Scutarii icon.png

Scutarii are slayer creatures, requiring 81 Slayer to kill. Described as a 'shielder', 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 gladiicapsarii and rorarii.

They also feature in Nomad's Elegy together with the other Ascension creatures.

Mechanics[edit | edit source]

The arms of the Scutarii have been heavily warped, with each one forming one "half" of a shield, and they always keep the shield in front of them. The unusually dense crystal also causes all combat damage dealt by the player to be reduced by 90%. Only familiar , poison and the Bombardment ability deals full damage when attacking a Scutarii head-on. Full damage is only dealt when a Scutarii is attacked from behind (and within 45 degrees behind them).

The most common method it to stun them and move behind them before attacking and killing them. The abilities Demoralise and Rout will automatically force Scutarii to turn around, making it unnecessary to move behind them; however, Binding Shot and Tight Bindings will require the player to move behind them for full damage. If both basic and threshold stuns are on cooldown or miss, a more intensive method of killing them is to use an ability and run behind the Scutarii before it can turn around, which will deal full damage.

When stunned, Scutarii become permanently bound onto the spot they were in. They'll also be facing the direction they were looking at when stunned for roughly 10 seconds, after which they will turn around as normal. Though Scutarii appear to be fairly weak, their defence is effectively higher than the Legiones, due to their affinity value being lower than theirs. As such, it's generally not recommended to kill them without tier 90 or higher weaponry, as tier 80 can miss fairly often, even when boosted. With the correct weapons, a slayer task, a ranging boost and Anguish, 100% accuracy can be achieved.

Scutarii are often found in pairs, though there are occasional outliers of a single spawn scattered around the dungeon, and most of them are typically found near Capsarii. There are a few lone exceptions to this, with three Scutarii outside Legio Primus' chamber and five in the agility section of the dungeon, which are free of other members. There is also a group of four right outside the laboratories of Legio Quartus, Legio Quintus and Legio Sextus, albeit with one Capsarii spawn between them.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This monster's name comes from the Latin word for 'shield-bearer', bearing similarities to this monster's appearance.
  • This monster and the other monsters in the dungeon are the first to have a weakness to a generic attack style (in this case, Ranged). These weaknesses were previously restricted to players.
  • If stunned, Scutarii are still able to attack a player even though they do not turn around, making it look as if it was attacking at the air.
  • If a Scutarius is stunned, and then the stun effect wears off, even if the player is under the Scutarius, it will not move from the spot it was stunned in. This might be an oversight or glitch.
  • Scutarii have two different appearances; one with a crystal mask enveloping the face, and another with the crystal mask enveloping the face but having the beard exposed. Originally in the Monastery, if a Scutarii is killed too many times, all future spawns will use the beardless model, with the bearded model only appearing again after a game update. However, when placed in the Sunken Pyramid, both forms are used with equal discretion. The glitch was fixed at an unknown date.
  • There is a bug where if they are placed in the Sunken Pyramid, they will randomly despawn during combat or generate random ascension members in its place.
  • Due to their difficulty, they're the only monster in the Monastery of Ascension that have a different drop rate on ascension keystones; all other monsters share the same drop rate.
