Kalphite Guardians are found in the Kalphite Lair and Kalphite Cave beneath the Kharidian Desert, located south-west of the Shantay Pass and Al Kharid. An alternative route requires completion of Death to the Dorgeshuun and is south of Dorgesh-Kaan, beyond the Dorgesh-Kaan Agility Course. Rope is required to enter the Kalphite Lair from the desert. In the Kalphite Cave, a Slayer task is required to kill them.

Kalphite Guardians will inflict poison very frequently, which will apply through Protect from Melee, starting at 6 damage. There are Ranged safespots. Kalphite can be killed effectively with the keris partisan or crush weapons like an abyssal bludgeon or Inquisitor's mace due to their lower crush defence.
