New Varrock guards are found in New Varrock. They are always found in groups with a New Varrock guard captain. If a guard or captain is attacked, they will yell a quote and all nearby guards and the captain will attack the player. It is highly recommended to use Ranged or Magic attacks and safe spot them as their melee attacks can hit high, and they use abilities to increase their damage output. They are killed for resources like coal, steel studs, spider silk, or armour, as the best armour that players can make from store-bought items are up to tier 10. The New Varrock guards can also be summoned during the fight against Zemouregal. These guards can open doors, so it is difficult to get a solo fight with the guards at the gates.
Drop rates estimated based on 195 kills from the Drop Log Project, unless otherwise cited.
