1. Speak to Darren Lightfinger in the cellar of the house north of the furnace in Lumbridge. The cellar can be accessed by the trapdoor outside of the house by the north wall.

Note: The blackjack and the lockpick can be bought from Dodgy Derek inside the Thieves' Guild.

1. Darren now has one final task for you to complete. To ensure that the Thieves’ Guild becomes official, an outrageous registration fee must be paid to the Guild Registrar in Ardougne. Your task is to break into the Registrar’s vault, steal their bonds and then pay the fee with their own money. To do this you will need a blackjack, a lockpick and a disguise.

2. Speak to Robin about the disguise. He will tell you how to make a Vial of stench, which will cause the guard’s eyes to water so much that he can’t see you clearly. You will need a vial of water, an irit leaf and a bowl of chopped onion. The bowl of chopped onion is made by using a bowl with an onion.

3. Once you have made the potion return to Robin and he will cast a spell to ensure that the potion doesn’t affect you as well. Now go to East Ardougne, the Guild Registrar is located to the southeast.

4. Walk inside and pickpocket the registrar to receive the clock key. Now the following steps need to be done quickly in order to avoid being caught. Wind the clock on the wall causing the registrar to go to the other room to fix it. As soon as the registrar has entered the other room, lure the guard and then knock him out and steal his key. Pull the lever behind the registrar’s desk and then go down the now open trapdoor.

5. Pick the lock on the gate and check the chest before opening it. This will disable the trap allowing you to steal the guild bonds. Inspect the boxes to leave through the ventilation shaft.

6. Deposit the Vial of stench in the bank and then return to the Guild Registrar. Speak to the registrar to pay the registration fees and then return to Darren.
