Getting there[edit | edit source]
- Players can travel to Goshima by talking to Quartermaster Gully located in Port Sarim, or Menaphos, after the player has completed the quest Impressing the Locals.
- Goshima teleport - Players may break this teletab to teleport to the druid colony on Goshima. It can be purchased at Boni's Waiko Reward Shop for 5 chimes.
Notable features[edit | edit source]
- A dead moai, that releases negative energy springs, which when harvested at 90 Divination, gives negative energy and 33.5 experience per harvest. If you have positive energy (harvestable at 90 Divination) in your inventory, the negative and positive energy will combine and create ancestral energy.
- 4 mushroom clusters
- Weather (rain)
- 2 Rumberry bushes
- Locked town of Gongdung where the azure key can be found (access requires partial completion of Curse of the Black Stone)
Personalities[edit | edit source]
- Malignant entity, which absorbs the player's prayer points, run energy, and eventually life points. Simply move away from it to avoid this. Players can rid the island of the entity through completion of the miniquest Final Destination.
- Madame Shih, also known as the Jade Spider, is a powerful pirate warlord. During the Curse of the Black Stone quest, going to Goshima brings up a popup box - Search for the Jade Spider?

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The destroyed druid colony is the same colony player helps druids to establish in the Player-owned port minigame voyage, A New Home.
- Gongdung may be a reference to Guangdong, the richest province in China that is also the country's largest importer and exporter of goods.
- When translated in Japanese (五島 goshima), Goshima means 'five island'.
- The symbol of the Void Knights may be seen in Gongdung.
- One of the corpses lying on the ground has the examine text "He's dead, Jim". This is a reference to Star Trek.
- One of the corpses lying on the ground has the examine text "Funny. She doesn't look druish". This is a reference to Spaceballs.
- Dispelling a Jiangshi is supposed to cure any beings afflicted by its curse. While this worked on Lookout Ekahi, it does not work on the undead pekins found on Goshima, who remain undead even after Final Destination is completed. This could be an oversight, or perhaps their affliction is from a different source.
