Lumbridge

Lumbridge
lumbridge intro1.jpg
Lumbridge, a rural township
Area Misthalin
Quest required None

A quiet town on the west bank of the River Lum, Lumbridge presents a good start for adventurers fresh from the conflict of the Troll Warzone. The weather is always fine and the citizens are usually friendly. Despite its imposing castle, the seat of the generous Duke Horacio, the town is founded on its farms. There is much to do in Lumbridge, though, and it boasts a variety of training and practice opportunities, whatever your particular interests may be.

The town's buildings are all made of the same grey stone that has survived through the years. This is the sort of determination that has seen Lumbridge through even the hardest of times.

Location

A map showing the location of Lumbridge
Map of Lumbridge

Lumbridge lies directly south of Varrock, the capital of Misthalin and seat of King Roald. East from Lumbridge is the gate to Al Kharid, a major desert town that spans the desert from the Lumbridge gate to the Shantay Pass. Travelling west from Lumbridge - if you want to navigate the dangers of a god's battlefield - will deliver you to Draynor, a small town menaced by the ominous Draynor Manor.

As a rural township, there is a cluster of farms to the north where the locals scratch a living from the soil. There is also a windmill, which supplies most of the surrounding region with flour for bread, cakes and other baked treats. To the south of the town is Lumbridge Swamp, a sodden and dreary area filled with twisted mangroves and home to The Nexus.

Points of Interest

Lumbridge's points of interest

Northern Farms

Towards the northeast, you'll find the Minigame Cabbage Facepunch Bonanza minigame which is available to free players and members alike just north of the Lumbridge crater.

Beefy Bill's cowpen (not depicted on the map) can be found to the north of the Windmill windmill. See the stores section of this page for more details.

The windmill itself can be found conveniently located next to a wheat field.

Farmer Fred can be found in the farmhouse just to the south of the cabbage patch where players may start the Sheep Shearer miniquest.

East Bank

The river Lum is bridged at three points in and around Lumbridge. The eastern half of the town has only recently fallen under attack by raiding bands of goblins. Except for a few intrepid farmers which have managed to hold the goblins at bay, nearly all of the residents have either been slain by goblins or have fled westward across the river.

Despite this hostile environment, there are numerous points of interest along the eastern bank of the river Lum. Just across the northernmost bridge, you'll find a cowpen along with Gillie Groats and here dairy cows. Members will additionally be able to speak to Copernicus Glyph in order to sculpt one of his four statues. Members icon

To the north, you'll come across the house of an unnamed, attackable Farmer in possession of a Dairy churn dairy churn. Just outside of his fenced off chicken coop, you'll find yourself three Willow trees requiring a Woodcutting Woodcutting level of 30 to cut. Vasquen the farmer will tend to your produce in his Farming patch hops patch located west across the main road beyond the stone fence.

The eastern banks are also a great place for catching various breeds of fish including trout, salmon, pike, and rainbow fishMembers icon using either a fishing rod or a fly fishing rod. These fishing locations are marked by a Fishing spot symbol on the minimap.

Main Town

No guide to Lumbridge would be complete without mentioning the castle. This mighty edifice has stood guard over the town for far longer than anyone can remember and looks set to continue in this way for many years and decades to come.

Just by the northernmost covered bridge on the west side of the River Lum, you'll find a house with a trapdoor behind it taking you into the Thieves' Guild If you've completed the quest Quest start Buyers and Cellars. Members icon

Lady Deathknell's Combat Academy can be found just to south, along with the town forge. Skilled smiths will be able to utilise the Furnace Furnace and the Anvil Anvils located here. Just outside the furnace hut, you'll find the Lumbridge Canoe Station run by Barfy Bill at which intrepid woodcutters may canoe to a variety of points along the river Lum, including into the Wilderness.

Roddeck the (former) advisor's can be found just south of the furnace building. Outside his house is a Resting spot Musician, a Farming patch tree farming patch Members icon and the Herald of Lumbridge located conveniently next to a handy road sign.

The town general store can be found right next to Taskmaster Explorer Jack's house just to the south of the Combat Academy. Just near the entrance to the crater at the end of this short road is Fishing shop Wyant's Fishing Store (see Shops section for more details) right next to the memorial fountain.

Battle of Lumbridge

To the west is a large crater where a battle has recently finished taking place.

Downtown

The Altar Church just north of the graveyard is a good place to recharge your prayer points, and Father Aereck is always up for a chat about the finer points of modern theology. Tombs and graves are also a good starting point for an adventurer for Father Aereck to help you out with. Gravestone

Travel south of the church and the Lumbridge graveyard and you'll find a jetty that leads to a Fremennik longboat. This will take you to Daemonheim, where you can train your Dungeoneering skill.


General storeShops

Shopping in Lumbridge doesn't need to be expensive. As a promotion to attract customers, the stores of Lumbridge offer free items - as long as you haven't taken a sample recently.

Along the north side of the castle walls, aspiring adventurers will be able to purchase a wide variety of goods from the Lumbridge General Store.

Bob's Brilliant Axes.png

The field to the north of the windmill - not shown on the map - was once the home of Gnomecopter Tours, but since it ceased trading Beefy Bill has set up residence in the surrounding paddock. He will send any unnoted beef, cowhides or flour you have to your bank for a 10% commission.

Personalities

Duke Horacio Sigmund
Duke Horacio chathead
Duke Horacio is the chivalrous ruler of Lumbridge. His family has a long history of watching over the town, and so he has become a careful and wise Duke, much as his father was before him.
Sigmund chathead
Sigmund is the Duke's advisor and a citizen of good standing in Lumbridge. He isn't fully trusted by the townsfolk, though, as many believe he holds too much influence over the Duke's decisions.
The Duke can be found in his chamber on the first floor of the castle. Sigmund can be found with the Duke, probably advising him on matters of state.
The Cook Phileas, the Lumbridge Sage
Cook chathead
Duke Horacio's personal cook is a strange sort of man for his job. He seems constantly underprepared and more than a little bewildered by his post. Despite this, he occasionally manages to prepare food that mere commoners have no right to eat.
Lumbridge Sage chathead
Phileas is the oldest and wisest citizen of Lumbridge, and he doesn't mind sharing his wisdom with any who ask. So old is the Lumbridge Sage, that few remember he was once the librarian of Varrock Palace.
The Cook, obviously, can be found in the castle kitchen. Phileas is never far from the signpost by the bridge across the Lum.
Father Aereck Bob, of Bob's Brilliant Axes
Father Aereck chathead
Father Aereck is the local priest of Saradomin and is exceedingly proud of his church (it is over 230 years old, you know). He is also a keen organist, much to the annoyance of his neighbours as he plays late into the night.
Bob chathead
Bob has been grinding hatchets for at least as long as anyone cares to remember, and in a town like Lumbridge his skills are always in high demand. He can be gruff at times, but if you're short of a hatchet and have some gold to spend he'll be right with you. Bob is also able to repair certain types of armor- for a fee, of course.
Father Aereck can always be found looking after his church in the south-east of Lumbridge. Bob is always in his shop just south of Lumbridge Castle.
Roddeck Xenia
Roddeck chathead
With his modest personality it's easy to forget that Roddeck almost brought terrible ruin to Lumbridge by keeping a pet dragon. Whether he is mending his ways or simply being an eccentric busybody, Roddeck is interesting to talk to and a good source of advice.
Xenia chathead
Xenia travelled to Lumbridge to investigate rumours of Zamorakian cult activity. A seasoned adventurer, she seeks to impart her knowledge and experience onto a new generation of promising young heroes. She can be found in Lumbridge Graveyard. She also has a reward for the most dedicated of questing heroes.
Roddeck can be found from your advisors button, or in his house on the east side of Lumbridge. Xenia can be found in the graveyard of Lumbridge Church.
Nastroth Fred the Farmer
Nastroth chathead
Nastroth is a big fella, but not as big as his older brother, Mandrith, who resides in Edgeville. Both of them will buy any of the rarer drops you can get from revenants in the Forinthry Dungeon.
Fred the Farmer chathead
A farmer with a fluffy problem, Fred also manages a crop of onions but mainly resides in his farmhouse in fear of a terrible shape-shifter.
Nastroth can be found wandering about Lumbridge Castle's courtyard. Fred can be found relaxing in his farmhouse.
Herald of Lumbridge Lady Deathknell
Lady Deathknell chathead
The Herald of Lumbridge is a bubbly and friendly person, and gives the impression of an aunt or older relative who does local theatre or amateur dramatics.
Lady Deathknell chathead
Lady Deathknell was once an adventurer who claims to have explored many of the lands of Gielinor and has now settled down at Lumbridge, to help other adventurers start their journeys.
The Lumbridge herald is found in the center of Lumbridge. Lady Deathknell can be found north of the castle at the Combat Academy.
Doomsayer Kara-Meir
Doomsayer chathead
The doomsayer isn't quite your traditional doomsayer - he's not likely to shout DOOOOM at you all the time - he's really just a middle aged townsman.
Kara-Meir chathead
As a younger woman, Kara-Meir was an adventurer where she achieved some renown. She is a practical woman who cares about those close to her. Now she is a member of The Godless and is determined to bring about the end of all gods.
The Doomsayer is in central Lumbridge, near the bridge that crosses the River Lum. Kara-Meir stands overlooking the battlefield west of Lumbridge.

Quest startQuests

The following quests can be started in Lumbridge:

The Creatures that Lurk

Giant spider ( Level 4 | Weak to weak to crush.gif ) Goblin ( Level 8 | Weak to weak to air.gif )
Giant spider Giant spiders are a common creature in the lands of RuneScape and can be dangerous foes. Mercifully, the giant spiders around Lumbridge are a puny breed and should present no difficulties, even to novice adventurers.
Goblin Goblins are one of the most widely spread races of RuneScape, such that if they were ever properly organised they might threaten larger towns. It is a good thing, then, that they are a poorly organised race and prone to bickering. Goblins are, like giant spiders, quite simple opponents.
Giant spiders are most commonly found behind Lumbridge Castle. The goblins around Lumbridge tend to mill about to the north and west of the town. There is also a significant cluster of goblins over the river to the east.
Giant rat ( Level 10 | Weak to weak to earth.gif )
Giant rat Just like giant spiders and goblins, giant rats are a common sight. They are slightly tougher than goblins and giant spiders, but this still doesn't say much.
Giant rats can be found west of Lumbridge Castle and in the swamps to the south of town.
