Start Point:
Watchtower, North of the Western city gate of Yanille.
To Start:
  1. Make your way to the small tower to the North of Yanille's Western city gate. Look around its walls for a trellis. Climb up the trellis and up another set of stairs to the top floor of the watchtower.

    Note: If you try to use the stairs instead of the trellis to reach the second floor, then the Tower guards will deny you the access and attack you. The easiest way to reach Yanille is via the lodestone network (if unlocked). If not, then use the ring of duelling teleport to Castle Wars and walk East to the city.


  2. Once you have reached the top floor of the watchtower, talk to to the Watchtower Wizard, who will start complaining. Choose the option "What's the matter?" and he'll tell you that the watchtower is not working and therefore the people of Yanille are not protected against the Ogres. Ask him what he means and the wizard will explain that the tower uses a magical spell to ward off the Ogres. He will then tell you that they no longer have the knowledge about the spell, but that the essence of the spell been kept in 4 crystals that power the shield. Ask way why the spell is not working and he will inform you that the crystals have been stolen. Offer your help and he will tell you to search for clues in the surrounding area.

  3. Climb down the ladders to the first floor and pick up the Lit candle from the table then search the bushes around the watchtower for Fingernails, a Tattered eye patch, a Damaged dagger, an Unusual armour, and an Old robe. Once you have found them all, head back to the Watchtower Wizard, using the ladders, and show him the items. He will take the Fingernails and tell you that the creature that took the crystals is a Skavid, a servant of the Ogres who lives in the caves. Ask what you can do about it and he will you that it would be useless to search the caves without a map. He will suggest that you talk to the surrounding tribes and sends you on a mission to recover the 4 crystals.

    Note: You may drop the remaining items as they have no further use.

  4. Leave Yanille through the Western city gate and head North West until you come to a small ogre settlement. Talk to Og and tell him that you seek entrance to the Ogre city. He will reply that you have no business there. Ask him if he will help you if you help him. He will give you Toban's key and ask you to retrieve his Gold that was stolen by Toban.


  5. Just South East of Og, you will see a small island. Use one of the Ropes with the branch on the long branched tree West of the island. You will now swing over to the island. Talk to Grew tell him that you can help him and that you are a mighty adventurer. He will ask for a tooth of his enemy, Gorad. Before you swing back across, pick up some Jangerberries nearby if you forgot to bring your own; You will need them later in the quest.

    Note: If you pick the wrong options during the conversations, the Ogres on the island will attack you.


  6. To get to Toban and Gorad, you will need to gain access to the small island East of Gu'Tanoth. You will not be able to access the island above ground via the bridge because it is broken. Head to the cave entrance to the South West of Gu'Tanoth and descend down into to the caves.

Now, open Toban's chest nearby using Toban's key to obtain Og's Gold


  8. On that same island you will find Gorad. Attack him and upon his death an Ogre tooth will automatically appear in your inventory.


  9. Leave the island through the cave entrance and head back to Og. Give him his Gold and he will give you the Relic part 1.

  10. Now, use your second Rope on the branch to swing across to the island with Grew. Give him the Ogre tooth and he will give you the Relic part 2 along with a yellow Crystal.

  11. Swing back to the mainland and return to the Watchtower Wizard. Use the Relic parts with him and he will give you an Ogre relic. With this relic, you will be able to enter Gu'Tanoth.

  12. Leave Yanille through its Western city gate and follow the path to the South up the hill. Then, take the West fork until you reach a gate guarded by 2 Ogre guards. Use the Ogre relic with one of them and they will allow you to pass through the gates.

    Note: If you talk to them instead of using the Ogre relic with them, they will throw you back down the hill causing you to lose 300 Life points. When this happens, head back up the hill. This time you may talk to them and they will accept the Ogre relic.
