Greegrees are used for transforming into a primate, however their use is bound to the island of Ape Atoll. When in the primate form, all monsters on the island become non-aggressive. There are nine different greegrees altogether: a Karamjan monkey greegree; a small and medium ninja monkey greegree; a Kruk monkey greegree; a small and big zombie monkey greegree; a normal, bearded, and blue faced gorilla greegree.

To make a greegree, a player must take a monkey talisman and the corresponding primate bones or corpse to Zooknock, who can be found in the Ape Atoll Dungeon. Each greegree transforms the player into the corresponding primate of the greegree when wielded. This effect is only in place on Ape Atoll as Zooknock cannot use his magic over long distances. Be aware that a greegree may not be wielded while in combat.

The greegrees are used in the Monkey Madness I and the Recipe for Disaster quests. At the very start of Monkey Madness I, players will only be able to obtain a Monkey talisman by talking to the crying child in the house to the west of the monkey settlement when wearing the Monkeyspeak amulet. When they have had the greegree charged by Zooknock, additional monkey talismans can be bought from Tutab's Magical Market for 1,000 coins each.

After Monkey Madness II you can get additional monkey greegrees from Zooknock without the need for bones or a talisman in the north-western house in the Gnome Stronghold directly to the north of the Gnome Ball arena entrance.

Additional information[edit | edit source]

There are mahogany and teak trees in the jungle outside Marim on Ape Atoll. With any enchanted greegree equipped, the creatures on the island will not be aggressive. The zombie monkey greegree (using the bones from the zombie monkeys in the dungeon) is very slow (you cannot run when using it).

You will need to wear the M'speak amulet to speak monkey. The greegree may be used in the Ardougne Zoo after the quest, but there are restrictions on where players may travel as a monkey.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Should players attempt to alchemise a greegree, a message appears in the chatbox saying, "The magic of the monkeys defies alchemy"
