The Mage of Zamorak is a member of the Zamorak Magical Institute, and stands around the Southern Wilderness mining site and at the Altar of Zamorak in Varrock. He sells runes in his shop, Battle Runes, and teleports players into the Abyss (resulting in a drain of all Prayer points) once the Enter the Abyss miniquest has been completed.

He used to sell soul and astral runes, but now only sells air, water, earth, fire, mind, body, chaos, death and blood runes. Before completion of Enter the Abyss, body runes are available to the player to buy, however, once completed, there is an increase of stock.

It can be difficult to trade with him because he has so many skeletons standing near him that will attack the player. Overcoming this, the Mage of Zamorak is one of the cheapest sources of runes in RuneScape.

Many runecrafters use the Mage of Zamorak as a shortcut to their preferred altar, although this can be risky as many carry one or more valuable items that could be lost to player killers.

He will only talk to players if they speak to him in Varrock. He will refuse to speak with characters wearing any item representing another god than Zamorak, although he will still teleport players wearing items of another god.

Players may claim a small pouch from him if they lose one.

Treasure Trails[edit | edit source]

  • The Mage of Zamorak is the solution to the master cryptic clue: Where safe to speak, the man who offers the pouch of smallest size wishes to see your alignment. Wear three Zamorak-related items.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • If you ask him to teleport you to the Abyss, you say "Beam me up", a direct reference to Star Trek.
  • Whilst wearing a holy symbol, he will refuse to speak with the player until it is taken off.
