The capsarius is a slayer monster requiring level 81 Slayer to combat. Described as a 'healer', it is a member of the Order of Ascension.
These monsters are found in the Monastery of Ascension located in the Feldip Hills, just west of the Oo'glog lodestone, along with gladii, scutarii and rorarii found within the dungeon.
They also feature in Nomad's Elegy together with the other Ascension creatures.
Capsarii are the Order's healers and are rather uncommon throughout the monastery. When a capsarii detects that a fellow member has taken at least 200 or more damage, they will attempt to reach that member. The healing range is the same as their attack range; if they reach the target, then they will start sending orbs of energy that heals the member for 100 health every few ticks, while also applying a massive damage reduction buff on them at the same time. This forces players to kill the Capsarii immediately, as they will heal more than the damage the targeted member takes.
However, they cannot heal themselves nor heal other capsarii. Due to their extremely low health and even lower risk compared to Rorarii, Capsarii are an ideal choice for keystone hunters when placed in the Sunken Pyramid.
The average Capsarius kill is worth 11,132.35 coins.

- patch 9 June 2014 (Update):
- Ascension creatures will no longer occasionally have text displaying their weakness as Magic.
- This monster's name comes from the Latin word 'capsarius', meaning a slave who took care of things. Usually this was referred to those who served as help for doctors practising medicine, which bears similarities to this monster's ability to heal other monsters.
- They appear to be female, yet have a masculine Latin name (rather than being called "Capsaria").
- This monster and the other monsters in the dungeon are the first to have a weakness to a generic attack style (in this case, Ranged). These weaknesses were previously restricted to players.
- A hidden update increased the healing radius of the Capsarius.
- Sometimes, a rare glitch may occur where a Capsarius has died before it is able to heal its target, which will cause the targeted monster to maintain the defensive buffs until killed.
