Old School RuneScape Wiki

The animate rock scroll is a quest item used in the One Small Favour quest as well as in King's Ransom. It contains the spell Um nahi listic durooo-rah!. It is obtained by giving some iron oxide to Wizard Cromperty in Ardougne. The scroll is used on a girl named Petra who has been accidentally embedded into the rock face of a cave near the Fishing Guild. After using it on her, however, the player accidentally animates some nearby rocks, bringing Slagilith to life. The player must kill this creature before trying again and successfully releasing Petra. The animation of using this spell looks like Wind Wave.

Sometimes you would not be able to cast this, and you would receive an in-game message, "You don't feel that you should cast this with enemies around". If this happens, kill the giant bats and goblins directly outside the room to fix the problem.

If you try to cast this with Slagilith alive, you would receive this message, "You're a little too busy fighting to cast that right now."

Once she has been freed, the player must return to Phantuwti in Seers' Village in order to complete the next step in the quest.

In King's Ransom, it is needed to free King Arthur from the statue underneath the Black Knights' Fortress. The scroll is obtained again by simply talking to Wizard Cromperty.
