Lumbridge Castle is a large castle located in Lumbridge and home of Duke Horacio. The courtyard enclosed by the outer walls features two decorative fountains and two statues, one of an ancient king and one of an ancient hero. A short flight of three steps joins this to the castle's front entrance. Another entrance is behind the castle.
It is a popular location as many new players are here, as they spawn here after completing Tutorial Island. Players also respawn here after death, though players have the option to respawn in Edgeville by speaking to the Witch in the Edgeville jail cell or in the Ferox Enclave by speaking to Ferox and members have the option to either respawn here or in Falador after completing Recruitment Drive, or lastly, in Camelot after completing Knight Waves Training Grounds.
Ground floor[edit | edit source]
The ground floor is home to various water sources, a Cooking range, various decorations such as a long table and many portraits, and two quests: Cook's Assistant and Recipe for Disaster. In order to use the range, players must finish Cook's Assistant. A single mind rune spawn can be found by the stairs on the southern side of the castle.
The Cook's Assistant and Recipe for Disaster quests can be started here by talking to the Cook in the kitchen on the main floor. A trapdoor in the kitchen leads down to a cellar containing bucket and knife spawns, and an entrance to the Dorgeshuun Mines.
First floor[edit | edit source]
The First floor is where Duke Horacio's bedroom is and where he spends much of his time. Players can start the Rune Mysteries quest by speaking with him. He also provides a free Anti-dragon shield to any player who has started the Dragon Slayer I quest. Sigmund, his advisor, is the starting point of The Lost Tribe. There is a Spinning wheel in the room next to Duke Horacio and the Crafting tutor. The spinning wheel is one of the most popular (most used) spinning wheels in RuneScape due to its proximity to the second floor bank.
Second floor[edit | edit source]
Cellar[edit | edit source]
Before either the Recipe for Disaster or The Lost Tribe quests, this floor had no use except a respawn for a cabbage, some boots and other practically useless items. After the Recipe for Disaster quest, players will have access to a bank and 2 stores down here. Additionally, after the Lost Tribe quest, players get direct access to the Lumbridge Swamp Caves. The cellar can be accessed by climbing down a ladder located in Lumbridge Castle's kitchen.
Treasure Trails[edit | edit source]
- Searching a crate in the cellar is the solution to a hard cryptic clue: You will need to under-cook to solve this one.
