1. Speak to Radimus Erkle in the Legends’ Guild which is located northeast of Ardougne. He tells you that he has a quest for you and explains that the druids intend to set up an altar to Guthix on Karamja. Accept the mission and Radimus tells you that you need to talk to a druidess called Ivy Sophista in Taverley, who can be found in one of the buildings opposite the witch’s house. He then gives you a secret pass phrase to tell Ivy – ‘Our friend in common places great faith in totems.’

2. Head over to Taverley and enter the long building just south of the witch’s house. Talk to Ivy Sophista and pick the option ‘Our friend in common places great faith in totems.’ She then tells you to meet Thaerisk upstairs.

3. Climb the ladder at the east end of the house and speak to Thaerisk. He tells you that the trip to Karamja was just a cover story and he’ll start to give you the background story. However you’re interrupted by two level 38 assassins. Kill them and then resume talking to Thaerisk.

4. Ask him ‘What efforts are you making against Lucien?’ then ‘What are our options?’ followed by ‘What do you need me to do?’ He needs you to go find out what Movario is up to. Thaerisk tells you to go see Reldo in the Varrock Library to find out about what Movario may be doing.

The hunt for Movario

Needed Items: Knife, hatchet or any type of log

5. Speak to Reldo and ask him about each of the options in turn. After asking where he lives, Reldo suggests you speak to a jungle hunting expert.

6. Go to the Feldip Hills south of Yanille and talk to the hunting expert about a creature to help track down a person. She will talk to you about the wild broav and explain how to catch it. She then gives you a mort myre fungus to use as bait. You’ll need a knife and an hatchet or any type of log.

7. Head west to the designated pitfall trap. Catching the wild broav is very similar to pitfall trapping. the only difference being you’re using bait and don’t need to jump over the trap. Set the trap and then place the fungus on it. The wild broav will approach and then fall into the trap. Bring the unconscious broav back to the hunting expert.

8. She trains the broav for you but you’ll need to find something of Movario’s to let the broav get his scent. Go to the Khazard area.

9. Talk to one of the Khazard guards and they will tell you that he Movario is often seen taking his laundy somewhere northwest of the Fight Arena. Go there and ask the Khazard launderer if he knows someone called Movario. He says he isn’t allowed to divulge client details so pay him 5000 gp or charm him with a ring of charos(a). You’ll receive some of Movario’s dirty laundry.

10. Drop your Broav and use the dirty laundry with it. It will lead you to the Khazard ruins at the battlefield. If your broav starts walking in circles use the laundry with it again or if it gets stuck behind obstacles just pick it up and walk around the obstacle. It will lead you to the northern area of the khazard battlefield in the northeastermost house. The door is locked so climb the crumbled wall to get in.

11. Once inside the building use the laundry on the broav again and it will walk over to the broken table and squeal. Search the table to find the trapdoor beneath it.

Movario's Base

Needed Items: 1 air, mind, water, earth and fire rune, food

12. Bringing 1 air, mind, water, earth and fire rune, enter the trapdoor and then head west. At the intersect run north and follow the path as it curves until you reach the stairs. Go down them and you’ll find yourself in a room that prevents you from teleporting.

13. Use the mind rune on the door. If it’s the correct rune then you receive a message saying you hear a click. If it’s the wrong rune you get blasted for 250 life points. Take note of the colour as that will indicate which rune is the correct one. White is air, blue is water, green is earth and red is fire. Do not open the door. Search the door now and disarm the traps. Open the door and enter the next room.

14. The aim here is to divert all the electricity to the gate to overload it. Go over to the gate and find the lit wire. It’ll be slightly illuminated and vibrating. It can be examined if you’re unsure. Follow the wire and search the bookcase it leads to. This will then light up another wire. Keep doing this until all the wires are lit up and then open the gate and search the stairs before going up.

15. Search the desk to find Movario’s notes and the pick up the waste basket and search it to find a ruby key. Use the ruby key with the northernmost bookcase on the western wall. A staircase will appear, climb it.

16. Search the bed to reveal a bed chest. Search the chest and disarm the trap and then use the ruby key on it. Searching the chest will yield two key halves and more of Movario’s notes. Head all the way downstairs to the room with all the wires.

17. Search the painting on the eastern wall and flip the catch. Search the drawers and look at the thermometer. Check your own weight and take away the number on the thermometer. Then take that weight from the pile and go upstairs. Use the weights on the statue and open the door. Run east until you get to the ladder and then climb it.

18. Go back to Thaerisk in Taverley. Hand him the notes and then ask him what you should do now. He tells you to find out where Lucien is from the Guardians of Armadyl. Head over to the shack by McGrubor’s Woods.

Either get your own or buy the seed from Thaerisk for just less than 29,000 gp. Then ask him to teleport you to Port Sarim.

24. Go to the magic shop and talk to Betty about While Guthix Sleeps. She explains you have to use an enriched snapdragon herb on a normal truth serum. To do this give the snapdragon seed to Betty and she’ll place it on the counter. Then buy pink dye and use it on a lantern lens. Finally stand in the doorway and use the lens on the counter. Go back to Thaerisk.

25. Ask Thaerisk what to do next and he tells you that you need to plant the seed in a specially created patch on the roof of the castle. Climb to the top of the western tower. Now return to Idria.
