The Lodestone Network is a teleportation system that permits travel to various locations across Gielinor via the Home Teleport spell. After selecting Home Teleport, an interface will pop up, allowing you to choose where to teleport. Lodestones can be found as symbols on the minimap and on the world map, making locating them easy. Apart from Lumbridge, an ancient lodestone in the area must be activated in order to unlock travel to new locations.

A new player can only teleport to Lumbridge by default, and must complete all the tutorial introductory tasks before unlocking new lodestone locations. Note that for free players, the only locations available are Lumbridge, Al Kharid, Draynor Village, Ashdale, Edgeville, Falador, Port Sarim, Varrock, Burthorpe, the Wilderness and Taverley – the members-only locations are greyed out in the background.

Related to unlocking the lodestones are the Lodestone Network Tasks which were released on 13 March 2012 alongside the Lodestone Network update. They consist of unlocking each lodestone with the exception of the lodestones in Burthorpe, Bandit Camp, Lumbridge, and Lunar Isle. Unfortunately the tasks do not yield further rewards, apart from unlocking the lodestones.

The lodestones were built by the second Wizards' Tower wizards after the discovery of teleportational spells. The lodestone network's introduction – and proximity to key locations and other alternative transport networks – has largely reduced the need for teleportation spells across all three spellbooks, as well as the use of Portal Chambers in a Player-owned house.

In proximity of the lodestonesEdit

Banking
  • The lodestone closest to a bank is Prifddinas, but requires completion of Plague's End.
  • The closest lodestone to a bank for free-to-play players is in Burthorpe.
  • The Edgeville lodestone gives access to the Grand Exchange for members with 21 Agility via a shortcut at northwest wall of Grand Exchange, providing quicker access than the Varrock lodestone. The Varrock Teleport spell remains the fastest option when available.
Transport
  • The Yanille lodestone is the closest to the Fairy Ring network.
    • The Edgeville lodestone, however, is the closest to both a bank and a Fairy Ring.
  • The Al Kharid lodestone is closest to the Gnome Glider network.
  • The Port Sarim lodestone is closest to a Charter ship port.
Stat Restore Objects
  • The Falador lodestone is closest to both an Altar and a small obelisk to charge both your Prayer and Summoning points.
  • If you have access to and have done the Canifis God Statue, the Canifis lodestone is the closest to an "altar".
  • The Taverley lodestone is closest to a POH portal(after level 10 construction). It also has convenient access to the Plank maker and the bank.
    • While the Yanille lodestone is also quite close, it requires level 50 construction to locate your home there, has no possibility of converting logs to planks and it takes more time to reach a bank.
Danger
  • The Wilderness volcano lodestone is in the wilderness, and thus dangerous. You will be given a warning (the warning can be turned off, so beware) before teleporting and you will be asked to confirm if you really wish to go there.
  • Players below combat level 15 should take care when using the Edgeville lodestone, as there is an aggressive mugger within range of the teleport spot.
  • When the winter event is active, players should be wary of using the Fremennik lodestone, as it is close to one of Hati's spawn points.

Note that compared to spellbook teleports, most of the lodestones in the lodestone networks are situated far away from the major points of interest. This compensates for the free use of the teleport, without the need for runes.

Quick charges by vis waxEdit

A player has the ability to use vis wax to charge their quick-teleports in the Lodestone Network, allowing for instant teleports. Each vis wax yields 10 charges by which 1 charge is consumed each teleport. A player may store a maximum of 4,000 charges. It costs 628.9 coins per quick-teleport. Instant lodestone teleports was an idea suggested on RuneLabs.

TriviaEdit

  • Only 15 lodestones were available at first, but 7 more (Canifis, Eagles' Peak, Fremennik Province, Karamja, Oo'glog, Tirannwn, Wilderness Volcano) were added on 24 June 2013. The Ashdale lodestone was added on 12 May 2014 and the Prifddinas lodestone was added on 22 September 2014 making a total of 24.
  • Each lodestone is detailed with the city crest of the city it's located in. The Home Teleport interface shows these seals as well.
  • Even though the update page said that Edgeville was unlocked by default for players who've completed Desert Treasure, it was actually the desert Bandit Camp that was unlocked.
  • On the Home Teleport interface, the Port Sarim crest is rectangular, however, on the lodestone it is a shield.
  • A lodestone in real life is a natural magnet, generally naturally magnetised iron ore. The lodestones may be called what they are because, like a compass, they help you navigate around the world, or more likely they were associated with the power to attract other objects, before the discovery of magnetism. They were also considered to be strongly linked with magic as a source of power.
  • If taking a drink of water in the desert after selecting the lodestone you wish to teleport to, the animation will have you standing up. The same thing occurs when taking poison damage.
  • Before the lodestone network, home teleport could only bring you to Lumbridge (you could choose Burthorpe as well if you are member), Edgeville or Lunar Isle, depending on the spellbook used.
  • You cannot use a Lodestone teleport from the Fishing Trawler minigame. Also, you cannot teleport when you have not jumped down from the area you stand immediately after completing/leaving a dungeoneering party.
  • During the 2013 Christmas event Up to Snow Good, the Lumbridge Lodestone was made invisible because of the snow that covered Lumbridge. This also allowed the area where the lodestone was located to be walked over instead of around.
  • On 17 February 2014 the Lodestone Network interface was updated. On free to play worlds members only parts of the map were greyed out and lodestone icons replaced with the membership sigil, clicking on which triggers the subscription form. All teleport locations received a description when a player hovers over an icon.
  • Upon clicking the "Info" option of a J-Mod placed lodestone, it states: This lodestone has been placed by a J-Mod. This means there is an event going on near by. Look out for it.
  • Teleporting to a lodestone via Circus barkers always uses the slow teleport, regardless of the quick teleport setting.
