In the past, Misthalin has pushed back the dark menace from Morytania as well as ensuring that the inhabitants of the Wilderness remain in the desolate north. If either were to spill over the borders and into Misthalin, Varrock would be the first line of defence, and the single hope the world might have to stop them.
The city is not without its own problems, though, and the divide between the wealthy and the poor is like a great scar across the city. The southern half is full of thieves and the poverty-stricken, while the north, with the palace and fine shops, is populated by those who do not wish to see the dirtier parts of the city.
North of the city is the Wilderness, a lawless land of murderers, rogues and monsters.
Being an important city, there are a variety of ways to arrive at Varrock, whether on foot, teleporting, or beneath the ground.
Varrock has possibly everything you could want from a city: the shops are well-stocked; members will find that there is the Sawmill operator just to the north-east of the city; there are mines and Farming patches; there is a good handful of quests to be done.
Be sure to admire the palace while you're there; it's a massive structure with a number of guards and soldiers constantly training or on duty. You'll also note that the entire city looks prepared for an invasion - such is the price of sitting so close to the Wilderness and Morytania. Walking about near Varrock's eastern bank is a Town crier, who is more than happy to explain the Rules of Conduct and the role of Player Moderators.
Almost certainly the grandest structure after the palace is the Grand Exchange, in the north-west of the city. There, traders from around RuneScape come to buy and sell, each hoping to find bargains and sell them for a tidy profit.
You can access the rune essence mine by having a quick chat with Aubury, who can be found in his rune shop in the south-east of the city. As there are only a very small number of people who can teleport you there, it's good to make sure you know where he lives.
South of the city is the Champions' Guild, which are constantly keeping an eye out for talented adventurers. They also have a couple of shops built into the building upstairs.
Aside from this, the guards and locals might prove intriguing to those interested in advancing their skills, so it's a good thing that the city is large enough to accommodate a good number.
