quest(Shield of Arrav)

Posted in quest on May 30, 2008 by byq003

Getting Started

Before starting this quest, you are going to need a friend to help you who has not started this quest yet. Speak to Reldo, located in the Varrock Castle library, north from the entrance of the castle. Ask him for a quest. After a short conversation, he mentions about a book in the nearby shelves that may tell you about a quest. This book can be seen by a blue and white shield in the top shelf, facing away from the desk. After you have read this book, talk to Reldo and he tells you to talk to Baraek, who located outside of Varrock Castle.

Now that both of you have started the quest, decide on the gang that each of you will join. Apparently the Shield was broken in half, and each gang has 1 piece. You’ll each have to join a different gang to get both halves.

Phoenix Gang

Baraek can be found outside Varrock Castle in the marketplace, near the fur stall. Ask him about the gang, but before he gives out the location, he wants 20gp. After he tells you about the location of the gang, head along the south wall, walking east until you see a small building with a dungeon symbol. Entrance Climb down the ladder and talk to Straven.

Tell him that you know who they are, and that you would like to offer your services. He wants you to get an Intelligence Report from Johnny the Beard, located inside the Blue Moon Inn. After killing him, you should receive an ‘Intel report’. Bring that back to Straven and then he will allow you to be in the Phoenix Gang. He will give you a key in return, in which you have access to both the Phoenix hideout and a weapon storage place. Enter the hideout and head southwest until you see a chest. Open and search it and you will receive a left-half shield.

As soon as you get the left-half shield, climb the ladder and walk over to the building east of the hideout. Open the door and climb the ladder to approach a weapon storage building. Inside there is a Weaponmaster who is Level 23 and guards the Phoenix Crossbows. Kill the Weaponmaster and take two Phoenix crossbows on the floor. Give these to your friend in the Black Arm Gang.

Note: Magic attacks do not work on the Weaponmaster.

Black Arm Gang

After you have spoken to Reldo, talk to Charlie the Tramp and ask about the alley behind him. He says that the Black Arm Gang can be found there, and ask if they would let you join. Talk to Katrine, who is inside the building and tell her that you’ve heard that they are the Black Arm Gang. Ask her if you can become part of the gang, and asks you to steal two Phoenix Crossbows. Make sure your friend has traded you two Phoenix Crossbows.

Give Katrine the crossbows and she makes you part of the gang. Go upstairs and search the cupboard on the east wall for a right-half shield.

Final Steps

Once each of you have half a shield make your way to the Museum, north from Varrock East Bank. Talk to the curator. You will receive either two left half certificates, or two right half certificates. Which certificate you get depends on which gang you’re in. Find your partner, and trade them exchanging one of the certificates, so that you both have a left half, and a right half certificate. Use one half with the other to get a full Certificate, and then talk to King Roald in Varrock Castle to redeem your reward.

Congratulations! Quest Completed.

Crystal Bow

After completing the Roving Elves Quest, Members have the opportunity to buy a Crystal Bow for 900,000gp. You must have at least level 70 Ranging to use the bow. Unlike other bows, the Crystal Bow uses no ammo, and instead fires a magical shot. When you first start using it, it will have 2,500 uses, and each time you fire it, the remaining shots will decrease (As well as the attack bonus). If you right-click on the bow, you’ll see a rating out of 10, depending on how many shots you have left.

Crystal Bow Attack Ratings
Phase Range Attack Bonus
10/10 100
9/10 96
8/10 92
7/10 88
6/10 84
5/10 80
4/10 76
3/10 72
2/10 68
1/10 64

When all 2,500 shots have been used up, the bow stops working and turns into a crystal seed. This seed can be regrown into a fully charged bow by Ilfeen the Roving Elf, who can be found in central Isfadar. The first time you have a crystal bow recharged it will cost 900,000gp, but the price reduces after that:

Crystal Bow Recharge Cost
Recharge Cost
First 900,000gp
Second 720,000gp
Third 540,000gp
Fourth 360,000gp
Fifth and Onwards 180,000gp

It’s also worthwhile noting that you can have more than one Crystal Bow at once, by purchasing more Crystal Seeds and charging them.

Gloves offer small Defense, but in some cases you need them to perform certain actions, such as picking up Nettles or Firebird Feathers. They may not have much defense, but they look good and are often worth it.

Leather Gloves
Regular Leather gloves are easy to obtain. They offer very small Defense and are considered worthless. You can craft these.

Colored Gloves
Some people believe they give better bonuses, but they are just a different color, for looks. Obtained in various place around runescape, some are tradeable to free players (The Canifis Gloves). Ham & FremennikGloves as well as any other gloves fall into this category, and cannot be made.

Splitbark Gloves
Although not the best globes for mages, these gloves provide a decent amount of defense.

Vambraces are known as archer armbands, which are designed to make the user fire arrows longer, so it gives more Defense and range bonus than regular gloves. Dragon Vambraces offer considerable Defense and magical protection.

Ice Gloves
Obtained from the ice queen in the Heroes Quest, these ice cool gloves allow you to touch hot stuff without harm. They offer a little better defense than regular gloves.

Mystic Gloves
Offering no physical protection but a small magic bonus, these gloves are made for mages. These are bought from the Magic Guild or dropped from Slayer monsters.

Klank’s Gauntlets
These hard gloves protect you from Half-Souless bites in the Underground Pass Quest. They are bought at 5,000gp each, and they are some of the best gloves in the game.

Steel Gauntlets
Offering the same great bonuses like the Klank Gauntlets, these gauntlets can actually be enchanted to 3 different types of gloves (Cooking, Crafting or Magic), after the Family Crest Quest. If you lose them, you can always get them back from the father.

Armored Gloves

Weapons are of course what you use throughout the game to attack NPCs and other players. Again, you need certain Attack levels to be able to wield different types of weapons as shown below.

1 1 5 10 20 30 40 60
Metal bronze Iron Steel Black Mithril Adamant Rune Dragon

Of course there are different weapons for different scenarios. Read below to find out information about each weapon. For the full statistics of each type of weapon in each type of smithable metal, please refer to our Smithing Tables.

CLAWS (members)
Speed Strength Damage
Fast Weak
  • Chop (Accurate – Slash)
  • Slash (Aggressive – Slash)
  • Lunge (Controlled – Stab)
  • Block (Defensive – Slash)
As fast as a Dagger, these can attack at over double the speed of a two-handed sword. Their ‘Slash’ attack is better than a dagger, but they can’t be poisoned.
Speed Strength Damage
Fast Weakest
  • Stab (Accurate – Stab)
  • Lunge (Aggressive – Stab)
  • Slash (Aggressive – Slash)
  • Block (Defensive – Stab)
A very fast weapon that is mainly for Stabbing, although it can be used to ‘Slash’ as well. The dagger is very useful for members because they can also be poisoned. This combination of speed and poison can prove lethal in player vs player combat and it’s good to start off a fight against Rangers or Mages.
Speed Strength Damage
Fast Weak
  • Stab (Accurate – Stab)
  • Lunge (Aggressive – Stab)
  • Slash (Aggressive – Slash)
  • Block (Defensive – Stab)
A fast Stabbing weapon which can deal more damage than basic daggers. It can also be used to ‘Slash’ and it’s good for people on a tight budget.
Speed Strength Damage
Fast Medium
  • Chop (Accurate – Slash)
  • Slash (Aggressive – Slash)
  • Lunge (Controlled – Stab)
  • Block (Defensive – Slash)
This is a ‘Slash’ only weapon, but stronger than a Short Sword. This is the ideal weapon to use on F2P as it hits well through Mages’ cloth and Rangers’ leather, and it’s a good compromise between speed and strength.
Speed Strength Damage
Medium Weak
  • Pound (Accurate – Crush)
  • Pummel (Aggressive – Crush)
  • Spike (Controlled – Stab)
  • Block (Defensive – Crush)
Primarily a ‘Crushing’ weapon which is good against platemail, this is the more flexible and weaker form of a warhammer. It is also the weapon of choice for priests as they give slight prayer bonuses.
Speed Strength Damage
Medium Medium
  • Chop (Accurate – Slash)
  • Slash (Aggressive – Slash)
  • Lunge (Controlled – Stab)
  • Block (Defensive – Slash)
A warrior’s loyal friend and often chosen weapon in many battles. It is used to ‘Stab’ and ‘Slash’ opponents and has enough strength to inflict significant damage. It has a good compromise between speed and strength, and also has a ‘controlled’ fighting option to spread xp gained amongst all fighting levels.
SPEAR (members)
Speed Strength Damage
Medium Medium
  • Lunge (Controlled – Stab)
  • Swipe (Controlled – Slash)
  • Pound (Controlled – Crush)
  • Block (Defensive – Stab)
The most flexible weapon in the game, it can attack with all different types of options. However it sacrifices speed and strength. It also has a ‘controlled’ fighting option. It can be poisoned.
Speed Strength Damage
Slow High
  • Chop (Accurate – Slash)
  • Hack (Aggressive – Slash)
  • Smash (Aggressive – Crush)
  • Block (Defensive – Slash)
Faster than the two-handed sword yet not as strong. This is the second most favoured weapon amongst warriors and can inflict significant ‘Slash’ damage versus Rangers and Mages, as well as ‘Crush’ damage versus other warriors.
Speed Strength Damage
Slow Medium
  • Pound (Accurate – Crush)
  • Pummel (Aggressive – Crush)
  • Block (Defensive – Crush)
A big lump of metal on the end of a stick, this is only used for fighting versus other warriors to ‘Crush’ through their platemail.
Speed Strength Damage
Slowest Highest
  • Chop (Accurate – Slash)
  • Slash (Aggressive – Slash)
  • Smash (Aggressive – Crush)
  • Block (Defensive – Slash)
Although the slowest of all weapons, it is very much the strongest weapon in the game. However, it can not be used with a shield. It can not be used to Stab but it still packs a mighty punch. This weapon is not used often due to its slow speed.
HALBERD (members)
     Speed Strength Damage
Slowest Highest
  • Jab (Controlled – Stab)
  • Swipe (Aggressive – Slash)
  • Fend (Defensive – Stab)
Being very slow is the disadvantage of this weapon. However, its advantage is its great reach whereby the warrior can attack enemies from a 2 square distance, even oversmall obstacles. This can be exploited in certain situations.
