The TzHaar City is a city located underneath the volcano on Karamja. It is home to the TzHaar, a golem-like humanoid race. This is where the TzHaar Fight Pit and TzHaar Fight Cave activities can be played, as well as the only city that uses the Tokkul currency. The TokTz-Ket-Dill, The Elder Kiln, and Brink of Extinction quests also heavily feature the city. The city is also notably the one of the few sources of Onyx in the game (other than kingly impling jars, Nex, Kal'gerion demons and the Queen Black Dragon).
Getting there[edit | edit source]
- TokKul-Zo teleport directly to the Fight Cave, Fight Kiln, Fight Cauldron, Fight Pit, or city centre.
- Fairy ring blp is located near the Fight Cave.
- Amulet of glory teleport to Karamja, then run west from the banana plantation to the main entrance atop the Karamja Volcano.
- Karamja lodestone teleport, then run east from Brimhaven, through the members' gate, to the volcano.
Inhabitants[edit | edit source]
The TzHaar City features several different native inhabitants of the volcano, known as the TzHaar:
Name Combat level Occupation Attackable? TzHaar-Ket 86 Guards of the TzHaar race Yes TzHaar-Xil 86 Hunters TzHaar-Mej 86 Advisors; some are leaders of the city TzHaar-Hur 86 Craftsmen TzHaar-Hur-Lek N/A Runs the ore and gem shop No TzHaar-Hur-Tel Runs the weapons shop TzHaar-Hur-Roh Runs the rune shop TzHaar-Mej-Jal Guards the TzHaar Fight Cave. Banker. TzHaar-Mej-Kah Proprietor of the TzHaar Fight Pit. Banker. TzHaar-Hur-Zuh Banker TzHaar-Mej-Lor Librarian
None of the attackable TzHaar are aggressive. Be warned, the TzHaar-Mej and TzHaar-Hur may call for help from other TzHaar when attacked. All of the attackable TzHaar drop Tokkul, and occasionally they will drop various items that can be obtained from the weapons shop.
North of the Plaza there is a big door guarded by two TzHaar-Kets. When asked why players cannot pass, they are told that it is because the TzHaar citizens do not trust them enough to permit them further into the city yet. Even after completion of The Brink of Extinction, the player will be told that they cannot come in, as the inner city has streets full of lava, and they will not let the player in for fear of their skin burning off.
With the release of TokTz-Ket-Dill quest, players were able to access some certain areas of the city, such as the library and the mines. The TzHaar language and numbering system was also introduced to players through this quest.

- patch 22 June 2009 (Update):
- Graphically improved a small section of the TzHaar city area to fix its appearance in high and low detail modes.
- patch 25 February 2009 (Update):
- We've changed the way player stock prices are calculated at the TzHaar shops because a small number of people were taking advantage of the fact that TzHaar have little conception of how much human adventurers value gp.
