. While fighting various creatures of Gielinor, a player may be challenged to a duel by the champion of certain races, which are offered by means of a champion's scroll, which is received as an extremely rare drop (1/5,000 chance). These duels take place with certain rules, from limiting the player's armour to disallowing some items. In order to be eligible to receive a champion's scroll, a player must be on a members server and have 32 quest points.

When a player slays a monster and receives a champion's scroll drop, a unique message will appear in the chatbox stating "A Champion's scroll falls to the ground as you slay your opponent." In the situation that you have a Champion's scroll in possession or completed, a message "You have a funny feeling that you would have received a Champion's scroll..." will appear. These messages are not filtered by the game tab and will always be displayed.

Players cannot teleport out of the Champions' Guild basement. Attempting to do so will prompt Larxus to say "There's a ladder for a reason". If players need to escape the fight at any time, they must exit through the portcullis. Crossing through the portcullis does not end the fight or reset the Champion's hitpoints; rather, it ends once the ladder behind it is climbed up. This will not cause the Champion's scroll to be lost, it only disappears once players defeat the Champion.

It is possible to drop the Champion's scroll before defeating the Champion, and picking it up after the fight to keep it. However, if players attempt to use the scroll on Larxus after defeating the Champion, he will take your scroll away and tell you "You've already defeated this Champion. The challenge is void."

Defeating the champion will grant the player with equal amounts of Hitpoints and Slayer experience, as well as the possibility of bigger fights in the future.

There are eleven champions that may challenge the player, and each one lays down certain rules for the fight. It is possible to use a Dwarf multicannon in the arena, it will even deal damage to Champions who are immune to range attacks from the player. The cannon is not usable in any fight where range is restricted in the fight. Thralls cannot be summoned.

The Champions of Champions are those who are seated in the arena. There is a Champion for each of the races of Humans, Dwarves, TzHaar, Werewolves, Elves, and Gnomes, but only the Human champion, Leon D'Cour, may be challenged at the time.

Beating a champion

In addition to the Hitpoints and Slayer experience gained when defeating a champion, defeating them grants a banner hung on the northern wall of the basement. Players can also claim a Champion's lamp after defeating a champion, which awards ten times the experience that is given immediately after a champion's defeat.

Once players defeat all 11 champions, they can speak to Larxus to receive Leon d'Cour's champion's cape. The cape is purely cosmetic, and has no stats.
