Walkthrough[edit | edit source]
Talk to Duke Horacio on the 1st floor[UK]2nd floor[US] of Lumbridge Castle, and ask him if he has any quests to give out. He will explain that although he himself has no tasks for the player, he did find a strange talisman. Curious about its origin, he will give you an air talisman and ask you to bring it to the arch mage of the Wizards' Tower. Note that at this point, it is possible to use the drop trick to collect any amount of spare air talismans, either for banking some Runecraft experience on ironman accounts, or for making a small amount of money. See the money making guide for more info.
Go to the Wizards' Tower, which is south of Draynor Village. Once there, descend the ladder into the basement and converse with Archmage Sedridor. He will take your air talisman and give you a research package. He will then instruct you to deliver it to Aubury in Varrock.
Congratulations, quest complete!
