Enemies to defeat Skeleton Hellhound (level 97)


Starting out

Items required: A steel longsword, 2 steel short swords, a steel mace, a steel warhammer and a steel dagger.

Note: All must be held in your Link to inventoryinventory at the same time.

Speak to Chat head image of Vanstrom Klause, File:Vanstrom Klause chathead.pngVanstrom Klause, a man in maroon-brown clothes, in the north-east corner of the Link to Hair of the DogHair of the Dog tavern in Link to CanifisCanifis. He tells you about Link to the Myrequethe Myreque, an organisation fighting Vanstrom Klause chatheadvampyres, which is currently low on weapons and needs an arsenal of steel weapons to survive; Vanstrom doesn't have the time to bring the weapons to his friends he has never actually met yet. If you agree to help Vanstrom, he will also tell you about a boatman in Link to Mort'tonMort'ton who is rumoured to be able to show you the Myreque hideout.

Note: Make sure that you offer to help (and that your Link to Quest journalQuest journal indicates that you have started the quest) or else your trip to Mort'ton will be in vain.


Items required: Druid pouch (must have 5 charges), blessed silver sickle, 6 planks, a hammer, 225 steel nails, the steel weapons, combat gear (for level 97 Skeleton Hellhound), 10 coins or Ring of charos (a).

Go to Link to Mort'tonMort'ton. You can walk on foot, but beware that the ghasts on the way will drain charges from your Item image of Druid pouch, File:Druid pouch.pngDruid pouch. Make sure to have plenty of charges because five items are needed in your pouch when you reach your destination. A way around this is to take six Item image of Mort myre fungus, File:Mort myre fungus.pngMort myre fungus so that you can fill the pouch twice once you arrive in Mort'ton. Alternative methods of reaching Mort'ton include the Link to Swamp BoatySwamp Boaty located at Link to The HollowsThe Hollows, reachable on foot or with Link to Fairy ringsfairy ring bkr (closer to Canafis), bip (west of Mort'ton through the winding path), a Item image of Mort'ton teleport, File:Mort'ton teleport.pngMort'ton teleport, the Link to Minigame Group FinderMinigame Group Finder to Link to Shades of Mort'ton (minigame)Shades of Mort'ton, or a Item image of Barrows teleport, File:Barrows teleport.pngBarrows teleport.

Cyreg's location, east of Mort'ton.

Find Chat head image of Cyreg Paddlehorn, File:Cyreg Paddlehorn chathead.pngCyreg Paddlehorn. He is located on the eastern edge of Mort'ton, near his boat at the bridge leading to the Barrows. Attempt to persuade him to bring you to Link to the Myrequethe Myreque. Cyreg will be very secretive about how to find them though, so you will have to choose the correct sequence of responses to make him feel guilty in order for him to allow you to use his boat. Choose the following responses in this order:
  1. Well, I guess they'll just die without weapons...
  2. Resourceful enough to get their own steel weapons?
  3. If you don't tell me, their deaths are on your head!
  4. What kind of man are you to say that you don't care?

He will agree to take you, but he needs three wooden Item image of plank, File:plank.pngplanks. They are sold in Link to Razmire Builders MerchantsRazmire Builders Merchants, Link to Mort'tonMort'ton's Link to general storegeneral store, but you must have (partially) completed Link to Shades of Mort'tonShades of Mort'ton and cured Chat head image of Razmire Keelgan, File:Razmire Keelgan chathead.pngRazmire Keelgan with Serum 208 (1)Serum 208 to use it.

Also, be sure to take the Link to Swamp BoatySwamp Boaty by paying the 10 gold or using the Item image of Ring of charos, File:Ring of charos.pngring of charos (a), or you won't be able to proceed later on in the quest.


In Search of the Myreque - repairing bridge

Repairing the rope bridge.

Once you land at Link to The HollowsThe Hollows, go north, avoiding the Ghastghasts, until you see a strange tree. Climb up to see a damaged rope bridge. Mend the bridge as you walk along, which requires 75 Item image of steel nails, File:steel nails.pngsteel nails per Item image of plank, File:plank.pngplank (225 steel nails total) and three Item image of plank, File:plank.pngplanks, and then climb down the other side of the bridge.

Go north to the strange-looking hollow tree and talk to Chat head image of Curpile Fyod, File:Curpile Fyod chathead.pngCurpile Fyod out front. Tell him you've brought the weapons for Link to the Myrequethe Myreque and then answer some questions for him to prove that you are indeed telling the truth. If you fail to answer the questions correctly, you will be knocked unconscious and wake up at the boat again, but luckily the bridge will require no building the second time. Here are the answers to the possible questions:

Question Answer
Name the only female member of the Myreque.Sani Piliu
Who is the leader of the Myreque?Veliaf Hurtz
What is the boatman's name?Cyreg Paddlehorn
Who was previously a scholar?Polmafi Ferdygris
What family is rumoured to rule over Morytania?Drakan
Who is the youngest member of the Myreque?Ivan Strom
What does Myreque mean?Hidden in Myre

When you have correctly answered the guard's questions, circle around his tree to the north, and you will see a set of doors in the earth (they are unlocked after you've answered the questions). Enter and proceed north following the tunnel, but don't go all the way north to the wall. Instead, take a little east branch and right-click on the "Squeeze-past stalagmite" option to enter the secret cave of the Myreque.

Start off by talking to Chat head image of Veliaf Hurtz, File:Veliaf Hurtz chathead.pngVeliaf; then, talk to all of the others before coming back to Veliaf. It isn't necessary to actually ask any questions of them (you don't need any more info to finish the quest); just say, "Ok thanks", and talk to another one.

Go back and talk to Veliaf again. He will now accept your weapons, however...

Vanstrom Klause

When finished, give the weapons to Chat head image of Veliaf Hurtz, File:Veliaf Hurtz chathead.pngVeliaf. A Link to cutscenecutscene ensues where a strange mist envelopes the room, and Veliaf realises that it is a Vanstrom Klause chatheadvampyre. The mist shifts, revealing Chat head image of Vanstrom Klause, File:Vanstrom Klause chathead.pngVanstrom Klause, the stranger you were trying to help. He kills Chat head image of Sani Piliu, File:Sani Piliu chathead.pngSani Piliu and Chat head image of Harold Evans, File:Harold Evans chathead.pngHarold Evans with throwing knives and transforms into his vampyre form. After performing the murders, Vanstrom disappears, before summoning a level 97 Skeleton HellhoundSkeleton Hellhound ("his little pet") to finish off the remaining members. In order to regain Link to the Myrequethe Myreque's trust after having lured Vanstrom to them, you must kill the hellhound.

Skeleton hellhound safe spot

The safespot for killing the hellhound with ranged attacks.

The hellhound only has 55 Hitpoints iconHitpoints, but hits fairly hard; lower levels should bring Link to foodfood. Magic iconMagic is extremely effective compared to Link to MeleeMelee, as it has no Magic Defence iconDefence. If you have access to Link to Protect from MeleeProtect from Melee, the fight will be much easier. If using Magic or Ranged iconRanged, you can Link to Safe spotsafespot the hellhound by getting it stuck on the west side of the barrel located in the northeastern corner of the room.

On death, the hellhound will drop two Item image of Uncut ruby, File:Uncut ruby.pnguncut rubies and four Item image of big bones, File:big bones.pngbig bones. Talk to Veliaf Hurtz, who'll say he needs to speak to his superior in order to instate you into the Myreque; you can also ask him more questions about the Myreque and Vanstrom. Finally, ask him how to leave the hideout; he tells you about a secret passage to Link to CanifisCanifis. Leave the chamber, and search the wall at the end of the tunnel; it will open. Now, climb up the ladder.

The dungeon underneath Hair of the Dog Inn houses the Myreque's hideout.

Myreque Map for ISOM

The Myreque shortcut can be accessed via the trapdoor behind the Canifis pub.

You will surface south of the tavern. The nearby trapdoor leads back to the cave, which you can use as an alternate route back to Link to Mort'tonMort'ton in the future.

Note: Exiting through the trap door is a requirement of the quest. Exiting through the Link to Fairy ringsfairy ring or other method will require travelling here again to complete the quest. You can not return by fairy ring until the quest is completed.

Proceed back into the tavern and seek out Chat head image of Vanstrom Klause, File:Vanstrom Klause chathead.pngVanstrom Klause, only to find that Vanstrom isn't there but only a Chat head image of Stranger (In Search of the Myreque), File:Stranger (In Search of the Myreque) chathead.pngStranger.
