Rope detail

Rope, as one might guess, has many uses in RuneScape. It is used for passing some terrain obstacles, in many quests, and in the creation of certain items. It can be obtained by bringing either 15 coins or 4 balls of wool to Ned in Draynor Village, by spinning Yak hair on a spinning wheel, or by purchase at stores in cities such as Keldagrim or in East Ardougne (the one just north of the zoo).

Rope is a common drop of muggers and outlaws. It can also be found on the ground at Karamja's general store. An unlimited supply of rope can be found in the Brine Rat Cavern, near the Skeleton Fremeniks.

Some of the uses of rope includes:


  • Ned leads to you believe that he makes rope from wool. During The Fremennik Isles quest, however, you discover that Ned trades with the Fremennik in Neitiznot, exchange the wool he receives for rope. The Fremennik are amused that you would believe sturdy rope could be made from something as flimsy as wool rather than tough yak hair.
  • The level 6 muggers in the Asgarnian Ice Dungeon are a relatively convenient and easy way to get rope drops, for players unwilling to purchase rope.
  • Rope is used with terrain in at least three different ways:
    • Permanently placing the rope on the terrain. The rope simply remains there, allowing you to always pass the obstacle.
    • Placing the rope on the terrain and but losing it after limited use. For example, a rope is required to enter the Kalphite Lair and remains at the entrance as long as you are in lair. If you leave the lair (whether by climbing up the rope or by teleport), the rope disappears. This requires you to bring a new rope each time you visit the lair (two ropes if you wish to reach the queen's chamber).
    • Placing the rope on the terrain and getting it back after passing the obstacle. It automatically returns to inventory when you get past the obstacle.
