It is very important at this time to decide which gang you wish to join. This choice is important for two reasons:
- You need a member of the opposite gang to cooperate with you in order to complete this quest.*
- If you are a skiller/skill pure, you can choose the Black Arm gang and have someone else from the same gang kill the weapon master for you.
Being a member of the Phoenix gang is recommended if a player has lower combat levels, but requires 20 coins.
The Black Arm gang is less complicated to complete, but requires you to defeat a 23 level NPC in close combat in order to obtain the Phoenix gang's crossbows so as to join the Black Arm gang.
To find a partner for the quest, it is recommended to check the Oldschool Runescape forums. There is an official clan chat, Osrs Soa, which is dedicated for finding another partner for this quest, in addition to Heroes' Quest.
Items required: None.
Talk to Reldo, located in Varrock's library, in Varrock Palace. Ask him for a quest and he will tell you there is probably a book on something in the library. You have to now search the bookcase with a blue book in the top shelf. When you've found it, read or skim through it. After you've read the book, speak with Reldo and ask him about the whereabouts of the Phoenix Gang, but he tells you to go to Baraek, the fur trader in Varrock square, because he doesn't know.
