Skeleton (mage)

From Old School RuneScape Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Not to be confused with Skeleton Mage.

Skeletons are found in Tarn's Lair. They have the same appearance as Skeleton Mages, and also share the same stat-reducing attack which reduces Attack, Strength and Defence stats by 3-4 levels, exclaiming "I infect your body with rot...". They are able to recognize the player's protection prayers and will switch attack styles accordingly, although their melee attack is weaker and less accurate than their Magic attack.

Their Magic attack resembles Earth Bolt and will only be used if the player is unreachable or using protection from melee.
