Bandos's throne room is the throne room of the banished god Bandos. Zanik was taken there by the strange box in Yu'biusk at the end of the Land of the Goblins quest, and she managed to escape during The Chosen Commander with the help of a pendant she found on Bandos' throne. During the quest, this location is host to a flashback-like sequence where the player plays as Zanik. While playing as Zanik, the player must complete the Agility Course. This location is also where the player fights the Bandos avatar.

Players can return to the throne room after the Chosen Commander by one of two ways:

The throne room is a large room with Bandos's throne on the east wall and a portal to Dorgesh-Kaan on the west wall. The room is filled with Goblin statues, Ork statues, Ogre statues, and Ourg statues. Some of these can be climbed on, some are only decorative, and some of them come to life and attack any player who attempts to climb them.

Players can leave the throne room by exiting through the portal at the west wall, just as in The Chosen Commander quest. Players return to Dorgesh-Kaan where the portal was during the quest, but the portal closes behind them so they cannot use it to return to the throne room.

The Bandos Throne Room is a good place to earn money as well as combat xp. The statues respawn fast, and (apart from the Ourg statue) don't hit particularly high (max hit 8 from the Ogre Statue) making Guthan's a good option for a food-less trip. They have several relatively worthwhile drops: gems from sapphire to diamond are all common drops, mystic earth staves are sometimes dropped, and the granite mace is only an "uncommon" drop - expect to see about 2-4 in a full inventory after a trip. A full inventory from a trip here will usually sell for 150-200k (16 January 2010). Even if you keep a few gems for yourself (e.g. for some Crafting) the Bandos Throne Room is still an excellent source of money for how safe it is.

Agility course

Main article: Bandos agility course
Map and diagram of Bandos's throne room

A set of statues, a ledge, and the throne itself make up the agility course in the room, as shown on the diagram. Level 60 Agility, Ranged and Strength along with a mithril grapple and a crossbow are required for the course. The route is the same that you, as Zanik, took in the quest.

To run the course, the player first climbs onto the goblin statue (1 on the diagram) in the middle of the room, then jump across orc and ogre statues and onto the big ourg statue (6) that is holding the bowl in front of the throne. From there, the player jumps west across some more statues and onto the west ledge (10). From there, a mithril grapple and a crossbow are used to grapple an Ourg statue's spear (11) so that the player can swing onto Bandos' throne (12). Players can jump down from the throne and repeat the course.

Failure of obstacles can occur at all Agility levels. A high level does not reduce the failure rate, judging by reports on the official forums. High-levelled players report they can fail all statues but the Ourg carrying the water bowl seems to be the obstacle failed most often.

A lap around this course takes around 30 seconds if no failures occur, making it quick to get several laps in per hour. One could see around 40-45k experience per hour if working at a good pace.

Trivia

  • The examining message of the Bandos throne is the same as the statues.
  • Players commonly found that simultaneously attacking a statue would result in a double, in some cases triple spawn. Also, when a player kills a doubled spawned statue must faster than the other person, it will re-spawn quicker, and climbing it with the right timing will cause the other statue to re-spawn, making it seem like the re-spawn rate is much faster than it actually is. (This is yet to be fixed by Jagex.)
  • Climbing through the agility course would result in your familiar dying. (Unknown whether or not this was later fixed by Jagex)
  • If you kill a statue and then stand on it, it will respawn and push you off of the spot.
  • If a statue respawns on a drop from another statue, you will still be able to pick up the drop.
  • If you bring one of those statues to life, then start the agility course, the space where the statue stood will appear empty from the agility course.
  • The Ourg statue holding a bowl has an examine of "forever holding up a bowl.", v.s. the examine of the other statues in the agility course, which is "forever standing guard."
  • When standing in most northern part of the room (on the ledge). It is possible to see another room far north very similar to the throne room. Some statues in the room can also be examined and give the examine text: "Forever standing guard."
  • Using the Orb of Oculus, it is possible to see into this other room. It is an exact copy of the Bandos Throne Room, except that the Bandos Guards block the path to the portal out. It is probably used in The Chosen Commander quest during the portion where you play as Zanik.
  • This room could be a historical reference to the Terracotta Army
