Automaton Generators are magic-based opponents created by the Cres, a Guardian of Guthix, to protect Guthix's chamber. They can be found in the central room of Guthix's Cave after the completion of The World Wakes, The Firemaker's Curse, Ritual of the Mahjarrat, The Chosen Commander, The Branches of Darkmeyer, and The Void Stares Back. They require level 67 Slayer to be harmed and are known for their various mid-priced stackable drops and their very rare glove drop.

Generators are recommended for low budget characters, due to the cheaper availability for the level 80 ranged weapons.

Locations[edit | edit source]

Getting there[edit | edit source]

  1. Use the "Guthix shrine" teleport on the sixth-age circuit.
  2. Right-click the High Druid and select "Teleport".

Strategies[edit | edit source]

Main article: Automaton/Strategies

Players should be aware of the monster's special attack, which does a pulsing area of effect damage around the automaton at regular intervals, but roots the monster in place (note it can still perform regular auto attacks while the special is active). This can quickly do 1,000+ damage if multiple pulses contact with the player.

  1. ^ Jagex. Mod Timbo's Twitter account. 19 January 2018. (Archived from the original on 22 January 2019.) Mod Timbo: "1/1280 if you hit the RDT, requires T4 luck to be worn in order to get a hold of it. Of course there are tons of different ways to access the RDT so it changes massively depending on what you're fighting, what you're wearing etc."
  2. ^ Indicates a failed 1/10 roll for Hazelmere's signet ring.
  3. ^ Indicates a roll for Hazelmere's signet ring without tier 4 luck.
  4. ^ Requires tier 4 luck. Rarer than the vecna skull.

Universal drops[edit | edit source]

Universal drops are dropped by nearly every monster outside of Daemonheim.
These items are dropped alongside main drops.

Update history[edit | edit source]

The update history project is a work-in-progress – not all updates to this topic may be covered below. See here for how to help out!
  • patch 2 April 2013 (Update):
    • Automatons can now be stunned.
  • patch 25 March 2013 (Update):
    • Players can no longer receive Cres's Automatons as a co-op slayer assignment if they do not have the requirements to fight them. A login check has been added to fix players who already have these as a task and cannot access them.
