  9. See Vehemus for your reward.

Obtained from

Old Nickoles in Lion's Arch (during Wintersday festivals)


Armor: 8
Energy +5


"Each year during Wintersday, the gods Grenth and Dwayna clash to determine whether darkness or light will reign following the coming of the new year. Although Dwayna has many followers, there are some of us who understand that this is a season of somber reflection, a time to pay tribute to death, which is, after all, a necessary cycle of life. The call of Grenth has gone out, seeking all those who wish to serve the Merciless One to ensure his rise above the goddess of light for the coming year. Will you answer Grenth's call?
Accept: "I hate all this merry-making. I'm for Grenth!"
Reject: "You really need to lighten up."

Intermediate Dialogue 1 (Vehemus)

"Now you must help me create one of Grenth's unholy winter servants... a Grentch, a person whose heart has been shrunk three sizes. Grentches know only death, fear, and hatred, and their only goal is to create as much mischief and misery as possible.
Take this vial and place within it the four ingredients I need to concoct my special potion. The first ingredient you must gather, termites, shouldn't be difficult to find. Ask around for them. There must be some out there somewhere."

Intermediate Dialogue 2 (Fisherman Finnius)

"For more years than I can count, I've spent my days here on this dock, casting and reeling, casting and reeling. Some days the gods are kind to me, and I bring in plenty of fish, other days they ignore me, and I go home empty handed. Those are hard days, but that's the life of a fisherman. Over all these years and through three disastrous marriages, only one constant has remained... this wooden dock. She's been a good friend, a good listener. But these blasted termites have begun gnawing away on her beams, and I fear that soon she'll collapse into the ocean below.... If it's termites you're looking for, I'll give you all you need; my poor dock is overflowing with them."

Intermediate Dialogue 3 (Gunk Farmer Urme)

"You is looking for gunk? Then you is coming to the right Urme! I be the greatest gunk farmer in all of these swamps, I is. You is very lucky, Urme is just making a very large batch of gunk he is not be needing all of! I is giving you gunk for free because you is nice person, but you is not telling anyone I give it free. Urme not want everyone to expect free gunk, then Urme would be out of job!"

Intermediate Dialogue 4

Necromancer Skorzena: "Pathetic, sniveling useless nobel! Stop this caravan and turn your attention to me, your guide to the afterlife."
Nobelman Daltain: "You're that Necromancer who has been attacking the caravans! They say you show no mercy... Guards! To me! Make a circle around me!"
Necromancer Skorzena: "Your guards will be of little use to you. Their souls shall be ushered to the Underworld, just as yours shall."
Daltain Guard: "Dwayna protect us! It isn't my time to meet Grenth!"

Intermediate Dialogue 5

Daltain Guard: "These abominations cannot be stopped!"
Nobelman Daltain: "Fight harder, I say, or I shall tell my father to fire you! Of course, you'll be dead, but still...!"

Intermediate Dialogue 6 (Necromancer Skorzena)

"I gather Vehemus has sent you on one of his little scavenger hunts? That man is incapable of doing anything that involves getting his hands dirty. What is it you need? Garlic? You're in luck: it just so happens that I have some garlic right here. Now, leave me to my work. Grenth will be most pleased to have more souls to welcome to the Underworld this day, and should you not move quickly enough, I may just decide to add you to the list...."

Intermediate Dialogue 7

Villager Gessel: "Hey! Someone has stolen my precious, yet unwashed, socks! Stop, thief!"
Dreier Dane: "Mercenaries! You'll never catch me! I am a leaf on the wind! I, Dreier Dane, the infamous clothing bandit of lore and song, cannot be captured! I know why the caged moa sings!"

Intermediate Dialogue 8

Dreier Dane: "Curses, you've left me no place to run! Perhaps it is time that I, Dreier Dane, the infamous clothing bandit of lore and song, reconsider my choice of occupation!"

Intermediate Dialogue 9 (Dreier Dane)

"Do not blame me, blame society! I grovel before you, a lowly, mangy dog. My wife, she is sick; my thirteen children, limbless and afflicted with the dreaded whooping vapors. My cat, she has kittens, and... not buying it, are you? Look, can I talk to you thief to mercenary for a moment? All that I have will be yours if you leave me be. Of course, all I have are these unwashed socks, but free me, and they are yours! Gloriously filthy socks they are, blights on the stocking industry, but perhaps they might be of use to you. Socks are rare in these lands, and these are... okay, please, I'll shut up, just don't hurt me. Pain makes me break out in cuts, bruises and open wounds. I'm terribly allergic to it."

Intermediate Dialogue 10 (Vehemus)

"Praise be to Grenth! Surely his eyes are upon you. Two final steps remain. First, I must speak the sacred words that will bring the potion to the point of potency. "Stink! Stank! Stunk!"
Now go wait outside Lion's Arch. I will trick one of the people of this city into drinking the potion, which will shrink the dupe's heart three times, transforming the useless citizen into a blessed Grentch! I will send this new Grentch to meet you outside the city. From there, you will travel due north with the Grentch to the Ascalon Settlement. There Dwayna has left a bounty of gifts for the culmination of Wintersday. You will find these gifts, and together with the Grentch, you will destroy them! Should you and your Grentch complete the task, return and tell me so that I can pass on this glorious victory to our merciless lord himself. May the unholy blessings of Grenth go with you!"

Intermediate Dialogue 11

Grench: "It's time to wreak havoc, it's time to spread fear, it's time to make all of the gifts disappear. So take me to where I might find those filled with light, the Dwayna supporters who are merry and bright. Let us make mischief, oh such fun we shall find, ruining this holiday for the sweet and the kind!"
Grench: "They say 'tis the season of love and goodwill, I say 'tis a season of making you ill!"

Intermediate Dialogue 12 (Vehemus)

"The potion was a success, and a brand new Grentch awaits your command. Head north to the Ascalon Settlement! Destroy every gift, token and keepsake! Leave no present behind!"

Intermediate Dialogue 13

Grench: "Nothing but this will give me great joy: to see Dwayna's childen weep o'er broken toys."
Grench: "I can tell that we're close, to gift-givers we're near, the stench clogs my nose and it stuffs up my ears."

Intermediate Dialogue 14

Grench: "Servants of Dwayna, come close and pay heed, I've presents for all of your Wintersday needs!"
Grench: "No joy, no light, no sweet merriment, it's Wintersday joy that I'm here to prevent!"

Intermediate Dialogue 15

Grench: "I bring merciless blessings from Grenth below, you simpering, melting, weak men of snow!"

Reward Dialogue

"You have served Grenth most faithfully, <name>. Here is a token of his... appreciation. The work you have done today will surely help our merciless lord sway the balance of the battle to our side. I shall go let loose this Grentch upon the citizens that it might spread sadness and discontent. I'm looking forward to it."


None of these items will actually show up in your inventory, you just need to talk to the specific NPC to get them:

Once all the items are acquired, talk to Vehemus then leave from Lion's Arch to pick up the Grentch and destroy the presents (7 total) in the Ascalon Settlement; click on a present to destroy it. Destruction of the Brrrls (5 guarding the presents, 3 at the north gate) is optional. If the Grentch dies along the way, the quest can still be completed sucessfully.


  • When going to talk to Fisherman Finnius, if you (or a party member) has the Defend North Kryta Province quest active, you will fighting Titans instead of the usual monsters (so consider abandoning the quest and re-taking after). Also, if Finnius does not appear, zone in from Nebo Terrace.
  • You must "chase" Dreier until he decides to stop. If you use a speed boosting skill and "tag" him before then, you merely receive a generic NPC statement.
  • While you do need to talk to Vehemus outside of Lion's Arch to complete the quest, picking up the Grentch is not required. So after talking to Vehemus you can map travel to a different outpost from where it might be easier for you to reach the Ascalon settlements (such as Beetletun).
  • If for whatever reason you rezoned after destroying some, but not all the presents, the present-destruction counter will reset so you'll have to destroy all seven again.
  • Destroying all seven gifts before talking to Vehemus is possible, but leaves the progress at "0 of 7 presents remaining" without the completion flag, so you'll need to zone out and back in again to re-destroy the presents. It is possible, however, to destroy some presents before talking to Vehemus and destroy the rest afterwards.



  • The termites, gunk, unwashed socks, and garlic are a reference to "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch", in which it is stated that the Grinch has "Garlic in his soul" and "Termites in his smile", and that his "heart is full of unwashed socks" and his "soul is full of gunk". The lines to complete the potion "Stink, Stank, Stunk" are also lines in a song describing the Grinch. Vehemus' potion also shrinks the person's heart "three sizes", another reference to the Grinch.

Recipes Wiki, the recipe cookbook YOU can contribute to!


Garlic (Allium sativum) is a perennial plant in the family Alliaceae and genus Allium, closely related to the onion, shallot, and leek. It does not grow in the wild, and is thought to have arisen in cultivation, probably descended from the species Allium longicuspis, which grows wild in south-western Asia. Garlic has been used throughout all of recorded history for both culinary and medicinal purposes.

For years garlic has been the topic of much folklore. In ancient times, its pungent odor was believed to supply strength and courage to those who ate it. Garlic has been used for numerous things including embalming, warding off evil spirits, and curing everything from the common cold to tuberculosis and broken bones.

Even in modern times, garlic is still being promoted as a health food with medicinal properties. Though garlic is a nutritious food, many of the claims surrounding it are not backed up by research.

Garlic is a member of the Allium genus and classified as Allium sativa. The garlic bulb is covered with a loose, white, crackly outer skin and comprised of individual sections called cloves. Each clove is covered in a white sheath.

The portion of the plant most often consumed is an underground storage structure called a head. A head of garlic is composed of a dozen or more discrete cloves, each of which is a botanical bulb, an underground structure comprised of thickened leaf bases. Each garlic clove is made up of just one leaf base, unlike onions, which are composed of numerous leaf layers. The above-ground portions of the garlic plant are also sometimes consumed, particularly while immature and tender.

Garlic is very popular in the Middle East and Mediterranean countries, India and China. In America, 250 million pounds of garlic are consumed per year and its use is growing.

Garlic is characterized by its strong flavor and smell, stemming from its sulfur compounds. It makes a great flavoring agent for a variety of dishes. Garlic has a powerful pungent or "hot" flavour when raw, which mellows considerably when it is cooked. Raw or cooked, garlic is noted for its strong characteristic odor, and for giving those who eat it a distinctive breath odor as well. Some cultures accept the odor of garlic more than others. Northern European cuisines, for example, use garlic only modestly and tend to cook it for long periods of time to diminish its strength.



There are approximately 300 varieties of garlic grown throughout the world. In the United States about 90% of the garlic is grown in California and most comes in two types, early and late.

Early garlic is white or off-white in color and harvested in mid-summer. Late garlic is off-white on the outside.

American: white-skinned with a strong flavor.

Chileno: a reddish-colored, sharp tasting garlic grown in Mexico

Elephant: Not a true garlic, but a relative of the leek; its flavor is very mild and it is characterized by larger heads.

Green Garlic: Young garlic before it starts forming cloves. Green garlic looks like a baby leek with a long green top and small white bulb. Its flavor is much more mild than that of mature garlic.

Italian: Mauve in color with a somewhat milder flavor.

Availability, Selection, and Storage

Garlic is available year-round frozen or fresh. When buying fresh garlic, choose from plump, dry heads that feel firm. Avoid soft, mushy or shriveled cloves. American garlic should be white to off-white. Garlic should be stored in a cool, dark place (though not a refrigerator) and can be kept for several weeks. Many people use small clay garlic holders to keep their garlic as fresh as possible. Cloves that have sprouted can still be used but they will not be as strong in flavor as fresher cloves. The sprouts themselves can be cut up like scallions and chives and used in dishes.


To remove individual garlic cloves, peel outer layers from the bulb and snap out each clove from the base. Cloves can then be peeled very easily. For a more mild flavor, whole cloves can be added (unpeeled for an even more subtle taste) to food while it cooks or marinates and then discarded before serving the meal. Another trick for imparting a mild garlic flavor in your dish is to spear a garlic clove with a fork and stir your dish with it then discard the garlic when stirring is complete.

For a stronger flavor, used chopped, crushed, pressed or pureed garlic in dishes. The more finely garlic is chopped, the stronger its flavor will be. To chop garlic, cut in half lengthwise (remove the green core if there is one — it is bitter). Make several lengthwise cuts and then cut crosswise. A garlic press can be used also though these can be a bit tricky to clean.

To remove garlic odor from hands, use salt or lemon juice and then wash your hands with soap.

Cooking Garlic

Cooking garlic decreases the strength of its flavor making it much milder. The longer it is cooked, the more mild it tastes. Be careful not to sautè garlic too long at too high a temperature, it will brown very quickly and can become bitter.

To bake garlic, place whole, unpeeled bulbs rounded side down in a shallow baking dish, drizzle with oil, cover with foil and bake for 1 1/2 hours at 325°F.

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

Garlic is an item used for the Fishing Contest, Desert Treasure, and Vampire Slayer quests. Despite being a food, it cannot be eaten by itself. It is used, though, in making Spicy sauce and Guthix balance potions.

Garlic may also be used to weaken a vampire, making it an easier target. At the end of the Vampire Slayer quest, it is used along with a stake and a hammer to kill Count Draynor, a level 34 vampire.

Players may grind garlic into garlic powder with a pestle and mortar.

Obtaining garlic

Garlic can be found at these locations:


  • Before the release of Nomad's Requiem, the examine text for garlic was 'Can be found lying around Draynor Village and Ardougne'. This text was only used for help on where to find it, but was unreasonable as garlic can be obtained in several other places (this is probably why it was changed).
