Start Point:
East of Gu'Tanoth, at the Feldip Hills.
To Start:
Speak to Rantz.
  1. Talk to Rantz at the northeastern corner of the Feldip Hills and he will ask you to make him some "Stabbers", which are Ogre arrows. Agree to help him. To make these arrows you will need Wolfbone arrowtips, Ogre arrow shafts and Feathers.

    Note: He will not accept premade Ogre arrows, meaning that you will have to make them during the quest.
  2. Right click your Wolf bones to craft them into Wolfbone arrowtips (kill some of the nearby wolves if you need bones). Next, chop down one of the nearby Achey trees to obtain Achey tree logs and fletch them into Ogre arrow shafts. Finally, attach the Wolfbone arrowtips, and Feathers to the Ogre arrow shafts. It is advised to make at least 6 arrows because Rantz will take 6 off of you and you will need a few more later on.
  3. Return to Rantz and give him the 6 Ogre arrows. He will tell about the bait and his kids playing with Swamp toads. Make sure you ask Rantz all of the possible question, otherwise you won't be able to complete the next step.
  4. Enter the cave just north of Rantz and talk to either Fycie or Bugs to find out that they use Ogre bellows to inflate the toads for fun. Sadly, they will inform you that their dad has locked the bellows in a chest.

  5. Go to the northwestern corner of the cave and try to open the chest. When you have succeeded, search the chest to get hold of the Ogre bellows.

    Note: If you fail to open the chest your Strength level will temporarily be lowered by 1.

  6. Leave the cave and head southwest towards a little swamp surrounded by Wolves. Use the Ogre bellows on swamp bubbles to fill it with gas. You will get 3 loads of gas, before you need to recharge it. Look around for a Swamp toads and use the gas filled Ogre bellows with one of them to inflate it.

    Note: For steps 6-8 you cannot wear armor while catching chompy birds.
    Swamp Toad
  7. Return to Rantz and show him the Bloated toad. He will point out to you where you must put the toad to lure the Chompy bird out. Head to the Chomby hunting grounds to the south of Rantz, marked by a flashing yellow arrow, and drop the toad onto the ground.

  8. After a while a Chompy bird will appear. Talk to Rantz as soon as you see the bird. He will try to shoot it but will miss and blame it on the Ogre arrows you have made. Convince him to give you a go at shooting the bird. Eventually, he will agree and give you his Ogre bow.
    Chompy Bird
  9. Equip the bow and left over Ogre arrows. Head back to the hunting grounds and shoot the Chompy bird, marked by a flashing yellow arrow. Once killed, pluck the Chompy bird to receive Bones, Feathers, and a Raw chompy.

  10. Head back to Rantz and present him Raw chompy. He wants you to cook it for him and his kids using their desired seasonings. Rantz will tell you what his favorite seasoning is and to ask his children to find out theirs. The 3 seasonings differ from player to player. Below is a list of the possible seasonings and their whereabouts:
  11. When you have gathered the seasonings, use the Raw chompy with the Ogre spit-roast, north of Rantz. You will automatically cook the meat with the 3 seasonings.

  12. Talk to Rantz and give him the Seasoned chompy to receive your reward.
    Big Chompy Bird Hunting Completed

Chompy Bird Hunting:

After completing the quest, you can continue hunting Chompy birds to unlock a series of special hats that show how many you have killed.

You can hunt the birds within the yellow boxes shown in the image below, excluding a small area south of Rantz as this is his personal hunting ground and he does not like you using it. It is also preferable to stay close to one of the small swamp pools so that you can quickly obtain toads for bait.

Note: If you complete the Skrach Uglogwee sub-quest of Recipe or Disaster, then you can hunt Jubbly birds as an alternative to Chompy birds.

Chompy Hunting Grounds


For each Chompy bird killed, you will automatically put a mark on your ogre bow. Once a bird has been killed you may also pluck it for some Raw chompy meat and Feathers. This is advised, if you wish to make some more ogre/brutal arrows.

With a certain number of kills comes an Ogre Rank and a Chompy hat. You can check how many birds you have killed by selecting the "Check kills" option on your Ogre bow (or Comp ogre bow if you complete Zogre Flesh Eaters). Show the bow to Rantz to receive the following ranks and hats:
