Ancient cave[edit | edit source]

Items needed: Soft clay and a mithril bar.
Items recommended: An antifire or super antifire potion, and combat equipment to fight a dragon.
  • Recommended to bring games necklace, slayer ring, or slayer cape for quick teleport.
  • South of Kuradal in the ancient cavern is an ancient door along the Western wall. Try to open the door, then use your soft clay on it.
  • Go to the mithril dragons. (Head north, go down the Rough hewn steps, then up the stairs north east.) Attack a mithril dragon, then use your mithril bar on the dragon.
  • Open the Ancient door with the key. (Chat 1)
  • Kill the dragon.
  • After the cutscene run west to the stepping stones.
    • Optional: Talking to Sakirth will lower your life points to 10 - you can then ask him some questions
  • Jump diagonally to the chest and open the chest, then continue north.
  • Don't step on any pressure plates. Push the crates out of your way (you are able to push the 2 crates in a line).
    • Push the first eastern crate north twice.
    • Walk around to the middle and push the two crates north twice.
    • Push the eastern crate to the east twice, then push the northern-most crate to the west once.
    • Push the crate to your south once, and walk to the door.
  • Open the east door and search the chest.
  • Read the notes and equip the dragonkin protective charm.
  • Enter the bottom floor of the Grotworm Lair near Port Sarim.
  • Climb the stairs in the centre of the open area, west of the Queen Black Dragon entrance.
  • Defeat Tarshak, avoiding his charge attack by fleeing from him. He can hit quite hard even if players are wearing tank armour, so Protect from Melee or Deflect Melee are advised.
  • Talk to Phalaks. (Chat 5)

Final fight[edit | edit source]

  • Take lots of high-healing food, including a full BoB if possible. Wear the Dragonkin protective charm at all times, and pray against melee.
  • Defeat Abomination in the Brimhaven Dungeon in the tunnel found in the south-west corner where steel dragons are.
  • Stage 1:
    • Focus on mining the 4 pillars in the room while avoiding his attacks. Surge, double surge, and bladed dive can be useful in avoiding damage from the Abomination's rotating beam of fire.
      • His charge attacks are often not aimed at the player, meaning you don't always need to move.
    • When a pillar cannot be mined any more, lure a fireball attack into the pillar.
    • Repeat until all 4 pillars are broken.
    • A good strategy is to stand near the pillar and take the fireball damage, this guarantees the destruction of the pillar as long as it is no longer minable.
  • Stage 2:
    • Lure Tarshak into the falling rocks, don't stand too close yourself.
    • You may also attack with a regular weapon at the same time.
    • Once Tarshak reaches 458 life points, he will no longer take damage from falling rocks, and you must deal the final blow yourself.
  • Watch the cutscene. (Chat ~)
  • Return to Freya and Alfrick in Rellekka. (Chat 1)
  • Enter the cave and pass the door.
  • Talk to Freya or Alfrick.
  • Quest complete!
