Overview[edit | edit source]

Starting out[edit | edit source]

  • Speak to Sumona in Pollnivneach. (Chat )
  • Equip your catspeak amulet and then attempt to enter the well to the south. NOTE: You will be unable to open the sealed tomb door later in the quest if you do not speak to the cat with the catspeak amulet equipped.

Finding the tomb[edit | edit source]

Location of Abigail
  • Travel to the desert swamp, south of the agility pyramid. Refer to the picture on the right for help.
  • Make your way to the north-west part of the swamp, climb over the pillar and go up the stairs.

Optional: Go west, climb over a small rock wall, and use your rope on a piece of rock jutting out over the edge, this will give you quicker access in the future.

  • Walk north of the archaeologists through the opening in the cliffs (you can refill your waterskin(s) at the spring before you proceed).
  • Click to search the sealed door of the western cliffs and enter the dungeon.

Inside the tomb[edit | edit source]

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

  • Drop your cat, search the hole on the west wall. Your cat will enter.
  • Once inside there are 3 skeletons to the south that will attack, they can be defeated with spells or ranged abilities. Next, break down the broken door (You will need to turn auto-retaliate off by right-clicking the icon just to the left of the adrenaline bar).
  • Once you have broken down the door, step through it, but do not run any further - there are traps!
  • Searching the wall (not the odd markings) temporarily disables the traps.
  • Once you have passed two sets of traps, open the door at the end of the hall and enter the room.
  • Kill the zombies and skeletons, then wait about 10–20 seconds.
  • Kill the level 77 Mummy Warrior and take his Ranged Path key.
  • Use the key on the door to the east then pull the lever on the northern wall.
  • Go back to the starting room (traps on this side are now permanently disabled).
  • Repeat the previous steps on the eastern half of the tomb (after returning to the main room run straight through to the eastern door and enter).
  • 3 skeletons will begin attacking you, continue north.
  • Enter through the door and kill the zombies and skeletons, then wait about 10–20 seconds.
  • Kill the level 77 Mummy Warrior and take his Magic Path key.
  • Use the key on the door to the west then pull the lever on the northern most wall.
  • Once both levers have been pulled return to the starting room and run north, all traps have been disabled (search the sticks and pass two times to reach Catolax).
  • Equip your Ghostspeak amulet and talk to Catolax.
  • Use your earmuffs on your facemask.

The final fight[edit | edit source]

  • Return to Pollnivneach and equip your masked earmuffs and combat gear, then enter the well in the centre of the town.
  • Head north, kill a Mighty banshee for a Banshee voice (you might need to kill multiple).
  • Run north and use the Banshee voice on the largest (and northern most) red barrier.
  • After the cutscene, attack the Banshee Mistress, she is weak to bolts but most attack styles work.
  • Finish the fight and watch the cutscene.
  • If you haven't already, pick up your cat then return to Pollnivneach. Talk to Sumona.
  • Quest complete!
