Please add tips to the subpage, rather than the article below.

Spiritual mages are potent magic users in the God Wars Dungeon who require 83 Slayer to kill. Like all monsters in the God Wars Dungeon, they are aggressive to players not wearing items showing affinity to their god, or one of the three types of Ancient equipment.

Spiritual mages are a good source of soul runes, as well as various elemental staves and talismans. In addition, they are currently the only monster to drop dragon boots and gauntlets. They are affected by the buffs of the salve amulet and salve amulet (e).

Armadylean spiritual mages will count towards completing an Aviansie slayer assignment.

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 26 October 2020 (Update):
    • Monsters with multiple variants will now consistently spawn as those variants when newly placed in the Personal Slayer Dungeon.
  • patch 15 February 2011 (Update):
    • Spiritual mages will no longer play a melee attack animation when attacking familiars with magic.
  • patch 27 January 2009 (Update):
    • Fixed Saradomin spiritual warriors and mages using the wrong attack animations.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • These are the only Slayer monsters assigned by Kuradal that do not drop effigies.
  • Bandosian spiritual mages are unique (along with a few other monsters) in the fact that although they possess a wander range, they remain static until attacked, in which they will move accordingly to reach their target.
  • Prior to the Evolution of Combat, spiritual mages, like their melee and ranged variants, were unique among each faction:
    • Zamorak's spiritual mages used the Flames of Zamorak spell; although they had the highest magical accuracy, they had the lowest defence and were tied for the least amount of health with Armadyl's spiritual mages.
    • Saradomin's spiritual mages used the Saradomin Strike spell, and had the highest max hit.
    • Bandos' spiritual mages were significantly weaker than the other mages, but made up for this with higher health and defence.
  • As of 1 February 2018, the highest kill count for these monsters was 219,004 kills.[2]
    • This had increased to 234,232 by 6 May 2018.[3]
