Skill boosts

If a skill level is not high enough to complete a certain task, temporary boosts may be available to raise it to allow completion. See skills for more information. Spicy stew are giving -6 to +6 skill boost based on luck. (A skill boost +6 is chance of 1/60) If using spicy stew it is highly recommended to train for the extra level because a +5 boost is more common (1/20).

Tips

  • When buying a candle, make sure it is a WHITE candle, as black candles will not complete the task.
  • To save time, 5 flax can be picked first and spun later, or done at the same time.
  • Buy cider from the bar under Miscellania (Fairy code: C-I-P) for 2 coins each (after the Royal Trouble quest.)
  • The cider may be used on the same person 5 times, without having to run around.
  • When walking around the statue make sure that your run is off, to make the task easier. It is more difficult to run around the statue without pausing if you are running.
  • Also when walking around the statue, start at one corner then click on the corner diagonal to it; continue this process to make it a lot easier.
Seers' headband equipped.

Rewards

  • Seers' headband 1. When worn, it allows you to:
    • Use in place of Light source.
    • Talk to Geoffrey in the flax field to claim 30 free flax per day.
    • Be given an extra log when cutting normal trees anywhere ( However you only get experience for 1).
  • An antique lamp - 1,000 experience in any chosen skill, above level 30.
  • Coal trucks will now hold 140 coal.

Items needed: Pickaxe, big fishing net, longbow, Bronze arrows, Pyrelord pouch (or Forge regent pouch), Battered key, fishbowl, seaweed (from Arhein for 2 coins), 10 coins (for Tiny net), a few Camelot teleports (recommended)

Talk to Thormac the Sorcerer about making mystic staves. Scorpion Catcher None None
Transport a full load of coal to Seers' Village. None 30 Alternatively the coal can be taken from your bank into the nearest coal truck you can deposit into, this negates the need for 30 mining. A full load is 120 coal, even when wearing the Seers' Headband 1. The fastest method is to carry the coal to the coal trucks in the small building close to Seer Village's bank.
Find the highest point in Seers' Village. One Small Favour None The highest point is at the top of the house with the Spinning wheel. Finishing One Small Favour is not required, but you must do about 3/4 of it.

Teleport to Camelot. None 45 The Camelot teleport tablets do not work for this task neither will a poh portal.
Kill one tower archer on each tower of the Ranging Guild using a longbow. None 40 All 4 archers must be defeated in one go (i.e. must kill each archer before going down ladder). Bring a half dozen good foods to heal like Lobster or better or a Prayer Potion to restore your prayer if using Protection from Range Attacks.

While the final blow to each archer must be done with a regular longbow (Willow, Yew, etc. do not work), which means at most iron arrows, you can "soften them up" with any bow+arrow combination you wish. Poison arrows are allowed.

Have the Ranging Guild competition judge congratulate you for acquiring over 1,000 Archery tickets. None 40 Bring some coins for the entrance fee (200 coins per game). Players with a high Ranged level with good bonuses, may likely play about 15 games before obtaining 1,000 tickets so bring 3,000 to 4,000 gp with you to pay for the multiple tries it will take. Lower-level players may have to play closer to 30 games, so bring 6,000 gp. (Tip: Try to buy 999 tickets from other players or the Grand Exchange, and then earn 1 ticket from the game.)
Buy something from the ticket exchange in the Ranging Guild. None 40 The Coif is the cheapest at 100 tickets.
Use a familiar to make a fire from maple logs within Seers' Village. Wolf Whistle 46 , 45 A pyrelord or a forge regent can be used.
Get a pet fish from Harry. None None Tiny net (bought from Harry, at a cost of 10 coins each) - You must first fill a fishbowl with water, use seaweed (from Arhein for 2 coins) with the water-filled fishbowl, and then talk to Harry or you won't receive the option to buy the tiny net.
Catch and cook a bass in Catherby. None 46 , 43 Use a big net to catch the bass, and the range next to the bank.

Tips

  • The "Killing one guard in each tower" task will only be completed if a regular wood longbow is used. You can use only bronze or iron arrows. Protection prayer may be used.
  • The "Killing one guard in each tower" task must also be completed without leaving the tower. If the player leaves at any time, the previous kills will not be counted.
  • Longbow and Bronze arrows are both on sale at Dargaud's Bows and Arrows inside the Ranging Guild.
  • It is possible to bring the coal from Seers' Village bank to the closest coal truck, if you already have 120 coal. This will save the time taken to mine the coal.

Also you may use a chef's delight if you have a cooking level of 76 or higher, but you may not use the assist system for cooking the shark.
Charge five water orbs in one go None 56 File:Magic-icon.png The player must use the standard Magic spellbook and cast a Charge Water Orb on the water obelisk using 150 Water rune, 15 cosmic rune and 5 unpowered orbs. On the way there are level 64 poison spiders, their poison can halt your orb making, resulting in orbs being made but the Achievement not being completed. Therefore bring an anti-poison potion.

36 File:Agility-icon.png
39 File:Ranged-icon.png

Trivia

  • When given the poison chalice , King Arthur replies: You chose ...poorly. This is an Indiana Jones reference to the Holy grail.
  • Geoffrey was released with the diary and can be located in the Flax field.
  • If players talk to Geoffrey and get flax with a lower level headband, then get a higher level headband on the same day, they cannot obtain any additional flax until the following day.
  • On the day of release, the spoilers were: Spoilers do not fit with the Seers' desire to predict the future more... esoterically. Please check back tomorrow.
  • If players had completed the Holy Grail quest before talking to Galahad, the player will automatically exclaim: I've returned the Holy grail to Camelot and Galahad will congratulate the player. The same exchange could happen before the diary, as a player-chosen interaction option.
  • On the day of release skill boosts such as a spicy stew could not be used to cook the sharks, as of 27 January 2009 they can.
  • While giving you the first headband, the seer mentions that Geoffrey prefers to be called "Flax".
