Paterdomus, or Temple of Saradomin, is the temple marking Misthalin's eastern border. It acts as the gateway into Morytania and is located on the River Salve. The priest Drezel is the owner of the temple, although it also plays host to some unwelcome Monks of Zamorak, as discovered in the Priest in Peril quest. It is labeled "Paterdomus Temple" on the world map. You can get there quickly by using fairy ring (cks) and traveling west.
Long ago, the Seven Priestly Warriors held back the forces of Lord Lowerniel Vergidiyad Drakan and sanctified the River Salve, thus preventing the hordes of Morytania from being able to cross over and invade Misthalin. The Paterdomus Temple was then built on the site of this famous battle.
During the Priest in Peril quest, it is discovered that the temple has been taken over by Zamorakian monks, who are working on a method to take down the barrier on the Salve.
The basement of the Temple is only accessible if you have started the Priest in Peril quest. It has a Combat level 30 Temple Guardian and is one of two ways into Morytania. In the quest In Aid of the Myreque, you will be able to unlock the secret library filled with books. In addition, the well is a key feature of the temple: players can pass through this barrier to enter Morytania.
The ground floor of the temple has been captured by Monks of Zamorak. For killing these, you will receive only 25% of normal experience. Also on this level is an altar. Just outside of the temple is an Agility shortcut requiring 65 Agility.
Monks of Zamorak can be found on the first two floors of the temple. For killing these, you will receive only 25% of normal experience.
- Obtain the Golden key dropped from killing Monks of Zamorak.
- Swap it out for the Iron key in the dungeon.
- Fill a bucket with holy water from the dungeon's well, and have him bless it.
- Use the blessed water on the coffin to seal the vampyre.
