The Ballista and its Coordinates

Find the Coordinates.
Items needed: 6 Logs.
Talk to King Bolren in the center of the Tree Gnome Maze. The maze is actually very easy to enter, just watch out for the dead-ends. Choose the options 'Can I help at all?' and 'I would be glad to help' to begin the quest. Elkoy will automatically lead you out of the maze. He will urge you to act fast (Picture).
You must follow the order of the gnomes here, or the third one will not give you his information.Now go north until you find Commander Montai. Talk to him and offer to collect wood for him. Talk to him again and you will automatically hand over the six ordinary logs that you brought with you. Talk to him for the third time and volunteer to help him with co-ordinates (Picture).
Head north-west from Commander Montai and you will find a slightly mad gnome (Picture). He tells you the 'X' co-ordinate in a riddle. The riddle is different for each person, and can be from 1 to 4. Now go to the north-east of the Khazard Battlefield. In a small octagonal building another gnome is being held captive. He will tell you plain and simply that the 'Y' co-ordinate is '5' (Picture).
Behind the biggest building in the Khazard half of the battlefield is the third and final undercover gnome. He tells you that the height co-ordinate is '4' (Picture).
Input Coordinates into Ballista.
Go to the Khazard Battlefield.
Search a Chest.
Return to Elkoy.
Now go over to the ballista on the gnome side of the battlefield. Right-click on it and select 'Fire'. When it asks you to, select:
Height = 4
X = (Random)
Y = 5
If you do this correctly it will tell you that you fired and it hit the Khazard Stronghold (Picture).
Go over to the Khazard part of the battlefield. Select 'climb-over crumbling wall' for the building where the Khazard Commander (Level-48) is. Climb the ladder in the corner of the room and kill him if you want. Both will only drop bones (Picture).
You do not have to defeat these guards, so you can just walk away from the fight. Upstairs search the chest and find an Orb of Protection. Then go downstairs and exit using the door, not the wall (Picture).
Return to Elkoy and he will lead you to King Bolren. King Bolren has bad news - Khazard troops slaughtered many gnomes last night, they also took the other two orbs. You volunteer to retrieve them for him and Elkoy 'teleports' you out again (Picture).
Reclaiming the Orbs
Go north-west of the Khazard Battlefield.
Attack the Warlord.
Return to Elkoy.
Talk to King Bolren.
Go north-west of the Khazard battlefield area past the Wolves (Level-64). Walk past the Khazard Troopers (Level-19) located near him. Attack the Khazard Warlord (Level-112). He is actually very weak and it shouldn't be very difficult for a level 70+. On his death the two remaining orbs appear as one item in your inventory automatically (Picture).
Maging and ranging works well when fighting the Khazard Warlord as he has a small wander zone. Bringing potions, using prayer and special attacks in the battle may help you.
Return to Elkoy and he will lead you to the centre of the maze. Talk to King Bolren, he will personally congratulate you and then a ceremony will commence (Picture).
