Captain Ned is an old sailor who lives in a small house in eastern Draynor Village. He plays a part in the Dragon Slayer I and Prince Ali Rescue quests. Players can bring him 15 coins or four balls of wool to make a rope. Alternatively, he sells rope at his store, Ned's Handmade Rope.
After The Fremennik Isles, players who buy rope from him will notice that his rope seems funny, and Ned will confess that he actually gets the ropes from Neitiznot by trading balls of wool and doesn't actually make them himself. He will give the player another rope for free in exchange for them keeping quiet about it.
- Ned is the solution to the easy cryptic clue: Speak to Ned in Draynor Village.
After completion of The Fremennik Isles quest, players will receive a 10% discount from Ned's shop.
