Required Equipment

Method

Find Captain Haba in Svargrond, he is on first floor of the ship, south of the boat that transports people between cities.

Ask him for a mission. He will ask you to bring him 5 Fish, 5 Green Perches, 5 Northern Pikes and 5 Rainbow Trouts. Once you deliver them, you will be able to sail to open sea, just say hunt.
He transports you to the open sea (you will notice because the ship is different, but the captain is the same). There, say trade and buy at least 10 Baits (the amount you need depends on luck, it can go up to 220). After that, go to the left side of the boat, and use one bait on the Crane.

Then, go to the -1 floor of the boat and enter the teleport

Now you will be transported to the top of the mast, here you will find a Telescope.
Now, use the telescope and you will receive a message. After the first message is shown, use it again.

First message

After the second message you have to go back to Captain Haba and tell him the exact location. (For the keywords, see below this text)
Then use a new bait on the Crane and use the telescope again.


This is what you will see every time, and what you should say to Captain Haba.

Look in your server log to see the most recent message, the message in your screen is not recent after you clicked a few times on the Telescope. Three of the possible locations (straight, larboard, starboard) have 4 types of messages, where the serpent you are hunting may be closer or further to the ship; the small dot suggest the sea serpent is far from the boat and the huge shadow is closest. They are vaguely related to the speed the player delivers each new position to Captain Haba. The more huge shadows you get in a row, the more likely you'll finish the quest, but still you can return to the shadow/small dot messages, so it depends mostly on your luck to finish the quest.


You see water as far as the eye can reach. No sea serpent in sight.
Don't go back to the captain, just use the telescope again.

You see a small dot/a dot/a shadow/a huge shadow under the surface straight ahead of you.
Say straight to Captain Haba.

You see a small dot/a dot/a shadow/a huge shadow under the surface. It is to the starboard side.
Say starboard to Captain Haba.

You see a small dot/a dot/a shadow/a huge shadow under the surface. It is on the larboard side.
Say larboard to Captain Haba.

It's getting away! You should tell the captain to gain speed!
Say speed to Captain Haba.

Oops! You lost it.
You said the wrong location to the captain, the nex time you use the telescope you'll see the water as far as the eye can see message.

There are multiple shadows under the surface. This has to be the right location.
This means that you have finished the quest and that you can go underwater.

The hunt for the sea serpent quest 6.png

Make sure you are wearing your Helmet of the Deep. Now go and explore. Note that after entering the teleport there are Deepsea Blood Crabs and Young Sea Serpents. To find Sea Serpents you have to use Levitate or parcels to go down. Pots and Ice Cubes work better, since monsters cannot push them.
