Doomsayer chathead.png

The Doomsayer is found wandering around Lumbridge near the Lumbridge Guide prophesying doom to all who speak to him. He has a natural skill at sensing danger and he feels it is his duty to warn others of the potential hazards that await unsuspecting travellers. He does this by putting up warning signs in dangerous places, accompanied with a warning message. Whilst he calls himself the Doomsayer, he feels that his proper title is Danger Tutor.

Danger signs[edit | edit source]

The areas/events where the Doomsayer has placed warning signs are as follows:

Dagannoth Kings' Ladder Entering the Kings' lair.
Lumbridge Swamp Caves Rope Entering the cave without a lightsource.
Stronghold of Security Ladders Entering the cave.
Falador Mole Lair Entering the cave.
Dropped Items in Random Events Attempting to drop any item, then leave the Random Event after completing the event's tasks.
Player-Owned Houses Drop an item and turn on building mode.
Contact Dungeon Ladder Entering the Sophanem-Dungeon.
Icy Path Area Entering the Ice path and waiting a second or two.
H.A.M. tunnel from mill Entering the Lost Tribe tunnel tunnel without a lightsource.

These warning signs may be toggled on/off the seventh time they are seen by the player. A good way to be able to toggle them faster is to click the entrance to where one was going, and click "No" until the toggle appears. After that, the player may switch them on or off as they like.

Certain warnings cannot be reenabled, such as the Wilderness Lever.
