Spa or Spa facilities are a reward of the As a First Resort... quest. There are 5 pools located in the Ogre city of Oo'glog. Players can bathe in all pools, and possess all effects from the pools at once.
To enter a pool simply click on it. To leave right click on the edge of the pool and select "Climb out over rocks"
The fastest way to get there is to teleport to Mobilising Armies, by either using the level 10 teleport spell, the Spirit Tree, or the Ring of duelling, and then run east, but alternative methods are available. These include using the Ectophial teleport (or Catherby Teleport) followed by chartering a boat from Port Phasmatys (or Catherby) and running from the Feldip Hills Fairy Ring (AKS) to the agility shortcut. Note that the fastest way into the Fairy Rings is a Slayer ring teleport to the Rellekka Slayer Caves. Players with 57 summoning can use the Spirit Larupia Teleport to land the player a short distance north of Oo'glog in the Chinchompa hunting ground.
Spa Facilities Edit
|Bandos pool||Strange, copper-infused waters.||You jump into the copper infused waters.|
You feel the favour of Bandos wash over you.
|The Bandos pool will mark players as followers of Bandos and none of his followers will attack them in God Wars Dungeon. The effect lasts for one hour. See also: God wars dungeon.|
|Sulphur spring||Smells like rotten eggs.||You jump into the bubbling, sulphurous waters.|
You feel serene after your rest. Your Prayer points have been restored.
|The sulphur spring temporarily boosts Prayer by about 10% of a player's level as it restores Prayer points. This was the highest Prayer bonus given by any altar in RuneScape, but was replaced in December 2009 by the Senntisten Altar with 15% Prayer boost.|
|Salt-water spring||Bubbling water and salt of the earth.||You jump into the limpid, salty waters.|
You feel energised and hastened after your relaxing soak.
|The salt-water spring allows for unlimited run energy by restoring run energy to 100% every second or so for a limited amount of time. Players get an in-game message that the effect has worn off. It will last approximately 10 to 25 minutes, possibly depending on the player's agility level.|
This bath is quite useful for any extended run errands such as doing Treasure Trails, Farming runs, Runecrafting, All Fired Up, Blast Furnace, Penguin/Star hunting as well as several quests. It also allows you to run in the Ice Path, where you normally cannot. For example, a player with a prepared inventory can teleport to Edgeville immediately after exiting pool and run 10-15 abyss trips or more before the effect wears off. It is also very helpful for the Familiarisation minigame, where the unlimited run energy makes it almost impossible to be caught by opposing familiars. The effects of the spring are still active after death.
|Thermal bath||Ever been in hot water before?||You jump into the warm, relaxing thermal bath.|
You've become immunised against disease.
You feel restored and invigorated.
|The thermal bath cures and gives temporary protection from the effects of poison, disease, life point loss, and boosts players' life points above their maximum, by around 15-20%. This is similar to the Elidinis Statuette in Nardah; the effect wears off 1 life point at a time.|
|Mud bath||Mud, mud, glorious mud.||You jump into the pit of thick, squelching mud.
After a bath in such luxuriant mud, you feel your Hunter skills are extra keen.
The mud bath boosts players' Hunter level, making them more likely to catch hunter creatures. This boost will not stack with the boost from drinking a Hunter potion. The bath also temporarily removes the players' scent whilst hunting, therefore not needing to remove their scent from traps by using a lit torch.
- When first released there was a glitch that caused players to appear to be walking on the surface of the "spa" pools, by burning a plant, jumping into a spa pool and waiting until the plant had burnt completely. Now it sometimes happens when you're not burning anything.
- The examine text "Mud, mud glorious mud" is a reference to "The Hippopotamus Song" by the comical duo Flanders and Swann.
- When the Senntisten Altar was released, the Sulphur spring would decrease prayer points if used after the altar. This was fixed on 13 May 2010.
- Seegud claims that if you bathe in the Bandos pool, no follower of Bandos will raise hand against you. However, before the EoC, ogres, jogres, ogresses, etc. would still remain agressive.
