Transportation includes all of the varied means of getting around the RuneScape realm of Gielinor.

On foot


A player walking.


A player running.

Walking and running are the basic methods of travel. Players walk at a speed of 1 square per server cycle (0.6 second) and run at a speed of 2 squares per server cycle, both diagonally and orthogonally. The amount of weight carried determines how quickly a player's energy is drained while running. The player's Agility level determines how quickly energy is recovered while walking or standing. Pressing and holding down the 'Ctrl' key and clicking on a part of the game window or Minimap temporarily turns on run.

By shortcuts

Main article: Shortcuts

By taking shortcuts with agility, a player is able to reach a destination faster. The higher the Agility level, the more shortcuts are available.

By air

By trains or carts

By water

Sailing is a large transportation method used to get to difficult locations. It is not commonly used because of inconvenient port locations, but can be very useful to get to places such as Entrana.

Port Locations and Prices:

Sailing prices can be lowered if you are wearing the Ring of Charos(a), which is obtained during the Garden of Tranquillity quest.

By Fairy Rings


Fairy Rings is a system founded by fairies. It requires the completion of part of the A Fairy Tale Part II. Players can use this system by stepping onto a "eye" on the ground in Gielinor with either Dramen staff or Lunar staff, which will teleport players to Zanaris.

Some useful teleport locations are:

  • Kharidian Desert.
  • Fisher Realm.
  • TzHaar City.
  • Legend's Guild.
  • Miscellania.
  • South-west Karamja.
  • West of Grand Exchange.
  • Canifis.
  • Zanaris

By Wilderness portals

There are six portals in the wilderness, located in level 13, 19, 27, 35, 44 and 50. They can be activated by touching any one of the pillars. Then, all the NPCs (i.e. Revenants) and players inside the portals are teleported to any other random one.

Other methods

Random destinations

Ignoring many of the random event NPCs, such as the sandwich lady will result in free transportation to random places. Since the destination is unknown many players avoid such methods of travel. Regardless, many adventurers (and even those that are simply bored) enjoy the element of the unknown.
