The three trackersHead north to the southern edge of the battlefield and speak with Commander Montai, who is wearing red clothing. He will ask for you to get 6 logs to repair their defenses. Supply him with the logs and he'll tell you that three trackers that have been sent out to retrieve coordinates to fire the ballista have not returned. He asks you to find them.
- The first tracker is towards the north-west of the Khazard stronghold.
- The second tracker is in a building towards the east side of the stronghold.
- The third tracker is at the south-west corner of the stronghold.
The first two trackers will give you the coordinates you need, which you'll automatically commit to memory. The third tracker, however, has been driven mad as a result of the chaos. Though most of what he says is garbage, he will give you a hint as to the number you need. You may have to do a bit of guesswork, though. For instance, "Less than my hands" would equal 1, where "More than my head" could be 2, "More than we but less than our feet" is 3, and lastly, "My legs and your legs" is 4.
Head back to the ballista, which is located in the south-west corner of the battlefield and you'll be given a chance to enter the third coordinate. It will be a number between 1 and 4. If you miss, just try again until you get it.
Once you get a hit, walk to the stronghold and climb over the wall that is now mostly destroyed. When you do, you will be attacked by a level 48 Khazard Commander. Climb the ladder and another one will attack you. You will then be able to find the missing orb of protection inside.
Return to the Tree Gnome Village and talk to Elkoy to be sent to the centre. King Bolren will then tell you that the other two orbs of protection have been stolen by the Khazard Warlord. It's possible to lure him by working the nearby trees and employing a hit-and-run tactic.
Exit the village and start heading to north-west, past the wolves to the south edge of West Ardougne. Talk to the Warlord and kill him to retrieve the other two orbs. Head back to the Village and return them to King Bolren to complete the quest.
