A player taking a magic carpet ride.

The Magic carpet is a transportation method in the Kharidian Desert. The magic carpet system is operated by Rug Merchants.

There are two major hubs from which the carpets travel - Shantay Pass and South Pollnivneach. Carpets can travel in both directions between destinations, but other carpet destinations will only travel to one of these two hubs.

The carpets require 200 coins to use, but this falls to 100 coins after doing the Rogue Trader miniquest (desert section - blackjack or clothes). With a ring of charos (a), you can reduce the price to 75 coins. (If the ring of charos (a) is used without completing The Feud quest, the price is 100 coins.)

After completing the hard Desert Diary, all magic carpet rides become free of charge.
