Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

Getting started[edit | edit source]

  • Begin the quest by talking to Irena, located just south of Shantay Pass (fairy ring BIQ, then run north-east). (Chat 11211)

Getting into the camp[edit | edit source]

Recommended: Food and combat equipment.

  • Go to the Desert Mining Camp entrance (south of Irena).
  • Talk to the Mercenary Captain. (Chat 12221)
  • He will attack you. Kill him and get the key of the gate.

Warning: You will be arrested if you skip the dialogue and attack him, or sent into the desert without waterskins during which time heat damage can be queued instantly killing players with low health.

Note: A dwarf multicannon can be set up west of the gate and the mercenary captain can be lured to the edge of his roaming area where the cannon will be able to hit him.

  • Unequip any weapons AND armour and enter the gate.

Note: Graceful outfit does not get you jailed as long as its not worn in place of the desert clothing.

Warning: You will be jailed if you equip armour or weapons or unequip your slave clothing while inside the camp! Guards are also occasionally aggressive toward the player, so low-levels should be careful.

Getting into the mine[edit | edit source]

  • Talk to the Male slave on the east wall (not the south-east wall) when a guard is not nearby. (Chat 1211111) If you've already talked to him. (Chat 11) If they spot you attempting to break the slave's cuffs you will be sent to the jail. To escape the jail you must bend the bars on the window, climb out, then climb over the rock wall and cliff. Then enter through the gate again.
  • Equip the slave's clothes
  • Enter the mine to the north

Warning: There are aggressive NPCs in this mine be careful if you are low level

  • Follow the path until you reach a guarded cave entrance.
  • Talk to one of the guards until he mentions a Tenti pineapple. (Chat 222)
  • Run back to the surface, unequip ALL pieces of your slave robes and leave the desert camp through the front gate, or return to fairy ring BIQ.

Warning: You will be jailed if you don't unequip your slave robes before leaving the camp through the front gate OR if you exit the mine through the doors with them unequipped!

The plans[edit | edit source]

  • Talk to Al Shabim in the south tent in the Bedabin Camp (directly west of the Desert Mining Camp). You will be given a Bedabin key. (Chat 11)
  • Go back to the Desert Mining Camp. (Make sure to put on your slave outfit (and unequip anything else) before entering the gate. If you inadvertently dropped your slave outfit, you can get another one from a slave by repeating the earlier trade with the desert clothing.)
  • Go up the ladder in the jail building and search the most southern bookcase on the western wall. A message should pop up stating "You notice several books on the subject of sailing."
  • In the same room, talk to Captain Siad. (Chat 1531)
  • Open the chest to obtain the technical plans. (Make sure you click continue, so the plans go to your inventory)
  • Go back to the Bedabin Camp and show Al Shabim the plans. (Chat 11)
  • Use the anvil in the northern tent. Following the plans, create a prototype dart.
    • Use a bronze bar to create a prototype dart tip.
    • Use 10 feathers on the tip to create the dart.
  • Take the dart to Al Shabim, who will in return give you the Tenti pineapple.

Finding Ana[edit | edit source]

  • Equip your Slave outfit and head back to the guards in the mine with your pineapple and give it to one of them.
  • Go through the cave entrance and head east until you're beside the mine cart.
  • Right-click search the nearby barrels to get a barrel. (Chat 1)
  • Get into the mine cart by right-click searching it. (Chat 1) (If you fail to start the cutscene redo this step)
