|Release date||22 March 2006 (Update)|
In Aid of the Myreque is the third quest in the Myreque quest series. After discovering the secret group called the Myreque, the player must now help them move to a new location in Burgh de Rott, where they would be closer to the heart of their vampire oppressors.
- Warning: You need to be on normal spellbook to complete this quest, since you need to cast Lvl-1 Enchant.
|Start point||Go to Canifis and down the ladder behind the pub there, through the secret wall and squeeze past the stalagmite on the east side of the cave. Speak to Veliaf.|
|Description||After the attack on the Myreque by Vanstrom Klause and with the deaths of both Sani and Harold, Veliaf is counting on you to help. Now that the Myreque freedom fighters' base camp has been revealed, they'll need to move on and set up base somewhere else.
Veliaf has heard of a little known village south of Mort'ton, referred to as 'Burgh de Rott'. This could be just the place to set up operations to strike back against the evil of Lowerniel Vergidiyad Drakan and his Vampyric overlordship in Morytania. And who knows what other secrets about Morytania and its dark past will be revealed?

Starting the questEdit
- Travel to Canifis, there is a tunnel just outside the the bar to the south, proceed down the tunnel.
- When you're in the tunnel you will be in a small room. Search the wall directly south of the ladder you came down, you should be able to open it and walk through the secret passage. Continue to follow the tunnel slightly south until you come across an east branch of the tunnel.
- Right-click on the "Squeeze-past stalagmite" option to enter the secret cave of the Myreque and start the quest by speaking to Veliaf Hurtz. Tell him that you would like to join the Myreque; then, proceed to say "OK, tell me this information you have to impart" next ask him about the job, and after the conversation, say "OK, I'll do the job." This should begin the quest
Preparing to travel to Burgh de Rott Edit
Items required: take some food you don't mind losing (5 pieces is recommended if running past ghasts), a hammer, a pickaxe, a spade, 11 planks, 44 nails, 1 swamp paste. Keep at least 6 inventory spaces semi-free. You will also need 4 buckets, but you can get these while in Burgh de Rott. If you have completed Shades of Mort'ton you can get the hammer and planks from the Mort'ton builder shop.
Burgh de Rott is a town which doesn't have a bank. This quest requires that you repair the town of Burgh de Rott including a bank, a general store and a bar. Therefore, before you travel make sure you have what you need to complete the next part of the quest. Before travelling also keep in mind that you will be attacked by aggressive shades when in Mort'ton if you are lower level, food is recommended, but 1 piece of food is required in order to enter Burgh de Rott.
Canifis is the closest available bank, and you have several options of travelling from Canifis to Burgh de Rott, you could teleport to the Shades of Mort'ton minigame if you have completed Shades of Mort'ton, you could use the boat shortcut you first used in the previous part of the quest. Lastly, you could run through the swamp again.
Getting back from Burgh de Rott also requires some thought. You could use the fairy ring teleport if you have started Fairytale II, a slayer ring, Kharyrll Teleport, ectophial, or again, the boat shortcut from the previous part of the quest.
Arrival at Burgh de Rott Edit
When you arrive in Mort'ton (the town closest to Burgh de Rott) using whatever method, head south to find angry residents at the gate. Before being able to enter, first talk to Florin from the outside of the gate and then deposit a food item into the open chest in directly front of the gate. Florin will then let you into the town. You are now out of danger from shades.
Clearing out the Bar Edit
Go to the pub just south of the gate, climb over the broken down wall and mine the rubble by using your pickaxe on it. There is a bucket spawn near the well near the gate if you forgot. it's recommended to world hop to pick up additional buckets. Climb down the ladder.
There are 15 piles of rubble to remove in total, and you may find that you need to make several trips. Mine the rubble and then use a spade on what's left to fill the buckets of rubble. Each bucket can contain 3 nodes worth of rubble.When the buckets are filled, you should empty them into the rubble pile outside the bar. Search the big pile of rubble outside of the pub when you're done to receive the dusty scroll and plaster fragment required later in the quest. Every few rubble piles you mine, you will get 6 items that you must make room for: nails (10 bronze, 5 iron, 3 steel, 2 black, 1 mithril), 1 rock, and 1 broken glass. You can drop these immediately as these items have no significance. This is why it's worthwhile to keep some empty spaces. The black nails sell particularly well to players though.
If you drop items to make room for the junk, they will disappear if you exit the basement. If you only mine the rocks to rubble and exit the area, the rubble will be restored to rocks and you will have to mine them again.
After you are finished mining all of the rubble, there will be a cutscene of you noticing a plaque on the wall. The plaque holds no significance for this quest.
Go and talk to Razvan again, and he will tell you to patch up the town a bit.
Repairing the general Store EditTalk to Aurel in the general store, and he will tell you that you need to repair the roof and the walls of the shop.Go back to the shop, and use the planks on both the roof and the walls of the shop to repair it. Then, talk to Aurel again - he will want the store stocked before he can open it.
You will be given a crate to fill up with these items.
He requires the following:
You will now need to visit a bank. Fill the crate with the items required and while you are at the bank pick up these items for the next part of the quest:
The snail meat can be acquired by killing snails throughout the Mort Myre Swamp, or purchased on the Grand Exchange. Any type works.
Repairing the Bank Edit
To repair the bank, you will need a hammer, five planks and one swamp paste, as well as 20 nails.
Repair the teller window (the broken glass in the booth) by using swamp paste, and then the wall at the back of the bank as you did before. Then, ask Cornelius what to do, and in the same conversation ask him: Do you fancy the job?. You will now be able to use the bank.hammer, 2 steel bars, 1 piece of coal, 1 tinderbox, Efaritay's aid or a silver weapon such as the Silver sickle (b), and some food for lower-leveled players.
- Talk to Razvan again, he will ask that you fix the furnace.
- Take two steel bars, a tinderbox, a hammer and one coal and repair the furnace to the south-east side of the city. Bring your silver weapon along with you.
- Use a steel bar on the broken furnace to repair it.
- Put the coal inside of the newly fixed furnace, and light it with the tinderbox. You will then see a cutscene.
- After the cutscene, you will need to prepare for a fight with your silver weapon or any weapon wearing the ring. Go to the general store, and talk to Gadderanks and then Wiskit. Talk to one of the Vampyre Juvinates and Gadderanks will try to kill you.
- Kill Gadderanks (he's fairly easy), and then kill the Vampyre juvinates with your silver weapon. During the fight, Veliaf will come and assist you by taking on one of the vampyres.
- Talk to Gadderanks again, and he will tell you of the vampire's weaknesses and then die. You will get his hammer, which is similar to a Granite maul but stronger against Shades. (If your inventory has no room for the hammer, you can speak to Aurel to receive it later.)
- Talk to Veliaf, and he will tell you to meet him back at his hideout in the Hollows.
Items required: Armour, food, and a weapon (those that work are specified below) in order to defeat the vampyres. You may now bring the steel equipment (med helm, chain, legs), including the sickle, but do not bring the food before entering Canifis, as ghasts WILL rot the food on the way back to Canifis.
- Go back to Veliaf, where you started the quest and talk to him again.
- He will have you talk to Radigad and Polmafi to have them head to the Burgh de Rott hideout, but wants you to escort Ivan Strom to the Paterdomus Temple because the mission is becoming too dangerous for the young, aspiring priest.
- You may also take some armour, food, and a weapon for Ivan, but remember that you will not get any of them back. Talk to Polmafi Ferdygris and Radigad Ponfit first, and after that "use" a steel chainbody, steel platelegs, steel med helm, and a silver sickle on Ivan, who will accept your gifts and wear it under his robes. You may also provide food to him before you start; Ivan only likes "cooked snails, salmon, cooked slimy eel or stew."
- Take armour and a silver weapon for yourself OR the ring mentioned earlier so you can use ANY weapon to kill vampires. The blessed silver sickle has no attack stats, so it is recommended to use the the Wolfbane dagger from Priest in Peril, blessed axe from Animal Magnetism or the Silverlight from Demon Slayer (Darklight and Arclight also work).
You get to choose between two routes through Mort Myre Swamp. You will be attacked on both the 'long' and the 'short' routes. On the long route, you need to fight four level 50 Vampyre Juvinates while on the short route, you'll be attacked by two level 75 ones. The 'short' route is probably easier than the 'long' route because it's easier to defend Ivan, despite the fact that you have a harder fight. If you can, try and get Ivan behind you so he can't be attacked by the juvinates.
WARNING: The area is instanced, thus if you die you will lose all your items except untradeables and the 3 most valuable items (4 if Protect Item Prayer is activated). Therefore do not bring anything you don't want to lose!
- Strategy: When you first enter the fight area, don't move. Bring any attack spell with you, and use it to lure the first vampire to you and kill it. Remember to use your silver weapon to fight the vampires OR equip the ring mentioned earlier! The second vampire will always attack Ivan at the same point, so just hope that Ivan survives until you finish off the first one. It is possible to finish this part without giving Ivan anything, but it is difficult, and it will often require several attempts just to keep Ivan alive. Therefore, it is highly recommended to give Ivan armour and food. It should also be noted that Ivan does NOT receive protection from the player's Protect from Melee prayer.
- If Ivan's health becomes too low (or after he runs out of food), he will teleport out. At this point, you might as well leave the area because killing the remaining vampires will not let you progress. When you leave, you will reappear somewhere around Canifis, so make your way back to where you spoke to Ivan to try again (make sure to collect food via the bank on your way back to him as he will need more). Once you defeat the vampires, you will complete the trek and appear outside the Temple of the Salve.
- If you take the short route with 2 level 70 Vampire Juvinates, you can keep Ivan safe by walking west once the fight starts into a spot with 3 seaweeds surrounding it, and then keep walking back and forth to the east and west until Ivan decides to go into that spot. Wait for the Vampire Juvinates to get close to you before attacking. This way, you can protect Ivan without giving him any supplies.
The rod of ivandisEdit
- After successfully escorting Ivan, talk to Drezel (inside the temple) at the River Salve, and get the key to the library from him (using chat option 1, 1, 2, 3, 4, 3). Mention that the lives of Morytania rest on his decision.
- Search the keyhole on the east side of the room Drezel is in. Use your key on the keyhole. Go down the trapdoor into the library, and search all the bookcases to the west side to get all the books; the one you want is called "Ancient book", titled inside The Sleeping Seven. The book tells you where to find Ivandis' grave.
- Go back to Canifis, and enter the trapdoor behind the pub. Search the south wall. Now, directly to your east you should see two wooden boards covering an entrance - use a hammer on the boards to get through and you should see a tomb that looks like a coffin.
- Use some soft clay on the top of the coffin to get a mould.
- Go to a furnace (the closest one is Port Phasmatys after Ghosts Ahoy; using an Ectophial is the fastest way there. An alternative is to use the Zanaris furnace or the Burgh de Rott furnace you fixed earlier), and use a silver bar, mithril bar, and cut sapphire to make a Silvthrill rod and enchant it using Lvl-1 Enchant.
- Take the enchanted Silvthrill rod and a rope back to the Temple of the Salve, use the rod with the well (in the room next to Drezel) to create the Rod of ivandis(10).
- Take the rod of ivandis to Burgh de Rott, go into the cellar of the pub and give it to Veliaf to complete the quest.
