Monk (2021 Halloween event) chathead.png

Speak to the protesting monks in Varrock Square. They will ask you to go to the Edgeville Monastery and talk to Brother Jered as Oziach is trying to buy the whole monastery from them. After talking to Brother Jered on the ground floor[UK]1st floor[US] a cutscene will ensue with the player attempting to spook Oziach by making a scary noise with Jered's empty wine bottle, while hiding inside a tree. Finish the dialogue and quickly climb into the tree. Return to Brother Jered and speak to him once more. He gives you an ad coupon to put an ad in the Varrock Herald to find a ghost accomplice.

One ghost was not enough!

Talk to Benny in Varrock Square about the Halloween event and offer any of the three options.

Death appears in the Blue Moon Inn, interested in the advertised job.

Go to the Blue Moon Inn to see if anyone responded to your advert. Talk to Iffie. A cutscene will follow afterwards with the player telling Iffie what to do for the job, with Death himself intervening and telling the player that he also wants the job. The player selects Iffie as their accomplice at the end. Talk to Iffie once more, then talk to the bartender and select the pie option. In the next cutscene select any pie insult to distract the cook so Iffie can steal some of the kitchen's utensils.

Head south of the monastery, where you will find Iffie. Speak to her to enter a cutscene where you and her chase Oziach away by climbing trees and acting like ghosts. You must climb the three trees with a 'climb' option without being spotted by Oziach, or the cutscene will restart.

Speak to Iffie after the cutscene, after answering yes to provide her with her reward, you return to the Blue Moon Inn in Varrock for another cutscene. Once it completes, finish the dialogue to finish the event.

Congratulations, event complete!

Changes[edit | edit source]

Date Changes
20-30 October 2021

Two typos were fixed in Oziach's overhead dialogue in a cutscene.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • There are numerous references to previously released quests throughout the event, including (but not limited to) Recipe for Disaster and Monk's Friend. Completing certain quests will give the player new options to insult the cook's pumpkin pie that the player can reference.
  • The music tracks Getting Down to Business and Illusive play during cutscenes in the event, allowing free-to-play players to unlock these previously members-only tracks. This also allows Illusive to be unlocked without completing Dream Mentor.
  • During the event, after you recruited Iffie, an empty rocking chair is shown in the shop, still rocking. Examining it reveals the text "Where did Iffie go? And who is rocking the chair?!?"
  • If players attempt to use any items on the climbable evergreen tree, the chatbox will state I don't want to do that to this tree! This includes raw herrings and cooked herrings.
  • The LFG advert is a reference to an acronym used by players of multiplayer games looking for a group.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

In the cinematic action scene south of the Edgeville Monastery where the player and Iffie both desire to climb the trees to scare Oziach, if the player attempts to climb the evergreen trees on Iffie's side or too far down the path, Oziach cannot spot the player anymore. Leaving the instance or climbing the next correct tree resolves this.

Once Iffie has returned to Thessalia's Fine Clothes. store, if Iffie attempted to give the player their rewards but the player didn't have enough free inventory space, and the player then chooses to say they're not ready for the rewards, Iffie's dialogue abruptly continues to her being busy knitting:[note 1]
  • Iffie: Hello [player name]! Are you ready for your rewards now?
    • Yes!
      • Dialogue
      • (End of dialogue)
    • Not yet.
      • Player: Not yet.
      • Iffie: Come back when you are, I have something for you!
      • (Continues below)[sic]
  • Iffie: Sorry, dearie, if I stop to chat I'll lose count.
  • (End of dialogue)

Notes[edit | edit source]

  1. ^ Before the player's had a chat with Iffie first, her dialogue ends as intended:
    • Not yet.
      • Player: Not yet.
      • Iffie: Come back when you are, I have something for you!
      • (End of dialogue)
    After the player has claimed the rewards, she no longer talks about the Halloween event as intended, reverting back to her one-liner non-event dialogue:
    • Iffie: Sorry, dearie, if I stop to chat I'll lose count.
    • (End of dialogue)
