Death Plateau (location)

|doc • Talk page|
The Death Plateau is an elevated plane located in the southern Troll Country. The Trolls have taken up camp on the plateau, using it to launch raids at night on the nearby village of Burthorpe. In the Death Plateau quest the player is asked by Denulth, head of the Burthorpe Imperial Guard, to find another way up to the plateau, as the main path is heavily guarded. Several Thrower trolls watch the pass and attack any trespassers.
Getting there[edit | edit source]
To reach the plateau itself (where the trolls are located), follow the main path up the plateau. Due to a large amount of Thrower trolls guarding this route it is recommended to use Protect from Missiles. Alternatively, if you do not have access to this prayer, you can use a Fremennik Round Shield to lower damage to about 10-20 life points.
Features[edit | edit source]
At the centre of the Plateau lies a gigantic Cooking pot where many unlucky adventurers and soldiers have met their ends. The Cooking pot is maintained by Ash and Dung, two troll cooks who often argue about the best methods of cooking humans for lunch.
Players who received a troll Slayer task often come here with a cannon, as it guarantees quick experience while being able to hide behind the tents there.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Sometimes, when a troll attacks the player as they are climbing the cliffside in the route to God Wars Dungeon, the player appears to climb air like they do the cliff. They will be placed on top of the cliff.
- Players used to be able to take a longer, safer route out of range of the thrower trolls if they cut through Tenzing's house.
