Now you need to speak to five G.A.G. members. Any five Farming Patch Gardeners will do (see the Farming Patch guide for their locations), and once you speak to the fifth one, he or she will mention Fairies.
The first one will complain about the lack of rain.
The second one complains about insects.
The third one complains about adventurers.
The fourth farmer complains about out-of-whack seasons.
Farmer number 5 thinks the Fairies are to blame.
Now return to Martin the Master Farmer and tell him all of this. He will then send you to look for fairies, so head to Zanaris.
She will tell you about the illness of the Queen, and she needs your help with finding a cure. She will give you a list of what ails the Queen
and asks you to find Zandar Horfire.
Zandar Horfire is on the top floor of the Dark Wizard Tower west of Falador.
Talk to him and he will agree to help you but only if you bring him a Skull, a Draynor Skull.
You will find the Skull in a grave north of Draynor Manor, but within the fence surrounding it, north of the house. When you find the grave stand on top of it and dig. You will get a Skull in your inventory. Return to him and give him the Draynor Skull.
He will now tell you how to get the Enchanted Secateurs, the only weapon that will defeat Tanglefoot. He will tell you to have the nature spirit perform the Phasma Phasmatis Natura, and for this he will name 3 items you will need to bring. These are different for each player and if you forget what you need you can find it in your Quest Journal.
