Starting out

Finding the tomb

Lead archaeologist Abigail location

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.
  • Enter the western dungeon in the cliff face.

Inside the tomb

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

  • Drop your cat, search the wall on the left.
  • Once inside break down the broken door (You will need to turn auto-retaliate off by clicking the icon next to 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 key.
  • Use the key on the nearby door, pull the lever inside.
  • Go back to the starting room (traps on this side are now permanently disabled).
  • Do exactly the same again for the right (east) half of the tomb.
  • Once both levers have been pulled, run to the middle-north room, all traps have been disabled
  • Wear your Ghostspeak amulet and talk to Catolax.
  • Use your earmuffs on your facemask.

The final fight

  • Equip your masked earmuffs and combat gear, then enter the well in Pollnivneach.
  • Head north, kill a Mighty banshee for a Banshee voice (you might need to kill multiple).
  • Run north and use the voice on the red barrier.
  • After the cutscene, attack the Banshee Mistress, she is weak to bolts but most attack styles work.
  • Enable Protect from range prayer before she gets to 50% health.
  • Finish the fight and watch the cutscene.
  • Pick up your cat and talk to Sumona.
  • Quest complete!
