Maggie the travelling witch is cooking up something spectacular in her cauldron, but she needs a little help finishing it off. If you can help her out -- and solve a puzzle or two along the way -- she just might share some of the final product with you.

Starting Out

Talk to Maggie. She tells you she's brewing something. She needs help finishing her brew, but she can't leave her oxen alone.

Maggie will give you her broomstick, wanting you to take it to three witches to enchant it. Bring it to Hetty in Rimmington, Aggie in Draynor, and Betty in Port Sarim to fully enchant it.

Aggie in Draynor Village

Talk to Aggie in Draynor. She teleports you to a clearing. There are 16 lines on the ground, you need to remove only 4 of them, and leave only 4 small triangles. Solve the puzzle, and ask for Aggie to teleport you back to Draynor.

Betty in Port Sarim

Talk to Betty in Port Sarim Magic Shop. She asks you to get her wand from the chest in her basement. Walk down the trapdoor, and talk to Lottie, Betty's assistant. She tells you about the enchantment on the chest that prevents you from getting the wand without all the creatures being in the proper place.

Hetty in Rimmington

Talk to Hetty in Rimmington. She tells you she needs a newt from her basement. Head down into the basement, and talk to the delivery ghoul, Gus.

He tells you that there are three crates -- one contains newts, one contains toads, and one contains both. He tells you once you get all three crates labled correctly, you can have a newt.

Pull an item from the Newts and Toads crate. Label it with either the Newt label or the Toad label, depending on what you pull.

Now, label the other two crates. Remember, that you cannot use a label on a crate if the crate already has that label.

Take a newt from the newt-only crate, and bring it back to Hetty. She will give you Broom ointment. Use the Broom ointment on the broom, and head back to Maggie.

Finishing Up

Talk to Maggie, and tell her you have enchanted the broomstick for her. She tells you to stir the cauldron with the enchanted broom. Once you stir the broom, talk to her again. Quest Complete!
