Gorilla greegree (blue) detail.png

Greegrees are used for transforming into a non-human primate, however their use is bound to the island of Ape Atoll and the Ardougne Zoo. When in the primate form, all monsters on the island become non-aggressive.

To make a greegree, a player must take a monkey talisman and the corresponding primate bones or corpse to Zooknock, who can be found in the Marim dungeon. Each greegree transforms the player into the corresponding primate of the greegree when wielded. This effect is only in place on Ape Atoll as Zooknock cannot use his magic over long distances.

The greegrees are used in the Monkey Madness, Recipe for Disaster, and Do No Evil quests. At the very start of Monkey Madness, players will only be able to obtain a Monkey talisman by talking to the crying child in the house to the west of the monkey settlement when wearing the Monkeyspeak amulet. When they have had the greegree charged by Zooknock, additional Monkey talismans can be bought from the Magic stall for 1,000 coins each.

Swapping greegrees[edit | edit source]

The interface showing available greegrees to choose from upon swapping them.

The different greegrees can be combined by using one on another. This adds both of the greegrees to a list that can be accessed via the Swap option on any of the greegrees that the player owns, and in the process deletes the greegree that was used on the other. The greegree can then be turned into any of the greegrees by selecting it in the list. The greegree cannot be swapped into another while it is equipped, but it is possible to equip another to change forms.

NOTE: It is possible to swap a greegree that has not been used on another, and therefore has not been added to the swap interface. Doing so will change the greegree and will unlock the swap option.
