How to Get Into Burgh de Rott in OSRS

Burgh de Rott in OSRS is a unique town inhabited by both humans and vampyres in the depressing swamplands of Morytania. In fact, this location is heavily involved with the Morytania and vampyre questline.

Within Burgh de Rott, players can find a bank, a furnace, a general store, fishing spots for big nets and harpoons, as well as a bar. Many players compare the convenience of these fishing spots to those of Catherby, due to how close they are to the bank. 

Additionally, the questline involving this location is generally regarded as one of the best written and designed in the game. It’s a great storyline that I would highly recommend playing through.

To experience a great story, players should learn how to get into Burgh de Rott in OSRS, and that’s what I’ll teach in this guide.

Questing Requirements

There are several steps to getting into Burgh de Rott in Old School RuneScape. To unlock access at all, you must complete a number of quests, similar to getting to the Elf Camp. First, you must complete “Priest in Peril” to unlock access to Morytania in general. 

“Priest in Peril”

You can start “Priest in Peril” by talking to King Roald in the Varrock Palace, and there are no requirements. After completing, “Priest in Peril,” you’ll need to do the quests “In Search of the Myreque” and “In Aid of the Myreque.”

“In Search of the Myreque”

You can start “In Search of the Myreque” by talking to Vanstrom Klause in the Hair of the Dog Tavern, the bar in Canifis.

Prerequisites

To complete this quest, you need to have completed “Priest in Peril,” “The Restless Ghost,” and “Nature Spirit.”

Each of these quests is relatively quick and easy. Additionally, you’ll need 25 Agility, and confidence in defeating a level 97 enemy for “In Search of the Myreque.” Many players also recommend a Prayer level of at least 43, and a Combat level of at least 45. 

“In Aid of the Myreque”

With “In Search of the Myreque” complete, you can start “In Aid of the Myreque.” You’ll be able to get into Burgh de Rott once you’ve reached a certain point within this quest, and you can start it by talking to Veliaf Hurtz in the Myreque’s secret hideout (you’ll be here right when you finish the previous quest.)

Prerequisites

Stat-wise, you must have 25 Agility, 25 Crafting, 15 Mining, and 7 Magic to do “In Aid of the Myreque.” Additionally, you must be on the regular spellbook, since you’ll be required to cast the Lvl-1 Enchant spell. 

Completing the Quest

I would highly recommend playing OSRS on the RuneLite client, and downloading the plugin “Quest Helper” from the plugin hub. It’s a humongous help that highlights items you need to bring, who to talk to, and even where to click. 

Simply play through the quest, and you’ll find yourself in Burgh de Rott soon enough. Much of the quest involves repairing various facilities around the town. There will come a stage where you must escort Ivan back to the Paterdomus Temple (the one from Priest in Peril.)

Once you’ve reached this stage of the quest, you’ve unlocked access to Burgh de Rott in OSRS. However, this stage is close to the end of the quest, so I would recommend simply finishing it out.

While You’re There

While you’re in Burgh de Rott, there are several activities you can participate in, namely the minigames Shades of Mort’ton and Barrows. The former earns you combat, Crafting, Firemaking, and Prayer experience, while the latter offers a chance at highly sought-after loot.

Additionally, you can start a few quests in the area surrounding Burgh de Rott. The aforementioned Shades of Mort’ton activity requires a quick quest that can be started just north, and the next quests in the Vampyre series can also be started here.

You can also participate in the Temple Trekking minigame from Burgh de Rott, as long as you have completed ‘In Aid of the Myreque.’ Rewards from Temple Trekking include raw materials such as fish, herbs, and metal bars, as well as experience tomes for a random skill.

Alternative Travel Methods

Morytania Legs 3/4

There are several alternative methods of getting into Burgh de Rott once “In Aid of the Myreque” has been completed. First, if you have the Hard (or Elite) Morytania Achievement Diary complete, you can use the Morytania Legs 3 (or 4) to teleport directly there. 

Shades of Mort’ton Minigame Teleport

Second, you can use the Grouping tab of the OSRS interface for a minigame teleport to Shades of Mort’ton. You will need to have completed the quest “Shades of Mort’ton” in order to use this teleport. 

Barrows Teleport

Third, the Barrows Teleport spell (or tablet) from the Arceuus Spellbook will take you straight to the Barrows. From here, you can simply run west through Mort’ton, then south into Burgh de Rott. If you’d like to participate in Barrows, check out the OSRS Rings Guide.

Fairy Rings

Next, you can use the fairy ring code BIP to get to a secluded island not far from Burgh de Rott. You’ll need 50 Agility to cross the river onto the mainland from this island. From there, you can enter Burgh de Rott through Mort’ton, or through a low fence west of the town. 

Rowboat

Finally, during and after the “Sins of the Father” quest, the final quest in the series, you can take a rowboat to the docks from either Slepe or the Icyene Graveyard, both of which are detailed and unlocked during the quest. 

Summary

There are several steps to get into Burgh de Rott in OSRS.

First, you must play through the Morytania questline up to “In Aid of the Myreque.”

Then, play through this quest until all the town’s facilities are repaired.

From this point, you’ll have access to Burgh de Rott.
