Wandering Ga'al is a miniquest that was released in January 2013 after players started looking for clues on how to find an ability to read the last bookcase from The Brink of Extinction quest.[1] As this wasn't originally intended, Mod Stu quickly came up with the wandering Ga'al idea and implemented the code for it. He then continuously gave hints towards finding the Ga'al on the forums.[2][3][4]

Wandering Ga'al[edit | edit source]

Meeting TzHaar-Ga'al-Kot after all the conditions are met.

TzHaar-Ga'al-Kot can be encountered any time after completing The Brink of Extinction, but only after performing the following steps, which are as follows:

  • Obtain all required obsidian shards before proceeding any further.
  • Equip at least one piece of obsidian equipment and donate 15,000 Tokkul to the coffer in the Fight Cauldron. This will boost the armour reduction effect of obsidian armour for the next 20 minutes. The next steps must be done within those 20 minutes.
  • Unequip any obsidian armour, TokHaar-Kal and fire capes you have equipped. Having any of these items equipped prevents you from seeing him.
  • Equip the uncharged Tokkul-Zo.
  • Leave TzHaar City with exactly 694 obsidian shards. This number must be equal to R÷10 rounded down, where R is the current Runedate, which may be found by reading the captain's log from Player Owned Ports.
    • For example: if the current Runedate is 4347.8, you will need 434 shards.
  • Use a ring of visibility on a ring of stone.

TzHaar-Ga'al-Kot will then appear, thanking you for finding him. Ask him if he's able to read the Ancient TzHaar language, and he will agree to meet you at the bookcase in the Fight Cauldron.

Miniquest complete!

Had to wait 'til the new year as no updates over Christmas. Also a little wait to get approval for the bookcase lore (named first elder god after Jas, etc)."
