Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

Getting started[edit | edit source]

Items needed: 3 empty inventory spaces, 1 gold coin.
Wally slaying Delrith.

Speak to Aris in the tent on the western side of Varrock Square. Pay her one coin, and she will tell you a story involving a demon named Delrith. The demon is being summoned again, and you have to kill him. Ask her, "So, how did Wally kill the demon?" Write down or screenshot what Wally says as it will be important later on. The word order of this spell is randomised per player. She tells you to talk to Sir Prysin to help.

Go north to Varrock Castle. Sir Prysin will be wandering the south-west portion of the ground floor[UK]1st floor[US] of the castle. Talk to him and tell him that Aris sent you. Ask for Silverlight, the weapon needed to kill Delrith. He will say that he kept it hidden because of it being so powerful and it needs three keys to open it. He will tell you that he lost his key somewhere, and the other two keys are in the possession of Captain Rovin and the Wizard Traiborn.

Captain Rovin's key[edit | edit source]

One of the keys may be obtained by speaking to Captain Rovin, who is found on the 2nd floor[UK]3rd floor[US] on the north-west side of the palace. Climb up the stairs in the north-west room twice in order to reach him.

Talk to him and tell him that you need the key in order to recover Silverlight, as a demon is going to invade the city, and that Sir Prysin mentioned that he would give the key to you. He will rant about the King being the only one to tell him what to do. Following this ask him why did Sir Prysin give it to you then. He'll state the king made him so he wouldn't lose it then hand over the key to you under the condition that you do not allow Sir Prysin to kill the demon.

Wizard Traiborn casts a spell to summon a wardrobe containing his key

Wizard Traiborn's key[edit | edit source]

Items needed: 25 unnoted bones.

Talk to Traiborn about some keys knocking around. He is located on the 1st floor[UK]2nd floor[US] of the Wizards' Tower, south of Draynor Village. Traiborn requires 25 regular bones for his spell. You can save time by having all of the bones with you when you first speak to him. An easy way to get the bones is to kill goblins south of the prison outside of Draynor Village. Give Traiborn the bones, and he will perform a ritual. When he's done with his ritual, he will give you his key.

Note for Ultimate ironman chat badge.png Ultimate Ironmen: You can deliver the bones in increments, so you do not need to clear out your inventory to complete this step.

Sir Prysin's key[edit | edit source]

Items needed: bucket of water.

Head back to Varrock palace.

Go into the kitchen located in the north-east corner of the ground floor[UK]1st floor[US]. If you do not already have a bucket of water, you can find an empty bucket up the stairs and in the bedroom to the north-east. Grab the bucket, go back down the stairs, and use the bucket on the sink in the kitchen or in a fountain to obtain a bucket of water. Next, head outside the kitchen door and look for a drain near the wall north of the doorway. Use your bucket of water on the drain. If you do not do this, you cannot obtain the key. The key will be washed down the drain into the sewer. Head east out of the palace, and look for a manhole located south of the palace's east walls. It is marked by the Dungeon icon.png icon on the minimap. Open and climb down the manhole.

The path to Sir Prysin's key in the sewers

Now, go north-west and follow the path highlighted on the map above until you reach a stream. You should see a muddy patch to your left, next to a pile of skeletons. Examine this and you will find a rusty key.

Banishing Delrith[edit | edit source]

Items recommended: food and armour.

Now that you have all three keys, head back to Sir Prysin in Varrock. Give him the three keys, and he will give you Silverlight. Players can drop Silverlight and ask Sir Prysin for another one for free; after the quest he will charge 500 coins. Equip it and get any food and armour you may need for combat.

If you have forgotten the magical incantation, you can speak with Aris at her tent in Varrock Square to hear them again. Take note of the incantation words - it is different per player.

The dark wizards attempt to summon Delrith!

If you are ready, head south of Varrock and then east towards the stone circle surrounded by dark wizards. A cutscene of Delrith being summoned by the wizards is shown after first entering the circle for the final part of the quest.

Delrith is summoned!

The final part takes place in an instance of the Varrock stone circle, with Delrith and several dark wizards. To leave, run to the edge. Level 7 and 20 wizards will be aggressive to players with lower than 15 or 41 combat level, respectively. Their maximum hit of 6 can threaten players with a low Hitpoints level, especially if the player has negative Magic Defence bonus.

Because the fight takes place in a single-way combat zone, if you are already under attack from a dark wizard, you will need to kill or hide from the attacking wizard before you are able to begin combat with Delrith. It is recommended for lower level players to approach from the south to hide from wizards behind the southernmost stone wall until Delrith is nearby. Ring of recoils can be used.

Attack Delrith with Silverlight equipped. Despite his combat level of 27, the Silverlight's weakening effect will reduce Delrith's hitpoints to less than that of a cow. When he reaches 0 hitpoints, say the magical incantation. If the wrong incantation is said, Delrith regenerates to full health.

Alternatively, for non-melee pures with magic, players can wield Silverlight and manual cast spells to quickly finish-off Delrith. Other methods, include flinching Delrith or, for low-levelled mages, using Confuse, Curse, or Weaken to make him easier to kill with melee.

If you take too long, Delrith will disappear and you will need to leave and re-enter the instance, so use whatever you can to remember the incantation before the fight. However, if Delrith disappears during the dialogue to banish him the quest can still be completed by pressing "continue" until the end.

Congratulations! Quest complete!
