Getting Started

The queen's listFirstly, speak to Queen Ellamaria near the Castle of Varrock by heading around the back to find her. Agree to help her, and she'll tell you she wants to make the garden better, and she will give you a list of who to talk to, but first you must see the Wise Old Man in Draynor Village.

Items I need to get for King Roald's garden

Mysteries of Charos

Head to Draynor Village (use a Glory Amulet or lodestone teleport) and talk to the Wise Old Man. He will tell you to get a Ring Of Charos. You should have gotten one after completing the Creature of Fenkenstrain Quest, but if you lost it you can pickpocket Fenkenstrain to get another. The old man will check that you are a good Diplomat by asking you 7 questions.

Ellamaria? Well, if you're in her service my guidance is this...

Note: Although the questions and answers are always the same, the order in which the answers are displayed are random. So, sometimes "A" will be "B."

Question: Two goblins are fighting over the colour of their armour. What do you do?

Answer: Show them a range of colours so that they can come to a compromise.

Question: A drunken dwarf offers you a kebab. What do you do?

Answer: Take his generous gift even though you have no need for it.

Question: Are you enjoying your experience of Farming?

Answer: It's absolutely, unquestionably the most interesting thing I've ever done!

Question: A dwarf asks you to put on a silly golden helmet so that you can be fired from a cannon into a wall. What do you do?

Answer: Put on the silly helmet and jump into the cannon.

Question: You meet Pkmaster0036 in the wilderness who asks you who is the greatest player killer in the world. How do you answer?

Answer: I am, prepare to meet your doom Pkmaster0036!

Question: Queen Ellamaria orders you to go on a foolish quest without any offer of a reward. What do you say?

Answer: Ask me nicely and I might consider it.

Question: A draynor bank guard asks you if you've seen any suspicious characters lately, because the bank has been robbed. What do you say?

Answer: No, especially not that wise old man, who doesn't look at all suspicious.

Once you've answered his questions, he will turn your Ring of Charos into a Ring Of Charos (a).

Ring of charos

Delphinium Seeds

After that, walk or teleport to Falador, and talk to Elstan who is at the farm south of the city, and ask him for some Delphinium Seeds. Use the charm of the ring to persuade him into giving you the seeds. Even though its tempting, do not click the "Somebody kill me now" option.

Elstan

Delphinium seedsHe will ask you to grow some Marigolds (agree to do this, as the charm won't work any further). Once you have the Marigolds, talk to him again and he'll give you 4 Delphinium Seeds.

Orchid Seeds

Orchid seedsNow head to Port Phasmatys using either the Ectophial or walking. At the farm west of the port, talk to Lyra using the charm of the ring, and she will agree to give you the Orchid Seeds if you plant some Onions in one of the patches. Grow the Onions until they are fully grown (see the Farming Guide), and she will give you some Orchid Seeds.

Lyra

Snowdrop Seeds

Snowdrop seedsTo continue, teleport or walk to Ardougne and head northeast to the farm, and talk to Kragen. Use your charm on him again, and he'll tell you to grow some Cabbages, and once they're grown, talk to Kragen. He will give you some Snowdrop Seeds.

Kragen

Burthorpe Vine

Lodestone teleport to Taverly and talk to Bernald in the garden of the Pick and Lute pub in southwestern Taverly. Charm him with the ring when necessary. Now use a Plant Cure on the vine. You will receive the message that nothing happens. Talk to Bernald again and he'll recommend you talk to Alain.

Bernald

Strong plant cureNear the gate that separates Taverley and Falador, there is a Farming Patch. Talk to Alain (don't use the charm on him), and he'll tell you how to make a stronger Plant Cure potion. Now use a chisel with the Rune Essence, then a Pestle and Mortar with the remains, and use the ground rune with a Plant Cure. You will now have a stronger Plant Cure!

Alain

Vine seedHead back to the vines in Burthorpe and use the cure on them, and then talk to Bernald. Congratulations, you now have the Vine Seeds!

Vines

Rosebushes

Rose seedsTry to take the seeds out of one of the roses from the Monastery, and a monk will stop you. He will tell you to destroy the dark object. Instead of destroying it, head over to Edgeville and throw it down the Well. Now try again and he'll tell you that you may take the seeds. Take seeds out of each of the colored Rosebushes to get some Pink, Red and White seeds.

Rose bushes

Now to retrieve your Ring of Charos (a) from the well, simply use a Fishing Rod with the Edgeville Well.

White Tree

Now go to the farm in Catherby and speak to Dantaera, and use the ring's charm on her. She will tell you that there is one last white tree on Ice Mountain.

White shoot

Make your way to Ice Mountain, either by walking from Catherby, using the Falador lodestone teleport, or using the Edgeville lodestone teleport and walking from there. Near the Oracle from the Dragon Slayer Quest Quest, there will be a white tree. Click on the tree and use the secateur option to obtain the white tree shoot.

White tree

Statue From Falador

TrolleyTeleport or walk to Varrock and ask the Queen how to move the Statues. She will give you a Trolley. Now head to Falador and use the Trolley with the Statue of Saradomin in the center of the town. You will see an odd cutscene about the guards discussing what they are going to do on the weekend, and then a player comes along and kills them.

Next, you must move the statue to the Falador guards, then you will end up near the Queen. Push the statue to the most southern Statue Base and put it down.

Put the statue on this plinth

Statue From Lumbridge

Do exactly the same as above, except with the King's Statue in Lumbridge, and push it over the bridge.

Completing the Quest

Bank any unneeded items (such as teleport runes, empty vials, etc.) and head to the Queen. Use a bucket of Compost with each of the orchid pots and plant all the seeds in their respective patches (rake them first). The patches do not require any compost or watering.

Use the White Tree Shoot with the plantpot in your inventory and be sure to water it. Please note that the White Tree takes awhile to grow. Once they are all fully grown, talk to the Queen, and she'll check the plants.

What a beautiful garden!

Once she has checked them, she'll tell you to tell Roald. Go into the castle, and tell him to follow you (use the ring). You will see a short cutscene in which Roald will get slapped in the face by his wife. After the cutscene...

Quest Complete!

Congratulations! You have completed the Garden of Tranquility Quest!
