Description: Killing gladii
Please add tips to the subpage, rather than the article below.
Gladius chathead.png

The Gladius is a Slayer monster, requiring level 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 just west of the Oo'glog lodestone, 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.

Locations[edit | edit source]

Mechanics[edit | edit source]

Gladii fight with moderately weak magic attacks. When a Gladius 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.

Due to this stun mechanic, it's recommended to use a two-handed ranged weapon and fight Gladii on Legacy Mode, to deal high damage with a minimal amount of hits and run up to them as they attempt to teleport away, which will not sacrifice any 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.

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."

Monastery of Ascension map[edit | edit source]

Update history[edit | edit source]

This information has been compiled as part of the update history project. Some updates may not be included - see here for how to help out!
  • patch 9 June 2014 (Update):
    • Ascension creatures will no longer occasionally have text displaying their weakness as Magic.
  • patch 17 December 2013 (Update):
    • Creatures in the Ascension dungeon will now display the correct weakness icon.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Gladius is Latin for sword.
  • Gladii 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.
