Right, many people have looked at this update not realising how useful it is.
Once activated, the lodestones make getting around on pures/low-level accounts INFINITELY easier.
They almost make teleporting in f2p altogether obsolete.

I'm racking my brain for more miscellanious uses of said lodestones, but my best so far are.

- The Ardougne lodestone teleport is like a noob's Ardy cape 4 - it places you closer to the farming patch than a teleport tablet.

- The Taverley lodestone deposits you riiiight next to the Taverley house portal and Rogue's den.
This means not only easy access to the Rogue's den but also the fastest access to a friend's gilded altar ingame.
Posted Image
Simply use the lodestone teleport, enter your friend's house, use the bones on the altar, bank at castle wars, and repeat. This is 'the' (yet to be confirmed) if not one of the fastest prayer methods if you don't have an altar of your own or have finished Love Story.

- The Falador lodestone is the fastest F2P access to the Gamer's Grotto (fist of Guthix, etc)
Posted Image

- The Al-Kharid lodestone is a great alternative to a ring of duelling for cactus spike runs.
Posted Image

- The Bandit Camp lodestone is PERFECT for not only easy access to training at bandits, but also incredibly fast access to Enahkra's quarry (for granite).
Posted Image

- Yanille remains a great place for using public altars.

Hope this helped some of you. Can you think of any other places to add?

Also the catherby lodestone is by far the best teleport to the fruit tree there, I have found it to beat the camelot teleport and taking a boat there by a long way.

I find it a bit unfair because It used to be a pain the butt for me to get around, now the next gen can just click home tele to any place.

Players have been saying literally the same exact thing for years.  Just because things were more annoying years ago doesn't mean they should stay that way.  If we have the ability to make things more convenient, why would we not do so?  Imagine if we applied this logic to real life: "it used to be a pain in the butt to get around, now everyone has cars!"  No one says that, because people appreciate the convenience that technology brings.

Anyway, nice tip Nom.  These lodestones are pretty helpful.

Port sarim lodestone = invent free teleport to frost dragons and skele wyverns. Faster than, or equal to the house teleport to rimmington methinks.

Also great for when you need to charter a ship or get to pest control.

Yeah, so far I have been loving these lodestone teleports. When doing things such as farming they make it so much easier, as I don't have to waste inventory spaces anymore to carry teletabs. One of my favorite updates so far to the game. :thumbsup:

Wait a second though..you mean to say these are available to people in free to play as well? If so that's amazing!

Port sarim one is the fastest way to reach pest control, way more useful than familiars imo. Might want to add that one ;)
It's also useful for frost dragons since you don't waste inventory slots with the teleport. Not to mention it's also good for skeletal wyvern tasks ;)

edit: noticed everything I said was said above :x

Not if I take it first! Haven't been making tips for a while, but you've inspired me to make some of my own. Granted, it's going to be towards high level players, heh.

Bandit camp tele for switching to ancient magics.
I personally find it pain to use the scepters and it's definitely closer than the slayer ring.

I think you missed the update; you can now teleport directly to Ancient Magicks using the home teleport.  Don't even need to use a lodestone.

I think you missed the update; the "direct Ancient Magicks" teleport is called "Bandit camp" on the interface.

If they did that for Ancients, where is the lunar altar lodestone?

I have no idea what it's called on the interface, I just read the update when it was posted and it said you can now teleport directly to the Ancient Magicks location using the home teleport.  Sorry, my mistake then.  :-P
