To unlock it a certain type of rune must be placed on the door. Closely examine the text on the door to determine what type of rune to use. The word 'PROHIBITED' is the key to which rune to use. The shape of one letter of the word hints at the correct rune. After placing the rune, search once again to disarm the doors trap.

Right-click search the door and disable the trap (Chat 1), then open the door.
Right-click search the painting on the east wall (Chat 1).

Look-at the thermometer. Note down the number it says in blue. Check your current character's weight in your equipment interface. You must equalise both numbers. If you weigh more than the number in blue: subtract the number from the thermometer from your character's weight to get the result number. For example if the thermometer says 20 and you weigh 30 kg, you would need 10 kg. If you weigh less than the number in blue: subtract your character's weight from the number in blue from to get the result number. On the floor of this room is a pile of weights. Right-click take weights equaling the result number you got.
Climb back up the spiral staircase. If you weigh more than the number in blue: Use all the weights on the statue just north of you. Open the door just east. If you weigh less than the number in blue: keep the weights in your inventory and open the door east of the statue.

Additional rewards/activities

Dragon Forge

By using either the Strange key teeth or the Strange key loop on a Mithril dragon, with both pieces in your inventory, you obtain a Dragonkin key. With this key, you can unlock the Dragon Forge in the Ancient Cavern, near the mithril dragons.

Inside the forge are three dragon heads and a giant orb in the centre. Lighting each head will cause fire to appear in their mouths and slide towards the centre. Once the orb is lit, the player can leave and return to the mysterious forge to find it full of molten lava. It is here, using a Blast fusion hammer purchased from the Foreman at the Blast Furnace for 1,000,000 coins, that the player can fuse together the three parts of the Dragon platebody with Smithing level 92 (was level 99 when first released [1]). The current price of the platebody is 1,254,564 coins.

Memorial statues

Due to the death of the close friends of your character and heroes of Runescape, memorial statues were put up at several spots in remembrance of them.

When these statues are examined, it reads "In honour of the hero [Dead Hero's Name], who died attacking the Mahjarrat known as "Lucien".

Replaced characters

Cyrisius Greyed out of NPC contact

When you open up the Lunar spell NPC Contact, Cyrisus is still there, but grayed out. If you choose him, the chat box says "You take a moment of silence in honour of your fallen brethren, Cyrisus. Lucien will be made to pay."

After the quest, new replacement NPCs appear since Lucien killed most of the team of warriors organised to stop him in the Wilderness, although there is no replacement for Hazelmere or Cyrisus.
