Port Phasmatys (pronounced "Faz-mat-iss"[1]) is a small coastal town located to the far east of the swamp region of Morytania, to the very far north-east of the RuneScape realm of Gielinor, and east of Canifis. The town is especially notable for the Ectofuntus directly north of its gates, its brewery (one of only two in the game), and its furnace, whose distance to a bank is the shortest in all of Gielinor.

There are two main entrances: one from the west, and another from the north. Prior to completion of the Ghosts Ahoy quest, entry to the town requires two ecto-tokens while wearing a ghostspeak amulet. After the quest the player may enter the town at no cost, and a ghostspeak amulet is no longer needed unless you wish to talk with the ghosts. A ghostspeak amulet is recommended to access the bank, but not needed if you use the "quick-bank" option. Alternatively, players can arrive on a charter ship. The town is populated by ghost characters, and an Amulet of Ghostspeak is needed to talk to the majority of the inhabitants. The town features heavily in the Ghosts Ahoy quest. As of 9 November 2009 a remove roof issue with the pirate ship north of Port Phasmatys has been corrected.

Port Phasmatys is the only place in RuneScape where players can wear a bedsheet.

History

The exact date when Port Phasmatys was built is unknown. Phasmatys was a busy market town until Vampyres started to demand Blood tithes on residents. The people in Port Phasmatys turned to Necrovarus, a stranger from the Eastern Lands who somehow knew about the existence of a substance called Ectoplasm below the current temple. With the help of the ectoplasm, the vampyres couldn't enter the town anymore, but it affected nearby areas and kept inhabitants imprisoned in life and in death. The imprisoned citizens slowly became ghosts.

Transportation

The Ectophial

One of the rewards from the Ghosts Ahoy quest is the Ectophial, which is a simple, one-click teleport that teleports players right to the Ectofuntus. This is the quickest and most convenient way to access Port Phasmatys.

A fairy ring (code ALQ) is located to the west of town.

Players can also use the charter ship transport system to travel to or from Port Phasmatys.

Bank

There is a Bank in Port Phasmatys to the south-east, and players may use the "quick-bank" option even without an amulet of ghostspeak. Some players like to train Firemaking in Port Phasmatys because it is reasonably quiet and contains a long east-west stretch of road.

Ectofuntus

After starting the Ghosts Ahoy quest, players can worship the Ectofuntus to receive four times Prayer experience for every bone. It is a bit of effort, walking up and down with buckets and empty pots, but well worth it for this skill as it is very hard to train. This is even more worthwhile when using expensive dragon bones or better.

Completing the quest will help immensely, as players can use the ectophial to teleport back and forth, and bank at the town if needed.

  • Collect slime - take empty buckets and enter the trapdoor near the Ectofuntus, and travel down the stairs. There is an Agility shortcut here that will shorten the journey considerably. At the bottom of the stairs is a pool of slime; players can use empty buckets with them.
  • Crush bones - take bones and empty pots and go up the stairs near the Ectofuntus. Use the bone grinder to grind the bones and collect the contents in the pots.
  • Worship the Ectofuntus - players should now have buckets of slime and pots of bonemeal in their inventory. Just click on the Ectofuntus to worship it, and receive Prayer experience. Players will need to talk to the disciples when the Ectofuntus is full to receive some ecto-tokens. They can then worship again.

There is a small ectofuntus in need of repairs inside one of the boats in Port Phasmatys, which is used as a power source.

Furnace

Phasmatys has one of the closest furnaces to a bank in the game, second only to those in Edgeville and Neitiznot, making it popular for players training Smithing or Crafting.

The Green Ghost inn and brewery

There is one inn in town, The Green Ghost. It is torn apart like the rest of the buildings, and currently houses Robin Hood.

There is also a brewery in the basement, which members can use via the Cooking skill to make their own ales. It is one of only two breweries in the game, the other being in Keldagrim. Players may buy ale yeast from Metarialus there for 5 ecto-tokens, though they must supply their own empty pot.

Farming patch

There is a vegetable and herb patch used in the Farming skill just to the west of the town. Lyra can look after crops for players here. There is also a farming shop where players can buy the usual items for use in farming, as well as undead cows and chickens.

Port Phasmatys general store

Port Phasmatys general store sells basic items in exchange for coins.

There is a general store in Port Phasmatys, located in the south-west part of the town. The pots and buckets in the store can be handy for praying at the Ectofuntus or brewing ales in the brewery.

Some of the ghosts require payment in ecto-token, which is the currency of the town, though the shop still uses coins.
