An Earth warrior is a monster made of earth which fights using melee. It is weak against water spells.

Earth warriors were once commonly used by players for training, as they have a good amount of life points and do not commonly hit very high on players, though nowadays there are better methods of training. Some players attack the warriors in hopes of gaining the very rare Earth warrior Champion scroll, for the Champion's Challenge. Otherwise, they are a decent source of various seeds and grimy herbs.

Locations[edit | edit source]

In the Edgeville Dungeon, level 15 Agility is required to cross the monkey bars over a pit of spikes. Note that they reside in the members-only, level 7-10 Wilderness section of the dungeon.

The Chaos Tunnels are not in the Wilderness. Players can get there:

Players planning to fight earth warriors in Edgeville Dungeon and Chaos Tunnels will find that after a period of time they no longer are aggressive. However, it is possible to make them aggressive again by leaving their area and coming back (or by using an aggression potion). In the case of the Edgeville Dungeon, this means running south, swinging back over the monkey bars (gives 20 Agility experience) and running all the way to the south wall of the deadly red spider area and then running back. This method is used by players who do not pay much attention while killing these creatures who do not want to pay for aggression potions.

Players planning to fight the earth warriors in the Chaos Tunnels need to beware the bronze dragons in the southern half of the chamber. The portal from the black demon chamber is within range of dragonfire breath of one of the dragons. If this dragon is near the portal (most times it is not), there is a chance that the dragon will breathe fire on the player before the player can get out of range. The player thus should be prepared to take dragonfire damage or bring protection against dragonfire. (For players able to use the Protect from Melee prayer, they can pause in the black demon chamber - hence the need for the prayer - and wait for the dragon to move if it is close to the portal.)

A few earth warriors occasionally wander in the area subject to dragonfire attacks (the south-east quarter of where the warriors can be found). Players without dragonfire protection should avoid the warriors in this area, since the tunnels are multi-way combat.

Tactics[edit | edit source]

Concept art of earth warriors

Use the highest level water spell you can. At low levels, a tome of frost may help offset some cost, especially if using Ancient Magicks. If you're a high-level player grinding for the Champion Scroll, however, consider bringing an augmented staff of limitless air, aggression potions, and using Air Surge at the Chaos Tunnels location instead.

In Daemonheim, earth warriors are weak to various elemental spells, rather than water spells alone.

Champion's Challenge[edit | edit source]

Earth warriors are one of the 'races' who have lesser champions in the Champion's Challenge Distraction and Diversion. To fight the Earth Warrior Champion, the player must kill earth warriors until one drops a Champion's scroll, a very rare drop.

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."
