Lletya (most commonly pronounced "Let-ya", Elvish pronunciation below) is an elven village in Tirannwn that can be accessed shortly after starting Mourning's Ends Part I or after completing part of The Prisoner of Glouphrie. It is currently the only city with a bank in Tirannwn and a starting point for many who wander into the elven lands.
Lletya is Welsh for Lodge or Barrack. According to Reldo, Lletya is pronounced *Ch*let-uh-ah: this is likely transcribed /xlɛtəɑː/. The *ch* indicates a slight rolling of the sound at the base of the tongue, as if you were to attempt to clear your throat quietly and politely, according to Jagex.
During Mourning's Ends Part I, Eluned will teleport you into the city for the first time and give you an elf teleport crystal with 4 charges that lets you teleport back to the city. She will also recharge it for a fee, though this amount goes down the more times you recharge the crystal with her, like with the Crystal bow and Crystal shield. Additional teleport crystals can be obtained from killing the elves in the city, but they will only have three charges.
Assuming they have started the quest, players can also make their way to Lletya by sailing to Port Tyras, and passing through the forest until they reach the gates of Lletya. The same method can be attempted by way of the Underground Pass, and the Arandar Pass.
Players who have completed Prisoner Of Glouphrie may take a safe path that begins near the Ourania Altar entrance, and takes them to the city itself. This path isn't really any shorter and due to the lack of maps of the area, may be more difficult than the other routes, but it can be used even if you have not yet begun the Mourning's Ends quest. However, if you have not yet begun Mourning's Ends Part I, be careful who you talk to in the village. It is safe to talk to most of the elves, and to use the bank and shops, but if you speak to Arianwyn (and possibly some others), you will be transported out of the village because you don't belong there.
If a player chooses not to teleport into Lletya, there is an entrance from the forest of Isafdar, which is guarded by Dire wolves. Trees surround the rest of the city, making it the only way out. The city is filled with butterflies and lights. Players can learn more about the history by reading the books in the bookshelves. Lletya is made completely of logs cut from the forest of Isafdar. In essence, Lletya is basically one building, with a square in the middle. Lletya has two floors; a ground floor and an upper story. In addition, there is a ladder on the upper story to a watchtower.
There are Elf warriors in the square. There is an altar in the upper area, which can help with killing them. In addition, Lletya is a convenient place to kill elves as others are found in very remote areas. Also, there are elves that can be stolen from with 85 Thieving. In the northern area of Lletya, there are four sheep that can be sheared in a pen. The only notable NPC in Lletya is Arianwyn, who plays a part in Mourning's Ends Part I and II quests, and is the leader of the rebel elves.
Most of Lletya's attractions are on the Ground Floor. Nearest to the entrance is a well, from which players may obtain water. There is a spinning wheel in the seamstress's shop. At the south-east corner of Lletya, there is a bank, and a flax field. The flax field is steps away from the bank, making it the most useful flax picking area in the game. North of the clothes is a pen with four sheep, which can be sheared. In addition, many of the NPCs in Lletya are found on the bottom floor, including Arianwyn. In the south-east corner, of the centre area, there is a fruit tree patch. Behind the patch is a frame that can be squeezed through, which serves as a shortcut (not marked on the map) to the bank booth. The farming tools storage is handled by Teclyn. Teclyn is the only non-leprechaun that stores tools. Amaethwr stands nearby, ready to watch your fruit tree, for a fee of course. In the room to the north of Arianwyn is Gwir. She is a scribe and will help you recall the events so far in the Elven Storyline.
There are a few stores on the Ground Floor of Lletya that carry useful stock. As Lletya is in a remote region, they all tend to be well-stocked on variety.

- Main Article:Lletya Seamstress
Oronwen, the seamstress, can repair Mourner trousers for 2 silk and a bear fur. Players must wait some time as she works on them; the waiting period is pretty short. North of the entrance, there is a spinning wheel and the seamstress' shop run by Oronwen. It is a useful place to obtain dyes, because all colours (except pink) are in stock there for six coins.
- Main Article:Lletya Archery Shop
Lletya's archery shop is south of the entrance and is run by Dalldav. It is recommended to not buy arrows here as they are all almost twice their market value.
- Main Article:Lletya Food Store
Gethin is found on the upper story of Lletya, and sells different kinds of food.
The upper area of Lletya is quieter, with fewer NPCs and things to do. If players are playing the game in high-quality, they will be able to see the city below, which makes an impressive sight. The upper floor of Lletya has a couple of functions.
One of them is the Altar of Seren. Another is the two ranges, although they are not very useful due to their distance from the bank, and the inconvenience of repeatedly going up and down a ladder.
The watchtower can be accessed by climbing up the ladder in the archery shop or clothing store, then up the ladder that is found at the top. It allows players to see the landscape from the top of Lletya.
On this map of Lletya, there are a few landmarks pointed out.
- The blue line is the path into and out of Lletya.
- The red line shows trees that function as the city gate, and open when clicked, if you're allowed in.
- The green line shows some tripwires, behind which are the path back to the main path. If you trip the tripwire, you will take damage and be poisoned.
- The yellow dot shows the location of a few aggressive Dire wolves.
- The purple square is the location of 3 Magic Trees.
- Eluned and Islwyn are often at the near the magic trees. They will disappear and reappear at appoximately five minute intervals.
- The cyan square points out a field of flax, positioned very near the bank. Unfortunately, the spinning wheel isn't as close as it looks, since there are a lot of walls and fences in the way that make for long travel time.
Lletya is a very useful location for skillers. There are three magic trees not too far away from Lletya, which are rarely crowded. They are accessed by going south of the dire wolves. In addition, for people with several teleport crystals, players can gather white berries from the nearby spawn.
