Ankh detail

The Ankh is an offhand item found in the Apmeken tomb in the wall surrounding the Monkey colony after the Do No Evil quest. The cave can be entered by using the "Climb to exit" on a point near the top of the south wall. You will also find an Apmeken mask in the cave. In order to see the fissure you must have also completed the Diamond In The Rough quest.

Entering the tomb requires 80 Agility, rewarding 20,000 Agility experience when entering for the first time.(Note: exp boosts and double exp can be used to boost the exp reward.)

Wearing the Ankh together with the Scabaras mask while in the desert is one of the elite Desert Tasks.

The tomb where the Ankh can be obtained.


  • This symbol comes from ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs. It symbolises the key of life, which is synonymous with the key of the Nile.
  • On release, the Ankh was given 20 higher accuracy than the Virtus book, making it the best magic offhand weapon in the game. However, this was changed in an update on 11 December 2012.
  • When wielding the Ankh when sheathed, it will appear unsheathed.
