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. The teleport has become less useful due to the Rellekka house portal (and Rellekka tablet) as well as the Fremennik lodestone, but can be used for faster access to a number of clues.

With the update on 8 February 2021, 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.

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

There are three types of fish that the player may offer: raw shark, raw manta ray, and raw sea turtle. However, if the player equips 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.

  • Completing the easy Fremennik achievements will cause fish to give an extra 20 charges.
  • Remotely charging the enchanted lyre with the Fremennik sea boots gives, respectively, 10, 20, and 30 charges for the fish above.

Teleport Locations[edit | edit source]

The lyre has several teleport destinations. Players can right-click "Configure" their lyre to change the quick-teleport destination.

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.

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.
