*[[Monks robes]] (optional)
*[[Bronze Axe]] (you need an axe when you're starting the quest and in the cave. You can't take an axe to [[Entrana]] as it's considered a [[weapon]], but the [[zombie]]s drop [[bronze axe]]s)

*You can bring dart tips and feathers and use darts as a ranged weapon. The method using [[Unstrung bow]], [[bowstring]], [[feathers]], [[arrow shafts]], and [[arrow tips]] for rangers (assemble on the island of [[Entrana]], to make more room for food, you can create [[headless arrow]]s before departure) will not work anymore as arrow tips are not allowed onto Entrana.

[[File:Lost City Searching a Tree.png|thumb|right|Search for Leprechaun in a [[tree]] nearby.]]
Head to [[Lumbridge Swamp]], just east of the [[Draynor Village]] [[bank]]. There you will find four adventurers: an [[Adventurer (Archer)|Archer]], a [[Adventurer (Cleric)|Cleric]], a [[Adventurer (Warrior)|Warrior]], and a [[Adventurer (Wizard)|Wizard]].
# Talk to the warrior
# Ask him "Do you know of any good adevntures I can go on"
# Say "I don't think you've found a good adventure at all"
# Ask "What makes you think it's out here?"
# Ask "If it's hidden how are you planning to find it"
# Say "Looks like you don't know either if you're sitting around here"
Now, look for a tree north of the camp, it has a "Search" option that will cause a [[leprachaun]] to appear. Ask him about the Lost City. He will tell you to get a [[Dramen staff]] by carving a [[Dramen branch|Dramen Branch]] from the Dramen tree in [[Entrana]], which can be accessed from [[Port Sarim]].
==Obtaining the Dramen Staff==

Now, quickly bank your hatchet and any [[Armour (equipment type)|armour]] and [[weapons]]. Take out any food and equipment you want to use in the upcoming battle against a fairly difficult [[tree spirit]] (see below). ''Be sure to bring runes to teleport back to the mainland if your magic level is high enough. The only other way out leads to level 31 wilderness.''
Go to Port Sarim and talk to the [[Monk of entrana|monk]] on the southern docks to sail to [[Entrana]]. Attempt to go down the [[ladder]] in the

north-west of [[Entrana]] and you will be warned by a monk of the caves danger in the north-west of [[Entrana|Entrana.]]
'''[[Prayer]] will be drained upon entering [[Entrana dungeon|the cave]].'''
After hearing his warning, descend and begin killing [[zombies]] until one drops a [[bronze axe]]. Go past the [[Greater Demon]]s to find the [[Dramen Tree]]. Attempt to cut the tree and a [[Tree Spirit]] will come out. (Level 36 [[woodcutting]] is required)
==Fighting the Tree Spirit==
[[File:Dramen tree spirit.png|thumb|220x220px|Tree spirit]]
The battle against the [[tree spirit]] can be quite difficult without the use of [[weapon]]s. Food will be most likely be needed even by high level players, and it is advised to you pay close attention to your remaining hits and give yourself time to run away and eat.
Here are several techniques to make the fight easier:
* On a low level account you can hide behind another player to avoid being attacked by the tree spirit.
* You can bring runes to [[Entrana]], so you might want to bring some with you to the battle and cast the highest level fire [[spell]] you can use. However, if your [[magic]] level is low, you might want to use mid-level spells in case of failure.
* You could also use a medium-high level account to farm [[bronze arrow]]s from the [[zombie]]s. This is beneficial after bringing a [[bow string]] and an unstrung bow, then [[fletching]] a bow on Entrana.
* With proper timing and enough food such as lobsters, the spirit can be beaten solo on very low level accounts.
== After the fight ==

After the fight, cut multiple [[Dramen Branch|branches]] from the tree, just to be sure in case you die with one. You can now either [[teleport]] out or exit through the [[magic door]] east of the Greater demons. ('''Warning: The magic door leads to level 31 [[Wilderness]] north east of the [[boneyard|Boneyard]])'''
[[File:Lost City shack.png|thumb|220x220px|Location of the shack]]
Use a [[knife]] on the [[Dramen Branch]] (level 31 [[crafting]] is required) to get the [[Dramen Staff]]. Go to the small empty shack in the [[Lumbridge Swamp]], located just east of Draynor Village bank and west of the Lumbridge Swamp Mine. Equip the Dramen Staff and enter the shack to be teleported to [[Zanaris]], completing the quest. The player will receive the following messages:
: The world starts to shimmer
: You find yourself in different surroundings
: ''Well done you have completed the Lost City of [[Zanaris]] quest''

Start: Talk to the Warrior in Lumbridge Swamp
Requirements: 31 Crafting, 36 Woodcutting, ability to kill a level 95 tree spirit with limited armour or weapons.
Items needed: Knife, any hatchet. Teleport runes and combat runes are recommended.
Note: Players who don't want to quest can buy dragon sword permissions from Mad Zeonk in Edgeville for 1,000,000 coins.
Head to Lumbridge Swamp. There you will find four adventurers: an Archer, a Cleric, a Warrior, and a Wizard. Talk to the warrior and keep on talking to them until you get all the info on the 'Lost City'. Now, look for a tree nearby with a "Search" option and click it. The tree is just northeast of the camp. A leprachaun will appear. Ask him about the Lost City. He will tell you to make a magical staff by carving a Dramen Branch from the Dramen tree in Entrana.
If you haven't already, prepare to go to Entrana by banking all your weapons and any armor. Also prepare to fight the Tree Spirit (lvl-95), with whatever food or combat runes you feel you will need. Go to Port Sarim and talk to the monks to go to Entrana. Go down the ladder in the north-west of Entrana and heed the monk's warning. Keep killing zombies (lvl35) until they drop a bronze axe. Go past the Greater Demons (lvl-87) to find the Dramen Tree. Attempt to cut the tree and a Tree Spirit will come out. Kill it.
After the fight, cut a branch from the tree, and either teleport out or use the door portal which takes you to mid wilderness. Use a knife on the Dramen Branch to get a Dramen Staff. Wield it and go through the door in the small empty shack in the Lumbridge Swamp to complete the quest.
