Things to bring[edit source]

Recommended items[edit source]

  • A one-click teleport out of the dungeon
  • Super energy potions may be helpful

Required items[edit source]

Getting there[edit source]


When we all get to Trollheim, using our various methods mentioned above, as a group, we will run past the Thrower trolls to get to the snowy area with a large boulder blocking the path. Your stats will be quickly drained, along with your run energy - this is due to the snow falling.

We'll push past the boulder and run forward to the area with wolves and the Dying knight. You must speak to him the first time you enter the GWD. Drop or destroy the note he hands you (it is unnecessary), and use your rope on the GWD entrance, and down we go!

When you arrive inside the dungeon, head south east to the agility shortcut required to access Saradomin's Encampment.

Details[edit source]

Friends chat[edit source]

While travelling to the Boss chamber and while everyone is getting up their killcount, you should be in the RSW Events friends chat.

Note: Friends chat, not Clan chat.

After we are sure the majority of attendees are present, we will list however many friends chats are going to be used depending on the turnout. Once they are read out, pick one and hop to the owner's world. They will then rank you to receive loot - don't forget to click the money bag in the top right corner of the friends chat interface! You are free to switch between friends chats at any time during the event, keeping in mind money lost between switching and how many players are in each friends chat.

Note: Changing worlds will not reset your killcount, leaving the dungeon however, will.

Make sure you listen very carefully at the start of the event to help make it run as smoothly as possible and begin killing as soon as possible.

Latecomers: should join into the RSW Events friends chat. The channel name is the name of the friends chat you need to switch to. After you have switched and hopped to the same world as everyone else, alert the friends chat owner that you need to be ranked so you can activate lootshare (coinshare). Please be patient as they will most likely be fighting at the time which requires concentration.

The fight[edit source]

Commander Zilyana attacks with Melee and Magic attacks, both of which hit at the speed of rapid throwing knives/darts, making her rather dangerous. However, both of these attacks are only used in melee range, which means that a sensible strategy for a team is for the person currently under direct attack to run from Zilyana rather than attempt to tank her attacks. After about ten seconds of not being able to reach her target, Zilyana will switch - watch for this and make sure you don't miss yourself becoming the next target.

The nature of Zilyana's attacks make armour choice simple - wearing high-defence melee armour will keep you safe against melee and ranged attacks, and praying against magic will completely nullify any magic attacks. Players not currently under direct attack by Zilyana will only take damage from the minions which, in such a setup, will be minimal


Should you die[edit source]

Death is usually fairly bothersome, but not on this trip. If you should die, your grave will be blessed immediately, giving you one hour to return and pick up your items. Obviously, any items you may be carrying that are not being protected by the gravestone will be lost, so plan what you will bring accordingly. Remember to bring everything you used to get to the GWD on the first trip as you will still need to make your way back to the GWD again.

Commander Zilyana

Drops[edit source]

The unique drops that we will be hunting her include:


For a full list of her drops, see here.

Recommended setup[edit source]

This is simply a suggestion of what armour a melee user may want to bring. You are not obligated to wear anything on this list to the event.

The optimum set to use for Saradomin is strong melee armour with the protect from mage or deflect from mage prayer.

In rough order of preference:
