Introduction

Morytania is known for it's foul beasts, and scary ghosts, but Canifis is home to something much more ferocious. Werewolves. Tucked away in the north-eastern corner of RuneScape, Canifis is only accessible via teleport, or completion of the Priest in Peril quest. Only one weapon can deactivate the transformation of a man or woman into a werewolf; the Wolfbane. Regardless of the werewolves, Canifis is often busy with players bustling through to the Barrows east of Mort'ton, or the Slayer Tower north-west of the town.

Special Attractions
Slayer Tower

The Slayer Tower inhabitants area very rare and mysterious creatures. These inhabitants are found in precious few locations in RuneScape, and adventurer's are often encouraged by slayer masters to come and fight these beasts. While they do not give any Slayer XP unless you have been assigned to kill them, they do have rather good drops. The creatures in the tower range from Crawling Hands, to Infernal Mages, from Gargoyles to Abyssal Demons, et al.

Mushroom Farming

Canifis holds the only farming patch that allows you to grow Bittercap mushrooms. Anyone who is interested in growing some mushrooms, this is the place for you. Bittercap mushrooms are used at level 44 cooking, to make Moonlight Mead.

Tanner

Sbott runs a tanning store in the north part of town, that tans your hides at what are claimed to be competitive prices. This tanning store is actually the closest to the bank. Tanning soft leather sets you back 2gp, hard leather 5gp, dragonhides 45gp, and snakeskin 25gp.

Hair of the Dog Tavern

Roavar runs the tavern in town, where many of the inhabitants hang out. It features a lovely patio, which is frequently used for ranged, and cannon training. Roavar sells Moonlight Meads for 5gp, and a pickled brain is for sale for 50gp and on display on one of the tavern tables. The bar pumps and tables also make good ranging spots. A shortcut to the swamp is behind the bar, provided you have done In Search of the Myreque.

Fairy Rings

Players can travel to Canifis with the Fairy Rings, by using the code: C-K-S. To access the Fairy Rings you must have completed A Fairy Tale Part II quest.
