Morytania Wushanko Isles Unknown

The Wushanko Isles (also known as the Eastern Lands or Eastern Realms) are an archipelago in the far east of Gielinor, across the sea from Morytania and the Kharidian Desert. They are currently inaccessible.

Description[edit | edit source]

Very little is known of the Wushanko Isles, and the information that is known varies in nature. Only a handful of characters mention it. However, it seems that it is based on medieval Asia.

According to the Mysterious Old Man, the people of the Eastern Lands are famed for their complex toys and puzzles. While exploring it, the Mysterious Old Man happened to find a strange box, which he kept with him. He soon discovered, though, that it magically multiplied constantly, so now he gives them away.

The ghosts of Port Phasmatys are known to trade with the Eastern Lands, although their trade has diminished greatly since their town was conquered by Necrovarus, who is said to have been born there. Ak-Haranu, a trader found in the port's docks, also claims to have come from the Eastern Lands. Ak-Haranu appears to wield a katana.

The Old crone, in her house between the Slayer tower and Fenkenstrain's Castle, says: "I cannot read the strange letters of the Eastern Lands." It seems that, like real-world Asia, cultures in the Eastern Lands have different writing systems than the west.

The cyclopes on the top floor of the Warriors' Guild are "from the far east lands", that means the guildmaster Harrallak likely went on an expedition to and brought them back. Shanomi, a battle mage in charge of the animated armour in the guild, also comes from the Eastern Lands.

The Nightmare and Shura also hail from the Eastern Lands, from the island of Ashihama. Ashihama is located within a group of islands called the Pincers which helps make up the Wushanko Isles.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

A player meets Zaros in the Eastern Lands.
  • During the 2014 April Fools event players could sail to the Eastern Lands by using the Sailing skill. Players who used the boats arrived on a small island and greeted by various NPCs in RuneScape.
