To Start: Talk to Gypsy Aris in her tent.

  1. Speak with Gypsy Aris who will offer to read out your fortune in exchange for a Coin. Give her a coin and ask her to tell you about your fortune. There is no set pattern of answers to the questions she asks, therefore choose any option that you desire and eventually she will give you a coin.

    Step 1

  2. Investigate the coin to open an interface and choose the "Flip" option to receive a Double-headed coin. Speak with Gypsy Aris once again and show her the coin. Choose any chat option, and she will subsequently ask you to toss the coin into the fountain at Varrock square. Leave the tent and use Double-headed coin on the fountain, which will cause a big giant Dimensional portal to appear in the centre of the fountain.

    Step 2

  3. Enter the portal, and you will be teleported to New Varrock. As you set your foot on the surface of darkest city, you'll be greeted by Image of Zemourgal.

    Note: Unequip and bank everything before you enter the portal - as you cannot take any items with you to New Varrock.

  1. Head over to New Varrock Museum and talk to Orlando Smith. He will tell you that Shield of Arrav has been stolen by Zemouregal, who has hidden each piece inside the banks of New Varrock. He will ask you to find both halves of the shield, and join either of the two gangs who also seek revenge from Zamouregal for his wrongdoing.

    Step 1

Black Arm Gang:

  1. If you have decided to join the Black Arm Gang, then proceed towards the southern gate of New Varrock and speak with Charlie the Tramp. He'll reveal some information about the gang, their hideout and Katrine.

    Step 2

  2. Head west down the end of the alley way to the Black Arm Gang hideout and speak with Katrine about the gang. Answer her questions as you see fit and ask her if she can help you with a bank job. She will tell you in order to join the gang you must bring her left Black arm back from Jonny the Beard.

    Step 3

  3. Get yourself a Bronze sword from the Sword shop (it's free), then pay a visit to Blue Moon Inn (Pub) right opposite to it. You'll find Jonny the Beard in there. Talk to him twice in order to begin the fight. He will hand over the Black arm once you have nearly killed him.

    Step 4

  4. Head back to the hideout and return the Black arm to Katrine who will now permit you to join the gang. She'll will give you a Lockpick and tell you the secret pass-phrase which will let you go through the northern door.

    Step 7

  2. Pay a visit to the hideout building near the southern wall of New Varrock and speak to Straven telling him that you need to pull off a bank job. Straven won't help until you've proved your loyalty to the gang by bringing him a Phoenix eggling from Lowe the owner of Archery shop, who can be found just east of the general store.

    Step 8

  3. Make your way to the Archery shop and talk to Lowe about the Phoenix eggling. He'll tell you that the Phoenix eggling is upstairs, so climb up the ladder.

    Step 9

  4. Once you're up, make your way very carefully through the room and pick up the Moving egg in the south-east corner without touching any of the other eggs. In case if you do touch any other eggs by accident, the phoenix present in the room will instantly kill you with a powerful ranged attack.

    Step 10

  5. Go back to Straven with the egg and then choose what to do to the egg in order to make it hatch. You can make it hatch by choosing either options, Clap or Kick. Once the eggling hatches, Straven will allow you to join the gang and will give you the pass-phrase to the hideout.

    Note: Your choice will determine the cosmetic appearance and nature of the eggling. By choosing "Clap" option the egg will hatch into a cute phoenix eggling, whereas by selecting "Kick" option will make the egg hatch into a mean phoenix eggling.

    Step 11

  6. Speak with Molly next door to obtain two Forged documents.

Quest Points Reward: 3

Reward: Darklight, 300 Zemomarks, 5,000 Crafting XP lamp, 5,000 Magic XP lamp, Access to ingredients for Strength potions in the New Varrock demon camp, and 2 Treasure Hunter keys.

Start Point: New Varrock Square.

To Start: Talk to Gypsy Aris in her tent.

  1. Speak with Gypsy Aris, who will tell you that Delrith has returned to destroy the city again, and that you're the one destined to defeat him. She will also tell you to find the Silverlight in order to kill Delrith, but first pay a visit to Sir Prysin who lives in a house north-west of the church - as he's the only person who can help you get to it.

    Step 1

  2. Head to the church in north-east New Varrock and attempt to climb down the trap door (located along the western wall). It will be locked so you'll need a key.

    Step 2

  3. Talk to Sir Prysin in a house north-west of the church. Ask him about the key that you need, and he will begrudgingly help you, suggesting you search his home for the key to the trap door. The key will always be in the last object you search, so examine the following objects on the ground floor: the 2 cabinets, the sink, and the drain on the outside of building - on the south wall. Go upstairs and search the drawers, wardrobe, dresser, bed, and desk. When you have found the key, make your way back to the trapdoor to your east and climb down.

    Note: The location of the key is same during replay as well.

    Step 3

  4. Once inside the crypt, head north and attempt to take out Silverlight from the altar which is covered by a barrier in the centre of the room. You won't be able to, so climb up the ladder and make your way back to Gypsy Aris to find out more information.

    Step 4

  5. Talk to Gypsy Aris. She will give you Spirit measure - a device which will help you find the spirit guardians of Silverlight. The spirit guardians can be found at the following locations:
    Name Location
    Spirit of the Body Blue Moon Inn (Pub).
    Spirit of the Faith Graveyard in north-west of New Varrock.
    Spirit of the Mind Building south of Sir Prysin's house.

    Step 5

  6. Head to the Blue Moon Inn (Pub) and attempt to speak with Dr Harlow - who has been possessed by the spirit, who will not allow you to speak with him. In order to make the spirit depart Dr Harlow's body you'll need a potion to sober him up. Before you move onto next step, head a little north and pick up a Rotten tomato from a crate near the pillories.

    Step 6

  7. Make your way back to the path of Sir Prysin's house and enter the building just south of it. Inside the building, search the Bookcase in south-east corner of the room and an Animated book (Level 32) will appear that you have to kill.

    Step 7

  8. Once you've killed the Animated book, the Spirit of the Mind will appear. Speak to him and answer all plenty of questions he asks by choosing any options that you desire - as all options will work. After that, he will unlock his seal on the Silverlight barrier.

    Step 8

  9. Now go to the graveyard, which is located north of New Varrock West Bank. Inspect the Tombstone stack right beside the statue of Zemouregal. Speak to the Spirit of Faith that appears. He'll ask you to take a step to the right, so simply walk east one step then speak to him again to have the final seal released.

    Step 9

  10. Head straight south towards the extreme end of the city from graveyard, and enter the building denoted by a Vial symbol on the minimap. Speak to Apothecary and ask if he can make a potion to sober someone up. He tells you that he can, but he would need a Cabbage, a Rotten tomato and a Dog hair.

    Step 10

  11. Go a little to your north-west, just between the two houses you'll see a kennel. Put your hand inside the kennel, continue, reach left and grab the object, reach right and rub in the jelly, reach further in and leave your hand where it is. Upon doing so you'll obtain the Dog hair.

    Step 11

  12. Now make your way towards the south-east, and pick up a Cabbage from the patch south of Blue Moon Inn (Pub).

    Step 12

  13. Return to the Apothecary with all the ingredients and he will make you Sobriety potion which you can then use on a glass of Beer (bought from the Bartender in the Blue Moon Inn for 2 Zemomarks) to produce Sobriety potion in a beer glass. Finally, use the solution on Dr Harlow, and the spirit will depart his body. Talk to the Spirit of Body, who will demand to see something die. You may either kill a random Zombie citizen in the bar, or alternatively, you may also convince the spirit to kill you instead (you won't lose anything). Speak with the spirit again, and he will lift up the barrier.

    Note: Do not drop the Vial, as you will need it later onwards.

    Step 13i

    Step 13ii

  14. Head back up to the church, north-east side of New Varrock. Climb down the trapdoor once again, and take out the Silverlight from the altar situated in centre of the crypt.

    Step 14

  15. Make your way back up by climbing the ladder to your south. Head towards the demon camp found in the south-east corner of New Varrock. Pick up a Black mushroom from the black ink mushrooms growing on the wall adjacent to Evil Dave; use it on your Silverlight to produce Silverlight (dyed). Equip your Black hood, Black robe (top), Black robe (bottom), and Silverlight (dyed). Speak to Evil Dave and then pass through the barrier.

    Note: Evil Dave won't let you through until you're wearing full black clothing. If you do not already have it, you may purchase the set for 90 Zemomarks from Thessalia's Clothes shop located in the centre of the city. You can obtain Zemomarks by either killing Zombie citizens or pickpocketing them.

    Step 15

  16. Talk to Delrith in the centre of this area, who wants you to kill him but you're being prevented from doing so. Soon the dialogue is over, at this point you have to pass through the barrier once again, and head towards north-west to the Archery shop. Use the Vial on blood fountain just north of the shop; producing a Vial of blood.

    Step 16i

    Step 16ii

  17. Return to Delrith and go through the chat options to draw a circle of blood around him. Now you'll have to fight Agrith Naar (Level 63). It is advisable to move away as far as you can when he is about to use his special attack that may cause a significant amount of damage to your character if you do not keep a fair distance from him. He will always scream "Prepare to be incinerated" when he is about to use his special attack, so you will know when to move away. Once you have dropped half of his lifepoints, he will summon three lesser demons. While they are alive he will heal himself, so take them down as quickly as possible.

    Step 17

  18. Once the demon has been defeated, return to Gypsy Aris to complete the sub-quest.

    Step 18

    Congratulations! Sub-quest Complete!

    Step 1

  2. Talk to Arrav, who pretends to be busy and say he won't be able to talk, but talk to him anyway and ask if he would be willing to bring down Zemouregal. He will say he is bound to be under Zemouregal's control forever, but will nonetheless be interested in your offer.

    Step 2

  3. Return to Reldo and confirm that Arrav is indeed under control of Zemouregal, however he would be interested in overthrowing him. Reldo will ask you look around the library to find what Zemouregal is using to control Arrav while still engaged in other activities at the same time.

    Step 3

  4. Search the bookcase in north-west corner of the room to obtain Heart magic notes. Read the book and you will learn that Zemouregal uses an obsidian prism artefact to strengthen his hold over Arrav.

Upon doing so, it will prompt you to have the Decoder strips in order to unlock the door.

    Step 8

  9. Head back out of the room and follow the pathway to your south-east, towards the stairs from where you came up. Just north of the stairs there is a combat training room filled with Armoured zombies. Search the crate in this room to obtain Decoder strips.

    Step 9

  10. Leave the combat training room and enter through the red barrier directly opposite of it. Make your way along the balcony and through the barrier on the other side.

    Step 10

  11. Exit the room and return to the ground floor of the palace. Head to the New Varrock East Bank and talk to the Trial announcer standing right outside the bank entrance. Ask him for a Tin soldier head and then answer his questions any way you desire.

    Note: If you do not already have 3 Tin ore, 1 Nature rune, and 4 Fire runes - now is the best time to get those.

    • Tin ore may be purchased from Sani's Mining shop in the western part of the city for 60 Zemomarks.
    • Nature and Fire runes may be purchased from Aubury's Rune shop in the south-eastern part of the city for 372 and 68 Zemomarks, respectively. You may obtain the Fire runes for free on your first purchase.

    Step 12

  13. Leave the room and head to the south of combat training room on this floor. Kill another Armoured zombie (Level 42) and once again collect the red mist that appears on the spot where it dies by using a Vial on it.

    Step 13a

    Step 13b

  14. Return to the treasure room in the north-west. Investigate the Scrying pool in the north-east corner of this room and then choose Option 7 entitled as 'Control the tin soldier'.

    Step 14

  15. Once in control, direct the tin soldier to pass through the red barrier and make its way to the room to the north. Search Zemouregal's lab desk to obtain the safe code - which you're advised to write down somewhere.

    Note: Safe code differs from player to player. However, it will remain the same for subsequent quest replay attempts. In case you forget the code, simply read the Scrying Pool Notes in the treasure room to obtain it once again.

    Step 15

  16. Now that you have the safe code and the Decoder strips, you may unlock the treasure room safe in the north-west corner of the room. An interface will appear which requires you to configure the decoder strips by dragging them onto letters in the right-panel, following the order of your safe code. Once you've correctly placed the corresponding strips onto the letters, a set of digits will be revealed by the strips. Enter those digits into the vault by operating the arrow keys.

    Step 17

  18. Exit the treasure room and return to Arrav downstairs on the ground floor to complete the sub-quest.

    Step 18

    Congratulations! Sub-quest Complete!

    Note: The type of Cooking urn you'll receive depends on your Cooking level. If you received a Cracked cooking urn (r) then you're only required to cook 5 Raw undead beef in order to fill it, whereas a Strong cooking urn (r) requires 8 raw undead beef and a Decorated cooking urn (r), will require 11 Raw undead beefs to be cooked to fill it.

  4. Head a little west of the cow pen and enter the building with a cooking range. Cook the Raw undead beef on the range until your urn fills up completely.

    Note: If your urn doesn't fill up there are two possible reasons. First you have a partially filled cooking urn in the real world. You will have to either destroy or complete it before you can fill up the one in New Varrock. Second there is a glitch that requires an open inventory spot in your inventory to fill the cooking urn.

    Step 4

    Note: While you're here, it is advised to deface the three paintings on the northern wall to complete Bank-Z task (Part of New Varrock Hard Tasks set) to avoid replaying all previous sub-quests to do so.

    Step 16a

    Step 16b

  17. Once you've successfully made through the light beam barriers, unlock the vault door in the south-west corner. An interface will appear which requires you to configure the decoder strips by dragging them onto letters in the right-panel, following the order of your code as imprinted on the Code key. If a letter has been repeated multiple times in your code, then place the strips one by one on that particular letter. Once you've correctly placed the corresponding strips onto the letters, a set of digits will be revealed by the strips. Enter those digits into the vault by operating the arrow keys.

    Example: Let's assume your code is GAIG.

    • Decoder strip [1] will be placed on Letter G - Digit revealed: 2.
    • Decoder strip [2] will be placed on Letter A - Digit revealed: 9.
    • Decoder strip [3] will be placed on Letter I - Digit revealed: 9.
    • Decoder strip [1] will be placed back on left-panel.
    • Decoder strip [4] will be placed on Letter G - Digit revealed: 2.

    Step 17

  18. Once the vault door is unlocked, make your way inside and take Arrav's heart from the pedestal; it'll be automatically placed inside the Prepared canopic jar to produce Heart in a canopic jar.

    Step 18

  19. Leave the room and return to Arrav on the ground floor to show him the heart. The curse that binds him to Zemouregal's will be broken, and he will ask you to steal the Shield of Arrav from New Varrock Museum so that he can fight Zemouregal.

    Step 19

  20. Head over to the New Varrock Museum and distract Orlando by pressing the big red button next to Loarnab's remains to the south. Select any of the options on the interface that pops up, causing the statue to vibrate and distract Orlando.

    Step 20

  21. Right-click and pickpocket Curator Haig Halen roaming nearby to obtain a Display cabinet key. Use the key on the display which has the shield inside in order to steal it.

    Note: You will fail to obtain the key and steal the shield if Orlando is not properly distracted. In the that case, you will need to press the big red button again.

    Step 21

  22. Return to Arrav and give him the shield and Darklight. When you're ready, enter the throne room behind Arrav for the final battle.

    Notes:

    • There will be two safe fights - you will not lose anything in case you die.
    • You can't take any food with you nor use your backpack inside the throne room, as you will be playing as Arrav from now on.
    • As you will be wielding Darklight and the Shield of Arrav, therefore you can only make use of one-handed melee and defensive abilities.

    Step 22

  23. Once you're inside the throne room, speak with Sharathteerk (Level 98) to begin the first fight. Although the fight is quite easy and simple, but it's recommended to use abilities such as Anticipation, Slice, Fury, Slaughter, Punish, Sever, Revenge, Dismember, and Assault. Make sure to heal yourself using the abilities such as Rejuvenate, Resonance, Ice Asylum, or Sacrifice once in a while. When he has been defeated, either kill or spare him, then take the Healing orb to restore your lifepoints.

    Step 23

  24. Now it's time to confront Zemouregal (Level 98)! Make your way to the north-east corner and climb up the staircase. Run up to the central section of the roof to begin the fight. Throughout the fight Zemouregal will summon Protection portals that will make you unable to deal him any damage. Therefore, your first priority will always be to destroy the protection portals and then attacking Zemouregal. He will also occasionally summon Zombies and New Varrock guards to assist him during the fight - it is advised to ignore them as they won't do a lot damage to you. However, you do need to be careful when he begins to add exploding Zombie cows; as they are capable of dealing high damage. It is highly recommended to avoid attacking or getting closer to the cows, but rather try luring them to destroy things for you; as they can also cause damage to protection portals, zombies, guards, and even Zemouregal!

    You will also find Health orbs on the ground when a zombie is killed or a protection portal is destroyed. You must pick them up to restore 10% of your lifepoints. When Zemouregal has one-third of his lifepoints left, he will begin to summon a large quantity of protection portals and exploding zombie cows. You must lure the cows into the portals to destroy all of them so that Zemouregal can be killed.

    Step 24a

    Step 24b

  25. Once Zemouregal has been defeated, Arrav will exit the palace and meet you at the New Varrock square. He will share the glad tidings of Zemouregal's death and freedom of Varrock. He will also explain that he and the other zombies of New Varrock are now finally at peace and will be able to die. He will then collapse and die in front of you. You will be returned to Gielinor and the portal will be closed behind you.

    Step 25
