Introducing: Tombs of Amascut

​​Long ago, the citizens of the Kharidian Desert lived prosperous and luxurious lives. All that changed when Amascut, the Goddess of Rebirth, became corrupted and warped. She became the Devourer, intent on consuming every soul in existence. Deep within the desert, an ancient tomb has long hidden a great power – and she is determined to harness it at any cost.

There is only one solution: take the fight to Amascut before it’s too late!

Requirements – Click to Expand (SPOILER WARNING!)

    • Contact!
      • Prince Ali Rescue
      • Icthlarin’s Little Helper
        • Gertrude’s Cat

Bosses Within The Tombs
Bosses – Click to Expand (SPOILER WARNING!)
Once a human warrior, Akkha made the mistake of joining a cult dedicated to the original form of Amascut, before she was corrupted into the Devourer. This cult had one desire: to be reborn in a perfected form. They performed a ritual and called upon Amascut, sacrificing themselves in her name. However, the poison used by Akkha failed to work correctly. He survived, trapped on the brink of death, becoming a perfect servant to the Devourer.
Ba-Ba was once the matriarch of a large troop of baboons. As she grew old, she feared for the future of her family, considering her heir to be incompetent. Amascut promised her immortality so that she could rule her family forever. However, in return, she demanded both Ba-Ba and her family serve her. Ba-Ba agreed, and was willingly corrupted by Amascut. This corruption granted her the immortality she desired, but bound her to Amascut.
Kephri is the last of an ancient race of long-lived scarabs. She lived in isolation for years, watching the desert from afar, gathering knowledge as she did. While initially content, over time, she started to desire children to pass her knowledge on to. Amascut claimed to have a way to give Kephri the children she desired, promising to make her a mother of scarabs even smarter than she was. However, Amascut twisted these words, destroying Kephri’s intelligence, making her nothing more than a mindless thrall.
Zebak was part of a large group of crocodiles living in the Elid. With so little food available, the group had to rely on their resourcefulness. However, Zebak was weak, and was unable to compete with the others. To survive, he used his resourcefulness in another way, luring the other crocodiles into traps so he could kill them and take their food. Before long, he was the only crocodile left. With nothing left to eat, Amascut promised him a lifetime supply of food in return for his service. He willingly agreed.

If there’s one thing any self-respecting ancient tomb pretty much guarantees, it’s the presence of hidden treasures. Brave the Tombs of Amascut and if you’re lucky you’ll come away with some pretty spectacular rewards. Here’s what to look out for.

Rewards – Click to Expand (SPOILER WARNING!)
As always, we refer to the in-game timings as cycles. Each cycle is equal to 0.6 seconds and is also commonly referred to as a ‘tick’ by the wider community.

Masori Armour

The Masori were powerful ranged weapon-wielders active during an ancient Kharidian war. They focused primarily on defending ordinary people from the violent thieves and murderers who sought to take advantage of the wartime chaos. This mighty clan has been long since disbanded, but their weapons can still be found in the palaces of wealthy Menaphites, and among the treasures of long-dead Pharaohs.


  • 80 Ranged
  • 30 Defence (or 80 when upgraded)
Stats for the standard Masori Armour.

Using plates broken down from Armadyl’s Armour and crafting them (with 90 Crafting) onto your Masori Armour pieces with a chisel, you can create the upgraded versions.

Breaking Down Values

  • Armadyl Helmet – 1 Armadyl Plate
  • Armadyl Chestplate – 4 Armadyl Plates
  • Armadyl Chainskirt – 3 Armadyl Plates

Crafting Values (with 90 Crafting)

  • Masori Helmet (Upgraded) – 1 Armadyl Plate
  • Masori Chestplate (Upgraded) – 4 Armadyl Plates
  • Masori Chainskirt (Upgraded) – 3 Armadyl Plates
Stats for the upgraded Masori Armour.

Shadow of Tumeken

When forces of the Ruinous Powers arrived in their lands, Tumeken and his people found themselves facing an enemy unlike any other. While his children, Amascut and Icthlarin, sought powerful allies to aid them, Tumeken hunted down a weapon of great power to use against this new threat. However, rather than claiming this weapon for himself, he instead used it to create the Shadow of Tumeken. This staff is powered by the sun itself, and with that brightest light comes the darkest of shadows…


  • 85 Magic
Stats for the Shadow of Tumeken.

Similar to other Powered Staves, the Shadow of Tumeken will have a built-in spell with charges powered by Soul and Chaos Runes. This staff will have an attack rate of five cycles and can only be used in PvM, like other powered Magic weapons.

Base max hit is calculated from the following formula: Magic Level / 3 + 1.

The Shadow of Tumeken also comes with two passive effects:

  • Magic Strength from gear is tripled (capped at a total of 100% Magic Strength).
  • Magic Accuracy from gear is tripled.

Note: These passive effects only apply to the in-built spell of the Shadow of Tumeken and won’t impact the bonuses applied to spells from any Spellbook.

Ward of Elidinis

Elidinis was the Goddess of Fertility and alongside her husband Tumeken, they were the joint leaders of the Menaphite Pantheon. But while Tumeken and Elidinis steered the people of the Kharidian Desert spiritually, it was the responsibility of the human Pharaoh to rule in practical matters. Osmumten was the last Pharaoh before the end of the ancient war, and he fought alongside Tumeken against enemy forces until the noble God sacrificed himself to end the conflict. After her husband’s death, Elidinis fled to mourn the loss of her family. Before she left, the Goddess gifted Osmumten with Tumeken’s Heka and her own broken Ward.


  • 80 Magic
  • 80 Defence
  • 80 Prayer
Stats for the uncharged Ward of Elidinis (left) and charged Ward of Elidinis (right).

The Ward of Elidinis will be your new best-in-slot magical shield. You’ll receive the broken Ward as rare loot from the Tombs of Amascut. With 90 Prayer and 90 Smithing, you’ll be able to combine the broken Ward with an Arcane Sigil and 10,000 Soul Runes to repair it.

Both the broken and fully repaired Wards can be equipped, but the broken Ward will be tradeable, and untradeable when fixed. Players can dismantle it to recover both the Sigil and the Ward, but the Runes will be lost. Dying in PvP will result in the Sigil and the broken Ward being dropped.

Osmumten’s Fang

Known to his people as Osmumten the Hunter, he was renowned for bringing down many of the land’s deadliest beasts. During his hunts, he wore armour and weapons crafted by the region’s finest artisans. One such weapon was his Fang, with which he was eventually buried.


  • 82 Attack
Stats for Osmumten’s Fang.

Osmumten’s Fang is a five-cycle weapon that packs a serious punch while on Stab. It’s decently effective against low defence NPCs, but it excels against monsters with a high defence (and does full damage to the Corporeal Beast, similar to spears). Alongside this, it has a special effect to ‘double roll’ on accuracy, which means it will roll twice for your accuracy when you attack and will take the highest roll from the two, meaning it’s way more accurate!


Ahmek was a formidable warrior who sought to capitalise on the political instability at the end of the war. He crafted a powerful ring which he imbued with the unstable energy left behind from Tumekin’s sacrifice. Ahmek sought to use this ring to emerge as a new power in the region; by forcibly uniting thieves and mercenaries under his command, he would overthrow Osmumten. His scheming proved fruitless, however, when the ring was stolen, and he was murdered in his sleep. The Menaphite Guards claimed the ring from the body of the murderous thief and dutifully presented it to the Pharaoh.

The Lightbearer is a ring for any adventurer looking to unload a deluge of Special Attacks and can be equipped by anybody fortunate enough to have one in their possession.

When equipped, your Special Attack energy will regenerate at twice the speed it usually does. Unequipping the ring will reset the Special Attack energy restoration timer.

Thread of Elidinis


  • 75 Crafting

With this being a somewhat magical raid, players suggested a potential upgrade to the Rune Pouch! It’s a very popular item used in almost all content. We propose adding the Thread of Elidinis, a newuntradeable reward.

This magical thread, once woven by an ancient seamstress, can be used together with a needle to imbue your Rune Pouch with magical energy – allowing you to store an additional type of Rune! You won’t be able to have both the new and old version of the Rune Pouch simultaneously as that might be atadtoo powerful.

If a player loses the Thread of Elidinis then they will need to re-obtain it through Tombs of Amascut. However, you will be able to obtain multiple threads (this will be a fairly common drop compared to other uniques, due to its untradeable nature) and not roll on the same unique drop table. You’ll also be able to de-grade the Rune Pouch to re-obtain the Thread – just in case you’re getting involved in risky business and worried about losing that all-important item!

Keris Partisan Jewels

If you’ve checked out the Keris Partisan from Beneath Cursed Sands, you’ll notice it has a jewel socket. Players can insert various untradeable jewels in it, all obtainable from Tombs of Amascut. Only one jewel can be used at a time, with each bestowing a different effect on the weapon.

These jewels canONLYbe used within Tombs of Amascut, aside from the Breach of the Scarab jewel which previously passed the polls. Some examples of jewels are:

  • Eye of the Corruptor:
    • Using this jewel grants the Keris Partisan a Special Attack,Wrath of Amascut, which costs 75% of your Special Attack energy.
    • Wrath of Amascut has 100% increased accuracy and 25% increased damage.
    • Any enemy hit by Wrath of Amascut will receive 25% increased damage for the next 6 seconds (10 cycles).
    • The Keris Partisan’s attack speed will be halved when using Wrath of Amascut. In other words, you’ll have to wait 8 cycles after using this Special Attack to be able to start attacking again.
  • Jewel of the Sun:
    • Using this jewel grants the Keris Partisan a passive ability to drain life from defeated enemies at the cost of prayer points.
    • If a killing blow is dealt to a creature within the Tombs of Amascut with a Keris Partisan sporting a Jewel of the Sun, the player will lose 5 Prayer points but gain 12 Hitpoints. This effect can overheal up to 20% over the player’s Hitpoints level.
    • The Jewel of the Sun gives the Keris Partisan +25% accuracy against creatures with less than 25% health.
    • Additionally, the jewel grants a Special Attack:Tumeken’s Light.
    • Tumeken’s Light costs 75% of the player’s Special Attack energy and 50 Prayer points in order to fully heal (and overheal) the player up to 20% above their Hitpoints level. This Special Attack also cures all poison, restores any drained stats and fully restores Run Energy.
  • Breach of the Scarab:Increases accuracy by 33% against Kalphites, Scarabs, and Beetles.Remember, this is the only jewel that can be used outside of the raid.
