Here you can pick up the jug of water that spawns in the east room of the palace. Otherwise, take the road south towards Link to LumbridgeLumbridge. Cross the north bridge to the forge, and smith a Item image of bronze bar, File:bronze bar.pngbronze bar there, or use the Al Kharid forge if you are there.

Go to Link to Lumbridge CastleLumbridge Castle and spin all the wool. Take the jug from the kitchen and fill it with water if you didn't get the jug of water from the palace, then take a pot from the kitchen, and a bucket from the basement if you need them.

Items required: 3 Balls of wool, rope (unless buying from Ned), 2 onions or yellow dye, 1 redberries, flour, ashes, a bucket of water, soft clay, a bronze bar, onion and 50 coins (unless teleporting).

You begin your quest in the palace of Link to Al KharidAl Kharid by talking to (Chancellor) Chat head image of Hassan, File:Hassan chathead.pngHassan. He will direct you to a shifty looking fellow outside the northern perimeter of the palace, who goes by the name of Chat head image of Osman, File:Osman chathead.pngOsman. Osman will tell you to find and speak to his daughter Chat head image of Leela, File:Leela chathead.pngLeela, who can be found strolling east of Link to Draynor VillageDraynor Village just south of the wheat field.

Dye the wig.

Go in to the jail directly east of Draynor as quickly as possible, or attack the guards. This is a Link to multicombat areamulticombat area, however, so unless you're level 26 or higher, you should not attempt to attack them. A good idea would be to bring food, even though they only hit up to a mere 3 damage. If Chat head image of Lady Keli, File:Lady Keli chathead.pngLady Keli is not in or around the building, wait a little - she'll respawn. Then, tell her she's famous all over Link to Old School RuneScapeRuneScape, then ask her about her latest plan, and that she must have been very skillful. Ask her then if she's sure his people won't try and rescue him. Ask her if you can see the key and then if you can hold it for a short amount of time. If you've gotten the soft clay with you, you shall make an imprint in the clay.

Go to the bank and get the Item image of bronze bar, File:bronze bar.pngbronze bar and 20 Coins 1coins and return to Osman so he can make the bronze key.

Saving the Prince

Items required: 3 Beers, rope, a bronze key, a pink skirt, a wig, and skin paste.

Talk to Chat head image of Leela, File:Leela chathead.pngLeela, she will be happy about the plan and recommend that you talk to the witch for the paste, if you have all the ingredients talk to Leela once again and then head for the jail. Talk to Joe and offer him a drink, (be aware that only normal beer will work) and another, and another. Use the rope on Chat head image of Lady Keli, File:Lady Keli chathead.pngLady Keli, the key on the cell door, then talk to Chat head image of Prince Ali, File:Prince Ali chathead.pngPrince Ali and he will use the disguise and escape. A message will appear saying that you are now a friend of Link to Al KharidAl Kharid and you don't have to pay to enter the gate connecting Link to LumbridgeLumbridge and Al Kharid ever again. Now get out, trying to avoid the remaining guards. Don't be long, as Lady Keli will quickly respawn!

Now go pass through the gate that connects Lumbridge and Al Kharid for free, and go and talk to Chat head image of Hassan, File:Hassan chathead.pngHassan in the Al Kharid palace to claim your reward.

Note: From now on, should you attempt to talk to Lady Keli, a message appears over her head (the same way a message appears over a player's head when he/she speaks) saying that you tricked her. She will tell guards to get you, after which one of the guards will say, "Yes, M'Lady" and attack you; however, you can escape by running out of the jail grounds.

  • The Chat head image of jail guard, File:jail guard chathead.pngjail guards are Link to Aggressivenessaggressive to players level 52 and lower. It's probably better to enter the compound from the east side, and at lower Link to combat levelcombat levels, try to find a time when other players are attacking the guards, or go to a busy world where many players would be training there. Be advised that the guards may stop fighting the higher levels to attack other players. As well, to get them out, have them come outside, and go barely inside so that you are inside and they are outside, and close the door.
  • If you lose any items, you can get them made again, except for the key - Chat head image of Leela, File:Leela chathead.pngLeela will replace it, at a price.
  • A way out of Link to Al KharidAl Kharid to Link to Port SarimPort Sarim:
    • Go south to Link to Shantay PassShantay Pass and talk to Chat head image of Shantay, File:Shantay chathead.pngShantay.
    • Choose "What is this place?", and then "I am an outlaw".
    • Refuse to pay the 5-coin fine, twice, and you will be transferred to the "high security" jail south of Port Sarim, pick the lock to the door, and walk out past the sleeping guard.
