Monks of Zamorak are evil clerics that follow Zamorak, god of chaos. They are found in several locations, including the Asgarnian chaos temple, Taverley Dungeon, Paterdomus, Battlefield mine and Deep Wilderness Dungeon. A caged level 17 monk of zamorak on the ground floor of Varrock Palace is often used in free-to-play servers to train magic using the Curse spell

Despite them being feared they are extremely useful for Ranged training as they are weak towards ranged and there are many safe spots. It is also a useful spot because there is an altar located in the temple for prayer. The monks in Paterdomus[source needed] temple provide less experience than regular monsters, providing players with only a quarter of the usual experience gained from dealing damage. This is still more than the 1/10th experience gained from some quest bosses and attackable random events in the Enchanted Valley though.

One under the radar spot where there are only melee-only combat is directly in the red salamander hunting spot near the Tree Gnome Village. You must defeat a level 30 for completion of Priest in Peril.

They are frequently fought on F2P worlds due to the price of their drops.
