Having spent his whole life fishing, Jones the fisherman has decided to retire in style. He believes that there’s a fortune to be had by hunting the dreaded Thalassus: a sea monster that’s rumoured to be thousands of years old and as big as a village. That’s what the stories say anyway, as no survivors have returned to tell tales of it, but you can be sure of one thing: you want to be far, far away from it when it surfaces.

If Jones is to stand a chance of landing this deadly beast, he needs your help. A rower, harpoon and map are needed before you can head out to hunt (those who suffer from sea-sickness, beware). Then there’s the small problem of finding the beast; while Thalassus is big, the oceans are bigger, and hunting it is like finding a giant, hungry needle in a humungous haystack.


You might come across treasure in the shipwrecks out to sea, and there’s a healthy haul of XP to salvage from this master quest. That’s not all, as additional hunting opportunities are on offer to eager sailors.

At the end of the day, a hunter or their quarry will be on the menu. So, who will be the Deadliest Catch: Jones or the Thalassus?

Mod Tim
RuneScape Content Developer
Summary:

Where to start Deadliest Catch:

Talk to Jones next to the Fishing Guild bank. He’s the one with the large fishing rod.

Requirements to start Deadliest Catch:

70 Fishing
70 Thieving
67 Hunter
Tower of Life
Druidic Ritual
In other news...

As those who voted in the ‘What’s My Name?’ Guaranteed Content Poll will have already noted, the winning sea monster name of ‘Thalassus’ has made it in game and the creature is munching on players as we speak! Thank you to all of those who voted and got the name into RuneScape.

We are ending support for older versions of Java (versions older than Sun Java 1.6.0_10) in a couple of weeks time. So that we do not catch players unaware, we have created a warning screen for those players who will be affected, which will pop up when you initially load the RuneScape applet, offering links to help you upgrade. With newer versions of Java, we are able to use more advanced features that should give you a better experience. For example, we are able to set the applet to use slightly more memory, so that the game runs more quickly. If we make sure that everyone is using a newer version, we can work to make the game better for everyone without the need to support less advanced Java versions.

Can't believe this isn't up yet. So who's done it? Any good?

Terrible quest, lasts about ten minutes.
Content after is repetetive and irritating, and lasts maybe 20 mins futher.

Thoroughly disappointed, quest has no storyline, no plot, no relevance to anything, and no real requirements should have been brought in, should have been located outside fishing quest.

It's an intermediate at best.

I was kind of looking forward to the quest because I like fishing but it requires another quest to do before I can do it so I guess I'll be putting that on hold.

Easiest "Master" quest ever.

The rewards were pretty bad, and catching the Thallasus 10 more times was an annoying waste of an hour.

Was anything hard with it though? I mean, Nomad was a joke and a sore dissapointment for a Grandmaster quest because it was that short and uneventful, but the hard part in it is basically the part where you have to kill Nomad, so I see why it can be considered Grandmaster because it will be seen as "hard" for at least 99% of the players, and Master quests tend to be either longer (like how When Guthix Sleeps became a Grandmaster quest) or a bit hard (like Nomad is an example for), but what's the hard part about this one? Getting the requirements...? :D

Getting the requirements...? :D

Since I already had the requirements (all skills over 70 except dungeoneering, with quite a few in the mid-80s), the only hard part was reining in my annoyance & boredom with tracking over water, & having to restart from the beginning if I searched more than a couple of incorrect bits of wreckage.  IOW, keeping my patience with a really annoying and illogical activity long enough to finish the quest.
  In fact, even though I really need Hunter XP, I got fed up with the repeat hunts after the first one... I will go back and do the rest for the XP, but it's a slog that's not even remotely fun.

There were some cool &/or funny bits to the quest - I especially liked the cutscene with Linza - but overall I have to say it was pretty lame for a "Master" quest.... I'd rate it "Intermediate".
   The lamest bit is the searching the wrecks for "treasure"... really low-level stuff for the most part, other than a few blood runes, and even those were in such low quantity I didn't think them worth taking. The "treasure" I ended up getting was 3 green dragonhides, which for someone with 79 Crafting is pretty much a joke.

Oh that's... disappointing. :(
At least the name of the fish is pretty nice, 'Thalassus' sounds like a Greek name of a mythical Aegean sea monster. :D

Or "thalassa", i.e. "sea" in Greek. ;P

Hence, 'thalassus' is a Latin declination of a Greek word

Not particularly, but then as a female who's played sports (e.g. seen lots and lots of other women's bodies in dressing rooms) & grew up with three sisters in a family without much of a nudity taboo, I really don't notice such things. :(
