In today’s OSRS quest guide I’m going to show you how to complete the OSRS Swan Song quest. During the OSRS Swan Song quest, you will have the honor to partner with the Wise Old Man, sadly this will be for the first and last time because this will be his final adventure.
Both you and the Wise Old Man will have to help the Piscatoris Fishing Colony which is threatened by the angry sea trolls.

The Wise Old Man
To start this quest you need to go to the Piscatoris Fishing Colony entrance and at the quest sign talk to Herman Caranos. If you can use the Piscatoris teleport scroll you can go to the Piscatoris Fishing Colony by using the fairy ring code AKQ. When you agree to help him, the quest will start.
He will ask you to find the Wise Old Man of Draynor Village and secure his services. Agree to this, and go to Draynor Village. Talk to the Wise Old Man, after you offer him to join you in this quest he will tell you that he requires 10 lava runes, 10 mist runes, and 5 blood runes before he will help you.
If you have all the items in your inventory he will automatically take them from you and will teleport to the Fishing Colony. Follow him and also go to the Fishing Colony, you will find the Wise Old Man in the same spot where you talk to Herman Caranos.
The Wise Old Man will ask, are you ready to fight? tell him that you are and enter into the tunnel to go to the other side of the fence. You will be attacked by eight Sea trolls which you need to kill, the Wise Old Man will help you by casting Saradomin Strike on the trolls.
Keep in mind that he will have a limit of 10 spells before he runs out of runes, you can “use” blood, air, and fire runes on the Wise Old Man during the fight to give him more runes. But you will be able to give him only one rune at a time which can slow you down and the trolls will keep attacking you.
After you kill all the trolls, open the gate and go inside the Colony. Next, go to the most eastern building of the Colony and talk to Herman Caranos. Herman will thank you for bringing the Wise Old Man with you, and he will tell you to help with the defences of the Colony.
Repairing the Colony
Now head back towards the entrance of the Colony and you will find there Franklin. Talk to him and he will say that they need 5 sheets of iron to patch the western wall. At the end of the conversation with Franklin he will give you a tinderbox, so make sure that you have one empty inventory slot.
Go to the building with the furnace sign, and use your logs on the Firebox east end of the press then use the tinderbox and light them. Then, use your iron bars with the press to make iron sheets. Tell Franklin that you have the sheets, and he will give you a hammer, with which you can repair the walls to the west.
Head towards the western wall and you will see a red line on the wall in your mini-map. This is the area of the wall that you need to fix, use your iron sheets on the broken parts of the wall to fix them. Now you need to go to the building with the bank sign and talk to Arnold Lydspor.
He will tell you that the Fishing Colony has no food and that he needs five cooked fresh monkfish. He will give you a small fishing net with which to catch fresh monkfish. The fishing spot is located in the north-west. The trolls will spawn each time you try to fish, so catch a few extra as you may burn the fish.
You must kill these trolls to continue fishing. When you have caught the fresh monkfish, you can cook all of them on a cooking range to the south. When you have five cooked fresh monkfish, take them to Arnold. If you burn some, you can give him the cooked ones and go back to fish for more.
Raising an Army
Go back to Franklin and talk to him to report that you have fixed the wall. Next, go to Herman Caranos and the Wise Old Man, talk to Hermen and he will tell you that they need an army to fight and defeat the Sea trolls once and for all. The Wise Old Man tells you to visit Wizard Frumscone, in the basement of the Wizards’ Guild.
Teleport to Yanille by using whatever method you prefer, for example, you can use the minigame teleport to the Nightmare Zone, but keep in mind that you will need to leave the area of the Colony through the tunnel first. Once you are in Yanille go to Wizard Guild (aka Magic Guild) in the center of the village.
Next to the door on the south side you should see a ladder, climb down that ladder and talk to Wizard Frumscone. Ask him to help you collect an army for the Fishing Colony, but he will tell you that his zombies are not for loan and refuse to help you. Frumscone will also say that he knows a man who can help you get an army.
Before you go to the necromancer in search of an army, teleport to Falador or Draynor Village whichever you prefer, and quickly go to the bank. From the bank, you will need a pot and a pot lid as well as 7 bones, 1 prayer potion, weapon, armor, and good food for the boss fight.
Make sure that you have one empty inventory slot, and go to the necromancer located south of Falador and slightly north-west of the Port Sarim magic shop. Keep in mind that if you are wearing something related to the three basic gods of OSRS, Malignius Mortifer (aka the necromancer) will not talk to you, so you should unequip those items.
Talk to Malignius Mortifer (the one in the black robes) and tell him that you need help saving the fishing colony. He will agree to help you and give the Colony an army of undead skeletal magi. But first, he will need you to give him 7 bones and then he will tell you that you also need some way of carrying the seeds that he will give you.
Also, you should go to the Crafting Guild to ask the master crafters for advice. Then he will give you a brown apron, which will allow you access to the guild. Now go north-west to the Crafting Guild and equip your brown apron and enter the guild. Talk to the Master craftsmen (the one with dreadlocks and no skill cape) about how to store the seeds.
He will tell you that you need a pot with a pot lid (which you already have). If you don’t have a pot with a pot lid, mine two pieces of clay in the Guild mine. Use the jug in the northern end of the Guild filled with water from the sink to the south to soften the clay, and then shape them on the potter’s wheel. Fire them in the pottery oven.
The Final Battle
Now, return to Malignius with your pot and pot lid, and he will teleport you to the Fishing Colony. After entering the Colony and talking to Herman Caranos, you will be shown a cutscene of your army of Skeleton Mages defeating the Sea trolls and then the Wise Old Man killing the levelless Sea Troll General.
However, while he is celebrating, he gets hit for 254 damage and he will be disabled for the rest of the fight, so you must take on the Sea Troll Queen yourself. When the cutscene is over, use protection from magic and attack her with Melee.
The Queen uses the Magic attack Water Wave, a Prayer-draining attack, and a basic Melee attack. Meleeing the queen is your best choice because that way she will not use her prayer draining attack. After defeating the queen, talk to Herman to finish the quest.
