Monks are worshippers of Saradomin who live in monasteries, churches, and on the island of Entrana. Monks will heal the player 2 + 20% of their Hitpoints if the player talks to them and asks them to do so, unless on a PVP world. The monks of Kandarin Monastery however, do not provide this option.

Monks will ocassionally heal themselves 2 Hitpoints at random intervals in combat. They are useful for training on at lower combat levels, as players can talk to another monk and request healing. Because monks can survive small amounts of damage, it's possible for a defence pure to train on the same monk indefinitely.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • It is possible to have a monk heal you after you kill him, as long as you begin a conversation after you have dealt the killing blow before he dies. Also, you can be healed while someone else is fighting the monk.
  • At one point, a hidden update gave players a small amount of Prayer experience for killing a monk. However, this was quickly reversed.
  • Due to unknown reasons, it is now possible for one of the monks to refuse to heal you, despite that they would always automatically heal you in the past without even saying anything in response.
