The stone circle

Druidic Ritual - Kaqemeex

Speaking to Kaqemeex.

Items required: None.

Speak to Kaqemeex, in the stone circle north of Taverley, and he will tell you that the stone circle south of Varrock used to belong to them but was taken over by the dark wizards. He then tells you that you must speak to Sanfew.


Items required: None.

Go back south down the road and speak to Sanfew, located upstairs in the big octagonal Herblore shop marked with a herb (which is located two buildings south of the long building containing the Crystal chest), and tell Sanfew that you were sent to help with the ritual to purify the stone circle in Varrock. Sanfew will then tell you that he needs you to place raw rat meat, raw bear meat, raw beef and raw chicken in the Cauldron of Thunder.

The fastest way to obtain these items is to either buy them at the Grand Exchange or teleport to Varrock and run east out of the city. Kill the rat next to the south-east mine, then the bear slightly south of the mine. Continue south towards Lumbridge and kill a chicken, then a cow in the pasture.

If you do not wish to spend the time to hunt these animals, or are an Ironman and cannot use the Grand Exchange, you can purchase all four of the meat from Rufus' Meat Emporium if you have the route to Canifis unlocked.

Enchanting the meat

Items required: Raw bear meat, Raw rat meat, Raw chicken and Raw beef.

Druidic Ritual - Cauldron of Thunder

Enchanting the meats.

The Cauldron of Thunder is located in Taverley Dungeon. If you are a lower level, it is advised you bring food with you for the next part. Head south of Taverley and down the ladder. When you are down there, keep walking north, past the level 22 and level 25 skeletons until you see two level 19 suits of armour on stands next to a gate.

Note: When you attempt to open the gate, they will both come to life and one will attack you if your combat level is below 55.

Kill or ignore it and walk in. You will now see a cauldron. Use the raw meats in your inventory on the Cauldron of Thunder, and you will notice they will turn blue. The meats will change into their enchanted versions: enchanted bear, enchanted chicken, enchanted rat, and enchanted beef.

Going back

Items required: Enchanted bearenchanted chickenenchanted rat and enchanted beef.

Leave the dungeon the same way you entered and speak to Sanfew. He will take the meats and tell you to speak to Kaqemeex. Kaqemeex will thank you then tell you about the skill of Herblore.
