Meeting the rebelsEdit

Mourners in the mountainsEdit

Items required for this section: Some combat gear, two pieces of silk, some bear fur, a bucket of water.

  • Make your way to Arandar, either by heading to the entrance on the Kandarian side, or exiting Lletya and heading north to the Tirannwn side
  • Navigate through Arandar, find a mourner and kill him, and pick up the set of mourner gear, along with the letter of recommendation.
  • Go to Taverley and talk to Tegid who can be found washing clothes next to the lake surrounding Taverley Dungeon.
  • Steal the soap from the laundry basket near him.
  • Use it on the bloody mourner top.
  • Go back to Lletya by using your Crystal teleport seed and talk to Oronwen who is in the Clothes Shop. (This might be a good time to buy your dye; it is highly recommend to buy multiple of each).
  • Talk to Oronwen and then talk to him again after one minute has elapsed.

Amongst the Death GuardEdit

Items required for this section: Your mourner gear, the mourner's letter, a feather, some toad crunchies, leather and a magic log.

  • Wearing only the mourner suit, go to the Mourners' headquarters in the north-eastern building of West Ardougne.
  • Enter the building and descend to the basement through the trapdoor.
  • Talk to the Head mourner in the south-east room.
  • Talk to the Gnome on a rack in the south-west room.
  • Use a feather on him twice with the toad crunchies in your inventory.
  • Right click and 'Release' him.
  • After a few minutes, talk to the Gnome again for a Fixed device. (If he disappeared, log out then log back in to fix the problem).

Dying the non-dyingEdit

Items required for this section: Your ogre bellows, Fixed device, at least one bottle of dye of each colour: red, green, blue and yellow.

  • Travel to the Feldip Hills.
  • Load your ogre bellows with a bottle of dye.
  • Use your ogre bellows on a swamp toad. (Can be found just south of Castle Wars)
  • Repeat the process for each bottle of dye. (It is highly recommended that you make multiple of each toad)
  • Make your way to the fields north of East Ardougne, where Brumty's sheep roam.
  • Use a toad on the launcher, equip it.
  • Open the equipment tab. Right click and use the "Fire" option when you're near a sick-looking sheep.
  • Use the arrows to aim at a sheep and then press the middle "FIRE!" button once it is in the middle of the screen.
  • Do that for the three other sets of sheep.
  • Return to the head mourner, talk to him.
  • If you do not have one, pick up a rotten apple from west of the mourner's headquarters.

Elena's adviceEdit

Items required for this section: A rotten apple, loads (20 approx.) of coal and the big book of bangs.

  • Talk to Elena, who lives slightly north east of Ardougne Castle.
  • With a rotten apple in your inventory, talk to her again.
  • A few minutes later, talk to her again.

Apples in a barrelEdit

  • Go to the fenced-in apple orchard just south of the Tree Gnome Stronghold.
  • Pick up an empty barrel there.
  • Use it on the pile of rotten apples, then use the rotten apples on the apple barrel machine.
  • Pick up at least one more empty barrel.

After the naphthaEdit

  • Return to Isafdar, head to the Poison Waste a few steps south of the lodestone.
  • Fill your barrel with coal-tar.
  • Go to the fractionation still in Rimmington outside of the chemists house.
  • Use the barrel of coal-tar on the still.
  • Rotate the tar regulator clockwise twice, to make the tar flow at maximum. The 'pressure' indicator on the left should go up.
  • When the pressure enters the green region, rotate the pressure valve clockwise once to let out some pressure. This should stall the pressure indicator.
  • Start adding coal. This raises the 'heat' indicator on the right. If it's below the green region, add more coal. If it's above, don't add coal until it gets lower.
  • If the heat reading reaches the dark orange portion, you've spoilt your compound and must start again.
  • If you run out of coal, your progress will be saved, but you will have to re-set the pressure to add more coal to it.
  • Exit the interface once the green bar is full.

Preparing the poisonEdit

  • Use the naphtha on the mashed apples.
  • Use the mix on your sieve.
  • Use the naphtha on a cooking range (And not on an open fire, as the naphtha will explode!).

West Ardougne's woeEdit
