Start Point:
House near Baxtorian Falls.
To Start:
Speak to Almera.
  1. Make your way to the Baxtorian Falls, South of the Barbarian Outpost. Talk to Almera in her house and offer her to help her son, who is looking for treasure at the waterfall.

    Note: The easiest way to reach the location is by teleporting to the Barbarian Outpost using a Games necklace.


  2. Leave the house through the back door and board the nearby raft. It will take you down stream but crash on a rock and break in half. You will then spot Hudon, the son. Tell him that his mother sent you and that he should go home. He will refuse because he is looking for treasure. Offer to help him, but he will reject your help saying that you are only here to steal the treasure.

  3. Now face downstream and you will see a small island with a rock and dead tree. Use the Rope with the rock to go across. Then, use the Rope on the dead tree and you will climb down the waterfall.

  4. You will appear on a ledge. Get in the barrel and you will end up by a fence, follow it up to a house.

    Note: Do not open the doorway on the ledge without Glarial's amulet or you will be dealt 50 damage. Attempting to climb the dead tree, will deal you 50 damage.


  5. Enter the house and ask Hadley about the area. Go upstairs and search the bookcases for a book called the "Book on baxtorian". Read it to learn more about the quest. Head back downstairs and speak to Hadley again.


  6. There are 2 options here. Either teleport using Yanille's lodestone, if you have it activated or you will have to head to the Tree Gnome Village. Teleport to East Ardougne and head south, or use a Ring of dueling to teleport to Castle Wars area and head northeast. Make your way through the maze, using the map below as a guidance, towards the entrance of the Tree Gnome Village dungeon.

    Note: If you have completed the Tree Gnome Village quest, then use an Amulet of glory(4) to teleport to Edgeville. From there, head to the Spirit tree northeast of the Grand Exchange and use it to teleport to the Tree Gnome Village. Leave the village through the loose railing to the southwest and head east to the entrance of the dungeon.

  7. Descend down the ladder and head into the eastern passageway. Search the odd colored crate in the east end for A key. Return to the ladder and go into western passageway. Use the key with the jail door. Go inside of the jail and talk to the gnome Golrie. He will give you Glarial's pebble.

    Note: Beware of the Zombies, Giant bats, and Hobgoblins.

  8. Leave the cave and visit a bank. Deposit all your armor, weapons, runes and enchanted jewelry. Withdraw Glarial's pebble and food. Head to the Glarial's tombstone east of Hadley's house, where you obtained the Book on baxtorian, and use Glarial's pebble with the grave.

    Note: You will not be able to enter the tomb if you have any armor, weapons, runes or jewelry on you. Beware, prayers do not work down in the tomb!

  9. Once you are in the tomb, head west past the monsters. Open and search the chest to find Glarial's amulet. Now, run into the southern corridor and search the tomb for Glarial's urn.

    Beware of Zombies and Skeletons. Also watch out for Moss giants as they can use magic attacks, which hit up to 184.

  10. Now climb the ladder and leave the tomb. Visit a bank and withdraw a Rope, 6 Water runes, 6 Air runes, 6 Earth runes, and some food and armor if you have a low Combat level.

    Note: Make sure you also have Glarial's amulet and Glarial's urn in your inventory.

  11. Go back to Almera's house and board the raft again. Once more, use the rope with the rock and the dead tree to reach the ledge. Open the doorway on the ledge to enter the Waterfall Dungeon. Inside you will find doors to three passageways. Head into the eastern passageway. Search the odd colored crate in the east end for A key. Enter the tunnel to the left and go through the door, pick up the key from the ground. Now use the key with the next door to access the temple.

    Note: You can only open the door on the ledge with Glarial's amulet, but it does not have to be equipped. If you try to open the door without the amulet, then you will take 8 damage, will fall to the bottom of the river, and will have to get the amulet again from Glarial's tomb. Attempting to climb the dead tree will also deal you 8 damage.


  12. Inside the temple, you will see 2 statues and 6 pillars. Place 1 Water rune on each pillar, then 1 Air rune on each pillar, and finally 1 Earth rune on each pillar.

    Note: if you leave the temple without placing all the runes on the pillars, you will have to restart with 6 new runes of each type.

    Every time you place a rune on a pillar, the rune will vanish into thin air. Now, use Glarial's amulet with her statue, making the ground rise up to the chalice. Walk up to the steps and use Glarial's urn with the chalice.

    Note: If you touch the chalice before having used Glarial's urn with it, then you will be flushed out of the room and will have to get Glarial's amulet again from her tomb.
