TzHaar Language

Why learn TzHaar?

Admittedly, learning TzHaar is unnecessary; most TzHaar creatures will translate anything important for you and the other phrases aren't needed to play RuneScape completely. However, despite this, some players may enjoy learning a new language, be it for immersion or just curiosity. Beyond this, most people who play RuneScape will not be fluent in TzHaar, so it can be used to show off your knowledge of RuneScape, or to help out that one player who wonders what the English name of his Tok-Mej-Tal is.

How do we know TzHaar?

There are several sources of TzHaar translation. The first is from the TzHaar themselves; in some circumstances, they will tell you what something means in English. A good example of this is when you are called YtHaar, which the TzHaar who dons the title on to you instantly informs you means 'Sacred Cold' in English. However, the main source in which we learn translations from TzHaar to English is a book that is gained during 'TokTz-Ket-Dill' (Large Obsidian Armadillo). This book, the 'Tzhaar tourist guide', contains the translations of many words and phrases that allow us to grasp the TzHaar language. However, as the book is limited, very little TzHaar is currently translated into English, and certainly not enough to strike up a conversation in it. Despite this, most of the current TzHaar words in RuneScape have been translated into English.

For a copy of the TzHaar guide, it is available from a bookshelf in Varrock Library. It comes complete with a note that contains all the numbers that the TzHaar use. After 'TokTz-Ket-Dill' is complete, you can also retrieve a copy from a bookshelf in a Player-owned house.

This book is the main source for translations, and as a result most of the words found on this list are from this book. The few that are not present in this book are either from in-game TzHaar characters or phrases that Jagex have translated officially.

TzHaar numbers use special symbols instead of letters, so they cannot be reproduced in text form. However, the following note (Taken from the Tzhaar tourist guide) does contain the logical progression that TzHaar numbers follow. As mentioned earlier, the TzHaar use 'Xo' as a +, and 'Zi' as a -.
