|Location on World Map|
Sophanem, the "City of the Dead", is located far south in the Kharidian Desert, right on the edge of the map. In order to gain access to this city, players either need to progress far enough into the Icthlarin's Little Helper quest, or they may enter by teleporting to the Pyramid Plunder minigame using the Pharaoh's sceptre, then exiting the pyramid. The city is currently being afflicted by several plagues. A bank and some shops open after Contact! quest. Players come here to get good Thieving experience at Pyramid Plunder or for a hard clue scroll.
Travel[edit | edit source]
- The Pharaoh's sceptre can teleport you directly inside the Pyramid Plunder minigame with the Jalsavrah option.
- The magic carpet system can be used to travel to Sophanem from southern Pollnivneach (if you have completed Icthlarin's Little Helper)
- You can use the Construction cape to teleport to Pollnivneach, then run south to the carpet to Sophanem.
- Fairy ring code DLQ is some distance away but probably an option if the above two are not available.
- Teleport to Nardah and run south-west.
Shortcut[edit | edit source]
A shortcut just east of the bank at the wall leads to the camp just north of Sophanem and west of the Agility Pyramid.
