OSRS – Clock Tower Quest Guide
The Clock Tower is an easy quest, and here is everything you need to know about it.
When you are out questing in Old School Runescape, it takes you away from the grind of finding OSRS gold or leveling your skilling to engage yourself in a story or two. In this instance, we will be looking at the Clock Tower quest, and what you’ll need to do in order to complete it.
Getting Started with Clock Tower Quest
You are going to firstly need to be able to get past level 53 Ogres, and take either a bucket or ice gloves with you for this quest too. The only other required item is rat poison, but you will get that during the quest itself.
To begin, go to the Clock Tower which is to the southwest of the Ardougne Zoo. Speak to Brother Kojo here, who will inform you that the clock has broken and you have to find four cogs from the tower dungeon to make it work again. With that knowledge, go down the ladder in the southern part of the room. Then we need to head down the passage in the northeast side where you will find four coloured tiles on the ground. These represent the colour of the cogs that we are going to have to find.
First, we have the red cog, which is through the door to the southeast, where you will see a red tile. Go through the passage until you come across the Ogres, where you will see the cog nearby. Run past the Ogres and grab the cog, then head back up to the ground floor to use the red cog on the corresponding red spindle.
Next, we have the blue cog, which we need to head out of the Clock Tower for. Go out and head north-east to find Brother Cedric. Head down the ladder near the camel cage at the Ardougne Zoo and go down. You will be going through a long passage until you come across a wall that can be pushed. Do so and find the blue cog inside. You can then climb the ladder in the cage to get back to near the Clock Tower. Go back in then put the blue cog on the blue spindle.
Onto the third cog, which is the black cog where we need to go back down the ladder and go through the door to the northeast. Head to the east now where you can see spiders, and the black cog is located within the little firewalls here. This is why you need either a bucket of water or ice gloves. Use either to cool down the cog then go back to the ladder. Before you go up it, you should be able to see four spindles, so put the cog on the black one.
Lastly, we have the white cog. Go back to the ladder beneath the Clock Tower then go through the door to the northwest. You will see a white tile to guide you in the right direction, after which you can follow the outer path where you will eventually come across rat poison. Pick It up then go north-east down the left-hand path until you get to the dungeon rats, where you will see two levers. Pull them to lift the cages then go through the gates, before using the poison in the trough here.
This will in turn kill the rats. Once they are all dead, go to the western gate which has become unhinged and find the white cog. Grab it and use the ladder to get to the outskirts of the tower again. Go inside and use the cog on the spindle on the highest floor.
Once you have done this, go back to Brother Kojo to get your reward and finish the OSRS clock tower quest. For doing so, you will receive a Quest Point and 500 coins.
If it is OSRS GP that you are looking for from this quest, then you are probably going to have to lower your expectations a little. That being said, you would probably be better off buying OSRS gold from a vendor that has OSRS gold for sale if that is what you are after. But if you do want to rack up your quest points and take in a story at the same time, then this is a great place to start, given that it is rather easy to complete so you aren’t going to have to rush in with your Twisted Bow blazing, and you don’t have to worry about it taking too long for you to finish either.
