Jail guards are aggressive bandits found around the Draynor Village jail. They are level 26 and can be dangerous to low level players, especially in numbers, as they are able to wander quite far from the jail and may pursue players on the nearby road or partially into the village. They are equipped with a steel mace, leather body and leather gloves.

The jail guard with blonde hair is not initially aggressive.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Despite having good accuracy and hitpoints, the jail guards have relatively low strength and defence. They are especially prone to slashing attacks. They can also be safespotted from behind the fences. However, when compared to other monsters such as barbarians and hobgoblins, training on jail guards is not as practical due to their lack of drops and slightly longer respawn times.

Role[edit | edit source]

Jail guards are the bodyguards of Lady Keli, and they also guard Prince Ali in the Prince Ali Rescue quest. If a player attempts to talk to Lady Keli after using a rope on her for the quest, a nearby jail guard will become aggressive to that player until they leave the area.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • All of the jail guards have a talk option. Their dialogue is identical to some dialogue options found on Joe, the guard NPC inside the jail.
  • When responding to Lady Keli ordering an attack on a player, the blonde-haired jail guard will say "Yes M'lady". On becoming aggressive from this, he will also say "You will suffer for this!"
