Taverley

Introduction

Taverley is a druidic town in the far west of Asgarnia. It lies in the shadow of White-Wolf Mountain and the constant threat of the Northern trolls yet the population remains optimistic and is a hive of trade.

Alongside Burthorpe, Taverley is the base for new players having recently joined Runescape. Consequently there are multiple tutors, resources and facilities for visiting players.

Getting There

There are many ways to reach this town, here are the most effective methods:

  • Once players have unlocked the Taverley Lodestone, they may use the free Home Teleport spell to take them to it. Located in the west of Taverely, this spot is very close to the bank and the House Portal.
  • Similarly to the method above, the Burthorpe Lodestone is only around a 30 second run from Taverley. Although slower than other methods it is free and can be used if one hasn't unlocked the Taverley Lodestone.
  • If your house is located in Taverely, you may use a law, air and earth rune at level 40 magic to teleport to your house - then just leave your house to end up in Taverley.
  • After completing the Enlightened Journey quest, players can use the Balloon transport system to travel to Taverley from either Varrock, Entrana, the Crafting Guild, the Tree Gnome Stronghold or Castle Wars. This requires one standard log.
  • The mine-cart system allows travel from Keldragrim to Taverley, the 'station' is in the Dwarven bar north of the Lodestone.
  • After completing Grand Tree quest, you can travel from the Grand Tree to the top of White-Wolf Mountain; from there just run down the eastern side of the mountain to reach Taverely.

Stalls

In the marketplace there are several stalls that players can practice their thieving skill on by stealing items from them. The marketplace is located on the eastern side of the river that runs through the town.

When thieving from the stalls, be aware that a market guard may spot you and start to attack. They are only level 14 but can pose a risk to low-leveled players.

Dungeons

There are quite a few dungeons underneath Taverley and its surrounding area.

Taverely Dungeon

This is one of the largest dungeons in the whole of Gielnor, see its Official Guide for more details.

Dwarven Tunnel

This tunnel is unlocked after the Fishing Contest quest. It allows players to travel under White-Wolf mountain as well as access to Dwarven mine cart travel.

Troll Cave

Just north of the bank there is a well which you can climb down, here you will find multiple trolls that you can kill.

Taverley Slayer Cave

Another dungeon is found next to the balloon; it contains several Gelatinous Abominations that require crushing with spiked gauntlets to kill them. They are assigned as a slayer task from Tureal or Spria.

Taverley Mine

In the eastern side of the mountain there is a cave opening that leads to a mine with several copper, tin and clay rocks.

See the Mining guide for more details of the different kinds of rocks.

Rogues' Den

Underneath a hidden trapdoor in the Pick and Lute pub lies the infamous Rogues' Den. There is an activity where players can train thieving and agility, and for cooking there is an everlasting fire and a bank.

Other Places of Interest

Bank

Until recently there wasn't a bank in Taverley, but now the Bank of Runescape has a well used and popular branch in this prosperous town. Alongside Edgeville, this bank is one of the closest to a lodestone and the second closest bank to a House Portal.

Players can use the bank to deposit items, withdraw items, check their Grand Exchange offers and more.

House Portal

At level 10 Construction and with 5000 coins you can move your Player-Owned-House to Taverley. This is recommended for training as it is the closest house portal to a bank.

The house decoration that corresponds to this location is Basic Stone, which has the same requirements as it does to move your house to Taverley.

The Pick and Lute pub

This is Taverley's only public house, yet it remains a large, well equipped and comfortable place to stay. Players can find the Cooking tutor here, as well as a barman and several bystanders.

Tree Patch

Here players can grow trees, see the Farming guide for more details on growing them.

Potato Patch

This is another farming patch, intended as a starting point for players new to the skill. Conveniently, it is located next to the farming tutor and a compost bin.

Crafting Facilities

There are plenty of useful things to keep players training their Crafting skill efficiently. Firstly, there is a potter's wheel to mould unfired pottery items.

Once this is done, just use the unfired item on the nearby pottery oven to receive the finished pottery.

Players can also train crafting using a loom and a spinning wheel. A spinning wheel is used to produce items such as rope, bowstring and wool.

On the other hand, a loom can make sacks, cloth, nets and baskets.

Smithing Facilities

Due to the constant threat of trolls from the north, the Taverely smith works at full capacity to provide weapons and armour for the Burthorpe Imperial Guard. However, players are still free to train Smithing here.

The furnace here can be used to smelt bars and craft jewelry.

Once some bars have been smelted, they can be smithed into various metal objects on the anvil.

Stone Circle

In the northern, woodland area of the town lies an ancient Stone Circle. Worshippers gather their to pay tribute to Guthix, players can do so as well by recharging their prayer points at the altar.

Players can find Kaqueemix here, a druid who owns and can sell the Herblore Skillcape to anyone who has reached a Herblore level of 99.

Church of Saradomin

This church is a relatively new addition to the town, it was built by saradomnists who have come to aid the Imperial Guard fight against the trolls.

There is an altar inside, as well as the Prayer tutor and her flock.

Summoning Obelisk

In Pikkupstix's Summoning Shop there is a large summoning obelisk where players can craft summoning pouches and scrolls.

Hunting habitats

There are a couple novice creatures that players can hunt in Taverley. On the side of White-Wolf mountain there is a hideout of Polar Kebbits that are caught through Tracking.

Also, there are many Crimson Swifts flying around the town; these can be caught using a bird snare.

Cooking Facilities

Around Taverley there are several places where one can cook food.

Firstly, in the Pick and Lute pub there is an oven.

Secondly, there is a campfire next to the House Portal, surrounded by Burthorpe Refugees.

See the Cooking guide for more details on cooking.

Crops

In Taverley there are two fields with harvestable resources; there is a flax field for crafting bowstrings and a wheat field for making bread.

The Mill

Powered by the river flowing past it, this mill can be used to grind wheat into flour, which in turn can be made into various pies, breads and pizzas.

To make flour, you just need a piece of wheat, and to follow these steps:

  1. Put the Wheat into the hopper.
  2. Operate the controls.
  3. Go downstairs and collect the flour in an empty pot.

Fremennik Docks

This is a set of jetties where a Fremennik longboat resides. From here players can sail to Daemonheim.

God Statue

This is a spot where players can take part in the God Statues Distraction and Diversion.

In this activity you must construct a statue of a champion of a particular God, however, keep in mind who to build in Taverley as if you do not choose to build Juna then you will be attacked by a Guthixian fanatic.

Burnt House

During the Troll Warzone tutorial, you must dash throw this burning building to rescue Nora, who has fallen down the stairs and injured herself. Once you have succeeded in this the Druids put out the fire leaving a burnt yet intact house.
