Quest Start:

The mission begins by speaking with Martin Holt, located east of Kourend Castle in Kingstown. Martin reveals that the Kourend Council has taken control, and the previous king's daughter was supposed to take the throne. He agrees to help, and Martin will guide you on how to proceed. He instructs you to talk to Commander Fullore in the castle.

Conversation with Commander Fullore:

Commander Fullore explains that the Council is beneficial to Kourend and will accept your help in finding Sophia Hughes as long as you follow her orders. Saying "Let's go" triggers a scene where Tomas Lawry claims authority to lead the investigation. After the scene, enter the house to the north and search for clues about Hughes' whereabouts.

Places to Search:

- First Floor: 4 shelves, 2 tables, 4 wardrobes, roses.

- Second Floor: Bathtub, desk, dresser, bed, 3 drawers, 2 wardrobes.

- Third Floor: Table, skeleton (beware of the level 82 lesser demon).

Available Clues (Optional):

1. Rose.
2. Kourend map.
3. Demonic enchantments.
4. Order form.
5. Shipment confirmation.
6. Bloody knife.
7. Receipt.
8. Bone.
9. Cultist robe.


It's not necessary to find all the clues to progress; however, if you search for all of them, make sure to check the drawers next to the bedroom door on the second floor to obtain the receipt.


Be cautious of the lesser demon on the third floor. It is level 82 and can pose a challenge.

Facing the Judge

Recommended Items:
It is suggested to bring food and suitable combat equipment to confront the Judge of Yama, a level 168 melee opponent.

Meeting with Cabin Boy Herbert:

he player and Commander Fullore confront Sophia Hughes.

Head to Veos's ship in Port Piscarilius and speak with cabin boy Herbert, who has taken Veos's place. Herbert will inform you that Veos is in a trance since the earthquake. Inquire about the councilor and discover that the ship is about to set sail. A scene will unfold where you confront Hughes, who reveals his collaboration with the council and summons the Judge of Yama to eliminate both of you.

Progression of the Fight:

The player is challenged to a fight by the Judge of Yama.

The Judge of Yama is immune to magic and ranged damage, making him vulnerable only to melee combat. The fight takes place on a narrow dock that is 4 squares wide. The demon will launch three waves of fire towards you, and you must use the spaces without waves to approach and attack him. Note that if you get teleported away, you must repeat the process.

Combat Strategy:

1. The Judge of Yama attacks in melee when close.
2. Occasionally, he will teleport you away and launch waves of fire.
3. Utilize wave-free spaces to get close and attack.
4. If you cross the waves, you'll take moderate damage and a minor burn.
5. Ensure you have enough food to sustain your health.

Battle Reset:

In case of death or teleportation during the fight, there is a portal near Veos's ship in Port Piscarilius to re-enter. If you die, your gravestone will appear next to this portal.

Important Note:

Players with higher hitpoints (70+) may find it easier to run through the waves to the Judge and absorb the damage. The strategy varies based on player preferences and levels.

The Last Princess of Kourend

Required Items:

- Axe.
- Runes to cast a spell of fire higher than Fire Strike (Fire Bolt works).

Recommended Items:

- Xeric's Talisman or Kharedst's Memoirs for fast transportation.
- Games necklace.
- Food and combat equipment to defeat a level 132 Assassin.

Previous Outcome:

After the confrontation with the Judge of Yama, the scene shifts to Councilor Andrews thanking you for your help. He asks you to report to Martin Holt about resolving the issue with Sophia Hughes and for the protesters to disperse. However, before that, Commander Fullore asks you to meet her outside the castle.

Councillor Andrews expresses his gratitude for dealing with the demon.

Revelations and New Mission:

Fullore reveals information about Rose, the daughter of the old king, and asks you to investigate the council's conspiracy. Start the quest by talking to Martin Holt, the leader of the Royal Society of Kourend. Martin guides you about Rose's connection to Kharedst's Memoirs and suggests talking to Archeio in the Arceuus Library to teleport to the Archive.

Recovery of Rose's Diary:

In the Archive, steal the blue key from Istoria to open the violet display case and obtain Rose's diary. Read it and, upon finding a note on the cover, return to Martin. When talking to him while holding the diary, you'll find another note on the cover. Martin will ask you to find the location suggested by the note.

Search for the Location:

With an axe, head to the ruins of Forthos and talk to Martin north of the western entrance. Decipher the number combination on the stone piles around and cut the vines to get a new note. Then, search for the panel key in the ruins, melting the ice and picking it up from the shards. Inspect the panel and get another note.

Encounter with the Assassin:

The player and Martin are ambushed by an assassin.

Travel to the Settlement Ruins and talk to Martin. You will face a level 132 Assassin. Defeat the assassin with suitable food and equipment. After the fight, Martin will explain more about the conspiracy and corruption in Kourend's government.

Deciphering the Final Riddle:

Travel to The Legless Faun pub in Port Piscarilius and talk to Martin again. Climb the pillar and find the correct combination of the cities. Descend and touch the statues in the indicated order on the panel. Inspect the panel again to receive the last note.

Final Revelation:

The final location is revealed in the small house south of Mount Karuulm. Search for Rose's diary and learn more about her story. A scene shows Martin being arrested, and after a confrontation in the house, it is revealed that Rose is alive, and Councilor Liam Orson confesses his involvement in the council's conspiracy.

The Mysterious Mage

Required Items:
Weapon and armor to face Xamphur.
Food and prayer potions.

Preparations for the Final Battle:

Prepare for the final battle against Xamphur, a level 239 enemy with special mechanics. It is recommended to use a ranged weapon like a toxic blowpipe to make the fight easier. If you prefer melee combat, bring an abyssal whip or better, and make sure to have armor with good magic defense, such as Dragonhide armor. Bring enough high-healing food, like sharks, and prayer potions. Also, bring an emergency teleport, such as a teleport tab.

Location and Conversation with Kaht B'alam:

Head to the Lizardman Temple in Molch, using a skills necklace to teleport to the Farming Guild. Speak with Kaht B'alam in the northern room of the temple. Ask for help in finding the wizard Yo'kal ahk and agree to retrieve his last egg.

Recovery of the Egg:

Leave the temple and head west into the swamp. Go south across the stone bridge and look for piles of Lizardman eggs. Upon finding the correct stack, you will be attacked by a level 75 Brutal Lizardman. Kill the brute or escape from it and return to Kaht, delivering the egg to him.

Access to Xamphur's Chamber:

Kaht will give you a damp key, which opens the small door on the north wall of the temple hallway. Use it to reach a small room and open the door that leads to Xamphur's chamber.

Start of the Fight with Xamphur:

The player fights against Xamphur, one of Xeric's closest comrades.

Begin the fight with Xamphur, who will attack with magic. Use Protect from Magic to reduce the damage caused by his basic attacks. Avoid walking on the Dark Marks on the floor, as they will increase the effectiveness of his basic attack and the frequency of corruption.

Xamphur's Special Mechanics:

Xamphur has two special mechanics that he uses every ten attacks. Stay alert and avoid the Dark Marks. Turn off auto-retaliate and run to dodge his attacks.

Resetting the Fight:

If you leave the fight, either by dying or teleporting, you can return by entering through the door to continue the battle. If you die, your gravestone will be outside the door.

After defeating Xamphur, his connection to the events of the "The Ascent of Arceuus" quest is revealed. A scene shows Xamphur unleashing a powerful magic beam, seemingly killing you. However, you are still alive, and a note on the table reveals more details about Xamphur and his past actions. Return to Fullore in the basement of the hut to report your findings.
