The Uzer Hunter Area is a comparably small hunter area, consisting mainly of a small series of clustered rocks. A variety of creatures can be found and captured here. There are several cacti in the area, meaning that players can refill their waterskins easily.
The fastest way to reach the Uzer Hunter Area is to teleport to the Dominion Tower using a Dominion medallion. However, this method requires the player to have 110 combat so not all players can use this method to travel there. Once you arrive at the Dominion Tower lobby simply leave through the exit and the Hunter Area will be a few steps to the North East.
The most common method of reaching the Uzer Hunter Area is through Shantay Pass, which forms the southern border of Al Kharid. They must then travel east and slightly south until they reach a bridge of the River Elid. Once they have crossed it, the Hunter Area is very close by.
A second method is to use the Magic Carpets to travel from Shantay Pass to the Ruins of Uzer in the east. This costs 200 coins, or, if you have reached a certain point in the Rogue Trader mini-game, 100. The price can be further reduced to 75 coins if the player is wearing a Ring of Charos (a). To access the Uzer carpet route, players must have completed The Golem.
Another possible method is to use the fairy rings. To the south of the Hunter Area is a fairy ring with the combination DLQ. This method is fairly fast, but requires that the player reach a certain point in Fairytale II - Cure a Queen. They must also be wielding a Dramen Staff or a Lunar Staff (after Lunar Diplomacy), if they didn't finish Fairytale lll, although they can switch weapons once they passed through the ring. There are also several aggressive level 42 desert lizards in the area.
One final shortcut is to use the Eagle transport system, which requires completion of the Eagles' Peak quest. They player must first move a boulder in a cave north of the Hunter Area to use it. The player must also have a rope, which can be found in the eagle's nest.
Compared to other hunting grounds, the Uzer Hunter Area has few catchable creatures. This, coupled with the desert heat effect, have made it somewhat unpopular amongst high-levelled players. However, at low levels, the Uzer Hunter Area can be a good training area.
The following creatures can be found here:
What to Bring
Because the Hunter Area is in the desert, players must drink water at regular intervals to avoid dying of thirst. It is recommended that players wear light clothing to reduce the amount of water they have to drink.
- Desert Clothing (desert camouflage gear is ideal, as it will increase your success when hunting.)
- Knife - For refilling water at cacti.
- Money for Carpet ride (if completed The Golem)
- Enchanted water tiara - Recommended if Dealing with Scabaras is complete.
- Choc-ices - Will reduce the frequency at which you must drink water.
- The area where the Uzer Hunter Area is was once known as "Here Be Sand" on the world map. When the Hunter Area was added, the name was removed, mainly because the area was no longer famous for having nothing but sand.
