Vet'ion (pronounced "VET-e-un") is a Zamorakian skeletal champion that resides north of the Bone Yard and south of Lava Dragon Isle, and he is the only monster to drop the ring of the gods. Like other bosses in the Wilderness, he can also drop the dragon pickaxe.

Vet'ion has two forms: the (purple) regular form and the (orange) reborn form. After he is defeated in his first form, he will go to his second form. His stats or abilities do not change between forms. If he is not killed within five minutes in his second form, he will revert to his first form with the same hit points. If he reverts after his hellhounds have been killed, the player(s) will not have to kill them a second time.

Unlike the other Wilderness bosses, Vet'ion's lethal attack has a cooldown and as such cannot be used in quick succession.

According to Andros Mai, Vet'ion's power comes from his resting place, which has yet to appear in-game.

Fight overview[edit | edit source]

Vet'ion is highly resistant to any combat style other than crush, and as he is undead, he is susceptible to Salve amulet and its enhanced version. He is not immune to magic damage.

Vet'ion primarily uses a melee that can target players up to three tiles away from him. He also frequently uses an unblockable but avoidable magical attack that launches three lightning bolts, one at the targeted player and two randomly somewhere nearby. Lastly, he may smash his scimitar on the ground, causing an earthquake which deals up to 45 damage on all players within 6 tiles of him, though it's possible for the attack to deal no damage.

He's fought similarly to the Kalphite Queen in which he has two forms, a "normal" and "reborn" form. When he reaches half health in his first form for the first time, he summons two level 214 Skeleton Hellhounds that attack with powerful melee, and must be killed as they grant him complete damage immunity while alive. In the second form, they become level 281 Greater Skeleton Hellhounds that are even stronger and must also be killed.

Like the Kalphite Queen, if players don't kill his second form within 5 minutes, he'll revert back to his normal state.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

Vet'ion will exclaim several quotes throughout the fight:

  • Kill, my pets! (when summoning Skeleton Hellhounds)
  • Do it again!! (when his first form is defeated)
  • Bahh! Go, Dogs!! (when summoning Greater Skeleton Hellhounds)

Changes[edit | edit source]

Date Changes
8 February 2018
(update | poll)

Vet'ion will now use his magic attack less frequently.

6 August 2015

Vet'ion is no longer able to take damage when lured far enough away from his dogs.

30 July 2015

A game engine bug affecting the retaliation of ranging/maging NPCs has been fixed. In particular, this affects Vet'ion and their behaviour when they have moved far from their spawn points, so it will make certain safespots considerably less effective, and will have similar effects on other NPCs with long-range attacks.

2 July 2015

Slayer XP for killing the boss now is awarded to the player who deals the most damage to both forms.

25 June 2015

Drops are now assigned to the hero who has done the most damage to both forms, rather than just the second.

19 March 2015
(update | poll)

Vet'ion now has a chance to drop a pet when killed, Vet'ion jr..

10 July 2014

Tweaked Vet'ion slightly to prevent safespotting.

26 June 2014
(update | poll)

Ring of the gods was added alongside other drop table improvements.

20 March 2014

The drop table has been buffed.
