Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

Outpost location
Jorral chathead.png

Talk to Jorral in the outpost just north-west of West Ardougne. It is directly south of the Tree Gnome Stronghold (One can use a Necklace of passage and teleport to The Outpost). In order to save the outpost from King Lathas, the player will need to talk to Erin the silver merchant, Droalak the ghost, and Dron the warrior. They can be visited in any order, and the player does not need to revisit Jorral until they've met all characters. Before all of this, Jorral takes you into a cutscene.

Note: If the door is open when talking to Jorral, occasionally an aggressive hobgoblin can attack you during the cutscene, which will cancel the dialogue afterwards and force you to watch the cutscene

The Enchanted key cannot be used to find additional treasure until this quest is complete. If the player uses the key, they get the message, "You have already found the chest" (if not opened to get the journal yet) or, "You have already found the journal". If the player has already given the journal to Jorral, the message is, "You've already delivered the journal."

Erin the silver merchant[edit | edit source]

Note: Erin won't talk to you if you've recently stolen from his stall. Talk to Erin, the Silver merchant, in East Ardougne. He is at the northwestern stall in the central market. He will tell you about his great grandfather, and that he has an Enchanted key. Ask him if you can borrow it and he will agree. The key changes temperature as you walk.

Teleport to Castle Wars (ring of dueling or minigames teleport) and cross both of the bridges to the North until you are around 4 steps North from the East side of the second bridge. As soon as you feel that the Enchanted key is steaming, take out your spade and dig to find a Chest. Use the Enchanted key to open it and you will find a Journal.

Droalak the ghost[edit | edit source]

Locations of Droalak (blue) and Melina (red).

Items required: Ghostspeak amulet, Sapphire amulet. Get ecto-tokens by using the bones in the bone grinder on the floor above, slime from the trapdoor west of the fountain, and use those items on the fountain. then talk to a ghost disciple to claim your ecto-tokens.

Travel to Port Phasmatys; if Ghosts Ahoy has not been completed, you must pay two ecto-tokens to the town guards. The port can be reached by Charter Ship to Port Phasmatys or use Fairy ring ALQ. (Fairy Ring still requires ecto-token) Once in Port Phasmatys, head to the general store. Then talk-to Droalak in, or around the general store.

He will give the player a scroll if they give his wife, Melina, a strung sapphire amulet. Melina is in the building directly east of the general store. (To make a strung sapphire amulet if you don't already have one, use a gold bar on a furnace while having a cut sapphire and amulet mould in your inventory. Then use a ball of wool on the unstrung sapphire amulet, to get a strung sapphire amulet.)

After giving Melina the amulet, the player must go back to Droalak to receive the scroll.

Dron the warrior[edit | edit source]

Go to Rellekka. Talk to Dron's brother, Blanin (He can be found near the Dairy churn, East of the Longhall). Go north of Skulgrimen's Battle Gear, and speak to Dron. He can be found close to the northernmost dock. He will quiz the player on the information that Blanin gave them. Dron will ask various questions; these are the answers (in the order used);

To get through the conversation quick, here are the numbers you can press (for the whole conversation): 3, 2, 2, 1, 2, 1, 2, 2, 1, 3, 3, 1, 1, 1.

  • He wields an iron mace in battle.
  • He eats rats for breakfast.
  • He eats kittens for lunch.
  • He eats bunnies for tea.
  • His favourite drink is red spider blood.
  • He is 36 years, 8 months (21 days) old.
  • He studies the Fifth and Fourth ages.
  • His house is on the northeast side of town.
  • His brother's name is Blanin.
  • His pet cat is named Fluffy.
  • 5 and 7 is 12

After answering the questions, Dron will reveal part of the outpost's history. That involving two friends battling each another at the outpost. With one siding with Zamorak, and the other Saradomin. It's later learned they both stand down, after observing the destruction of the battle, choosing the side of Guthix. And, later one becomes King of Ardougne, and the other runs the marketplace.

Back to Jorral[edit | edit source]

Give everything to Jorral. He'll give the player a letter to take to the king of East Ardougne. King Lathas can be found upstairs in his castle in central Ardougne just across the river. He will give back a letter to take to Jorral, in which he promises not to tear down the outpost. After taking it to Jorral, Jorral will make a museum out of the outpost.

Congratulations! Quest complete!

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • If you visit Droalak after the quest, the player's character will tell him that they have delivered the scroll and it was of good use. Droalak finally rests in peace.
  • When the quest is completed, Jorral will tell you there is something that may interest you in his museum. If you search the bookcase and choose the book titled 'The Mysterious Adventurer', it will be a book written about your character, telling you stories of some of your completed quests.
  • Jorral's quote "Do you want to know more?" at the beginning of the quest is a reference to a repeated line in the 1997 film Starship Troopers.
  • If you talk to Jorral right before completing this quest whilst having a master clue in your inventory, he will reply with '"Stop! I can't help you unless you help me out first." To which your character replies "Okay then, moving on ..." and continues the dialogue of the quest.
  • Studying the 'Large Display' when the museum is built, shows Wally's helmet. Recall, during the 'Demon Slayer' Quest, Wally is seen defeating Delrith the Demon in a flashback 150 years ago.
  • Also, displayed in the museum is 'The axe of Arrav'. It was left behind by an adventurer on a quest to find 'The shield of Arrav', needed to save the people of Avarrocka.
