Phoenix Gang



Starting Out


Speak to Reldo who is located in the Varrock Castle Library and ask him for a quest. He will tell you to look in a book titled "The Shield of Arrav" for a quest. Look at the bookcases carefully and pick out the one with the dark blue book. Now read or skim through the book. Speak to Reldo again to find out where the gang is located. He isn't exactly sure but he thinks that Baraek the fur trader, located right outside the castle walls, might know.


Speak to Baraek and ask him if he knows the location of the Phoenix Gang. He will require you pay him 20 gold coins for this. He will then tell you the location of the hideout.

Phoenix Hideout


Go speak to Straven who is down the ladder guarding the door into the hideout. He says that if you want to join you will need to prove that you are willing to work for the gang. There is a member from the opposing gang that has some information that the gang wants in an intel report. Go kill Johnny the Beard at the Blue Moon Inn to retrieve this report. Take the report back to Straven and he will allow you to join and will give you a key to their weapons storage and access to the hideout. Now go to south-west room in the hideout and search the chest. You will find one half of the Shield of Arrav.



Finishing Up


Give the Weapon storage key to your partner so they can get the crossbows, then wait for them to get their half of the shield and go with your partner to King Roald in the Varrock Castle. He will tell you to get it authenticated from the Varrock Museum. "Use" the shield on Curator Haig Halen. After your partner has given the other half to the Curator, trade your partner, and both put up your certificate halves.
Use one certificate on the other to get the whole certificate, and go back to the King to claim your reward.

Starting

Tell her you want to become a member of their gang. Ask her if she can't give you a try, and she'll finally a agree on one condition.

Crossbows


She'll ask you to get two crossbows from their rival's - the Phoenix Gang's - weapons stash. You'll ask why two, and she tells you her plan to frame the Phoenix gang. Agree to get them, and she'll tell you it's next to the Zamorak Temple in south-east Varrock. If you go there, you'll get a message saying you'll need help from another adventurer.

Have your partner trade you the Weapon store key, go in, and kill the Weapons master. in there, and take the crossbows. Go back to Katrine and give them to her.
