The VIP area

The VIP skilling area is a small section of the Imperial district within Menaphos. It is unlocked and accessible at Tier 7 overall reputation.

Attempting to go through the VIP archway before reaching the required reputation makes a VIP area guard stop the player and say: "Where do you think you're going? You're not allowed in here!"

Skilling[edit | edit source]

The area contains four acadia trees; three mineral deposits; three fishing spots (for desert sole, catfish, and beltfish); and a bank chest. The resources in this area deplete at half the rate of outside resources.[1] For Acadia trees, this means that each tree produces twice the amount of logs. The mineral deposits do not collapse, and the fishing spots move half as often. All tier 8 skilling success rate increases work in the VIP area.[2]

Menaphos journal[edit | edit source]

The skilling locations can be used to discover certain items and creatures required for the Menaphos journal. Some of which are exclusively found in the VIP area. These discoveries are needed to complete Cats of Menaphos, Jewels of the Elid, and Insects of the Desert achievements. This would allow players to make significant progress towards obtaining the Sandy (title).

Exclusive[edit | edit source]

  • Hornless unicornfly: Found whilst woodcutting in the VIP skilling area.
  • Phenakite: Found while mining in the VIP skilling area.
  • Anukat can be found standing north-west of the bank chest.
