"Hobgoblins are a crossbreed between Goblins and Orks. They aren't as tenacious as goblins or as strong as orks, but a hobgoblin's strength generally exceeds goblin's one significantly. During the Third age, Bandos used them extensively in battle. After the god wars, they were left leaderless and now mainly live in a desolate areas or caves, uncivilized. " Where is this information from?


I noticed a few months ago that the drop rate of limpwurts from both Hill Giants and Hobgoblins lowered considerably, while the drop rate of coins increased. Does the amount of drops of limpwurt roots still classify as "extremely common?" Bf2142pwner 17:06, 29 November 2008 (UTC), at your service.

  • I think it still should be "extremely common". I have just returned from fighting a lot of hobgoblins in order to get limpuwrt roots. around every second or third drop was a limpwurt root.

However, i remember last i was killing them, a root was like 1:20 drop rate or something. i dont know if that should be considered as 2extremely common". WE NEED MORE PEOPLE =( FredeTalk 11:38, 7 December 2008 (UTC)

Sand?[edit source]

Alright, sso I go to the area where hobgoblins are to raise my attack points and what do I see in my options...thing? a button that said "Look: Sand", or something like that. Anyway, do you know what that's there for?24.162.226.125 20:35, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

what...[edit source]

what combat level do you have to be for you not to be attacked by these? lvl 42? 57 for the 28s, 85 for the 42s, a Bandos item for the 47. --King x treme 00:25, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

Goblins + Orks[edit source]

Yes, the line "Hobgoblins are a crossbreed between Goblins and Orks" seems plausable and believeable, but I'd like to know the citation. Could someone provde it please?

more info on poh guard plz

![edit source]

Starved ancient effigy: common. I seriously doubt that a monster less that combat level 50 would commonly drop them. Can someone please confirm? 70.231.238.90 20:20, September 19, 2010 (UTC)

Blue Charms[edit source]

Hobgoblins do drop blue charms, but they are extremely rare. I don't know the exact numbers, but I got one from killing at least a couple fo thousand.

The chances of receiving a blue charm though are so low that on the charm log it appears as 0%. It is not saying it is impossible to get blue charms What I've done Ciphrius Kane Talk 15:30, August 15, 2011 (UTC)

Clue Scrolls[edit source]

According to the drop list, Easy Clue Scrolls are an uncommon drop. I've killed thousands of these and never once received a clue scroll. Do they actually drop them at all? Or is it hobgoblins from a specific locale that drop them? Egdcltd 13:24, December 10, 2011 (UTC)

weakness location specific[edit source]

I have found that hobgoblins have different weaknesses depending on where they are. I have only seen two places and they were different in those two places which indicated to me a discrepency.

Hobgoblins at the Hobgoblin Penninsula west of the Crafting Guild are weak to crush whereas Hobgoblins in the Asgarnian Ice Dungeon are weak to air spells.

Could someone investiage this further?

I'm not sure how to edit this... Hobgoblins are not immune to stun. =)

Grapes[edit source]

Over the course of the last two days, I remember that while fighting hobgoblins in the Edgeville Dungeon as an f2p player, hobgoblins dropped 3 grapes each time on at least two separate occasions.  I don't know whether that's part of the "rare drop table" or the hobgoblin's own drop table, but either way, there's no mention of grapes as a drop in the article.  Perhaps this is a new addition, or it just hasn't been documented yet?  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 98.112.169.232 (talk) on 16:58, June 28, 2013.

Effigy from hobgoblin a while ago[edit source]
