Sumona and Ali Cat

 

my_cat_icon6894685086-iaza.gifBegin by talking to Sumona in northern Pollnivneach. She will say that her sister is down the well in the center of city and is in need of rescuing. Of course that means you. Go to the well in the center of the city and try to climb in. A cat will stop you, preventing you from going in. (Note: If you don't have your Catspeak amulet equipped, you will not be able to understand him.) Once you are able to understand him he will tell you that there are many dangers in the well. You cannot survive without Earmuffs down there because of the Banshees and smoke. So you need a Facemask and Earmuffs equipped at the same time. Though, it's impossible. Or is it? Ali Cat will tell you that you need to find a spirit that can teach you how to survive down in the well. The spirit had once climbed down the well, but ended up dying there, he did find a way to combine the two items though. You can find the spirit in a tomb south from Nardah and east from the Agility Pyramid. Now take your Catspeak and Ghostpseak amulet and your ranging or magic equipment. It is advised you take food, the monsters you encounter on the way are quite aggressive. Use this map to find your way to the tomb:

 

map_to_tombsv2-1.png

 

When you arrive at the swamp be wary of level 89 Crocodiles, they are aggressive and appear from the ponds. To pass through the swamp you will need to push through the reeds, a suggested passage is shown on the map above.

 

push_reeds_tomb.png

 

When you are at the Fallen Pillar, climb over it and go upstairs. You will see some Archaeologists and a spring that allows you to refill your waterskins. Head north and be sure to have your cat with you. Open these sealed doors:

 

sealed_door.png

 

Getting to Catolax

 

Note: If you log out in the tomb, next time you log in you will be outside the tomb.

 

waterskin_guide7387797203-iaza.gif You will find yourself inside the tomb. Take off the pickaxe from the tomb to the left from the entrance. If you had your cat in your inventory then he will climb out. He will tell you that the middle path is full of traps, but there are two small holes in the walls. Those are worth checking.

 

cat_tlking_bout_paths.png

 

Now Search the holey wall and your cat will want to go and check if that hole is a good place for taking a nap. Well it isn't because both side walls of the room will collapse and you will discover two rooms.

 

small_hole.png

 

Equip your ranging/magic equipment and go inside one of the rooms. One room has some Ranger Skeletons throwing rocks at you and other one has Skeletons casting battle spells on you.

 

2q8qcf5.png

 

Go inside the room with Ranger Skeletons and kill them all. Destroy the door by clicking on it and run through the tunnel, but beware of the traps. They will hit some damage on you and cannot be evaded. Open the next door and kill the four monsters. This will make the level 54 Mummy Warrior climb out of his sarcophagus, so kill him too.

 

mummy_warrior.png

 

Pick up the key he dropped and use it with the doors to the east. Go inside and pull the lever there. You disabled the traps in the both tunnels, but not in the middle one yet. Go to the other room with the Skeletons that cast magic on you. Kill them too and destroy the doors. Run through the tunnel to the other doors and open them. You will see more four monsters. Kill them all and another Mummy Warrior will appear. Kill him and pick up the key. Now unlock the doors to the west and pull this lever.

 

onyx_catolax.png

 

Congratulations, you have disabled the traps in the middle tunnel. Go through the middle tunnel and talk to Catolax (with your Ghostspeak amulet equipped, of course). He will help you understand that you can combine the Facemask with Earmuffs. So use your Facemask on the Earmuffs and you will get Masked Earmuffs. Equip your armor, Masked Earmuffs and take some food. Now head for the well in Pollnivneach.

 

The Smokey Well

 

mask1737358611-iaza.gifWhen you have everything you need (and your Masked Earmuffs equipped), climb down the well and go north until you find a Wavering Mystic Barrier. It looks like this:

 

barrier.png

 

9vk004.gifNow kill the Banshees until one of them drops an item called Banshees voice. When you have got it, pass the barrier and you will see a cut-scene.

 

Attack the level 111 Mistress Banshee. If you want, use Protect from Magic prayer. When she is low on HP then the Rangers will start attacking you too, so it is suggested to use your Protect from Missiles prayer then.

 

banshee.png

 

When Mistress Banshee dies, there will be another cut-scene of the sister of Sumona killing the rangers and then she will teleport away. You will hear Catolax talking to you. He will say that you freed him because you killed the Mistress Banshee. Go back to Sumona and...

*You can cancel this, so you can get these monsters in an assignment again. But you wont get your points back.

 

Desert Slayer Dungeon

 

After you complete this quest, you can enter the dungeon below the well, whenever you want. It has two floors. When you climb down the well, you arrive in the top floor. It is full of level 90 Mighty Banshees. The level below this floor has different monsters. You can find level 61 Basilisks, level 85 Turoths, level 96 Abberant spectres, level 106 Kurasks and level 138 Cave Crawlers there. Remember that you need your Masked Earmuffs or Slayer Helmet to survive in this dungeon.

2. [^] Try to enter the well with a Catspeak amulet eqquiped

eqquiped -> equipped

 

shouldn't center be centre?
Center is the right one, it's the difference between us and uk English again. Since sal uses us it should be center.

 

Btw: very nice guide

Prayer Potion, Fish for your Cat (if he's hungry).

Just one Prayer Potion or more?

Why are all cats male?

 

You cannot survive without a Facemask down there and there are lot's of banshees.

No apostrophe in lots.

Banshees is a name, so should have a capital.

 

So when you are at the swamp, be ready for some Crocodiles. While walking through the swamp, you may need to push through reeds.

Having 'so' makes it sound too informal.

Be ready for them why? Are you going to do some sort of illegal trading?

If it's the same swamp as the Scabaras Quest, you will need to push through reeds.

 

Now when you are at the Fallen Pillar, climb over it and go upstairs.

Like with 'so', 'now' makes it sound too informal, so remove it.

 

Now go north and be sure to have your cat with you. Open these sealed doors:

 

http://i204.photobucket.com/albums/bb41/fa...sealed_door.png

Head north...

Are the doors behind your character in the picture or is it the line next to you?

 

And you will find yourself inside the tomb.

It's a whole new section with a sub-title so starting it with 'and' doesn't seem to fit since there's nothing in the section that it could be referring to.

 

Well it isn't because the both side walls of the room will collapse and you will discover two rooms.

Switch the word order of 'both' and 'the'.

 

One room has some Ranger Skeletons throwing rocks at you, other one has Skeletons casting battle spells on you.

Either add a word such as 'while' or 'the' after the comma or replace the comma with 'and'.

 

Let's start with Ranger Skeletons.

Why them and not something else? Either expand on the idea or get rid of this sentence.

 

Go inside the room and kill all the Ranger Skeletons.

Didn't you go inside the room above the picture?

 

Now destroy the door by clicking on it and run through the tunnel, but beware of the traps though.

Get rid of 'though'.

 

They will do 13 Damage on you and you can't evade them.

They will hit 13 damage on you and cannot be evaded.

 

Now open the next door and kill the 4 monsters and then the Mummy Warrior will climb out of his sarcophagus, so kill him too.

Open the next door and kill the four monsters. This will make the Mummy Warrior climb out of his sarcophagus, so kill him too.

 

Now pick up the key he dropped and use it with the doors to the east

 

*insert rest of paragraph*

The word 'now' is used six times in that paragraph. Change it so the sentences flow better without the repetition.

 

The same goes for the rest of the guide where 'now' is overused and completely ruins the flow of the guide.

When I was in the chamber with the 2 wholes, I lost connection and ended up outside. So you shouldn't log out in there aparently.

Oh yeah i forgot to add that. I logged out myself, but no data was lost (i mean if you already disabled the traps and logged out then after you go back in the traps would still be disabled).

As it says in the guide "Learn how to craft Slayer Helmets - 400 points".

 

It's there and explains that you need to 'pay' to learn how to do so.

 

 

You disabled the traps in the both tunnels, but not in the middle one (yet).

Why the brackets around 'yet'?

 

Congratulations you have disabled the traps in the middle tunnel.

Turn the next sentence into a new paragraph since it seems to be starting a new idea.

'Suggested' to have Protect from Missiles on? The rangers hit me 17+20 before switching prayer through Barrows armour. I'd say strongly suggested. :aware:
