Beyond the Sophanem Slayer Dungeon, Shifting Tombs and Faction system that we've covered in the preceding weeks, there are three new quests in the city (in addition to Jack of Spades):

  • Crocodile Tears
  • Our Man in the North
  • 'Phite Club

That's not all, though - the city's bustling with other content to discover and secrets to unearth. The best way to experience it is to get in there and explore every inch. Uncover its riches, seize its rewards, and share your findings with the rest of the community: #Menaphos.

Whatever you're doing, don't forget that there's a 5% XP boost for activities in Menaphos and the Sophanem Slayer Dungeon over the next eight weeks. It's most certainly the definitive place to 'Scape.
