Draynor Manor is a large haunted mansion north of Draynor Village. It consists of four levels and is central to three quests. It also holds the portal that grants access to the dimension where killerwatts exist. The manor is home to several different types of monsters and various oddities.

A committee called the Draynor Manor Restoration Fund is soon going to restore it into a community museum, according to Miss Schism.

According to the map of DeviousMUD (the forerunner to RuneScape), Draynor Manor was originally labelled "Haunted House". The new name may be based on Drayton Manor, a stately home in England, on which a theme park has since been built. As of 15 December 2009, Draynor Manor has undergone a Graphic update which has reorganized the floorplan.

The property

The property surrounding the manor itself is completely fenced in, except for the gate at the south. Veronica is hanging around here and will ask players to look for her fiancé. It is full of fungus and dead trees, and a few of these trees are undead trees (with yellow label instead of blue) which will actually take a swipe at players and hit them for minor damage (maximum 3) if they pass too closely. These can be identified by their examine message, which reads as "Its bark is worse than its swipe". They are also identifiable by having character shadows on High detail, as opposed to scenery shadows for regular trees. The Protect from Melee prayer can completely negate any damage the trees inflict. However, players cannot attack the trees themselves. The option for chopping down these specific trees also does not appear unless the player has started the Animal Magnetism quest.

Additionally, there are invisible vines which will attack the player from the ground, and always hit for 1 or 2 Hitpoints of damage.

A candle glitch

In the south-west corner of the property is a fountain, which is a plot device in the Ernest the Chicken quest. Directly to the west of the manor is a special Farming patch for growing belladonna, and a compost heap (also a plot device involved in Ernest the Chicken), and a patch of special cabbages. These cabbages are unique in that they boost defence 1 to 2 levels temporarily. During the course of the Black Knights' Fortress quest, these cabbages are referenced by the witch brewing the "doomsday potion" (incidentally, one cannot use a cabbage from here during the quest - the game will not let players actually ruin the quest). Right next to the cabbages is an evil turnip patch, where members can grow an evil turnip for Summoning.

North of the manor amid dead trees is a single gravestone, which if examined, reads "here lies Guy, he told a lie, so we swung him from the gallows high!", also from which a Draynor skull (Used in A Fairy Tale Part 1) can be obtained if a player digs there with a spade. Bob the Jagex Cat and penguins get stuck here rather frequently. Guy's grave has the sign of Zaros on it for an unknown reason. To the north-east is a single gallows. If the player looks at the Gallows long enough, they may see a dead body hanging from the hangrope for a split second before disappearing. This is apparently "Guy". It is very hard to get a screenshot of him, as the body only appears for roughly half a second.

Draynor Manor got a recent update which changed some of the doors and furniture, a sign on the gate has been added to stop new players getting stuck inside.

The building

Ground floor

The entrance to Draynor manor.

The front door slams shut behind players when they walk in and cannot be opened from the inside. There is a staircase leading up immediately beyond the antechamber. Behind the staircase is a closet containing a level 22 skeleton and a rubber tube, which is an item required to complete the Ernest the Chicken quest. The door to the closet requires a key, which is buried in the compost heap outside.

As players wander around the manor, they may find themselves being followed by animated chairs, a la Fantasia. These chairs are harmless and the player can walk through them. There are also portraits that has eyes that move as you turn the screen. They cannot be examined.

Exploring the hallway through the door to the north takes players to the east and west areas of the manor's main floor. Opposite the door is a grandfather clock. The hallway is lined with spooky pictures, candelabras, suits of armour and candles sconced in the wall, as well as a grand piano in one corner to the east. At the east end of the hallway is a staircase leading down, and a storage area containing a spade, shears, bucket, and a Bronze medium helm. The door to the north leads into the yard, allowing players to escape the manor.

The west half of the manor contains a kitchen with a Witch, complete with a range, wardrobe, magical symbols, and a table & chair set. A room to the south of the kitchen contains poison. Further to the south is a study. Searching the Candle Sconce in the west wall of the study reveals a "secret door" which takes the player into the bedroom and a ladder leading downwards. A switch on the wall opens the "secret door" allowing the player to exit the bedroom. Ava is found in the bedroom and is the start point for the Animal Magnetism quest.

Dungeon

The ladder in the bedroom leading down takes players into the manor's main dungeon. The dungeon is littered with barrels, crates, and small spiders. There are candles sconced in the walls. There is a small maze of rooms here which have locked doors. These doors are operated by six levers on the walls - the correct sequence must be found in order to open the westernmost door to get the oil can in order to complete the Ernest the Chicken quest.

First floor

The staircase in front of the front doors leads up to the first floor. Another hallway runs east and west, with the stairs to the second floor beside the stairs leading back down to the main floor. This hallway is also littered with statues, candelabras, etc. The west area of this floor has a destroyed-looking room literally haunted by three level 19 ghosts.

The east area has two rooms; one contains fish food and the other is a bathroom, which is also haunted by a ghost. The chairs in the room may begin to follow the player around unless he or she turns around and looks at it, in which case it stops moving until the player turns back around.

In issue 30 of Postbag from the Hedge, Postie Pete revealed how the ghosts came to haunt the Manor.

The ghosts of Draynor Manor used to be fun-loving socialites who threw massive parties. ... Just after all of their guests had left a particularly high-spirited party, the Draynor ladies decided to have a little snack before bedtime: a giant trifle made up of all of the feast’s leftovers. If they could combine all of the remaining desserts into one super-trifle, there would be less tidying to do the next morning. They could not have been more wrong. The resulting combination of dozens of different types of cream resulted in a massive explosion that destroyed the surrounding rooms and transformed the ladies into their current form.

Second floor

Professor Oddenstein, I presume?

The top floor of Draynor manor is home to Professor Oddenstein and his "strange machine". Also here is the Interdimensional rift that takes players to the plane where Killerwatts exist. Also any player doing the Holy Grail quest will discover the Magic Whistle in the most southerly room but only if they have the Holy Table Napkin.

Members can also use the Portal in the same room as Professor Oddenstein to gain access to the Killerwatts, a level 55 monster which requires 37 Slayer to kill[2]. Players must wear insulated boots for protection.

Count Draynor's basement

Count Draynor's tomb

The staircase in the eastern section of the main floor leads to a small basement containing a coffin. There are tapestries adorning the walls and small candles on the floor. A bronze medium helmet used to respawn in this room.

It used to be possible to step on the candles on the floor here. Upon standing on them, characters would say things like "Gah!" and "Argh!", as the candles will burn their feet. This did not deal no damage. Even earlier the candles did deal damage, no more than 2 per hit. This was removed.

The coffin contains the undead remains of Count Draynor. However, once the Count has been defeated, players may "search" the coffin to discover that it only contains a pillow; Examining the coffin will yield "looks comfortable."

Also, if you look really closely and get your character enough to the west, you can see part of the dwarven mine in Falador.

During the 2009 Easter event, there was a glitch whereby players could "leave their heart behind" in Draynor Manor. This was accomplished by triggering the Redemption prayer and then activating the Around the World in Eggty Days emote (which was a reward from the event).

The Crack in the wall shown behind the updated jail cell. 15 December, 2009

After the update on 15 December, 2009, a jail cell was added in the southeastern corner of the basement in which a inaccessible wall crack is located with the option to crawl through. Trying to open the cell door will yield the message: "Why would I want to lock myself in a cage?". It has been discovered that this jail cell is where Count Draynor places his victims in if they have not started the quest yet to "save for later." However, players can crawl out the crack to escape and appear outside the manor.
