Starting the Dragon Slayer II Quest in OSRS

Location and NPC to Start

The Dragon Slayer II quest begins with Alec Kincade, who is found outside the entrance to the Myths’ Guild. The Myths’ Guild is located in the south-western corner of the Feldip Hills area, just south of the Fishing Guild and east of the Ranging Guild. Players can easily reach the starting location by using various teleportation methods, such as the spirit tree network or teleporting to a nearby city and walking.

Initial Conversation and Objectives

To initiate the Dragon Slayer II quest, players should engage in a conversation with Alec Kincade. Select the dialogue option, “How do I gain access to the guild?” to express your interest in joining the Myths’ Guild. Alec will explain that in order to gain access, you must undertake a significant journey to uncover the origins of dragons within Gielinor. This sets the stage for the quest, outlining the grand adventure that awaits.

After this initial conversation, Alec Kincade will assign the first set of objectives, which includes traveling to various locations to gather information and items necessary for the quest. The immediate next steps involve going to Musa Point to meet with Dallas Jones in a bar just north of the banana plantation. Dallas Jones plays a crucial role in the early stages of the quest, providing insight and further instructions on how to proceed.

Gathering Information on Elvarg in Dragon Slayer II

Travel to Musa Point

To gather information on Elvarg, the first task in the Dragon Slayer II quest involves traveling to Musa Point. Players can easily access Musa Point by using the Karamja teleport available on the Amulet of Glory. Upon arrival, the destination is the bar located just north of the banana plantation, identifiable by a beer icon on the map. This location is pivotal as it serves as the meeting point with Dallas Jones, who holds essential information regarding Elvarg.

Conversation with Dallas Jones

Upon reaching the bar at Musa Point, players must find and converse with Dallas Jones. He expresses a desire to conduct further research on Elvarg, the dragon previously defeated in the original Dragon Slayer quest. Dallas Jones is intrigued by the peculiar circumstances surrounding Elvarg, notably her solitary existence away from other dragons. To progress, players must engage with Dallas Jones, discussing Elvarg’s unique situation and the broader implications it may have on understanding dragons in Gielinor.

Investigating Elvarg’s Lair

Following the conversation with Dallas Jones, the quest leads players to investigate Elvarg’s Lair, located within the depths of the Karamja volcano. The entrance to the lair is situated a bit to the west of the volcano’s dungeon entrance. Players must navigate through the dungeon, potentially encountering aggressive demons. Protective measures, such as combat gear or prayer, are advisable.

Upon reaching Elvarg’s Lair, the focus shifts to exploring the area for clues. A notable point of interest is a suspicious-looking wall within the lair. By mining this wall, players uncover a hidden tunnel, hinting at secrets lying beyond the known confines of the lair. Dallas Jones speculates the lair might have connections to the ancient Dragonkin, suggesting the existence of a laboratory used by this ancient race to create dragons. This revelation prompts an investigation into the ancient machinery and murals found within the newly discovered area, leading to the acquisition of old notes and the learning of the word “lith crin,” which signifies a new direction in the quest’s journey.

Discovering Lithkren in Dragon Slayer II

Journey to Fossil Island

The journey to Lithkren begins with a trip to Fossil Island. Players are instructed to use the Digsite pendant to teleport directly to the island, then utilize the magic mushroom tree network to travel to the House on the Hill. This location is crucial as it serves as the launching point for the quest’s next phase. Players are reminded to bind the teleportation magic of the Digsite pendant to the strange machine located at the House on the Hill for future convenience.

Uncovering the Map Pieces

Upon reaching Fossil Island and conversing with Dallas Jones at the House on the Hill, players learn of the existence of Lithkren and the necessity to locate a map to navigate there. The task requires players to find 24 pieces of the map scattered around the island. However, the task is simplified as players only need to search five specific locations:

  • The open chest in the House on the Hill
  • A stone chest north of the trapdoor
  • Fungi north of a staircase
  • Hook Briar to the south
  • A mush tree to the east of the building

These locations yield the necessary map pieces, which players then assemble on the floor of the House on the Hill, solving a puzzle to reveal Lithkren’s location.

Crafting the Boat and Sailing to Lithkren

To reach Lithkren, players must construct a boat. This step involves gathering materials, including oak planks, swamp paste, and nails, and heading to the beach west of the mushroom forest on Fossil Island. Here, players craft the boat, an action that marks a significant progression in the quest. With the boat ready, players must inform Dallas Jones of their preparedness to set sail.

Unraveling the Dragonkin’s Secrets

Entering the Ancient Laboratory

The quest kicks off with the explorer delving into a hidden laboratory believed to be used by the ancient Dragonkin. This discovery is made after mining through a suspicious wall inside a volcano, where Elvarg the dragon resided. Venturing into the laboratory reveals a setting far more sophisticated than anticipated, suggesting it was a place of significant importance.

Deciphering the Mural and Machinery

Within the laboratory, ancient machinery and a mural catch the adventurer’s eye. Interacting with these artifacts yields old notes and insights into the creation of dragons, hinting at the Dragonkin’s involvement. This ancient race, known for their powerful magic and mysterious endeavors, appears to have engineered dragons as their creations or weapons. The ancient mural, upon closer inspection and after a brief encounter with a guardian, reveals the word “Lithkren” — a name that resonates with tales and locations encountered elsewhere.

The Diary of Robert the Strong

The quest further thickens the plot with the discovery of a diary belonging to Robert the Strong, found next to a skeleton within the same ancient laboratory. This diary unveils Robert’s encounters and confrontations with the Dragonkin, shedding light on his efforts to thwart their dark designs. The diary also hints at a divided key, essential for unlocking deeper secrets related to the Dragonkin and their dragon creations.

Finding Bob the Cat

Methods to Locate Bob

Bob the Cat is a central figure in deciphering the mysteries surrounding the Dragonkin. The quest involves two primary methods to find him:

  1. World Hopping: One approach is to visit places Bob is known to frequent, such as the anvils in Varrock, and hop worlds until he is found. This method, however, may prove tedious and is susceptible to limitations on frequent world switching.
  2. Cat Speak Amulet: A more efficient method involves using the Cat Speak Amulet. By adjusting the amulet’s whiskers and observing the direction in which its eyes light up, adventurers can determine Bob’s location relative to theirs. This technique is highly recommended for tracking Bob’s movements across Gielinor.

The Sphinx and Memory Potion

Upon locating Bob, it becomes apparent that he does not remember his past life as Robert the Strong. To unlock his memories, the quest leads to the Sphinx in Sophanem. The Sphinx, however, is unable to directly assist with Bob’s memories but suggests seeking the Onieromancer on Lunar Isle for a solution. The Onieromancer then provides instructions for crafting a memory potion, a concoction made from goutweed, water, and ground astral rune shards. This potion is pivotal for accessing Bob’s past and advancing the quest.

Battle with Robert the Strong

The memory potion facilitates entry into a dream where the adventurer must confront Robert the Strong. Preparing for this encounter involves gearing up with crush-attack weapons and ensuring protection prayers are ready, particularly against ranged attacks. Robert, showcasing his prowess with ranged and powerful special attacks, presents a formidable challenge. Successfully defeating him in this dream realm is crucial for recovering lost memories and progressing through the quest’s narrative.

Assembling the Dragon Key

Collecting Key Pieces from Various Dragons

The assembly of the Dragon Key is a pivotal task in “Dragon Slayer II,” involving a quest to gather key pieces from various dragons. This entails engaging in battles with different types of dragons, each holding a fragment of the key. These dragons are located in diverse, perilous locations, posing a unique set of challenges to the adventurer. The quest involves navigating through dungeons, mazes filled with traps, and enemies, all while under the threat of dragon fire. The collection of these pieces is crucial for piecing together the ancient key required to advance in the quest.

Forging the Key Parts

Once the key pieces are collected, the next step involves forging these parts into a single, unified key. This process is carried out at a very hot furnace located near anvils next to lava. The adventurer needs to click on any of the anvils to initiate the forging process. This step symbolizes the culmination of efforts in gathering the scattered pieces, transforming them into a functional key capable of unlocking the mysteries that lie ahead.

Using the Key on Lithkren

The final use of the assembled Dragon Key occurs on Lithkren, a location steeped in lore and the epicenter of the quest’s climax. Upon reaching a grandiose door, the Dragon Key is used, fitting perfectly and initiating a significant sequence of events. This action unlocks new chambers and leads to a deeper understanding of the ancient Dragonkin’s secrets. It is in these newly accessed areas that pivotal discoveries are made, including interactions with key characters and the unveiling of the Dragonkin’s dark projects.

Forming an Alliance Against the Dragon Threat

Meeting with King Roald in Varrock

The initiative to form an alliance against the dragon threat begins with a visit to Varrock, where the adventurer meets King Roald. The king is informed about the imminent danger posed by dragons, particularly the discovery of a mutant dragon on the loose. Understanding the gravity of the situation, King Roald commits to gathering troops and suggests contacting other rulers to unify efforts against the dragon menace.

Gathering Support from Other Leaders

Following King Roald’s advice, the quester embarks on a diplomatic mission to enlist the support of leaders from various kingdoms:

  • Sir Amik Varze in Falador: Located in the White Knights’ Castle, Sir Amik is briefed on the dragon threat. Like King Roald, he acknowledges the situation and agrees to contribute to the alliance.
  • King Lathas in Ardougne: The adventurer then travels to Ardougne to discuss the looming threat with King Lathas, who, upon hearing the details, also agrees to join the alliance.
  • Brundt the Chieftain in Rellekka: The final stop involves securing the support of Brundt in Rellekka. With his agreement, the coalition against the dragons strengthens further.

Planning the Attack Strategy

Once support from the key leaders is secured, the adventurer returns to Varrock for a strategic meeting held in King Roald’s dining room. The assembly includes all the newly allied leaders, where they deliberate on the best course of action to counter the dragon threat. The discussion culminates in a unanimous decision to deploy a fleet of ships for a direct assault on the dragons. Despite the inherent risk of using wooden ships against fire-breathing dragons, the leaders are resolute in their commitment to neutralize the threat.

The Final Battle Against Galvek

Phase 1: Repairing the Ship

  • Nature of the Phase: This phase involves no combat and is purely about making repairs to the ship over a duration of four minutes.

  • Commencement: The phase starts as the player ventures westward from the ship, engaging in an agility course that involves navigating across gaps, jumping onto ships, and traversing through debris.
  • Dragon Encounters: Throughout this course, the player will encounter and need to defeat various dragons, including a normal Red Dragon and an Iron Dragon, each with standard dragon fight mechanics. Additionally, a Brutal Green Dragon is encountered, which also does not possess any special attacks beyond the typical dragon abilities.
