Starting out


Romeo can be found in or near Varrock Square. Speak to him, and he'll ramble about his love for Juliet. Ask him if you can help, and he'll you to talk to her in her mansion.

Speaking to Juliet


Go and talk to Juliet, located on the upper floor of the mansion directly west of the Varrock west bank, just outside the western walls of Varrock, on the upper floor balcony. She will give you a letter to give to Romeo. Go back to Romeo at Varrock Square, and deliver the letter. If you cannot find Romeo, he may have wandered inside the general store located south of the square.

Father Lawrence

Romeo reads the letter and doesn't know what to do. He suggests going to Father Lawrence, who is located in the church north-east of Varrock Square. Speak to Father Lawrence. He mentions a Cadava potion and asks you to speak to the Apothecary. Talk to Romeo first and he will tell you to talk to the Apothecary.

The potion

Note: You can save some time by having the Cadava berries in your inventory before speaking to the apothecary. Ironman players are recommended to grab some redberries at the same time as the cadava berries, for use in later quests.

The Apothecary can be found in south-western Varrock located west of the Varrock Swordshop, in a building with a purple potion icon. Speak to the Apothecary about the quest, and he will tell you he needs cadava berries, you may need to ask him to talk about something else. Cadava berries can be found on a bush located west of the mine south-east of Varrock. When you have them, return to the Apothecary, and he will give you Cadava potion.

If you want to make multiple Cadava potions, drop the one that's in your inventory and ask for another.

Be careful as drinking the potion yourself would result in temporarily knocking yourself out.

Now, head back to Juliet, and give her the potion. You will now see a cutscene of her "dying", though she really falls into a coma.
