Speak to High Priest.
Speak to Maisa.
To begin the quest, speak to the High Priest in the temple in Sophanem, to the south-west of the Pyramid Plunder mini game. He will tell you of a corpse you are needed to identify, and says he will meet you upstairs.
When you go upstairs, you will find out that the corpse is a women named Maisa, who turns out to be alive, but sick. When you speak to her, you will be given the task to go east and find some archaeologists who will help you get revenge for the death of Maisa's partner. Speak to the High Priest then head out of the gate and go east.
Go south-east and find the archaeologists
Speak to the lead archaeologist
Get several items for Simon Templeton
Items needed: 10 Golden Objects from Pyramid Plunder, the requested random Bronze Items, Camel Dung, Golden Artefact (from the top of the Agility Pyramid).
Go south-east until you reach water, and then go east. You'll come to a swampy area. Push through two sets of reeds, then go down the patch of land you're currently on to reach another set of reeds (there is a ladder symbol on the mini-map). Climb the pillar (Picture) and go up the stairs. Talk to the lead archaeologist (Picture), who will ask you a series of simple math questions (use a calculator if necessary).
Talk to the lead archaeologist again and she will tell you about Simon Templeton, and ask you to get a few random bronze items (varies from person to person), ten golden objects from the Pyramid Plunder mini game, and a golden artefact from the top of the Agility Pyramid. You will be told to make the bronze objects look ancient by rubbing camel dung on them while in the desert (60 Crafting required). If you do not have 60 crafting, you will have to put all the bronze items into the crate given to you, and bring them to the archaeologists along with a bucket of dung, to make the items ancient. To get the camel dung, you have to use kebab hot sauce (from the kebab seller in Pollnivneach), on the camel's trough in Pollnivneach and wait (you need a bucket and some form of gloves to pick it up). Alternatively, you can equip your Camulet and ask one of the various camels in Al Kharid for its dung. (It is recommended that you have a rope at this stage to make the rest of the quest much easier. After talking to the Archaeologists, head west past the mummies and secure your rope on the ledge. Now you can return by going past the agility arena instead of all the way around the plateau.)
Bring the items to Simon Templeton
Go back to the archaeologists
Kill Scabarites to get 4 notes
Return to archaeologists to receive a key.
Items needed: Gear to fight dangerous NPCs.
When you have the items required, go to the Agility Pyramid and speak with Simon Templeton. You'll give him the objects in return for a receipt to give to the lead archaeologist. Head back to the archaeologists and give them the receipt. In return, you'll receive a diary which you must fill with four notes.
To obtain these notes, you must kill either Scabarites, Zombies, Skeletons or Mummies. Scabarites can be found to the east of the cliff, by going back down the stairs beside the archaeologists. Zombies and Skeletons can be found just north of the Archaeologists and Mummies are west from there. Once you have the four pages, head back to the archaeologists and speak with them to receive a key.
The Devourer's Tricks
Head north and go down the stairs.
Speak with the golem.
Light the furnace and divert the power to each of the 4 rooms.
Pull all the levers to enter the next room.
Items needed: Gear to fight Giant Scarab (Level-206), 3-4 Logs recommended.
Head north until you find a set of stairs. Go down these. You'll come into a storeroom, with 4 closed doors, and a locked door to the west, at the end of the 4 closed doors. Your goal is to pull all the levers before the power runs out. To start the power, you'll see a golem in the south side of the room, talk to him. Take a log from the storage box and put it into the furnace. Speak to the golem again, and he'll ask you which room you want to have the most power diverted to, choose the room with the mysterious box. Next choose the Scarab room, and then the narrow pipe room, and finally the least power will be put into the empty room.
Quickly run to the empty room, run in and pull the lever. Next, run to the room with the narrow pipe. Cross the pipe (you may fail, and have to restart the entire sequence again, by putting another log into the furnace and speaking to the golem). Pull the lever and head back. Go into the Scarab room, and you'll be attacked by a Giant scarab (Level-206). He attacks with range and melee, and can poison you, so wear melee gear, and pray range, remember your anti-poison potions. Another strategy is to melee it with a halberd from a distance while using the protect from range prayer. He'll only use his range attacks if you stand far enough away while doing this. This method saves you some food consumption. Once you kill it, pull the lever in the room, and head to the final room, the one with the mysterious box.
The mysterious box is actually a rune puzzle. The number in the bottom corner is the number of tries you get. There are 3 machines on the right side of the puzzle that can be adjusted to gain 5 more tries each, for a total of 15 extra tries. Each spot is taken by a rune, and your job is to match all of the runes. There are 3 runes for each type. (The easiest way to do this is to take out a pencil and paper, and make a 6x6 grid. Tap each rune and record what it is onto its corresponding spot on your grid. Then match them up in sets of three). Once you have pulled all 4 levers without failing any, you will be able to enter the final room.
Head through the dungeon until High Priest
Convince the High Priest that killing non-Scabarites is wrong.
Speak with High Priest in Sophanem
Items needed: Relicym's Balm, Anti-Poison Potions, Food, Prayer Potions.
After you have pulled all 4 levers, the final room will open. Continue through it after getting more supplies, and watch for traps on the floor. Beware of npc's that will mage, melee and range you with poison and disease. Head straight down the passage, and stay going west until you find a room with the High Priest of Scabaras in it. Enter this room and speak to him. You now have to convince the High Priest that killing all non-Scabarites is wrong. You must do this diplomatically and cannot just kill him. When you have convinced him, he will talk to you about any questions you have concerning the Scabarites, which you write down in your diary, given to you previously by the archaeologists.
Note: I first said, "By all the deities, what is going on here?", followed by, "Sounds like the Devourer."
Head back to the High Priest in Sophanem for your reward.
A: This tiara takes the place of a waterskin, freeing up inventory space. Apart from that the enchanted water tiara acts as a normal water tiara. To charge it, simply use water runes on a normal water tiara. It requires three water runes per charge, and each charge takes the place of one use of a water skin. The tiara requires 50 Runecrafting to be made.
A: There are a total of 22 pages. 20 of them can be gained by killing Scabarites, which includes the 4 pages you need for the quest. The other 2 pages can be found in chests in the Scabarite Dungeon, near the High Priest of Scabaras. Abigail will give you 10,000 coins for the completed notes.
A: When speaking to Simon Templeton during the quest, he'll ask you to speak to the Pyramid Plunder mummy for him. When you speak to him, you will make a deal to sell all Pottery and Clay statues in noted form. Gold statues cannot be sold noted.
