A quiet town on the west bank of the River Lum, Lumbridge presents a good start to adventurers just fresh from the conflict of the Troll Warzone. The weather is always fine and the citizens are usually friendly. Despite its imposing castle, ruled by 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 times.
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 will deliver you to Draynor Village, 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.
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.
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.
The farms to the north of Lumbridge are also worth a look, as they are usually quite well stocked and the farmers are not inclined to complain if you are forced to steal a cabbage out of hunger.
The 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.
The field to the north of the windmill 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.
|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 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.|
||Phileas, the Lumbridge Sage
|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.||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.|
||Bob, of Bob's Brilliant Axes
|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 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 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 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.|
||Fred the Farmer
|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.||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.|
The following quests can be started in Lumbridge:
|Giant spider (Level 4)
||Goblin (Level 4)
|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)
|Giant rats can be found west of Lumbridge Castle and in the swamps to the south of town.|
If you're in a hurry for a snack, Lumbridge is possibly the best place in the world. There are a couple of good Fishing spots on the far side of the river, overstocked farms to the north, and chickens. Chickens are a great source of food as they are very simple to kill, drop feathers for Fletching and when cooked properly they're quite tasty. On top of that, chickens lay eggs, so keep an eye out for the feathered creatures.
Cows are also useful, as they provide both beef and cowhide. They can be found north-east across the river on Farmer Groats's land. If you take a bucket you can milk the dairy cows.
Sheep in the pen in the north of Lumbridge will provide you with wool, though you will need to get some shears first.
