  • Take the invasion plans to the king. He will give you four letters made of sticks (you'll need 4 empty inventory spaces).

  • Bank if needed and prepare for the battle, then go down the trapdoor.

Encountering the Black demon[edit | edit source]

Items needed: Combat equipment and food to last in a fight against a level 172 Black demon.
Safespot 1: Recommended, located directly north of the entrance ladder.
Safespot 2: The safespot where Glough stands.
Warning: This safespot is dangerous, especially with low Hitpoints, due to the likelihood of being drawn into melee range and the Black demon having a max hit of 16.
  • After you enter and talk to Glough, a level 172 Black demon will appear and attack you.
    • Immediately after the cutscene ends, run to the tile directly north of the ladder. The Black demon will become stuck behind the mithril rocks in front of you as he approaches. Attack with Ranged, Magic, or a halberd.
    • Warning: The demon will despawn after a while if it is not killed within 10 minutes exactly. If this happens, you'll have to exit through the ladder in the centre of the cave and go through Glough's trapdoor again.
  • Kill the demon, walk along the passage until you find King Shareen standing by a ladder.
  • Talk to the king and he will ask you to locate the last Daconia stone. Fully complete the dialogue otherwise you cannot continue.
  • Search the roots until you find it (make sure to click continue on the dialogue when you find the stone).
