Xeric's talisman is an amulet that was once owned by Xeric, a tyrannical ruler who reigned over Great Kourend during the Age of Strife nearly 1,030 years ago. It is obtained as a rare drop from killing lizardmen, brutes and shamans. It can also be obtained by stealing from stone chests in the Lizardman Temple beneath Molch, albeit at a slightly rarer rate.

Xeric's Talisman teleport locations

Upon obtaining the talisman, it is inert and uncharged. By charging the talisman with lizardman fangs (costing 21 coins per charge), the talisman becomes able to teleport players to various locations throughout Great Kourend. Each fang provides one charge for the talisman, holding a maximum of 1,000 charges. The charges can be removed whenever a player wishes to do so by selecting the Uncharge option on the charged talisman. This will revert the amulet back to a Xeric's talisman (inert) and return the fangs used to charge it.

It is possible to obtain multiple talismans. However, the charges are not shared between the amulets; thus, they do not stack in the bank. Extra talismans can be dismantled, providing 100 lizardman fangs, giving it an indirect value of 2,100.

In order to use the teleport to Xeric's Honour, the player must receive an Ancient tablet as a common drop from the Chambers of Xeric raid. Using the tablet on the amulet will then permanently unlock this option.

At level 72 Construction, the Xeric's talisman can be mounted in a player's Portal Nexus room within their player-owned house. This requires an inert Xeric's talisman, 1 mahogany plank, 1 gold leaf and 5,000 lizardman fangs. While mounted, the talisman provides unlimited teleport charges.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Xeric's talisman can be dismantled by using a pet rock on it, resulting in a message saying "You bash the talisman with the rock, smashing it into fang-like shards.".
  • During development, the name 'Xeric's Pride' was considered as an alternative to 'Xeric's Glade' for the teleportation destination in Hosidius, due to the suggestive shape of the pathway prior to the Architectural Alliance update on 3 March 2016.[1]
