The Deserted Keep is an abandoned keep surrounded by lava, located deep in the Wilderness, to the east of the Mage Arena. A spider web blocks the entrance to the keep, so, unless someone else has slashed it recently, you will need a knife or a weapon with a slash attack style to enter or exit the keep. An item on the tool belt will work.
There are levers in East Ardougne and Edgeville that, when pulled, teleport the player to the Deserted Keep. Likewise, there is a lever in the Deserted Keep that can teleport players to East Ardougne. If you exit the keep to the right, beware of the Chaos Elemental, and keep an eye out for Player Killers.
- A new lever was added on 16 June, 2009 near Edgeville in the same ruins that the Soul Wars Portal and nettles can be found.
- The lava surrounding the keep resembles the symbol of Guthix.
- The south end of the keep borders level 50 wilderness, which is the highest level of wilderness accessible by free players. However, the keep is in a members only area.
