|Description||Draynor Manor has a new resident and, adventurers rejoice, she is a damsel in distress. Far from being Sleeping Beauty, she finds the Manor's beds not to her liking and is suffering from insomniac nights. If you fancy yourself able to aid Ava in her search for a good night's sleep, who knows what the budding scientist will produce as a reward?|
|Length||Medium, long without necessary items|
|Enemies to defeat||None|
- Talk to Ava in the west wing of Draynor Manor. You have to search the bookshelf to open a secret door to get to her.
- You find out she is the new assistant of the professor at the top of the manor. After talking for a while, she says she will make you something if you get her some things. She will tell you she needs two undead chickens.
- Go to the undead chicken farm west of the Ectofuntus with your ghostspeak amulet and ecto-tokens, and talk to Alice.
- The easiest way to reach Alice is using an Ectophial to teleport to the Ectofuntus (after completing Ghosts Ahoy).
- If you have access to the Fairy rings, code a•l•q will take you to the eastern side of the Haunted Woods just south of the farm.
- If you've entered Morytania before, take the charter ships on the southern docks of Port Sarim to Port Phasmatys for 1300 coins.
- If you can't access any of the above, teleport to Varrock or use a Lumberyard teleport scroll and walk east past the Paterdomus
- Additionally, a Fenkenstrain's castle teleport tablet can be used to teleport to the castle just west of the farm.
- After finishing the conversation with Alice, talk to her husband located in the farm, near the undead cows. Keep on talking between Alice and her husband until you find out he wants to speak to her directly, but she cannot unless you get the Old Crone to make an amulet for the ghost of the farmer so that he can speak to her. Go to the crone, who is located in a small house on the east side of the Slayer Tower.
- After talking to her, she gives you a crone-made amulet. Give this to Alice's husband. Talk to him again and an amusing cutscene involving a fake player character named Cow31337Killer (31337 being eleet in leet speak). Finally, after Alice's husband has successfully caught some chickens, he will offer to sell them to you.
- Buy two chickens from Alice's husband for 20 ecto-tokens.
- Get 5 iron bars and a hammer; head back to Ava, and give her the undead chickens. She will now need a magnet; talk to the witch in the north-west corner of the house, and give her the 5 iron bars. She will give you a selected iron. She will give you instructions on how to turn the bar into a magnet.
- Teleport with your skills necklace (or teleport to home if your house is at Rimmington or teleport to Pest Control minigame and take ship to Port Sarim and run from there) to the crafting guild then run south east towards the center of the mine (north-east of Rimmington), and use a hammer on the bar while facing north to turn it into a magnet. If you are not facing north, it will not work.
- Give the magnet to Ava, and she will tell you her next request.
- You will also get 50xp in Crafting when you give Ava the magnet and you will get the message "Your work with the magnet increases your Crafting experience slightly."
Ava will now tell you she needs undead twigs from one of the undead trees around the manor. You will now need to cut one of Draynor's undead trees (not the normal dead trees that you can chop, but the type that attack you as you walk past).
- Try cutting an attacking tree; when this fails return to Ava and tell her. She will tell you to go see Turael, as he has been using the Slayer skill to figure out a way to defeat the undead trees.
- Talk to Turael in Burthorpe, and he will tell you that he will give you a blessed axe in exchange for a mithril axe and a holy symbol (Use the games necklace to teleport to Burthorpe). Supply him with these two things, and he will give you the blessed axe, which can be used to cut the undead trees.
- Go back to Draynor Manor, and chop an undead tree with the blessed axe. If successful, you will receive undead twigs. It is possible to fail at this if you do not have the proper Slayer level. If you do fail, simply click the tree again until you obtain the undead twigs.
- Give Ava the twigs, and she will tell you she has almost completed the invention she is preparing for you, but her notes need translating.
Translating the NotesEdit
You will now have to translate her research notes. See the picture to find out the combination. To change the colours of the buttons along the bottom, simply click on them.
- Once you have ungarbled the notes, talk to Ava, and she will tell you to combine a piece of hard leather and some polished buttons to finish the device.
- Combine the ungarbled notes with a piece of hard leather and some polished buttons to create a container (you can obtain polished buttons from the Grand Exchange or by pickpocketing H.A.M. Members).
- Give the container to Ava to complete the quest.
- 1 Quest point
- 1,000 Crafting, Fletching, and Slayer experience
- 2,500 Woodcutting experience
- Ava's device: Ava's attractor if Ranged level is less than 50 or Ava's accumulator if your Ranged is 50 or higher.
Note: As of 22 January 2015, Ava's accumulator now picks up all ammo regardless of being trapped behind an object.
