-------------------

Getting Started

 

Head to Oo'glog, south of the Hunter area in the Feldip Hills. Once there talk to Chief Tess.

 

afsmap.png

She will say that they are not open yet, and that the bossy human in the bank will say when they open. Ask her what is going on, and she will explain that the human came to Oo'glog and started asking many questions. Chief Tess agreed to help her in her 'business venture'. Talk to Tess again about the 'business venture', Tess will explain that they were promised 'shiny pretties' to let other creatures bathe in the mud around their camp. Ask if you can help, and she will ask you to talk to the lady in the bank, Balnea.

Talk to her, and she will rejoice in seeing another human.

Ask her whats going on and she will use a lot of big words that will confuse your character. She seems distressed, so ask her whats wrong. She will say they don't have enough human resources to start the business. She has obtained ogre resources, but it isn't going so well. She will offer you to help her with the resort. Agree, and she will tell you that she tried to help her father expand his bar in Yanille. When it wouldn't work and she got overstressed, she left on a hunter vacation. When she discovered Oo'glog she was amazed at what the hot springs could do, and wanted to open a resort. However, the ogres aren't cooperating. She will ask you if you can help while she teaches the ogres how to be proper bankers. Agree and she will ask you to help her establish the catering facilities. Some, very basic catering services. She will want you to help the ogre chef with a spit roast. Agree to help Chargurr with cooking.

 

Head north of the bank, and talk to Chargurr.

 

chargurrpicforsalsguiderm7.png

 

eucalyptuslog.gifShe needs a big fire for the spit roast, unfortunately it needs to be big. Bring her 8 Achey tree Logs, and 10 Eucalyptus logs. Achey Trees can be found all over the feldip hills. Eucalyptus trees can be found outside Oo'glog.

Bring these to her and you will put them in the fire pit. Now she needs 4 spears of any kind. Note: The spears cannot be poisoned. Who would want to eat poisoned chompy? In order to get poison off of the spears, you need a cleaning cloth. You can get one by using Karamja Rum with Silk. Bring her these and then you will automatically use them on the achey trees next to the pit. Now bring her 2 raw chompy birds. You can get chompy birds the same way you got them in Big Chompy Bird Hunting. She will once again want you to put them on the fire pit. After that, light the fire with a tinderbox.

 

firepitforsalsguidegr3.png

 

Talk to Chargurr again, and she will say that Balnea has some more things for you to do. Go to her.

 

Now she needs you to talk to the hotel manager, Snurgh and help her sort out a problem she has.

 

Go East to the building closest to the ocean and talk to her.

 

snurghpicforsalsguidelb5.png

 

Snurgh will tell you that Balnea has requested that they need pillows for the hotel. Unfortunately, she used raw meat, the softest thing she knows. You suggest that she makes pillows out of feathers. She will ask you to bring her 8 stripy feathers. You can obtain Stripy feathers from Tropical Wagtails. Read the Hunter guide for info on catching them. It should only take 2 Tropical Wagtails to get enough feathers. Bring them Snurgh and head back to Balnea.

 

She needs you to head to the salon and talk to Kringk. Head to the building east of the bank and talk to her.

 

kringkforsalsguidejl4.png

 

She wants to know how you do hair with no tools. Tell her you'd be happy to get anything you need for her. She needs 4 wolf bones, and 8 Larupia Fur. The bones can be obtained by killing wolves. The fur you get from hunting Larupia. Look in the hunter guide for more info on catching Larupias. Any kind of Larupia fur is needed. Bring them to Kringk and go back to Balnea.

 

Now she needs you to talk to Seegud in a house northeast of the bank.

 

seegudpicforsalsguidejs3.png

 

She needs you help with the bug infestation. She tells you that you need to find a fire pit and burn things to make the smell the bugs hate. In order to find out the smell, she has laid stones near every fire pit. The stones differ in amounts and shapes, to tell you what to burn.

 

With every long brown rock, add a eucalyptus log to the pit. Every fire needs one.

 

fevergrass.gifWhen you see a green lumpy rock, add Fever Grass.fevergrasspatch.gif

 

primweed.gifWhen you see a round red rock, add Primweed.primweedpatch.gif

 

tansymum.gifWhen you see a yellow, egg shaped rock, add Tansymum.tansymumpatch.gif

 

stinkbloom.gifWhen you see an orange square rock, add Stinkbloom.stinkbloompatch.gif

 

lavender.gifWhen you see a tall purple rock, add Lavender.lavenderpatch.gif

 

All these items can be obtained from around Oo'glog. Look at the map above for the locations.

 

However, the little ogre children have mixed up the rocks, so you need to find out what rocks they moved where. Talk to the ogre children north of Seegud's house. They will help you with what plants go where. Remember, every fire requires Eucalyptus logs.

 

You need to try several combinations before you get it right. Write down what plant went where so you don't end up using the same plant over and over again. As a strategy it makes sense to start with the pool north east of Seegud's house and put the one item and log originally asked for, while having your inventory stocked with the other stuff in sets of four, and the rest eucalyptus logs. Then when you find it didn't work, you only wasted one log and item.

 

 

After clearing all the pools of bugs, talk to Seegud , then Balnea, then Chief Tess inorder to learn how to hunt in the village.

 

The chief explains how herbs can be used as bait and burned to lead each hunter animal. You use:

 

Lavender to lead and bait Platypodes, not Fever Grass (which causes them to attack and poison you) You need to catch all 4.

Tansymum to lead and bait Wimpy Birds , not Fever Grass, not Lavender (which causes them to peck you) You need to catch all 5.

Fever Grass to bait and lead Diseased Kebbits , not Tansymum (which makes them attack and disease you) You need to catch all 4.

 

When you catch all the Platypodes, head to the beach to the north-east. Once there, release the platypodes. They will each give you a casket or an oyster. Caskets carry a variety of items while oysters will give you pearls that you can make into pearl bolt-tips with a chisel.

 

After that, head back to Balnea, and watch the ensuing cutscene.

Talk to Balnea again and finally, Quest Complete!

Thanks for the corrections. I fixed them. If you could get me pictures of whatever you think should be in here, that would be grand.

Ty reaver. Does anyone know if the combos are random for everyone?

 

I believe so. I went to the greenish pool and determined (in order):

 

yellow - Fever Grass

red - Tansymum

green - Primweed

purple - Stinkbloom

orange - Lavender

 

As a strategy it makes sense to start with the greenish pool and put the one item and log originally asked for, while having your inventory stocked with the other stuff in sets of four, and the rest eucalyptus logs. Then when you find it didn't work, you only wasted one log and item.

 

------------------

 

After this point in the guide, you talk to Seegud , then Balnea, then the chief, then time to hunt in the village.

 

The chief explains how herbs can be used as bait and burned to lead each hunter animal. You need to trap 4 of each animal i believe. You use:

 

Lavender to lead and bait Platypus, not Fever Grass (which causes them to attack and poison you)

Tansymum to lead and bait Wimpy Birds , not Fever Grass, not Lavender (which causes them to peck you)

Fever Grass to bait and lead Diseased Kebbits , not Tansymum (which makes them attack and disease you)

Thanks, I added i'll add it to the guide in a sec.

 

Thanks - some self-corrections now that I reviewed and finished the quest

 

You need 5 of the wimpy birds, not 4.

 

The four platypus' you catch are uniquely named, and you need to release them by the reeds next to the water in the easternmost part of the town (just north of the dock).

-----------

 

Miscellaneous quest rewards:

 

You can trade diseased kebbit furs for a "Davy Kebbit cap". Not sure what it does if anything. Examine text "A furry hat with an unnerving tail".

 

Feathers from wimpy bird examine text "More fluff than feather". They can be used to fletch arrows like all other feathers from hunting. No idea if you can fish with them.

 

The spa pools each impart a benefit. The salty bath gives you full energy back. The hot bath immunizes disease. The muddy bath adds several temporary hunter levels (I went from 66 to 74). I dont recall trying the bandos bath, but fromthe name I am guessing temporary attack and/or strength bonus.

 

You are supposed to be able to trap a platypus outside the town as a pet, but I had no luck despite using burning lavender. They followed me and completely ignored the box traps. I saw no one succeeding.

One of the things you could add is that the ogre children help you identify the herbs used on the pools by telling you that they use the logs and one other herb, or whatever the case is, such as the first one I was told was the thermal pool and it required the logs and primweed, and then I asked one of the children what the next pool should be, and they stated that the mud pool requires the logs, primweed, and one other herb.

Burgh will tell you that Balnea has requested that they need pillows for the hotel. Unfortunatly, she used raw meat, the softest thing she knows. You suggest that she makes pillows out of feathers. She will ask you to bring her 8 stripy feathers. You can obtain Stripy fethers from a tropical wagtail. Read the Hunter guide for more info. Bring them to her and head back to Balnea.

 

the name is Snurgh, and an important note is that tatty fur and nice fur both count, so don't waste ur time getting 8 nice furs, and you only need to kill one or maybe 2 tropical wagtails to get the feathers u need

Upon actually completing the portion of the quest in which you must take care of the pest problem, I have come up with this (sorry about my terrible writing :) ):

 

afsconcept.png

 

 

It appears as though it is completely random for each person, and if it that is the case, anyone who is currently doing this portion could use a similar concept for doing it like I have done.

 

 

 

My original idea of speaking with the children is still true however, and is recommended, rather than just randomly trying each pool.

I would like to point out that "wagtail feathers" are called "stripy feathers" in the item requirements

if you looking for what the spas do here it is:

thermal bath: % of HP extra and full heal cures poi and diseise (went 87-104)

Sulpher spring: prayer healed and +8 above max or % (70-78 more logical being +8)

Mud bath: % of extra hunter lvls (went 50-57)

Salt-Water Spring:infinite run energy for a period of time (10min?)

Bandos pool:a bandos blessing (acts like a bandos items at God Wars?? yet to test and is it permenant?)

Lavender to lead and bait Platypus, not Fever Grass (which causes them to attack and poison you) You need to catch all 4.

 

One platypus, many platypodes. :D

 

Very interesting plural forms in the English language, no...?

 

I did the quest, went in the spa that restores energy, and ended up with unlimited energy. I've reported it, but until Jagex do anything I can run wherever the heck I want without ever getting tired. :hug:

I forgot to add that the pools have different effects. One of them gives you unlimited run for a while :D

 

And I know what plurals are thank you. Thanks for spotting it anyway.
