The High Priest's Request is a Side Quest in Egypt (Act II). It is given by Zazamankh, the high priest of Memphis, who is standing next to the Gate to Thebes at the western end of the Memphis Plaza. He tells you some citizens are beginning to doubt the power of the priests, which may ultimately lead to chaos in the city. He asks you to obtain the Staff of Khufu from Giza, allowing him to demonstrate authority and restore the order.
The Staff of Khufu is found in a burial chamber within the Tomb of Khufu, which is located on the Giza Plateau. There are two sarcophagi in the tomb, the correct one is Khufu's Sarcophagus at the end of the southern corridor. Opening it will drop the staff, picking it up creates four large skeleton mages: Two stronger versions of Desecrated Dead - Flame Liches and two stronger versions of Gilded Dead - Spirit Liches. They do not have to be defeated to complete the quest, but, being quest monsters, they have a higher than usual chance to drop better items.
Return the staff to Zazamankh to complete the quest.
Note: You can also complete the side quest Khufu's Curse while you're in his tomb: Talk to the guy outside the entrance, then kill the marked Jackalman in the central corridor.
