Quest Walkthrough

Getting Started

Map of Brimhaven

Firstly, talk to Kangai in the Shrimp and Parrot Pub in the center of Brimhaven, on Karamja Island. He will tell you that his totem was stolen by Lord Handlemort. Tell him that you'll help him get it back.

Map of East Ardougne

Now go to Ardougne by sailing from the Brimhaven Port, which can be found just north of the pub. It costs 30gp to take the boat from Brimhaven. Head to the mansion to the west of the marketplace in Ardougne (blue square), where you'll see some guard dogs and a Gardener. Talk to Horacio the Gardener and he'll tell you about the security system on the house. If you try to enter, you'll find that you are unable to go inside.

Go speak to Wizard Cromperty in his house in the northeast corner of the city (red rectangle). He will tell you of his newest discovery, teleportation between him and another point.

Wizard Cromperty: Ah! My latest invention is my patent pending teleportation block! It emits a low...

Ask him to teleport you and you'll be teleported inside of the RPDT Department's headquarters (green rectangle).

Label Search the crates until you find one that is going to be delivered to the mansion, and you'll receive a label. Use the label with the box that is being delivered to Wizard Cromperty's house and then ask the RPDT Employee to deliver the boxes.

There is a label on this crate: To Lord Handelmort, Handelmort Mansion, Ardougne

Guide book Head to a small house just south of the mansion and pick up the Guide Book. Read it and then go back to Wizard Cromperty.

Inside the Mansion

The mansion

Ask him to teleport you again and you'll now be in the mansion. Exit the room to the east and walk through one more door. Then pick the lock on the locked door to your right (not the front door) with the stairs inside and you'll need to enter the password, which is K U R T.

Enter the password: K U R T

The door will open. Search for the traps on the stairs by right-clicking them and selecting theĀ investigate option and then climb up.

The chest where the totem is

Congratulations! You have completed the Tribal Totem Quest!
