Advanced data

Tarn's Lair is located in south-western Morytania. Its entrance is located in the Abandoned Mine. It is a complex dungeon with lots of the undead, and features a miniquest to kill Tarn Razorlor called Lair of Tarn Razorlor. Completion of the miniquest unlocks the ability to enchant a Salve amulet and turn it into a Salve amulet (e).

Players cannot set up a dwarf multicannon within the lair. If players attempt to do so, a chatbox message will state This temple is ancient and would probably collapse if you started firing a cannon.

Requirements[edit | edit source]

Optional[edit | edit source]

The entrance to Tarn's temple, blocked by a boulder.
  • Level Prayer 43 Prayer to use Protect from Melee.
  • 100 coins required each time to use the banker Odovacar.
  • Bringing food and prayer potions is highly recommended, especially for players entering the dungeon for the first time. Multiple traps and monsters that can deal constant damage are scattered throughout the lair.
  • Gear with high Prayer bonus.

Travel[edit | edit source]

The lair is found inside the Abandoned Mine and requires a Salve amulet to enter.

  • The fastest way to get to Tarn is to teleport to Tarn's Lair via a Slayer ring. This will bring you directly outside of the room with Tarn.
  • The fastest way to get to the entrance through the Abandoned Mine is using the Morytania legs 3 to teleport to Burgh de Rott and hop over the Agility shortcut west of the town.

To enter Tarn's Lair, climb over the mine cart just south of the Zealot (featured in the Haunted Mine quest), go through the entrance of the Abandoned Mine, and then head north of the entrance.

Map[edit | edit source]

Referring back to the map above, note the letters that identify the various doors and passages.

The route to reach Tarn Razorlor is D-S-T-U.

The route to reach the spawn point of Razorlor's toad batta is C-K, which is used in a step for an elite clue scroll. The fastest route is through A and then using a protruding wall trap to get pushed down into the hole on the east side as you exit, taking you to the small room just east of the toad batta.

Before you go off into this dangerous dungeon, there are things you need to know. This lair is very dangerous if not geared properly, and is guarded by various monsters and traps.

Directions[edit | edit source]

Follow this route to reach Tarn, but beware of traps!

There are numerous traps, monsters and passages within the lair.

Note: It is recommended that you have Auto Retaliate OFF whilst in the lair to avoid running back into traps or floor spikes if a monster is attacking you.

Trap/Feature Failure result Notes
Floor trap You will be hit 7-8 hitpoints if you run over a floor trap They are fairly obvious, having a big X across the floor tile. Right-click and search floor to disarm the trap. Another simple alternative is to just carefully walk around them.
Wall trap You will be hit 7-10 hitpoints if you run past a wall trap These are harder to see, but generally only occur in narrow passages, so check for them when you're in a narrow passage.
Log trap You will be hit 15-20 hitpoints by a log trap, and knocked to a level below. Log traps only occur on jumps to pillars. There is sometimes (but not always) a right-click Search floor which will disable the log trap near one of the walls.
Receding walls You will be pushed by the walls, and knocked to a level below. Occurs sometimes on slim ledges. Just wait till the trap moves back into the walls and run past it.
Passage N/A Passages lead to new areas in the lair. Following the more ornate doors (especially with water-features) will eventually lead you to Tarn Razorlor.

Bank[edit | edit source]

From the entrance, travel as far east as you can and then north. It will cost 100 coins each time you use the bank. Some of the undead in the lair drop coins.
