Talking to Kaeqemeex[edit | edit source]

Before accepting the quest[edit | edit source]

  • Choose an option:
    • Talk about Druidic Ritual.
      • Kaqemeex: What brings you to our holy monument? I sense the hand of Guthix in your arrival. Maybe you can help me with something.
      • Select an option
        • What do you need help with?
          • Unknown condition (likely completion of Burthorpe path):
            • Kaqemeex: I have a worthwhile quest for you, actually. I have heard you have been quite instrumental in helping hold back the troll invasion.
            • (Continues below)
          • Unknown condition (likely non-completion of Burthorpe path):
            • Kaqemeex: I have a worthwhile quest for you, actually. You have about you the air of a wandering hero, and I sense you can aid us.
            • (Continues below)
          • Kaqemeex: You are aware, are you not, that we worship Guthix; the god of balance?
          • Select an option
          • Kaqemeex: Guthix is the oldest and most powerful god in Gielinor. His existence is vital to this world. He is the god of balance, and nature. He exists in the trees and the flowers; the water and the rocks. He is everywhere. His purpose is to ensure balance in everything in this world and, as such, we worship him.
          • Kaqemeex: Well, anyway, we wish to contribute our strength to those soldiers who are fighting to protect us. However, Guthix sits in balance on the matter. All the omens show that he favours neither side more than the other, because on a global scale the trolls' chaos and disorder are relatively minor.
          • Player: How can I help with this?
          • Kaqemeex: In Taverley there is a herbalist, Sanfew. He is researching a potion we can offer to Guthix to bring our plight to his attention. The trolls represent disorder. For us it os a major, immediate imbalance of the elements of harmony. But we need to call upon Guthix to right it will all haste. The potion is specifically called the ointment of imbalance. If it is applied to the stone it will call Guthix's attention to our plight. Once he sees the chaos the trolls have brought, he will turn his power against them, and our star will once more be in the ascendant. I would ask you hero, to go and help Sanfew with whatever he requests. With your help I am sure we can create the potion and perform the ritual.
          • (Quest Overview interface opens.)
            • Not right now
              • Player: No, that doesn't sound very interesting.
              • Kaqemeex: I will not try and change your mind adventurer. Some day when you have matured you may reconsider your position. We will wait until then.
            • Accept quest
              • Player: Ok, I will try and help.
              • Kaqemeex: Excellent. Go to the last house on this side of the riverbank to the south of Taverley and speak to Sanfew who is working on the potion for the ritual. He knows what is required to complete it thanks to his studies.
              • Player: Will do.
        • Who are you?
          • Kaqemeex: We are the druids of Guthix. We worship our god at our famous stone circle.
          • Select an option
            • Are you the head priest here?
              • Kaqemeex: We druids do not believe in the concept of a 'head priest' as such. We are all equally skilled and of equal importance in the eyes of Guthix.
              • Player: But doesnt[sic] that make things confusing? How do you get anything done?
              • Kaqemeex: While it may be confusing to the uninitiated like yourself, it works quite well in practice. Consider the mighty oak tree...
              • Player: The oak tree?
              • Kaqemeex: Exactly. The tree is strong only because the rains replenish it and the earth nourishes it. If the earth was dry, it would not grow, and in turn would not support the insects, the birds, the squirrels...
              • Player: The lumberjacks?
              • Kaqemeex: Well...in a way you are right...as the felling of the trees opens space for fresh growth. I feel this description is getting a little away from me. In the end, if I issue an order it will be obeyed only if my peers feel that it is a worthy order to follow.
              • Select an option
            • Well you are all druids, but what about you personally?
              • Kaqemeex: I am the druid Kaqemeex. Holder of the skill cape of Herblore.
              • Player: Cakemix? Your name is Cakemix?
              • Kaqemeex: No...My name is Kaqemeex. Ka-Q-e-ME-ex. The emphasis is on the 'q' and the 'me'. I can't understand how so many people get that wrong. Tell me, why are you trying not to laugh?
              • I'm not! I just...thought I was going to sneeze is all.
              • Kaqemeex: The woods are in bloom; maybe you have hay fever. I think we have a potion for that somewhere.
              • (See above)
            • So what can you tell me about Guthix?
              • Kaqemeex: Guthix is the oldest and most powerful god in Gielinor. His existence is vital to this world. He is the god of balance, and nature. He exists in the trees, and the flowers, the water and the rocks. He is everywhere. His purpose is to ensure balance in everything in this world, and as such we worship him.
              • (See above)
            • Well, I'll be on my way now.
              • Kaqemeex: Goodbye adventurer. I forsee we shall meet again.
        • Did you build this?
          • Kaqemeex: What, personally? No, of course I didn't. However, our forefathers did. The first druids of Guthix built many stone circles across these lands over eight hundred years ago. Unfortunately, we only know of two remaining, and of those only one is usable by us.
          • Select an option
    • Can you tell me what I need to do to earn a skillcape of Herblore?

Before speaking to Sanfew[edit | edit source]

  • Choose an option:
    • Talk about Druidic Ritual.
      • Kaqemeex: Hello again. To continue in your quest you will need to speak to my fellow druid Sanfew in his house to the south of Taverley.
    • Can you tell me what I need to do to earn a skillcape of Herblore?
      • (Non-quest dialogue)

Talking to Sanfew[edit | edit source]

First time[edit | edit source]

  • Sanfew: What can I do for you young 'un?
  • Select an option
    • I've been sent to help make an ointment of imbalance for Kaqemeex.
      • Sanfew: Have you now? Well, aren't I the lucky one? You may be good at bashin' trolls, young 'un, but this will take a little more thinking for you to get done. I've got a list of things I need you to retrieve for the potion. Don't you go worrying about mixing it up, just leave that to me. Now, let me see, what was it I needed again? Oh, I remember. I need you to get me a vial of 'untainted living water'.
      • Player receives vial.
      • Sanfew: Here, I'll even give you a vial as you seem to be lackin' one.
      • Player: Thanks!
      • Sanfew: After that, you can get me some wandering wyrmwood. And while you are by the lake, you can catch me a stone fish and get some of the scales.
      • Select an option
        • Where can I find the water?
          • Sanfew: It is said that there is a spring of living water. I've heard some trolls have gone and mucked about with it. But what we need is untainted by whatever modern hokum they have brought. Just take a vial and fill it up from that water source. That's all you need from there.
          • (Shows other options)
        • Where can I find the wandering wyrmwood?
          • Sanfew: Well I heard there is a patch of land on the southern shore of the lake to the south of Taverley where the ground is so fertile the plants can get up and walk. You can't really miss it because of...you know...all the plants walking around. Wait until one of the gets up and walks off, then pluck some leaves off it. If you try it when it is still planted it will not work, as if it has to be from wandering, wandering wyrmwood.
          • (Shows other options)
        • Where can I find the stone fish?
          • Sanfew: The magic in the lake to the south of Taverley makes stone fish appear from time to time. The pebbles at the bottom of the lake just up and start swimming about, and before you know it, they've turned into a fish. They love gold, so go down there and bait a hook with a gold coin and you'll be sure to catch one. I don't need the whole thing, just scrape off some of the scales with a chisel and let it go free again.
          • (Shows other options)
        • Ok, I'll do that then.
      • Sanfew: Well thank you very much! So nice to see some polite young people around for a change.
    • Actually, I don't need to speak to you.
      • Sanfew: Well, we all make mistakes sometimes.

Before getting the ingredients[edit | edit source]

  • Sanfew: Did you bring me the required ingredients for the potion?
  • Select an option
    • What items did you want me to get again?
      • Sanfew: Trouble with your memory eh young 'un? I blame all that loud music and fancy dancin' you lot get up to. I need you to get me a vial of 'untainted living water' from down in the enchanted cave.
      • You can get there through a cave entrance near the fishing spot to the north-west.
      • Sanfew: You can get me some wandering wyrmwood from down by the lake to the south of Taverley. They grow down to the south of the lake, in a tangle of other weeds. It's where the water's power is strongest. I need you to catch me a stone fish from the lake to the south of here and get some of the scales. Last I heard, there was a spot where those fish liked to congregate, over to the west of the lake.
      • (Continues above)
    • I'll get on with it.
      • Sanfew: Good, good. Guthix be with you.

Getting the ingredients[edit | edit source]

Living water[edit | edit source]

Filling the vial at the subterranean spring:

  • Player has vial removed from them.
  • Player receives living water.
  • You fill the vial from the source of untainted living water.

Stone scales[edit | edit source]

Baiting at Sparkling Fishing Spot:

  • Player has one coin removed from them.
  • You catch the stone fish!

Baiting again with a stone fish in the inventory:

  • You don't need to fish here anymore.

Gathering scales with a knife:

  • The stone fish is too tough to use a knife to get the scales. You should try a chisel instead.

Gathering scales with a chisel:

  • You carefully chip some scales from the stone fish.

Wandering wyrmwood[edit | edit source]

  • You pluck some wyrmwood from the strange, wandering plant.

Returning to Sanfew with ingredients[edit | edit source]

  • Sanfew: Did you bring me the required ingredients for the potion?
  • If the player brought Sanfew a stone fish:
    • Player: I brought the stone fish you asked for.
    • Sanfew: Now, did I ask for the whole fish, or the scales?
    • Player: The...whole fish?
    • Sanfew: ...No. I just need some scales. Chip some off with a chisel and let that poor fish go!
    • (Continues above)
  • If the player brought an ingredient:
    • Player: Yes, here you go.
    • Player has ingredient(s) removed from them.
    • Sanfew: That's the stuff!
    • If the player did not bring Sanfew all the ingredients:
    • If the player brought all the ingredients:
      • Sanfew: Well, now I think about it, you've got it all for me! Right. Let's get this potion sorted then.
      • Sanfew mixes up the potion.
      • Sanfew: There we go. Now, take this back to Kaqemeex at the stone circle and we'll be fixed up and ready!
      • Screen fades in and out. The player appears at the stone circle, with Kaqemeex, Sanfew and the other druids gathered around the altar of Guthix.

The Druidic Ritual[edit | edit source]

  • Kaqemeex: Guthix, lord of balance, hear us! In the name of all beasts and plants, from the humblest mouse to the mightiest of dragons. From the tiniest blade of grass to the tallest oak...
  • Sanfew: What are you gabbling about, young Kaqemeex? The ritual just calls for you pouring the Ointment[sic] on the stone. Are you trying to put us all to sleep?
  • Kaqemeex: Well forgive me for trying to add a little gravity to the moment.
  • Kaqemeex pours the ointment on the stone circle.
  • Kaqemeex: Accept our sacrifice, Guthix; witness our devotion!
  • Short pause.
  • Sanfew: Well, did it work?
  • A beam of light shines on the altar and flora grows around it.
  • Kaqemeex: I feel that our prayers have been answered. Guthix's will has turned against the trolls!
  • Sanfew: Well, this calls for a celebration! Where's the mead?
  • Screen fades in and out.
  • Congratulations! Quest complete.
  • Kaqemeex: Don't forget, these notes must be exchanged at a bank for real items before you can use them in your Herblore studies.

Post-quest dialogue[edit | edit source]

Kaqemeex[edit | edit source]

  • Choose an option:
    • Talk about general things.
      • Kaqemeex: Welcome back to our circle. Tell me, how are you progressing with your Herblore?
      • Choose an option:
        • Very well, thank you.
          • Kaqemeex: That is good to hear.
          • Choose an option:
            • So, do you think the ritual has had any effect?
              • Kaqemeex: I feel it has. The hand of Guthix is upon the land now, and in time he will turn the tide to favour us again.
              • Player: How long do you think that will take?
              • Kaqemeex: These things will happen at the allotted pace. A year seems as but a moment to Guthix.
              • Player: A year? You mean I went running around to gather all those items when it could be a year until anything happens?
              • Kaqemeex: I am unsure what you expected. Did you think we would perform the ritual and Guthix would leap out of the sky and beat the trolls personally?
              • Player: Well...
              • Kaqemeex: I find your grasp of theology to be a little tenuous. I suggest you study the mysteries of the gods and seek wisdom through meditation.
              • (Shows other options)
            • Can you explain the fundamentals of Herblore?
            • Can you tell me what I need to do to earn a skillcape of Herblore?
        • I need more practice at it...
        • Can you explain the fundamentals of Herblore?
          • Kaqemeex: Indeed I will... I will now explain the fundamentals of Herblore: Herblore is the skill of working with herbs and other ingredients to make useful potions and poison. First you will need a vial, which can be made with the Crafting skill, found or bought. Next, you must gather the herbs needed to make the potion you want. Refer to the Herblore skill guide for the items needed to make a particular kind of potion. You must fill your vial with water and add the ingredients you need. There are normally two ingredients for each type of potion. Bear in mind that you must first clean each herb before you can use it. You may also have to grind some herbs before you can use them - you will need a pestle and mortar to do this. Herbs can be found on the ground and are also dropped by some monsters when you kill them. Let's use Attack potion as an example: The first ingredient is guam leaf; the second is eye of newt. Mix these two ingredients in your water-filled vial and you will produce an Attack potion. Drink this potion to temporarily increase your Attack level. Different potions also require different Herblore levels before you can make them. Once again, check the instructions found in the Herblore skill guide for the levels needed to make a particular potion. Good luck with your Herblore; good day, adventurer.
          • Player: Thanks for your help.

        • Can you tell me what I need to do to earn a skillcape of Herblore?
    • (If the player is under level 99 Herblore:)
      • Can you tell me what I need to do to earn a skillcape of Herblore?
        • Player: Can you tell me what I need to do to earn a Skillcape of Herblore?
        • Kaqemeex: Sure, to earn the right to wear any skillcape you need to have mastered that skill to the highest level possible and it is no different for Herblore. When you have achieved a level of 99, come back and talk to me again.
