Fairy ring code ciq is also near Yanille.
  • Go to the Link to Dragon Inn Dragon Inn, and use the Item image of %7B%7B%3ADragon+inn+tankard%7D%7D, File:Dragon inn tankard.png tankard on the bartender. The bartender will explain that the tankard belonged to Link to Brentle Vahn Brentle Vahn, a not-so-moral customer who had been seen with a shady wizard.
  • Talk to Chat head image of Zavistic Rarve, File:Zavistic Rarve chathead.png Zavistic Rarve in the Link to Wizards' Guild Wizards' Guild. If you don't have the required level to enter the guild, ring the front bell and Rarve will appear outside. After seeing the Item image of %7B%7B%3ABlack+prism%7D%7D, File:Black prism.png prism and Item image of %7B%7B%3Atorn+page%7D%7D, File:torn page.png torn page, Rarve will tell you to talk to Chat head image of Sithik Ints, File:Sithik Ints chathead.png Sithik Ints in the guest house north of the guild.

Incriminating Sithik

Proceed to the guest house, which is directly north of the Link to Wizards' Guild Magic Guild, and then go to the top floor. Chat head image of Sithik Ints, File:Sithik Ints chathead.png Sithik is in the western most room (in the bed, does not appear as yellow dot on the minimap).

Talk to him, and he will deny any connection to Zogre Zogres. When you raise allegations, Sithik will challenge you to prove he is guilty.

Search the drawers, the cupboard and the wardrobe in Sithiks room. You will find a Item image of %7B%7B%3ABook+of+portraiture%7D%7D, File:Book of portraiture.png Book of portraiture, a Item image of %7B%7B%3ANecromancy+book%7D%7D, File:Necromancy book.png Necromancy book, Item image of %7B%7B%3Apapyrus%7D%7D, File:papyrus.png papyrus and Item image of %7B%7B%3Acharcoal%7D%7D, File:charcoal.png charcoal, and a Item image of %7B%7B%3ABook+of+%27h.a.m%27%7D%7D, File:Book of 'h.a.m'.png Book of 'h.a.m'. Read all three books.

Use the Book of Portraiture on Sithik. He will recommend trying portraiture for yourself. Draw a portrait of Sithik by using the papyrus on him. He will admire either the 'truth' or the 'honesty' of your completed portrait:

If he likes the 'truth' of the portrait, you will need to drop it and make a new one. You can grab another papyrus from the drawers. If he likes the 'honesty' of the portrait, keep it.

The two portraits won't appear the same in the inventory and the correct one, when examined, will read "A classic realist charcoal portrait of Sithik."

Zogre Flesh Eaters interrogating Sithik

Sithik is turned into an ogre.

Take the portrait and the Item image of %7B%7B%3ADragon+inn+tankard%7D%7D, File:Dragon inn tankard.png tankard back to the bartender. The bartender will recognise Sithik as the wizard seen with Link to Brentle Vahn Brentle, and will sign the portrait as an affidavit. Go back to the Magic Guild and use the Necromancy book, the Book of 'h.a.m.', the tankard, and the signed portrait on Chat head image of Zavistic Rarve, File:Zavistic Rarve chathead.png Zavistic Rarve. This will be enough evidence for Rarve to give you a Item image of %7B%7B%3AStrange+potion%7D%7D, File:Strange potion.png Strange potion, which he will instruct you to use on Sithik.

Use the potion on the Item image of %7B%7B%3Acup+of+tea%7D%7D, File:cup of tea.png cup of tea on top of Sithik's dresser. Go down the ladder and back up to Sithik and you will find that he has turned into an Ogre ogre.

Talk to Sithik, and he will confess. Obtain answers to all three questions in order to make Relicym's balm(1) Relicym's balm and Link to brutal arrows brutal arrows.

Making or buying Relicym's balm

After Chat head image of Sithik Ints, File:Sithik Ints chathead.png Sithik Ints has revealed the secret to making Relicym's balm(1) Relicym's balm, having it on hand in the final fight will help tremendously. It is your choice to obtain this now; however, the quest can be done without it. The balm is also tradeable.

Relicym's balm is made by using a Item image of %7B%7B%3ARogue%27s+purse%7D%7D, File:Rogue's purse.png Rogue's purse on a Item image of %7B%7B%3Avial+of+water%7D%7D, File:vial of water.png vial of water and then adding Item image of %7B%7B%3Asnake+weed%7D%7D, File:snake weed.png snake weed. Due to the time taken to get the ingredients (both are non-tradeable), some players may find it easier to purchase a Relicym's balm from the Link to Grand Exchange Grand Exchange.

It is HIGHLY recommended to make one and give it to Chat head image of Uglug Nar, File:Uglug Nar chathead.png Uglug Nar, who is near the area in the start of the quest. This will give access to a store selling 100 Relicym's balm (3), and he will give you enough money (650gp) to buy three of them back. The store also has 100 Item image of %7B%7B%3AAchey+tree+logs%7D%7D, File:Achey tree logs.png Achey logs, 10 Item image of %7B%7B%3Abow+string%7D%7D, File:bow string.png bow strings, 10 Item image of %7B%7B%3Acooked+chompy%7D%7D, File:cooked chompy.png cooked chompy, and five Item image of %7B%7B%3AKnife%7D%7D, File:Knife.png knives in stock.

Making brutal arrows

Link to Brutal arrows Brutal arrows are the best way to kill Zogre Zogres, and shooting them from a Item image of %7B%7B%3AComp+ogre+bow%7D%7D, File:Comp ogre bow.png composite ogre bow is the best strategy in the final fight. It is your choice to obtain them; however, the quest can be done without it. The easiest way to obtain them will be from the Link to Grand Exchange Grand Exchange, as both the brutal arrows and the composite ogre bow are tradeable.

To make the composite ogre bow, use a knife on Item image of %7B%7B%3AAchey+tree+logs%7D%7D, File:Achey tree logs.png Achey tree logs with some Item image of %7B%7B%3Awolf+bones%7D%7D, File:wolf bones.png wolf bones in the inventory. Use a Item image of %7B%7B%3Abow+string%7D%7D, File:bow string.png bow string on the unstrung bow to complete the bow (requires 30 Skill icon of Fletching, File:Fletching icon.png Fletching).

To make the arrows, use a knife on Achey tree logs and fletch them into Ogre arrow shaft 1 ogre arrow shafts (each log will give 2-6 shafts). Add Item image of %7B%7B%3AFeather%7D%7D, File:Feather.png feathers to the shafts (each shaft needs 4 feathers). Finally, use Link to nails nails (made of any Link to metal metal) on the Flighted ogre arrow 1 flighted ogre arrow while having a Item image of %7B%7B%3Ahammer%7D%7D, File:hammer.png hammer in your inventory.

Relocating the ceremonial grounds

Recommended: Food, armour (Ranged armour is preferred), Relicym's balm, and a composite ogre bow and brutal arrows. Crumble Undead can also be used instead.

Return to Chat head image of Grish, File:Grish chathead.png Grish and tell him what Chat head image of Sithik Ints, File:Sithik Ints chathead.png Sithik told you. Go through all available conversation options. After this he will give you a Item image of %7B%7B%3AOgre+gate+key%7D%7D, File:Ogre gate key.png key which will give access to the ceremonial chamber to look for some 'old' items for him. However, you will end up finding a Zogre guarding the artifacts named Slash Bash Slash Bash. Slash Bash is weak to brutal arrows and the Link to Crumble Undead Crumble Undead spell. Other attacks, such as melee, are not effective as they will only hit up to 25% of the normal max hit. He also drains Skill icon of Prayer, File:Prayer icon.png Prayer rapidly. Prepare accordingly, and don't forget to bring a Relicym's balm to remove Link to disease disease.

Return to the cave beyond the barricade and head west. There will be two successive locked doors, proceed through both of these and descend the stairs. Continue to the end of this long, wide room. Searching the stand will spawn the boss.

Slash Bash

Zogre Flesh Eaters fighting slash bash

Attacking Slash Bash from a distance.

A level 111 Zogre named Slash Bash Slash Bash will attack you. The boss can be safespotted, however you can still be attacked by his range attacks. Use the Link to safe spot safe spot (pictured right) and kill the Zogre while having on Link to Protect from Missiles Protect from Ranged. It is possible to use melee on the boss, however it will require using more resources and time since the damage is reduced against him.

It is possible to take too long to kill him, in which case he says something about growing weary of the fight and that he is awaiting a real challenge. You will have to start the fight over if this happens.

After Slash Bash is defeated, collect the bones and the artifact that he drops.

Return to Grish for your reward.

Congratulations! Quest complete!
