1. The book:

After starting the quest by talking to Reldo in the Varrock palace library, search around the library bookcases until you find a book titled "The Shield of Arrav" (By A R Wright). Read the book and decide which side you will join.

***2a. Phoenix Gang:

i. If you want to join this gang, go back to Reldo and talk with him about where you can find the Phoenix Gang. He doesn't know.

ii. Talk with the fur trader Baraek in Varrock Square; give him 20gp for the information on where the Phoenix hideout is.

iii. Head over to the hideout, it's in an alley in the south of Varrock. Head down the stairs and talk with Straven.

iv. To join the VTAM Corporation you'll need to kill Jonny the Beard in the Blue Moon Inn (west of the hideout) to get a report for Straven.

v. Straven will give you a key to the hideout.

vi. The shield half is in the back in a chest.

vii. Give the key to your friend who joined the Black Arm gang.

***2b. Black Arm Gang:

i. Talk with the Tramp just west of the south entrance to Varrock. Ask him what's down the alleyway, and he'll tell you that it's the Black Arm Gang's hideout.

ii. Follow the alleyway and talk with Katrine. Tell her that you know about the gang, and that you won't tell who your source is. Tell her to try you out to prove that you're trustworthy.

iii. Get the armour room key from your friend who joined the Phoenix gang.

iv. Once you have the key, go a little east of the Phoenix hideout and find the locked door.

v. Go in and up the stairs. You will be attacked by the Phoenix master of arms, the Weaponsmaster. Kill him and take two crossbows.

vi. Go back to Katrine and give her the crossbows.

vii. Go upstairs in the Black Arm hideout, and get the shield half from a cupboard.

3. Finishing:

Go to the Curator in the museum and give him your half of the shield, and have your friend do the same. You both will get two half certificates.

You will need to trade one of your half certificates to each other so you can get a full certificate. Put the two certificates together to get the full certificate.

Now take the whole certificate to King Roald to claim your reward.
