This is the whole map of Tirannwn with a useful legend and track. You should refer to the map above for reference to prevent getting lost.
Note: When doing this quest, be careful to make sure you have everything you need before setting out on a trip, as if you reach the Elven lands and realise you have forgotten something, it is a LONG way between the bank and the quest areas, even if you cut out the way back with teleports.
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE TALKED TO KING LATHAS BEFORE ENTERING THE UNDERGROUND PASS EVEN IF YOU ARE SURE YOU HAVE ALREADY STARTED THE QUEST!
Before going into the Pass, make sure you have:
Once there, you'll meet scouts of his. After that the scout will tell you something. See the separate guide for instructions about how to get through the pass.
Once you're at Iban's temple, go in. Iban will no longer be there, so you can simply climb down the Well of Voyage. You'll find an altar and a summoning obelisk there.
Note: Traps can stop your forward motion. You fall right into them and take damage. However, simply clicking on the other side of the trap and then clicking house options or a skill interface will prevent triggering of the trap. This also works on many plank traps around RuneScape and the Underground Pass.
On the way, you will encounter four different obstacles:
Dense forest You need level 56 Agility to navigate through this. You cannot get through until later in the quest when an Elf Tracker teaches you how. Dense forest cannot be failed and it acts as a shortcut inside the forest. It's also the only way to reach some areas. If your agility is 51-55 and you are using summer pies/agility potions, there a few things that would come in handy:
Leaf trap These look just like trees from above. You will see some leaves on the ground. If you step on them, you'll fall into a pit and lose 15 hp. The trap has two sides: your side and the other side. Click "jump over" on the same side of the trap that you are. Still, You may fail.
Tripwire You will see two rocks very close together. There are also four miniature crossbows pointing at them. Move your cursor between the rocks to find a tripwire, then step over. If you trigger the trap, you'll be hit double 5s and get a 2-damage poison condition.
Stick trap You'll see some sticks on the ground in a formation similar to a hurdle. Right-click "pass" on them.You will almost always fail. If you do, you'll lose 8 hp.
Go south-east of the camp until you find an Elf Tracker. He is due east of Tyras Camp in the map. He won't believe you since you're a human, so return to Lord Iorwerth to get a crystal pendant. Put it on and talk to the Tracker again. He will tell you to find the Tyras Camp.
Check the footprints to the west into the dense forest. If you are told that you see no way past then go back to the Elf Tracker and talk to him and he will tell you what you need to know to pass. You can now climb through if you have 56 agility. You need to see the tracks and follow them before you can continue. Examine the forest if you can't find the tracks.
Walk along the path, pass through the trip wire and dense forest and try to pass the dense forest to the Tyras Camp, a level 110 Tyras Guard will attack you, equipped with a steel halberd. He has a very high defence and hitpoints (comparable to Barrows) and can hit a maximum of 15 (sometimes through full Rune), but should be somewhat easy to defeat with Protect from Melee and a decent weapon or magic/Ancients. Be aware that there are not many "safe spots", and most of them his halberd can reach over. You should be able to find a safe spot behind the mushrooms to the west, giving two spaces in between you and the guard.
After you've killed him, continue on to the Tyras Camp. (If you are doing this quest with Summer Pie or Agility Potions and run out you can charter to Tyras Camp even if you didn't talk to Hining) Talk to General Hining. Be sure to grab a barrel while you are in Tyras's Camp.
Please note that you can charter a ship from Port Tyras, just south west of the Tyras Camp, even if you haven't finished the quest.
Then go back to Lord Iorwerth. He will give you the Big Book O' Bangs. Read it. You need to make an explosive compound.
If you don't have the limestone you may want to mine it now.
Making the naphtha may prone to error and each time you start the process, you need a barrel of coal-tar. Remember to wear gloves or you will take damage. A regen bracelet prevents damage as well. Other bracelets may also prevent damage. A combat bracelet, though, does not.
Then go south of the Elf Tracker until you find a poison waste swamp. Use the barrels on the poison waste to get a Barrel of coal-tar. NOTE: it is common for players to not be able to take the sulphur and tar right away. If this happens to you, try moving around the area, you'll find it sooner or later Break off a chunk of sulphur, which surrounds the area and should catch your eye easily, and grind it with your pestle and mortar to make Ground sulphur.
Teleport out of the elf kingdom (or better, take the charter ship out of Port Tyras to save some time later on) and withdraw about 20 coal from the bank. Then go to the Chemist's House near Rimmington, in Biohazard quest. Talk to the Chemist with the Big book of bangs in your inventory.
Then, click the right side of the valve to the right twice, so the tar should be flowing at maximum. You should see the 'pressure' indicator on the left go up. When the indicator reaches the green region, click the right side of the valve on the left once to let out pressure. This should stall the indicator on the left. Now you can start adding coal. This will raise the indicator on the right. If it's below the green region, add more coal. If it's above, don't add coal until it gets lower. The bar on the bottom will start turning green, when it's full you can stop adding coal and close the window on the top right to get your barrel of naphtha.
Take an empty pot with you. While wearing gloves, use a bar of limestone on any furnace in RuneScape. Quicklime should be formed. Use the quicklime with the pestle and mortar to get a Pot of quicklime. If you heat the limestone without wearing gloves, you will take up to 8 damage. Add the pot of quicklime to the naphtha. Then add the ground sulphur, this is the Barrel bomb. Use a strip of cloth on the bomb (if you didn't weave your four balls of wool yet, go to the loom at the farm north of Port Sarim and do so).
Remember to take a tinderbox! Using barbarian firemaking will not work. If you forget a tinderbox, the Quartermaster at the Tyras Camp sells one.
Now that you have the barrel bomb, go to the Elven Kingdom through the Underground Pass. If you used the charter ship out of port Tyras you can just use a ship to get here again. Remember to bring a spade, ropes, bow, fire arrows, plank (if you intend on using the Underground Pass) or 3200 coins (1600 with ring of charos), and food. When you are in the elven lands, kill a rabbit in the area in which the Elf tracker is found, to get rabbit meat. Cook it on a fire in the Elven Camp or light one on the ground. Then go to the catapult outside the Tyras Camp. Give the cooked rabbit to the non-armoured Tyras guard near the catapult to distract him. Then use the barrel bomb on the front of the catapult (you do not need to light it first, but you 'do' need a tinderbox in inventory) to initiate a cutscene and destroy the whole camp!
Go back to Lord Iowerth. He will give you a letter to take to King Lathas, then give you access to the overground pass of Arandar. Make sure you have the letter before transporting away—or you will have to run the Underground Pass or charter a ship to get there!
Take the overpass or teleport away, then go to Ardougne Castle. On the way, an elf named Arianwyn will break the magic seal on the letter and tell the player to read it.
In the letter, Lord Lowerth told King Lathas that Tyras was killed and that some dark lord could be resurrected to take over Camelot. Arianwyn further revealed the "path" being connected to Zamorak's realm, and recruits the player to their side instead. Even so, Arianwyn tells you to talk to Lathas first for your reward.
