See features section below

The Rogues' Castle is a castle located in levels 50-54 Wilderness. It is occupied by several rogues, enforcers and captains.

As the main door remains locked at all times, players must use a side entrance to get into the castle. The music track Regal is unlocked near the castle.

The castle can be quickly reached by using the Wilderness obelisk which is located just southeast of the building. It is surrounded by an outer wall and several spiked barricades.

Players should be wary when approaching the castle as while the occupiers are non-hostile, the Chaos Elemental, a tough boss, patrols the area.

By speaking to Vala near Edgeville you can choose to either Opt In or Out of PvP preventing player killers from attacking you. If you are Opted In a skull will appear above your head every time you enter the Wilderness.

This location almost has no use in free-to-play.

Getting there[edit | edit source]

Features[edit | edit source]

The castle has four floors, with the upper two floors being towers.

The ground floor[UK]1st floor[US], there is a range, three gold ore spawns, and four infinitely lootable chests containing death runes, blood runes, and coins(the rates are low). Rogues on ground floor[UK]1st floor[US] will become aggressive when you fail pickpocketing them.

The 1st floor[UK]2nd floor[US] has another gold ore, as well a bronze square shield spawn, three chests you can loot with the Thieving skill, and three safecracking safes that respawn after 10 minutes.

The 3rd floor[UK]4th floor[US] contains another gold ore and an iron dagger spawn.

There is a weak portal to the Spirit Realm, which when activated grants 15,000 Thieving experience during the first visit.

In the spirit version of the Rogues' Castle, players can lock the cell door, which unlocks it in the real version of the castle and allows players to talk to the trapped rogue inside.

Doing so will allow him to escape to Varrock and is a requirement for the master quest cape.

Miniquests and activities[edit | edit source]

The castle is one of the possible spawn points of Viggora during The Curse of Zaros miniquest.

Additionally, the rogues can be pickpocketed for flame fragments during the Lost Her Marbles miniquest. It is also the location of a Treasure Trails coordinate clue.

Surrounding area[edit | edit source]

There is a deposit of columnar basalt along the shore to the north of the castle. The only other known deposit is near the Lighthouse.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

The portal for players stuck in jail to use to escape
  • When the Wilderness was updated, people got stuck in the jail cell, so a portal was placed to allow them to get out.
  • The hexagonal blocks found north of the castle closely resemble the columnar basalt formations of the Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland, which were formed through volcanic activity around 40 million years ago. The blocks ingame are positioned wrongly, however, as the hexagonal blocks stand in a square pattern with free space between them while the real basalt formations stand in a hexagonal pattern with no free space between them.
