The Northern Wilderness Volcano (marked as Volcano on the map) is a tall volcano located in the north-easternmost section of the Wilderness. It is neither involved nor mentioned in any content. The volcano can be climbed by passing several shortcuts, starting with the stepping stone followed by three ledges. An additional ledge leads to a dead end.

As a part of the Wilderness threat system, player can be targeted by projectiles from the volcano, dealing damage which can be reduced by using the correct prayers. However those projectiles cannot be seen visually leaving the volcano and simply appear near the player. They are communicated by the following messages:

  • You sense the magical embers of the volcano, hurtling towards you. for Magic damage projectile, along with a flaming ball.
  • You sense a shard of the volcano, shooting towards you like an arrow. for Ranged damage projectile, along with a green projectile.

It is possible for a next clue or reward of Clue scroll (elite) to be here. The volcano can be used to flee from the Chaos Elemental that resides nearby to the west of the Rogues' Castle. The area around the north of the volcano reaches into level 60 Wilderness, the deepest anyone can go inside the Wilderness.

Getting there[edit | edit source]

  • Teleport to the entrance of the Dragonkin Laboratory via a boss portal and walk through the gate guarded by Sif. Go through the gate in the fence to the north.
  • Use the obelisk network to teleport to the obelisk located in level 51 Wilderness next to the Rogues' Castle and go north. Players can only specifically select an obelisk as a teleport destination after obtaining Wilderness sword 3, otherwise it is random.
  • For free players, they have to use the lever in Edgeville to teleport to the Deserted Keep, then go a long distance east.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • If you attempt to destroy a ring of kinship on the top of the Volcano, you are given a message that references The Lord of the Rings. It says: You find yourself unable to part with the ring.
  • There used to be a wooden bridge at the top of the volcano, which seemed to persist despite constant volcanic bombs and lava splashes, but it was removed when the Wilderness was graphically updated on 13 December 2011.
  • North of the volcano there used to be a broken ship with a small cannon on it, some broken barrels and a long-dead crew; however, these have no uses other than for scenery. This was removed when the Wilderness was graphically updated on 1 August 2022.
  • Before the rework on 1 August 2022 the volcano was lower and had three lava lakes on top, shooting out volcanic bombs constantly.
