[FAQ] [doc]

Forgotten warriors are monsters found in Daemonheim. They attack exclusively with melee and come in a variety of combat levels with armour depending on their tier. They can drop any number of pieces of the armour they are wearing (e.g. one wearing Argonite armour may drop pieces of Argonite equipment), but may drop none at all. They usually have high melee stats and average life points. They are tougher than their combat level suggests; level 80+ Forgotten warriors can easily hit frequent 200s or higher on players wearing no armour, and warriors over level 100 can even hit upwards of 300. They also have high melee and ranged defence, and even the highest-tiered melee and ranged weapons will have trouble hitting them. However, warriors that are weaker than the player can be killed with any combat style without difficulty. As they are typical melee creatures, using magic against Forgotten warriors is highly effective, even while wearing a full set of metal armour yourself; however, safe spotting, if possible, is always the best tactic. As with all melee monsters, ranging them is not recommended, unless they are of a low combat level.  The type of elemental spell to use on each may vary from warrior to warrior.

They can only drop the armour and weapon pieces that they wear or wield. For example, a warrior wearing platelegs and wielding a battleaxe could only drop those two items. A warrior wearing a full helm, platebody, platelegs, and maul could drop all of those pieces of equipment. A common misconception is that Forgotten warriors will drop equipment lower than their own tier; however, they are not known to do this (for example, a warrior wearing tier 6+ equipment will NOT drop fractite (tier 5) equipment). The maximum amount of items a warrior can drop is 7 (weapon, shield, helm, boots, gauntlets, platelegs/skirts, and platebody).

Even on free worlds, warriors with armour such as primal and gorgonite will still have the bonus of their high tiered armour, and should be skipped unless they are located on the critical path. If you must fight them, keep in mind that they still possess the weaknesses of their armour. Because the best equipment available to free players is level 50, it is strongly advised to adjust combat style according to weakness and use magic..

In a 5:5 large dungeon, multiple high-tier forgotten warriors can be encountered in one room, making it very dangerous to fight without Protect from Melee. They are not very dangerous to those wearing a shadow silk hood, and are generally the given the lowest priority in a room on a hooded team (unless it is the only monster in the room, in which case it will usually be very powerful, usually level 138). Combat levels appear to vary to a much greater degree than those of their magic and ranged counterparts, with three or more sets of stats available per tier.

You are able to play as a Forgotten Warrior during the second Dungeoneering saga, Vengeance.


More warriors are always being discovered. Please add any you see.

Forgotten warriors have a chance to drop a random piece of melee armour of their tier (with the exception of primal warriors, who drop promethium armour). It is possible, and not uncommon, for no armour to be received at all.


Forgotten warriors have a chance to drop a wielded weapon of their tier (with the exception of primal warriors, who drop promethium weapons). It is possible, and not uncommon, for no weapons to be received at all.


Please note that the quantities and rarities are random. Dropped food will usually be the second best you can fish and cook, and drops in general will become less generous as you progress.
Torn bags
Please note that non-members can receive torn bags as well, although they can only sell them (or alchemise).


  • During the 2010 Christmas event, some Forgotten warriors were seen wearing scarves and/or santa hats. Female characters could also be seen with mistletoe in their hair.
  • The Warriors seem to be the only Forgotten class that includes female fighters.
  • When teleporting after being summoned by a mercenary leader, they use the animation for the gatestone teleport. This also applies to forgotten rangers and forgotten mages.
  • It is implied in the Vengeance saga that Forgotten Warriors are Fremennik that have become lost within Daemonheim.
  • In the sagas from Skaldrun, Thok calls them "Weaker then Thok", "Girly Warrior", "Coward in Armour", etc."
  • The Forgotten Warriors in Thok It To 'Em have combat levels in the 80s, which means they would be using Katagon, but they are using Promethium instead.
  • In the second saga from Skaldrun, the Forgotten Warriors have the combat level for those wearing Katagon, though 3 of the Forgotten Warriors use Bathus armour, and the other one uses Marmaros/Fractite armour and weapons.
  • At the conclusion of the quest, "What’s Mine is Yours", there is a Forgotten Warrior in the opening ceremony who appears to be wearing Katagon equipment.
  • Rarely, a Forgotten Warrior (Novite), does not have any helm on, which is unusual.
  • There is a glitch where tier 5 and 8 Forgotten warriors seem to be using the incorrect equipment (they use armour downgraded by a tier). However the equipment still holds the same defence as the correct equipment would have.
  • A tier 6 Forgotten Warrior which holds a maul seems to have a Bathus maul wielded instead of a Zephyrium maul.
