Location of Urhney

A good inventory for this quest, if the player is low-leveled.

To start the quest, simply talk to the priest who can be found in the church located east of the Lumbridge Castle. Ask the priest for a quest, and he will give you one.

Go behind the castle head south into the Lumbridge Swamp. In the southeast area, you'll come upon a small house. Go inside the house and talk to Father Urhney. After some talking, he will give you an Amulet of Ghostspeak.

Note: The player may use the drop trick to receive multiple amulets before completing the quest. It is not obtainable after the quest.

Now, head back into Lumbridge and go to the graveyard near the church. Go into the small house with a coffin inside. Open the coffin if it is not opened already and make sure to wear the Amulet of Ghostspeak. Talk to the ghost wandering around. He will tell you that he is missing his skull because a warlock has come along to steal the skull, and would like you to get it back for him.

Head to the Wizards' Tower south of Draynor Village, and climb down the ladder. There you will find a skull lying on the ground. However, a skeleton (level 19) will appear and attack the player the first time they try to grab it. You do not have to kill the skeleton, and can simply flee the fight after the required 3 rounds of combat.

Once you have acquired the skull, return to the graveyard in Lumbridge and use the skull on the coffin. The ghost will vanish and then the quest will be complete!
