The RuneScape world is large--with numerous dungeons and islands. There are also many forms of transportation other than walking. It can be hard to find someone in RuneScape if you do not know how to get around effectively. Utilizing the proper methods will allow you to get to most locations within minutes--rather than hours.

Click on your “Friends List” icon to see which of your friends are online. Select the name of the person you wish to find and ask them where they are located. Also ask if there are any landmarks near them that are readily identifiable.

Make note of the names of the landmarks they mention.

Click on the world map and type in the landmark names to see where they are on the map.

Determine the quickest route to your friend. Transportation methods include teleports, enchanted jewelry, magic carpets, gnome gliders, and house portals. There are also many shortcuts that have certain agility requirements.


Withdraw any needed supplies before departing, in order to avoid detours to a bank.


Some areas, such as Canifis, require completion of quests to enter.
