Not to be confused with Skeleton (mage) or Skeletal Mystic.

Skeleton Mages are a rare variant of skeleton that make use of Magic to attack. Thus, it is recommended to wear magic-resistant armour such as dragonhide armour. They play a role in the Swan Song quest, where the player creates an army of them to help defeat the sea trolls.

Level 16 mages usually attack with melee and will occasionally cast a spell, exclaiming "I infect your body with rot..." that resembles Weaken as a projectile and Curse when it lands successfully. If successful, it will lower the player's Attack, Strength and Defence stats by 4 levels.

Level 83 mages cast a spell that resembles Fire Strike and will sometimes use Vulnerability on the player.

Malignius Mortifer will occasionally spawn a non-attackable Skeleton Mage, which follows him around for a while before disappearing. After completing the Swan Song quest, these Skeleton Mages can be spawned by the player using bone seeds. Players can give an airtight pot to Malignius Mortifer to receive more bone seeds. When they open the pot they receive, a skeleton mage appears, performs a random emote, and falls apart.

A player opening a bone seeds in a pot, summoning a Skeleton Mage which then performs the bow emote.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Interestingly, if the player opens bone seeds not for the purpose of defeating the sea troll army, the Skeleton Mage that appears takes on a different appearance, appearing identical to the ones found in the Waterfall Dungeon and the NPC variant that Malignius Mortifer can summon.
