Gathering the items

Edmond's house.

Starting the quest

Items required: Dwellberries, 4 buckets of water, a spade, Item image of %7B%7B%3APicture%7D%7D, File:Picture.png Elena's picture and a rope.

Talking to Edmond.

Once you talk to Chat head image of Edmond, File:Edmond chathead.png Edmond, he'll tell you to talk to his wife about getting some sort of protection against the plague. His wife, Chat head image of Alrena, File:Alrena chathead.png Alrena, is just inside the house (or wandering outside), and she'll tell you she can make a Item image of %7B%7B%3Agas+mask%7D%7D, File:gas mask.png gas mask if you get her some Item image of %7B%7B%3Adwellberries%7D%7D, File:dwellberries.png dwellberries. Give her the berries, and she'll give you a mask. If you need a spare, there will be one in the cupboard. Also, make sure you take the picture of Elena from inside the house while you're there.

Talk to Edmond again, and he'll tell you about his plan to dig under the wall and get into Link to West Ardougne West Ardougne. First, you'll need to soften the ground. Use your Item image of %7B%7B%3ABucket+of+water%7D%7D, File:Bucket of water.png buckets of water on the mud patch behind his house (between the cabbages potatoes). You can use one bucket, but you'll have to keep refilling it with the sink inside. Then use the Item image of %7B%7B%3Aspade%7D%7D, File:spade.png spade on the softened ground.

Pulling the grate.

You'll fall under and find Edmond there as well. Walk south, and you'll find a pipe blocked by bars. After pulling it to no avail, just use a Item image of %7B%7B%3Arope%7D%7D, File:rope.png rope on the pipe, and talk to Edmond to pull the grate off. Put on your gas mask and climb inside to go into West Ardougne.

Finding Elena

Items required: Elena's picture.

NPC locations.

Once inside Link to West Ardougne West Ardougne, talk to Chat head image of Jethick, File:Jethick chathead.png Jethick. He's standing a few paces to the east. Show him Chat head image of Elena, File:Elena chathead.png Elena's picture. He'll tell you to go check the Rehnison house and give you a book that he borrowed from them. Head north and a little west (see picture) to find the house sitting right up against the edge of the wall. They'll let you in when you mention you have the book. Once inside, talk to Chat head image of Martha Rehnison, File:Martha Rehnison chathead.png Martha or Chat head image of Ted Rehnison, File:Ted Rehnison chathead.png Ted Rehnison, and then go upstairs and talk to the daughter of the household, Chat head image of Milli Rehnison, File:Milli Rehnison chathead.png Milli, who'll tell you more about Elena's whereabouts.

Head back out of the house and south of the town square to find the house the girl told you about. You'll recognise it because of a big black "X" on the doors. Attempt to open the doors; the Chat head image of Mourner, File:Mourner chathead.png Mourners won't let you in because it's been hit hard by the plague. Tell them that you're looking for a kidnapped girl, and they'll tell you you need permission from Chat head image of Bravek, File:Bravek chathead.png Bravek to enter the house.

Getting inside

Items required: A bucket of milk, chocolate dust and snape grass.

Talking to Bravek.

Go back to the town square and go into the large building just north of the manhole. Ask the clerk, who is through the door, then tell him you're there for something very important (Say, "This is urgent though!"), and he'll let you inside to see Chat head image of Bravek, File:Bravek chathead.png Bravek. He can hardly talk to you, though, as he's badly hung over. He'll give you a tatty piece of paper with a recipe for a Item image of %7B%7B%3Ahangover+cure%7D%7D, File:hangover cure.png hangover cure. To make it, put the Item image of %7B%7B%3Achocolate+dust%7D%7D, File:chocolate dust.png chocolate dust into the Item image of %7B%7B%3Abucket+of+milk%7D%7D, File:bucket of milk.png bucket of milk, and add Item image of %7B%7B%3Asnape+grass%7D%7D, File:snape grass.png snape grass. Give the concoction to him (be sure to use the snape grass on the chocolatey milk or else you'll drink it), and tell him that the mourners won't listen to you. After, he'll give you a Item image of %7B%7B%3Awarrant%7D%7D, File:warrant.png warrant that grants the permission you need to go search for Chat head image of Elena, File:Elena chathead.png Elena in the plague house.

Rescuing Elena.

Head back to the house, and try to enter again. The Chat head image of Mourner, File:Mourner chathead.png Mourners will try to stop you, but when given the warrant from Bravek they'll be rather at a loss, giving you a chance to sneak inside. Once inside, search the barrel to the [?]west of the staircase to find Item image of %7B%7B%3Aa+small+key%7D%7D, File:a small key.png a small key. Elena is downstairs. Go downstairs and unlock the door with the key you just found, and release the grateful girl.

Head back to the manhole and talk to Chat head image of Edmond, File:Edmond chathead.png Edmond to finish the quest. You can then get back outside using the mud pile on the east wall of the sewer.
