Ranger (lv 98) Lancer (lv 106)

Get scabaright on it

Locust riders are encountered during the Contact! quest, inside the Sophanem Dungeon. The level 98 riders attack using somewhat slow Ranged attacks. The level 106 version uses a spear for melee, and attacks faster than the rangers. The level 106 riders can hit a maximum of 25 hitpoints, and the level 98s can hit up to 22. Remember that you need to bring a light source when you are in the dungeon.

Locust Riders are scattered throughout the dungeon. They frequently hit over 20, so Protection Prayers and good food are recommended, especially if multiple riders are encountered.

The Keris Dagger special effect works against Locust Riders.

Though not directly assigned, Locust Riders may be slain as part of a Scabarite assignment. These monsters respawn at an extremely fast rate, so it may be ideal to stay in one spot.

A good strategy to kill these is to wear prayer-boosting armour, such as Proselyte armour and use Protect from Ranged. When your prayer gets low, go back up to Sophanem and recharge your prayer at the High Priest's altar.
