Brundt the Chieftain chathead
The Fremennik Trials - Talking to Chieftan Brundt

Talking to Brundt, the start point for the quest.

Begin the quest by speaking to Chat head image of Brundt the Chieftain, File:Brundt the Chieftain chathead.pngBrundt the Chieftain. He explains that the only way to become a Link to FremennikFremennik is if you impress seven of the twelve members of the council of elders enough that they give you their vote.

Each of the seven that consider accepting you have a personal task for you to complete. The other five council members' votes are unattainable.

You can do the trials in any order.

Manni the Reveller chathead

You can find Chat head image of Manni the Reveller, File:Manni the Reveller chathead.pngManni in the bar right next to Chat head image of Brundt the Chieftain, File:Brundt the Chieftain chathead.pngthe chieftain. He can be found walking around drinking. Talk to him and challenge him to see who can drink more beer before getting drunk. Take the Item image of keg of beer, File:keg of beer.pngkeg of beer and Item image of beer tankard, File:beer tankard.pngbeer tankard, which can be grabbed off the bar in the longhall.

Council workman location

The council worker's location.

Talk to him again to drink. You will lose no matter what, while he'll hardly get drunk at all. Go back to Link to Seers' VillageSeers' Village, and buy a Item image of Low alcohol keg, File:Low alcohol keg.pnglow-alcoholic keg of beer from a Chat head image of Poison Salesman, File:Poison Salesman chathead.pngPoison Salesman by the bar for 250 Coins 1coins. (Note: Buy a Item image of Beer tankard, File:Beer tankard.pngBeer here to save time getting the Item image of Strange object, File:Strange object.pngcherrybomb.)

The Fremennik Trials - Talking to the Poison Salesman

Talking to the poison salesman.

Give the Item image of beer, File:beer.pngbeer to the Chat head image of Council workman, File:Council workman chathead.pngCouncil workman, by using it on him, at the end of the bridge to Link to RellekkaRellekka to get a cherrybomb (you can get it while walking back from the poison salesman).

The Fremennik Trials - Drinking the Keg

A player competes with Manni.

Go to the Rellekka bar and look on the outside of the longhall for a pipe. It should be on the east wall - the same side with Chat head image of Olaf the Bard, File:Olaf the Bard chathead.pngOlaf the Bard. Light the cherrybomb with your Item image of tinderbox, File:tinderbox.pngtinderbox; then, hide it in the pipe. Walk into the hall, grab another keg of beer, and use the low-alcoholic keg of beer on the normal keg of beer. The cherrybomb will then explode, distracting the Fremennik and allowing you to switch the contents.

Talk to Manni again once you have switched the contents. After drinking the keg of beer, Manni will give you his vote after noticing that you drunk a whole keg of beer without any side effects.

Olaf the Bard

Olaf the Bard chathead

Items needed for Option 1: Combat equipment and a raw shark/manta ray/turtle

Items needed for Option 2: An axe, knife, raw shark/ray/turtle, potato, onion, cabbage, (also 40 Crafting and Woodcutting, and 25 Fletching).

You should see Chat head image of Olaf the Bard, File:Olaf the Bard chathead.pngOlaf east of the bar building where you started the quest. He'll give you his vote if you can prove your worth as a bard by performing at the longhall. The first thing you need is a lyre.

There are two ways to get a Item image of lyre, File:lyre.pnglyre:

  • Option 1: The player can kill Chat head image of Lanzig, File:Lanzig chathead.pngLanzig, Chat head image of Borrokar, File:Borrokar chathead.pngBorrokar, Chat head image of Lensa, File:Lensa chathead.pngLensa or Chat head image of Freidir, File:Freidir chathead.pngFreidir, who can drop the lyre. However, it is recommended to only kill Lanzig for the lyre, as Borrokar and Freidir have an extremely low drop rate, while Lanzig has an uncommon drop rate for the lyre. Lanzig respawns in approximately 18 seconds and can be killed quicker by world hopping. For mage and range users, you can use the fire in the middle of the room (as a blockade between you and Lanzig) to Link to Safe spotsafe-spot. You can also safe-spot Lanzig by opening the door east, attacking Lanzig, then going two steps east of the door to kill him from a distance.
Lanzig location

Lanzig's location.

  • Option 2: Make a lyre yourself. First, grab a Item image of potato, File:potato.pngpotato, Item image of cabbage, File:cabbage.pngcabbage, and Item image of onion, File:onion.pngonion from the vegetable patch in Link to RellekkaRellekka before you leave. Once you leave the gates, head east until you find a Link to Swaying treeSwaying tree, and cut a branch off it. You will need an axe (blessed will not work) and a Woodcutting iconWoodcutting level of 40 in order to cut the tree, and a Crafting level of 40 to make the unfinished lyre.

Then you will then need to string the unfinished lyre, but unfortunately only golden wool will work. Head southeast of the tree until you find several golden sheep and a golden tree. Near them will be a troll called Chat head image of Lalli, File:Lalli chathead.pngLalli, who will initially think you want the apples when you want the wool. He will tell you that he already gave it to another human, so go find him.

Note: You MUST start the trial by speaking with Olaf the Bard BEFORE speaking with Lalli or else he will not tell you about the other human.

The Fremennik Trials - Cutting the Swaying Tree

Cutting the Swaying tree.

The other human is Chat head image of Askeladden, File:Askeladden chathead.pngAskeladden, who is located outside the long hall in Rellekka. Talk to him and he will give you a Item image of pet rock, File:pet rock.pngpet rock which he fooled Lalli with. Return to Lalli with the rock, but he will refuse it because the rocks might have baby rocks, so tell him that you can make a delicious rock soup with it.

The Fremennik Trials - Olaf's Trial Map

Lalli's located at the Golden Apple Tree; Fossegrimen will enchant your finished lyre at the Strange Altar

Use the potato, cabbage, onion, and rock on Lalli's stew, which is just outside Lalli's cave home. Ask Lalli to taste it; he will like it and give you some golden fleece. The fleece will need to be strung into a ball of wool; even though there is a spinning wheel in Rellekka, you cannot use that until the quest is finished, so you will need to go to Seer's Village instead. Use the ball of wool on the unfinished lyre, which will require 25 Fletching.

The Fremennik Trials - Playing the Lyre

A player performs with their lyre.

Once you've obtained the lyre, you need to get it enchanted. Bring a Item image of raw shark, File:raw shark.pngraw shark, Item image of manta ray, File:manta ray.pngmanta ray, or Item image of sea turtle, File:sea turtle.pngsea turtle with you (if you have more than one lyre to enchant, then bring one fish for each lyre you wish to have enchanted; if using raw sharks, try to get raw sharks from Rufus' Meat Emporium in Canifis over a period of time). Southwest of Rellekka is a strange altar. With the lyre in your inventory, use your raw shark/manta ray/sea turtle on the strange altar. A spirit named Fossegrimen will appear and enchant your lyre for you.

Go back, and talk to Olaf the Bard again. Then, enter the door the Longhall Bouncer is guarding to go onstage. Play your lyre in front of the crowd, then talk to Olaf a final time to get his vote.

Sigli the Huntsman

Sigli the Huntsman chathead

Items needed: None but recommended to bring some food, armour, a weapon (a Halberd is best, ranged is not effective), and prayer potions.

The Fremennik Trials - Fighting the Draugen

A player fights the Draugen.

Sigli can be found near the entrance gate. Your task is to find the The DraugenDraugen, an immortal spirit, and defeat it to weaken it. Keep using the Item image of hunters' talisman, File:hunters' talisman.pnghunters' talisman that he gives you to find where to go. The talisman is used the same way you might use a Link to RunecraftingRunecrafting Link to talismantalisman; selecting locate gives a chat message in the direction to go. The Draugen moves around the Link to Fremennik ProvinceFremennik Province and can cross bridges. There is a small, transparent looking butterfly that follows the Draugen. It can be used to help located him. Level 48 Agility iconAgility can help by allowing you access to the shortcut log bridge, as the Draugen has a random location that changes frequently. It should be noted, that if a player wants to find the The DraugenDraugen easily and fast, the player can sit near the bridge to the east of the strange altar and camp in a spot. Eventually, the Draugen will appear, announced by a chat message, "The Draugen is here! Beware!" With the proper Link to Equipmentgear, a level-50 player should defeat him without problems. However, it should be noted that the Draugen is particularly resistant to ranged attacks. When you defeat him, the Draugen's essence will be absorbed into the hunters' talisman. Return with the talisman to Chat head image of Sigli the Huntsman, File:Sigli the Huntsman chathead.pngSigli to get his vote.

Sigmund the Merchant

Items needed: 5,000 coins

Sigmund The Merchant chathead

You can find Link to Sigmund the Merchant (Shop)Sigmund in the market. He will want you to get him an Item image of exotic flower, File:exotic flower.pngexotic flower. This may sound easy, but you will end up having to get something or do something for another person, kind of like a miniature Link to One Small FavourOne Small Favour quest. Refer to Link to #Walkthroughthe map above to easily locate the Link to Non-player characterNPCs.

The Fremennik Trials - Talking to Sigmund

Swensen the Navigator

Swensen the Navigator chathead
The Fremennik Trials - Talking to Swensen

Talking to Swensen.

Talk to Chat head image of Swensen the Navigator, File:Swensen the Navigator chathead.pngSwensen in his house south-west of the longhall. Your task is to navigate your way through his maze of portals. You can enter the maze by going down the ladder in the south-west of his house. In each room of the maze, there are four portals: One on the north wall, one on the south wall, one on the east wall, and one on the west wall. One of the portals will take you to the next room. The other three will send you back to the start.

The trick is to spell his name. First, go in the South portal, then the West, then East, then North, then South, then East, and finally North again (SWENSEN). After you finish, talk to Swensen to get his vote.

Thorvald the Warrior

Thorvald the Warrior chathead

Items needed: None, but highly recommended to have some food, prayer potions, a god book, Rings of recoil, and Phoenix necklaces (if you have low Combat stats).

Koschei the deathless

Koschei the deathless

Chat head image of Thorvald the Warrior, File:Thorvald the Warrior chathead.pngThorvald lives in the helmet store. His task is for you to fight a special warrior called Chat head image of Koschei the deathless, File:Koschei the deathless chathead.pngKoschei the deathless. There are two rules:

  1. You must fight and defeat him 3 times. Every time he is defeated, he regains his health back and becomes much stronger. You only need to defeat Koschei for the first 3 rounds; if you die to him on the 4th round, you will pass Thorvald's trial.
  2. You cannot use any Link to weaponsweapons or Link to armourarmour or bring Link to runesrunes. However, you can use Link to foodfood, Prayer iconPrayer, any amulet, bracelet, Link to god bookgod books and Item image of Ring of recoil, File:Ring of recoil.pngrings of recoil.
  3. NOTE: Item image of Combat bracelet, File:Combat bracelet.pngCombat bracelet and Item image of Amulet of glory, File:Amulet of glory.pngAmulet of glory are allowed.
  4. NOTE: It is possible to flinch Koschei but not recommended due to the fact if you take too long to kill he will despawn and you will have to restart.

It is possible to glitch the fight if you die, and you come back quick enough it is possible to keep fighting him from the point at which you died, and ignore the second Thorvald that pops up.

Stock up on the food and potions, then proceed to head down to Thorvald's basement. Note that if you have completed the Link to Lost CityLost City quest, you can smuggle a Item image of dramen staff, File:dramen staff.pngdramen staff into the arena by taking a Item image of dramen branch, File:dramen branch.pngdramen branch, and a Item image of knife, File:knife.pngknife into the arena with you. When you enter the arena, Koschei is hidden. Simply roam around for a short while, and he will appear.

Koschei Final

Koschei's final form.

Koschei's first form is easy and should give you no problems. After you defeat him, he will regain all of his health and become stronger. There is no way to safe-spot him as you have no weapons, but you can trap him over the hole and wait a while for your health to regenerate. However, if you stay there too long, he'll disappear and reappear after you run around, back in his first form. His level is not displayed.

His second form might give you a bit of trouble, and you might need to use food or Prayer. Link to Combat purePures can't really beat this form unless they are Link to MeleeMelee pures.

His third form is fairly difficult, so you'll most likely need to use food and/or Prayer here. You may need a Prayer potion(1)prayer potion here as it is possible to run out of prayer points early. This is the last form required for you to defeat to complete the quest.

Koschei Defeats Player

The player is defeated by Koschei.

Warning: DO NOT LEAVE AFTER THE 3RD FIGHT. EITHER WIN THE 4TH FIGHT OR LET HIM WIN! (Leaving the arena during the 4th fight will result in your progress being reset, but his fourth form may roam the area when you return).

Note: If wearing a Item image of Ring of life, File:Ring of life.pngRing of Life, it is now safe to remove as you cannot die fighting his fourth form, you will be left at 1 hitpoint instead.

The fourth form is the hardest. He will hit about once every quarter second, but he usually hits one. It is recommended that the player use a Item image of Ring of recoil, File:Ring of recoil.pngRing of recoil, but be sure to bring enough rings for the fight (7 minimum) as the ring breaks after 40 hitpoints of damage, and Koschei has 255 HP in this form. In this form, Koschei will quickly drop your prayer points in intervals of 1-2 every second and will drop all of your prayer points as soon as the form starts.

Koschei will also attack extremely quickly, but will only have a max hit of 1. If you manage to beat Koschei in this form, you will be given a Item image of Fremennik blade, File:Fremennik blade.pngFremennik blade (which you can find elsewhere). Otherwise, when Koschei leaves you at 1 hitpoint, you will kneel on the ground and find yourself upstairs. Regardless, Thorvald will give you his vote for your bravery in fighting a superior foe.

Peer the Seer

Peer the Seer chathead

Chat head image of Peer the Seer, File:Peer the Seer chathead.pngPeer is found south of the market. He'll give you his vote if you can simply enter the front door to his house, and then come out the other side. This is more difficult than it seems because you cannot take any items in, and you will encounter many puzzles inside. You can deposit all your items by completing the dialogue after Peer introduces his trial.

Note: Because Peer will bank all of your items in your inventory, he should be done last to save a lot of time walking to and from the bank.

Entering the house
