Fairy Tale Part I - Growing Pains, A
Recipe for Disaster
In Aid of the Myreque
Talk to Drezel beneath Temple of Paterdomus on the River Salve between Varrock and Canifis and he will ask you to take 3 Meat and Apple pies to his friend, Filliman Tarlock who lives in Mort Myre. Agree to help and he'll warn you to watch out for Ghasts in the swamp as they'll rot the pies, however, as you'll see shortly, it doesn't matter if they do.
Note: The fastest way to reach Drezel is via the Canifis lodestone home teleport and climbing down the trapdoor found across the bridge at the base of the temple northwest of the town.
Make sure you've got your Ghostspeak amulet equipped and pass through the Holy barrier south of Drezel to enter Morytania. Cross the bridge and head southeast to find the gate to Mort Myre. Go through the gate and follow the green path through the swamp marked out on the image below to find yourself at a broken bridge which you'll need to jump to reach a small island with a Grotto tree in the centre. Note that you can fail the jump and will take a small amount of damage if you do so.
Take the Washing bowl from the table and then the Mirror underneath it (you can drop the Washing bowl as it has no use) and try to enter the Grotto tree. Filliman Tarlock will appear, however, it turns out that he has died and is now a ghost. Talk to him and he'll refuse to believe you when you tell him he's dead, so use the Mirror on him and he'll accept that he's a ghost and ask you to find his journal.
Search the Grotto tree to obtain the Journal and give it to Filliman. He'll now tell you that he wishes to become a Nature Spirit, but to do so he'll need you to get 3 thing for him: Something from nature, Something with faith and Something of the spirit-to-become freely given. He'll then give you a Druidic spell and tell you to ask Drezel to bless you.
Return to Drezel and ask him to bless you and he'll once done he'll say that you have "Something of the faith about you". He'll then offer to teleport you back to the grotto, so accept and jump back over the bridge to work on finding something from nature.
Head northwest into the swamp until you come across a rotting log on the ground. Once you've found one, stand next to it and click on the Druidic spell to cast it and you'll see some fungi instantly grow on the log while leaving you with a A used spell. Pick the fungi to obtain Mort myre fungus and head back to the grotto.
Now go back to the grotto and use the Mort myre fungus on the brown stone, A used spell on the grey stone and stand yourself on the orange stone. Talk to Filliman and let him know that you've solved the puzzle and he'll ask you to come inside the grotto. Do so and talk to him again and you'll see him become a Nature Spirit.
Talk to him again and he'll ask for a Silver sickle. Give him the one you should have with you and he'll now bless it and hand you back a Silver sickle(b). Talk to him yet again and he'll give you a Druid pouch explain how to use it to kill Ghasts and ask you to kill 3 of them out in the swamp.
Leave the grotto and look for bushes, rotting logs, or branches and once stood next to them, right-click your Silver sickle(b) and cast click Bloom to cast the spell (drains a small number of Prayer points) and grow Mort myre fungi, Mort myre pears, or Mort myre stems. Pick three of these and add them to Druid pouch and then wait for a Ghast to attack you. When it does, the Druid pouch will make it fully visible and
Kill the required 3 Ghasts, then return to Filliman and he'll transform the grotto into an Altar of Nature which can be used to boost Prayer points by 20 over your maximum.
