Walkthrough[edit | edit source]
Getting started[edit | edit source]
Start by talking to Achetties standing outside the Hero's Guild north of Taverley. To enter she'll tell you that you'll need to collect three items: a Firebird Feather, a cooked Lava eel and a Master thief armband. You can obtain these three items in any order.
Firebirds Feather[edit | edit source]
To collect a Firebird Feather, you'll need to kill the Entrana Fire Bird on Entrana and pick up the feather it drops while wielding the Ice gloves. To obtain a pair of Ice gloves, the Ice Queen must be killed. You'll need to navigate through the Ice Queen Maze (instructions for completing the maze are on the Ice Queen Maze page), which will then lead you to the level 103 Ice Queen.
Cooked Lava Eel[edit | edit source]
To obtain an Oily fishing rod, talk to Gerrant at Port Sarim in his fishing shop (Gerrant's Fishy Business) about catching a Lava eel. He'll give you Blamish snail slime which you can use on an unfinished Harralander potion (Requires 25 Herblaw) The resulting mixture, Blamish oil, can now be used on an ordinary Fishing rod to make it an Oily fishing rod.
To obtain a Cooked Lava eel, you'll need to catch a Raw lava eel in the Taverley dungeon directly south of the Blue Dragon room. You will need a dusty key to access this chamber, and some players may want to bring their anti dragon breath shield to use while they pass the Blue Dragon. To catch the Eel you'll need to use an Oily fishing rod and fishing bait. It's recommended to catch 2-3 Eels in case you burn one when cooking it. Alternatively, you can bring regular logs and a tinderbox, and cook at the fishing spot until you have a cooked Lava eel.
Remember to take at least 3 pieces of Fishing bait and the Oily fishing rod, armour and food to protect yourself from Poison Scorpions, chaos dwarves, Lesser demons, Baby Blue Dragons, Black Demons and Blue Dragons.
If you need instructions on how to get into the Blue dragons room, read the Taverley dungeon page.
Master Thieves Armband[edit | edit source]
Black Arm Gang members[edit | edit source]
Speak to Katrine in the Black Arm Gang's headquarters about becoming a master thief. She'll ask you to steal Scarface Pete's Candlestick from his mansion in Brimhaven but to first visit the Black Arm base on Palm Street in Brimhaven with the password (four leaved clover). Once inside speak to Trobert about the candlestick. He'll tell you that the head guard of the mansion, Grip is employing a new security guard, an ex-Black Knight named Hartigan. After receiving the stolen ID Paper you must impersonate Hartigen by wearing a Black full helmet, Black platebody and Black platelegs. (The helm and legs may be purchased in the Champion's Guild and the body in Horvik's Armour Shop in Varrock.) After infiltrating the mansion and presenting your ID to Grip, ask about your duties and what you could do for him now. He'll give you a Miscellaneous key for which he doesn't know the use. Trade this to your Phoenix Gang partner player. Once your partner has infiltrated the side entrance, lure Grip into the back room by snooping in his alcohol cupboard. Your partner will take this chance to kill Grip by ranging through the window. Take his dropped keys when he dies and unlock the treasure room. You'll find two candlesticks in the chest, one of which you should trade to your partner. Return to Katrine with your candlestick and she'll be impressed enough with you that she'll award you the Master thief armband.
Phoenix Gang members[edit | edit source]
Head to Varrock and talk to the gang leader, Straven. He'll tell you that in order for you to receive the armband you'll need to steal a candlestick from ScarFace Pete who lives in the Brimhaven mansion. He tells you that there are two associates on Brimhaven who you should contact using the password "gherkin": Charlie the cook and Alfonse the waiter.
Travel to Brimhaven with a a ranged weapon or runes and magic to kill Grip with. The highest type of bow you can wield and at least 50-100 arrows are recommended. Talk to Alfonse the waiter and ask him about gherkins and he'll let you go through the door. Talk to Charlie the Cook and tell him you're looking for a gherkin and that you want to steal candlesticks. Now get a Miscellaneous key from your Black arm partner and then travel back to the room with the cook. Push the Strange Panel on the west-most wall of this room and make your way through the Guard dogs into the small, north-most room along the mansion. Use the key your partner gave you to enter this room.
When your partner brings Grip into the room by clicking the drink cabinet, attack Grip with your ranged/magic weapon. After you kill Grip you can leave the room and wait for your partner outside the mansion. When they have retrieved the candlesticks, get yours from them.
Take the candlestick back to Straven in Varrock and to receive the Master thief armband. (It should be noted that you MUST kill Grip to obtain the candlesticks. Getting a candlestick from a player that previously completed Hero's quest will not work. However, player's whom previously completed the quest can still help you in the player assisted portion of this quest.)

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Upon completion, the quest is referred to as Hero guild entry quest
- This quest would later be renamed "Heroes' Quest" in RS2, to change to a grammatically correct possessive plural.
- In this newspost teasing its release, the quest is spelled "heroes quest", which is still not grammatically correct, but closer.
