Quest Walkthrough

Getting Started

HassanTalk to Hassan in the Warrior Castle, located in Al Kharid. Ask him if he needs any help, and it turns out that he actually does, and that Osman can fill you in on the details. Usually he can be found wandering around just outside the castle. When you speak to Osman, he tells you that Prince Ali is being held captive by Lady Keli, and that you need a plan to get him out.

Osman says that you need to tie Lady Keli up, and that you must disguise the prince as her by getting a skirt, a blonde wig and something to color his skin. His daughter Leela may be able to help you out, and she can be found near Draynor Village, standing next to the wheat fields.

Leela tells you more about a disguise, mentioning a woolen wig, a rope, and a witch that may be able to help with the coloring part. She says that you will also need a key, and that something must be done about the guard.

The Rope & Wig

RopeTalk to Ned, a nice old man that can be found a short distance from Leela. Tell him that you need rope, and he says that he will sell you some for 15gp, or he will make you some for just 4 balls of wool. If you don't want to pay, you can shear some sheep by using a pair of shears with a wooly Sheep.

WigAs for the wig, Ned can make you one for 3 balls of wool. Just ask him what else he can make, and then tell him that you need a wig. So, it would be best to get 7 pieces of wool and then spin them on a spinning wheel so that Ned can make you both a Rope and Wig.

Wig & Skin Colouring

Back in Draynor Village, you can find a witch named Aggie. She knows about making dyes and skin coloring, so ask her if she can make you some Yellow Dye for the wig. For this, she needs 2 onions and 5gp. Onions can be found in a garden just east of Rimmington, or behind the Farmer's house in Lumbridge, near the windmill. After having the dye made, use it with the wig to make it a Blonde Wigblonde Wig.

Skin PasteYou can also ask Aggie to make some Skin Paste, which changes the color of skin. She needs some ashes, flour, water and red berries to make this. Red berries can be found east of the Stone Circle near Varrock.

Tip: A pink skirt can be bought from the Varrock Clothes Shop for 2gp, so to avoid an extra trip, buy one while you're collecting red berries.

The Jail Key

First, make some Soft Clay by using some water with clay, which can be mined. You can also mine a tin and copper ore and smelt them into a bronze bar. Head over to the jail, located just east of the Draynor Market bank, and speak with Lady Keli.

Key ImprintYou can choose any option except for the one about Katrine being better than her. Ask her about her plan, and then ask her if she can be sure that they won't try to get the Prince out of jail. Ask her to see the key, and then ask her if you can see it. Your character will put some clay in their hand and make an imprint of the key.

Bronze KeyNow bring the imprint and a bronze bar to Osman and he will make you a bronze key, but you need to get it from Leela. She tells you that there's a guard inside the jail that will be a bit of trouble. After speaking with Joe, you learn that he likes to drink. Speak with Leela again, who says that 3 beers should be enough to get him drunk. You can buy beers from the Port Sarim pub, or take them off the tables in the Barbarian Village.

Rescuing the Prince

Go back to the jail, speak with Joe and ask him if he wants a drink. He'll take a beer, and then you should give him the rest to finish him off. Now use your rope with Lady Keli to tie her up, and use the key with the cell door. Speak with Ali to disguise him, and then go back to Hassan in Al Kharid to get your reward.

Congratulations, Prine Ali Rescue Quest complete!
