A '''Snake charm''' is an item that players use in the two quests [[The Feud]] and [[Port Sarim]]'s part of [[Rat Catchers]] and in the [[minigame]] [[Pyramid Plunder]]. Players obtain this item by putting a [[coin]] into [[Ali the Snake Charmer]]'s money pot (players must remove the coin from their money pouch, then "use" on the money pot). Ali also gives players a [[Snake Basket]]. Ali is located by the southern entrance of [[The Asp & Snake Bar]] in southern [[Pollnivneach]]. '''Note:''' If you already have a '''snake charm''' in your inventory (such as from a previous quest) when speaking to Ali, he will make note of this, and thus will not provide you with another one.

'''To use''', after purchasing, you can click on the flute in your inventory to create a song. A book with 8 pages will pop up on your screen. All you need to do is create an 8-note song by clicking on one hole covering combination per page—there are 8 notes per page—and then hitting play on the eighth page. When you are finished creating the song and have hit play, you will need to find a snake, then right click on your snake charm in your inventory and select ''use snake charm'' and then click on a snake. Your character will then begin to play the song you created for that snake. If it doesn't work the first time, or you chose a note and see ''can't hit the high note'' on your chat box, just create a new song and play that one for your snake. You '''do not''' have to create a new song if your charming skills are insufficient. You simply have to practice by attempting to charm more snakes.
