Lost City Adventurer Camp
Adventurers searching for Zanaris.

1: Getting started

To start the quest first head to Draynor Village south-east of the prison and you will find a camp with 4 adventurers: a monk, a wizard, a warrior, and an archer. Speak to the warrior and he will start to reveal the whereabouts of Zanaris. When questioning him, try to act stupid, ask who Zanaris is for example (Zanaris is a place, not a person) and eventually he will tell you about a leprechaun they're looking for.

2: The leprechaun

To find this leprechaun you will need to chop a certain tree. The tree is north-west of the adventurers' fire pit, it will say "chop tree" instead of "chop down tree." When you attempt to chop the tree, a little fella in green called Shamus will appear.

Lost City Chop Tree

Talk to him and he will tell you how to enter Zanaris: with a staff carved from the dramen tree found on Entrana. Shamus will then offer to teleport you to Port Sarim.

3: The Dramen staff

To gain access to Entrana you won't be allowed to bring any weapons or armour, this including almost all equippable items that give bonuses, with the exception of all amulets, some robes, and some capes (the robes and capes that give almost no bonuses) which are allowed. You can use Master Runecrafter robes on the island - they are the only robes that have some type of stat and are still allowed to be worn on the island.

You may bring all the runes and arrows you want. You may also wish to bring some fletching and crafting items to make your own ranger armour and weapons on the island. You can bring leather, needles, threads, arrows, unstrung bows, and bow strings to the island. If you want good equipment bring a friend with high crafting and/or fletching to make you some items, or make some yourself. You may also wish to bring prayer potions, other potions and food.

Once you are at Port Sarim, speak to the monks to travel to Entrana (the first boat dock south of the pub.)

On Entrana head east, go north to cross the bridge then head west until you see a cave monk. If you try to use the dungeon ladder he will warn you about the evil in it. You will only be able to exit by teleporting or going through a portal which takes you to Draynor Village.

4: Entrana Dungeon

Once you climb down the ladder your prayer will be drained nearly completely. You will also come across some zombies. If you need some weapons or armour, you can kill them until they drop a bronze hatchet and a bronze medium helmet.

Up ahead are some greater demons (level 92) guarding a portal. Do not go through the portal yet. You are not required to fight them, but if you choose to, you might get some steel or mithril armour or even a rune full helmet as drops. South of the greater demons is the dramen tree!

Entrana Dungeon

You won't be able to cut a branch from it yet however. When you try, a level 90 tree spirit will attack you! You must defeat it before you are able to cut a branch from it.

The tree spirit hits for up to 100 damage. You can trap it on the far side of the rocks and/or mushrooms and safely range/mage it to death. You may need to turn off "run" if your character keeps annoying you by coming out of your hiding spot.

When the tree spirit is dead, you will be allowed to cut a dramen branch. While there, you can choose to cut lots of extras so you will never have to come back. At this point you can now run through the portal which will take you to Draynor Village or you can teleport out.

Now use a knife on the branch to make yourself a dramen staff!

Wield the dramen staff and now head towards the adventurers where you started. Past the swamp you will find a small shed. If you enter wielding your dramen staff, your world will start to shimmer and you will now be in Zanaris!
