This article is about standard ghouls. For the Ghoul found within Paterdomus, see Ghoul (Paterdomus).

Ghouls at a graveyard.

Ghouls are a humanoid race and the descendants of a long-dead society that degraded to the point that its people ate their dead. They feed on the rotting flesh of bodies scavenged from grave sites and battlefields. Their appetite for dead bodies is the reason they are found just west of Canifis, at grave sites north of the swamp, and also at another grave site just south of the Slayer Tower. Fairy Ring code C•K•S is very close to them. They are assigned by Slayer Masters Vannaka, Mazchna and Achtryn while Master Mazchna is busy during the quest While Guthix Sleeps.

Ghouls are not undead. They are in fact still alive and immune to the effects of the Salve amulet and Salve amulet (e).

Although the race as a whole is almost completely mindless, at least one non-violent ghoul known as Gus appears to have intelligence comparable to that of a human.

These monsters can be killed for 38 slayer experience each when on a Slayer assignment for ghouls. They do not hit well against players with high defences, although they will occasionally damage even players at quite high levels.

The graveyard is an excellent place to use a Dwarf Cannon, due to the many ghouls and their fast respawn. This strategy can yield a lot of ranged experience and Slayer if killed for an assignment.

A ghoul bone, a special drop, is necessary to collect during the Rag and Bone Man quest.

Some RuneScape players agree that ghouls aren't the very best place to train combat; there are other options such as Armoured zombies or even experiments if you are looking for experience. A prime example of this is when training with a cannon on Ghouls that you will damage multiple ghouls, none of which will actually attack you, thus leaving other RuneScape Players the chance to finish your kill and get your drop.


In Morytania, west of Canifis, north and south of the bridge to the Paterdomus on the Salve River.

The ghouls in the graveyard just north of Mort Myre Swamp are well suited for training ranged and magic. The gravestones do not block ranged or magic and thus provide numerous Safe spots.

Ghouls are one of the 'races' who have lesser champions in the Champions' Challenge activity. To fight the Ghoul Champion, the player must kill ghouls until one drops a Champion scroll, which is a very rare drop.
