Shadow Diamond[edit | edit source]

Items needed: A few antipoisons, lots of lockpicks, earth spells if using magic
  • Talk to Rasolo who is west of the Fishing Guild by the fenced area. (Chat 31)
  • Return to the desert Bandit Camp. (You only need the lockpicks for this part, you can bank once you've got the cross).
  • Unlock the chest in the small southern tent. You might use many lockpicks. Hair clips are very useful here, as you can reclaim them from Merlin for free (requires King's Ransom) or you can just steal from the level 54 Bandits around the camp to get lock picks and anti poison. Master thief's lockpick also works and will never break.
  • Prepare for combat before returning the cross to Rasolo who will give you a ring of visibility.
  • Equip the ring, run into the fenced area to the east and down the ladder.
  • Run east to the grey point (see map legend) and kill Damis by defeating him in both phases. If Damis despawns, run a small distance back from where you came, then run back.
