Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

Getting started[edit | edit source]

Items required: 3 empty inventory spaces, 1 gold coin.

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. 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 southwest portion of the ground floor[UK]1st floor[US] of the castle. Talk to him and tell him that the Gypsy 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 northwest 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. Keep arguing until he reluctantly gives you the key, berating him on his clumsiness.

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. 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 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, you can find an empty bucket up the stairs and in the room to the 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. On your minimap, it will have a red exclamation mark. 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 an old rusty key to your left, next to a pile of skeletons. Pick it up.

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 Gypsy 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.

The music which plays when Delrith is summoned.

The final part 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.

Lower level 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.

Attack Delrith with Silverlight equipped. When he reaches 0 hitpoints, you will be prompted to say the magical incantation. If the wrong incantation is said, Delrith will regenerate to full health.

Be careful, it is possible to get soft-locked inside the instanced area. If you take too long to chant your incantation Delrith will despawn.

Congratulations! Quest complete!
