New Kid in Town Side Quest
Recommended Level: 18
Region: Sapi-Res Nome (Letopolis)
- Talk to Nehi
- Bring Nehi’s Cart back to him
- Find and speak to the town people about the hieroglyphs
- (Read the Hieroglyph Papyrus for a tip)
- Investigate the buried Temple
- Speak to Nehi
The quest starts at the market square in Letopolis. It’s actually one of the longer quest lines in the game. Talk to Tahar, the guy in white robes at the market square. He will tell you to talk to a villager named Nehi.
Objective: Talk to Nehi
Nehi will be marked for you. He’s close by in Letopolis.
Objective: Bring Nehi’s Cart back to him
The cart is found outside Letopolis by some ruins. The easiest strategy is to scout the area using your eagle to find the cart. Then rush through it as quickly as you can, jump in and drive off. There are many high-level enemies here that you can skip. Especially the feline predators are tough to kill, ignore them and drive the cart back to Nehi as quickly as you can.
Objective: Find and speak to the town people about the hieroglyphs
Use Senu (your eagle) to scout Letopolis. Watch for Senu’s circle filling up yellow, this indicates a main objective is in sight. The tighter the yellow circle gets the closer you are. Find 3 villagers using Senu. Once they are all marked, talk to them about the strange hieroglyphs in their houses.
Objective: Investigate the buried Temple
After speaking with the villagers you will notice that there are no more waypoints on the map. You actually receive a Hieroglyph Papyrus after the last objective. It contains a puzzle “If your feet are firm in Letopolis, look west to the Pyramids. Within the golden dunes lies the Temple of a Million Years, guarded by stone lionesses”. I went to the highest viewpoint in the town of Letopolis and looked for Pyramids in the distance (in the west). There was a stone structure near the town and as I approached, saw the two lioness statues. Below is a screenshot of where you need to go to, the marker will show once you get close enough.
Be aware there are a bunch of enemies here. Luckily, you can rush past them and enter the ruins. Now scan the ruins (hold ) and it will mark a few things will yellow markers inside the ruins. Investigate everything and you’ll get a cutscene.
Objective: Speak to Nehi
Return to Nehi to complete the quest line.
This concludes the “New Kid in Town” Side Quest.
