  1. Summoning Obelisk:
    Our tour begins just outside the city. Around the North Eastern corner, near Lizards, you can find a small obelisk to charge your Summoning points.

    Summoning Obelisk

  2. Travel:
    Along the Northern wall of the city is the Rug merchant. Talking to him, you can pay for passage to Pollnivneach.


  3. Swords:
    Just inside the Northern gate, we find Urbi's sword shop.


  4. Musician and Plague Animals:
    Slightly farther West, we find a Musician as well as several Plague cows and Plague frogs. While the frogs can be attacked, you can only pet the cows.

    Musician and Plague Animals

  5. Pyramid Plunder:
    The pyramid found South of the gate contains the Minigame Pyramid Plunder. Access to the minigame varies, it can be accessed through any one of the four doors around the pyramid. However, which door will grant you access changes. Once you make it inside, you will encounter the Guardian mummy who can explain the minigame, recharge your Pharaoh's sceptre/Sceptre of the gods, and/or begin a round of the minigame.

    Pyramid Plunder

  6. Temple to the Lesser Gods:
    Farther to the East, we find the Temple to the Lesser Gods, watched over by Jex. In the South Eastern corner of this building you will find a trap door. Climbing down this trapdoor, leads to a bank (accessible after completion of Contact!) and access to the Sophanem Dungeon even farther below.

     Temple to the Lesser Gods

  7. Shortcut:
    Behind the temple is a hole in the wall. This hole once lead just through the wall to the obelisk on the other side. Now it leads to the end of a tunnel found North East of the city, near the Agility Pyramid.


  8. Crafting:
    South of the Temple we find a Spinning wheel (circled in blue) and a potter's wheel (circled in yellow), as well as Jamila's stall that sells crafting supplies (circled in red). In this area you will also find Siamun and a Carpenter.


  9. Klenter's Pyramid:
    West of the crafting area is Klenter's pyramid and, outside, the Sphinx standing guard, only permitting those with a cat to enter. This pyramid is accessed during Icthlarin's Little Helper and looting a chest from within is required for the Master Quest Cape. Unlike the Pyramid Plunder pyramid, there is only one entrance on the Northern edge.

     Klenter's Pyramid

  10. Embalmer:
    Farther West, near the edge of the river, you can find the Embalmer. He sells several items that are necessary for the embalming process.


  11. Bake stall and Suntrap:
    Heading slightly South and back East, we can find Neite and Neferti the Camel wandering near Nathifa's Bake Stall and the suntrap. The suntrap can be used to create a Pile of salt.

     Bake stall and Suntrap

  12. Eastern Gate:
    Along the wall to the East is a gate. This provides easy access to Camel warriors, Crocodile, Lizards, as well as the small obelisk listed at point 1.

     Eastern Gate

  13. Itchlarian's Temple Altar:
    South of here is a larger Temple to Icthlarian that houses several Priests, a High Priest, and an altar which you can use to recharge your Prayer points. This is also where you can begin Contact! and Dealing with Scabaras.

     Itchlarian's Temple Altar

  14. Menaphos:
    Directly West is the bridge that leads to Menaphos. After completion of 'Phite Club, you will be able to travel back and forth between the 2 cities here. Prior to this, you can access Sophanem from the other side once you have accessed Menaphos via The Jack of Spades. However, you are NOT able to travel back to Menaphos via this route.


  15. Sophanem Slayer Dungeon:
    On the South West corner, at the base of Icthlarin's Temple, is the access to the Sophanem Slayer Dungeon. Inside you will find all of the corrupted and akh creatures, as well as The Magister.

     Sophanem Slayer Dungeon

  16. Plover Hunting:
    Along the shore, South of the Slayer Dungeon, you can find several Rockodiles that are used to catch the nearby Plover. There are also several palm trees along the water's edge that you can chop and use to set the traps.

     Plover Hunting

  17. Luminous Memories:
    Finally, we make it to the end. At the Southernmost point of the city we find the Luminous wisp colony where you can harvest enriched and normal memories.

     Luminous Memories
