Introduction

The Tree Gnome Stronghold is one of the largest cities in RuneScape. It has many different training spots; from agility, to woodcutting, to fletching, you can find it all here. To gain access, you have to help Femi load a cart, and then the guards will let you in. This stronghold is also home to one of the four fruit tree patches in RuneScape.

Special Attractions
Agility Training Area

This stronghold is home to a beginners' agility training area. Up to level 32 there aren't any other courses to train at, so you're stuck here. (With the exception of the Brimhaven agility dungeon) For more detailed information, see the Agility Skill guide.

Gnome Restaurant Mini game

Speak to Gianne jnr. and you can begin this time based mini game with rewards such as teleports to the gnomes and special clothing, for more information read our, Gnome Restaurant guide.

Fletching/Crafting

With the flax to pick, and the spinning wheels, this is one of the scarce few locations to make bowstring. It is fairly simple to pick the flax, spin it, and bank it quickly. With the yew trees here, you can string, and cut your yew longs in the same place.

Woodcutting

With the abundance of yew trees, and a rare magic tree, the Stronghold is a woodcutter's haven. The magic tree's proximity to a bank makes it easy to cut your logs, then bank them fast. You will find many players cutting logs around the stronghold.

Mining

After you complete The Grand Tree quest, you can go under the Grand Tree, go north, push a branch aside, and find an underground mining site. It contains the basic ores, tin, copper, coal, a bit of mithril, and couple adamant.

Farming

There are 2 farming plots inside the Stronghold. One is a fruit tree patch just north of the agility course. The second patch is a regular tree patch just south-west of the southern bank.

Gnomeball

Gnomeball is a mini-game you can play to win your very own Gnomeball, and some small agility experience. Basically, you throw a ball (given to you by the referee) to gnome wingers a few times, and then throw it at the goal. After it goes in five times, you can talk to the ref for a Gnomeball you can take with you. Every goal you make gives you agility exp. The first goal gives 4xp, the second 5xp, the third 6xp, the fourth 7xp, and the final goal gives 30xp. This comes to a total of 52xp for a full game of Gnomeball.

Spirit Trees and Gnome Gliders

Spirit Trees and Gnome Gliders are two of the main ways to get around RuneScape. Both based in the Stronghold, they can teleport you and fly you to locations all around the world. After you complete The Grand Tree quest, King Narnode will give you access to the Spirit Trees and the Gnome Gliders.

Spirit Trees: The tree which is directly north of the entrance can teleport you to any of its brothers around the RuneScape world. Talk to it to be teleported to one of these locations:

  • Tree Gnome Village
  • Forest north of Varrock
  • North of the Gnome-Khazard Battlefield (just south of Ardougne)

Also, you need to know that all teleportation is taken through the larger Spirit Trees at the Tree Gnome Village or the Gnome Stronghold, unless you have completed The Path Of Glouphrie quest.

Gnome Gliders:

Zybez RuneScape Help's Screenshot of the Gnome Glider Map

Go to the top floor of the Grand Tree to find a Gnome Pilot, and his Glider. He can fly you to even more locations than the Spirit Trees. You can fly to these places:

  • Grand Tree (Ta Quir Priw, [you're here now])
  • White Wolf Mountains (Sindarpos)
  • Digsite (Lemanto Andra)
  • Al-Kharid (Kar-Hewo)
  • Karamja Island (Gandius)
  • -When you go here during the quest, it will be a crash landing at a different location then after the quest.
  • Feldip Hills (Lemantolly Undri)
  • -Usable after One Small Favor quest is completed.

Like the Spirit Trees, all flights must come to or from the Grand Tree. From this hub, you can then go to your desired location.
