OSRS Kourend Favour Guide

What is Kourend Favour ?

Kourend favour is a system that allows players to gain reputation from the five ruling houses in Great Kourend. Each of these houses have their own favour bar which you can fill to 100%. These houses are:

  • Arceuus
  • Hosidius
  • Lovakengj
  • Piscarilius
  • Shayzien

Why Should You Get Kourend Favour ?

There are many benefits to be earned from maxing out your favour for each of the houses. It unlocks a variety of different teleport methods to Great Kourend. New spells, training methods for various skills and new mobs. (More details on rewards, further down.)

A number of quests also require some favour from the 5 houses those quests are:

  • Queen of Thieves - 20% Piscarilius Favour
  • Depths of Despair - 20% Hosidius Favour
  • Tale of Righteous - 20% Shayzien Favour
  • The Forsaken Tower - 20% Lovakengj Favour
  • The Ascent of Arceuus - 20% Arceuus Favour
  • A Kingdom Divided - 100% Favour in all 5 houses

To get a quest cape you, it is required that you have 100% favour in all of the houses.

Favour Guide

Before you begin your favour grind it is recommended to complete the quest "Client of Kourend" which rewards the player with a Kourend favour certificate. This item grants the player 20% favour in any house they want. If you don't have 30% Port Piscarilius favour, it is best to use it on it since the early Piscarilius grind is slow and expensive. Another good choice would be Lovakengj since its early grind is also really slow.

Kourend Favour Arceuus

One of the easiest houses to get 100% favour in is the house Arceuus. At 20% Arceuus favour you can complete the quest "The Ascent of Arceuus" to receive 10% favour.

0 - 100% Arceuus Library: Grab your weight reducing clothing, few stamina potions and a ring of endurance (optional) and make your way to the Arceuus Library. On the ground floor of the library, talk to either Sam, Professor Gracklebone or Villa to receive a task to fetch them some books. For this part it is HIGHLY recommended that you use the Runelite client since it will automatically detect where books are which will make your life astronomically easier. Search some bookcases that have a highlighted square in front of them until the plugin detects where each book is. Collect any book and text that you can until you find the one that the npc has asked of you. Return with the book to receive your reward and get another task, repeat this until you get 100% favour.

Collecting all the books makes it so that you can instantly deliver the request if you already have the book in your inventory.

During this grind if you come across a book named "Transportation incantations" read it to unlock "Kourend castle teleport". If you find a book named "Soul Journey" read it to start the miniquest "Bear Your Soul".

Each delivered book will also reward you with a xp tome that can give you magic or runecrafting experience depending on your choice.
