Alright guys, I finally got out of that darned desert prison and moved forward in the quest…only to reach yet another road block. It all began when I forced myself to look at things from a different angle. For one, the only PCPs in there were slaves and guards. I couldn’t pose as a guard, I couldn’t fight the guards (they were combat level 50 while I’m a measly combat level 31), so the only option I had was to look like a slave. The one time I wasn’t apprehended by the guards was when I was picking at some of the copper outside so maybe it was when I was wielding my weapons?
I unequipped all of my armor (except for those fancy-shmancy desert robes) and I finally could walk among the peoples of the miner camp unhindered by those rapscallion guards. Hmmm, now what. continued to look around and I found a couple of key on the table outside my cell: one for the main gate and one for my cell. I went outside and started talking to people again, starting with the slaves. I soon came across one particular male slave who was just so planning a grand escape and needed some help. It took me a couple of tries but I got his handcuffs off and then we were going to trade clothes. (I needed to disguise myself as a slave, disgusting robes and everything to get into the underground mine where I was to find that woman’s daughter.) I thought I was all good and then this male slave decided to get picky; apparently he wanted the entire set of robes. I didn’t have the robe bottoms, only the shirt. Well, fine! Sheesh. I guess you can only try to escape once, so you better do it right.
Since I had the main gate key, I returned to Al Kharid to buy a robe bottom only thing is, is that I couldn’t find one. It took me ages but I finally realized there was a guy named Shantay right next to the entrance to the entrance to the desert. I had walked right past him… Sweet.
So, with my full set of robes I returned to the slave and traded with him. He moved on to freedom as I headed down into the mines, around a labyrinth of slaves to a prison guard who required I bribe him with a certain pineapple. REALLY?! COME ON. This girl is definitely NOT worth all this effort. Seriously.
Alas, I digress.
Out of the mines I go to the Tenti peoples and attempt to get this “special” pineapple. Well, of course they have something for me to do first. They need some top secret plans hidden away in a chest in the miners’ camp. I need to get them and build this ultimate weapon. COOL, GUYS. Soon enough I’m back at the miner’s camp talking to the captain, trying to distract im enough to let me into that chest. This is one of those parts where you may try everything, multiple times and it still won’t work. Dig deep, everyone, you’ll get through this. I told him there was a Fire for about the fifth time and he finally took me seriously and got a bit worried. BOOM. THOSE PLANS ARE MINE, YOU FOOL.
Alright now back to the Tentis with the plans. Oh, now they want me to build it because they can’t. Ok, so you want these plans that aren’t yours to build a weapon that you don’t have the skills to make… Seems legit. I agreed to build their weapon for them because I guess I don’t have anything better to do.
Now, I need at least twenty feathers and a bronze bar. I had to return to Shantay to buy some more stuffs, only this time I travelled my magic carpet. I bought the feathers however, he was all out of bronze bars. Ugh.
Lumbridge has a copper and tin mine just South of it so I teleported over there and went to mine some ore, smelted it, and returned via magic carpet to the Tentis. Fortunately they had an anvil that I could use oh but wait, I wasn’t a high enough smelting level to make this weapon.
My thought process:
- Well, f*** it. That girl can die for all I care.
- Alright no, come on. I need to level up anyway.
- Off to the Burthrope mines!
Thus begins the tedious process of raising my smelting level.
