Oo'glog is an Ogress city and spa that plays an important part in the As a First Resort quest. The bank and shops are not available until starting the quest, and the spas, which are the main attraction of the city, are a reward after completing the quest.
Oo'glog lies just south of the Feldip Hunter area, a popular destination for hunters and explorers alike. The most common travel hub near Oo'glog is Yanille, which lies beyond the ogre capital of Gu'Tanoth, the dangerous Feldip Hills, and the jungle itself. The sea borders the eastern edge of Oo'glog and the jungle to the west.

Getting there[edit | edit source]
- The quickest way to reach Oo'glog is to use the Master archaeologist's outfit to teleport to Chief Tess (requires 99 Archaeology)
- Teleport to the Oo'glog lodestone to arrive north outside its walls
- Use the 'Chipped' Camelot teleport after Evil Dave's Big Day Out to reach Catherby docks and arrive directly inside via Charter ship, requires completion of As a First Resort. The charter trip costs up to 5,000 coins depending upon the port of departure. The price can be halved twice if the player has done the Cabin Fever quest and is wearing a Ring of charos (a).
- Players with 39 Hunter and Volcanic trapper outfit may use the bird snaring option to teleport to Wimpy bird hunting area, just outside the entrance of Oo'glog.
- The Eagle transport system can be used to reach the jungle hunter area. Players with 29 Agility may also use the shortcut above the Mud bath to avoid the various aggressive creatures near the west entrance.
- Another way for players with 57 Summoning is using a Spirit Larupia to teleport to the Feldip Hills hunter area just north of Oo'glog.
- Another method is to use a Spirit tree, a Ring of duelling, or the South Feldip Hills Teleport in the regular spellbook to teleport to the former location of the Mobilising Armies Command centre and run to Oo'glog from there. There are many medium-level monsters between the centre and Oo'glog, but Protect from Melee can be used to avoid all damage with prayer points then being recharged at the spa's sulphur spring.
- Another way is to use the Archaeology fast travel table in the Archaeology Campus east of Varrock and teleport to the Warforge (requires 76 Archaeology) and travel east to reach Oo'glog
History[edit | edit source]
Early History[edit | edit source]
The ogresses have made their homes in southern Feldip Hills for thousands of years, having made a living for themselves by hunting the local animals with special bait and traps. The town itself is also full of special springs that the ogresses have generally used to maintain their lifestyle. Although not certain, it is assumed female ogre population scare the the male ogres, forcing them to move north. In this way, the town is left alone to the ogresses.
Ogresses are known to be more powerful than the ogres themselves; coupled with the ogres' brutish strength and behaviour, this meant that very few outsiders came to Oo'glog at all, despite the ogresses' tolerance of outsiders.
Becoming a Spa Resort[edit | edit source]
In the year 169 of the Fifth Age, a human entrepreneur, Balnea, discovered Oo'glog and its unusual waters. Realizing the potential of a booming business in this area, she immediately spoke to the city's leader, Chief Tess, and requested she assist in the endeavor. Tess agreed, mainly for the "shinies", but also to make Balnea stop talking, as her words were confusing to the chieftain. A system was set up, but it did not meet Balnea's expectations, as the ogresses were unable to understand Balnea's words.
A human adventurer soon arrived at the strange town and met with Chief Tess, who asked them to help fulfil the bossy human's requests. The adventurer was able to set up a system satisfactory to both Balnea and Tess' expectations, and the spa soon opened for business.
The business was a success, with many paying for the spa's exclusive services, much to Balnea and Tess' delight.
Features[edit | edit source]
Spa facilities[edit | edit source]
There are several spas or baths in Oo'glog. From west to east, these are:
|Bandos pool||Strange, copper-infused waters.||You jump into the copper infused waters.|
You feel the favour of Bandos wash over you.
|The Bandos pool will mark players as followers of Bandos and none of his followers will attack them in God Wars Dungeon.|
|Sulphur spring||Smells like rotten eggs.||You jump into the bubbling, sulphurous waters.|
You feel serene after your rest. Your Prayer points have been restored.
|The sulphur spring temporarily boosts Prayer by about 10% of a player's level as it restores Prayer points. This was the highest Prayer bonus given by any altar in RuneScape, but was surpassed in December 2009 by the Senntisten Altar.|
|Salt-water spring||Bubbling water and salt of the earth.||You jump into the limpid, salty waters.|
You feel energised and hastened after your relaxing soak.
|The salt-water spring allows for unlimited run energy by restoring run energy to 100% every two ticks for a limited amount of time. Players get an in-game message when the effect has worn off.
It lasts a random duration between 9 and 24 minutes, which is re-rolled by simply entering the spring again. Potential durations given are 9, 12, 15, 18, 21 and 24 minutes(3-minute increments). Agility level has no known effect.
|Thermal bath||Ever been in hot water before?||You jump into the warm, relaxing thermal bath.|
You feel restored and invigorated.
|The thermal bath heals the player, cures poison, and applies poison immunity for around 14 minutes. For one hour, the bath boosts the player's maximum life points cap by +3 per Constitution level, for a maximum of +297 at level 99. This stacks additively with the life point boosts from bonfires, Fortitude, and life point boosting equipment.|
|Mud bath||Mud, mud, glorious mud.||You jump into the pit of thick, squelching mud.
After a bath in such luxuriant mud, you feel your Hunter skills are extra keen.
|The mud bath boosts players' Hunter level by 10% rounded down (making +4 the minimum for players with the minimum hunter level), making them more likely to catch hunter creatures. This boost will not stack with the boost from drinking a Hunter potion.|
Temporary effects wear off over the course of a few minutes, but these often last long enough to give the player significant advantages for a while. Players may use the spas even if they have familiars summoned. When the player enters the spa, the familiar goes to the spiritual plane but returns immediately when the player leaves the spa. However pets are forbidden. Attempting to enter the spa with a pet summoned will result in dialogue from one the city's inhabitants telling you it isn't allowed, and a pop up message instructing you to dismiss it first.
The ogre flask allows the player to hold six doses of one of the spa's waters to be used elsewhere in a pinch.
Bank[edit | edit source]
There is a bank in the central area of the city. Many players store items gained from Hunting due to the nearby hunting grounds, therefore making it an alternative to banks at Yanille or Castle Wars. The bank is usable just after starting As a First Resort – full completion of the quest is not required.
Shops[edit | edit source]
There are three shops in Oo'glog. The shops are usable after completing the As a First Resort quest.
General store[edit | edit source]
Meat shop[edit | edit source]
Salon[edit | edit source]
The facial looks like a large hand print over your face, and crumbles away when removed.
Resources[edit | edit source]
Woodcutting[edit | edit source]
Red Sandstone mining rock[edit | edit source]
Though not within Oo'glog, a red sandstone rock is just north of Oo'glog. This is located northeast of the thermal spa and northwest of both the mud bath and the level 29 agility shortcut (rock passage). To mine it, you need level 81 Mining (you do not need to do the As a First Resort quest in order to mine red sandstone). Mining red sandstone yields 70 mining experience per rock. Only 50 red sandstone can be mined per day at this location.
Potion flasks[edit | edit source]
A potion flask is a container that can hold 6 doses of a potion, two more than a vial.
A Robust glass machine can be found in the city after completion of As a First Resort, with the dwarf Rutmir Arnhold next to the machine. Players must first ask for permission in order to use the machine. While a second machine can be found in the Ithell district of Prifddinas, it also requires the completion of Plague's End (along with As a First Resort) in order to use.
Flask Decanting[edit | edit source]
With completion of As a First Resort, the dwarf Teplin Macagan can be found outside the bank, offering flask decanting services. He does not charge for his services; players just need to have flasks ready if they wish to decant from flask to flask or potion to flask.
Hunter facilities[edit | edit source]
Near the southern wall of the city several animals can be hunted for:
Chief Tess states that as they have been living in the area for ages, the animals are wary of any traps that are placed, and that in order to hunt them, they must be lured to them with their favourite smell from a specific flower. Each animal is attracted to a specific smell, and will turn "aggressive" if the wrong smell is used, at which they damage the player for small damage instead. There are various flowers unique to the area which can be picked around the city.
