Getting startedEdit

  • Speak to King Shareen in the Grand Tree. (Chat 1-2) Accept the quest to get a Translation book and a Bark sample.
  • Travel to the island east of Yanille - fairy ring code: CLS. You may also use the minigame teleport for Nightmare Zone, a Watchtower/Yanille teleport, the Castle Wars teleport using a Ring of Dueling then running east, or a charter ship to Port Khazard.
  • Talk to Hazelmere, he will take your Bark sample and give you a message.


  • RSladder
    Return to King Shareen (Ring of Wealth if completed Tree Gnome Village, otherwise a Necklace of passage to Outpost). He will ask what the message says. Tell him: (1-5-5-2-1-4)
    • "A man came to me with the King's seal."
    • "I gave the man Daconia rocks."
    • "And Daconia rocks will kill the tree!"
  • Head south. At the bottom of the ramp, go up the ladder to speak with Glough.


  • Return to King Shareen, and he will tell you that Glough has caught a human. Ask to see the prisoner.
  • Talk to the prisoner Charlie on the top floor of the grand tree. He tells you to search Glough's house.
  • Go to Glough's house. Search the cupboard, and you will find his journal.
  • Talk to Glough.
  • Talk to Charlie, he will tell you about the Shipyard on Karamja, the password is Ka-Lu-Min.
  • The king appears and tell you to escape using the Gnome glider on top of the tree.
  • Travel with the glider


  • The glider will crash near the Shipyard. Run east past the level 53 jogres to the shipyard gate.
  • Open the gate and a worker will stop you. Tell him Glough sent you, then give the password Ka-Lu-Min. (2-1-2-2)
  • Find the foreman on the southern dock. Kill him or talk to him to get a Lumber order.
  • If you talk to him, he will ask you some security questions.
    • "How is Glough's wife?" -> "Sadly his wife is no longer with us"
    • "What is Glough's favourite food?" -> "Worm holes"
    • "What is Glough's girlfriend's name?" -> "Anita"
  • Take the Lumber order to the king. (Teleport into the stronghold or get Femi to sneak you in for 1,000 coins). The king will not believe you when you show him the Lumber order.


  • Speak to Charlie again on the top floor of the Grand Tree.
  • Speak to Anita up the stairs west of the swamp, northwest of the Grand Tree. She will give you a key.
  • Go to Glough's house, and use the key to open the chest and take the Invasion plans.
  • Take the invasion plans to the king. He will give you four letters made of sticks (4 empty inv space).
  • Climb the watchtower in Glough's house. Use the sticks with the four pillars to spell out TUZO

Encountering the Black DemonEdit

  • After you enter and talk to Glough, a level 172 Black demon will appear and attack you.

  • Talk to the king and he will ask you to locate the last Daconia stone.
  • Search the roots until you find it. (Make sure to click continue on the dialouge when you find the stone)
  • Talk to the king one last time.
  • Quest complete!
