[FAQ] • [doc]

Armoured zombies are undead monsters that are encountered during the Defender of Varrock, Ritual of the Mahjarrat, The World Wakes, Dishonour among Thieves and Dimension of Disaster quests and other locations, see below. The attack style of the zombie can be identified by the colour of the crest on its helmet. Armoured zombies with yellow crests on their helmets use Melee, and those with blue crests use Ranged. Some of these wield scimitars and the others wield thrownaxes.

LocationsEdit

  • Since 1 February 2011, armoured zombies can no longer be reached by going through the Wilderness. Instead, one must get Hartwin to teleport him or her to a safe version of the wilderness, where armoured zombies can be fought by going down the trapdoor to the Chaos Temple Dungeon. As of March 2016 if you are taken there by Hartwin the zombies aren't aggressive and it counts as wilderness again.
  • Armoured zombies are encountered in Varrock during the Defender of Varrock quest, but these only give 10 experience per kill and have no drops. They do leave behind a "red mist". During the Defender of Varrock quest, this "red mist" must be captured in bottles, making Bottle of mist, used to open doors further into the dungeon, and after this quest they have no use.
  • There is one Armoured zombie outside of Zemouregal's fort in The North, but this does not have the usual drops.
  • Sharathteerk summons Armoured zombies to aid him during Ritual of the Mahjarrat.
  • Zemouregal summons Armoured zombies to aid him during The World Wakes.
  • Armoured zombies are encountered underneath Zemouregal's fort during Dimension of Disaster
  • Armoured zombies can be found on the first floor of New Varrock palace in Dimension of Disaster, these drop red mist like the ones in Defender of Varrock. This mist can be gathered in regular vials however.

StrategiesEdit

As armoured zombies are classed as undead creatures, a salve amulet/(e) is useful for fighting them. The amulet can also be used alongside a full slayer helmet or its components.

Due to the convenience of an altar above the location of armoured zombies, combat-boosting prayers such as Turmoil, Leech curses, Chivalry or Piety may be used to increase the experience yield.

To maximize profits when killing these zombies, players should pick up most of the stackable/noted drops which include charms, types of planks, pure essence and Blood Runes, but not mithril arrows or eyes of newt. For maximum experience per hour, players should not bury bones (unless using a Bonecrusher) or bother with herbs (unless using Herbicide), but may pick up the valuable herbs and other worthy drops like key halves (rare).

Armoured zombies training

A player training on Armoured zombies

Before EoC, the zombies were excellent monsters to train on for medium to high levelled players, with many players training their combat skills to level 99. A player with good combat stats and a source of healing, such as Guthan's, could camp here without food indefinitely and earn over 60k exp/hr. The zombies are aggressive, so very little attention had to be paid. These monsters also drop noted planks and pure essences, runes, various herbs, and charms fairly regularly, which could make a player some decent money.
