Official description Edit
|“|| Lazim the sculptor has a sad tale to tell - his days of making art are over, and now all he can do is carp at adventurers as they make a statue for him in the desert. Although, isn't just south of the Bandit Camp an odd place to be putting up a statue?
Help Lazim out with his artistic endeavours, and learn more as this quest goes deeper into the history of RuneScape than you might expect.
|Start point|| |
Talk to Lazim south of the desert Bandit Camp.
|Items required||Items from the toolbelt are not listed unless they do not work or are not automatically added. |
|Enemies to defeat||None|
See Enakhra's Temple for maps of the temple that features in this quest. If you need to teleport out of the temple during the quest, you can re-enter the temple through a secret entrance just east of the spot on which you built the statue.
A sculptor in the desertEdit
(You can use the bandit camp lodestone in order to teleport to the starting point of the quest more quickly, assuming Desert Treasure is completed. )
Speak to Lazim just outside the desert quarry. He will tell you about how he wishes to sculpt but had an accident and cannot do it himself. Offer to help him, and get 32 kilograms of sandstone by mining it in the quarry (if you forgot your pickaxe take one from the rock nearby). Lazim will not take more than 32 kg, so if necessary, break up your blocks with your chisel. Players will find it much simpler to deal with Lazim if they bring him their sandstone after each piece they mine. Also, mine 1 coal if you didn't start with one.
Building a statueEdit
After you've given Lazim exactly 32 kg, he will attach them with magic to make a 32kg sandstone block. Use your chisel on the block that he gives you to make a sandstone base. Talk to him again, then use the base on the flat ground next to him.
You now need 20 kg of sandstone for the body. After you've given him the required amount and he gives you the 20kg sandstone block, use your chisel on it to make a sandstone body and then attach it to the base. Once attached to the base, chisel the body once more to get more intricate details on the statue.
Lazim will tell you to create a head next. You must then choose a head to sculpt. For players who have completed The Giant Dwarf, this choice may seem familiar. Your options include Lazim, Icthlarin, Zamorak or a camel. You also have the choice of using your own head, but Lazim will refuse. To create the head mine a 5 kg block of granite (make sure it's GRANITE, not sandstone!) then chisel it. You will need to create another head later, so mine a second 5 kg block of granite as well but do not chisel it. You will need later on in the quest.
An "accidental" discoveryEdit
Use the head on the statue. The weight of the statue will cause the ground underneath it to collapse, making you and Lazim fall into an ancient temple. Once inside, you'll find the statue shattered, so speak to Lazim.
NOTE: If for whatever reason you leave the temple, there is a rock directly east of the spot you made the statue on that will open up to allow you access.
Take the silver M sigil off the pedestal just south of where Lazim and you fell. Now, use your chisel on the statue to get a stone left arm, stone right arm, stone left leg, and stone right leg, which you'll use as keys to unlock the doors to the rooms. (Note that if the sigil is still in your inventory you have not actually unlocked the door--they might be automatically removed. Be sure to click the green button with a > under the message, "You place the sigil in the lock. It fits exactly.")
Go around the rooms by walking in a circle. As you encounter one of the four doors, examine and then unlock it with the corresponding body part.(You no longer need to examine the doors. The act of simply clicking them unlocks them and causes the cutscene) Watch the cut scenes of Enakhra and take the Z sigil, R sigil, and K sigil as you pass. These, with the M sigil, make up the consonants of Zamorak.
After you've unlocked all of the outer doors with your four limbs, return to speak to Lazim. He will give you the head you created earlier. Go toward the middle and use the sigils to unlock the four doors. (You can examine the doors to learn which sigil will open them.) Unlock all four doors from the inside, then go up the ladder and place the head on the pedestal in front of the barrier. The head fits, but it's not big enough to unlock the gate.
The magical barrierEdit
Use your soft clay on the pedestal to make a mould, and then use the chisel on the remaining piece of medium-sized granite to carve a new stone head. Place this granite camel head into the pedestal to be greeted by another cut scene. If you forget to bring another 5kg Granite then go back to the room with Lazim in it and climb up the ladder and climb the sand pile to get out of the temple. (Optional: use a second soft clay on the granite head on the pedestal to make a camel mask for yourself. If you want to make a camel mask after the quest, just go to the pedestal again and create one with soft clay.)Note: You can also go back to the surface, mine a clay from the quarry, and make another mould with it.
Lazim now appears next to you. Talk to him, and he will tell you to solve the puzzles in the rooms. You must light the four globes on the pedestal—based on the four classes of the Ancient Magicks spells—before you can pass the magical barrier and proceed north. Here is how to light each one:
*Note you have to talk to Lazim and Pentyn before you can do the Ice and Smoke puzzles. Currently a bug causing players to DC when trying to complete Ice and Smoke puzzles.
Take the north-west corridor, and talk to the Pentyn. He will speak of how he believes you to be a Mahjarrat and how he has been tortured for many years. Give him a loaf of bread (or a cake which reminds him of his family) . Be careful not to eat the food, right-click it to use it on him. He'll still be stuck but will no longer be hungry, and you'll be able to ask him all three questions about the temple.Ice
Take the west corridor, and cast any fire spell on the frozen fountain to thaw it. (Select auto-cast on a fire spell and use the option 'melt'.) Make sure to have a main hand magic weapon wielded.
Take the east corridor, and investigate each brazier to see which item belongs to it. Use the appropriate item on the brazier to light it. The items are: Log, oak log, willow log, maple log, white candle, and coal. If you linger in the room before lighting a brazier, tiny biting insects swarm all over you, rapidly hitting 10 life points.Smoke
Take the north-east corridor, and cast a Wind bolt (or better) on the furnace grate to clear the smoke out of the room. NOTE: If auto-casting does not work for this, you must right click the spell from list and choose "Cast" then click the furnace grate. As of the Dual-spell update on March 4th only one spell must be activated for this to work.
An unexpected discoveryEditPile of bones. Climb down the northern stone ladder in this room. You'll meet a Boneguard. Talk to it. It will tell you that it was put under Enakhra's control. Agree to seal her in her temple by building a wall. Take three sandstone blocks from the pile of rubble and use them to build up the wall, using your chisel to trim each brick after you set it up.
Once you've built the wall, Enakhra will speak.
You will then see a short cut scene.
Enakhra will destroy your wall and teleport away to have her final battle with Akthanakos.

- Camulet, which allows you to talk to camels and teleport to the temple four times. It can be recharged by using camel dung on it, with such a method able to be used an unlimited number of times.
- Camel mask (use a piece of clay on the pedestal with the globes on it to make)
- 2 extra spins on the Squeal of Fortune
Required for completingEdit
- Lazim says, "The last adventurer to help me was carrying around a girl in a barrel." This is a reference to The Tourist Trap.
- The globes are named after the types of Ancient Magicks spells (bloodfire, ice, rock, and gale)
- Upon the completion of this quest, one's Adventurer's Log will read: "I freed Akthanakos from his boneguard curse, which enraged his rival, Enakhra. They’ve both gone north to continue their battle."
- After completing the quest, if you talk to Juna, your character will say, "...And then Akthanakos and Enakhra went away to the north to continue fighting!" to which she replies, "A battle between two such powerful beings will take much time and unleash much energy. I hope that the natural world is not damaged in this conflict!"
- The four sigils, Z, M, R, and K are the four consonants in Zamorak's name.
- If you look carefully during each of the cutscenes, the specks of dark grey that appear sometimes appear as Zamorak's symbol.
- When falling down the hole your player will say "ow, my duodenum". This is a reference to The Simpsons.
- The name of Akthanakos is based on two greek words, a and thanatos, which - when used in a combination - mean "immortal".
- 43 Prayer was previously required for the quest, as Akthanakos attacked you as a boneguard, and you had to use Protect from Melee to defend yourself. Likewise, 39 Magic was required to use Crumble Undead on a fight with a Boneguard that emerged from the bones you have to climb over to reach Enakhra.
- A glitch has been discovered with the fountain in the temple. If trying to melt it while holding an Ahrims wand and an offhand drygore mace, a player will receive the connection lost message and the fountain will not be melted.
- Ironically, Enakhra uses Ancient Magiks to teleport away- a Zarosian style of magic- when Enakhra loathes Zaros with a passion.
