Starting the quest

By speaking to Kangai Mau

Kangai MauHe can be found inside the Food Shop in Brimhaven.

He is looking for someone with Thieving skills and knows how to sneak around. Ask him what the mission is about and he will tell you he needs someone to go to Ardougne to the House of Lord Handelmort, who has a Tribal Totem that belongs to Kangai's Tribe.

Getting the Tribal Totem

Items needed: 30 Gold Coins (or 15 with Karamja Gloves 1)

Handelmort's Mansion

Items needed: 30 Gold Coins (or 15 with Karamja Gloves 1)

Handelmort's place in East Ardougne
Take the boat to East Ardougne (from the docks north of Brimhaven) and go to Handelmort's Mansion, north-west of the Market Place in East Ardougne. When you try to go in, you will find the Door is locked. Speak with Horacio the Gardener and ask him who he is. Then ask him if he does the garden round the back too and he will tell you the combination to get into the house is Handelmort's middle name.

Handelmort's Middle Name

Items needed: /

guide bookGo to the Estate Agent's House (marked with estate agent symbol on your minimap) just south of the Mansion and pick up the Guide Book from the table there. Read the Book to find out Handelmort's Middle Name is 'KURT'

Finding a way into Handelmort's Mansion

Items needed: /

wizard Cromperty
Go to the House in the far north-east corner and speak with Wizard Cromperty. Ask him what his invention is and he will tell you he is working on a Teleportation Block. This Block allows him to locate it anywhere in the world and! teleport anything directly to it. Now ask him to be teleported. You will be teleported just a few blocks away to the R.P.D.T. depot in the south-east corner of East Ardougne.

address labelInvestigate the two Crates on top of each other to the north and you will find out they are addressed to Handlemort's Mansion. You will take the Address Label off. Investigate the single Crate south of the other two and you will read the Address Label that says this Crate is to be shipped to the Wizards of Mysthalin and that it is ready to be shipped of.

This Crate obviously contains the Teleportation Block. Use the Label you got from the other two Crates on this one and you will place the Label over the existing one. Speak with one of the R.P.D.T. employees and ask him when the Crate will be delivered. The employee will tell you it can be done immediately.

Go back to Wizard Cromperty and ask him to be teleported again and you will be inside Handelmort's Mansion... Smart eh :)

The Lock

Go through the Door to the west and try to open the next Door.

If you don't investigate the Stairs first, and try to go upstairs you will set off the Trap. If this happens, you will fall into a small dungeon below the town, with some Rats level 6 in it. Run to the south-west corner to get out and return to Wizard Cromperty. Ask him to teleport you again. You won't have to unlock the Door anymore. So investigate the Stairs, then Climb them.

Tips & Extra Info

  • If you have finished all the easy tasks in the Karamja Achievement Diary the trips to Brimhaven and back will only cost you 15 Gold Coins. Don't forget to wear your Karamja Gloves while you pay for them.
  • If you have forgotten to take money for the boat trips to and from East Ardougne, there is a bank below in the Volcano Dungeon. The Volcano is situated to your east. Go down the hole and then go down again. The bank is a little to your west.
