Welcome to the in-depth guide for the Ghosts Ahoy quest in Old School RuneScape (OSRS). This is a novice quest that takes you on a spooky adventure to help the ghosts of Port Phasmatys find peace. Throughout this guide, you will find detailed step-by-step instructions, requirements, and useful tips to successfully complete the quest.
To start the Ghosts Ahoy quest, you must have the following requirements:
To begin the "Ghosts Ahoy" quest, head to the southernmost dock in Port Phasmatys. You can use the Ectophial teleport or Fairy Ring code ALQ to get there quickly. Once at the docks, talk to Velorina, who is standing near the gangplank of the ship. She will inform you about the ghostly activities in the town and request your help in dealing with the situation. Accept the quest to get started.
Velorina will ask you to investigate the haunted inn in Port Phasmatys. Head north to the inn, which is marked on your minimap with a ghost icon. Once inside, talk to the innkeeper, who will share some eerie stories about the ghostly occurrences.
After the conversation, search the cupboards in the inn to find a ghost speak amulet. Put it on as you will need it to communicate with the ghosts in the town.
Ecto-tokens are special tokens required for various activities in Port Phasmatys, and you'll need some for this quest. Head back to the docks and talk to Necrovarus, who is the ghostly figure near the ship. He will explain how to earn Ecto-tokens.
To earn Ecto-tokens, you can do the following:
You can combine the items as you collect them to save inventory space. For example, you can use an empty pot on the dairy cow to get a bucket of milk and then use the bucket of milk on a pot of flour to get a milk and flour mixture.
Return to Necrovarus with the items to receive your Ecto-tokens.
Now that you have the ghost speak amulet and some Ecto-tokens, it's time to communicate with the ghosts and learn more about their grievances. Head back to the haunted inn and use the ghost speak amulet to talk to the ghost innkeeper, who is now visible due to the amulet's effect.
The ghost innkeeper will tell you about a treasure buried beneath the inn and request your help in retrieving it. Agree to assist the ghost, and she will give you a key to access the treasure.
With the key in hand, head to the back of the inn and use it on the trapdoor to unlock it. Descend into the basement and search the barrels until you find a small chest. Open the chest to obtain a ghostly robe.
Now that you have the ghostly robe, head back to the ghost innkeeper and wear the robe to blend in with the ghosts. The ghosts will now consider you one of them, and you can pass through the barrier surrounding the Ectofuntus.
The Ectofuntus is a strange device used by the ghosts to worship the Ectoplasm. They believe that it helps them ascend to the afterlife. However, it seems that the Ectofuntus is not functioning correctly.
Head to the Ectofuntus, which is located to the east of the haunted inn, and investigate the area. You'll find a ghost named Ak-Haranu who is trying to fix the Ectofuntus.
Talk to Ak-Haranu and offer your help in fixing the machine. He will tell you that the Ectofuntus needs a particular type of bone grinder to work properly. He will give you instructions on how to build one.
To build the bone grinder, you will need the following items:
Once you have the items, combine them to create the bone grinder. Talk to Ak-Haranu again and show him the bone grinder. He will be impressed with your resourcefulness and will reward you with some Ecto-tokens.
With the bone grinder in hand, use it on the bone grinder mechanism on the Ectofuntus to repair it. Once the Ectofuntus is operational, you can now use your bones on the Ectofuntus to worship the Ectoplasm and gain Prayer experience.
As you worship the Ectofuntus, you may encounter the Restless Ghost, who is a unique ghost wandering around the area. Use the ghost speak amulet to talk to him, and he will reveal his name, Robin, and his past.
Robin's family heirloom was taken by the ghosts and buried somewhere in the graveyard. He asks for your help in finding it and putting his spirit to rest.
To help Robin find peace, head to the graveyard just north of the docks. Use the ghost speak amulet to talk to him again and follow his instructions.
He will guide you to the tombstone where his family heirloom is buried. Use your spade on the grave to dig up the heirloom and bring it back to Robin.
Give the heirloom to Robin, and he will express his gratitude. He will disappear, finally finding peace and moving on to the afterlife.
With the Ectofuntus now operational and Robin's spirit put to rest, head back to Necrovarus at the docks. Speak to him to complete the "Ghosts Ahoy" quest. He will reward you with Ecto-tokens and some Prayer experience for your efforts.
Congratulations! You have successfully completed the "Ghosts Ahoy" quest. Enjoy your rewards and the newfound peace in Port Phasmatys.
The "Ghosts Ahoy" quest is a spooky and entertaining adventure that allows you to interact with ghosts and help them find peace. Along the way, you'll earn Ecto-tokens, fix the Ectofuntus, and assist a restless spirit in finding closure.
