Plague City Guide
Speak with Edmond in East Ardougne to start the quest.
Edmond tells you his daughter, a healer named Elena is missing. She went to help out in West Ardougne, a city taken by a plague, and hasn’t returned. You offer to help find Elena and bring her home.
1. Getting into West Ardougne
He tells you that Dwellberies help repel the plague, and his wife can make a gas mask with them.
Ironmen should go to Mcgrubber wood to pick up some Dwelberries. Regular players already have them.
If you already have Dwellberries, speak with Alrena, Edmonds’ wife and she’ll make you a gas mask.
Next, take the picture of Elena from the coffee table inside Edmond and Arlena’s home.
Before leaving for West Ardougne, speak with Edmond again. He will tell you to go through the sewers, and that you can access them through the mud patch in their garden.
Now use a bucket of water on the mud patch behind their house 4 times.
Then use the spade to dig into the mud patch.
You’ll wind up in the Ardougne sewers.
In here, walk south and try to open the grill.
Next, use a rope on the grill.
Now speak with Edmond who followed you down here to tell him to help you open up the grill. A cut scene will start.
Finally, Equip your gasmask and climb up the pipe.
You’ll wind up in West Ardougne.
2. Investigating Elena’s whereabouts
Speak with Jethick as Edmond instructed you. He is located just East of the manhole.
He tells you that the king is an explorer, and likely brought the Plague home through one of his expeditions. The king is currently on another expedition and left the City Warder Bravek in charge of West Ardougne. You’ll show him the picture of Elena and he’ll tell you where you can find her. He’ll also ask you to return a book for him.
Run North to the Rehnisons’ house.
Here, speak with Martha. She’ll tell you Elena used to stay with them but hasn’t been seen.
Speak with her daughter, Milli, upstairs. She says Elena has been kidnapped.
3. Saving Elena
Next, run to the house in the south-eastern corner of West Ardougne.
A mourner will explain that the black cross indicates the house has been taken by the plague.
Run back to the manhole and look for a Clerk inside the big building in the center. Speak with him.
Next, speak with Bravek.
He hands you a tattered piece of paper.
Use your chocolate dust on your bucket of milk and then use snapegrass on it to make hangover cure.
Speak with Bravek again. He’ll give you a warrant to access the mourners house you tried to access earlier.
Go back to the mourners house.
Once inside, search the barrel next to the staircase to find a key.
Go downstairs and you’ll find Elena. Open the door and speak with her.
You’ve successfully saved her. Return to Edmond by going through the manhole and climbing up the mudpile to Edmonds house.
And your quest is complete!
