In this OSRS Goblin Diplomacy Guide, we’ll go through all the steps to complete the quest.

This guide is a part of our OSRS Optimal Quest Guide.

Goblin Diplomacy Story & Info

General Bentnoze and General Wartface have an ongoing dispute about the color of their amour (goblin mail). The dispute is so bad, they are on the brink of a civil war. Once you enter the Goblin Village, you’ll notice they are already fighting. It’s your job to end this dispute.

During the quest, you’ll be tasked with bringing them an Orange, Blue, and Default goblin mail. They will model on one of their servants and eventually come to the conclusion that the default goblin mail is the way to go.

This quest requires some running around for ironmen, but players with access to the Grand Exchange can skip every step by purchasing the dyes and goblin mail beforehand.

OSRSGuide Recommendation:

Use the Quest Helper Plugin for Runelite.

The Quest Helper Plugin makes Questing TONS easier.

  • Helps keep track of the item requirements and whether you have them on you or not
  • Displays a quest guide in the sidebar
  • Highlights NPCs you need to talk to
  • Knows which dialogue you need to use during the quest
  • Shows the next location in the quest on your map

If you want to install it, you can install the Quest Helper directly from your Plugin Hub on Runelite.
