Soulobby
is a friends chat set in Menaphos dedicated to calling soul obelisks.
Since soul obelisks offer great reputation, it is sought out by many people in order to discover more of Menaphos at a quicker and relaxed pace.

Some of Menaphos' content are locked behind reputation. Soulobby hunts for
soul obelisks
, but also
corrupted scarabs
. Experienced scouters also hunt for
corrupted eggs
. This is the friends chat you'll want to be in during your visit at Menaphos!

If you wish to know more about Menaphos in detail, a really helpful thread can be found here.

Reputation Explanation


Soul obelisks
and
corrupted scarabs
have their own respective cap. They are independent of each other.


Soul Obelisks

If you didn't know already, you only need partial completion of the Jack of Spades quest to access Menaphos. You do not need to complete it. At this point, the base reputation you can gain from
soul obelisks
is 20,060.

Every Menaphos quest you complete, the maximum reputation cap will increase by 5015. There are four Menaphos quests, so after completing all of them, you can gain up to 40,120 reputation per day (double the base reputation). The quests are listed below:

• The Jack of Spades (25,075)
• Crocodile Tears (30,090)
• Our Man in the North (35,105)
• 'Phite Club (40,120)

Note that the right click check progress option on the
soul obelisks
does not state how long it has before it despawns. This is your personal cap progress.


Corrupted Scarabs

Corrupted scarabs
have a diminishing cap. The amount of reputation (and experience) you receive will be lowered every specific number you burst. However, unlike
soul obelisks
, you can forever burst
corrupted scarabs
at the lowest threshold possible.

1 - 23
corrupted scarabs
slain would give you 50 reputation.
24 - 35
corrupted scarabs
slain would give you 25 reputation.
36 - 47
corrupted scarabs
slain would give you 16.5 reputation.
48 - 59
corrupted scarabs
slain would give you 12.5 reputation.
Over 59
corrupted scarabs
slain would give you 10 reputation.

Soul Obelisks


Periodically in Menaphos, a
soul obelisk
may spawn. When interacted with, you will gain reputation, but you will also be damaged.
Please note that you may die if you do not pay attention!


Only one
soul obelisk
may spawn per world. In addition to this, it will only appear in one of four locations, which are sorted by the four districts: Merchant, Imperial, Worker & Port.

The Merchant
soul obelisk
location:


The Imperial
soul obelisk
location:


The Worker
soul obelisk
location:


The Port
soul obelisk
location:


You can no longer gain anymore experience or reputation after you have capped.
Soul obelisks
have their own independent cap
. They do not share their cap with
corrupted scarabs
. The cap is reset daily without needing for you to lobby.

A
soul obelisk
lasts for 7 minutes and 30 seconds.
If a
soul obelisk
spawns on your world and you are nearby, you will receive a game message saying so. This is often referred to as a 'fresh' callout as you know the
soul obelisk
will last for more than 7 minutes.

Note that when a game update occurs,
soul obelisks
won't spawn for about 40 minutes.

Corrupted Scarabs


Although we hunt for
soul obelisk
, we also encounter
corrupted scarabs
.
There are those who wish to use this friends chat solely for this purpose which is absolutely fine! Scouting for one or the other usually yields in people calling out both anyway which makes everyone happy!

Corrupted scarabs
occur similarly to
soul obelisks
. While they are spawned on a world, you will be able to find them around each shifting tomb entrance in Menaphos, the quarry in the Worker district and outside the Sophanem Slayer Dungeon.

Corrupted scarabs
offer a generous amount of slayer experience per burst as well as some reputation, but you will also be damaged.
Please note that you may die if you do not pay attention!


The more
corrupted scarabs
you burst, the less experience and reputation you will obtain. This decreases in certain thresholds and has its own independent cap. They do not share their daily cap with
soul obelisks
.

Should there be little or no
corrupted scarabs
near you, simply enter the nearby shifting tomb and exit it (or enter the Sophanem Slayer Dungeon if you are there and exit it). They will respawn.

Corrupted scarabs
last for 5 minutes before despawning on a world.
If
corrupted scarabs
burrow up on your world and you are nearby, you will receive a game message saying so. This is often referred to as a 'fresh' callout as you know the corrupted scarabs will last for close to 5 minutes.

Daily Cats


In Menaphos, there are what we call
daily cats
. As the name suggests, there are
cats
that only appear in Menaphos on a particular day. They roam throughout Menaphos and can be quite difficult to find. If you are looking for one,
Soulobby
would be a great place to see if there are any recent
cat
sightings!

Findng these
cats
does not yield any reputation.

Monday ->
No cat

Tuesday ->
Lucifurr

Wednesday ->
Takhuit

Thursday ->
Fenekh

Friday ->
Nodjmet

Saturday ->
Blanchy

Sunday ->
Hetepheres

Corrupted Eggs


This does not help you with your reputation, but obtaining a
corrupted egg
is a requirement for the '
S
and
y
' title.

Experienced scouters in our friends chat will scout for
corrupted eggs
and call them out in the friends chat. When you get one, please be sure to thank the caller! They are a very rare spawn in Menaphos and Sophanem.

If you wish to help the community in scouting
corrupted eggs
, reading the
corrupted egg
page on the RuneScape Wiki for more information is a good start.

Please do not sell
corrupted egg
locations in Soulobby.

Calling - Overview


When you join the friends chat, you may notice some calls going on immediately. That's because this friends chat is 24/7!

Generally, the syntax of calling is: <world> <call> (optional information).

The world is the world that the call is on.

The call can either be a
soul obelisk
or
corrupted scarabs
. If they are not called as
corrupted scarabs
, then, by default, it is a
soul obelisk
.

The optional information is usually specifying its age or narrowing down its location.

Abbreviations
M = Merchant
I = Imperial
W = Worker
P = Port
S = Scarabs
Ua = Unknown age
D = Despawned/Dead
Sd = Scarabs despawned/Scarabs dead
F = Fresh

Be careful when reading the calls - they may be
cat
calls and not actually a
soul obelisk
.

Calling - Examples


Here are some examples:

1. 36M
2. 139 scarabs fresh
3. 42 s f
4. 140 p ua
5. 9 worker
6. 5 d
7. 14 s d

Now, to explain them:

1. In world 36, there is a
soul obelisk
in the Merchant district. Its age is unknown.
2. In world 139, there are
corrupted scarabs
. They are fresh (just spawned).
3. In world 42, there are
corrupted scarabs
. They are fresh ('fresh' has been shortened down to just the letter 'f').
4. In world 140, there is a
soul obelisk
in the Port district. Its age is unknown.
5. In world 9, there is a
soul obelisk
in the Worker district. Its age is unknown.

Notice that all calls by default are assumed to have an unknown age unless otherwise told.

6. In world 5, the
soul obelisk
has despawned. It is no longer there.
7. In world 14, the
corrupted scarabs
have despawned. They are no longer there.

Also, please only use "w" for the Worker district. We know you're calling a world if we see a number next to it so there actually no need for the extra effort.

If you still have any queries about calling, please do ask in the friends chat. There might be some helpful people around!
