Page name[edit source]

Shouldn't the page use the ingame quest's name, "The Dig Site"? 21:39, October 30, 2016 (UTC)

Recommended number of dig site teleports[edit source]

Right now the guide suggests getting 6 dig site teleports (1 for getting there and 5 for use during the quest). This seems really extreme to me as you really only need 2, one for getting there to start and one for getting back there after talking to the curator. Running back and forth the very small distance from the dig site to the exam center is barely any longer than teleporting and saves a lot of money considering dig site teleports go for around 10k. Any opinions on this? -- 23:34, 22 October 2020 (UTC)

Boots/gloves required[edit source]

Are boots and gloves actually required? Parenthetical notes in the article correctly point out that you don't specifically need leather boots/gloves. I used rune boots and red gloves and had no problem. However, I'm hesitant to edit it myself since I'm not sure if you need boots/gloves at all to complete the quest. The exam suggests that's the case, but I didn't try digging without them. I also agree with the above that 5 digsite teles are overkill. I only used two, and one was because I was exceptionally lazy after getting the stone tablet. 2601:681:5800:D990:809F:713:D0A9:F7DC 15:33, 30 January 2021 (UTC)

Probably not. Might be worth trying if there's a league that doesn't auto-complete it, or when they implement quest speedrunning. Cronos Dage (talk) 15:50, 30 January 2021 (UTC)
Just tried with no graceful boots and gloves equipped or in my inventory. You can still get the Ancient talisman without them. Leather gloves and boots are only required for other, irrelevant dig sites. Will be removing from guide. 2804:14D:688A:934:A84B:4183:6AA1:83CC 23:18, 1 February 2021 (UTC)
Leather boots and gloves still present in guide. Completed quest without either, but you can dig up the boots at least at the phase where you dig for talisman. I will try to re-remove this.-- 07:05, 17 September 2021 (UTC)
