|Release date||31 January 2012 (Update)|
|Start point:||Speak to Kaqemeex in the stone circle South of the Heroes' Guild|
|Items required:||Items from the toolbelt do not need to be listed unless that version won't work, or aren't automatically added to it. |
|Enemies to defeat:||None|
To get started, talk to Kaqemeex who is located in the stone circle South of the Heroes' Guild and he will tell the player that he needs help dealing with the trolls by getting Guthix's attention by making an ointment of imbalance. Hopefully, this will help defeat the trolls. Offer to help him with his task and he will tell the player to talk to Sanfew.
Sanfew can be located in the house south of Pikkupstix and north of Alain's tree patch, across the river. Talk to him about making an ointment of imbalance for Kaqemeex and he will ask to get untainted living water, wandering wyrmwood, and some stone fish scales. He will give you a vial if you haven't got any.
Untainted living waterEdit
The untainted living water must be obtained from a cave to the south inhabited by gelatinous abominations. To get to the cave, head south from Sanfew until you reach a small peninsula on Lake Crystalmere. Enter the cave and go as far south as possible. Find the spring at the far end of the cave and take the water from there.
Note: If you haven't completed the Troll Warzone tutorial, Ariane will be waiting for you at the entrance. To progress, you must take her along until you encounter a level 26 troll shaman called Magic Stick at the spring. He may be killed or the water may just be obtained without paying attention to him.
Stone fish scalesEdit
With at least one coin (it does not matter if it's in your money pouch), follow the lake south-west until a fishing spot is seen, near a field of grain. Fish at the sparkling fishing spot and when the stone fish is caught, use a chisel on it to receive some stone scales.
If the player does not have a fishing rod, one can be bought from Nicholas Angle for coins. Nicholas is north-west of Sanfew along the river and marked by a fishing icon on the minimap.
After obtaining the stone scales, head South until the wyrmwoods are seen, north of Nora T. Hagg's house and next to Sylas. The wyrmwood will be in the ground, looking like a plant. Wait until it starts to walk around and then quickly pick it to get wandering wyrmwood. This may take a few tries, as they tend to delve themselves back in quickly.
Once the ingredients are all acquired, return to Sanfew and give them to him. He will use the ingredients to make an ointment of imbalance that needs to be delivered to Kaqemeex. Give it to Kaqemeex and he will commence the ritual.
After some unnecessary "mad babbling", which Sanfew disapproves, Kaqemeex will spill the potion over the altar and momentarily a cloud with lightning and sunshine will appear and the circle will start growing flowers and ivy on the dead stones, announcing that the ritual is complete and Guthix will intervene. Somehow. In about a year.
