Beginning the quest

Shilo Village Quest Map.png

Start by talking to Chat head image of Mosol Rei, File:Mosol Rei chathead.png Mosol Rei at the entrance to Seravel chathead.png Shilo Village. Warning: If you ask, "What danger is there around here?", you will be attacked by a couple of Undead One (Skeletal).png undead ones. A quick way of getting there is using the Link to gnome glider gnome glider to Link to Karamja Karamja (aka Gandius) then crossing the stepping stones towards the south-west (30 Skill icon of Agility, File:Agility icon.png Agility required, but you can still cross by falling off; you'll automatically swim to the other side), or you could use Link to Fairy rings fairy ring code CKR and run south across the bridge, then east on the path behind Shilo Village.

Select the following five options:

  1. "Why do I need to run?" (Option 1)
  2. "Rashiliyia? Who is she?" (Option 1)
  3. "What can we do?" (Option 1)
  4. "I'll go to see the Shaman" (Option 4)
  5. "Yes, I'm sure and I'll take the Wampum belt to Trufitus." (Option 2)

Mosol Rei should give you a Item image of %7B%7B%3Awampum+belt%7D%7D, File:wampum belt.png wampum belt to take to Chat head image of Trufitus, File:Trufitus chathead.png Trufitus (start of Link to Jungle Potion Jungle Potion) who is in the house north-east of Link to Tai Bwo Wannai Tai Bwo Wannai. Use the wampum belt on Trufitus, and he will tell you that things look very bleak. (Chat options 2 2 1 3 1). Ask him about a legend and the temple, and tell him to tell you more. He will have almost no hope of anyone finding the temple of Link to Ah Za Rhoon Ah Za Rhoon. You must state that you will look for the temple, and once you affirm your intent to search, Trufitus will take the wampum belt from you, and this Link to Quests quest will turn yellow in your Link to Quest journal Quest Journal.

Note: All items except good Link to food food, Link to armour armour, Link to Teleportation teleports, and the Item image of %7B%7B%3Abones%7D%7D, File:bones.png bones can be purchased at Link to Jiminua's Jungle Store Jiminua's Jungle Store en route to visiting Chat head image of Trufitus, File:Trufitus chathead.png Trufitus.

Ah Za Rhoon

Items needed: Spade, unlit torch or candle, tinderbox, rope, chisel.

Note: You may want to bring decent defensive Link to armour armour or Prayer potion(1).png Prayer potions to defend against the Undead One (Skeletal).png undead ones.

To get to the temple from Link to Tai Bwo Wannai Tai Bwo Wannai, go east to the river, cross the log near the crashed Link to Gnome glider glider, and go south along the river until you reach a mound of earth surrounded by rocks. If you have completed Link to The Grand Tree The Grand Tree, a quicker way to get there is to teleport to the Link to Duel Arena Duel Arena using a Item image of %7B%7B%3Aring+of+dueling%7D%7D, File:ring of dueling.png ring of dueling and take the glider to Gandius.

Location of Ah Za Rhoon

Use your Item image of %7B%7B%3Aspade%7D%7D, File:spade.png spade on it to find a fissure. Use your Unlit torch.png torch or Item image of %7B%7B%3Acandle%7D%7D, File:candle.png candle on the fissure to light it up. (It will drop down, and you will be unable to retrieve it.) Add a Item image of %7B%7B%3Arope%7D%7D, File:rope.png rope to the fissure, securing it to the lip. Search the fissure and climb down into the dungeon below (requiring 32 Skill icon of Agility, File:Agility icon.png Agility). Note: If you wait too long before climbing down, the dirt mound will respawn and cover the entry. You don't need another torch and rope to open it back up, just right click and search it twice to resume the quest.

You will be under attack from Undead One (Skeletal).png undead ones (level 61 - 73), but it is not a Link to multicombat area multicombat area. If you kill them, sometimes a cloud of Link to Poison Gas poison gas will be released and hit you for damage.

In this cave system, you will need to find four items.

  • Item image of %7B%7B%3AStone-plaque%7D%7D, File:Stone-plaque.png Stone-plaque: There is a strange-looking stone (4 on the map) on the other side of the pool, east of the smashed table. Use a Item image of %7B%7B%3Achisel%7D%7D, File:chisel.png chisel on the stone to obtain the Stone-plaque.

Close to the strange-looking stone in which you got the stone-plaque from, you will see a smashed table (3 on the map). South-west of the table is a 'cave in' area (2 on the map). Search it to crawl through to the next cave.

  • Item image of %7B%7B%3ATattered+scroll%7D%7D, File:Tattered scroll.png Tattered scroll: Head north until you reach the end of the ruins. To the west, near the wall there will be some loose rocks (6 on the map). Search them. If you fail, you will get hit upwards of 4 points.
  • Item image of %7B%7B%3ACrumpled+scroll%7D%7D, File:Crumpled scroll.png Crumpled scroll: Follow the cave around the bend, and head south-east until you come to a small dead-end branch. Search the sacks next to a smashed table (7 on the map).
  • Item image of %7B%7B%3AZadimus+corpse%7D%7D, File:Zadimus corpse.png Zadimus corpse: Head north to the far end of the cavern, where you find the old gallows (8 on the map). Search them and remove the corpse body. If you have all 4 items, from here you can simply teleport out.

Taking the boat out of Ah Za Rhoon.

To exit the dungeon, you can craft the smashed table into a raft and use it to leave. This does not always work; it is possible to get the message that there isn't enough wood left. In this case, you will have to leave by other means. If you want, you can continue south, then east to the end of the cave. Search the rocks you find there to leave via the waterfall. If you fall leaving this way, however, you can take a lot of damage. You will find yourself near the stepping stones to the east of Seravel chathead.png Shilo Village.

Scrolls from Ah Za Rhoon and the proper burial

Zadimus' corpse is buried.

Read both the scrolls and the plaque. Then, use both scrolls, the plaque, and the corpse on Chat head image of Trufitus, File:Trufitus chathead.png Trufitus. Then, go to the tribal statue west of Trufitus' hut, and bury the Item image of %7B%7B%3AZadimus+corpse%7D%7D, File:Zadimus corpse.png Zadimus corpse to make the Chat head image of Spirit of Zadimus, File:Spirit of Zadimus chathead.png Spirit of Zadimus appear. He will give you a Item image of %7B%7B%3Abone+shard%7D%7D, File:bone shard.png bone shard. Take the bone shard back to Trufitus, and he'll tell you to look for Link to Tomb of Bervirius Bervirius' tomb.

Note: Be sure to read the scrolls and the plaque, or he won't tell you about Bervirius' tomb! Also, don't worry about the quest guide not updating too much. Once you've got all the items, you should be fine to go to Bervirius' tomb.

Tomb of Bervirius

You now need to go to the Link to Tomb of Bervirius Tomb of Bervirius. The fastest way to get here is fairy ring to CKR then run South. From Link to Tai Bwo Wannai Tai Bwo Wannai, go south towards Link to Cairn Isle Cairn Isle, climb the rocks and cross the bridge to reach Cairn Isle (just below the Link to Horned graahk Graahk Skill icon of Hunter, File:Hunter icon.png hunting area). You can fall and take damage especially with low Skill icon of Agility, File:Agility icon.png Agility. Note that running over the bridge with high Agility has a higher success rate.

The Tomb of Bervirius.

Once you're at the other side, search the well-stacked rocks on the north side of the island, and enter the crawl-way (32 Agility needed). You may become stuck many times, but keep trying. Head south to the dolmen, and search it to get a Item image of %7B%7B%3Asword+pommel%7D%7D, File:sword pommel.png sword pommel, a Item image of %7B%7B%3Alocating+crystal%7D%7D, File:locating crystal.png locating crystal (you take 10 damage if you drop it) and Item image of %7B%7B%3ABervirius+notes%7D%7D, File:Bervirius notes.png Bervirius notes (if you lose these items, you will need Item image of %7B%7B%3Acharcoal%7D%7D, File:charcoal.png charcoal and Item image of %7B%7B%3Apapyrus%7D%7D, File:papyrus.png papyrus to get to Bervirius notes again). Exit the cave by climbing the rock slide (2). (At this point you can teleport out, as you sometimes fall and take damage trying to climb out. It is advisable to teleport to a fairy ring and go to D K P for the next section)

2 - Rock slide

3 - Dolmen

Read the scrolls. You now need to make a new necklace. Use a Item image of %7B%7B%3Achisel%7D%7D, File:chisel.png chisel on the sword pommel to make Item image of %7B%7B%3Abone+beads%7D%7D, File:bone beads.png bone beads. If you don't already have Item image of %7B%7B%3Abronze+wire%7D%7D, File:bronze wire.png bronze wire, use your Item image of %7B%7B%3Abronze+bar%7D%7D, File:bronze bar.png bronze bar on an anvil (there is one north-west of Chat head image of Trufitus, File:Trufitus chathead.png Trufitus), and choose to make bronze wire. Use this on the beads to make the Item image of %7B%7B%3Abeads+of+the+dead%7D%7D, File:beads of the dead.png beads of the dead necklace. You're now ready to take on the final boss.

Note: DO NOT drop the sword pommel or the bone beads (made from the sword pommel) by accident. It will turn to dust, and you will have to go get it again.

Tomb of Rashiliyia

The hidden doors to the Tomb of Rashiliyia.

Items needed: Chisel, bone shard, beads of the dead necklace, locating crystal, food, weapon, armour, 3 regular bones OR kill undead to get bones in the dungeon. It is advisable to bring bones and have an emergency teleport if your character is low level. You can kill chickens in Tai Bwo Wannai Village to get regular bones if you need some.

Tip: If you have access to the Link to Fairy rings fairy ring network, you can use the karambwan Link to Fishing spots fishing spot fairy ring to travel just north of the Link to Rashiliyia's Tomb Tomb of Rashiliyia entrance (DKP).

Now head East to the river and cross the log near the crashed glider. Link to Rashiliyia's Tomb Rashiliyia's Tomb is north of the crashed Link to gnome glider gnome glider, a bit south from the coast. You might run into The Shaikahan.png The Shaikahan (level 83), who you cannot damage with regular weapons. East of the Shaikahan, look for a searchable palm tree. It should be noted that the entrance is hidden behind a hill and is most visible if you are facing south. Search the palm trees to find two doors. Search these doors to find the shape of the keyhole, and then use your Item image of %7B%7B%3Achisel%7D%7D, File:chisel.png chisel on the Item image of %7B%7B%3Abone+shard%7D%7D, File:bone shard.png bone shard to make a Item image of %7B%7B%3ABone+key+%28Shilo+Village%29%7D%7D, File:Bone key (Shilo Village).png bone key, put on the Item image of %7B%7B%3Abeads+of+the+dead%7D%7D, File:beads of the dead.png beads of the dead necklace, and use the key on the door to enter.

3 - Skeleton door
4 - Dolmen

You'll find Undead One (Skeletal).png undead ones all throughout the dungeon in a Link to multicombat area multicombat area - more will be summoned if you pick up the coins, which turn to dust. They are inaccurate, but can hit hard (9).


Running past the Link to undead undead, go through the ancient gates (while wearing the beads of the dead necklace) and down the rock slope (hard to get back up), head west, then south, then south-west until you find some doors. Note: Other sets of dummy doors exist if you take a wrong turn. Use three regular Item image of %7B%7B%3Abones%7D%7D, File:bones.png bones on these doors. If for any reason you leave the room, the three bones will not be necessary to enter it again. Enter and keep the Item image of %7B%7B%3ABeads+of+the+dead%7D%7D, File:Beads of the dead.png beads on and search the dolmen.

Lure Nazastarool to the northern part of the dolmen to safespot him.

You will be attacked by Nazastarool.png Nazastarool, a level 91 Link to zombie zombie. He uses Link to Melee Melee throughout the battle. You can Link to Safe spot safespot all three forms from any side of the dolmen. After you defeat him, he will turn into a level 68 Skeleton.png skeleton. After you defeat him, he'll turn into a level 93 Chat head image of ghost, File:ghost chathead.png ghost. Once you have defeated the ghost, you will get the Item image of %7B%7B%3ARashiliyia+corpse%7D%7D, File:Rashiliyia corpse.png corpse of Rashiliyia. If you die when you are fighting, you will have to fight only those you did not defeat again, not all three forms!

Tip: Between forms, a dialogue comes in the conversation window. In extremis, perform some other action, like burying the spare bones you brought, or inspecting your quest log, and the next incarnation will not immediately appear, giving you time to heal, leave, etc.
Note: A bug sometimes allows you to summon a second ghost while fighting the first, which is not a good idea. You get two corpses but only one in your inventory.

To leave, simply return to where you entered—remember to use your key on the door to exit. It may be recommended for lower level players to instead teleport out. If you attack an undead one while holding Rashiliya's corpse, her spirit will appear, and a message displays in the chat box: "You feel invisible hands starting to choke you..." You will then be briefly Link to Stun (status) stunned and unable to act, while Rashiliya spawns several more undead ones to fight you, in a similar manner as what happens upon trying to pick up the coins. Finally, if you attempt to open the doors to exit the cave without using your key on the door, your character will say:

"Oh no, I'm going to be stuck in here forever!
How will I ever get out!
I'm too young to die!"

Rashiliyia's corpse

Now, you need to find a proper burial place for Item image of %7B%7B%3ARashiliyia+corpse%7D%7D, File:Rashiliyia corpse.png Rashiliyia's remains. The clue to this location can be found in the Item image of %7B%7B%3Atattered+scroll%7D%7D, File:tattered scroll.png tattered scroll that was found in Link to Ah Za Rhoon Ah Za Rhoon: "a tomb that is surrounded by and level with the sea. The only remedy for containing the spirits of witches and the undead."

Rashiliyia is finally laid to rest.

Go back to the Link to Tomb of Bervirius Tomb of Bervirius on Link to Cairn Isle Cairn Isle west from Seravel chathead.png Shilo Village, and use the corpse on the dolmen. Chat head image of Rashiliyia, File:Rashiliyia chathead.png Rashiliyia herself will appear before you, thanking you for letting her rest in peace and will give you your reward.

Tip: If you have access to the Link to Fairy rings fairy ring network, you can simply use the fairy ring code northwest of the exit of the Link to Rashiliyia's Tomb Tomb of Rashiliyia, and teleport from there to Cairn Isle (CKR). To walk out of Shilo village, go through both front gates and climb over the cart.
