Canifis in OSRS is a unique town in northern Morytania. It is often the first stop for players entering the region for the first time, and its townspeople harbor a rather… hairy secret.
The town contains a bank, Mazchna the Slayer Master, and one of the most popular Agility Rooftop courses in the game. Many players choose to get the Graceful Clothing here. There is also a tannery, where you can turn various hides into leather, and a general store.
A number of quests can be started in Canifis, and a few more feature the location as one you’ll visit during your travels. Many of the NPCs related to these quests can be found in the bar/inn building.
So you can make the most of your questing and Agility training, I’ll show you how to get to Canifis in OSRS.
Priest in Peril
You can get to Canifis in Old School RuneScape following a few simple steps. First, you must complete the quest “Priest in Peril.” It’s a very short quest with no hard requirements, but a few soft ones. You must be able to defeat 2 level 30 enemies, the first of which is immune to Magic.
“Priest in Peril” can be started by talking to King Roald in the Varrock Palace. Though this is a short quest, you can shorten it even further by playing on the RuneLite client and using the plugin “Quest Helper” from the Plugin Hub.
“Quest Helper” is great because it highlights everything you need at every step of the way during your quests. It will show you where to go, who to talk to, monsters to fight, and even which items you need throughout the quest.
Once you have completed “Priest in Peril,” access to Canifis, as well as the rest of the Morytania region, is unlocked. That being said, there are a number of ways to access Canifis from this point. The first being simply to walk there from Varrock.
Second, if you have the Ancient Spellbook equipped after completing the quest “Desert Treasure,” you can use the Kharyll Teleport spell with 66 Magic and the proper runes. This will take you directly into Canifis, near the bar/inn building.
With the same level and quest completion needed to access the spell, you can also direct a portal in your Player-owned House to Kharyll/Canifis. This also requires access to the Portal Chamber room, which can be built with 50 Construction and 100,000 coins.
To direct a Portal Chamber Portal, you need enough runes for 100 casts of the corresponding teleport spell. This seems like a lot, but it’s a small price to pay for unlimited teleports to the areas of your choosing.
Third, you can use a Fairy Ring to get to Canifis in OSRS, provided you have access to the network. You can get access by starting the quest “Fairy Tale II: Cure a Queen.” This quest has several requirements, but none of them are needed to unlock the Fairy Rings.
You do need to have completed the prerequisite quests first, though. These quests include “Fairy Tale I: Growing Pains,” which itself has a number of quest prerequisites. They are: “Lost City,” Nature Spirit,” “The Restless Ghost,” and “Priest in Peril.” Both “Fairy Tale” quests can be started by talking to Martin the Master Gardener in Draynor Village.
Once you have access to the Fairy Rings, you can grab your Dramen/Lunar Staff (from “Lunar Diplomacy”) and enter code CKS from any other Fairy Ring across Gielinor. This will take you just west of Canifis.
Next, you can use an item called the Ectophial to teleport directly to the Ectofuntus, which is located northeast of Canifis. The Ectophial can be obtained by completing the quest “Ghosts Ahoy.”
You need a number of prerequisites for “Ghosts Ahoy,” including 20 Cooking, 25 Agility, as well as completion of “Priest in Peril.” Additionally, you need to have started “The Restless Ghost” and obtained the Ghostspeak Amulet from that quest.
With these requirements met, you can start “Ghosts Ahoy” by speaking to Velorina in Port Phasmatys, just south of the Ectofuntus. Once you complete the quest, you can get to Canifis by using the Ectophial teleport and running west.
Arceuus Teleport Spells
Additionally, you can use the Salve Graveyard Teleport spell from the Arceuus Spellbook, and it will put you right next to the aforementioned Fairy Ring. You need 40 Magic, the proper runes, and at least 60 percent Arceuus favor to use this spell.
There are also tablets of the Salve Graveyard Teleport spell. These are items you can buy from the Grand Exchange, or make yourself in the Study of your Player-owned House. Using the tablets to teleport does not require the necessary Magic level or being on the Arceuus Spellbook.
Also in the Arceuus Spellbook is a spell called Fenkenstrain’s Castle Teleport. It teleports you to Fenkenstrain’s Castle, which is just northeast of Canifis. This one requires 48 Magic, as well as the other requirements detailed above. Tablets exist for this, too.
Finally, you can use a Slayer Ring to teleport to the Morytania Slayer Tower. The Tower is just northwest of Canifis. You can get a Slayer Ring by purchasing one from any Slayer Master for 75 Slayer Reward points.
Alternatively, you can craft your own Slayer Rings. This requires 75 Crafting and the one time unlock “Ring Bling” from the Slayer Rewards menu. With these requirements met, you can make a Slayer Ring by taking a ring mould, gold bar, and enchanted gem to any furnace.
When crafted or bought, the Ring will have 8 charges to teleport you to various Slayer hotspots, like the Slayer Tower, the Fremennik Slayer Dungeon, and the Stronghold Slayer Cave.
Getting to Canifis in OSRS can be done in a few steps and using a few different methods. First, you must complete the quest “Priest in Peril.” Then, you can just run there, use a Fairy Ring, various teleport spells, and teleport items, like the Ectophial and Slayer Ring.
