High level Agility and Herblore is a distinct advantage
Must be able to defeat level 57 Jogres.
Go just north of Tai Bwo Wannai and into the hut southwest of the hut with the anvil. Climb up the ladder to the second floor and talk to Timfraku there. He will be rather rude to you and tell you to leave. Speak with him again and tell him that Trufitus sent you, and that he has communed with the gods. Timfraku will be amazed and thank you for what you did so far. Ask what he means and he will tell you to notify his three sons about it. Accept the assignment to start the quest and climb down the ladder.
Note: The easiest way to reach Tai Bwo Wannai is via the Fairy Ring code (C K R) or via the Amulet of glory(4) to Karamja and then walking southwest. Do not try to access the island of Karamja by boat or the Customs officers will confiscate the Karamjan rum (Sliced banana).
Leave the village and head east through the jungle until you reach a log bridge over a small river. Cross the bridge and head north towards the beach. On the beach, tell Tiadeche to return to home. He will only return when he has caught a Raw karambwan. Offer to help him catch one.
Note: The easiest way to reach Tiadeche is via the Fairy Ring code (D K P).
Make your way to the coastline south of Brimhaven. Once there, talk to Lubufu among some crates and fishing-lines. Talk to him until you can ask him about his age. Ask him what he uses to catch Raw karambwan and offer to collect some bait for him. He will ask you to catch 20 Raw karambwanji.
Head to the lake south of Tai Bwo Wannai and use your Small fishing net to catch the 20 Raw karambwanji.
Note: It is advised that you catch 3 extra Raw karambwanji as you will need them later on in the quest. If you do not have 20 or more open inventory spots, then simply hand over the ones you have caught to Lubufu and return to get the remaining Raw karambwanji.
Return to Lubufu and give him the 20 Raw karambwanji. Speak with him again and agree to be his apprentice. He will now give you a Karambwan vessel (Empty), used to catch Raw karambwan, and tell you how to bait it. Use one of the remaining Raw karambwanji on it to receive a Karambwan vessel (Full).
Note: It is advised that you drop the Karambwan vessel (Full) and tell Lubufu that your vessel was stolen by a Karambwan. You will need a second vessel later on in the quest. Use one of the remaining Raw karambwanji on it to receive a Karambwan vessel (Full).
Take the Karambwan vessel (Full) to Tiadeche. He will then catch a Raw karambwan and give it you. He will then ask you to make a Karambwan vessel (Full) and to give it to his brother Tinsay. His brother will use it to make a Crafting manual, which you must return to him.
Note: If you fail to cross the log bridge, you will lose up to 90 Life points.
Head west across the log bridge and past Shilo Village till you spot Cairn Isle. Climb the rocks and walk across the bridge. Once you have made it safely to the other side, use the remaining Karambwan vessel (Full) with Tinsay and ask him to make the Crafting manual. He will only help you when you have helped him and asks for a bottle of Karamjan rum (Sliced banana), which he needs to repair a tribal statue. Give the bottle of Karamjan rum (Sliced banana) to him. He will then ask for a Seaweed sandwich, which he says he need to repair a tribal statue.
Note: The easiest way to reach Cairn Isle, south of Tai Bwo Wannai, is via the Fairy Ring code (C K R). If you fail to climb the rocks, you will lose up to 100 Life points. Failure to cross the bridge will cause you to lose up to 200 Life points.
Leave Cairn Isle and head into the jungle to the north. Running around, you will find some Monkeys (level 8). Kill a monkey using range or magic and pick up the Monkey corpse it drops.
Now, walk east towards the Nature Altar mine. There, you will find Tamayu. Use the Monkey corpse with him and ask him to skin it. He will only help you when you have helped him. Talk to him again and ask to return to home. He will only return when he has slain the Shaikahan. Ask him when he will succeed in killing it and he will offer you to join him on his next trip. Agree to join him and a cut scene will occur during which he fails to kill the Shaikahan. He will complain about not having the required
Agility level or a stronger spear.
Head west to the everlasting fires along the southern border of Tai Bwo Wannai. Use the Raw karambwan that Tiadeche gave you with one of the fires to cook it. Once cooked, use the Poison karambwan with a Pestle and mortar to produce Karambwan paste (Poison). Apply the paste to your spear to create a spear(kp).
Note: If you happen to burn the Raw karambwan, then you will have to get another one yourself because Tiadeche will not give you another one. If you brought the extra Raw karambwans with you, then simply try again. If you forgot to bring extra Raw karambwans and have 65 Fishing, then head to the fishing spot near Lubufu or Tiadeche and use the remaining Karambwan vessel (Full) to catch another one. If you forgot to bring the extra Raw karambwans and do not have 65 Fishing, then you will have to buy one from another player.
Return to Tamayu and give him both the items, spear(kp) and the Agility potion(s). He will end the conversation saying that he must prepare for his next trip. Talk to him again and ask him if once more you can join him on his next trip. A cut scene will occur during which he successfully defeats the Shaikahan. When the cut scene has ended, give him the Monkey corpse. He will agree to skin it for you and when finished will you a piece of Monkey skin and Monkey bones. He will thank you and will agree to go home when you have helped his other brother.
Use the Monkey skin with the Seaweed to make the Seaweed sandwich and take it to Tinsay. Still not satisfied, he will ask for one last item, some burnt jogre bones marinated in karambwaji.
To get your hands on Burnt jogre bones, light some Jogre bones using a Tinderbox. When the fire has extinguished, pick up the Burnt jogre bones. Grind up the last Raw karambwanji with a Pestle and mortar. Use the Karambwanji paste (Raw) with the Burnt jogre bones to produce Pasty jogre bones (Burnt) (Raw). Leave Cairn Isle and head north to the everlasting fires. Cook the Pasty jogre bones on one of the fires to receive Marinated j' bones (Burnt).
Note: If you forgot to bring Jogre bones, then head to the jungle south of where you found Tiadeche and kill a Jogre (level 57).
For the last time, return to Tinsay on Cairn Isle and give him the Marinated j' bones (Burnt). He will thank you and will agree to go home when you have helped his other brother. At this point, you must give him the remaining Karambwan vessel (Full). He will take a look at it and give you the Crafting manual.
Bring Crafting manual to Tiadeche. Finally, he will finally agree to come back to the village.
Note: The easiest way to reach Tiadeche is via the Fairy Ring code (D K P).
Head back to Tai Bwo Wannai and talk to Timfraku to complete the quest. Visit the 3 sons in their huts, in the fenced in area to the south of the main village, to receive the additional rewards.
Talk to Tamayu to claim the 2.5K Attack and Strength XP. You will also receive a Rune spear(kp) and the ability to use his Spear stall. Tiadeche will teach you how to properly cook Raw karambwan. He will also give 5K Fishing XP and access to his Karambwan stall. Talk to Tinsay you to collect the 5K Cooking XP and to ability to properly make Marinated bones.
Note: The easiest way to reach Tai Bwo Wannai is via the Fairy Ring code (C K R).
Congratulations! Quest Complete!
Upon completing the quest, you unlock the ability to pray at the tribal statue in the center of Tai Bwo Wannai. The ability to use this altar makes the Tai Bwo Wannai Clean Up mini-game much easier and faster because you won't need to bring any food and can just use the protect from melee prayer.
