Saba was an old hermit who lived in a cave on Death Plateau, north of the Warriors' Guild. He grumpily agreed to help players continue the Death Plateau quest to find a secret way to the offending, noisy trolls in return for some peace and quiet. Additionally, Saba was the answer for Treasure Trail clue anagram A BAS.
- In one dialect of the Philippines, "saba" means "noise" which relates to Saba because he himself dislikes the noise.
- Additionally, it is Aramaic (and Modern Hebrew) for "grandfather", which may relate to Saba since he is grey-haired.
