Ankou are monsters that are located on the fourth floor of the Stronghold of Security and deep in the Wilderness.


It is highly recommended to have rune armour when fighting ankou, otherwise they're going to be hitting you hard. To maximise the equipment slots for defensive stats, make sure you have boots equipped, as well as a cape as they give +1 to all melee defences. Wear leather gloves, but if you have 40 Ranged you can wear green d'hide vambraces as it has better defensive stats.

An amulet of power is one of the best amulets for free-to-play players, as it gives bonuses in attack, and defensive stats as well as provides the player with strength bonus.

Fight ankou

Ankou have no weaknesses, aside from Crumble Undead. Unless you have a high magic level and can hit hard and often, melee is recommended as ankou tend to hit hard, so defensive equipment such as rune armour is mostly recommended. The same goes with range, since ankou hit hard it is recommended to go range if you have a high range level.

It is recommended to go with rune armour or with green armour and reach and magic skills. There are safe-spots located in the room, but this requires ankou to not have aggro on you as they can roam behind the safespot and attack you.


Try to bring as much food as you can, to prolong the amount of time you can farm ankou. Tuna is a popular option as it is cheap, but players can opt to use lobsters, swordfish, or anchovy pizzas.

If you are using melee, you can bring a strength potion to raise your max hit.

Safespots can be found behind the skeletons, but ankou can roam around.
