The Observatory is a complex mostly used during the Observatory Quest. It consists of four parts. The area was overrun by goblins, who have damaged the telescope, and players must fix it during the quest. The original bridge to the observatory has been destroyed, so you must go underground at the ruined buildings and through the Observatory Dungeon to get to it. Alternatively, players who have completed the Observatory Quest can use the grapple shortcut with 23 Agility, 24 Ranged, and 28 Strength. It should be noted that players who use this shortcut forfeit their mith grapple, but in doing so create a permanent shortcut.
- In an update on 22 March 2018, the examine text of the telescope was changed to a quote by Stephen Hawking to honour his memory - "Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet". Previously, the examine text was "Looking through it makes far off things seem closer."
