Step 1: Talking to Reldo


Talk to Reldo in the Varrock library. Tell him that you are looking for a quest and will refer you to a book about the "Shield of Arrav". Search the bookcase in the north-west corner of the room to obtain the book.

Read it then speak to Reldo again. He will ask you to speak to Baraek the fur trader found in the Varrock Square to find out more about the Phoenix gang.

You will have the option of joining either The Phoenix gang or the Black arm gang.

Joining the Phoenix gang


Go talk to Baraek in the Varrock square and ask him about the Phoenix gang. He will ask you 20 coins for more information. Pay him 20 coins then he will tell you that there is a base East of the south gate of varrock and that they are known as the "VTAM Corporation"

Look for a small room that has a stair that lead to an underground room and go down the ladder.

You'll end up in a small room with a man. Talk to him and tell him you know who they are and what they are doing and that you would like to join the gang.

He will ask you to prove yourself to be worthy of being in the gang so he will ask you to go kill Jonny the beard at the Blue Moon inn south of Varrock General store.

Go to the Blue Moon inn and kill Jonny the beard. He will drop a scroll which you have to bring back to the man you just spoke to in the previous step.

He will give you a key to the Phoenix Gang's weapon cache and permit to enter their hideout. Enter the hideout and go to the South Eastern room. Open the chest and search it to obtain the left half of the broken shield. Go to the "Completing the shield part" to find out how to finish the quest.

Joining the Black Arm gang


After reading the book in the Varrock library, head south west of the General Store and talk to the tramp. Ask him what is down the alleyway and he will tell you that the Black Arm gang base is found there.

Ask if you can join the gang and he will tell you to talk to a woman named Katrine. Go down the alley and enter the building.


Talk to Katrine about the Black Arm gang and ask her to join. She will ask you to steal two Phoenix crossbows from the Phoenix gang which she'll use to murder somebody.

The crossbows are found in the Phoenix gang weapon stash around the East end of Varrock.

To complete this part, you will need someone from the Phoenix gang to help you out. Go East from the Black Arm gang building until you see a small room with a ladder leading to a second floor. The door will be locked . For this part, you will have to trade a Phoenix gang member for their key they got in their respective steps. 

Once you have the key, use it on the door and go to the second floor. If you try to steal the crossbow found in this room, the weaponmaster will attack you unless someone is talking to him. If nobody is distracting him, you must kill him. If you are low level, food might become handy.

Once the weaponmaster is dead, take two Phoenix crossbows and return to Katrine who will make you a Black Arm gang member. Go upstairs and search the cupboard to find the right half of the broken shield. Go to the "Completing the shield part" to find out how to finish the quest.

Completing the shield


To complete the quest, find a player who is in the opposite gang with the other part of the shield that you are missing. One of the player will have to trade his half with the other player to complete the shield. Once the shield is complete, head to the curator with that player to turn in the shield. He will give that player two certificate. The player with the certificates must trade one  of the certificate to the other player.

Go talk to the King in the Varrock Palace and you will earn your reward.

*If you try to turn in a certificate without completing any of the steps to join a gang, the quest will not be completed.
