Ilfeen Ithell is an elf who roams the northern area of the forest of Isafdar. She can be found in either the clearing South East of the Elf Camp or the clearing east of the catapult clearing. Ilfeen teleports between the two locations about every 4 minutes, saying "I have things to do" just before she leaves. Following a certain point in the Prisoner of Glouphrie quest, and after the quest has been completed, Ilfeen is found in the centre of Lletya instead.
Ilfeen has a deep understanding of crystals. If you have a Crystal bow or Crystal ward that has reverted to a Crystal seed, Ilfeen can enchant it back to a bow or shield for a price. The price drops by 180,000/150,000 each time you have a seed enchanted into a bow/shield (respectively), down to a minimum price:
|Enchantment||Cost for crystal bow||Cost for crystal shield|
|Fifth and thereafter||200,000||150,000|
Once llfeen enchants a Crystal seed at least once into a shield or bow she is then able to re-enchant partially degraded crystal equipment, at a proportion of the cost. For example, a Crystal bow in '9/10' condition can be recharged back to full condition for 18,000 coins if the minimum recharge cost has already been reached. Likewise, a Crystal shield in '2/10' condition can be recharged for 600,000 coins if it is the first time Ilfeen is re-enchanting. A recharge in this manner will still count towards reducing the cost for future re-enchantments.
New bows (900,000 each) and shields (750,000 each) may also be purchased from Islwyn without having a seed.
Ilfeen also says she is learning how to make Crystal halberds but hasn't quite got the melody right yet. If The Path of Glouphrie is completed, you can talk to her and learn more about Oaknock and the Crystal saw.
- Ilfeen formerly appeared to be wearing a cape of legends, however in Postbag from the Hedge 9 a player asked: 4. The last time I saw you, you had a legends cape on. Are you a member of the legend's guild? If so, have you been in the area of RuneScape inhabited by humans, because most elves never speak about leaving the elven lands. To this Ilfeen responded: 4. I know nothing of your human guilds. It is merely coincidence.
