  • Talk to Sir Lancelot upstairs. (Chat 3)
  • Go to Catherby.
    • If you didn't bring a bucket of wax, grab insect repellent in the house north of the bank in Catherby.
    • Use the insect repellent on one of the beehives to the west with an empty bucket (a bucket can be found near the beehives) in your inventory to get a bucket of wax.

Inside the keep[edit | edit source]

  • Climb to the top floor. The Renegade Knights will attack you on your way up.
  • Attack Sir Mordred. He cannot be safespotted, but he can be flinched using the stairs (position him on the square left of the stairs whilst flinching from the square north-east of him). He can also be killed with rings of recoils or by another account poisoning and attacking right before his death.
  • When Sir Mordred reaches 0 hitpoints, Morgan Le Faye will appear and ask that you spare him. Spare his life to discover how to save Merlin. (Chat 12) **DO NOT INTERRUPT THE DIALOGUE, OR YOU WILL HAVE TO FIGHT SIR MORDRED AGAIN.**
    • If you don't already have bat bones, exit the keep through the west doors and kill a bat before leaving.
    • Can be recoiled down after dealing a 0 and not splashing Magic.
