Enchanted lyre detail.png

An enchanted lyre is made from a regular lyre during The Fremennik Trials quest. After creating and stringing the lyre, it can be enchanted by offering certain raw fish to the Fossegrimen's altar south-west of Rellekka. The enchantment is needed for a performance, which will get Olaf the Bard's vote to become a Fremennik.

After completing the quest, additional charges can be bound to the lyre that teleport the player to near the dock of Rellekka. However, the teleport has become less useful due to the Rellekka house portal (and Rellekka tablet) as well as the Fremennik lodestone.

With the update of 8 February 2021 (update), all existing older lyres (using the (x) charge notation) were removed and replaced with the new lyre item that stores charges internally.

Teleport Charges[edit | edit source]

Location of the altar.

The lyre can be enchanted by offering certain raw fish to the Fossegrimen's altar south-west of Rellekka. Lyres can hold a maximum of 60 charges, and can be recharged at any point.

There are three types of fish that the player may offer, a raw shark, a raw manta ray, and a raw sea turtle. However, if players equip a ring of charos (a), they can convince the spirit that a raw bass is really a small shark, and she will recharge the lyre.

  • Remotely charging the Enchanted Lyre with the Fremennik Sea Boots gives, respectively, 10, 20, and 30 charges for the fish above.
  • Completing the easy Fremennik achievements will cause fish to give an extra 20 charges.
  • Lyres can now be charged at any point rather than only at 0 charges.
  • Completing the elite Fremennik achievements unlocks the ability to change the teleport destination from right-click option on the Lyre itself, instead of having to visit Olaf the Bard.

By operating the Fremennik sea boots 2 or better, players can teleport with their lyre without using up a charge (the lyre does not need to be charged since it will use none). Both the boots and the lyre are needed in the inventory to do this. This can only be done once per day.

The cells in the last three columns show the number of Lyre teleports per offering on top, and the relative cost per charge in the bottom of the cell.

These options become more useful upon completion of the quest Love Story and the ability to use chipped house teleport tablets, which are a more convenient teleport to Rellekka. As well as that, there is a nearby lodestone in the Fremennik Province to the east of Rellekka.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

Audio options icon.png
Playing the lyre
  • When the lyre first came into Runescape, if you teleported near the West Ardougne doors, you would lose connection from the server.
  • If you have reached a skill to level 99 and you play the lyre during The Fremennik Trials you sing about it. If you have completed Dragon Slayer your character may sing about that.
  • When unenchanted and you try and play the lyre, your character states "I wouldn't know how to start playing this!". However, when you play the enchanted lyre, your character seems to know how to play. This may be because the lyre is enchanted and can be played by anyone.
  • Raw great white shark, introduced in the player-owned aquarium update, cannot be used to recharge the enchanted lyre.
