Starting off[edit | edit source]

Note: If you are wearing any Saradomin or Guthix items, the mage will NOT speak with you. Therefore, it is best to unequip any and all god related items (with the exception of Zamorakian items) before starting a conversation with the mage of Zamorak. Simply putting the items in your inventory is enough, you don't need to bank them.

  • Talk to the mage back in Varrock at the Zamorak chaos temple (south-east of Aubury's Rune Shop).
  • Ask him where he gets his runes from when the question is available. He will tell you about the Abyss and that he is having problems. Say that you will help him.
