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..

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!

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.

Hello there,

Firstly I want to tell you this: yours is NOT the best guide. I also think it sounds offensive for you to judge Drazhar44 and Swedishboy5's guides as "an insult to humanity". Why? Simply because I, or anyone else can say that yours is similar to theirs. So what should I call you?

Okay. Everyone knows that a respect for other players/people is necessary. I'm kinda sure that you know that, ofc.

Have fun!

Tans doesn't know who you are... he doesn't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, he'll tell you that he doesn't have money. But what Tans has is a very particular set of skills... skills that make him die at the QBD 9 times out of 10.

Greetings Earthling.
Firstly, you are entitled to your own opinion. Secondly, click here to learn all about sarcasm and its use within the English language. Thirdly, of course my guides will be similar to theirs: they're all on the same topic. Fourthly, you may call me whatever you want.

Fifthly, thanks for posting, have a nice day!

Regards,

Tansuo, Lord of the Bathtubs

Congratulations on the win, Tansuo. You was a good competitor and I have enjoyed our fight. You was the better of us 4, and I hope you enjoy the prize!
