From Me:

I created this walk through to show everyone how to get through the missions with tombs. I didn't make this for people to ask me how to fix their technical difficulties. My game has NO glitches which means all the missions have worked fine for me, and everything was where and how it was supposed to be. PLEASE stop asking me how to fix these issues with your game.

Shawarma for the Relic Merchant

So the relic merchant has been rather helpful in helping me find one of these sacred relics already. Makes sense he would know where the last one is too.

You will need to get friendly with the merchant before he will tell you the information.

Ha! A food bribe? No problem!
[Apparently I made this way more complicated than it needed to be. Thanks to Fleeting who pointed out you can buy prepared meals from the food merchant during lunch and dinner]
Click and drag the meal into your inventory. Then go speak with the merchant.


  1. To complete this, all you have to do is go buy it as a meal from the food merchant. Just make sure you are buying it between lunch and supper time. During breakfast, you can't buy it.

  2. I can'y get it at all for some reason, no matter when i go :(

  3. Arrgghhhh Don't send a veggie on this one, thats why i couldn't complete it, had to change her trait.

  4. Make sure you buy not buy food. It will then go directly into the Sim's inventory.

  5. Helmi hates me no matter what i do, any tips?

  6. He hates everyone, he's hot headed, no sense of humor, and mean spirited. Buy the food from Samir after around 3pm. If you buy it for consumption just cancel action before you start eating and once you set it down drag it to your own inventory. You don't have to be friends with Helmi at any point in this, so don't bother. I tried and took so long I accidentally peed my pants and he made fun of me. He ate his food, insulted me again, and sent me to the Pyramid of the Wind for the Relic of Eternity. I opted not to crack him in the nose because I might need info from him again later... ?

  7. Lol was trying to figure this out for ages! my sim is a veggie :-P thanks guys

  8. the Shwarma was not coming up in the menu for buying at the food market, so I bought the cook book and had my sim read it. he has the "inappropriate in a good way" reward, so I sent him to one of the houses and he used their kitchen to cook it. To get it into my sim's inventory (i I couldn't drag it) I put it away as leftovers, then did "open fridge" and moved it to my sim's inventory.
    It's time consuming, but works if no other options are working.
