Good armour, food and weapons for melee and another combat style. In order to save inventory space, the use of hybrid armour may be recommended for mid-to-high-level players, such as Warpriest armour. Alternatively, the use of power armour, tank armour, or items that boost life points in order to increase a player's damage/defence is recommendable.
For this quest, prioritise the use of combat styles and equipment which specialise in long-ranged attack capabilities, or the ability to damage an opponent from a distance. Players may find use of the Ranged combat style to be exceptionally helpful. In addition to the use of Ranged equipment, a Halberd-type weapon may be useful for a Melee style switch -- preferably a Noxious scythe, Attuned crystal halberd, Crystal halberd, or a Dragon halberd. Alternatively, players may also use the Magic combat style, but possibly to a lesser degree of effectiveness than the methods stated above.
During your fights, you will not be allowed to summon a familiar, as the Wise Old Man will be following you.
After returning Mabel's ring, Mabel gives a bankable lamp, which grants 10,000 experience in any skill over level 60. Mabel may be found hiding in a sack in the barn where you originally found her.
After the quest, you can talk to the Draynor tree guard at Draynor Village and offer to chop down the tree to help him down; he will then reward you with 5,000 coins.
Adventurers who have completed the quest may wish to travel to Keldagrim to talk to a dwarf called Runvastr, who lives on Keldagrim's east side in the house directly south of the pickaxe shop. If you deliver his diary to the Wise Old Man back in Draynor Village, you’ll earn the ability to chip House teletabs to take you to Trollheim as well.
