This article is about the monster. For the NPC, see Elder Chaos druid (NPC).

Elder Chaos druids are high-level mages that are extremely dangerous compared to their low-level counterparts, the chaos druids. Elder Chaos druids use Wind Wave which is fairly accurate if players are not properly equipped. They can also cast a teleportation spell that brings players within meleeing distance if the player tries to evade the battle (If there is multiple targets, even if they are attacking someone else they will attempt to teleport the person who is running that has done the most damage to them before others). The special closely resembles abyssal demons. Elder Chaos druids are a popular place for multicombat player killing. It is suggested to use Protect from Magic when killing these, otherwise they can be very dangerous and can kill you very quickly.


Elder Chaos druids reside in the Chaos Temple, 13 levels deep in the Wilderness. Because of the short distance from the altar within the temple, players with 37 Prayer or higher often train on Elder Chaos druids while using the Protect from Magic prayer. Training on the druids requires little resources and is relatively safe, aside from the inherent dangers of being in the Wilderness.
