The completed cave directions.
  • Speak to Manni the Reveller, found in the Rellekka Longhall, to start the quest. He will give you a drink and requests that you invite Mawnis Burrowgar of Neitiznot and King Vargas of Miscellania to Chieftain Brundt's birthday feast.
  • Upon inviting one of them (either, it makes no difference), they reply saying they cannot go because it's a "world of trouble" and suggest you talk to Brundt as to why. Only one of the two rulers must be spoken to in order to progress.
  • Speak to the Chieftain, and you find out that he is angry at them too.

Brundt's story

  • During the cutscene, Brundt says that he, Prince Vargas, Young Mawnis, Nial Swiftfling, and Asleif the healer (this Asleif is the same woman as from the Mountain Daughter quest) were meant to go into battle, but were defeated and somehow found their way outside the Fishing Guild. They argued amongst themselves over what happened to the tablet they went to find, and then the cutscene ends. The Chieftain wants to find out who stole the tablet.
  • He also gives you Cave directions which will help you find the ice creatures' cave, but there's only one sentence which is useful to you. You will need to talk to Vargas and Mawnis to get the other two instructions.

Vargas's story

  • Go talk to King Vargas (Miscellania). He'll give his side of the story. Another cutscene will occur.
  • During the cutscene, the four adventurers encounter a horrifying monster, the Gnoeals, which curses Prince Vargas, but he defeats it nonetheless. Prince Vargas hits a 53, then 71 on the monster with a dragon longsword, which is impossible for a player to hit (However, as discovered by Asleif, the story Vargas tells is a lie, and he likely hit so high in his story because of his pride).
  • He reveals he doesn't remember Asleif helping any of them.

Mawnis's story

  • Travel to Neitiznot to speak with Mawnis Burrowgar.
  • The cutscene starts after talking to Mawnis Burrowgar. It's revealed that the Gnoeals spat green goo at Nial, taking the full brunt of the attack. Asleif asks if anyone was hurt and Mawnis will say a little bit of it got on Vargas.
  • Nial turns into a yeti, and defeats the Gnoeals, but Nial is "quite out of his mind" and they all flee after going on a rampage.

Finding the ice creature's cave

You must have the complete list of directions in order to find the cave.

Make sure you are prepared for the battle (Combat 156, attacks with Melee and Ranged)!

  • Follow the instructions on the notes. You will find yourself at the polar hunting region. The fairy ring code DKS can teleport you close by. Head to the North-western corner of the hunter area's upper platform and begin following the footprints that are there (Note: If you are unable to see any footprints try switching to HD). Follow them to the block of ice just to the east and use the dig option while carrying a pickaxe. You MUST inspect all of the footprints, or else it won't let you dig. It may be hard to spot the tracks in low details.
  • NOTE: If you neglected to bring one you can use the eagles nearby to travel to the desert which has a bronze pickaxe spawn just South-west of the cave. Or, you can use the Fairy Ring teleport to the bank in Zanaris.
  • Once inside the cave, run to the far South-western corner. There will be several level 90 Yetis and Gnoeals attacking you. NOTE: Low-levelled players may want to turn on Protect from Magic to prevent damage from the Gnoeals.
  • Go through the small opening. You will be attacked by Nial Swiftfling's yeti form, who is level 156. Nial attacks with melee and ranged and is reasonably powerful, so bring some good food. Nial is able to push you back, (like the Giant Roc during My Arm's Big Adventure or the Ice Troll King during Fremennik Isles) and will do so every three to four hits.

There is a safe spot on the western side of the cave where you fight, with the protect from range prayer on you will take no damage aside from when it roars.

A safe spot.

NOTE: If you happen to die while fighting the yeti, a grave marker does appear. If you happen to kill the yeti and die at the same time, you will have to kill it again to receive the items necessary to finish the quest.

When defeated, he will drop the following;

NOTE: If after you have killed Nial and got all his items and "Mawnis has given me his part of the directions to the cave. Once I've investigated there, I need to speak to his sister, Freygerd, in Jatizso." is NOT crossed out, go back in the cave again, kill Nial and pick up everything he drops - you will get a few of the same items. You will get that crossed out and you may go talk to Freygerd on Jatizso. (Leave the cave. The tracks are now gone.)

Happiness for Mawnis

  • Head to Jatizso, and speak with Freygerd, located on the west side of the island. Tell her you've "put Nial to rest" and she is relieved. She wants to move back to Neitiznot, but King Gjuki Sorvott IV has threatened her with an emigration tax.
  • After having a delightful chat with the king (in the checker-floored building west of the bank), Freygerd doesn't have to pay the tax. After giving her Nial's throwing axe she tells you to go to her brother, Mawnis Burrowgar and tell him the good news. (That she, Freygerd, is moving back to Neitiznot)

Happiness for Vargas

The transformation from Yeti into a human.
  • NOTE- You will need to be using the normal spell book (NOT the lunar or ancient magicks spell book) during this part of the quest.
  • Talk to King Vargas again. After talking about the Herb pouch you will need to give it back to Aslief.
  • Head to Mountain Camp. You will need to take an empty vial, Yeti hair, Herb pouch, Earth (10) and cosmic runes (1), Pestle and mortar and one Clean irit with you. Before proceeding, take a pole and a plank from the Goat's pen in the mountain camp if you haven't already got one from the Mountain Daughter quest alternatively you can use a staff (i.e. Dramen staff or Earth staff).

(Optional: Bring the Seal of passage, to save an extra bank trip, after the quest)

  • Climb the tree, use the pole on rocks, and use a plank on the flat stone to get to middle of the lake. Talk to Asleif by left-clicking on the "shining pool". Asleif reveals that King Vargas' story was all a lie, but only because he is a proud man. He doesn't remember Asleif helping him because he chooses not to.
  • Use your empty vial with the spring next to you and add Clean irit to the vial. Open the Herb pouch and you will get a Diamond root. Grind it with Pestle and Mortar. You will now have Diamond root dust. Enchant it, using level 4 Enchant, with 10 earth runes or wielding an Earth staff and 1 Cosmic rune. Note that you Cannot use an enchant diamond tablet here. Then add the Enchanted diamond root dust to the irit mixture and then add the Yeti hair.

NOTE: If you have lost your yeti hair, you don't have to kill Nial again; the smaller yetis also drop yeti hair.

  • Now you have Yeti curse cure.
  • Take it to King Vargas, and he will turn back into a human. He will now agree to attend the feast.

Brundt remembers

The grand feast.
  • One last trip to Neitiznot to tell Mawnis the good news. (If you skip this step the feast will not start)
  • Finally, travel to Rellekka and talk to Brundt the Chieftain. After showing him the Unfinished astral rune he will remember how they got to the Fishing guild.
  • A cutscene will start adding a new person called "Mysterious Mage" who turns out to be Baba Yaga of the Moon Clan. She teleported them all out of the cave to the Fishing guild, erased their memories and teleported away with the Prophecy Tablet, leaving them to argue amongst themselves where Brundt told the story the first time.
  • Now that you have made everyone happy, they all will attend the feast.

Talk to Manni the Reveller after the cutscene. Quest complete!


Additional Rewards

Baba Yaga will exchange the Unfinished astral rune for a Prophecy Tablet and an Antique Lamp. The lamp may be rubbed to gain 2500 experience in any skill level 35 or higher.

You may take the tablet to Historian Minas at the Varrock museum to receive 10 Kudos. The Prophecy Tablet will be stored in the Display case 48. This display case is located on the top floor in the museum with replicas of the 4 other tablets.


Music tracks unlocked:


The snowy-house glitch.
  • On the day of release, the spoiler read: "The spoilers have been written on some ancient and battered stone tablets, it'll take us at least a day to figure out what they actually say."
  • The word skål that is said in one of the cut scenes is a Norwegian, Swedish and Danish word that refers to cheers in English. This can also refer to a bowl in Norwegian, Swedish and Danish.
  • On the day of release, when you click ferry to Neitiznot or Jatizso; you would be ferried there straight away instead of talking to the people.
  • "Read my lips, no new taxes!" is a direct quote originally made by former U.S. president George H. W. Bush, while he was campaigning in 1988.
  • The end of the message is written in bork, language of the Swedish chef.
  • When studying the display in the museum where the prophecy tablet is, your honorific will be used.
  • During a cutscene, Prince Vargas wields a Dragon longsword like a Dragon 2h sword.
  • During cutscenes, if player tries to talk to one of characters shown on scene, Brundt the Chieftain will stop telling the story and says "Are you listening to me? Don't ask for a story and then interrupt me!"
  • It is possible to make your house appear to have been filled with snow by teleporting to it from the cave that holds Nial Swiftfling. However, when you run to the far edge of the property, you seem to float off the edge. If you run far enough, the cave disappears and your house as it normally is will reappear. This glitch has now been fixed by Jagex.
  • When you talk to King Vargas about his story, he will say "Sure, that pen you made is really handy." This is a reference to Throne of Miscellania when the player makes a giant pen so that Vargas can sign the peace treaty with Etceteria.
  • The king makes the noise of the yeti when turning after being cured
  • People have also glitched the Herb pouch and still been able to keep it after the quest, it is taken up usually during the quest. To glitch it you just need to walk away when King Vargas asks you to give the pouch to him.
  • After completing the quest, you can go back and talk to Brundt and have him repeat the three stories he told during the quest, with exactly the same dialogue and everything as you get when you are watching them for the first time.
  • Kang Admi is one of names for Yeti in Tibetian. The literal translation is Snow Man.
  • After donating the Prophecy Tablet to the Varrock Museum, the last part of the display reads "...the main feature of the fifth is the inscribed name of (your Fremennik name). Who this (your Fremennik name) might be is unknown". If you wear equipment that changes your Fremennik title (such as Fremennik Sea Boots 3 or Skeletal armour), the second time your Fremennik name is mentioned in the display, your title will be shown, thus "magically" changing what the display says according to your equipment. For example, if your Fremennik name is Tallor and you wear the Sea Boots, the display would change instantly and you would read "Who this 'Tallor Far-strider' might be is unknown" instead of just calling you "Tallor".
  • Your character will mention Lunar Island during the final flashback even if you haven't been there before.
  • After seeing the cutscene from Baba Yaga, you may appear outside her house and continue talking to her, even though she is still inside her house and therefore not visible.
