Death plateau puzzle

The Equipment Room

  • Speak to Denulth in the Burthorpe camp. (Chat 11)
  • Ask Eohric on the 1st floor[?] of the castle about the guard that was on duty last night. (Chat 1)
  • Speak to Harold upstairs in the bar in Burthorpe. (Chat 1)
  • Talk to Eohric again.
  • Return to Harold.
  • Give him Asgarnian ales.
  • Give him the Blurberry special. (Chat 3)
  • Bet with Harold, you must bet over 60 gold (500 to immediately bankrupt him). (Chat 2)
    • You will automatically win since he is drunk. If by chance, you have not brought the Blurberry special, just talk to him again and offer to gamble.
    • Continue to gamble until Harold is bankrupt.
  • Gamble until he gives you an "IOU". Read it to receive the combination. Make sure you keep this combination until the end of the quest.
  • Go to the castle and place the 5 coloured balls as shown in the image. The door will unlock (you have to read the note for this to work ).
  • Go through the door north of the table and climb the ladder.
  • Talk to the archer there, and he will thank you for getting the combination right and opening the door. Make sure you talk to him and not attack him; if you do attack him however, climb down the ladder before heading back up and talk to him again.

The Secret Path

  • Go north-west of Burthorpe, enter the cave.
  • Ask Saba about another way up Death Plateau. (Chat 2)
  • Leave the cave, continue north-west then go south at the fork.
  • Talk to Tenzing. (Chat 1) (BEWARE: If you are an Ironman, be sure to have an open spot in your inventory!)
  • Talk to Dunstan by the anvil in north-east Burthorpe.
  • Talk to Denulth where you started the quest.
  • Talk to Dunstan to exchange your climbing boots and iron bar for spiked boots.
  • Return to Tenzing; give him 10 bread, 10 trout and the spiked boots to get the map. The bread and trout must be un-noted, and the items must be given all in one go.
  • Hop the stile and take the path north and around to the east (past the second mountain goat) until a message appears in the chat box (NOT the Death Plateau warning, there is a second message).
  • Talk to Denulth (make sure you have the combination with you when you do).
  • Quest complete!
