Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

All the important locations throughout the quest.

Starting out[edit | edit source]

Items needed: 1 inventory space, a slash weapon or a knife (if you need to obtain bat bones)

  • It is possible to use another player's Watchtower portal to go straight to the quest start. The easiest way to find one is to head to Rimmington on World 330 (House Parties) and find a host. Look for the "Yanille portal". Or you can teleport to the Nightmare Zone through the Minigame teleport. Another quick option is to teleport to "Monastery" with Ardougne Cloak 1.
  • Otherwise, climb the trellis outside the Yanille Watchtower, climb up the ladder.
  • Talk to the Watchtower Wizard. (Chat 111)
  • Climb down 2 ladders and search the far north-west bush to find fingernails.
  • Talk to the watchtower wizard. (Chat 11)

Getting the relic pieces[edit | edit source]

Items needed: 2 Ropes (one for each visit to Jangerberry island), dragon bones, a weapon and 1 empty inventory space.

  • If you have fairy ring teleports, use one now and enter the code CIQ, head west. If you use ring of dueling, teleport to Castle Wars and head East out of Castle Wars then North to the ogre camp.
  • Talk to Og NW of Yanille. (He will give you a Key, Make sure you have an available inventory space) (Chat 1)
  • Head south and swing onto the island using a rope with the branch of the western-most long-branched tree.
    • There are two long-branched trees, use the western-most one.
    • Take some jangerberries if needed.
  • Talk to Grew. (Chat 1)
  • If you have a Feldip Hills scroll, use that now. Otherwise, the fairy ring AKS is helpful. If you use ring of dueling, teleport to Castle Wars and run south past Jiggig.
  • Enter the hole south of Gu'Tanoth (the dungeon icon south of Jiggig, just NW of some ruins).
    • There is a death rune spawn south of the hole if needed.
  • Kill Gorad and take his tooth (be sure to have room in your inventory or you won't receive the tooth).
  • Talk to Toban. (Chat 11)
  • Talk to Toban again. Make sure you give him your dragon bones for Relic part 3.
  • Search the chest and take Toban's stolen gold.
    • Take the rope if a second one is needed.
  • Talk to Grew on the Jangerberry island (If you're using fairy ring CIQ, talk to Og first).
  • (From Jangerberry island) go back north and talk to Og.
  • Talk to the Watchtower Wizard, who will put the three relics together and hand it back over as an ogre relic.
    • Take a lit candle from the table on the bottom floor if needed.
