Aubury's Runes

This part of the game takes place between Ali's stall in the Al Kharid desert and Aubury's Rune Shop in Varrock.

After speaking to Ali Morrisane, travel to Aubury's Rune Shop, south of the east bank in Varrock. Speak to Aubury about Ali's business proposition. He should agree to send a supply of runes to Ali. Travel back down to Ali and he will have received the supplies.

There are two caskets: one small and one large. In order to first buy runes from Ali Morrisane, you must open at least one of the caskets. If you open the basic chest you can buy the basic runes, if you open the advanced chest you can buy the advanced runes. There are three options to open each casket, you can either pick the lock, examine the lock to solve the sudoku puzzle or force the lock. The small casket is simple enough to pick, or you may want to try and solve the 4 x 4 sudoku puzzle to practice.

The large casket is much trickier. You cannot open it by simply picking the lock, you have to solve the 9 x 9 sudoku puzzle.

Rules Of Sudoku

The aim of sudoku is to fill a square grid with chosen numbers or objects so that no object or number is repeated vertically or horizontally, but not diagonally. This version is no different - you must place various types of runes into the square grid, and follow these simple rules. Additionally, you have to make sure that only one of each type of rune is in a coloured square (yellow or orange).

Both puzzles have unmovable runes.

To place a rune on the board, click on the runes on the side, then select the square on the board where you would like to position it. Fortunately, if you find you have made a mistake along the way, you can remove a single rune by selecting the remove button (the red circle with the red cross through it) and clicking on the runes that you wish to remove.

Siamun's Clothes

This part of the game takes place between Ali's stall in the Al Kharid desert and Siamun's clothes shop in Sophanem.

From Ali Morrisane, travel south to Sophanem and speak to Siamun. Tell him about Ali's proposition. He will ask you to bring him either three dyes or three animal pelts (either wool, fur or hide).

The Blackjack Seller

This part of the game takes place from Ali's stall in the Al Kharid desert and to the Blackjack seller in Pollnivneach.

After speaking to Ali Morrisane, travel south-east to Pollnivneach and speak to the Blackjack seller. Tell him of Ali's proposition.

For attack blackjacks, you want to convince the Blackjack Seller to go into business with Ali. Challenge him to try and knock you out using one of his blackjacks. If you are still standing after the second club to the head, then the seller will agree to make these blackjacks.

For defence blackjacks, choose not to challenge the Seller and choose the 'cunning plan' option, a street urchin will call to you. Talk to the street urchin and he will offer to steal from the Blackjack Seller if you give him 100 coins. Once he has stolen it, the Blackjack Seller will agree to supply the blackjacks.

Rewards

Runes

Once the board is filled and you think you have solved the puzzle, click on the 'open casket' button. If you are correct, a message will appear and you will have the option of buying all of the runes in that casket for a price, or you could look at the runes available and buy them at regular shop price.

Once you have opened both of the caskets once, you do not need to do the puzzles again. However, if you want the option to buy all the rune stock for a set price from the large casket, then you will have to complete the puzzle again.

Buying the large amount of runes for the set price, when you unlock the large casket is a good idea. The amount of runes that you receive for this price will be cheaper than buying the same amount of runes elsewhere. However, you have to remember that you do not know what runes you will get in this bulk amount, so some players may wish to view the prices of the runes available first, then buy them.

The small casket only contains the four elemental runes: fire, water, air and earth. The large casket will contain the other nine runes. The combination runes are not available in these caskets.

To switch between the different clothes stocks for Ali, go to Siamun again and give him his required items depending on what stock you require.

Blackjacks

After securing the deal with the Blackjack Seller, go back to Ali and he will have a stock of blackjacks ready and available to you to buy. Depending on how you approached the third task, you will find different blackjacks available to you.

Attack Blackjacks

If you choose to get the supply of Attack blackjacks, you will have this choice of blackjacks.

Please note that the damage and life bonus values will be divided by 10 (and rounded down) when using the Legacy combat system.
