Faruq, an entrepreneur living in Al Kharid, has brought a variety of new decision making devices to RuneScape! Whether you're holding a race, a scavenger hunt, or just trying to decide on what to do, this is the guy that'll make it fair. This feature is available for both freeplayers and members.

Getting There

Faruq can be found in Al Kharid northeast of the silk trader and east of the Gnome glider. Just take the road near the glider south.

A map of routes to Faruq

The four best ways to get to Faruq are: Lumbridge home teleport, Amulet of Glory teleport, Ring of Duelling teleport, or by gnome glider. If you have completed the Swept Away holiday quest, you can use the broomstick to teleport to the Sorceress' Garden, then walk north.

The Items

Faruq's items can keep track of time, mark out places or routes, decide things randomly, or even hold clan votes.

Faruq's Tools for Games

There is a book he sells called "Faruq's Toolonomicon". This can be bought for 1 gp and will explain how all of the devices work.
