Ankh detail.png

The ankh is an off-hand item found in the Apmeken tomb in the wall surrounding the Monkey colony after completion of Do No Evil. The cave can be entered by using the "Climb to exit" on a point near the top of the south wall. An Apmeken mask can also be found in the cave. To see the fissure, Diamond in the Rough must have been completed.

Entering the tomb requires level 80 Agility, rewarding 20,000 Agility experience when entering for the first time. Experience boosts and double experience can be used to boost the experience reward.

Equipping the ankh together with the Scabaras mask while in the desert completes the elite Desert achievement Ankle Support.

Since 5 June 2017, the ankh can also be worn as a cosmetic override called Pantheon (Apmeken) Ankh.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This symbol comes from ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs. It symbolises the key of life, which is synonymous with the key of the Nile.
  • On release, the Ankh was given 20 higher accuracy than the Virtus book, making it the best magic off-hand weapon in the game. However, this was changed in an update on 11 December 2012.
  • When wielding the Ankh when sheathed, it will appear unsheathed.
