Orcus altar is an excavation hotspot at Kharid-Et (in the Main Fortress area) that players can dig at with level 86 Archaeology. A Pontifex signet ring is required to be worn or carried in the inventory or toolbelt to pass the barrier.

Between levels 86-89, one can average around 52k xp per hour. This can be achieved by using an Imcando mattock and wearing the Archaeologist's outfit.

Loot[edit | edit source]

Soil[edit | edit source]
