Glacors (pronounced GLAY-soars) are fairly dangerous monsters, which were brought to Gielinor from another world, Leng. Following the completion of Ritual of the Mahjarrat they can be fought in the Glacor Cave, which can be reached through fairy rings by using the code dkq or by using Master quest cape teleport option 5. Alternatively they can be fought in the Glacor Front of the Elder God Wars Dungeon, where they require level 84 Slayer to harm.

The ability to have them assigned as slayer tasks by Kuradal, Morvran, and Laniakea can be purchased using 50 slayer points after Ritual of the Mahjarrat.

Glacors are the only creatures to drop the three glacyte boots, worth several million coins each. They are also the only source of Shards of Armadyl, 100 of which can be used to craft an Orb of Armadyl, required to make an Armadyl battlestaff. A Most Wanted card may be used to increase the chances of receiving unique drops from glacors.

History and nature[edit | edit source]

Main article: Glacor (race)

The world where glacors originate from is unknown. They are capable of interplanetary travel and travel through space as icy comets; additionally, they are capable of surviving orbital re-entry. An army of glacors once invaded the planet Leng this way, which they then froze beneath a layer of ice miles thick. The glacors remained on Leng and have inhabited it ever since.[1][2] In addition to regular glacors, Arch-Glacors and Ur-Glacors, which are larger and more powerful versions, also exist.[3][4]

The Mahjarrat Lucien summoned several hundred glacors to reinforce him during the 18th Ritual of Rejuvenation, although only one made it to the battle as the remaining several hundred were defeated by Kuradal.[5] Several glacors remain in the cave below the ritual site.

In the Sixth Age, the Elder God, Wen, in search of an army to reclaim her egg, discovered the glacors still on Leng, which for unknown reasons had become affected by shadow anima. She teleported an Arch-Glacor and a large number of standard glacors to Senntisten to breach the cathedral where her egg was held hostage. They were either destroyed or eventually returned to Leng.[6]

The player has a 1/128 chance of accessing this table. Every drop on this table then has equal chance of being accessed, making every individual drop 1/1280. In addition to the 7 drops displayed on the table below, the player also has a chance at receiving 1 random tree seed, 4 random noted herbs and 2 random noted herbs, effectively making this table have 10 possible drops.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Glacors name likely comes from the french word "glace" which means ice.
  • In the Hallowe'en 2011 event, the player had to choose a glacor to represent Frank in statue form. Beauty described them as "a rare form of ice elemental".
  • The glacor fought during the quest can be killed and it will give usual drops.
  • There was a glitch that enabled you to be in combat with 2 glacors at once using Chain. Normally, the ability would ignore other glacors; however, it was able to hit multiple glacors if it was used to initiate combat. This has been fixed on 13 April 2015.
  • Prior to Legacy Mode, glacors had 30,000 life points.
  • The Promised Gift revealed the existence of Arch-Glacors, 100 times larger than regular ones on the plane of Leng.[4]
  • As of 1 February 2018, the highest kill count for this monster was 61,648 kills.[7]
    • This had not increased by 6 May 2018.[8]

When the icy comets appeared in the sky, the people of Leng had no idea what awaited them. The crashing comets wrought devastation as they landed, but something worse rose out of the craters. The incorporeal invaders formed towering suits of armour from the ice they brought with them. That same ice spread across the whole world, covering the cities and freezing their people. Their work done, the glacors stood vigil over a silent, dead world for countless aeons."

In places the snow was blasted away by the wind, and I could see the murky ice reach down into the depths below where the roots of the mountains lay... As I wandered, I saw shapes through the ice, on the bottom far below. They were too regular or too incredible to be natural rock. They were buildings, great cities even, buried in a frozen, sunken slumber."

After killing a couple hundred of those, I managed to escape, but by then it was all over: everyone had gone."
