Sir Amik Varze

Sir Amik Varze

To start this quest, talk to Sir Amik Varze on the second floor of the White Knights Castle in Falador. Tell him you are seeking a quest and he'll say he needs some spy work done. The Black Knights at the Black Knights' Fortress are threatening to invade Falador with a secret weapon, and Sir Amik Varze wants you to find out what it is and sabotage it.

The cabbage patch at the Monastery.

Gathering the materialsEdit

Before heading to the Black Knights' Fortress, you'll need a cabbage, Medium Bronze Helmet, and an Iron Chain Mail Body.

Cabbage can be picked up near Lumbridge or near the Monastery. Do not pick up cabbage from Draynor Manor as this cabbage does not work in the quest. You can buy a Medium Bronze Helmet from Peksa in Barbarian Village and an Iron Chain Mail Body from Horvik the Armourer in Varrock or Wayne in Falador.

Once you have these three items, head to the Black Knights' Fortress, located on the north side of Ice Mountain and west of the Monastery.

Infiltrating the fortressEdit

Black Knights Fortress 1

Listening at the grill.

When you try to enter the fortress you'll notice the southern door is locked. The guards won't let you in the eastern door either because you don't look like them. Equip your Medium Bronze Helmet and Iron Chain Mail Body and walk right in. Once inside, go through the odd looking wall to the north and climb up the ladder.

In this room, you'll notice a grill in the west end. Right-click it and select "listen" to listen to a conversation between a goblin named Greldo, a Witch, and a Black Knight. You'll hear them talking about an invincibility potion they're making which is missing the last ingredient, cabbage from Draynor Manor. However, any other cabbage will destroy the potion, which is your goal.


Climb back down the ladder, pass through the odd looking wall, and enter the room west of you with the three Black Knights. Go through the room and go up the stairs leading to the second floor. You need to fight the Black Knights to get through the room so bring a good weapon and armour. You have to kill all of the knights in the room before the first one respawns in order to get through the door. Potions and attacking with both Magic and Melee are highly recommended if your character has a low Combat level. You can also get all three knights down to very little Hits and then try to open door.

Now climb the ladder to the top floor. Go through the odd looking wall to the north and use your cabbage on the hole. Be very careful not to eat the cabbage. You will hear the Witch "groan in dismay", revealing that the potion has been destroyed. Return to Falador and talk to Sir Amik Varze to receive your reward, completing the quest.
