Yanille (pronounced "Yah-neel" or "Yann-eel") is a members-only city that lies to the south of Ardougne. It is the city of the wizards and the Wizards' Guild is based in it. It is beset by Ogres from the south and west, so Yanille is heavily defended by guards. The city is also used for a player made Fletching and Alchemy guild on world 132. As of 9 November 2009 Yanille now has two more points of entry in the form of a new ladder and a new door.
There is a standard bank in eastern Yanille with a bank deposit box and several bankers. On world 132, many players gather there, in an unofficial guild, where common activities include: Fletching, Alchemy, and Firemaking . After the recent updates, a large number of Fletchers and Alchers has now left the Guild. It is now only to be considered that 1 to 10 people still Alch and Fletch there at the moment. Although not a large number of people there as it use to be in World 132, most fletchers and alchers has now spread across most of the worlds.It is not uncommon to see well over a hundred players in Yanille at any given moment.
There are also four portals to other magical places in Gielinor located in the guild.
The Wizards' Guild also has the closest rune essence mine to a bank in the game.
Yanille has a Pet shop near the Hunter shop. It is a shop selling summoning pets. For details, see Yanille Petshop.
You can buy three types of beer in the Dragon Inn.
Bert is the starting point for the Hand in the Sand quest, once this is completed, you can ask Bert for 84 sand to be delivered to your bank every day. You can also use the Lunar Magicks spell NPC Contact to ask Bert for your sand without visiting Yanille.
He also has a range and a sink in his hut.
Players often move their house here because of the proximity to the bank.
While technically not part of Yanille, the Khazard Mine is located northeast of the city, it is one of the closest mines to a bank in the game, and provides excellent experience for miners wishing to get levels quickly. You can find the following ores at the mine:
Yanille Dungeon can be very useful to high level players training herblore, but high levels of agility are required to penetrate deep into the dungeon. There are two ways of entering the dungeon, either just north of the city by slashing a spider web with an edged weapon or knife, or by having 82 thieving and entering the dungeon just south of the bank.
The watchtower is located just outside the north-west wall of Yanille. It is the start of the Watchtower quest, and the place you teleport into when you use the watchtower teleport spell, unless the player changes it to the center of Yanille after completing the Argougne Achievement Diary. There are watchmen on the second floor who require 65 Thieving to steal from. They yield 60 coins, bread, and 137.5 experience per successful pickpocket. There is also a fountain just outside the watchtower.
Players needing faster access to either the dungeon, or the bank, or the watchtower (travelling between two of the three) will find the agility shortcut under the wall, which requires just 16 agility to use, quite useful.
The anvils in Yanille are probably the second closest to the bank in the game, the closest being Varrock west bank. Many high level smiths choose to forge here because it's quieter, and they can also occasionally go into the Wizards' Guild to buy runes that they can sell at a profit later.
The Cooking shop in Yanille sells several items, namely:
Between the wheat field patch and Bert's house there's a mysterious hole in the ground, which is a one way exit from the Skavid caves. It can be examined, which gives the undescriptive text "A hole", and should not to be confused with the agility shortcut just north of the hops patch.
The archipelago to the east of Yanille are home to many Jungle Spiders which are sometimes hunted for their carcasses which are used in Spirit spider pouches. Players have to visit the archipelago in The Grand Tree quest. Hazelmere, the gnome mage, may be found up a ladder here. Players may have to go to the archipelago to bring him food as he is a regular customer of the Gnome Restaurant.
