Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

Getting started[edit | edit source]

Bring all required items for the quest with you.

  • Talk to King Arthur. (Chat 1)
  • Talk to Sir Gawain, who can be found in the courtyard to the south or nearby in the castle. (Chat 3)
  • 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.
  • Hide in the crate north of the candle maker's shop. (Chat 1) Wait and finish the cutscene. Climb out of the crate. (Chat 1)

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) Warning: 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.

Black candle[edit | edit source]

  • Talk to the candle-maker in Catherby. (Chat 1)
  • Talk to him again for a black candle.

Excalibur[edit | edit source]

  • Talk to The Lady of the Lake south-east of Taverley on the peninsula. (Chat 3)
  • Go to Port Sarim. (Make sure you have bread in your inventory.)
  • Enter the ring shop to the north.
  • Give the beggar your bread. (Chat 1) Finish the conversation.

Ritual[edit | edit source]

  • Go to the Zamorakian temple in the south-east corner of Varrock.
  • Check the Chaos Altar's inscription.
  • Return to Camelot with a tinderbox and enter the castle gates.
  • Go to the ritual site at the north-east corner of the Camelot castle grounds (a red star in the middle of 8 columns).
  • Stand on the star and light the black candle.
  • Drop the bat bones on the star.
  • The magic words are "Snarthon Candtrick Termanto".

Finishing up[edit | edit source]

  • Enter the castle and climb to the top of the south-east tower.
  • Smash the giant crystal with Excalibur. (Does not require 20 Attack, just use Excalibur on the crystal instead of attempting to wield it)
  • Talk to King Arthur.
