Rope detail.png

Rope has many uses in RuneScape. It is used in many quests and in the creation of certain items. It can be obtained from Ned in Draynor Village, by either bringing 4 ball of wool or paying 18 coins to him (15 if you go through dialogue), by visiting certain stores, or by spinning yak hair on a spinning wheel. They are also commonly dropped by muggers (particularly in the Blurite Cave near Thurgo), and it can also be found on the ground of Karamja's general store. It is also sold by Trader Crewmembers and Shantay (at the Shantay Pass in Al Kharid).

The easiest location would be Arhein in Catherby. A helpful place to get rope is in the Ardougne general store (helpful for those doing the Waterfall Quest and Plague City) where there is a stock of 20, but Martin Thwait's Lost and Found at Rogues' Den is a far better option since it stocks 50 and is very close to a bank. (although it requires 50 Thieving and 50 Agility to access his shop). Khazard General Store is also within close proximity of a bank.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Ned leads you to believe that he makes rope from wool. During The Fremennik Isles quest, however, you discover that Ned trades with the Fremennik in Neitiznot, exchanging the wool he receives for rope. The Fremennik are amused that you would believe sturdy rope could be made from something as flimsy as wool rather than tough yak hair.
  • After The Fremennik Isles quest, if you buy a rope from Ned, your character will notice that it smells strange, and if you finish through the dialogue, Ned will give you a second rope for free, as a payment for your silence. (Note: After you get the second rope, if you leave the dialogue by clicking elsewhere on the screen rather than ending the conversation through the dialogue, you can get the second free rope again and again.)
