Ankou are skeletal, ghostly monsters. They are popular monsters for their common death and blood rune drops. They can be assigned as slayer tasks by Vannaka, Nieve/Steve, Krystilia, Duradel and Konar quo Maten.

Locations[edit | edit source]

Tips[edit | edit source]

The Salve amulet works on this monster as it is an undead creature. However, if Ankous are your Slayer task, the Salve amulet does not stack with the bonus received by the Slayer Helmet.

There is a safe spot at The Forgotten Cemetery, located behind the south west coffin, on the square between the bone spawns. Beware of player killers as this is around level 30 Wilderness.

To speed up an ankou slayer task, a dwarf multicannon can be used in the western part of the Revenant Caves. Beware of both revenants and PKers.
