Tower Archers are located on top of the archer tower in the Ranging Guild. They are aggressive to players of all levels. The archers have an attack range of 11. You must have an attack range of at least 9 to be able to hit the archers. Magic spells are permitted.

When the archers attack a player, sometimes an arrow appears underneath where they are standing. The lowest-levelled archers drop iron arrows, whereas the other archers drop steel arrows, mithril arrows and adamant arrows in increasing order of strength.

Although the Tower Archers are aggressive regardless of your combat level, they do develop tolerance.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Based on the stat bonuses of these characters, the archers use steel, mithril, adamant and rune arrows respectively. However, the arrows they drop when they shoot at you are one tier lower; that is, they drop iron, steel, mithril and adamant arrows.
