Details[edit | edit source]

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

Getting started[edit | edit source]

Items required: 1 coin, 3 empty inventory spaces

Wally's Theme
The music which plays while the Gypsy describes Wally's victory.

Speak to the Gypsy in the tent on the western side of Varrock Square.

The Gypsy will tell you a story involving a demon named Delrith after paying her one coin. The demon is being summoned again, and you have to kill him. Ask her, "So, how did Wally kill the demon?" Write down what Wally says (screenshot) 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.

Inside the Varrock Castle, go near the room south-west, near the stairs in the middle. Sir Prysin should be walking around.

Tell Sir Prysin that the Gypsy sent you. Ask for the 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.

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. In the Varrock Castle, go to the north-west room. Climb up the stairs two times until you reach Captain Rovin.

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. Keep arguing until he reluctantly gives you the key, berating him on his clumsiness.

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

Wizard Traiborn's key[edit | edit source]

Items required: 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. Trailborn requires 25 regular bones for his spell. To find easy bones, go south east of Draynor Village near the jail to farm goblins. Give him the bones and Traiborn 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 required: 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, first go up the staircase and then go into the room to the east for a bucket. Grab it. Now, go back down, and in the kitchen, look for a sink. Use the bucket with the sink to make a bucket of water.

The path to Sir Prysin's key in the sewers

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 second key will have fallen down the drain, into the sewers. Head east out of the palace, and look for a manhole located south of the palace's east walls. On your minimap, it will have a red exclamation mark. Open and climb down the manhole. Now, go north-west and follow the path highlighted on the map above until you reach a stream. You should see an old rusty key to your left, next to a pile of skeletons. Pick it up.

Banishing Delrith[edit | edit source]

Items required: 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 the Silverlight. Players can drop the Silverlight and ask Sir Prysin for another one for free; after the quest he will charge 500 coins. Make sure that you equip it.

Lower-level players may want to get some armour and food at this point.

In case you forgot the magical incantation, speak with Gypsy Aris (at her tent in Varrock Square). 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!

Danger Ahead
The music which plays when Delrith is summoned.

The final part now takes place in a setting containing Delrith and fourteen wizards, with the surroundings darkened, isolated from any other activity in the area. Lower-level players should be aware that the wizards are aggressive to players less than double their level plus an additional level, and use magical attacks entering the circle for the final part of the quest.

Lower levelled players should consider approaching the stone circle from the south rather than from the north, which makes it easier to get Delrith attacking you, and not the wizards. A Ring of recoil can be used to make the fight easier. Beware, if you die inside the instanced area, it is not possible to retrieve the items you have lost.

Attack Delrith with the Silverlight equipped. When he is weakened at 0 hitpoints, say the magical incantation, which will appear automatically. If the wrong incantation is said, Delrith will regenerate to full health.

Congratulations! Quest complete!
