Starting[edit | edit source]

The temple[edit | edit source]

Items required for this part: Pendant of lucien (given by Lucien when talking to him), the necessary bow listed above (yew or better), items to obtain a boots of lightness (knife or slash weapon and light source), stamina and energy potions for looting ice arrows, food. Your character must weigh -1kg or less for this part; boots of lightness reduce weight by 4.5kg.

  • Enter the temple directly south of the Ranging Guild by climbing down the ladder.
  • Go west down the stairs, slash the web, and take the boots of lightness (light source and knife or slash weapon required).
  • Go back upstairs, then through the north gate with the Pendant of lucien equipped.
  • Cross the lava bridge wearing the boots of lightness (weight must be -1 kg or less or you will not be able to cross and take 20 damage from falling), open the Large door, and take the lever.
  • Cross the lava bridge again and attach the lever to the lever-bracket on the wall a bit west of the ladder you climbed to enter the dungeon.
  • Pull the lever after attaching it. You will receive the prompt: "You hear the clunking of some hidden machinery."
  • Go through the south gate and follow the path.
  • Search chests along the icy path to obtain ice arrows. 16 with Ava's device and 60+ Ranged is enough.
    • Note: It is possible for the arrows to be in the same chest multiple times in a row. It is therefore recommended to search the chest again right after getting an arrow loot.
    • Note: You must search every chest after finding arrows to reset the chests, hopping worlds at 1 chest no longer resets them.

Killing the Fire Warrior[edit | edit source]

Items required for this part: Pendant of lucien, ice arrows, a bow that can fire ice arrows (yew or better), 20 un-noted limpwurt root. Items suggested: food and armour; if necessary, the limpwurt roots can be retrieved from a bank after killing the fire warrior.

  • Go back through the north gate with the Pendant of lucien equipped.
  • Continue straight north to a small room containing a lever.
  • Right-click the lever and search for traps. (Requires 42 Thieving) Then pull the lever.
  • Go west then north through the doors.
  • A Fire Warrior of Lesarkus will spawn in the room upon attempting to enter the second door.
  • Kill him with your ice arrows.
  • Give Winelda 20 unnoted limpwurt roots all at once.
  • Optional: follow the path to its end and take the shiny key to access this dungeon from McGrubor's Wood.
