Achietties' errandEdit

Achietties chathead

To begin, head to the Heroes' Guild in Taverley (it is quicker to use the Lodestone in Burthorpe) and speak to Achietties standing outside the guild. She tells you that the requirement of joining the guild is bringing her the following three items: an Entranan firebird feather, a cooked lava eel and a master thief's armband.

The items can be retrieved and brought to Achietties in any order.

The Entranan firebirdEdit

Make sure all your armour and weapons are banked, and head to Entrana by your preferred method of transportation. Once there, talk to the High Priest in the church about the firebird. According to legends, a firebird's mere touch can burn human flesh, but an ancient hero named Camorra made use of a pair of magical gloves, stolen from the Queen of the Ice, to catch the firebird and keep it as a pet. The priest does not know where to find the queen, as he says it is just a myth he was told as a child. He suggests trying White Wolf Mountain.

If you already possess a pair of ice gloves, you will not get the quest dialogue with the High Priest. In that case, you can simply bring the ice gloves to Entrana, fight the firebird near the law altar, and pick up the Entranan firebird feather while wearing the gloves.

Ice and fireEdit

Ice Queen's Lair map

The Ice Queen's Lair is hidden underneath the White Wolf Mountain, located between Catherby and Taverley.

From Taverley walk up the eastern side of the mountain and enter the cave just west of Grimgnash which places you on the summit near 3 trapdoors. Just east of the trapdoors is a mine-able rock slide blocking the way to 3 ladders - right click it and mine it; you will automatically walk through.

  1. Go down the southern-most ladder and follow the tunnel southwest.
  2. Climb up the ladder towards the end and you will be on the summit of the mountain with several level 51 Ice Giants and 3 ladders.
  3. Go down the east ladder and follow the tunnel north past the ice spiders and ice giants, following the tunnel as it loops around.
  4. Climb up the ladder at the end and you will be just east of the first 3 ladders you started at.
  5. Climb down the north ladder and follow the path until the dungeon opens into the Ice Queen's throne room, which contains several level 54 ice warriors and the level 77 Ice Queen.

The queen is relatively stronger than her combat level suggests, and attacking her will make the ice warriors aggressive towards you.

The ice warriors are aggressive to low-level players, and hit fairly accurately.

If your Prayer level is 43 or higher, using Protect from Melee will make the fight much easier. By standing near the northern wall, you can avoid the ice warriors and still be able to attack the queen. Kill her and pick up the ice gloves. You may teleport out or use the ladder near the throne as a one-way escape exit.

With the ice gloves equipped, go back to Entrana and head to the northern part of the island. The Entranan firebird can be found near the law altar and it has only 50 life points. Simply kill the firebird and it will drop a Entranan firebird feather. Make sure you are wearing the ice gloves when you pick it up.

Lava eelEdit

Items needed: Harralander potion (unf) (or a vial of water and clean harralander), fishing rod and some fishing bait. You will also require a dusty key if you choose to catch an eel in the Taverley dungeon

Go to Port Sarim and talk to Gerrant in his fishing shop. Ask him about catching lava eels, and he tells you that you just need a fishing rod that has a lava-proof line. This can be done by applying some blamish oil on an ordinary rod. He gives you a vial of blamish snail slime, and tells you to mix it with a vial of water and a harralander (or a harralander potion (unf)) to obtain some blamish oil, which requires 25 Herblore.

Use the oil on the fishing rod to turn it into a oily fishing rod, now equipped to catch lava eels. If you do not have any fishing bait yet, you can buy it from Gerrant or pick them up from the spawn points near the Taverley dungeon entrance, if you choose to go there.

Lava eel fishing spots can be found in two locations: the Taverley dungeon and the Lava Maze in the Wilderness. The Taverley dungeon is reasonably safer than going to the Lava Maze, although it is more time consuming, unless you possess level 70 Agility.

  • Taverley Dungeon:

If you already have 70 agility or a dusty key, you can skip directly to the room with the blue dragons.

Heroes quest - Fishing eels

Fishing for the Lava Eel in the Taverley dungeon

The Taverley dungeon entrance can be found just south of Taverley. Walk through the dungeon, past the skeletons, ghosts, black knights, magic axes and poison scorpions. If you have a dusty key, cross the bridge and head north until you see the lesser demons.

To obtain the dusty key, go past the scorpions and continue south-west after the hill giants to enter the black knights' hideout. Head south-east to the jail, kill the jailer and pick up his jail key. Open the jail cell holding Velrak the Explorer and talk to him to get a dusty key. To make getting dusty keys easier in the future, speak to him again to make him relocate to the dungeon entrance.

With the key, open the door near the lesser demons and head across the room with the blue dragons, until you get to three fishing spots. Use your oily fishing rod and some bait to catch some raw lava eels, which requires 53 Fishing.

  • Lava Maze:

Make sure you have the oily fishing rod and some bait and head to the Lava Maze in the Wilderness. The lava fishing spot can be found in the middle of the maze, between the first and second webs and is marked on the map with a fishing spot icon (Fishing spot map icon). Fish out some raw lava eels.

This is easier than going through the Taverley dungeon (unless you possess 70 agility), although significantly more risky, as you may be killed.

Finally, once you have your eel, regardless of how you obtained it, cook it on a range or fire to get a cooked lava eel, which requires 53 Cooking.

Master thief's armbandEdit

Obtaining the master thief's armband requires either the assistance of another player, or lockpicks and a decent thieving level.

The help of a friend who is in the opposing gang of Varrock can make this segment of the quest significantly easier - to find out what gang you are in, simply check the quest log for the Shield of Arrav quest. Players can freely change gangs before and after the quest, and other players can help you even if they have already finished Heroes' Quest.

If you choose to do the quest with the help of a partner, use this RuneScape forums thread to find a partner from the opposite gang. Finding a partner might also be easier on World 100 (Group Questing), or through the many questing clans who offer help to those in need of a partner.

Buying the required quest item from other players without completing the quest sections will not allow you to progress in the quest.

  • Black Arm Gang:
Items needed: A black full helmet, black platebody and black platelegs (If you have already completed this quest and are helping a friend, then you do not need the black armour). If you are not doing the quest with a partner, you will also need lockpicks.

Head to the Black Arm Gang's hideout in south-western Varrock. Speak to Katrine about becoming a master thief, and she'll tell you about the highly secure artefacts in Brimhaven, one of which is held by the pirate leader, ScarFace Pete. If you want the armband, you must steal Pete's candlesticks and bring it back to her. You can use the help of your fellow gang members in Brimhaven, by using the password, "Four leaved clover".

Go to Brimhaven and try to enter the gang office, located just east of the bar, but Grubor will stop you. Simply say the password to be let in. Once inside, talk to Trobert to become acquainted with the plan. Apparently, one of the keys to Pete's treasure room is with Grip, Pete's head guard. Grip is hiring a new deputy named Hartigan, a rogue black knight looking to join the pirates. The gang has managed to ambush the knight and steal his ID papers, and are waiting for someone to fill the position.

Killing Grip

A player attacks Grip from behind the wall.

Agree to the plan and take the papers from Trobert. Equip the black armour set and walk to Pete's mansion, the large building in the north-west part of the town. Show Garv the papers and he will let you inside.

If you're doing the quest with a partner, go talk to Grip inside and ask him about your duties and whether there's anything to be done. He asks you to find the purpose of one of the mansion's keys; you must give the miscellaneous key to your Phoenix Gang partner.

Go into the north-east room and wait for your partner to assume their place in the neighbouring east-side room. Once they are, search the wall cabinet; Grip will then come into the room, yelling at you to stop rummaging through his stuff. Shut the door as soon as he enters the room, so that he stays in long enough for your partner to kill him. After he is dead, pick up Grip's key.

Go to the treasure room in the north-west part of the mansion. If you obtained Grip's key, simply use it to open the door. If not, use a lockpick on the door instead - you may fail and break the lockpick, so completing this may take some time. Search the chests and take the two candlesticks. Leave the mansion and give the extra candlestick to your partner, if you had one. Go back to Varrock and talk to Katrine to become a master thief and receive the master thief's armband.

  • Phoenix Gang:
Items needed: Ranged or magic combat gear (hunter's crossbow does not work, nor do short-range weapons such as throwing knives). If you are doing the quest solo, you will instead require coins and lockpicks.

Head to the Phoenix Gang Hideout in southern Varrock and talk to Straven. He tells you to steal the much-coveted candlesticks, belonging to the pirate leader ScarFace Pete, and stored in his mansion in Brimhaven. He also tells you to take help of the Phoenix Gang associates in Brimhaven - Charlie the Cook and Alfonse the Waiter - by using the password, "Gherkin".

Killing Grip

A player attacks Grip from behind the wall.

Travel to Brimhaven (if you have a Black Arm Gang partner, take the miscellaneous key). Go to the Shrimp and Parrot food shop, located north of the pub, and talk to Alfonse about 'gherkins'. He tells you to go around in the back and speak to Charlie. Charlie will tell you that they haven't made great progress in retrieving the candlesticks, however, they have figured out a way to enter the mansion undetected.

If you have a partner: go through the secret wall panel between the door and the stove, and into the yard. Run past the guard dogs and enter the mansion through the side door with some barrels next to it. Once inside, use the miscellaneous key on the north door to get into a room with a cross-shaped window. Your partner should be standing there beside Grip; wield your ranged or magic weapon and shoot/cast at Grip through the hole in the west wall. Once dead, he will drop his keys for your partner to pick up, who will obtain two candlesticks and trade you one of them.

If you don't have a partner: Once you have spoken to Charlie, you will be able to bribing Garv the guard with 1000 coins to enter the mansion. Head to the treasure room in the north-west corner. Once there, use lockpicks on the door to attempt to break in - this may take multiple tries, and lockpicks may break in the process. Once inside, search the chests for the candlestick. You will receive two candlesticks, one of which can be given away or discarded as it was for your partner.

Go back to Varrock and talk to Straven to get the master thief's armband.
