Elf warriors are rebel elves who can be found in Lletya. Players who have completed Regicide can receive them as a Slayer task.[1] They are usually killed either as a Slayer task or to obtain teleport crystals which grant quick teleportation to Lletya.

Strengths and weaknesses[edit | edit source]

Elf warriors have high Defence and utilise strong weaponry. The level 108 warriors use a crystal halberd, allowing them to attack from 1 tile away as well as right next to the player. The level 90 warriors use a crystal bow.

It is recommended to use high Prayer boosting armour (e.g. proselyte armour) whilst activating the Protect from Melee prayer when killing them. The slower attack speed of the warriors with a halberd allows easy prayer flicking, allowing long periods between needing to recharge. Players that have access to Lletya can easily recharge their Prayer at the nearby altar when needed.

Killing the elves in Lletya (which requires starting Mourning's End Part I) is more convenient than killing Iorwerth Warriors in the Iorwerth Camp as there is a nearby bank and an altar upstairs in the house where Arianwyn is located.

Slayer strategy[edit | edit source]

A safespot available when slaying elves.
Another safespot available in Lletya. Elves cannot pass the marked tiles.

If the player has 43 Prayer, Protection prayers may be used while using the altar on the 1st floor[UK]2nd floor[US] at Lletya for Prayer restoration. The ladder is located north of the bank. Killing elves in Lletya requires starting Mourning's End Part I.

Some lower-levelled players may find that the safest method is to use Ranged or Magic while using the west bench as a safespot. Note that the fences cannot be used as safespots. Note also that the elf warriors using melee have the same reach as a halberd, and so halberds should not be used by the player due to the fact that they are very slow. There is also a safespot at the entrance of Lletya, just beyond the bench.

Upstairs there is a food shop run by Gethin, where the player can buy bread, lobsters, wine, cheese, and cakes. The shop stocks ten of each food item.

Another alternative to complete this Slayer task is to kill Iorwerth Warriors and Archers at the Iorwerth Camp. The Iorwerth Camp has a fireplace and a fly fishing spot. Therefore, players can kill the elves there while supplying themselves with food through fishing. At the Iorwerth Camp the elves can be safespotted with Ranged or Magic by attacking the ones wielding a crystal halberd and using one of the several stools or spear-walls at the camp. The player needs to stay one extra space away from the stools or spear-walls so that the warriors cannot reach them with their halberd. The moss-covered rocks cannot be fired over and do not serve as safespots.

Another option available to those who have started the quest Mourning's End Part II is to kill the level 108 mourners in the basement of the Mourner Headquarters. As these mourners are considered elves, they count toward a player's Slayer task when killed. The level 108 mourners have lower defensive stats than ordinary Elf Warriors and so may be easier to kill. However, they do not drop seeds or ensouled heads. A slayer ring may be used to teleport the player to the nearby dark beasts. It may be a good idea to use the High alchemy spell here, due to there being frequent drops of green dragonhide bodies, chaps, and rune daggers. Be aware after completion of Song of the Elves, the mourners will NOT be there.

After Song of the Elves, players can choose to kill level 108 Prifddinas guards on the 1st floor[UK]2nd floor[US] of the Tower of Voices. A prayer altar is found nearby, and the Hefin District bank is a short walk to the north once players descend the crystal staircase.
