The Jail!

The jail is at the south-west point of the port. It is home to Wormbrain, a goblin who is involved in the Dragon Slayer quest as well as two notable NPCs and former random event characters, Cap'n Hand and Rick Turpentine.

Farm[edit | edit source]

Located between Port Sarim and Falador, the farm has chickens, cows, and a cabbage field. Two eggs can be found in the chicken coop and a sink can be found on the east side of the farm. Members can access a farming shop here and use the loom in the south-east room. There are pigs and piglets on the farm, though they can not be attacked.

Betty's Magic Emporium can be found on the north-western part of the port. Betty runs the store and sells magic items. Players can purchase runes, eyes of newt, and blue and black wizard hats.

In recent times, running wizard hats has become popular, because they are worth nearly 100 times as much at the Grand Exchange as they are here.

Grum's Gold Exchange[edit | edit source]

Grum's Gold Exchange is located directly south of Betty's Magic Emporium. Grum runs the store and sells various jewellery. Players can purchase rings, necklaces, and strung amulets. The store is stocked only by other players selling their jewellery.

Brian's Battleaxe Bazaar[edit | edit source]

Brian's Battleaxe Bazaar is located east of Grum's Gold Exchange. Brian runs the store and sells battleaxes.

Players can purchase battleaxes from bronze to adamant, including the rare black.

Players can purchase all free-to-play fishing equipment here: fishing bait, feathers, and raw fish from shrimps all the way to swordfish.

On the north wall of the store respawns a white apron. Fishing poles and Lobster traps are also common occurrences.

Wydin's Food Store[edit | edit source]

Wydin's Food Store is located directly south of Gerrant's Fishy Business. The store is owned by Wydin and sells various items of fresh food.

The store plays an important part in the Pirate's Treasure quest. Players can also be hired as a worker for Wydin once they reach a certain point on the quest. Once they are hired, they can receive free food. If you ask him what he recommends he will tell you about bananas.

The Rusty Anchor Inn[edit | edit source]

Outside of The Rusty Anchor Inn.

The Rusty Anchor Inn is located east of Brian's Battleaxe Bazaar. The inn is owned by the bartender, and sells beer for 2 coins. Due to an update, the musician located in the bar is just like regular musicians (except for the bug, described below in the trivia section). The Inn also plays a small part in the A Void Dance quest, whereby several patrons, and even the barkeep are under the draining effect of the strange goo, located in the basement of the inn.

The port[edit | edit source]

North dock[edit | edit source]

Members can travel to Entrana from here. The monks will not allow player to carry weapons or armour, though it is possible to import materials to fletch a bow and arrows or to craft leather armour. Runes are also allowed.

West dock[edit | edit source]

All players can travel to Karamja from this dock, for a price of 30 coins. There is a right-click option on any of the sailors, to "Pay fare" and travel without any additional dialogue. This price will be reduced if wearing Karamja gloves, or the trip will be free after asking, while wearing the ring of charos (a). Both items are members only.

Centre dock[edit | edit source]

  • The Lady Lumbridge, a ship in need of repair, is moored here. She features in the Dragon Slayer quest. After the quest the original owner reclaims it and paints over the name with paint, denying that it was once the player's.
  • The Void Knights dock can be found on the centre pier. Talk to the squire to go to the Void Knights' Outpost where members can play the minigames Pest Control or Conquest.

South dock[edit | edit source]

Trader Stan and crew are here. They have many things to trade with any adventurer, including the tyras helm. They will also allow members to use the charter ships to travel to many other ports.

Submarine[edit | edit source]

One of the submarines can be found on Port Sarim. It is one of the teasers of the quest, Hunt for Red Raktuber.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Port Sarim has been in Gielinor since DeviousMUD.

Clicking "Talk to" will result in your character sitting down and listening, while "Listen to" will begin talking to the character you clicked "Talk to". This has since been fixed.
  • The cemetery outside Port Sarim refers to several of Shakespeare's works, Including references to Ophelia, Horatio from Hamlet, etc.
  • Port Sarim was founded on roughly the same area that Port Lina, a settlement from the Fourth Age, had previously existed on.[1]
