Overview[edit | edit source]

Starting out[edit | edit source]

Items needed: Catspeak amulet
  • Speak to Sumona in Pollnivneach (Chat ) (without a cat pet out).
  • Equip your catspeak amulet.
  • Run south to the well in the town centre.
  • Attempt to climb down the well.
  • Speak to the cat, finish all prompts.
    • If you do not wear a catspeak amulet or skip the conversation, you will be unable to open the sealed tomb door later in the quest.

Finding the tomb[edit | edit source]

Location of Abigail
Items needed: Bring all items needed for the next section
Items recommended: rope, waterskins, food for lower-level players
  • Travel to the desert swamp, south of the agility pyramid. Refer to the picture on the right for help. Note that the entrance to the swamp is all the way south, by the seashore.
  • Make your way to the north-west part of the swamp (pictured), "climb fallen pillar", and go up the stairs.
    • Optional: Go west, "climb low wall", use your rope "rock", jutting out over the edge - this will give you quicker access in the future.
  • Walk north past the Archaeologist's fire, through the opening between the cliffs.
  • Search the western wall for a sealed door to enter the dungeon.

Inside the tomb[edit | edit source]

Note: leaving the tomb or logging out may revert some of your progress in this section.

Items needed: Cat of any sort, catspeak amulet, ghostspeak amulet, combat gear (ranged or magic recommended), earmuffs, facemask
