The dowsing rod is a tracking rod used to find Crondis during the Crocodile Tears quest. It can be obtained from the model boat in the entrance hall of Uzer Mastaba. Initially it does not work as intended, directing towards oasis. It must be brought to the three spirits of the Elid, Tirrie, Nirrie and Hallak, who enchant it to locate Crondis. Afterwards it directs towards Portmaster Kags in the Port district in Menaphos, who transports people to Crondis's pyramid. The rod is used as a key to unlock the pyramid and remains in the door afterwards.
