The Lumbridge swamp.

The Lumbridge Swamp is located south of Lumbridge and is east of Draynor Village. It can be accessed via a small gateway at the back of the graveyard behind Lumbridge Church. You can also access it via an entry south-east of Draynor Village or you can swing across an agility shortcut from Al-Kharid. There are several fishing spots on the east end of the swamps that are ideal for novice anglers. There are two mining sites in the swamps. Hermit Father Urhney (from The Restless Ghost quest) can be found in the swamps as well as the entrance to the Lumbridge Swamp Caves. The starting point to the Lost City quest is in the swamp as well as the entrance to the lost city itself, Zanaris. You can also craft water runes at the Water Runecrafting Altar which is in the swamp. Finally, there are about a dozen Swamp tar spawns around and to the north and west the Water Altar.


Places of Interest

Fishing Spots & Fishing Tutor

There are several fishing spots on the eastern shores of the swamp where you can net and bait fish. The Fishing Tutor can also be found here. He will give players information on the basics of fishing and information on all of the different ways you can fish. There are 2 Small fishing net respawns located near the Fishing Tutor too.

Lumbridge swamp tutor mine/Copper & Tin Mine

A mine can be found south of the Fishing Tutor along the south-eastern shores of the swamp. This mine is ideal for new players as it contains 5 copper rocks and 5 tin rocks. The Mining Tutor can also be found here. He will give players information on the basics of mining and he will also give players a Bronze pickaxe if players so happen to require one.

Water Runecrafting Altar

The Water Runecrafting Altar can be found in the centre of the swamps. Players need to be level 5 Runecrafting and have a Water Talisman or Water Tiara to enter.

Entrance To Zanaris Shed
The shed that takes you to Zanaris

A small shed can be found in the centre of the swamps. Inside, players will find several crates and some farming tools. If players have completed the Lost City Quest and are wielding a Dramen or Lunar staff then they will be teleported to the city of Zanaris upon entering this shed.

Lumbridge Swamp Caves

A little north-west of the Water Runecrafting Altar is the entrance to the Lumbridge Swamp Caves. There is a Candle Seller near the entrance who will sell players candles for 1000 coins each. Players will need a light source, a rope and a tinderbox to enter the caves safely. Taking a lit candle into the caves is dangerous as there are gas fumes in some areas.

Father Urhney's House

West of the Lumbridge Swamp Caves is Father Urhney's house. He plays a key role in The Restless Ghost quest as he gives players an Amulet of Ghostspeak. There is a Leather Gloves respawn in his house too.

Adventurer's Camp/Lost City Start Point

North of Father Urhney's house is a small camp. There is a monk, mage, ranger and warrior. The monk, mage and ranger will not talk to you much but talking to the warrior will start the Lost City Quest. There is a Pot respawn north-east of their camp.

Advanced Swamp Mine

There is another mine in the south-west portion of the swamp, where players can mine adamantite, mithril and coal. As part of the medium tasks for the Lumbridge and Draynor Achievement Diary, players are required to mine some coal ore here.

Swamp Tar

Lumbridge Swamp is a popular place to gather swamp tar. Swamp tar is often gathered to make swamp paste to use in Fishing Trawler, or for making herb tars such as harralander. Because swamp tar is stackable, a player who goes here to obtain it will normally take a long time to leave.

Holiday Item Recovery

If you lost your Zombie head, obtained on October 2005, you can get it back by digging in any part of the swamp.

Monsters in the Swamp
