Skill: 40 Prayer, Ability to defeat Banshee mistress (level-111).
Item: Pharaoh's sceptre, Waterskins (or Enchanted water tiara), High healing food (Sharks), Armour, 410gp+ (for magic carpet and Shanty passes).
Do you dare to venture into the depths beneath Pollnivneach, where unknown dangers await amid smoke and screaming? The perils will be great, but, when rescuing a damsel in distress, the act should be reward enough...
Speak to Sumona.
Go to the well.
Items needed: Catspeak Amulet.
Speak to Sumona in Pollnivneach, she can be found in a building just east of the player owned house portal in the north end of the city. Agree to help find her sister and then walk slightly south to the well within the nearby courtyard.
You must be wearing your Catspeak amulet at this point. Attempt to climb down the well and you will be interrupted by Ali Cat. He will warn you of the danger that lies down the well, as you cannot wear ear muffs and a face mask at the same time to protect yourself. Ali Cat will send you on a mission to seek out Catolax, a dead Slayer master.
Take the Pickaxe.
Send your cat through the hole.
Destroy the door.
Kill the combatants.
Pull the lever.
Search the tombs in the east room and repeat the process of pulling the lever.
Speak to Catolax in the middle.
Items needed: Cat, Catspeak Amulet, Food (lobsters and above), Ghostspeak Amulet, Ranged weapon or offensive Magic spells, Pickaxe (Can be obtained in tomb).
Suggested items: Pharaoh's sceptre and Waterskins.
Head to the Agility Pyramid by either taking the carpet to Sophanem and running east, or using your Pharaoh's sceptre to teleport there. Alternatively players can run from Pollnivneach to Nardah across the river and then run south from there, if players have completed Spirits of the Elid, the bank available in the city can be helpful during the quest. From the Agility Pyramid head south-east through the gap in the desert wall to the darkened area of swamp and push reeds as you walk north to the steps (Picture). Go up the steps.
Make your way to the passage, with the water source (you can use this to fill your waterskins), and head north along the west wall and you will find a Sealed Door with the option to search (Picture).
When you first get into the tomb you will see a pickaxe stuck in the wall, remove it as you will need it later. You will need to have your cat following you for this step. At both sides of the room you will see a small hole in the wall, which is big enough for your cat to fit through. Send your cat through one of these holes and it will open the door to the side of the wall. Equip something that allows you to do a ranged attack and it is advised to put on the Protect from Magic Prayer as the Skeletons hit quickly and accurately. Run into the room that you have just opened and once you have killed the three skeletons that appear, destroy the broken door (Picture). You cannot destroy the door whilst being attacked, which is why you need to kill the skeletons. If you do not have ranged or magic attacks then just run in and do some damage to the door before the skeletons can attack, then keep running out and back in again until you have destroyed the door. Once the door is destroyed, progress through the tunnel.
It is possible to disable the traps, but it is difficult, one space behind each wall trap there is a very faint marking that has a 'Search wall' option, chose this and you can temporarily disable the nearby trap. If you fail to disable the traps they will do around 150 damage each time, you can run past all the traps and get straight into the final room whilst only taking damage from the traps once, this is not recommended but it is much quicker. When you reach the room at the end you will be attacked by four monsters, around level 50 combat, kill them all. You will then see a Mummy Warrior (Level 54) wake up out of the sarcophagus. It will drop a key, use this on the locked door next to you (Picture), this will allow you to pull the lever which will disable the remaining traps that you have not disabled (apart from the ones down the middle corridor).
Make your way to the opposite room, search the tombs, then kill the four enemies again. Once again, kill the Mummy Warrior and unlock the door, then pull the lever.
Once you have pulled both levers, you will safely be able to make your way down the middle corridor. Equip your Ghostspeak Amulet then talk to Catolax. You will learn how to combine earmuffs with face masks.
Make the Masked Earmuffs.
Pass through the barrier.
Defeat the Banshee mistress.
Return to Sumona.
Items needed: Face Mask, Earmuffs, Food, Armour.
To combine your Earmuffs and your Face mask, select one of the item and use on the other item. This will produce Masked Earmuffs.Now you are ready to find Sumona's sister. Equip your Masked Earmuffs and make your way down the well, once down you will need to follow the north corridor, until you get to a room full of Mighty banshee (level-90).
Head to the north of the room where you will see a long red barrier, at which you will need to kill a Mighty banshee and pick up its "Banshee voice" to pass.
Once you pass the barrier, you will have a short talk then you will begin combat. You are first attacked by the Banshee mistress (level-111) who will use magic and melee to attack you, it is helpful to use the Protect from Magic Prayer as her spells can knock you over. Once she is at a low health, she will call the four Insectoid Assassins (level-141) to attack you, focus on attacking the Banshee mistress, they will use Ranged attacks that should be protected against using the Protect from Missiles Prayer (Picture). It can be helpful to turn off auto-retaliate so that you do not run and attack the Insectoids when knocked over by the Banshee's spells. Once the Banshee mistress is dead, Jesmona will kill the four Insectoid Assassins.
Return to Sumona on the surface at the quest start point to complete the quest.
A: You don't need to, you only need to travel past the pyramid in order to reach the swamp.
A: Yes, It is possible to use Overgrown cats, Hellcats, and even Kittens.
A: Sometimes, your cat might say that he will stay the other side of the wall, this is a joke and should not be taken seriously. Your cat will return and the door will open.
