Genie (underwater) chathead

The Genie appears as a random event. The Genie appears near players and gives them an experience lamp, which may be rubbed to raise a selected skill's experience by 10 times the current level of the particular. For example, if the player has level 30 in Herblore, they would gain 300 Herblore experience if the skill is chosen.

The lamp is generally best used on skills that take longer to level up, such as Runecrafting or Agility. Alternatively, they can be used for skills that are expensive to train, such as Construction. Ironmen may benefit more from using them on skills that are dependent on supplies that are time-consuming to get, most notably Herblore.

If ignored the genie would eventually teleport the player away before the Optional Randoms update.

The Genie's evil brother is encountered in the Spirits of the Elid quest. He resides in a cave west of Nardah, and reveals his distaste for his brother's kindness.


  • Unlike most NPCs, his hairstyle cannot be used.
  • Genie used to address players as Master or Mistress in front of their username.
  • Interestingly, the genie has 3 stripes on his face, like his brother, Hazeel, the Oracle, Vannaka, and Duradel.
  • It is possible to get the event in the underwater section of the quest Recipe for Disaster. When he appears, he is wearing the diving apparatus.
