Lumbridge is a town in the kingdom of Misthalin, north west of Al-Kharid and south of Varrock.
It is the starting point for new players, and they can often be seen running around. It has many useful locations, such as
a cow field, a chicken coop, an axe store, general store and more. Should a player die, they will respawn here, with only their 3 most valuable items. There are a few men in the castle to pickpocket for money.
Players who are used to RuneScape 2 will notice that the normal men is a level 9 on RuneScape Classic instead of level 2.
As Lumbridge is the respawn point for players who die, it is a popular place for players who are staking to hold duels.
- New players start here after finishing the Tutorial Island.
- Lumbridge was named after Cambridge, the headquarters of Jagex, and similarly the River Lum was named after the River Cam.
- Lumbridge was updated on 19 January 2001 to add the northern bridge and the furnace house. The furnace was previously inside Lumbridge Castle.
- Unlike in RuneScape 2, there is no Lumbridge bank in RuneScape Classic. During opening periods, players who started after the bank was added to Lumbridge in RuneScape 2 often wandered around looking for the bank here. A bank would not be added in Lumbridge until 15 March 2006, with the release of Recipe for Disaster.
