[FAQ] • [doc]

Dark warriors are found in the Dark Warriors' Fortress, which is a castle in level 18 to 21 Wilderness north-west of Edgeville. The dark warriors are inside the castle which is surrounded by a moat. They are usually more annoying than an actual threat to players, and have higher defence than their combat level suggests. Dark warriors are known to have the unique but occasional drop of black maces. They are aggressive regardless of a player's level, and leaving the fortress or logging into a different world will cause them to be aggressive again.

Dark warriors have been in their castle in the Wilderness since Runescape Classic, yet there has been no quest objective involving them as of yet. Not much is known about them, however they are most likely affiliated with the Kinshra due to the fact that you can find Elite dark warriors, mages, and rangers guarding alongside Elite black knights in the Black Knights' Catacombs under the Black Knights' Fortress
