Anyone who has permissions should add "Ice Gloves" as requirement.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 01:53, 26 January 2014 (UTC).

Eblis is at bandit camp not bedabin camp, this article says he's "in the same camp"

Run energy and the pyramid[edit source]

According to Framed's quickguide on this quest (skip to 10:10 for the Pyramid part), you are caught in a trap at the pyramid if you fall below 30% run energy. Can someone confirm this?

Someone remove that picture of the person mage praying against kamil it almost got me killed twice. I'm sure other dumb people like me will make the same mistake and mage pray. at least change it to someone melee praying, for people who didnt read that part and assume they need to mage pray when seeing the picture.

smoke diamond, telling u can use all spells but fire false.[edit source]

you have to use water spells nothing else the subject in the smoke diamond recieval to kill the boss is missleading thinking people can bring air or earth elemental spells these will splash also.

44 prayer recommendatio[edit source]

I think the recommendation for this should be 43 prayer. Nowhere in the guide is Eagle Eye mentioned, and ranged isn't recommended anywhere either, so it doesn't make sense that 44 prayer would be recommended. I think this might be a typo, and should say 43 prayer, for the protect from melee prayer 22:10, July 12, 2014 (UTC)Anonymous

Prayer Pot suggestion on damis[edit source]

Prayer pot suggestion for Damis, it should be added that when fighting damis, if you attack him straight on bring atleast 4 prayer pots depending on what spell is going to be used, for example if using earth blast bring 5 to be safe. i killed him with 4 prayer left to spare using earth blast with 50 prayer and 4 prayer pots.

Picking the secure chest[edit source]

I got the secure chest's lock picked on the first try. There are several quests in OSRS which have gotten easier compared to '07 RS as it was back then. Can anyone confirm if this is one of those cases? 14:05, November 25, 2014 (UTC)

I can confirm this, the second lockpick attempt was successful. With 53 Thieving level.

I can also confirm this, got it second try -- Ishiz

Took me about 8 pick (level 53) Gtrdhjuytt (talk) 08:35, 2 January 2021 (UTC)

Slayer Mask[edit source]

It's worth pointing out that the slayer helmet cannot be used at the smoke dungeon, it'll say you need a face mask.

I thought I could use my slayer helmet when reading facemask as a requirement.

Wearing a slayer helmet, it stopped me going down the first time I clicked the well, with a warning about the bad air; but the second time I clicked the well I did go down. If you went away and changed face covering, maybe it was just the second click on the well that did the trick... Blade Sabre (talk) 21:12, 10 June 2020 (UTC)

Ruantun[edit source]

There is a dead link for "ruantan". That is because his name is Ruantun, with a u and not an a. 23:22, January 25, 2015 (UTC)

Shield[edit source]

You can use shield against Fareed without Ice gloves.

Did it, and it worked.

Ironman hidden skill requirement[edit source]

It should be noted that ironmen will not be able to purchase the required magic logs off the GE, so one must either be able to kill high-level bosses (unlikely for ironmen doing this quest), have 75 Woodcutting (boostable) to chop Magic trees, or 58 Hunter (boostable) to catch a Nature impling.

The difficulty of opening the chest is completely exaggerated[edit source]

I'm not sure if Jagex made it easier to pick the chest for the shadow diamond, but I and many others have noticed that it's not that hard. This guide severely exaggerates how many lockpicks and resources to bring for that part.

Tasty Quarks (talk) 07:48, April 29, 2017 (UTC)

I went through a couple hundred myself. All based on RNG, though maybe it has gotten easier since I did it. Ajraddatz (talk) 07:53, April 29, 2017 (UTC)

Your mileage may vary. I used 70. 16:58, 26 November 2019 (UTC)

Safe spot[edit source]

Does the safe spot for Damis still work? His article suggests not. Ishiz (talk) 01:05, October 1, 2017 (UTC)

Yeah, it doesn't seem to work for me, he disappears with a message "Damis has vanished once more into the shadows..." before i can make it to the safespot 2001:8003:B116:2600:FDD2:305C:A557:ECA7 12:27, 20 October 2019 (UTC)

Poor guide[edit source]

Sorry, this has got to be one of the worst quest guides I've ever seen. It provides little to no warnings or help for battles, it's made my quest take probably 4 times longer than it should have because I was unable to properly prepare, I had to keep going back and forth and buying and withdrawing things that weren't described in the guide. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 15:58, 29 July (UTC).

I disagree, but feel free to make any contributions where you feel necessary. The wiki thrives because of its community involvement. Anything you add to improve the page will make the quest easier for someone else.

Reaching Dessous[edit source]

Has the route to Dessous changed (possibly with the Darkmeyer update)? I couldn't find the way through. Blade Sabre (talk) 11:13, 5 June 2020 (UTC)

Update "Darkmeyer Day One Feedback Changes" says "Some blocking that was accidentally added to the swamps near Darkmeyer has been replaced with traversable scenery." And I got through today. So I guess I just picked the wrong day to attempt this quest! Blade Sabre (talk) 21:04, 10 June 2020 (UTC)

Traps / goal[edit source]

Final part with the pyramid in the instructions had a vague statement about not clicking the ladder but click the goal. But the goal is the ladder... so what does this mean?

Also it says that there are traps that can't be seen, but then in level 2 it says to flick prayers and 'Be sure to look out for them.' - so is inconsistent. Gtrdhjuytt (talk) 08:37, 2 January 2021 (UTC)

Final Room in Pyramid Not Safe?[edit source]

The guide says the last room in the pyramid (with Azzanadra) is safe from mummies and scarabs, but while I was in that room a scarab swarm spawned and interrupted the dialogue with Azzanadra until I killed it. I don't know if this was a bug or if the guide is incorrect but it at least makes it questionable. I'm not positive that the scarabs actually spawned in the room or somehow went through the wall/door, but I am sure they weren't there at the start (they interrupted the second set of dialogue, not the first).
