Kalphite Soldiers can be found in the Kalphite Hive west of Shantay Pass. They can also be purchased in the Construction skill to guard the Treasure Rooms of Player-owned houses (see Kalphite Soldier (POH)).

StrategyEdit

Kalphite safespot

Kalphites are easily safespotted due to their large size.

Kalphite soldiers attack only with melee, which has a slightly uncommon chance to cause poison on a successful hit. The poison is fairly weak, however, and wears off after a few hits. They are weak to Water spells.

They usually just drop gold but they make for decent Slayer experience if you are high enough level to kill them easily, so much so that many would argue that it is only second in Exp/Min to the Dagannoth Tasks. Players can also collect the potato cactus that is spawned in the area. Healing prayers and weapons are very helpful, as you will likely be able to heal as much as or more than the damage you receive from the Soldiers, especially due to the low chance of becoming poisoned, and the low intensity of the poison. These monsters are also commonly ranged with the aid of a dwarf multicannon. They can also be ranged or maged by staying in the safe spot behind the buried skeleton, giving you full range to attack and stay safe.
