Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

Starting out[edit | edit source]

Note: If you are only looking for the Ring of Charos(a), only doing this section will suffice. You will need 1 free inventory slot and (optional) 2 compost of any kind.

  • Talk to Ellamaria at the garden east of Varrock Palace. (Chat 1)
    • Optionally you could place your compost early in the 2 empty plant pots north to save inventory spaces after speaking to Ellamaria.
  • Talk to Ellamaria again to obtain the trolley. (Chat 1)
  • Talk to the Wise Old Man in Draynor Village north of the bank with the ring of charos. (Chat 1)
  • Quiz answers:
    • Show them a range of colours so that they can come to a compromise.
    • Take his generous gift even though you have no need for it.
    • It's absolutely, unquestionably the most interesting thing I've ever done!
    • Put on the silly helmet and jump into the cannon.
    • You of course Pkmaster0036, no one could ever challenge your greatness!
    • Ask me nicely and I might consider it.
    • No, especially not that wise old man, who doesn't look at all suspicious.

Gathering seeds[edit | edit source]

  • See to the survival of your crops as you see fit.
  • Always have on you: a rake, seed dibber, spade, secateurs, watering can, gardening trowel, and ring of charos(a). You may use the tool leprechauns by the patches.

Lyra north-west of Port Phasmatys[edit | edit source]

Items required: 3-6 onion seeds.

  • Talk to Lyra. (Chat 122222221)

  • Run over to Edgeville and throw the ring of charos(a) down the well.
  • Go back to the monastery and pick 4 seeds from the red, pink, and white roses.
  • Retrieve your ring with a fishing rod (this could take a few tries) or return to Fenkenstrain's Castle if you destroyed it.

Returning to planted crops[edit | edit source]

  • Return to Kragen north of Ardougne (Chat 1). You do not need to harvest the cabbages.
  • You may come back to these steps if the crops are not yet grown. Depending on what growth tick you planted on, your plants should be 80-90% grown by the time you reach this step (see "growth timing" under Mechanics on the Farming page).

Items required: 2 buckets of compost (super, ultra work as well. Bottomless compost will not work), a seed dibber, a rake, a spade and ring of charos(a), all acquired seeds.

  • Plant yellow orchids in the east pot, and pink orchids in the west pot.
  • Plant all acquired seeds in the palace garden according to their labeled plots.
    • Plant the White tree in the centre patch.
    • The White tree takes a long time to grow. You can reduce the time you must wait if you plant the tree just before a growth cycle.
  • Talk to Ellamaria for the trolley if you haven't already.

Lumbridge Castle[edit | edit source]

  • Use the trolley on the statue of a king (southern statue just outside Lumbridge castle gates).
    • If at any point you logout or lose your trolley, speak to Ellamaria to get another.

  • Talk to King Roald. (Chat 122)
    • Make sure you have the ring of charos (a) equipped when talking to King Roald or he will not follow you.
  • Watch the cutscene.
    • Warning: Interrupting the queen after the cutscene will cause it to play all over again!
