Locations[edit | edit source]

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Kalphites are easily safespotted due to their large size.

Kalphite soldiers attack only with melee, which has a slightly uncommon chance to cause poison on a successful hit. The poison is fairly weak, however, and wears off after a few hits. They are weak to Water spells.

They usually just drop gold but they make for decent Slayer experience if you are high enough level to kill them easily, so much so that many would argue that it is only second in Exp/Min to the Dagannoth Tasks. Players can also collect the potato cactus that is spawned in the area. Healing prayers and weapons are very helpful, as you will likely be able to heal as much as or more than the damage you receive from the Soldiers, especially due to the low chance of becoming poisoned, and the low intensity of the poison. These monsters are also commonly ranged with the aid of a dwarf multicannon. They can also be ranged or maged by staying in the safe spot behind the buried skeleton, giving you full range to attack and stay safe.

Mod Timbo: "1/1280 if you hit the RDT, requires T4 luck to be worn in order to get a hold of it. 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."

Universal drops[edit | edit source]

Universal drops are dropped by nearly every monster outside of Daemonheim.
These items are dropped alongside main drops.

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!
  • ninja 25 April 2016 (Update):
    • Improved respawn rates for Kalphites.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Despite appearing to take up 3x3 squares, kalphite soldiers actually only cover a 2x3 area.
