The wish list on the shack is listed in the quest log for Fur 'n' Seek. As each bone is obtained, the following is added after its listing: (I have an unprepared one with me.) If item is banked, the sentence changes to (I have an unprepared one in my bank.). All acquired dragon tail-bones are also listed. As each bone is prepared with vinegar and fire, the word 'unprepared' is removed. As each bone is given to the Odd Old Man, that quest log entry is removed.
None of the bone drops are 100%, but they are fairly common.
No more than 40 kills should be required for any special bone.
The monsters you need to kill are mentioned on the wish list.
There are 20 bones to collect for the wish list.
There is 1 other non-bone item to collect for the wish list.
Tactics: Once in the dungeon, you can kill the moss giants which are located near the front of the dungeons, or the Fire giants on the upper level. Once you venture further in, you can kill red dragons. You should then go deeper into the dungeon and kill the three metal dragons located here.
Tactics: It is recommended to first switch on protect from melee and kill the Big snake on Crash Island. Then, continue towards Ape Atoll and attack the monkey guard using protect from melee and a high-hitting weapon.
Travel method: Run from the Fremennik Province lodestone, or use the Enchanted lyre. Players can get to the caves via Fairy ring code AJR, or to the Rellekka Hunter area from code DKS. The Slayer ring teleport to the Rellekka slayer caves also can be used very effectively. A Mask of the Aquanites can teleport directly to the aquanite chamber.
Tactics: Before entering the caves, ensure that you buy the golden fleece from Lalli for 1000 coins. Lalli is located near the golden apple tree. Upon venturing into the caves, it is recommended to bring ranged equipment to kill the turoth and the aquanite. You can obtain the teeth from the Hunter area by catching either a sabre-toothed kebbit with a deadfall trap or a sabre-toothed kyatt with a pitfall trap. Alternatively, you can visit Waterbirth Island and kill the Wallasalkis there for the teeth.
Travel methods: Players can get there via the Fairy ring DIP (you need to repair two bridges) or Empty ectophial and walk west from Port Phasmatys. The Ring of slaying teleports directly to the Slayer Tower, and the Canifis lodestone is also close by.
Tactics: Once you are on Mos Le'Harmless, walk out of the main town and head south-east until you reach the caves and kill a cave horror. If you don't need to fight the cave horror (because you plan to fight a Monkey Guard), then you can skip this step and proceed to the slayer tower and kill the crawling hands, which are extremely easy to kill.
Tactics: If you have not obtained the shoulder bone yet, you can kill hill giants in the southern area of the dungeon, just before the Black Knight headquarters. Blue dragons can be found in the area behind the gate requiring the dusty key, as well as in the adjoining resource dungeon (requires 60 Dungeoneering). Black dragons can be found in the north-west area of the dungeon, past the Monks of Zamorak. Be sure to bring dragonfire protection when fighting the dragons for their bones.
Travel method: Run north from Varrock or northeast from Edgeville. Teleport to Daemonheim and run southwest into the Wilderness. Once in the Wilderness, run north.
Tactics: The Wilderness should only be used if there is no other alternative available. Decent armour and food are vital to survive from player killers. Dragonfire protection is also essential. Kill the hill giants (if you need to) nearby in level 20 wilderness. Then walk slightly north-east and kill the green dragons located nearby. You can then walk north and head to Red dragon isle if you need to kill a red dragon. It is strongly recommended to fight red dragons at Brimhaven Dungeon. Green dragons can be replaced with Brutal green dragons in the trip to the Ancient Cavern to kill the Mithril dragon.
Tactics: Teleport to Barbarian Assault and run south to the whirlpool, and jump into it to enter the Ancient Cavern. Drink any potions you need and descend the steps into the main area. If you have not killed a green dragon during the Wilderness section (which is not recommended), kill the brutal green dragons until you obtain the green-dragon-tail-bone, and then ascend the steps to the south of the way you entered and kill a mithril dragon. It is recommended to use magic for the mithril dragons, which are weak to earth spells and have fairly high defence.
After you have obtained and polished all the bones (using the earlier method), the old man will summon a Skeletal horror, a level 91 monster, to the platform north-east of him. You do not need to add the golden fleece to a pot of vinegar. Also, you must have completed the Rag and Bone Man wish list in order to make the Skeletal horror spawn.
The monster loses bones as you battle it. You must quickly collect these bones and bury them to weaken the monster. If you don't collect them, the fallen bones crawl back to the monster and restore its life. Use the Protect from Melee prayer and you should have no trouble with it.
After defeating the monster, you will have finished the miniquest, and can talk to the Odd Old Man to receive your reward.
The Skeletal horror can be fought once a week, giving Slayer and Prayer experience
