The Event

Shanty ClawsTake a boat to Karamja and go to the Musa Point docks. There you will find the one and only, broad Shanty Claws. He is not in his regular act though, he seems to be mad. He will give a descriptive rundown of what has happened, in his own unique way... He says that the Gublinch have stolen three Karamjan Children! They are in a cave, to be protected from the snow they hate. You are to get snowballs, turn them into pieces of rocks, and insert them into the cages.

Shanty Claws

To get the snowballs, go southwest of Shanty Claws to a snowy area. Their will be little hills of snow, click on it to collect snowballs.

Snowball piles

You will get 3 snowballs for each grab. Also, get at least 30-35 snowballs just incase you miss.

The entrance to the cavern

After you have done that go down the cave entrance to the Gublinch's lair. Here's a map of the lair's location:

A gublinch!After that, you will enter the cave and see them. You will see the children working. Yes a sad sight, but that's why you are there, to help! Continue to get the shards, throw the snowballs you got from above. At first you might miss but your character will keep trying. It takes 3 hits to kill every Gublinch. After every hit, the monster will turn a different shade, until it dies.

Note: When throwing snowballs, if another character throws his/her's and it falls, yours is not affected.

Here is a map of the dungeon in which the Gublinches roam:
