Fairy Tale quest series: Misc



Up to date as of February 07, 2010

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape


The Fairy Tale quest series is a series of four quests, three of which have been released.



The quests involve the player discovering the lost city of Zanaris, which is inhabited by fairies. Zanaris is on a different plane than the world of Gielinor and is accessible through fairy magic.

After discovering the city, the player becomes involved in helping the fairies. The Fairy Queen becomes sick, and the Fairy Godfather governs the city and sends the player to help cure the queen. The cure does not fully work, and it turns out the godfather is plotting to kill the queen and assume permanent control over the city. The queen and some other fairies flee to a secret hideout, where with the players assistance they form a resistance movement and plan to regain control of the city. Information from Jagex indicates that the fourth quest will resolve this situation.


Lost City

Main article: Lost City

The player learns about a lost city through a group of NPCs at the Lumbridge Swamp. A leprechaun tells the player that the city can entered via a small shack in the swamp, but the player must be wielding a Dramen staff. The player travels to the Entrana Dungeon to acquire a branch for the staff from a special tree. The challenge is that no weapons or armour are allowed on Entrana, but the dungeon is inhabited by aggressive monsters, including a spirit that protects the tree. A player who succeeds in cutting a branch gets a Dramen staff, and the quest ends with the player entering Zanaris.

Fairytale I: Growing Pains

The crops of G.A.G. (the Group of Advanced Gardeners) are failing, and Martin the Master Gardener sends the player to find out why. One of five farmers tells the player that the fairies are responsible. The player investigates and find out that the fairy queen in Zanaris is sick from a fight with the Tanglefoot. While the queen is sick, crops will not grow correctly.

The fairy godfather is running the city in the queen's absence and enlists the player to search for a cure. The player talks to many NPCs in a search for a cure, finally discovering that the Tanglefoot must be killed with a pair of Magic secateurs, to recover the queen's secateurs which can be used to make the cure. The quest ends with the player giving the secateurs to the godfather. Orks appear throughout Zanaris afterwards.

Fairytale II: Cure a Queen

The player discovers from Martin the Master Gardener that the crops are still not growing correctly. The player travels to Zanaris and discovers the fair godfather did not use the queen's secateurs to cure the queen. Instead, he and his forces, including his Ork allies, took over Zanaris. The queen and several fairies escaped and went into hiding.

The player learns how to find the queen's hideout, and this discovery unlocks full access to the Fairy ring teleport system. The player helps the fairies, recovers the secateurs by pickpocketing the godfather, and assists the fairies in curing the queen. The quest ends with the godfather and the orks still in control of the city, with the queen still in hiding but planning how to regain control of the city.
