A chimp ice is an item used during the quest Do No Evil. It is initially bought from Rokuh in Nardah for 1,000 coins and a Monkeyspeak amulet mould after being instructed to deliver one to King Awowogei. According to Rokuh due to its peculiar shape, the chimp ice cannot contain the freezing-inducing magic normally applied to regular choc-ice and will thus melt away within a few seconds and turn into chocolatey goop. To prevent this from happening the player must freeze the item using the left-click option and cast any of the Ice spells from the Ancient Magicks spellbook on the chimp ice. The Ice Rush spell is not strong enough and does not refreeze the ice, but the higher level spells work, each giving a longer time-span between freezing and melting.
After the quest, chimp ice is sold by the chimp ice chimp in the centre of the monkey colony in the Kharidian Desert for 100 coins. Only one can be bought at a time and it serves no purpose other than to be delivered to King Awowogei, through the same process, for further rewards.
The use of a chimp ice enhancer will double the length of the chimp ice being frozen by an ice spell.
Activity tips and information[edit | edit source]
This activity is a repeatable continuation of bringing King Awowogei chimp ice through the same process as in the Do No Evil quest for further rewards. There are many similarities, but some differences too.
The use of any magic-based transportation results in the Chimp ice melting instantly. Allowed relevant methods of transportation include:
- Magic carpet
- Charter ship
- Balloon transport system
- Eagle transport system
- Shantay arrest
- Daemonheim boat (Lumbridge Swamp / Al Kharid and Taverley)
Gnome gliders cannot be used, as a cloud of "volcanic ash" will be over Karamja during the activity.
In order to freeze the treat, players can left-click on the chimp ice to bring up a text menu of the four ice spells, then select an ice spell and use it on the treat. The Wicked pouch cannot be used instead of runes.
Freezing the chimp ice resets the duration according to the type of spell cast; it does not add excess time. Ice Barrage (94) will reset the timer of the chimp ice from melting to approximately 1 minute, Ice Burst (70) will reset the ice to about 45 seconds, and Ice Blitz (82) will keep it frozen for about 35 seconds.
Be aware every 5th Chimp Ice bought from the Chimp Ice Chimp lasts only half the time. Preceded with the message "I'd eat that one extra quick. I left that one out in the sun." upon purchase.
You will be warned with a red message in your chatbox (similar to the messages warning you about dragonfire protection) of the status of your chimp ice.
- 20 seconds before melting, you will receive the message, "Your chimp ice is beginning to melt."
- 10 seconds before melting, you will receive the message, "Your chimp ice has nearly melted."
- When your chimp ice melts, you will receive the message, "Your chimp ice has melted."
It is useful to note that the chimp ice will not melt when using a bank, the world map, transportation such as carpets and eagles, and when talking to NPCs. Also a dripping sound will play every few seconds if it's melting.
Tactics[edit | edit source]
Below are the recommended tactics for both normal and fast melting chimp ices. Keep in mind that unlike during the Do No Evil quest there is no checkpoint at Lumdo if the chimp ice melts on Ape Atoll, and every 5th delivery of chimp ice will melt twice as fast, making the trip considerably harder.
Items to bring[edit | edit source]
- Transportation to Monkey Colony
- Ice spell runes and use Ancient Magicks (Magic weapon is not needed)
- Monkey speak amulet or Cramulet
- Monkey greegree
- Charges in the Balloon transport system
- Augmented weapon or armour piece with Mobile perk (optional)
- A piece of food (optional)
- Antipoison potion (optional)
- Run energy potion (optional)
- The Endurance Relic perk (optional)
Fastest chimp ice method[edit | edit source]
- Buy chimp ice at monkey colony, quickly use magic carpet to Shantay Pass (chat option 1) and freeze chimp ice on arrival.
- Arrive at Shantay Pass, continue North West then West out of Al Kharid to the Fremennik boat to Daemonheim.
- Use the boat from Daemonheim to Taverley (chat option 2).
- Freeze the chimp ice, go to the hot air balloon to the East, and take it to the Grand Tree.
- Arrive at the Grand Tree which is just to the North, take the ladder up one floor and run East to Daero, freeze the chimp ice before talking to him to travel (chat option 1).
- Arrive at the super secret glider hangar, take the glider with Waydar to Crash Island (chat option 1), then Lumdo to Ape Atoll (chat option 1).
- Arrive at Ape Atoll, freeze the chimp ice, run North West to the mahogany tree displayed on the minimap with a rare tree icon.
- Arrive at the mahogany tree remaining on the South side of it, freeze the chimp ice and then proceed to the gates with greegree on.
- Once through the gate, head East and follow the Southern outskirts of the city, do not cross the river. Once through the gate head slightly South remaining in the long grass, remove the greegree and freeze the chimp ice.
- Continue East to the small Summoning obelisk, unequip the greegree and freeze the chimp ice next to it. Continue East to king Awowogei in the small building just South of the temple. Talk to the Elder Guard gorilla at the entrance to gain access to the building (hold space to quickly pass through the chat).
Getting back to the colony[edit | edit source]
- Bandit camp teleport scroll (from Treasure Trails) then just run east to the colony.
- Home teleport to bandit camp lodestone
- Ring of slaying teleport to Pollnivneach then run west to the colony.
- House Teleport to Pollnivneach, run west to colony. (Setting the option to arrive outside the portal would be helpful.) Alternately, chip a house teleport tablet with a chisel (Requires Love Story quest).
- Ring of slaying teleport to Rellekka Slayer caves, then take fairy ring close to the Kalphite Hive and run south to the colony (ring code BIQ).
- Use the broomstick from Swept Away to teleport to the Sorceress' Garden activity, exit with fountain, run south through pass, take carpet to colony.
- Use amulet of glory or Home teleport spell to teleport to Al Kharid, then take the magic carpet to colony.
- Teleport with Desert amulet 2-4, rug merchant to colony.
- Use the Slayer cape to teleport to Sumona, then use the North-West rug merchant to colony.
Rewards[edit | edit source]
With each successful delivery you are rewarded with one of the following:
On some trips, players receive a cosmetic reward instead of one from the list above. These rewards are based on how many completed trips the player has made to King Awowogei.
- 5 Deliveries: First monkey statue
- 10 Deliveries: Second monkey statue
- 15 Deliveries: Third monkey statue
- 25 Deliveries: Monkey knife fighters (cannot be stolen from)
Players can speak to King Awowogei to learn how many chimp ices have been brought to him. The information is also available through Quick Chat. The chimp ice brought during the quest is not included and does not count for these rewards.
There are no special rewards beyond 25 deliveries.
Achievement[edit | edit source]
- Ice Ice Chimpy ( 25) – Complete 25 chimp ice deliveries.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Attempting to put the chimp ice in an Ice cooler will result in the following message: "Nice try, but the cooler isn't cold enough to keep the chimp ice frozen."
