The Champion's Challenge minigame is found in the basement of the Champions' Guild. While fighting the creatures of RuneScape, a player may be challenged to a duel by the champion of that race. These duels take place with certain rules, from limiting the player's armour to disallowing some items. Challenges are offered by means of a champion's scroll, an extremely rare drop (1/5,000 chance) from certain monsters. In addition, a player must have 32 quest points to receive a champion's scroll.
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." This message is not filtered by the game tab and will always be displayed.
You cannot teleport out of the Champions' Guild basement, this includes Magic tablets. Attempting to do so will prompt Larxus to inform you "There's a ladder for a reason". If you need to escape the fight at any time simply exit through the portcullis. Crossing through the portcullis does not end the fight or reset the Champion's HP. The fight ends once you climb the ladder behind it. You don't lose the Champion's scroll if you escape the fight, it only disappears once you slay the Champion. It is possible to drop the Champion's scroll before defeating the Champion and picking it up once you have won the fight to keep it.
There are ten champions that may challenge you, 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 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. Defeating him will earn you 492 Slayer and HP experience, as well as his seat at the arena.
