Teleporting using the medallion.

A player teleports using the medallion.

Drakan's medallion is a reward from The Branches of Darkmeyer that provides teleports around Morytania after the quest is completed. During the quest, the medallion is first discovered in a coffin, and is called mysterious medallion. It is later enchanted by Safalaan and Vanescula Drakan to create Drakan's medallion. Should the medallion ever be lost or destroyed, you can get it back from the coffin in the cave where the medallion was originally found. The entrance to the cave is found just south of the bank in Burgh de Rott.

The medallion initially has 10 charges. It can be recharged by dipping it into the blood pool in the Burgh de Rott cave. Upon charging it, you receive the message, You dip the medallion in the pool. The symbol glows as it recharges. Congealed blood can be used on the medallion to add one teleport charge per congealed blood, up to a maximum of 25,000 charges.

Teleportation[edit | edit source]

Teleporting with the medallion from anywhere within the land of Morytania (which includes Canifis, Port Phasmatys, Mos Le'Harmless, Everlight and underground areas) does not use any charges and may even be done when the amulet has 0 charges. However, teleporting from Paterdomus, or from any other part of RuneScape uses one charge. Therefore, if one wants to save or negate the need for charges, it is a good idea to first teleport into Morytania using the Canifis Lodestone or the ectophial to teleport to Port Phasmatys, then use the medallion to teleport to the desired location. This effectively gives the medallion an unlimited amount of charges.

The medallion is extremely useful for teleporting around Morytania, since no charges are used when teleporting in most places there. It allows quick banking at Burgh de Rott and quick Prayer recharging at the altar in Darkmeyer. This is particularly useful for players doing Barrows, as banking and prayer recharging are both needed to do multiple runs of that minigame. Be aware that the vyres in Darkmeyer will attack a player going to the altar there unless the player is wearing the Darkmeyer disguise. However, Protect from/Deflect Melee will partially protect the player from the attacks.

It includes teleports to the following locations:

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • On release, teleporting from the slime pit, from inside the Barrows, or within the Shade Catacombs caused the medallion to use a charge. All these locations have now been fixed.
  • Before the update on 28 January 2019, this item had the third most teleport charges on a rechargeable item, after the sceptre of the gods that had up to 20 and the mighty slayer helmet that had up to 40 ring of slaying charges and 30 ferocious ring charges.
  • The "Submerge medallion" option on the blood pool uses a space rather than a hyphen, unlike many other right click options.
  • Teleporting from the Abbey of St. Elspeth Citharede with the medallion will not use a charge. This is most likely due to its proximity with Morytania.
