Ankous are monsters found on the fourth floor of the Stronghold of Security, in the Catacombs of Kourend, and in the Wilderness. They are weak against Melee and the Salve amulet, which can bring extra Combat experience. Players can earn 40,000 to 50,000 experience and over 120,000 gold an hour off them. Ankous drop death runes, blood runes, noted pure essence, noted mithril ore and the occasional hard clue scroll, so they are a great money-maker. Since they are aggressive, it is very easy to AFK for short periods of time. Protect from Melee is recommended when not safespoting.
Although this is also a free-to-play monster, it is not recommended to kill them on free-to-play because players will drastically limit their profitability, due to the fact that the best money-making items (Blood and Death runes) do not drop. Also, the strongest equipment players can use is Rune armour and weapons. Nonetheless, they could still be safespotted with Ranged or Magic. A commonly used safespot is located in the most southern large room behind the two skeletons by the east door, as it is the most protected location on the floor.
Even though they can be found in the Wilderness (The Forgotten Cemetery) for the addition of dark fishing bait, it is not recommended to kill them there due to other nearby aggressive creatures and the location being in moderately deep Wilderness.
