A Maid is a servant that players with at least level 25 Construction can hire to do various services in their player-owned house. The maid has the second lowest wage at 1,000 coins. Players must pay her the wage every eight uses of her services. The maid has inventory space for 10 items and a trip time of 30 seconds.

If asked to serve dinner, she will provide stew for players seated at a table in a dining room.

Hiring[edit | edit source]

Players can hire the maid at the Servants' Guild, which is located north of the marketplace in East Ardougne. All five servants wander inside the building except for the servant the player has hired. Before hiring any servant, the player must meet three requirements:

  • The player must have the required Construction level.
  • The player's house must have at least two bedrooms with beds constructed in each one. If one of the beds is removed, then the servant will not become present again until the bed is rebuilt and the player exits and re-enters the house.
  • The player must not have a servant already hired.

If the player wants to fire or switch servants, the player must fire their current servant by either talking to them in the player's house, or by talking to the Chief servant at the Servants' Guild.[1]

Services[edit | edit source]

The services provided by servants can be cosmetic or vital resources for training Construction efficiently. All of the servants have the same basic services, but the main difference is that the higher-level servants have larger inventories and quicker response times. The maid can:

  • Be summoned via the bell-pull in the dining room or the Call Butler button on the House Options interface
  • Follow the player like a pet if there are still items to claim from them, even in building mode
  • Greet visiting players as they enter the house
  • Lead visiting players to the owner if the owner is in another room
  • Lead visiting players outside
  • Serve tea to the owner
  • Serve stew to the owner and the visiting players provided the player has a dining room with a table and a kitchen with the necessary supplies
  • Serve drinks from the barrel to the owner and the visiting players
  • Fetch building materials from the bank:
  • Take items to the bank
  • Un-note noted items (excluding bones), taking the same amount of time as fetching from the bank

The cook, butler, and demon butler can also take logs to the sawmill for conversion into planks. Noted logs can be used, but the servant must first un-note them and upon returning to the player with the un-noted logs, they'll be automatically deposited to the player's inventory, the player has the option of having the servant take them to the sawmill if the player talks to the servant again.

Players may now fire their servants by talking to the chief servant in Ardougne.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • She is agoraphobic, most apparent by her refusal to go to the sawmill.
  • She seems to be extremely afraid of making a mistake, though she is much nicer than the Cook.

The chief there can let you fire your existing servant by talking to him. Hopefully that'll cover most of what you need."
