CONTACT QUEST WALKTHROUGH
Speak with the High Priest located at the temple in the southwestern corner of Sophanem. He needs help getting Menaphos to release their quarantine on Sophanem. A cutscene will show the High Priest's attempts to bring a delegation to Menaphos being blocked. Ask the High Priest about possible ways to enter Menaphos. Ask him about ways to approach from underground and he will tell you about about the lesser deity Scarabas, whose followers were proficient at making subterranean buildings. He suggests you talk to Jex, the caretaker of the temple of Lesser Deities.

Head to the temple in the northeast corner of the city and speak with Jex. He will tell you of strange scarab creatures which come from the cellars which destroy the temple and the bank underneath it. He will send you down into the ruined bank with his blessing and a suggestion to take a light source and a tinderbox. Climb down the trapdoor. You will be in a maze filled with high combat monsters.

Head west as soon as you enter the maze. Try to avoid the floor traps. When you come across the fork in the road beyond the first scarab mage, go south. Immediately go east and search the floor to attempt to pass the trap. Follow the path and avoid the wall crushers. To pass them safely, you will have to move right next to them, then click diagonally to pass. Beyond the wall crushers is a wall covered with odd markings. Search the odd markings and attempt to disarm. Success depends on your thieving level. Take the path heading west and beware of the Scarab mages. You will come to a large intersection where you should head south. There is a yellow scarab on the west wall Do not stand in front of it or else you will drop into the multi-combat dungeon below filled with Scarab mages and Locust riders and your light source will be extinguished. Go south to the fork in the paths and go east or west, depending on whether you prefer wall crushers or thieving obstacles. Once around the wall, go south through another set of wall crushers, then head due west on the middle path to the ladder, being sure to not come near the two yellow scarabs on the southern wall.

Go down the ladder and follow the path. At the end you will find a giant room, and by the entrance Kaleef's Body. Search the body to find a Parchment which you should read. Go further into the room and talk to Maisa. He needs to get in contact with Osman, but does not trust you to do it for him, so he asks you questions about the Prince Ali Rescue Quest. He will first ask where the prince was taken, the answer being "Draynor Village." Next he will ask you who helped you rescue the prince. The answer is "Leela." He will now ask you to bring Osman to him.

Get to Al Kharid and talk to Osman about Sophanem. He will give you a small amount of history on the situation. Eventually it will come time to convince him to go down to Sophanem in person. Normal motivations will not stir him. You will have to point out that it would drive a wedge between the Menaphite cities. This is enough to get him to agree to go to Sophanem, but he has some things to do prior to heading down. Go ahead down on your own to meet him there.

Osman is just north of the gates to Sophanem, but cannot get in the city as he is too old to scale the walls. Tell him you know of a secret entrance to the north and a cutscene will show him within the city getting into the Temple of the Lesser Deities. After the cutscene, retrace your steps through the dungeon until you reach the ladder you went down earlier. Go down and you will watch a cutscene of Osman talking to Maisa. Osman will be attacked by a Giant Scarab and will disappear. When you are ready to battle the Giant Scarab, head down the path. When you begin attacking the Giant Scarab (level 191), a Scarab Mage and two Locust Riders - one ranger and one meleer - will spawn around it and begin attacking you. Focus completely on the Scarab, however, as killing it causes the other three to disappear. When you have succeeded in killing it, Osman will reappear telling you that he had slipped into the shadows. He will eventually thank you and leave telling you to take Kaleef's Dagger - Keris - as a reward. Head back to the High Priest in Sophanem and talk to him to finish the quest.
