Abyssal guardian

From Old School RuneScape Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

An Abyssal guardian is a monster that dwells in the Abyss, and also in the Abyssal Area (fairy ring code ALR). Abyssal guardians have fairly high Strength for their combat level, though they have low Attack and Defence levels. Abyssal guardians initiate attack with melee, but use magic if attacked first or the player is attacking them from a distance. Their magic attacks are stronger than their melee attacks, but less accurate. However, as they have a very fast reaction time while aggressive, players usually see the magic attack only after they become un-aggressive.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Abyssal guardians' heads have different sides, each representing a happy, angry, sad, and dead face. When it is idling, its happy face is at the front; when it is attacking, it will turn its angry face to the front; when it is being attacked, it will turn its sad face to the front; and when its health is reduced to zero, it will turn its dead face to the front before it dies.
