To Start:
Speak to Elena.


  1. Talk to Elena and she will tell you that her Distillator has been stolen by the Mourners and the tunnel is blocked. Accept her quest and she will tell you to find a man called Jerico.

    Step 1

  2. Jerico is located in the house south of the north bank in East Ardougne. After you have found him, talk to him and he will ask you to find Omart. Before you leave, pick up one Pigeon cage and search his cupboards to find some Bird feed.

    Step 2

  3. Omart is located west of the Carnillean Mansion. After you have found him, talk to him and he will say every thing is ready but you can't risk it with the watch tower so close. He will say that you should go back and talk to Jerico again. You can but if you don't want to waste time, DON'T.

    Step 3

  4. Go to the watchtower which is located north of Omart (next to the closed city gates). To use the bird feed, you will need to stand in the corner where the two spiked fences meet. Once there, use the birdseed on the watchtower fence and open the pigeon cage. The mourners will now focus on the pigeons instead of you. Talk to Omart and Kilron will throw a rope ladder over the wall. Climb the ladder to get into West Ardougne.

    Step 4

  5. Go to the northeast building in West Ardougne. Take a Rotten apple which is just a little northwest of the house. Squeeze through the gap in the fence and use the apple on the Cauldron. Try to open the door and a Mourner will say that some Mourners are ill and they need a doctor.

    Step 5

  6. Head southwest and find Nurse Sarah's house - directly southwest of the Monastery. Go in, open and search the box to find a Doctors' gown. Put it on and go back to the Mourner house.

    Step 6

  7. Open the door in front of the Mourner house. The Mourners will let you in. Climb up the staircase. Open the door and tell the Mourner whatever you like. He will attack you. Kill him, if he doesn't give you a Key (it will appear in your pack) then do the same to the other Mourner. Use it on the gate and the gate should open. Search all the crates until you find the Distillator. Get out of the house.

    Step 7

  8. Go to the southeast corner of the plague city area. Talk to Kilron and tell him that you want to go back.

    Step 8

  9. Go to Elena's house and talk to her. She will give you some filled vials. She will also ask you to get some touch paper from the Chemist and use the Chemist's delivery men to smuggle the vials to Varrock. Accept the items she gives you. Do not teleport or the Plague sample will break, although you can put it in your bank and then teleport.

  10. Head to the Chemist with the sample and vials. After you reach there, talk to the Chemist; just say you are Elena's friend. DO NOT SAY ANYTHING ABOUT PLAGUE. Say that you need the Touch paper for Guidor. He will give you the paper. If you happen to mention the plague he will take away your sample and you will have to go back to Elena to get a new one.

    Note: Chemist is located just west of Rimmington.

    Step 10

  11. Go outside chemist's house and give the vials to the 3 delivery men crowding around a fire.
    Person Vial
    Hops Sulphuric broline
    Chancy Liquid honey
    Da Vinci Ethanea
    Once you have given the vials, they will ask you to meet them at the Dancing Donkey Inn in Varrock. Make sure you have the Plague sample and Touch paper with you.

    Note: Do not teleport with the Plague samples, it will disintegrate if you do! Place the sample in your bank, then teleport.

    Step 11

  12. The Dancing Donkey Inn is located in the southeast corner of Varrock. Before you reach there, a guard should search you. That's why you needed the delivery men to smuggle the other vials. Talk to them in the Dancing Donkey Inn to get back the vials.

    Step 12

  13. Guidor's house is just southeast of this inn. Talk to Guidor's wife, she will say that she needs a priest. Put on the Priest gowns (these can be purchased cheaply at the clothing shop next door) and talk to her again. She will allow you to go in.

    Step 13

  14. Now it is time to realize the truth. Talk to Guidor and tell him you are here because of Elena and give all the vials to him. He will tell you that there is no plague.

    Step 14

  15. Go back to Elena's house and tell her there is no plague, she will tell you to see the King of Ardougne.

  16. The King is upstairs in the palace in Ardougne, which is located west across the bridge from the General Store. Talk to King Lathas and he will tell you about his brother, King Tyras, and reward you.

    Step 16

    Congratulations! Quest Complete!
