Lava Maze

The Lava Maze is a maze located deep in the Wilderness, around level 40-45. In the entrance and partway through the maze, there are spiderwebs that must be cut with a slash weapon or a knife. It was previously possible for players to be trapped inside the maze if they did not have a slash weapon to cut spider webs, but having the tool belt with a knife will always allow you to cut through webs, even without a slash weapon or knife in your inventory.

The maze can only be entered from the south-west. The path forks twice when attempting to reach the centre of the maze; players must go down the left path, and then the right path, as demonstrated on the map. Some items and coins spawn throughout the maze. A gold necklace and steel platebody spawn at the centre near the muddy chest. A muddy key is required to open the chest, which contains moderate level treasure.

There is also a single Fishing spot where players can catch lava eels, the only other place being in Taverley Dungeon. The winding paths of the mine are infested with numerous hellhounds, with a few Ripper Demons at the centre of the maze and a ladder leading downstairs to the Lava Maze Dungeon. There is another entrance at the western edges of the maze; however, this part is not connected with the remaining area at all and has numerous greater demon berserkers and ash lords outside, along with the banker Darren. This section contains the lever for accessing the King Black Dragon's Lair.

To the north of the maze is a phasmatite mine, however, parts of the mine are near some hydrix dragons. To the southwest is the hobgoblin mine and lava strykewyrms.

A penguin spy from Penguin Hide and Seek occasionally appears in the maze. At these times, the maze can often be run in relative safety on World 60, one of the official Penguin Hide and Seek worlds. However, it is also possible at times to spy a penguin from the outside edge, assuming the penguin wanders close enough.

Getting there[edit | edit source]

Three Wilderness obelisks provide a fairly fast way to reach the maze:

  • The obelisk in level 44 Wilderness is the closest, being a short distance to the northwest
  • The obelisk in level 35 Wilderness is a bit further, towards the southeast from the maze entrance.
  • The obelisk in level 27 Wilderness is the furthest towards the south, but is still practical.

Players can also teleport to the Lava Maze by way of a lava titan's special ability.

Players can also ride a canoe to the Wilderness canoe landing, arriving near the level 35 Wilderness Obelisk.

A Wilderness sword 1 or higher can teleport players to the Wilderness herb patch, then walk west to the Lava Maze.

From the Wilderness Lodestone, players should run west then north, around the edge of the Wilderness Crater and up to the Lava Maze.
