Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

Starting out[edit | edit source]

Use one of these routes to get to Mad Eadgar's Cave, using fairy rings and the eastern agility shortcuts result in the shortest travel time

(Required items: Vodka, Pineapple chunks, Climbing boots) (Recommended items: Ardougne Teleport tablet or runes, Prayer Potions, Food, Armour, and a Dramen Staff, Slayer Ring, Games Necklace, or Combat Bracelet to get to Eadgar's Cave quickly)

  • Talk to Sanfew (top floor of the Taverley herblore store) (if boosting Herblore, boost before talking to him) (Chat 11), or (Chat 211) if you have completed Zogre Flesh Eaters).
  • Talk to Eadgar in his cave at Trollheim. (See Map) (Chat 1)
  • (If you're not sure if you've freed Eadgar, check in his cave at the top of the Trollheim mountain, you should have freed him near the end of Troll Stronghold, you can also check your Troll Stronghold quest it will say : "I've rescued Godric and Mad Eadgar.".)
  • Travel west and enter the Troll Stronghold.
  • Run south and take the stairs down.
  • Talk to Burntmeat.
  • Travel to Ardougne Zoo, talk to Parroty Pete and ask him both questions.
  • Use vodka (right click it to avoid accidentally drinking it) on the pineapple chunks.
  • Use alco-chunks on the aviary hatch (west side of parrot cage).
  • Do not drop the parrot or it will fly away and you will need to retrieve it from Eadgar.
  • Use a Slayer Ring to teleport to the Fremennik Slayer Dungeon or a Dramen Staff with (code ajr) to minimise time spent walking to Trollheim

  • Return to Eadgar, talk to him.
  • Talk to Eadgar again.

Making the "human"[edit | edit source]

(Required items: Climbing boots, 2 Logs, Tinderbox, Pestle and mortar, 10 Grain, 5 Raw chicken, Ranarr potion (unf), Herblore boosting item if below 31)

  • Talk to Tegid in Taverley for a dirty robe. (He can be found SE of Herblore store) Pick up 10 Grain south of Doric's house if you need them. (Chat 2)
  • Return to Eadgar's cave and talk to Eadgar. Kill 5 chickens on the way at Tenzing's house if you need Raw chicken.
  • Pick a thistle near the patches of grass around Eadgar's cave entrance. (Note: Relog if you cannot find the thistle)
  • Talk to Eadgar. Give him the items and he will tell you how to make the potion.
  • Cook the thistle with your other log. ( You may also use one of the fires near the trolls to the west. )
  • Grind the dried thistle and add it to a ranarr potion (unf).
  • Talk to Eadgar.

Getting the goutweed[edit | edit source]

  • Go down the stairs in the northmost part of the kitchen to the storeroom.
  • Sneak to the back and take goutweed. Note:
    • You will take 0-6 damage if caught. Protect from missiles will negate this.
    • Run to the tile next to the goutweed, clicking on the goutweed to move to it will get you stuck on the guard.
    • It is highly recommended you take 2 extra goutweed for Dream Mentor and Dragon Slayer II.
    • If you stand on the same tile as the door and click search on the Goutweed Crate just before the two Guards meet right below the door you can run straight though. Flick Protect from Missiles to escape the menu and avoid damage from the sleeping Guard.
  • Give Sanfew the goutweed. (Chat 2)

Quest complete!
