RS forum info[edit source]

  • On the RS forums Mod Ash responds to "like not even 1% of the players craft chaos" with the remark "Which suggests that maybe it needed an update". Most hints are mentioning a new way to craft chaos runes.
  • The outlaws are near spirit tree north of Varrock

Other fansite quest guides[edit source]

No quest page up yet. --Miw 13:42, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

Why other site guide links?[edit source]

I don't get the comparison to the other fansites. Most people are in SCHOOL right now. The difference is that Wikipedia sites are not BLOCKED: RuneHQ and Tip.It and Crypt, etc ARE, making this a pointless ego massage. --Kang227 15:12, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

You mean wikis, and some of them are. And I don't see how this is an "ego massage". As far as I'm aware, we're just putting this here for interest. After all, if we didn't, we wouldn't actually know that we are the first site with quets guides.
We do not always succeed in being first either. This quest guide was up 15:30 (UTC) or thereabouts. Makes it another first for the wiki. Thanks to all contributors, especially Bob2006ty! --Miw 16:00, 27 March 2007 (UTC) your welcome miw, it's why im here ;-) Green partyhat.png Bob2006ty(RUNESTORM333)  talk Green partyhat.png
Most quest guides are not 100% complete and some contain errors. By listing the other guides, here on the talk page instead of the main article, we as editors can easily compare what info is available and make our articles more comprehensive. Chrislee33 16:11, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

Good point, I will upgrade this later when I have checked it against other sites, Green partyhat.png Bob2006ty(RUNESTORM333)  talk Green partyhat.png.

Wilderness warning[edit source]

Exiting the chaos altar through the portal will return you to wilderness. Yet, any teleport gets you out of the altar without passing through the wilderness. The altar area itself is not in wilderness. Perhaps add a word of caution to take a teleport (e.g. to Varrock) before doing the chaos altar part of the quest? --16:06, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

You don't need a teleport. If you enter through the tunnel under the statue of Saradomin, you can just take the same portal you entered with and you will end up back in the dungeon, never crossing through the wilderness. -12:58 27 March 2007 (EST)

A teleport warning is not required as it is the choice of the individual whether or not to use the abyss or the chaos maze to get to the altar, they now have the alternative of using the tunnel of chaos, which saves them having to venture into the wilderness in the first place.

Abyss[edit source]

It's still the best way :). Red partyhat.pngDreadnoughttalk 00:59, 28 March 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, that's what I figured. It's still the abyss + ancient magics or house teletablets and glory. But this way is by far the safest. 03:33, 28 March 2007 (UTC)

almost there[edit source]

Ok almost done now just needs some parts rewording to make better sense; I will check the other guides and use them to improve this one, then I will hopefully be able to de-stubify it. :-) Green partyhat.png Bob2006ty(RUNESTORM333)  talk Green partyhat.png 11am 28 march

All the links to Zaff's article?[edit source]

Are all the links to Zaff really required?

yes I think they are; since an article about him existed I thought we should do him some credit and added the links, I would do the same for any Npc featured in a quest, I would have done this for Surok, but no article currently exists.

More pics?[edit source]

I got the pic for infusing the wand, but I couldn't make one for the final battle scene in time =/, I'll try too next time, any more suggestions of what pics to add though? Magic emote.gifItalian ThiefFile:Smite old.png|18pxThird Power 19:48, 28 March 2007 (UTC)

I got a few. I'm thinking of editing and adding a few, though. Avian Maid Feather.png Talk 02:16, 29 March 2007 (UTC)

Trivia[edit source]

  • Not sure about this but could the sentence "all work and no play make me a dull adventurer" be related to the tv series Wildfire? One of Dani's most famous lines on the show is "all work and no play make Dani a dull girl."
I remember one time the login message was about "all work and no play makes Guthix(or some other god) a dull boy. Sysop crown.svg Megalodon99 (Talk) score 01:27, 29 March 2007 (UTC)
It's actually a variation of a proverb that has been around for ages. "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy." Avian Maid Feather.png Talk 02:15, 29 March 2007 (UTC)
It is old: wikipedia says the first occurance of that formulation is from 1659 - certainly The Shining is not the original! 16:36, 23 November 2008 (UTC)
  • When talking to Zaff, you say about either King Roald or the evil mage (whoever he was) "he may be disinclined to acquiese (need spelling on that one) to my request" I believe that this is a quote from Pirates of the Caribbean. Sysop crown.svg Megalodon99 (Talk) score 02:11, 29 March 2007 (UTC)
EDIT: The more I think about it, the more possible it seems. I'd say it would be fine to put that in the trivia if you say that it "may be" a quote from Pirates. Avian Maid Feather.png Talk 02:15, 29 March 2007 (UTC)
I added the Aphrodisiac referance in the trivia, though I didn't want to go further in explaining what it does, should I? Magic emote.gifItalian ThiefFile:Smite old.png|18pxThird Power 02:26, 29 March 2007 (UTC)
I think it's fine the way it is. Definitely doesn't need any more detail. Avian Maid Feather.png Talk 02:57, 29 March 2007 (UTC)
Alrighty ^_~ Magic emote.gifItalian ThiefFile:Smite old.png|18pxThird Power 14:45, 31 March 2007 (UTC)

What The...[edit source]

Trivia section says the outlaw monster is the first new F2P monster since Stronghold, Yet this quest is P2P only...I don't get it. {{Signatures/Total Rune}}08:51, 31 March 2007 (UTC)

You don't have to do the quest to fight the monster. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 14:39, 31 March 2007 (UTC)

Err, is it just me, or did King Ronald get fatter when you had to fight him?--Pkthis 03:30, 28 June 2007 (UTC)

boosts[edit source]

Can you use boosts in this quest?Horan c 15:36, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

Bronze pickaxe?[edit source]

Everywhere I look, it says I need a bronze pickaxe. Could I use any pickaxe, are they all the same, or is bronze the only one to work? Please respond on my talk page.--

3rd option?[edit source]

Could there be a 3rd option, namely: 1.2.3. Option 3: Use "Chaos altar teleport"Leon Art 23:41, March 20, 2011 (UTC)
