Al Kharid is a city in the north of the Kharidian Desert. It is the only desert city open to non-members and players in the city do not suffer from the desert effect. Al Kharid is ruled by the Emir, although the vast majority of the work has been taken over by Chancellor Hassan since the Emir's son was kidnapped.

This city is particularly useful to powerminers because of the nearby mining area, which contains tin, copper, iron, silver, gold, mithril, adamant, and coal.

Travel Edit


Cheap passage to Al-Kharid

Al Kharid contains the closest bank to a range and furnace in non-members RuneScape, as well as two reasonably close Fishing spots. It also houses a tanner.

Bank Edit

Al Kharid's bank is to the southwest of the city. See our separate article on Banks. The bank is populated largely by craftsmen, smiths and chefs, largely due to the proximity of the tanners, range and furnace. In the free worlds, it often has many players buying and selling cowhides.

Shops Edit

Zeke's Superior Scimitars Edit

Zeke's Superior Scimitars

Zeke the store owner

The scimitar shop is northeast of the bank.


You can also ask for a Dragon scimitar. If you do this, Zeke makes several puns regarding the Monkey Madness quest required to buy a Dragon scimitar: "The banana-brained nitwits who make them would never sell any to me. Seriously, you'll be a monkey's uncle before you hold a Dragon Scimitar."

Dommik's Crafting Store Edit

Ellis' tannery

Dommik the store owner

This shop stocks identical merchandise to Louie's Armoured Legs Bazaar, except the armour is plateskirts, not platelegs.

Kebab shop Edit

The kebab shop is at the range directly north of the bank, a kebab can be bought for 1 coin here. Karim is the kebab seller.

Gem trader Edit

Gem Trader. (Al Kharid)

Al Kharid Gem Trader (And a Ollie the camel)

The gem trader is to the north of Al Kharid, east of the gate to Lumbridge


Silk Trader Edit

The silk trader near the scimitar shop is a quick and easy way for newer members to gain small amounts of money quickly, too; if the player is prepared to click through a lengthy dialogue, they can buy silk cheaply (3 coins) which can be sold for a profit at a general store other than the one in Al-Kharid.(Note:if you refuse at the first time he'll lower the price to 2 coins)

Ali Morisanne's Bazaar Edit

File:Alis discount wares.png

Ali Morisanne is found east of the gem trader to the northeast of the city near the blue star quest icon File:Questicon.png. He sells various items, and once The Feud is completed, he will open various other shops if you set up merchanting opportunities for him.

Talk to him (there is no Trade option) and select the "Ya, I'll get to it soon." option. When he asks "...Unless you want to make a small purchase from me first?", select Ok.

See Rogue Trader.

The Duel Arena is found northeast of Al Kharid, see the main article Duel Arena.

Miscellaneous Features Edit

  • There is a cactus patch on the east side of the city, used in the Farming skill.
  • The fire altar, used in the Runecrafting skill is located just north of the Duel Arena
  • There is a furnace north of the bank. It is the third closest furnace to a bank in all of RuneScape, the only closer ones being the Port Phasmatys furnace, which requires ectotokens or completion of the Ghosts Ahoy quest for use and requires a Ghostspeak Amulet otherwise banking will be slow, and the Shilo Village furnace, which requires completion of the Jungle Potion quest.

Quests Edit

  • Prince Ali Rescue may be started by speaking to Chancellor Hassan, who is in the southern room of the palace next to the bank.
  • The Feud may be started by speaking to Ali Morrisane at his stall.
  • Shadow of the Storm may be started by speaking to Father Reen who is standing south of the Bank.
