The Taverley Dungeon is one of the largest dungeons in Old School RuneScape. There are many monsters, ranging from low to high combat levels, getting stronger as players venture deeper into the dungeon. These include poisonous monsters, so bringing antipoison potions is advised if travelling through the parts of the dungeon that contain them. Taverley Dungeon is entirely single combat (although cannons can still attack multiple targets if the player is not in direct combat).

Location[edit | edit source]

The entrance to the dungeon is found south of Taverley and west of Falador. Ways of getting there include:

The dusty key[edit | edit source]

The dusty key is required to access the deeper areas of the dungeon. To obtain it, go through the dungeon headed south to the Kinshra's (Black Knight) headquarters. Go into the narrow eastern passageway, kill the Jailer (level 47), get the jail key he drops, use it to open the door of the southern jail cell, and talk to the prisoner, Velrak the explorer, to get the key. (Players will not get the dusty key if asking for a reward. If this is done, talk to Velrak again and choose the other conversation branch.) Velrak will not leave the cell. If the key is lost, another one can be obtained in the same way.

Note: The drop trick can be used to get more than one key at once.

The dusty key is not tradeable, but it can be purchased in the Legends' Guild shop. A dusty key always spawns deep in the dungeon near the lava eel fishing area. Since this is in the area behind the gate, most players who do not already have a copy of the key cannot reach this area to take this spawn. Players with level 70 Agility can get the key by using the shortcut to the blue dragon area and going south to the lava eel area.

Layout[edit | edit source]

First half[edit | edit source]

Notable features in the first half of the dungeon include:

The chaos druids and their ritual altar.
  • The Cauldron of Thunder, which is used in the Druidic Ritual quest.
  • Chaos dwarves.
  • A black dragon lair containing 12 black dragons and 5 baby black dragons. They are guarded by Slieve, who will only let players kill them if they have a black dragon task.
  • A blue dragon lair containing 12 blue dragons. They are guarded by Eve, who will only let players kill them if they have a blue dragon task.
  • Chaos druids in the north-eastern area of the dungeon.
  • The Kinshra hideout, which houses Lord Daquarius, who is talked to during Wanted!. Velrak the explorer is confined in a cell and gives a dusty key for players to access the remaining half of the dungeon if they do not have the required Agility levels. Players must kill a jailer to obtain a jail key to enter Velrak's cell.
  • A metal door which bars access to the remaining half of the dungeon, which can only be opened with the dusty key (see above).

Second half[edit | edit source]

The magic axes in their domain.

The second half of the dungeon contains much stronger monsters. Access to this area requires a dusty key, or at least 70 Agility to use the obstacle pipe. Notable features include:

Upper level[edit | edit source]

Blue dragons and their eggs.

The upper level contains blue and black dragons that can only be killed if they are assigned as a slayer task.

  • The black dragon lair, containing 12 black dragons and 5 baby black dragons, can be accessed via a staircase west of the Cauldron of Thunder. They are guarded by Slieve, who will only let players kill them if they have a black dragon task.
  • The blue dragon lair, containing 12 blue dragons, can be accessed via a staircase in the blue dragon area. If players have 70 Agility, they can jump up the rocks opposite the stairs that lead to the black dragons in the upper level. They are guarded by Eve, who will only let players kill them if they have a blue dragon task.

Shortcuts[edit | edit source]

There are four Agility shortcuts located within the dungeon:

  • Squeeze through the loose railing, requiring 63 Agility, between magic axes and lesser demons, still requires a dusty key.
  • Obstacle pipe between the entrance and blue dragons, requires 70 Agility, no dusty key required.
  • Jump over the Strange floor spikes between the entrance and poison spiders, requiring 80 Agility, no dusty key required.
  • The rocks, requiring 70 Agility, north of the obstacle pipe are to the Slayer task-only area upstairs, containing blue dragons, baby black dragons, and black dragons. No dusty key is required for this area.
