Scroll down for the walkthrough for this quest..


Firstly: Get the Pendant of Lucien and go to the dungeon north-east of Ardougne.
Enter the dungeon: Head west and you’ll see some stairs leading off to an area that is completely black. Go in. If you have the candle with you, the room will be lit up. If not, it will be black and dark.
Boots of Lightness: Slash the web in front of the only red dot in the room and take the boots. These boots take away 4kg from your weight and are very useful.
Room of Fear: As you go back up the stairs, put on your Pendant of Lucien and try to open the gate to the north. If you don’t have it on, you will jump back in fear. If not, you will enter a room with level 45 skeletons.
Lever: Head to the bridge to your west. Put on your boots and make sure your weight is 0kg or less; cross over and take the lever piece.
Traps: Cross over the bridge to the main area and head north. You will see a lever above a trap door. Search the trap door for traps and disable them. Then pull the lever.
Second lever: Go to the entrance room and search around for the lever bracket. Use your lever piece with it and pull. Then head through the south gate.
Ice arrows: Walk along the path fighting (or avoiding) the ice spiders (level 61) until you see jutting areas with chests. Search the chests for ice arrows and gather as many as you can. If you have searched all of them, go back and search them again. You need about 20-25 to kill the next monster. Head back to the area by the first lever after you finish.
Fire warrior: Go to the rocks with broken arrows around it and enter that door. Open the opposite door and the Fire Warrior will pop up. Equip the ice arrows and shoot him until he dies. (Note: He is a mage, so protect from magic helps a lot). After he dies, the door you tried to open will let you pass.
The lava: As you notice, there is lava blocking your path. Talk to Winelda and give her the 20 limpwurt roots; she will pass you over the fire.
Shiny key: Run through the area, past the ladder and past the odd wall to the very end and get the key. Run back to the wall and push on it. Here you have a choice in how you choose to finish. However, the reward is not changed.
GOOD SIDE: Take off your Pendant of Lucian and talk to the guardians. Tell them that you are after the staff because Lucian sent you and that you need a bath. They clean you and ask you to side with them. If you do, they will give you the Pendant of Armadyl. It will allow you to attack Lucian.
Put it on, and climb the ladder and exit.
BAD SIDE: Take the staff and exit. You may have to fight the guardians if you walk back through the wall.
Lucian: Go north of Varrock; you will find a lone house. Enter it and kill Lucian or give him the staff.
