Finishing upEdit

  • Go to the Varrock Museum and use the half of the shield on Curator Haig Halen.
  • Your partner must do the same.
  • Trade one of the certificate halves with your partner who will do the same. (You can only claim the reward for one certificate, and combining them makes them untradeable)
