|Release date||27 February 2002 (Update)|
|Start point||Outside the Heroes' Guild; north of Taverley. Speak with Achetties.|
|Description||Prove you are worthy to enter the Heroes' Guild. To prove your status as a hero you will need to obtain a number of items. There are many challenges standing between you and these items.|
|Enemies to defeat|
Talk to Achietties outside the Heroes' Guild about joining the guild. She will tell you that in order to get in you need to give her three items: a fire feather from an Entrana firebird, a cooked lava eel, and a Master Thieves' Armband.
Go to White Wolf Mountain (east of Catherby, west of Taverley). Enter the mountain at the south entrance, and walk or run north until you come to a rock slide. Use a pickaxe on the rock slide and go through it (this requires 50 Mining). Once you are through, you will be near level 57 ice warriors and three ladders.
Use the south ladder and go down the south-west tunnel. Go up the ladder just after the tunnel bends north. Once you go up, you will see level 53 ice giants there. Take the east ladder down. Go north through the long tunnel with level 61 ice spiders and ice giants (the spiders in the tunnel do not show up on mini-map). The tunnel makes a loop and ends at a ladder. Go up the ladder, then go down the other. Continue down the tunnel until it opens up into a large room full of ice warriors and the Ice Queen. Be careful because this is a multicombat area, so you will be attacked by multiple enemies at once!
If you stand behind the throne, you can avoid the ice warriors and can still attack the Ice Queen if positioned right. Kill her and she will drop the ice gloves. Once you have the gloves, exit using the same route back or teleport out.
Bank your weapons and armour, but keep your ice gloves. Head to Port Sarim and talk to the Monk of Entrana to travel to Entrana or teleport to Castle Wars and use the hot air balloon to go there. Go to the north-east part of the island to find the Entrana Firebird. Kill it and it will drop the fire feather. Make sure to have the ice gloves equipped before picking it up.
Cooked Lava EelEdit
Go to Port Sarim and talk to Gerrant at the Fishing Shop. He will give you a bottle of blamish snail slime. Once you have the items, make sure you have fishing bait in your inventory while doing this—use the Harralander with the vial of water and then the unfinished potion with the blamish snail slime. Right-click the blamish oil and use it on a normal fishing rod to get an oily fishing rod.
There are two different locations where you can catch lava eels: the Taverley Dungeon or the Wilderness Lava Maze. It takes somewhat longer to reach the lava eel fishing spot in Taverley Dungeon (if you don't have 70 Agility), but it's safer than travelling to levels 40-45 in the Wilderness to reach the Lava Maze.
Note that lava eels do not burn when cooked. Do not worry about obtaining multiple eels if you are worried about burning one.
Lava MazeItems needed: Knife or slashing weapon
WARNING: The Lava Maze is located in deep Wilderness. Beware of any player killers. You may likely lose any quest items you are carrying and may end up needing to gather the items to make another oily fishing rod. Make sure to bring some food in case someone does try to kill you.
If you're going to the fishing spot in the Lava Maze, there are several methods to reach there:
- The fastest way is to use the Ghorrock Teleport spell (or tablet) in the Ancient Magicks spellbook, although this requires completing the quest Desert Treasure.
- Use a Waka Canoe from Edgeville into the Wilderness. This requires 57 Woodcutting. From there, simply walk west to arrive near the entrance.
- Use the Wilderness obelisks to arrive in level 35 or 44 Wilderness. Either teleport will place you close to the entrance of the maze.
Make your way to the western area of the maze where there are trees and spider webs. Navigate the maze and travel past some aggressive black knights to the southern/middle section where the fishing area is. Once you have a lava eel, go back to the spider web to exit the maze. Cook the raw lava eel on a fire or a range (remember that you are not able to burn them).
Taverley DungeonItems required: Dusty key (if you don't have 70 Agility), anti-dragon shield or dragonfire shield (optional)
Bring your rod, bait, and other items. Teleport to Falador and walk west over the agility shortcut (requires 5 Agility) or teleport to your house if it is in Taverley..
If you don't have 70 Agility, follow the cyan path on the image to the right. Walk through the dungeon and use the dusty key on the door between the lesser demons and blue dragons. The fishing spot is near some baby blue dragons, from here catch a lava eel.
If you don't have the dusty key, go past the bridge, continue south-west past the hill giants, and you will enter a fortress with a few black knights. Go to the east into a jail, kill the jailer, and then pick up his key. Use it with the jail cell holding Velrak the explorer. Talk to him to get the dusty key. Head back north past the hill giants and follow the cyan path to the fishing spot. Use the key on the door between the lesser demons and blue dragons. The fishing spot is near some baby blue dragons, from here catch a lava eel.
Cook the raw lava eel on a fire or a range (remember that you are not able to burn them).
Master Thieves' ArmbandEdit
For this part of the quest, you will need the help of a player of the opposite gang. Players that have completed the quest may go back and help others.
Black Arm Gang Members EditItems needed: Black full helm, black platebody, black platelegsThe black full helm and black platelegs can be purchased from the Champions' Guild and the black platebody can be obtained from Horvik's Armour Shop in Varrock.
Go to Brimhaven and find the gang office, which is the building east of the bar. Talk to Trobert and he will give you some id papers which you will need to get into ScarFace Pete's mansion. Before going there, equip the black full helm, black platebody and black platelegs. When you try to enter ScarFace Pete's Mansion, you will be stopped by Garv. Show him the id papers and he will let you inside. Go talk to Grip inside and ask him if there is anything you can do and he will give you a miscellaneous key. Leave the building and give the key to your Phoenix Gang partner.
Go into the north-east room of the entrance. Wait for your partner to be on the other side of the wall (on the east side) and search the cupboard; Grip will then come into the room. Your Phoenix Gang partner will range and kill him. Take the key once he dies.
Using the key, go to the treasure room (the ground floor room with coins on the floor) and open the chest inside the first room to receive two candlesticks. Give one candlestick to your Phoenix Gang partner. Go back to Varrock and talk to Katrine. She will give you the Master thieves' armband.
NOTE: Be sure to pick up the candlesticks yourself; otherwise, Katrine will say you weren't the one to retrieve the candlestick and you will have to go back to do it all over again!)
Phoenix Gang Members Edit
Head to Varrock and speak to Straven at the hideout to get the password for Alfonse. Get a bow and arrows before heading to Brimhaven. First, get the miscellaneous key from your Black Arm Gang partner.
Go to The Shrimp and Parrot bar (not the southern bar) in Brimhaven. Once you are there, talk to Alfonse the waiter and then to Charlie the cook. Give them the password. Charlie the cook will tell you about secret wall that you are able to push. The push-able wall is in the kitchen, same place as where Charlie is, near where you will see some guard dogs.
Get past these and into the mansion by the west side door. Once inside, use the miscellaneous key on the north door. This brings you in a closet with a window into a room with a cupboard. Shoot through the hole in the wall at Grip and kill him with Ranged or Magic. He will drop the key for your Black Arm Gang partner.
Your Black Arm Gang partner will get two candlesticks and should trade you one of them. Go back to Varrock and talk to Straven to get the Master Thieves' Armband.
