He is found in Bandos' Stronghold, which requires a Strength level of 70 and a hammer to access. To enter his quarters, players must have an ecumenical key in their inventory or have killed 40 of Bandos' followers throughout the dungeon, with goblins being the easiest of the followers to kill.

Fight overview[edit | edit source]
Like other God Wars Dungeon bosses, Graardor roams around a rectangular room with his bodyguards until a player enters, attacking them on sight. He attacks primarily with melee (2/3 chance), and his bodyguards use a different combat style each. Graardor may also use a ranged attack (1/3 chance) where he slams the ground, hitting all players in the room which has an equal chance to hit between 15-35 upon successfully hitting the player. If there are no players in his chamber, his health and stats will be reset.
Bodyguards[edit | edit source]
Quotes[edit | edit source]
General Graardor will yell out the following whether or not he is in combat with any players:
- "Death to our enemies!"
- "Break their bones!"
- "Split their skulls!"
- "We feast on the bones of our enemies tonight!"
- "Crush them underfoot!"
- "All glory to Bandos!"
- "For the glory of the Big High War God!"

Rare drop table[edit | edit source]
There is a 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.
