Goblins are generally weak monsters who are popular for combat training for players with lower combat levels, they are especially useful for training melee and magic.

Locations[edit | edit source]

Champion's Challenge[edit | edit source]

A player transformed into a Goblin.

Goblins are one of the 'races' that have champions in the Champion's Challenge Distraction and Diversion. To fight the Goblin Champion, the player must kill goblins until one drops a Champion's scroll, a very rare drop.

Update history[edit | edit source]

The update history project is a work-in-progress – not all updates to this topic may be covered below. See here for how to help out!
  • patch 19 December 2012 (Update):
    • Several goblins have been graphically updated to the same standard as the recently reworked goblins.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Some common goblins have a "talk" option such as the one in the hay barn in Draynor near Mabel. However, upon talking to them, the game box will say "The goblin doesn't have anything interesting to say."
  • Some of the goblins in Goblin Village appear to be smoking cigars.
  • Prior to the Evolution of Combat, the goblins with the flags would run from players. As a result of this, it contradicted their examine text, which was "A soldier to the death." These goblins also had much lower hitpoints than the other goblins in the dungeon, only having 3 hitpoints.
