Tips[edit | edit source]

The Salve amulet works on this monster as it is an undead creature.

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.
