Gladius chathead.png
Gladii icon.png
Gladius locations within the dungeon. Click the map to view a larger version.

The gladius is a Slayer monster, requiring 81 Slayer to combat. Described as "highly mobile", it is a member of the Order of Ascension.

These monsters are found in the Monastery of Ascension, located in the Feldip Hills, along with capsariiscutarii and rorarii.

They also feature in Nomad's Elegy together with the other Ascension creatures. The Gladii encountered in the quest do not require a Slayer level to harm, and are vulnerable to all forms of combat.

Mechanics[edit | edit source]

Gladii fight with moderately weak magic attacks. When a Gladii takes enough damage, they will "teleport" away from their position and move backwards. If the gap between them and the player is sufficient enough, they will "charge" the player, stunning and binding them for 3 seconds. Players can avoid the stun by using Freedom or Anticipation. Gladii can charge at various angles, most notably in an L-shape like how the Knight piece moves in chess. They may also chase the Gladii, though this may reduce overall damage output.

Alternatively, one can safe spot them with the many tables in the dungeon, as long as they are placed in a position where they cannot charge. The only downside to this is that most of these areas also have Capsarii to heal them.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • A gladius is Latin for sword.
  • Gladius are one of the few monsters capable of stunning their target, the others being Nex during her ice phase, Vyrewatch (until meeting Vanescula in The Branches of Darkmeyer), the Kalphite King, and most ability-using monsters.
  • Gladii are able to teleport around, making it the fourth monster to do so, after the abyssal demon, Pest Control monsters and the tortured souls summoned by the Queen Black Dragon.
  • When stunned the first time by a Gladius, the player is stunned and bound for 3 seconds. However, upon further stuns as long as the player keeps attacking nearby Gladii, they will only have a 1-2 second stun with a 3 second bind.
