Points of Interest[edit | edit source]
Banks[edit | edit source]
Varrock's banks are located near to the eastern and western gates. Both buildings are large and easy to spot.
East Bank[edit | edit source]
The east bank is located due west from the east gate, just north or Aubury's Rune Shop. The close location to the bank makes it a popular stop for those mining Rune Essence, especially players turning them into Earth Runes as part of their runs.
The east bank's Mailbox is located outside of the bank, at the bottom of the stairs
West Bank[edit | edit source]
The west bank is located directly next to the west gate. The bank is popular with many players smithing their bars into items, being the closest to the anvils and in close proximity to a General Store for selling items to.
Pubs[edit | edit source]
The area of Varrock contains several pubs which are at present decoration only, except for the Blue Moon Inn.
Blue Moon Inn[edit | edit source]
The Blue Moon Inn is the location of 2 Named NPCs and a Bartender. The occupants of the Inn are currently Johnny the Beard, an NPC that is killed for the Shield of Arrav quest (Quest currently not in-game,) and Dr. Harlow, a retired, and very drunk vampire slayer, who you contact for the Vampire Slayer quest.
Dancing Donkey Inn[edit | edit source]
The Dancing Donkey Inn is a largly unknown pub within Varrock due to its out-of-the-way location, in the south-eastern part of the city. At present there is nothing here, however is a location that is visited for the Biohazard Quest (Quest currently not in-game)
The Jolly Boar Inn[edit | edit source]
The Jolly Boar Inn, though on the outside of the city walls, is still considered a Varrockian bar due to the vicinity it is in.
Guilds[edit | edit source]
Varrock is home to two guilds, which reside outside of the cities walls.
Cooks' Guild[edit | edit source]
The Cooks' Guild (aka the Cooking Guild) is a three story building just to the west of Varrock. The building incorperates a windmill into its design, with a small wheat field behind.
Champions' Guild/Warriors Guild
The Champions' Guild is located outside of Varrock, to the southwest of the city, just below the west Varrock mine. The guild is the starting location of the Dragon Slayer quest (Quest currently not in-game.)
South of the eastern bank is Aubury's Rune Shop. Although Aubury currently sells no runes, he is the only place that players can go to enter the Rune Essence Mines. Within the mines players can find 4 peaks of rune essence, and each block yields one, unstackable rune essence. Players wishing to leave the mines may either teleport out, or return to the center of the mines to find an NPC that will teleport you back to Aubury's shop.
Mines[edit | edit source]
Varrock is home to two large mines, full of various lower level materials.
East Mine[edit | edit source]
Varrocks eastern mine, found outside of the south gate and to the east is a large, open pit mine with access to plently of Copper, Coal, and Iron. Strangely the mine also houses a single piece of adamant ore. Although there is plenty of ore, it is extremely spread out making running between nodes slightly time consuming.
West Mine[edit | edit source]
Varrocks western mine, found outside of the south gate and to the west is a large scar like mine, with many ores being level with the floor. It is home to only Coal and Iron, but houses twice as much Coal as it does Iron, meaning it is a great place for players to mine the ingredients for Steel Bars if they mine everything.
