Official quest description: The Fairy Queen should be awake and back in charge of the Lost City by now, but what is happening in Zanaris? Why hasn't the Fairy Godfather abdicated the throne? What is happening to all the fairy inhabitants and where has Fairy Nuff gone? Can you rise to the challenge of using the Fairy rings to search the other planes and Cure the Queen, in the second part of the Fairy Tale trilogy?
Release date: 11 July 2006 (Update)
Start: Martin the master gardener in Draynor Village.
Difficulty: *****
Length: Medium
Members only: Yes
Items needed:
Monsters to kill: Gorak (level 145)

The fairy rings can be used without the skill requirements. You must complete the quest until the point where you have permission to use the fairy rings, however.


Fairy Nuff's grotto.
  • Talk to Martin the Master Gardener in Draynor Village. He will tell you to come back once his crops are grown. Don't pickpocket him, and after 5 minutes or so return. He will tell you rather crossly that there is still something wrong. Agree to investigate.
  • Go to Zanaris, and head toward the bank. Just north of the bank is Fairy Nuff's grotto. Walk in, and you'll see a short cut scene.
  • Underneath one of the shelves is Fairy Nuff's healing certificate. Pick it up. If you lose it, you can get another by searching the shelves again.
  • Study the certificate: The back is covered in strange symbols.
  • Talk to the fairy chef (just south of the bank) about the certificate. She will tell you to go to the mysterious ruins (leading to the cosmic altar), also in Zanaris.
  • On the wall south of the mysterious ruins that lead to the Cosmic altar is a rune temple sign, with similar symbols on it. The sign says Cosmic Rune Altar. Using this, you can decode Fairy Nuff's certificate, showing that it reads:
The Godfather attacked us. We have fled to safety. If you are loyal to her majesty, find us by using the co-ordinates "AIR", "DLR", "DJQ", "AJS".
The Godfather
  • Talk to the Fairy Godfather near Chaeldar, pick the first option, and get permission to use the fairy rings. From this point, the whole fairy ring network is available to you.
  • Talk to the Co-ordinator for her to explain about the fairy rings. She hovers outside the room the Fairy Godfather is in.
  • Head back to the centre of Zanaris near the fountains, and you should see a fairy ring. Talk to Fairy Fixit there, and then try and use the fairy rings. See our Fairy rings guide to see what all the possibilities are.
  • Use the fairy ring four times, always returning back to Zanaris before using the next one: AIR (to small island), DLR (another small island), DJQ (just a few steps away from the fairy ring in Zanaris), AJS. If you end up on an island with some penguins, it is because you need to be holding Nuff's certificate: Go get it, and start again.
The War Room in the Fairy Resistance Hideout.
  • You should hopefully be in the Fairy Queen's new location. Just go up the corridor, and enter the middle room. Head to the north-east corner of the room, and talk to Fairy Nuff. She and Fairy Very Wise will tell you that the Queen is not well and that the Godfather has betrayed her.
  • Head back to Zanaris, and pickpocket the Fairy Godfather. If you fail, you will be teleported outside Zanaris, so try pickpocketing from behind or the side. You should get some golden Queen's secateurs. Also, at this point, you will see orks patrolling Zanaris (the fairies call them orcs.)
  • Take the Queen's secateurs back to Fairy Nuff (AJS again, you also still have to use the three other codes as before).
  • The queen is in the north-east corner, in the emergency medical area, with Nuff.

Talk to Fairy Nuff, and give her the secateurs. She will use them, but they do not completely revive the queen, so Nuff tells you she needs a Magic essence potion. Do not make the potion before talking to Fairy Nuff, as it will not work on the queen.

  • Return to the main fairy ring (get vials of water and a pestle and mortar if you don't already have them), and this time use the code CKP, which transports you to a higher plane. Hang around for about 2 minutes whilst the starflowers grow. You can pass the time by talking to the being who lives there, contemplating the mysteries of the universe. Pick the Starflower(s) when ready (level 49 farming needed), and add your harvest to your to vial(s) of water.
  • Return to Zanaris, bank, equip your armour and weapons, and take at least 10 good pieces of food. Prayer potions will not help you.
  • In the Zanaris fairy ring, use the sequence DIR to get to a room full of goraks. Kill one or more of these—protection prayers are ineffective against them so eat food as required. They are level 145 and occasionally drain stat points. Kill them (you can stand inside the fairy ring for protection if the gorak is trying to attack someone else) until you get a Gorak claw. Crush the claw with a mortar and pestle to get Gorak claw powder.
  • Add the Gorak claw powder to your vials to make a Magic essence potion. The Gorak may have lowered your stats while fighting, so you may have to wait until your Herblore restores, or you can drink a restore potion.

The Final Scene

Return to Fairy Nuff (using sequence AIR, DLR, DJQ, AJS). If you have problems, remember you must have Nuff's certificate with you, otherwise the sequence won't work. Use 1 dose of the magic essence potion on the Queen. She will recover, and you will complete the quest.

The Fairy Queen's quest is not complete, though. As she angrily prepares to return to Zanaris and take back her throne, Fairy Very Wise and Fairy Nuff remind her that the Godfather has thugs and orks. The queen has only her small band of loyalists, many of whom are injured. Her Majesty accepts this advice. War must be prepared, and the adventurer who helps the fairies will probably play a significant role. But the Fairy Godfather will continue to rule Zanaris—for now.

Note: If you return to talk to Martin the Master Gardener in Draynor Village, he will still tell you to come back once his crops are grown. Hopefully he'll pay up in the next installment.


A Fairy Tale Part II Reward


Music tracks unlocked:


  • This quest goes by several similar names in RuneScape:
    • 'Fairytale II - Cure a Queen' in the Quest Journal control panel.
    • 'Fairy Tale II - Cure a Queen' in the game window, when you click on the Quest Journal entry.
    • 'A Fairy Tale Part II - Cure a Queen' in the Knowledge Base.
  • The music track "All's Fairy in Love and War" is a possible reference to a famous English proverb “All's fair in love and war”, by John Lyly.
  • The music track "Dimension X" is the name of a radio show in the 1950s.
  • The music track "We Are The Fairies" could possibly be a reference to the song "We are the Champions" by Queen, "We are the Robots" by Kraftwerk, or "We are the World" by Michael Jackson et al. Coincidentally this has the same title as "Wij zijn the Fairies" by comical Dutch duo Bassie and Adriaan, meaning exactly the same thing.
  • Talking to a cow in Zanaris with Nuff's certificate in your inventory leads to your character showing the cow the certificate, asking what the markings on the back mean, and receiving a snappy answer where the cow states "Can't the human take a hint? I've been ignoring you! Do you think I would ignore you if I wanted to discuss your Rorschach ink-blots?" This is a reference to Rorschach tests, which are a means of pyschological evaluation by showing a subject blots of ink on paper.
  • When examined, Nuff's Certificate reads "A scroll that says she's a healer, that's Fairy Nuff." "That's Fairy Nuff" is a spin off "That's fair enough."
  • The name "The Godfather" is based on the crime novel "The Godfather" by Mario Puzo, which is also about the Mafia.
  • The message from the Adventurer's Log says "The Fairy Queen hasn't regained her throne...yet. War must be prepared and troops mustered before the Godfather can sleep with the fishes." which is a reference to a popular Mafioso saying sleeping with fishes.
