Commander Zilyana is the appointed leader of Saradomin's forces in the God Wars Dungeon and one of only two living representatives of the Icyene race in Old School RuneScape, the other being the half-human half-Icyene Safalaan.
To gain access to her chamber within the Saradomin Encampment, players must have killed 40 of Saradomin's followers throughout the dungeon. Furthermore, in addition to an Agility level of 70 (cannot be boosted), players must bring two ropes on their first visit in order to navigate obstacles in the encampment. Note, if this is your first time entering the God Wars Dungeon, you will need a total of three ropes.

Fight overview[edit | edit source]
Like other God Wars Dungeon bosses, Zilyana roams around a rectangular room with her bodyguards until a player enters, attacking them on sight. She attacks with very accurate and rapid melee and magic attacks, and her bodyguards use a different combat style each. She will only use her magic attacks at melee distance, which has a minimum hit of 10 should it successfully hit the player. If all players leave, her health and stats will be reset.
Bodyguards[edit | edit source]
Quotes[edit | edit source]
The Commander can be seen yelling several battle cries whether or not she is in combat with any players:
- Death to the enemies of the light!
- Slay the evil ones!
- Saradomin lend me strength!
- By the power of Saradomin!
- May Saradomin be my sword!
- Good will always triumph!
- Forward! Our allies are with us!
- Saradomin is with us!
- In the name of Saradomin!
- All praise Saradomin!
- Attack! Find the Godsword!
Drops[edit | edit source]
Drop rates estimated based on 23,068 kills from the Drop Rate Project, unless otherwise cited.
The average Commander Zilyana kill, including its unique drops, is worth either 151,563, or, excluding the unique drops, 28,857. Furthermore killing the three minions yields an additional 6,277 on average (including uniques), bringing the total to 157,841 per kill.

Rare drop table[edit | edit source]
There is an 8/127 chance of rolling the God Wars Dungeon-variant rare drop table and a 2/127 chance of rolling the God Wars Dungeon-variant gem drop table. This table differs from the regular rare drop table and gem drop table in a few ways. This table is unaffected by the Ring of wealth. The Runite bar drop is replaced by a Rune sword. The quantity range of some items differs. All empty rolls (1/2.70) are replaced by a coin drop of 19,500-20,000; however the chance of rolling these coins is included in the monster's main drop table and is not displayed here for the sake of clarity.

Changes[edit | edit source]
|13 January 2021
Ironmen now have their own shared instance for each God Wars Dungeon general. The "Peek" option on doors will now tell players how many players are in the ironman instance. There is an ancient brazier that was added on the same wall as the final rope. If it is lit it shows there is someone in the Ironman instance.

Added a 'peek' option to the entrance of this boss, allowing players to see the number of other players currently in the boss room.
