Silvarea

From Old School RuneScape Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Silvarea is a small area that separates Varrock and Morytania, consisting of a path and two mountain ranges that surround it on both sides. It's situated north of the Digsite and slightly north-east of Varrock, east of the Saradomin statue and on the other side of a gate.

Despite being the name of the actual area, Silvarea has become somewhat synonymous with Paterdomus, the Saradominist temple that dominates its eastern side.

History[edit | edit source]

The area played a major role in the 100 Years War during the Fourth Age, where Lord Lowerniel Vergidiyad Drakan attempted to conquer Misthalin from the then sparse human settlements that existed in the area, the largest being Avarrocka (now Varrock) in the north. After 100 years of conflict, the Seven Priestly Warriors emerged and, ultimately, pushed the hordes of Morytania away from Misthalin and behind the River Salve.

After this victory, they blessed the river in the name of Saradomin, this blessing acting as a defensive barrier against the inhabitants of Morytania, ensuring they would never cross it. Paterdomus temple was built at the edge of Silvarea and the River Salve after the end of the war, honouring the seven.

Notable features[edit | edit source]

Paterdomus Temple[edit | edit source]

Paterdomus is by far the most relevant and known aspect of Silvarea, to the point of it having become synonymous with the region itself. It's located to the far east right on the River Salve.

Odd Old Man[edit | edit source]

The Odd Old Man and his museum of unique collectables can be found at the end of the northern central path, beyond the limestone quarry.

Limestone quarry[edit | edit source]

A limestone quarry can be found half way up the northern central path.

Bats[edit | edit source]

The area is occupied by a scattering of bats from beginning to end, making it a popular location for players to go when assigned them by a Slayer Master.
