Al Kharid is a city in the north of the Kharidian Desert. It is the only desert city open to non-members, and players in the city do not suffer from the desert effect. Al Kharid is ruled by the Emir, although the vast majority of the work has been taken over by Chancellor Hassan since the Emir's son was kidnapped.

This city is particularly useful to powerminers because of the nearby Mining area, which contains tin, copper, iron, silver, gold, mithril, adamantite, and coal rocks.

Travel[edit | edit source]

Border Guards at the Al Kharid gate.

Al Kharid contains the closest bank to a range as well as two reasonably close fishing spots. It also houses a tanner, Ellis. In free-to-play RuneScape, Al Kharid's furnace is the second-closest to a bank, after Edgeville's furnace.

Bank[edit | edit source]

Al Kharid's bank is to the south-west of the city. The bank is populated largely by craftsmen, smiths and chefs, largely due to the proximity of the tanner, range and furnace. In the free worlds, it often has many players buying and selling cowhides.

Shops[edit | edit source]

Zeke's Superior Scimitars[edit | edit source]

The scimitar shop is north-east of the bank.


You can also ask for a dragon scimitar. If you do this, Zeke makes several puns regarding the Monkey Madness I quest required to buy a dragon scimitar: "The banana-brained nitwits who make them would never sell any to me. Seriously, you'll be a monkey's uncle before you hold a Dragon Scimitar."

Dommik's Crafting Store.[edit | edit source]

The Crafting store is north-east of the palace.


Al Kharid General Store[edit | edit source]

The general store is east of the palace.


The shop is also often well-stocked with recently crafted leather armour.

Louie's Armoured Legs Bazaar[edit | edit source]

The plateleg store is south of the general store, east of the palace.


Ranael's Super Skirt Store[edit | edit source]

The plateskirt store is east of the palace.


This shop stocks identical merchandise to Louie's Armoured Legs Bazaar, except the armour is plateskirts, not platelegs.

Kebab shop[edit | edit source]

The kebab shop is at the range directly north of the bank, a kebab can be bought for 1 coin here. Karim is the kebab seller.

Gem Trader[edit | edit source]

The Gem Trader is to the north of Al Kharid, east of the gate to Lumbridge.


Silk trader[edit | edit source]

The silk trader near the scimitar shop is a quick and easy way for newer members to gain small amounts of money. If the player is prepared to click through a lengthy dialogue, they can buy silk cheaply (3 coins) which can be sold for a profit at a general store other than the one in Al Kharid.

Note: If you refuse at the first time, he'll lower the price to 2 coins.

Ali's Discount Wares.[edit | edit source]

Ali Morrisane is found east of the gem trader to the north-east of the city near the blue star quest icon Quest points . He sells various items, and once The Feud is completed, he will open various other shops if you set up merchanting opportunities for him.
