He will then tell you the story of Charos. Give him the Ring of charos and you will be asked a series of 7 questions. If you have answered the question correctly he will enchant Ring of charos into a Ring of charos (a). Below are the questions and answers.

    Q: Two goblins are fighting over the colour of their armor. What do you do?
    A: Show them a range of colours so they can come to a compromise

    Q: A drunken dwarf offers you a kebab. What do you do?
    A: Take his generous gift even though you have no need for it.)

    Q: Are you enjoying your experience of Farming?
    A: It is absolutely, unquestionably the most interesting thing I've ever done!

    Q: A dwarf asks you to put on a silly golden helmet so that you can be fired from a cannon into a wall. What do you do?
    A: Put on the silly helmet and jump into the cannon.

    Q: You meet Pkmaster0036 in the wilderness who asks who is the greatest player killer in the world. How do you answer?
    A: You of course Pkmaster0036, no one could ever challenge your greatness!

    Q: Queen Ellamaria orders you to go on a foolish quest without any offer of reward. What do you say?
    A: I'll do whatever you ask - I just love the monarchy!

    Q: A Draynor bank guard asks you if you have seen any suspicious characters lately, because the bank has been robbed. What do you say?
    A: If I do I'll let you know.

    Note: The easiest way to reach Draynor Village is via the Amulet of glory teleport to Draynor Village or Lodestone home teleport. If you only get a couple of questions wrong, he will still enchant your Ring of charos.

  8. Head to the southeast part of Taverley. Once there, talk to Alain, located at the tree patch south of the gate leading to Falador.

He will tell you to take the essence to a anvil then use it on the anvil with the hammer either in your inventory or toolbelt and add it to Plant cure. Use the Hammer to break the Pure/Rune essence into Rune shards. Then, use the Rune shards with a Pestle and mortar to grind it up into Rune dust. Add the Rune dust to a regular Plant cure to create a special Plant cure.

You will need the ring to complete the quest. You will actually need a Fishing rod or Fly fishing rod, the ones in your Tool Belt will not work!

    Note: If you chose to destroy your ring, you will need to go to the third floor of Fenkenstrain's castle and pickpocket the ring from Dr. Fenkenstrain.

  15. Return to Varrock Castle garden and start planting the garden. You will need a Rake, Seed dibber, Spade, 2 buckets of Compost, the acquired seeds, and the White tree sapling. You will not have to use compost on any of the patches or water on the seeds. Plant the seeds in the relevant patches. To plant the Orchid seeds (Pink) and Orchid seeds (Yellow), use a bucket of Compost and then the seeds on each of the stone plant pots. Simply place the White tree sapling onto the White Tree patch to plant it. Once everything has been planted, talk to Queen Ellamaria again and ask her how you should get the statues there. She will give you a Trolley.

  16. Make your way to the center of Falador. Once there, use the Trolley with the statue of Saradomin and a cut scene will occur. Now, push the statue north towards the northern gate.
