Kalphite workers work for the Kalphite Queen. They are found throughout the Kalphite Hive. They cannot poison, unlike the majority of Kalphites. They will spawn from cocoons to protect the Queen from intruders if she is close enough to one of them.

Kalphite workers, like all other Kalphites, are affected by the keris dagger. They can also be assigned to players as a Slayer task.

LocationEdit

Nearby fairy rings include: BIQ, slightly south east of the entrance to the hive in the desert. Don't forget a rope to enter the lair if entering for the first time.

AJQ, requires Death to the Dorgeshuun and a light source. The hive is through a door southwest of the ring and is marked with a dungeon icon.

StrategyEdit

  1. Go into the Kalphite Hive
  2. Run around and hit each kalphite worker once so that they all follow you (do not worry, they won't stop following you)
  3. Once they all are collected run round a corner and into the middle of a corridor
  4. This causes the kalphite workers to form a queue, and only begin attacking you after the one before is dead

This allows for fairly easy and rapid completion of the relevant Slayer assignment.

Note: Poisoned weapons can be useful in step 2. Cheap ranged projectiles, such as bronze darts can also speed this up. By attacking the kalphite worker with the ranged weapon, your character has to run less to attract their attention.

See Picture for more details

Players who do not mind the cost can set up a cannon in the middle of the room for a fast Slayer task and xp.

Because they are relatively easy to kill, their inability to poison and the fact that a large number exist in one place, they are often used when kalphites are set as a task. However, they are not very good experience compared to their more dangerous counterparts.

TriviaEdit

  • Kalphite workers spawned from the Queen are always agressive towards players of any level.
  • If a Kalphite worker is spawned during the fight with the Kalphite Queen, they will experience a streching glitch until the spawning animation finishes.
