Dragon Slayer is an F2P Runescape quest for gold4rs hunters, and is regarded as the most difficult of all F2P quests. Once successfully completed, players will gain the ability to equip the rune platebody and its variants, the blue d’hide body and its variants, and the batwing torso. Read the article to find out more about Thalzar’s map piece.
How to Obtain Thalzar’s Map Piece
There are a few items you will need for this next part of the quest: an unfired bowl, a Wizard’s Mind Bomb, a lobster pot or a crayfish cage, and silk—all of which you can purchase off with cheap Runescape gold. You will travel to the Ice Mountain, west of Edgeville and north of Falador.
The Oracle and the Riddle
Once you have reached the Ice Mountain, climb to the northern-most part of the mountain and speak to the Oracle, who is standing beside a tent. She will speak to you in a riddle, which when deciphered, answers the location to where Thalzar’s map piece is:
“The map’s behind a door below,
but entering is rather tough
This is what you need to know,
You must use the following stuff:
First, a drink used by a mage,
Next, some worm string changed to a sheet,
Then, a small crustacean cage,
Last, a bowl that’s not seen heat.”
First Things First
In order to obtain this piece of the map, again, you will need an unfired bowl, a Wizard Mind Bomb which you can buy in Falador for 3 rsgold, a lobster pot or a crayfish cage which you can buy in Port Sarim or Lumbridge fishing shop, and a piece of silk which you can get from the silk trader in Al Kharid at the cost of 3 cheap rs gold (or 2 if you bargain successfully). In the event that you’re a bit short on coins (which is unlikely at this point), you can always buy Runescape gold.
To the Dwarven Mines
After you have all these items, make your way down into the Dwarven Mines, just northeast of the Falador lodestone. The mine contains a room with a sealed entrance door in the northeast part of the area, just north of the scorpions. Once you’ve found it, use all the items on the Magical Door. Note that you must use the Wizard’s Mind Bomb with the door, as the left-click action will make you drink it. When you open the chest inside the room, you will get the following message written by Thalzar:
“Here I rest the map to my beloved home. To whoever finds it, I beg of you, let it be. I was honor-bound not to destroy the map piece, but I have used all of my magical skill to keep it from being recovered. This map leads to the lair of the beast that destroyed my home, devoured my family, and burned to a cinder all that I love. But revenge would not benefit me now, and to disturb this beast is to risk bringing its wrath down upon another land. I cannot stop you from taking this map piece now, but think on this: if you can slay the Dragon of Crandor, you are a greater hero than my land ever produced. There is no shame in backing out now.”
Search the chest after reading the message in order to retrieve Thalzar’s map piece. You can now either obtain either Melzar’s map piece or Lozar’s map piece.
