NPC Contact is a magic spell that allows players to talk to various non-player characters around RuneScape without having to visit them directly. It is part of the Lunar spellbook. As with all Lunar spells, the quest Lunar Diplomacy must be completed to cast this spell.

Note: Using NPC contact to contact a person you need to speak for a clue requirement does NOT work. You'll have to speak to the person through normal means.

As of an update on 16 March 2017, players can right-click the spell icon to instantly contact the last person the player has contacted through the use of the spell.

Remember, you cannot use normal Magic or Ancient Magicks spells if you are using Lunar spells, except by use of the Spellbook Swap spell.
