Start point Pirate Pete, at a dock due north of Port Phasmatys. Pirate Pete, at a dock due north of Port Phasmatys.
Official difficulty Experienced
Description Zombie pirates have arisen on Braindeath Island, and they don't look friendly! Production of 'rum' has stopped, and the pirate brewers are running scared. Can you overcome the horde of drunken, undead pirates? Can you even get to the island without getting a splitting headache?
Length Medium, 20-30 minutes
Items required Required:


  • Combat equipment to kill a level 150 monster, which uses the Melee attack style.
  • Slayer gloves or Relicym's balm are suggested as there are monsters which can cause disease. Note however that a simple teleportation to clan wars and going through the portal and out will bring all your stats back to maximum, which can easily be done after the quest as it does not or very rarely damage you.


Enemies to defeat


Starting out

  • Take a rake and a seed dibber from the leprechaun if you haven't got one already.
  • Talk to Pirate Pete, decline the money. (Chat 111)
  • Finish talking to Captain Braindeath (don't cancel the dialogue after the cutscene).


  • Leave the building to the south, down the stairs.
  • Go south past the zombies and plant the blindweed in the southeast-most patch.
  • Wait about 5 minutes for it to grow. Pick the plant.
  • Talk to Captain Braindeath.

  • Take a bucket.
  • Leave the building using the stairs to the south, head west to the bridge, and go through the gate north of 50% Luke.
  • Head north to the water source on the map, and fill the bucket with stagnant water.
  • Return to the brewery and add the stagnant water to the hopper. (Ectophial and talking to Pirate Pete is faster than walking back.)

The evil spirit

  • Talk to Captain Braindeath.
