Clues[edit source]

Do they even drop them? I'm starting to doubt they do... Coelacanth0794 16:00, July 12, 2010 (UTC)

Are you looking for a clue drop? Because if you are, you will probably be better off killing hellhounds, which drop level 3 clues more commonly. Though I'm sure you already know that. :) Annarelda 14:43, July 25, 2010 (UTC)
I have them as task and am hoping I can get a clue out of it. Coelacanth0794 14:48, July 25, 2010 (UTC)

They suggest melee..[edit source]

The guide suggests melee, but there are safe spots in the area and I can easily fire bolt the Kalphite Guardians with 87 mage. Annarelda 14:41, July 25, 2010 (UTC)

Drop table[edit source]

They drop tarromins and marrentils, they're not in the drop table and I don't know how to put them on there, also i'm a bit confused as to why there are no rarities on the herb drop table there is 200 addy arrows

132 gp

starved ancient efiggy

could someone please add them -elpasojerry

+ they also drop ( i think it is extremely rare) 100 clean snapdragons (noted)

Charms[edit source]

How exactly are the charms calculated? I just started killing these and I get blue charms most commonly. 00:31, August 30, 2012 (UTC)

No Steel/Mithril/Adamant Drops[edit source]

Unless my own stats/equipment have something to do with my drops, I don't think that the guardians drop steel, mithril, or adamant items. According to the page, steel axes/hatchets and mithril swords/shields should be common drops, whereas adamant is just uncommon, and rune drops are all uncommon/rare. I killed about 140 of these for an assignment, and I got 2 rune chainbodies, 3 rune daggers, 2 rune helms, and a rune sq shield. I never saw any steel/mithril/adamant items even drop. Is it possible that they are no longer dropped by guardians? I wouldn't want to edit the table just based on one assignment, but it seems fairly hard to believe that they exist if I could get all those rarer rune drops so frequently and never even see a trace of the other metals.

Personally while one assignment isn't a big sample size, I would think that you would have at least saw one common drop with all the amount of guardians you killed. Did you have a spring cleaner by any chance? Santa hat.png Powers38 おはようヾ(´・ω・`) 08:14, June 10, 2017 (UTC)
I've got some springs from Treasure Hunter, but no, no spring cleaner. Also, I got another kalphite task and decided to try again with the guardians. This time I got 1 rune helm and 5 rune chainbodies (wowza) off of 137 guardians (+2 sneaky workers). It might be worth noting that I've only ever fought the two that sit outside the queen's room, never the 2 that are actually inside. But from the ~270 guardians I've killed outside the lair, I can't help but feel that the drop table must have changed, or else the 2 individuals that I keep killing somehow have a different table from wherever the wiki table was sampled. I get mith/addy drops from other assignments like Blue dragons and trolls, so I don't think it's any kind of problem with my build. Still, I'll refrain from changing anything until one or two other people test it out (if anyone cares, though I completely understand if nobody does. The only reason I somewhat care is because I was scratching my head at the 100% ratio of good equipment drops I was getting compared to the wiki table, so I started keeping track). I think I'm outgrowing the guardians, but I'll play with it some more. I'll try killing different ones next time. XtremeHairball (talk) 06:36, June 18, 2017 (UTC)
