Dr Nabanik is the site manager for Kharid-et Dig Site, and is a human alias for the Mahjarrat Azzanadra. The Mahjarrat Wahisietel also uses the alias at the Kharid-et digsite while Azzanadra is otherwise occupied.

During The Temple at Senntisten, Azzanadra, as Dr Nabanik, re-establishes contact with Zaros through the temple beneath the Dig Site east of Varrock.

During The Vault of Shadows, Azzanadra, as Dr. Nabanik, frees Trindine from the vault underneath Kharid-et.

During City of Senntisten, Azzanadra, as Dr. Nabanik, unearths the Zarosian capital city Senntisten and hides the Elder God eggs within.

When Azzanadra and Gielinor's other major gods are rebanished at the end of Aftermath, Wahisietel takes up the Dr. Nabanik alias.

  • patch 9 August 2021 (Update):
    • Dr Nabanik's 'I want to talk about mysteries' dialogue option now works correctly.
  • patch 25 January 2021 (Update):
    • A new miniquest called 'The Vault of Shadows' has been added, which takes you through The Vaut of Shadows Archaeology mystery.
      • The requirement to do so is now 58 Archaeology, although you will still need 107 Archaeology to restore your own Spell Scrolls and receive XP.
      • If you have previously completed the mystery, speak to Dr Nabanik to complete the new miniquest.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In Postbag from the Hedge 42, when Azzanadra was disguised as Dr Nabanik, he jokes that he is a Mahjarrat. During The Temple at Senntisten, it is revealed that this is actually the truth. In the letter, Dr Nabanik mentioned that he had "spent some time in the pyramids". This is obviously a joke to his imprisonment by the Zamorakian forces back in the God Wars.
  • All of Azzanadra's guises seem to feature twin prongs on his head. Even as Dr Nabanik, he has two feathers where the usual horns should be. These are Griffin feathers.[1] These prongs are a sign of his position as head of the Zarosian church and are mocked as "Bunny Ears" by Sliske.
