Dialogue: 1 – 3 – 1 – 2

He tells you about the hidden city of Zanaris. They are trying to find it, but can’t find the Leprechaun in the tree.

They must not have looked very far, because the first tree on the left contains the Leprechaun,

Try to chop the first tree on the left of the encampment as highlighted. (Must have an axe in your inventory)

Shamus will pop out, talk with him.

Dialogue: 2

He tells you the little shed in the swamp is the entrance to Zanaris. But you need to equip a dramenwood staff to enter. The only way to obtain such a staff is to craft it from the branches of a Dramen tree. Which are only found in Zanaris.

And so our quest begins.

Getting the Dramen Branch

For the next part, we will need to go to Entrana, a sacred island where you cannot bring any weapons or armour.

So BANK all your stuff in Draynor Village EXCEPT:

  • Runes for magic spells (to kill the Tree Spirit and multiple Zombies)
  • Some Food
  • Stamina Potions
  • Teleportation out

Once your gear and weapons are banked, run towards Port Sarim and speak with the Monks to take you to Entrana.

The Monks are located on the second dock in Port Sarim (the one behind Veos from X Marks the Spot).

If they don’t let you board, it means you are still wearing or holding onto something that is not allowed.

Once on Entrana, run East (through the church) then North (across the bridge), and then East towards the cave entrance.

Enter this cave.

go down the ladder to the cave

Once inside, you will need to get a Bronze Axe to chop down the Dramenwood tree after the boss fight.

The only way to obtain an axe here is to kill Zombies until one drops it (and yes this can take a while).

Kill Zombies until one of them drops a Bronze Axe.

(I’ve done this quest at least 20 times and this is the first time I got the axe first try)

kill zombies until you get a bronze axe

Once you have the Bronze Axe, run East then South at the Greater Demons.

You’ll find a Dramen Tree. DON’T CHOP DOWN YET.

Prepare yourself for the safespot first.

As soon as you click on chop tree, run behind the mushrooms. The Tree Spirit can’t reach there.

Now simply kill it with magic.

Once the Tree Spirit is dead, chop tree Dramenwood tree.

Repeat multiple times so you have multiple branches and never have to come back here again.

NOW TELEPORT OUT. Don’t try to get out, it leads to the wilderness.

Entering Zanaris

Now it’s time to visit the fabled hidden city of Zanaris.

Bank and get your knife. Use it on the dramen branch to create a Dramen Staff.

Equip the Dramen Staff.

And return to Lumbridge Swamp.

Inside the middle of the Lumbridge Swamp, you’ll find a small shed.
