Greegrees are used for transforming into monkeys; however, their use is limited to the island of Ape Atoll, as Zooknock cannot use his magic over long distances (except for the Ardougne Zoo). When in monkey form, all monsters on the island become non-aggressive. Be advised that greegrees may not be equipped while in combat.

To make one, the player must take a monkey talisman and the corresponding materials to Zooknock at the very end of the Ape Atoll Dungeon. Initially, players are only able to obtain a talisman by talking to the Monkey Child on Ape Atoll while wearing a M'speak amulet. Once this talisman has been enchanted by Zooknock, additional talismans can be bought from Tutab's Magical Market for 1,000 coins each.

Greegrees are required during the Monkey Madness I and Monkey Madness II quests, as well as the Recipe for Disaster Awowogei subquest. After Monkey Madness II, Zooknock relocates to the Tree Gnome Stronghold and provides replacement greegrees without the need for any items, unless the player has lost their ancient gorilla greegree, in which case they will need to bring a new monkey skull.

The ninja and zombie monkey greegrees enable the player to use the Ape Atoll Agility Course or the wall of flame, respectively; the Kruk greegree can be used for the course or to capture maniacal monkeys through the Hunter skill.

While wielding a greegree, it appears that when using the prayer book from the Great Brain Robbery to cure poison, no prayer points will be used.[confirmation needed]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Players can be in monkey form while chopping the mahogany and teak trees in the Ape Atoll jungle, thus avoiding the aggressive monsters.
  • The small and big zombie monkey greegrees are the only ones that force the player to move slowly.
  • If a player attempts to alchemise a greegree, they will receive the chatbox message: The magic of the monkeys defies alchemy.
