Fairy land Zanaris has its own quest and it’s called Lost City. In searchs of a mystical lost city, a group of adventurers have set up camp in Lumbridge Swamp. Gain entrance to the moon of Gielinor, Zanaris and find the truth about the mystical city.
|Start point||Go to Lumbridge Swamp. Talk to the campers there.|
|Description||The legendary lost city of Zanaris is out there somewhere. Can you find it?|
|Enemies to defeat||Tree Spirit (level 101)|
There are couple ways to start this quest. You can either teleport to Draynor and head Southeast or head straight into the Lumbridge Swamp. Afterwards, navigate to northwest corner of the swamp to find a Wizard, an Archer, a Monk and a Warrior standing around a camp-fire. Conversation should be started with the warrior and here is the dialogue options you should choose in order:
After the last option, he becomes angry and accidentally reveals about leprechaun hiding in a nearby tree. He also tells that you should inquire him about Zanaris whereabouts.
"Chop", instead of "Chop down."
Afterwards, head west and look for a tree that strangely instead of “Chop-down” has only “Chop” option. Leprechaun named Shamus will pop out after you click on the tree. Once you ask him about Zanaris whereabouts, he will instruct you to intervene with Dramen staff. Chopping a tree inside of Entrana Dungeon is required to get this.If you are short in OSRS Gold - buy some here! Extra simple, extra usefull!
Items required: Combat runes, a knife and quality food
Entrana rules won’t allow you to bring weapons or armour, but instead, you can take the following:
Travel to Port Sarim. You will see a bank deposit box and monks of Entrana on the north east dock. Take the boat to Entrana after storing your axe in the bank deposit box. Go the east through the temple after boarding off the boat. After that, head north over bridge and then west. Next to a dungeon entrance you will find a monk. Enter the dungeon by climbing down.
Note: Your prayer will be reduced to nearly 0 when you enter the dungeon. It’s strongly suggested to bring at least one prayer potion if you’re not safespotting.
After you reach the dungeon, kill level 25 zombies until of them drops a bronze axe. A spot next to the west wall is perfect for safespotting. You can find another of those by the little group of mushrooms in southern part of the zombie area. Zombies can be killer by using the Crumble Undead spell, however, use mathematics and save runes for at least 20-30 casts against the tree spirit later. Finished fighting with the zombies? Excellent. Now venture around the cave until you see a small cave off to the south and some greater demons. Avoid using the magical door to the east, as it will take you to level 32 Wilderness. Enter the cave and chop the Dramen Tree found inside with your axe.
A safe spot for ranging or casting magic on the Tree Spirit.
Be prepared for a level 101 tree spirit, as it will come out of nowhere. If you run all the way to the north and then hide behind the mushrooms in the south, you can easily safespot this fight. If your armour level is around 25, bring more that 200 arrows for Range. Materials will be required to craft your own armour and fletch your own bow. Tree spirit absorbs most melee attacks and hits very hard, so melee is not recommended. You can make a smart move and travel to a rune store in Port Sarim to buy runes, hide behind the fungi to the south of the tree and use magic. Crumble Undead is highly recommended, as it is extremely effective against those type of creatures. Even at the starter level, tree spirit can be disposed with as few as 10 casts.
This is not the only method that can weaken the tree spirit. For example, if you bring a friend or other player to do this quest alongside you, he must not directly damage the tree spirit. Although, he should use the ring of recoil is required to achieve this. If the player doing the quest deals at least 1 damage at any point during the fight, this should do the trick.
Cut the tree again to get a Dramen branch after you kill the tree spirit.
Note: Get another Dramen branch if you’re planning to do The Fremenik Trials later. Just don’t make it into a staff so that you can smuggle it in Thorvald’s trial. Also, if you plan to free Sir Amik Varze in Recipe for Disaster, take another branch.
To get a Dramen staff, you must use a knife with the Dramen branch.
CAUTION: Once again, don’t use magical door, unless YOLO, because you will be teleported into level 32 Wilderness.
Items required: Dramen staff
Entrance to Zanaris.
Travel back to the Lumbridge Swamp. If you prefer quick transportation, use Lumbridge Home Teleport. Enter the small hut in the middle of the swamp while wielding your Dramen staff and you’ll find yourself in Zanaris.That’s it, quest completed!
