A variation of the cyclops in the God Wars Dungeon

A cyclops (plural cyclopes) is a monster primarily found on the top floor of the Warriors' Guild as well as in the God Wars Dungeon, where they are considered Bandosians. Additionally one can be found in Ardougne Zoo. Some are native to Cyclosis, an island in the Wushanko Isles, however the relationship between these and the cyclopes in the west is unclear.

Warriors' Guild cyclopes come in two varieties: Level 57 (which are bald) and Level 68 (which have hair). They have low defence and a reasonably high number of life points, making them a very good training monster. However, they are completely impervious to ranged and magic. The level 57 cyclopes are the lowest level monster to drop hard clue scrolls, although they do not drop them often.

Luck-enhancing items do not increase the chance of getting a defender. Players may spend anywhere from very few to thousands of tokens before getting defender drops (though it would appear that the dragon defender drops more frequently than the other defenders).

If a player logs out while fighting cyclopes in the Warriors' Guild, they will be outside of the room upon logging in and must reselect their choice of token payment.

Cyclopes sometimes summon a Cyclossus in the Warriors' Guild. It possesses considerably more life points and hits much harder. Its special attack knocks the player backwards and stuns them, so it is advisable to be stand against a wall, so that if it does stun, players can still melee it. A cyclossus will not be aggressive if a player is not equipped with a rune or dragon defender, and the player will not be able to attack it either if that is the case. The chance of encountering a Cyclossus increases if the multi-token option is chosen.

Weaknesses[edit | edit source]

In the Warriors' Guild, the Cyclopes have varying melee weaknesses. It is advisable to target the ones weak to a player's specific weapon setup (crush, stab, etc) to maximise kill rates.

The Cyclopes found in Ardougne Zoo and the God Wars Dungeon are weak to Earth spells.

Locations[edit | edit source]

The level 57 and 68 cyclopes may be found in the Warriors' Guild. Only these can drop defenders. To get inside the Warriors' Guild, a player's Attack and Strength levels must add up to a sum of 130 or greater, or either of these stats can be level 99. In order to enter the cyclops area, located on the 2nd floor[UK]3rd floor[US], a player must gain at least 200 Warrior guild tokens. 20 tokens deplete with every minute spent in the room. The player must leave when the tokens run out, and will be forced out if they do not do so.

Level 91 cyclopes inhabit the God Wars Dungeon in the Bandos' stronghold, which require 70 Strength to access.

There is also a level 63 cyclops in the Ardougne Zoo.

    • Cyclopes now drop black knives on free worlds.
  • patch 20 February 2017 (Update):
    • Cyclopes in the Warriors' Guild now have the correct weaknesses.

    • Updated the models of the cyclopes (and the cyclossus) in the Warrior's Guild.
  • patch 4 April 2011 (Update):
    • Cyclopes no longer spawn in the walls in the Warriors’ Guild.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • On the day of the dragon defender's release, the cyclops room in the Warriors' Guild became extremely crowded by medium to high level players trying to receive one as a drop. Because of the difficulty to find a free cyclops to fight, players threw a throwing knife at one the moment it spawned to be the one that attacked it first and switched to a melee weapon to deal damage to it. After an update they can no longer be attacked with Ranged, not even to start a fight.
  • The cyclopes in the Warriors' Guild were graphically updated on 6 February 2017.
