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.
- 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.
- Talk to the Wise Old Man in Draynor Village north of the bank with the ring of charos.
- Quiz answers:

- 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.
