Official difficultyNovice
DescriptionThe construction of a mysterious tower is almost complete, but the builders working on it have gone on strike. Losing patience, the alchemists that hired them are looking for anybody to help them. When the world of magic and the world of logic combine you can expect dangerous results, but a true adventurer would cherish such things... wouldn't they?

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

Location of trousers.
  • Talk to Effigy south of East Ardougne (south-west of fairy ring djp, Ardougne cloak monastery teleport and walk east, or minigame teleport to Fishing Trawler and walk north) to begin the quest. (Chat 1)
  • Talk to Bonafido, he will ask to get a builder's costume.
  • Wear the full costume. Talk to Bonafido and answer his questions. (Chat 2312)

Fixing up the tower[edit | edit source]

The supply crates.

Fix the pressure machine[edit | edit source]

  • Take the following supplies (by searching the crates inside the tower):
  • Head up the first staircase on the west side of the tower.
  • Fix the pressure machine on the north side of the room.
  • Complete the puzzle (turn the valves until all holes are plugged, pull the levers when necessary).
  • Once all the holes are plugged, make sure to turn the valves until all of the pipes are filled with water. You should see a message that says "The machine is working!" when you have completed the puzzle.

The first machine is the pressure machine upstairs that needs to be repaired. Once you have fixed it, calibrate it by filling the leaks with the coloured balls. Do this by turning the valves left and right until the ball falls into the leak hole, then turn the valve so the water reaches the top.

Pipe 2: Pull down the left lever, and then turn the 2nd valve left twice. Turn it right until the pipe is filled with water.

Pipe 4: Pull down the right lever and turn the 4th valve right three times, then left once. Turn it right until the pipe is filled with water.

Pipe 3: Lift the right lever back up, and turn the 3rd valve right twice and then left once. Turn it right until the pipe is filled with water.

Pipe 1: Lift up the left lever and turn the 1st valve left twice. Turn it right until the pipe is filled with water.

Fix the pipe machine[edit | edit source]

  • Take the following supplies:
  • Head up to the top floor of the tower.
  • Fix the cage.
  • Complete the puzzle. You should see a message that says "The cage is complete!" when you have completed the puzzle.
