Bookofaberoth Wiki

Gurun is a friendly orc who lives in the Black Bat Cave. Players need a potion of comprehension to understand what he is saying, as his speech will appear as (unintelligible orcish) otherwise. The player can also talk to Gurun if they are polymorphed as an orc. After completing his quests, he will teach you the blunt skill. His refocusing fee is 300 gold per blunt level.

Gurun also buys and sells potions and scrolls of (seemingly) every level; unlike other shopkeepers, his prices dynamically change based on his stock.


Gurun has a large variety of quests and rewards that eventually lead to having the ultimate friendship with Gurun and gaining the Blunt Skill.

Gurun introducing himself to a player.


Gurun buys and sells all potions and scrolls, but can only be restocked by players. He keeps a maximum of 15 stock for low value items, 5 stock for high value items, and 10 stock for everything else. If he has full stock for an item, he will still buy more, but only for 5 gold each.

Prices change regularly based on the amount he has in stock, increasing when he has less than half of his max stock, and decreasing when he has more than half. Items valued in 1000s increase and decrease by 100 gold at a time, items valued in the 100s by 10, etc.

Tavelor will respond to the prompt "Gurun" with a list of items that he has no stock for, in order of price from lowest to highest.


- Gurun used to live in The Desert, near the top northeastern corner. He moved to the Black Bat Cave on June 10, 2016, to help lower-level players by letting them sell and buy scrolls and potions from him. Also because he felt that he didn't get enough customers. But mainly the first reason.

- Gurun's store is a cross-realms area, meaning that players from different realms can still meet each other there. It is the second cross-realm area in the Black Bat Cave.

- 'Gurun' means 'Desert' in Indonesian.

- 'Gurun' is also the name of a place on Turkey and one in Malaysia.
