Start Point:

To Start:
Speak to Sigmund on the 2nd floor of Lumbridge Castle.
  1. Talk to Sigmund and you will learn of a hole in the wall being formed in the Castle Cellar. Sigmund requests that you inspect around the town and talk to the villagers to learn more of what happened to the Cellar.

    Step 1

  2. Go outside and speak with either Hans, Cook, Bob, or Father Aereck. They are scattered around Lumbridge.

  3. One of them will tell you about what happened to the Cellar. He says a goblin-like creature with buldging eyes broke through the wall. Go back upstairs and speak with Sigmund and the Duke of Lumbridge.

  4. Speak with the Duke and Sigmund and they will request of you to investigate the hole in the Cellar. For this task bring a Pickaxe, Food, Teleportation Runes, and a Lamp/Lantern of some sort. (Candles also work, but bring many)

  5. Enter the Lumbridge Castle Cellar through the Kitchen, then move to the back of the room to see a large rock stuck in the wall. Light your Candle/Lamp/Lantern with a tinderbox and hit the rock in the wall with your pickaxe to break through.

    Step 5

  6. Now crawl through the wall and you'll end up in a cavern. Walk through and you'll shortly be led to 2 pathways. On the ground should be a Brooch. Pick it up and take it to Duke.

    Step 6

  7. Speak with the Duke and Sigmund once again and the Duke will suggest you read about the Brooch in the Varrock Library. Head to the Library in Varrock. (It's in the back room of Varrock Castle.) Show the Librarian the Brooch and he will tell you to search the bookcase in the western part of the library.

    Step 7

  8. Search one of the bookcases to find a book on goblin tribe history. Read the book and go speak to General Bentnose or General Wartface in Goblin Village. They will teach you the 2 new goblin emotes. (Goblin Salute and Goblin Bow).

    Step 8

  9. Head back to the Duke and Sigmund and tell them about what you've discovered, then head into the cave once again through the Kitchen. Be sure you have food, Teleportation runes, and your Candles/Lamp/Lantern. Head into the cave and you'll be led to a split in the road, follow the map to navigate to the end.

    Note: If the path below isn't followed, you will be sent down a trapdoor which puts you in the Lumbridge Swamp Caves!

  10. Near the exit of the mine, speak with Mistag. Walk next to him and use the Goblin Bow emote you learned earlier from General Bentnose and Wartface. Mistag will begin talking to you. He will explain to you why his Tribe is hiding from the "Surface Dwellers". When you are finished talking, speak with Mistag once again and he will lead you out of the cave. Go speak with the Duke and Sigmund. Sigmund says that silverware was stolen from the Cellar. The Duke and Sigmund request of you to ask around to find this silverware.

    Step 10

  11. Pickpocket Sigmund to find a small key. Go to the room next door and open the chest to find HAM Robes. Next, head to the HAM Hideout northwest of Lumbridge marked with the Red Dungeon Sign. Pick the lock and enter. There is a wooden crate near the entrance. Search it to find the silverware.

    Step 11

  12. Return to the Duke and Sigmund to discover that Sigmund was the one who stole the silverware. The Duke will fire Sigmund and gives you a peace treaty to give to Mistag. Bring the Treaty to Mistag to complete your quest and see a cutscene of a meeting with Duke and Ur-tag. Instead of going through the maze of tunnels you can talk to Kazgar near the Entrance to have him take you to the end.

    Congratulations Quest Complete!
