To begin the quest, first speak with Maggie, who is located in Draynor Village with Wendy and her two skeleton oxen, Babe and Norman. She wants you to help her finish cooking her goulash in her cauldron but since she has to take care of her two skeleton oxen, she cannot finish the task by herself. She'll ask you to get her broomstick to be enchanted by her three friends: Betty in Port Sarim, Hetty at Rimmington, and Aggie in Draynor Village. You can go to them in any order.
Speak to Hetty in Rimmington and she'll gladly enchant the broom for you with her broom ointment but first, she needs a newt from her basement to finish the ointment. Go down to her basement through the trapdoor outside and talk to the delivery ghoul, Gus. He'll give you a newt but here's the problem: all of the boxes are mislabeled and wants you to label the boxes correctly before you can get the newt. He'll give you the labels to relabel the boxes. The boxes are labeled "toads", "newts", and "newts and toads" and you can only choose one sample from the boxers.
A really easy way to solve this puzzle is to check the box labeled "newts and toads" and if you get a newt, label the box newts and so on for toads. Since all of the boxes are mislabeled, you can simply switch the labels for the other two boxes. Gus thanks you and allows you to get a newt from the newt box. Get one and give it to Hetty. She'll give you the ointment so you use it on the broom.
Speak to Betty in her shop at Port Sarim and she'll tell you to talk to her assistant Lottie in her basement to get her magical wand for the enchantment. The problem is that her menagerie is all disorganized since most of the animals are located in the wrong pen. Lottie wil lgive you a magic slate that will help you keep track on where each animal is where. The animals can only be moved from one cage to an adjacent one and no two animals can stay at the same pen.
Simply put the blackbird in the holding pen, then put the rat in the blackbird pen. Put the spider in the spiders pen next then put the lizard in the reptile pen. Put the rat in the rat pen and finally, put the blackbird in the blackbird pen. You can now open the chest and get the wand for the enchantment. Betty will now enchant the broom for you.
Lastly, speak to Aggie in Draynor Village. She will enchant the broom for you after she teleports you to a special place and asks you to solve the puzzle to be able to enchant it. The puzzle is basically several lines resembling many triangles. The goal is to sweep four lines and still end up with four triangles. There are only two solutions for this and both of them should have two triangles at the top side and two at the bottom. Once you find the solution, the broom is enchanted and talk to Aggie to teleport you back to Draynor Village.
Once you have all three of them enchant the broomstick, bring it back to Maggie. Since you've went through the trouble of enchanting the broom, she'll allow you to stir the cauldron with the broom. Stir it and talk to Maggie again and you'll get a bowl to drink the goulash with. She'll even allow you to keep the broomstick.
