The First Battle of the Salve was the final battle of the Misthalin - Morytania War, that had lasted a century. During the battle, the forces of Misthalin were finally able to push back Drakan's vampyres to beyond the Salve, although the princes of the Misthalin Bran, Hywell and Henry died in the attempt. Only their youngest brother returned and eventually became King of Misthalin.

When most of the forces had been pushed back, the Seven Priestly Warriors blessed the river in Saradomin's name, thus creating a holy barrier impenetrable by evil forces, trapping the denizens of Morytania inside their own lands. The temple of Paterdomus was erected at the site in their honour and they were entombed there, with the exception of Ivandis Seergaze. Four statues were erected in the fountain on Varrock Square in honour of the four fallen princes.
