The lost city of Zanaris is a members only area that requires you to complete the Lost City quest in order to enter. When entering the small, seemingly useless hut in Lumbridge swamps, while wielding the Dramen staff, you will be teleported into the lost city. It is also possible to enter Zanaris through the cosmic rift in the abyss. This does not require the use of a dramen staff, but you still have to complete the lost city quest. Zanaris is popular for its cosmic Runecrafting altar, otherworldly beings, and furnace. There are also many other things to discover within the marketplace.

Special Attractions
The Slayer Master

One of the five RuneScape slayer masters can be found in the lost city. Chaeldar gives out medium-high level slayer assignments. Slayer skill items, such as mirror shields, facemasks, nose pegs, leaf-bladed spears, etc. can be bought here as well.

Otherworldly Beings

These attackable NPC's are level 64 and are located just south of the range in western Zanaris. They are not aggressive and are close to the bank, which makes them a quite popular training spot. They also have some medium-good drops given their low level.

Runecrafting - Cosmic Altar

This altar is quite easy to pick out on the map. It is located at the end of the trail south of the main part of the underground city. It is quite a walk from the bank, however you will receive decent experience from Runecrafting such runes. The altar consists of a space-like area full of flashing lights and stars.


The Zanaris marketplace is located in the south-east end of the underground city. There are two shops within the marketplace; however you must pay the doorman one cut diamond to enter. The two shopkeepers in the marketplace are Irksol and Jakut.

The Zanaris Furnace

The furnace in Zanaris is very close to the bank as is the one in Al-Kharid. You will likely find many higher levels practicing their smelting here because of the peacefulness.

The Fairy Rings

Once you have reached step 8 of our Fairy Tale Part II guide, you will have access to the Fairy rings. These rings allow transportation to all over Runescape. All you need is your Dramen Staff(Received from Lost City). For more information on Fairy rings, please read our Fairy Rings guide.

Access to Puro-Puro

Zanaris has the only permanent link to Puro-Puro and the Impetuous Impulses mini game. Players can access the Impling plains by using the teleport in the middle of the wheat field. The mini game can be used by all hunters from level 17 up and can give rewards ranging from buckets all the way up to dragon arrows and darts. For more information on the mini game and Puro-Puro read our Impetuous Impulses mini game guide.

Otherworldly being (level-64) More information
Examine: Is he invisible or just a set of floating clothing?

Tanglefoot (level-111) More information
Examine: A walking thorn bush!
Zygomite (level-74) More information
Examine: A bouncy fungus.
