Commander Zilyana chathead.png

Commander Zilyana is the appointed leader of Saradomin's forces in the God Wars Dungeon and the sole representative of the Icyene race in Old School RuneScape.

To gain access to her chamber within the Saradomin Encampment, players must have killed 40 of Saradomin's followers throughout the dungeon. Furthermore, in addition to an Agility level of 70 (cannot be boosted), players must bring two ropes on their first visit in order to navigate obstacles in the encampment.

Fight overview

Like other God Wars Dungeon bosses, Zilyana roams around a rectangular room with her bodyguards until a player enters, attacking them on sight. She attacks with very accurate and rapid Melee and Magic attacks, and her bodyguards use a different combat style each. She will only use her Magic attacks at Melee distance. If all players leave, her health and stats will be reset.

Bodyguards

A pair of players fighting Commander Zilyana and her bodyguards.

Quotes

The Commander can be seen yelling several battle cries whether or not she is in combat with any players:

  • Death to the enemies of the light!
  • Slay the evil ones!
  • Saradomin lend me strength!
  • By the power of Saradomin!
  • May Saradomin be my sword!
  • Good will always triumph!
  • Forward! Our allies are with us!
  • Saradomin is with us!
  • In the name of Saradomin!
  • All praise Saradomin!
  • Attack! Find the Godsword!

Trivia

  • While pretending to form an alliance with Armadyl, Commander Zilyana stole the Armadyl crossbow from Kree'arra during the God Wars, keeping it as a trophy of her cunning.
  • Following a patch on the 24th October 2013, Zilyana is susceptible to Ice spells and the Zamorak godsword.
  • At Old School RuneScape's first birthday event, players could speak to Commander Zilyana, resulting in the following dialogue:
    • Player: Greetings, Zilyana.
    • Zilyana: Commander, if you don't mind.
    • Player: I don't, Zilyana.
    • Zilyana: Bah, find me some more cake. oh and FIND THE GODSWORD!
    • Player: I'll err... get some more cake alright?
