Al Kharid

Introduction

Al Kharid is a desert city-state in the northern Kharidian peninsula that was founded roughly 230 years ago. Here, cosmopolitan entrepreneurs in stuffy shops and tawdry bazaars crowd the streets, and political unrest envelops the city in times of uncertainty. Unaffected by the noxious desert heat found south of the Shantay, Al Kharid has become a thriving community, business commerce, and tourist destination. To the northeast, the famous Duel Arena fighting pits can be found, rebuilt from ruins dating back thousands of years, which remains till today the most popular attraction in Al Kharid.

World Map

Palace

The Al-Kharid Palace is the home of the Emir, and the Al Kharid government. It is inaccessible until after the completion of the "Stolen Hearts" quest, and is constantly under heavy guard by warriors patrolling the Palace.

Ali Mirza is the current Emir of Al-Kharid, and he can be found in the first floor. Hassan, the Chancellor, can award those who have completed the easy Desert Tasks; Osman, found in the center of the hall, can exchange Sq'irk Juice for thieving experience. Just outside, there is a fountain that can be used as a water source, and warriors that novice thieves can pickpocket for relatively fast thieving experience.

Bank

The Bank is located southwest of the city, on the west side of the Al-Kharid Palace. Many people use this bank to train Smithing and Cooking, due to the close proximity of the range and furnace to the bank. It also used to be well known for cowhide merchanting, but this practice was made obsolete after the opening of the Grand Exchange.

Kebab Shop

Karim's Kebab Shop is located north of the bank. Here, players can buy Kebabs for 1gp each, and use the range for cooking.

Tannery

The Tannery can be found directly south of the Gnome Glider. Here, Ellis can tan raw hides for you, so they can be used for crafting. Only the first two, Leather and Hard Leather, are f2p; the rest are members only.

Silk Trader

The Silk Trader sells silk for 3gp each. He refuses to lower the price of the silk, claiming that the player will go and sell his silk to Varrock for profit. You can not sell the silk back to the trader. An easy way to make money is to buy silk for 3gp and then reselling the silk to the Ardounge silk trader for 60gp. This is a very common way to make money on 2007Scape.

North of the city, a large mining site full of scorpions can be found. It contains an abundance of ores, particularly iron, that makes it a popular place for mining ores.

Duel Arena is a safe minigame located northeast of Al-Kharid. Here, players can challenge each other for fights to the death. Games can either be friendly or staked, and the opponents can choose the rules and regulations of their duel. At the gate to Duel Arena, players can obtain a Duellist cap, which comes in 6 different tiers, and records the players kills in the arena.

Features

  • There are two furnaces and an anvil located slightly north of the bank. The furnace north the Kebab shop is commonly used for smithing training, due to it being the closest furnace to a bank in f2p.
  • West of the bank, players can take free boat rides to and from the southeast shore of Daemonheim.
  • The Fire Altar is located near the gate of the Duel Arena.
