Various monsters inhabit Varrock Sewers.

The Varrock Sewers are a sewer network composed of a large network of tunnels under the city of Varrock. The Varrock Sewers are a common training area for free-to-play players. They are fully multi-combat, making it ideal for training with friends. The Varrock Sewers are a fairly large dungeon filled with low- to mid-level monsters, and one of the largest dungeons in free-to-play.

Varrock Sewers are filled with corridors and rooms. Members can find some of the monsters here to be useful, because the zombies and the moss giants drop herbs (for Herblore) and seeds (for Farming).



Varrock Sewers began as a small-scale project in the Year 17 of the Fifth Age, only 16 years after the discovery of runes and humanity's rise in power. King Botolph, Varrock's king at the time, ordered that a sewage system be constructed beneath Varrock Palace.

The initial plans for the sewer were revised several times over the course of the project. Eventually, the layout was expanded to include all of Varrock. This required a massive amount of labour. Hundreds of workers, including miners, masons, and architects, were involved in the project.

The sewer's construction was slowed when a Moss Giant-infested area was unearthed. Wally, the miner responsible for the discovery, also found a knight wielding a mysterious sword within the seemingly closed tunnels. The sword was actually Silverlight, which would play a key role in the defeat of the demon Delrith on the same day as its discovery.

The sewers are believed to have been completed in approximately Year 20, and since then continue to serve Varrock's people.


This is a map to the entrance of the Varrock Sewers
The Varrock Sewers can be accessed via a manhole just east of Varrock Palace or via an Agility shortcut in the Edgeville Dungeon.


The dungeon is like a labyrinth with many different ways to go, some ways leading to dead ends and others leading to deadly death traps with multiple aggressive monsters.

There is a ladder in an area containing Level 24 zombies that leads up into a small cage where a level 21 grizzly bear resides. Inside this cage are two coin respawns. Although the cage is located in the Varrock Palace courtyard, it is not possible to enter or exit it except by means of the sewers.

In the Moss Giant section, there is a shortcut pipe that leads to Edgeville Dungeon. This requires level 51 Agility.

There is a river, most probably of waste, that flows throughout much of the sewers where spells can be safely cast at Skeletons. It is a safe way to train magic for new players. Ranged can also be trained, however arrows cannot be retrieved unless you re-obtain them by casting Telekinetic Grab.

Layout of the Varrock Sewers

  • E = Entrance
  • B = Ladder to cage with level 21 grizzly bear
  • W = Spider web. It used to require a slashing weapon to cut, however this has been changed and a weapon is no longer needed to pass through the spider's web. It can be passed through by simply clicking on the web. It may take several attempts before successfully passing through the web.
  • M = Members-only access to Edgeville Dungeon.

Not shown on map:

Notice that the areas in a sickly teal colour are rivers of waste which cannot be crossed, either by players or monsters.

Interestingly enough, the red area that is seen to the southeast of the sewers is the anger room in Tolna's Rift


This is Grimesquit.
This is Phingspet.

Just north of the sewer entrance are two women, Phingspet and Grimesquit. They play a role in the members-only quest Rat Catchers.


The Varrock Sewers has no quest start points, but it is involved in two quests- Demon Slayer and Rat Catchers. In the Demon Slayer quest, the player must retrieve one of the three keys to Silverlight's case after it has been rinsed down a drain.

Item respawns and locations

There are many items that respawn in the Varrock Sewers. Here is a list of them and where they respawn:

  • Coins - Entrance to the Sewers near Level 3 and 6 Giant rats. There is another respawn of coins in the area inhabited by Level 34 deadly red spiders.
  • Mind rune - Respawns in the area inhabited by level 24 zombies.
  • Body rune - Respawns in the area inhabited by Level 24 zombies.
  • Knife - Respawns in a small room guarded by Level 27 giant spiders. This knife is useful for players in slashing the spiderweb apart (which blocks the entry and exit of the zombies' area and the deadly red spiders' area.)
  • Red spiders' eggs - Respawns in the large room where level 34 deadly red spiders reside. Red Spiders' Eggs are used in the Herblore skill and also used as an ingredient for the Stat restore potion.
  • Iron hatchet - Respawns in between the small areas where the level 42 moss giants inhabit. This hatchet is useful for players in slashing the web apart (which blocks the entry and exit of the zombies' area and the deadly red spiders' area)
  • Earth rune - Two exist; one is located near the red spider eggs, the other is located not far from the iron hatchet.
Massive amounts of waste are pumped into Varrock Sewers by means of an extensive subterranean piping system.
