Yanille (pronounced "ya-NEEL") is a members-only city that lies to the south of Ardougne. It is beset by ogres from the south and west, so Yanille is heavily defended by guards.


Notable features


There is a bank in eastern Yanille.

Wizards' Guild

Main article: Wizards' Guild
The Wizards' Guild requires 66 Magic to enter, and high level wizards can buy runes and mystic robes, mine rune essence, and range or mage captured Zombies.

There are also 4 portals to other magical places in RuneScape.

The Wizards' Guild also gives access to the closest rune essence mine to a bank in the game.

Aleck's Hunter Emporium

The hunter shop sells various items for players training the Hunter skill. Yanille is conveniently located just north of Feldip Hills, a major hunting area.

Dragon Inn

Main article: Dragon Inn
You can buy three types of beer in the Dragon Inn.

This is one of the locations you need to go to for the Alfred Grimhand's Barcrawl miniquest.

House portal

Just west of Bert's house is a POH portal. To move a house to this portal you must have 50 construction and pay any estate agent 25,000 coins to move it.

Players often move their house here because of the closeness to the bank and not having to use their servant to go to the bank for them.

Bert and the sandpit

Bert is the starting point for the Hand in the Sand quest, once this is completed, you can ask Bert for 84 sand to be delivered to your bank every day. You can also use the Lunar Magicks spell NPC Contact to ask Bert for your sand without visiting Yanille.

There is also a sandpit to the west of Bert's hut, where you can collect sand in buckets for use in the Crafting skill.

He also has a range and a sink in his hut.

Khazard mine

Main article: Fight Arena mine
The mine is located north-east of the city, it is one of the closest mines to a bank in the game, and provides excellent experience for miners wishing to get levels quickly. You can find the following ores at the mine:
  • 1 coal rock
  • 8 iron rocks
  • 4 clay rocks
  • 2 copper rocks
  • 7 tin rocks
  • 2 mithril rocks

Yanille Agility dungeon

The Yanille dungeon can be very useful to high level players training Herblore, but high levels of Agility are required to penetrate deep into the dungeon.

There are two ways of entering the dungeon, either just north of the city by slashing a spider web with an edged weapon or knife, or by having 82 Thieving and entering the dungeon just south of the bank.


Main article: Watchtower (building)
The watchtower is located just outside the northwest wall of Yanille. It is the start of the Watchtower quest, and the place you teleport into when you use the Watchtower Teleport spell. You can find watchmen on the second floor who require 65 Thieving to steal from. They yield 60 coins, bread, and 137.5 experience per pickpocket. There is also a fountain just outside the watchtower.

Players needing faster access to either the dungeon, or the bank, or the watchtower (travelling between two of the three) will find the agility shortcut under the wall, that requires just 16 agility to use.


The anvils in Yanille are the second closest to the bank in the game, the closest being Varrock west bank. Many high level smiths choose to smith here because it's quieter, and they can also occasionally go into the Magic Guild to buy runes that they can sell at a profit later.

Cooking Shop

The cooking shop in Yanille sells several items, namely:

There is also a churn for making butter, cream, or cheese with, a sink for water, and a range for cooking.

Hops patch

The hops patch is used in the Farming skill. It is watched over by a farmer named Selena.

Eastern archipelago

The archipelago to the east of Yanille are home to many jungle spiders. Players have to visit the archipelago in The Grand Tree quest. Hazelmere, the gnome mage, may be found up a ladder here. Players may have to go to the archipelago to bring him food as he is a regular customer of the Gnome Restaurant.
