Additional rewards/activities

The Scabaras tomb

Players with level 80 Mining (boosts may be used, must be visible) can mine a crack in the room below the quicksand for 20,000 Mining experience and access a secret treasure room, which contains a Scabaras mask and a Was (sceptre). To reach the fissure room, go down the well (north-west of the Kalphite Lair, fairy ring BIQ) and go in the tunnel in the east wall of the Kalphite nursery. Then go through the tunnel all the way to the other side and enter. You will find yourself in the room below the quicksand.
