Quest Walkthrough

Getting Started

To begin the quest, head to the town of Canifis, which is in Morytania. Go into the Hair of the Dog Tavern and speak to Vanstrom Klause, who is standing in the corner near the staircase.

Talk to Vanstrom Klause to start the In Search of the Myreque quest

After he tells you that his friends need help, ask him what he needs help with. Vanstrom will tell you that they are short of weapons and that he needs you to deliver. Tell him you'll help him out, and ask him where the weapons need to be delivered. He'll mention a boatman down in Mort'ton that could help you out if you persuade him. Say yes to his offer and you've started the quest!

Vanstrom Klause: That's great news my friend, really great news!

The Hollows

Now you're going to have to journey to Mort'ton. Make sure your druid pouch has several charges, because you need at least 5 at Mort'ton and Ghasts will take some on the way. Make sure you have all the required items, as it will save a lot of time. Enter the Mort Myre Swamp, and run south. Keep going south until you pass the Nature Altar and find a dirt path. Follow the dirt path which snakes around until you get to Mort'ton. Here's a visual guide to getting there:

Walk to the center of the town, and be on the lookout for any Loar Shadows that may attack you. They don't hit often, so you shouldn't have a problem. Once you're at the center, walk east until you find Cyreg Paddlehorn. If you don't have all the weapons, you will not be able to initiate the proper conversation. Once you see him,talk to him about giving the Myreque weapons, and he'll refuse. Follow this conversation path to convince him to help you:

<You>: Well, I guess they’ll just die without weapons.
<You>: Resourceful enough to get their own steel weapons?
<You>: If you don’t tell me, their deaths are on your head!
<You>: What kind of a man are you to say that you don’t care?

Cyreg will then back down. Before he lets you use his boat, he'll ask for a druid pouch with at least 5 charges in it, otherwise he won't let you use his boat. You'll also need six planks, your steel nails, and a hammer. Cyreg will ask for 3 planks before getting on the boat, give it to him and you're on your way!

Once you land in The Hollows, walk northwards until you find a rope bridge. Climb the tree to get on it. Once you are on the bridge, repair it by right clicking on certain parts as you walk along and your character will use the materials to fix it.

Once you are off the bridge walk a few steps north towards Curpile FyodTalk to him, tell him that you have come to help the Myreque with a delivery of weapons. He'll make sure you're not planning against the Myreque with a short three question quiz. Here are the answers to all the questions you can get.

Who is the youngest member of the Myreque?
Ivan Strom
What member of the Myreque was originally a scholar?
Polmafi Ferdygris
What family is rumoured to rule Morytania?
What is the boatman's name?
Cyreg Paddlehorn
Who is the leader of the Myreque?
Veliaf Hurtz
Name the only female member in the Myreque.
Sani Piliu
What does Myreque mean?
Hidden in Myre

Vanstrom's Pet

Once you pass the quiz, walk past Curpile to the other side of the mound and open the wooden doors. Walk through the cave into an outcrop on the eastern wall. Squeeze past the stalagmite and you'll find the members of the Myreque. Talk to Veliaf Hurtz (you don't need to explore all the conversation options). Introduce to yourself to all the other members of the Myreque. You don't need to go through every conversation path, just saying “Ok, thanks” and then talking to the next person works. Once you've introduced yourself to everyone, be prepared for a fight, and talk to Veliaf once more.

Veliaf Hurtz: Hey, what's that mist coming in through the door?

A cutscene will start. Some mist will enter the room and Veliaf will realize that a Vampyre has entered. The Vampyre reveals himself to be Vanstrom, who says that your character led him straight to the Myreque. Vanstrom kills Sani and Harold, and then sprouts his wings and flies away.

Vanstrom leaves his Skeleton Hellhound to attack you. It's level 64, so using the Protect From Melee Prayer helps greatly. If you are using Ranged or Magic, you can run behind a rock and use it as a safespot. The Hellhound is an easy fight, and should die quickly. Once he dies, he will drop four Big Bones and two Uncut Rubies.

Completing the Quest

Once you've killed the Hellhound, talk to Veliaf and ask him how to get out. He'll tell you about a moveable wall that can lead you back to Canifis. Go back into the main tunnel and travel to the north end. Search the wall to walk through it and then go up one of the ladders and you'll find yourself in Canifis.

Now go back into the Hair of the Dog Tavern. Talk to the Stranger who is standing in the exact same place that Vanstrom was at the beginning of the quest. Once you have finished your conversation the quest will end.

Congratulations! Quest complete!
