Al Kharid is a city in the north of the Kharidian Desert. It is the only desert city open to non-members, and players in the city do not suffer from the desert effect. Al Kharid is ruled by the Emir, although the vast majority of the work has been taken over by Chancellor Hassan since the Emir's son was kidnapped.

This city is particularly useful to powerminers because of the nearby Mining area, which contains tin, copper, iron, silver, gold, mithril, adamantite, and coal rocks.

Al Kharid contains the closest bank to a range and furnace in free-to-play RuneScape, as well as two reasonably close fishing spots. It also houses a tanner, Ellis.


Main article: Bank

Al Kharid's bank is to the southwest of the city. The bank is populated largely by craftsmen, smiths and chefs, largely due to the proximity of the tanner, range and furnace. In the free worlds, it often has many players buying and selling cowhides.

The scimitar shop is northeast of the bank.


You can also ask for a dragon scimitar. If you do this, Zeke makes several puns regarding the Monkey Madness I quest required to buy a dragon scimitar: "The banana-brained nitwits who make them would never sell any to me. Seriously, you'll be a monkey's uncle before you hold a Dragon Scimitar."

Silk traderEdit

The silk trader near the scimitar shop is a quick and easy way for newer members to gain small amounts of money. If the player is prepared to click through a lengthy dialogue, they can buy silk cheaply (3 coins) which can be sold for a profit at a general store other than the one in Al Kharid.

Note: If you refuse at the first time, he'll lower the price to 2 coins.
