A POH portal

The POH portal, commonly referred to as a house portal, is the entrance to a player-owned house (POH), the main feature of the Construction skill. House Advertisements are also found next to these portals, in which players can check whether advertised houses contain frequently used features.

To use the portal, left-click on the portal and then choose one of the four presented options:

  • Enter your own house (only works if your house is in the same location as the portal)
  • Enter your own house in building mode (only works if your house is in the same location as the portal)
  • Go to another player's house (only works if their house is in the same location as the portal, they are on the same world, they are in their house, and they have private chat set so that you can message them)
  • Take no action

Travelling to house portals[edit | edit source]

The most basic way to get to a house is by walking to the portal that is in the location of the house. At level 40 Magic, players can use the Teleport to House spell to teleport directly into the player's own house. Using a house teleport tablet is another option that only uses one inventory space and does not require a Magic level to use. In the house options screen, players can choose whether the house teleports land the player in the house itself or outside the portal.

House portal locations[edit | edit source]

Estate agents can move a player's house from its starter location in Rimmington to any of the other house portal locations identified by the portal House portal icon.png icon on the map. These locations are Rimmington, Taverley, Pollnivneach, Hosidius, Rellekka, Brimhaven, Yanille, and Prifddinas. Each location requires a certain Construction level, and the estate agent charges a fee for each move. The details are shown in the table below.

Additional house location info[edit | edit source]

Location Advantages Disadvantages Skill Usage
Rimmington
  • Since the NPC Phials was added into the general store to un-note your items (for a fee), Rimmington is now the best location for a Gilded altar.
  • There are 2 oak trees only steps away from the portal, and 4 yew trees just west of the portal. Willows can be found just south of Rimmington.
  • The nearby mine has 2 clay rocks on the far east side.
  • Only minutes away from Port Sarim, and thus most of RuneScape and Pest Control.
  • There is a bush patch right next to the house portal.
  • Bank is not far away via boat to Corsair Cove (requires completion of Corsair Curse quest.)
  • Relatively far from a bank if Corsair Curse not completed.
Taverley
  • Far fewer nearby resources compared to Rimmington.
  • Nearest bank is the Rogues' Den.
Pollnivneach
Hosidius Gaining Hosidius Favor - Great Kourend - Architectural Alliance

Gaining Lovakengj Favor

Farming

Thieving

Woodcutting

Combat

Construction

  • Woodcutting guild is just South West of portal, across log, then slightly North West.

Other

  • Fairly remote from Main area of Runescape
  • Other locations may be better suited
Rellekka
  • You will need many house teleport tablets to use Rellekka effectively, as there is no bank in town.
Brimhaven
Yanille
  • Takes a long time to reach this location without teleports.
Prifddinas

The city is also home to several means of training mid to high-level skills, many of which can provide Crystal Shards.

  • Requires the completion of Song of the Elves to access, meaning those who have not completed the quest cannot visit.
  • Those unfamiliar with the city can easily find themselves getting lost, unable to find the many, spaced out features.
