The invitation

Pharoah and Jabari discuss

The Pharaoh and Ambassador Jabari discuss your trip to Menaphos.

At the Al Kharid palace, talk with Emir Ali Mirza who informs you that Menaphos wants to reopen trade with Al Kharid and has invited a delegation to Menaphos to negotiate a deal. He sends Grand Vizier Hassan to go as the representative of Al Kharid together with the player who was specifically invited by The Pharaoh. The Emir asks the player to not spy for Osman with which Osman agrees. Osman asks the player to meet them upstairs in the south-east corner on the balcony.

On the balcony Osman will discuss the city of Menaphos with the player. Osman will also confirm again that the player should not spy for him, but if the player notices something of interest then they should report it to him. Osman is particularly interested in the library and any books covering the line of succession of the pharaohs.

Carpet ride

Go upstairs to the top floor of the palace and meet Hassan on the southern side of the roof. Unequip the items in your main- and off-hand slots, dismiss any follower, and fly on the magic carpet with Hassan. Head south in the direction of Menaphos, taking any route you wish. During the ride, Hassan will make comments on any landmarks you fly over. If you would rather go to Menaphos directly, you can speak to Hassan.

Entering the Golden City

The player and Hassan are greeted by Ambassador Jabari who will lead them to Grand Vizier Ehsan, the Menaphos merchant. Both Grand Viziers will negotiate the deal between the cities. The Jack of Spades appears, steals a tax ledger from Ehsan and escapes. Talk to the guards outside the building, who say the Jack of Spades was last seen heading into the Port district to the south.

Following the Jack

The Jack of Spades appear!

The Jack of Spades appears and robs Wadud.

Talk to Admiral Wadud in The Golden Scarab Inn in the Port district. The Jack of Spades appears again and steals Wadud's prized trinket, then vanishes again. Speak to the guards to the west of the Inn, they say the Jack of Spades was seen heading to the Imperial district.

Go north out of the Port district, then west up the stairs from the lodestone. Speak to Commander Akhomet outside the Great Pyramid. The Jack appears again and steals Akhomet's ceremonial dagger, before vanishing again. She advises speaking to Batal in the Worker district.

Head back to the lodestone, then north and west to reach the open bonfire in the Worker district and speak to Batal. The Jack of Spades appears once more and steals Batal's coin purse, then disappears again. Batal suggests searching for an underground hideout below the city.

Enter the Shifting Tombs entrance nearby and speak to the Jack of Spades, who turns out to be none other than Ozan. He has been looking for the Kharid-ib and traced it to Menaphos. He says people have been searching underground and Amascut is behind it. He gives the stolen items which can be used to gain reputation with the four different districts. Return the four stolen items, which grant enough reputation to unlock the Menaphos Grand Exchange. You can take advantage of the Shifting Tombs area to quickly move between districts. After returning all the items, head back near the Merchant district and speak to Hassan to complete the quest.

Congratulations, quest complete!

  • When asking Ozan how he got into the city, the phrase "long story involving bribery, a wig and pink skirt" is a reference to the former quest Prince Ali Rescue.
