After completing Desert Treasure II - The Fallen Empire in OSRS, players will have the opportunity to confront a more potent variant of the Whisperer. To challenge an even stronger awakened variant, one must disturb the Odd Figure using an awakener's orb from the player's inventory and then select "Yes" when prompted.
Should the player meet their demise while battling the Whisperer, their gravestone will appear in the Ruins of Camdozaal, close to the rope that leads to the Lassar Undercity. Players will enjoy a reduced reclaim fee until they achieve five victories, after which the standard death cost will be applicable.

To swiftly reach the Lassar Undercity, the abode of the Whisperer, consider the following expedient approaches:
1. Utilizing the ring of shadows for instantaneous teleportation to the exit of the Lassar Undercity. This demands the prior use of the sirenic tablet on the ring, an item with a 1/25 drop rate from the Whisperer.
2. Employing the Mind Altar Teleport spell (or its corresponding tablet/portal) and subsequently traversing southeastward to reach Camdozaal.
3. Engaging the Lassar Teleport spell or tablet, followed by employing the shortcut to the northwest (an endeavor that necessitates an Agility level of 68), or alternatively, circumventing the mountain by running around it.
Once situated within the Ruins of Camdozaal, ascend down the rope located at the northwest terminus to gain entry into the Lassar Undercity. From there, avail yourself of the teleporter to access the cathedral.
Ensure your inventory is well-stocked for the upcoming challenge:
1. Blackstone Fragment: This is a crucial item.
2. Special Attack Weapon: Keep a potent weapon ready for special attacks.
3. Venator Bow/Toxic Blowpipe: These are ideal for dealing with Lost Souls.
4. (Divine) Rune Pouch: Carry this to cast spells like Fire Surge (Nightmare Staff) or Ice Barrage & Blood Barrage (Shadow, Sanguinesti Staff, Toxic Trident).
5. Ample Prayer Potions/Super Restores: Maintain a full supply to sustain your prayers. Consider bringing more food if you're still learning the boss mechanics.
6. Emergency Food: Keep some nourishment in reserve for unexpected situations.
7. Forgotten Brew/Imbued Heart/Saturated Heart: These can provide significant boosts when needed.
8. Stamina Potion: Enhance your endurance with a stamina potion.
9. House Teleport Tablet: Have a quick escape route with a teleport to your house.
With this well-prepared inventory, you'll be better equipped to face the challenges ahead.
Before engaging in the battle, be well-prepared and attentive to the following mechanics:
1. Initiating the Fight: To start the encounter, bring the Blackstone Fragment. This is vital as some phases require you to enter the Shadow Realm. Be mindful that the battle's progression depends on maintaining your sanity.
2. Sanity Management: Your sanity is paramount. It gradually depletes if struck by a tentacle or if you fail to evade/block special attacks. Inside the Shadow Realm, your sanity drops by 3% every few ticks, while outside, you regain 1% every few ticks. If your sanity fully diminishes, you'll succumb to insanity, suffering escalating damage over time. Swiftly teleport out if this transpires.
3. Fight Initiation: The Odd Figure triggers the fight by knocking you back and transforming into the Whisperer. Stay out of melee range, as her melee attack is formidable and can't be fully blocked by prayer.
4. Projectile Attacks: The Whisperer's primary attack unleashes three projectiles, alternating between Ranged and Magic. Purple barbs represent ranged shots, while blue orbs denote magic shots. Protection prayers offer complete damage reduction. Projectile patterns evolve as the fight progresses:
5. Tentacle Strikes: Following each standard attack, four tentacles emerge four tiles away from you, converging on their starting tile. Getting hit incurs 20 damage and depletes 20% of your sanity, regardless of the number of tentacles hitting. Initially, an "X" formation is used, which evolves into a "+" formation after two special attacks. Dodge both formations consistently by employing an L-shaped movement (two tiles forward/backward, then one tile left/right).
Prepare to face the Whisperer's formidable special attacks at specific hitpoint thresholds. Familiarize yourself with the tactics needed to counter each attack:
1. Shadow Leeches:
2. Soul Siphon:
Following each special attack, the Whisperer typically launches a binding projectile and attempts to move close to the player. Beware, as she becomes vulnerable to binding spells during this phase. Two special attack rotations alternate:
1. Shadow Leeches -> Screech -> Soul Siphon
2. Screech -> Soul Siphon -> Shadow Leeches
Upon dwindling to 0 health, the Whisperer undergoes a transformation. She regenerates for 140 hitpoints, restores previously drained stats, and transports the player into the Shadow Realm. During this phase, her tactics evolve, and your strategy must adapt accordingly:
1. Alternate Ranged and Magic Attacks: The Whisperer shifts her approach, alternating between ranged and magic attacks every two strikes. This phase commences with a ranged attack. Beware, as her attack speed escalates, and only a single tentacle surfaces after each assault. Employ the L-shaped movement technique to dodge these tentacles as before.
2. Sanity Drain and Movement: Even in the enrage phase, tentacles retain their sanity-draining capacity upon impact. Due to this, prioritize fluid movement to maintain your sanity. Keeping your sanity intact is crucial during this phase, so ensure you remain as mentally stable as possible. Entering the enrage phase with high health and prayer levels greatly bolsters your chances of success.
3. Managing Prayer Points: In this phase, vigilantly monitor your prayer points. Continuous movement and timely prayer flicking are essential to avoid succumbing to her attacks and tentacles. Maintaining high prayer points becomes paramount due to the consistent drain. Adequate prayer preservation is pivotal for survival.
4. Transition and Victory: As you conquer the Whisperer, her demise reinstates your sanity to full (100%). Attacks launched during this transitional phase do not harm you, but your prayer points will still deplete until your return to the real realm.
5. Respawn: After prevailing against her, the Whisperer will resurrect in 18 seconds, necessitating your readiness for the next encounter.
In Awakened mode, the Whisperer undergoes significant transformations, making the battle even more demanding. Prepare yourself for these elevated challenges:
1. Altered Tentacle Formations:
2. Enhanced Regular Attack:
3. Evolved Attack Patterns:
4. Increased Sanity and Prayer Drain in the Shadow Realm:
5. Amplified Screech Attack:
1. Altered Shadow Leeches Mechanic:
2. Substantial Health Increase:
3. Modified Special Attack Thresholds:
4. Enrage Phase Adjustments:
5. Binding Attack Movement:
6. Persistent Sanity Challenge:
Mastering each mechanic is essential, as any oversight may lead to insanity during the battle. Employ the "L" movement technique to avoid tentacle attacks successfully.
For the souls mechanic, carry a toxic blowpipe and a venator bow. Eliminate clustered souls with the bow, switch to the blowpipe for the lone soul, and promptly exit the realm.
During the pillars mechanic, rapidly gauge pillar health to minimize Shadow Realm time, as lingering drains 40% sanity. Dodging a screech is vital due to the hefty 70% sanity drain.
During the leeches mechanic, swiftly enter and exit the Shadow Realm once the pattern is identified.
Commencing the enrage phase demands maximum health and prayer, focusing on attacks over restoration. Enter with 60% or more sanity, prioritize evading tentacles, and allocate more concentration to prayer switches.
