Due to unforeseen circumstances, this shall be the new home of all things Bathtub related.

Click here for those of you who wish to see the original guide, in all its glory.

Let us begin.


The Bathtub

"A bath, bathtub or tub is a large container for holding water in which a person may bathe (take a bath). A bathtub is usually placed in a bathroom either as a stand-alone fixture or in conjunction with a shower."

1. A (brief) History of Baths

Baths first came about with the birth of Zaros, whereby in his younger years, Zaros was fond of playing in the muddy fields around his house. His mother, Equenox the Fat, despised him doing this, but not wanting to quash his freewill, she devised a method of cleansing her son, without ruining his ego (or his best robes). She headed to one of the nearby fields, and from it she withdrew from the earth a hefty sum of clay. With this clay, she forged Zaros a bathtub, within which he would bathe.
Perhaps it was here, in the muddy pits of the digsite that Zaros began to frollock so merrily as a child. Equenox the Fat also bought Zaros his own pet, after he managed to kill her own, Drazhar the rather-satanic-Toad, whose bones can be seen below. Surely, this would be the reasoning behind Azzandra attempting to bring Zaros back from the unknown, into here of all places: his childhood stomping grounds.

As Zaros grew older, and eventually moved out from his childhood home, he was always in need of a good bath. After moving into his new crib in Ghorrock, Zaros desired to have a bathtub of his own. Here, in the basement he created his first ever bathtub (Shown below).
He also created a smaller bath, to bathe his rather dumb, pet monkey by the name of Mojo.

Inspired by their god, followers of Zaros, amazed by the perfect hygiene of their lord, began to copy him, creating baths of their own. In doing so, Zarosians slowly became vastly superior to those of other faiths, a prime example being Nex. This hygiene boost was the key reason in her imprisonment in the God Wars Dungeon, and those warrios fighting upon the floor above, of Zamorak, Saradomin, Bandos and Armadyl all sought to acquire the secret of hygiene. In time however, the phenomena that was personal hygiene began to spread across the land: not only where Zarosians (even Lucien) practicing it, but in time, followers of Saradomin, Armadyl, Zamorak, other minor gods and most notably Bandos began to follow suit, notably shown by the development of the Oo'glog Spa Resort in the southern regions of the Feldip Hills. Truly, the development of the bathtub was instrumental in the shaping of modern day Runescape, defining both the Second and Third Ages, and likely to define the Fourth Age, where it is believed that the follow up quest to Ritual of the Mahjarrat will allow us to use Zaros's bath scrunchie (what is now known as the Stone of Jas), to find Zaros's first ever bath tub: something that is believed to grant the user great power, beyond that ever experienced on Gielinor.
To this day, Humans and other alike races still use the bath tub (despite the development of pouring a bucket of water onto the head, a fad believed that will soon die out) to improve their personal hygiene, although many still use it simply to show their allegiance to the lord Zaros.

3. Speed Running the Baths

So, you say you want to speed run from bath to bath, maximising your hygiene regime so you can gain maximum aesthetics, much like the high lord Zaros? Well you're in luck! Here is the fastest way to access every bath in the land, as quickly and efficiently as possible. So what are you waiting for? Lets begin!

4. Interesting Stuff


Whilst on a casual Bath trip to Oo'glog, I remembered to stop by and visit an old friend of mine: Balnea. Those of you learned in latin will know that Balne is infact latin for Bath. Fancy that eh! We got chatting about business and the like, and lets say, a few drinks later..

Hidden to keep it below PG13


Caught up with Azzanadra whilst running some Baths, figuring I'd pay a visit to Zaros's old stomping grounds.

Zaros is certainly looking forward to fully returning to Runescape!

Hidden for surprises


6. Conclusion & Credits

I hope you, the reader, have thoroughly enjoyed learning about the role of the bath in Runescape, and all it's in game locations. I hope that it will serve you will in your own Runescape adventures, giving you inspiration and a drive to do some good in the world. Remember, the key to success, as shown by Zaros, is a good level of personal hygiene.

I would like to thank my mum, dad, fish, Zezima and IVP for supporting me throughout my research and writing process of this guide. Without you guys it wouldnt have been possible.

Thanks also to TIF Forum Rules.

Many thanks to Dragonkng198, for being himself. You are a babe.
Special mention to 999134thpure for the genius idea of making this guide: you are my one in a million.

Well that was upsetting, do not see the harm in keeping the guide there, it is a lot better quality and more useful that even a lot of the stickied AOW threads(years old completely useless ones).
Still stands the prize just post guides in blogscape...
Check it out, huge amount of effort has gone into this massive mod!

I must thank you all for your kind support during this troublesome time. But the Bathtub Guide will live on!

Hopefully making a speed running video tomorrow, depends on how much work I have to do etc

This is the kind of game-changing research that EoE do into the RS metagame when we're not DGing btw. No excuses for low levels not to bath now.

Bathing prior to any event in RS drastically increases efficiency. No longer will you be distracted by your BO or the muddy patches on your elbows. Bathing is truly RS metagame at its finest, with EoE the leading the way in this new RS efficiency revolution

Well that was upsetting, do not see the harm in keeping the guide there, it is a lot better quality and more useful that even a lot of the stickied AOW threads(years old completely useless ones).
Still stands the prize just post guides in blogscape...


So report them and they'll get removed instead of complaining and doing nothing about it :P
