|Description||Can you find the legendary lost city of Zanaris?|
|Enemies to defeat||Tree Spirit (level 101)|
Starting out Edit
Items required: A woodcutting axe.
To start this quest, head into the Lumbridge Swamp. Go west until you find a Warrior, an Archer, a Wizard, and a Monk standing around a camp-fire. Talk to the warrior, and ask him, "What are you camped out here for?" He will let it slip that he is searching for Zanaris. Ask him, "Who is Zanaris?", and then, "If it's hidden, how are you planning to find it?" Lastly, say, "Looks like you don't know where it is either," and in his anger, he will accidentally reveal that there is a leprechaun hiding in a nearby tree who knows how to get to Zanaris.
Head a little bit west, and look for a tree that strangely only has a "Chop" option instead of a "Chop-down" option. Click on the tree, and a leprechaun named Shamus will pop out. Ask him how to get to Zanaris, and he will tell you that you need a Dramen staff. To get this, you will need to chop down a tree inside of the Entrana Dungeon.
The Island of Entrana Edit
Items required: A knife, combat runes, and food (both optional but HIGHLY recommended)
- Items to make better armour, such as a needle, thread, and dragonhide or leather
- A knife & logs (or unstrung bow), and a bow string so you can make a bow.
- Runes (for combat and teleporting)
Note, when you enter the dungeon, your prayer will be reduced to nearly 0. If you aren't safespotting, it's suggested that you bring at least one prayer potion to counteract the effect.
You will have to kill the zombies (level 25)- safespot by mushrooms against west wall or the little group of mushrooms in southern part of zombie area. in the cave until one drops a bronze axe , and then keep traveling around the cave until you see some greater demons and a small cave off to the South. (NOTE: don't go through the magical door to the east, it takes you to level 32 Wilderness). Run past the demons into this cave, and cut the Dramen Tree with the axe you got from the zombies.
A level 101 tree spirit will appear. If you're fast then you can hide behind the mushrooms - on west wall, is effective - in the cave. Bring plenty of arrows for Range - more than 200 if around level 25 Ranged. It is possible to attempt to melee the tree spirit, but it hits hard (11s) and absorbs most melee attacks. A smarter way to take on the tree spirit is to buy runes from the rune store in Port Sarim, and hide behind the fungi to the south of the tree, and use magic (Fire spells recommended), or fletch your bow and craft your armour then range it.It is not possible to have someone else weaken the tree spirit. You must kill it entirely on your own.
Once you've defeated it, cut the tree again to get a Dramen Branch. Cut several if you like so you don't have to move it around in your bank.
Note, if you plan on doing The Fremennik Trials later, it would be wise to get another dramen branch, but do not make it into a staff so that you can smuggle it in Thorvald's trial. Another branch is also required for freeing Sir Amik Varze in Recipe for Disaster.
Finishing up Edit
Items required: Dramen staff.
Teleport out, and make your way back to the Lumbridge Swamps. A player can use the Home Teleport to Lumbridge for quick transportation. Wield your Dramen staff, and enter the small hut in the middle of the swamp, northwest of the Lumbridge Swamp training mine and you'll find yourself in Zanaris. Congratulations, Quest complete!
