Zamorak Saradomin Bandos Armadyl

Spiritual mage icon

The Spiritual mage is a potent Magic Slayer monster found in the God Wars Dungeon that can easily kill low-level players. Protect from Magic and high prayer bonus is highly recommended for anyone wanting to 'camp' these monsters. Like all monsters in the God Wars Dungeon, they are aggressive to any players that do not wear items showing loyalty to their god. Spiritual mages require 83 Slayer to kill (note Spiritual creatures cannot be given as a Slayer assignment if the player has not completed the Death Plateau quest[1]). Just like Spiritual rangers and Spiritual warriors, which require 63 and 68 respectively, there are Spiritual mages from each god.

Spiritual mages are an excellent source for runes and pure essence. They are also the sole dropper of dragon boots.


It is highly recommended to kill Saradominist or Zamorakian spiritual mages, as they have relatively low health and are found in larger numbers than any other god. There are very few Armadylian spiritual mages and Bandosian spiritual mages are rather spread apart and have the most health. For players killing Spiritual mages as part of a Slayer assignment wanting to avoid being attacked by them, the main area contains Saradominist mages who are often engaged in combat with other monsters.

As with all other Armadylian monsters, the Armadyl variant can only be attacked with Ranged or Magic.

The Armadylian variant is not considered an Aviansie for the purposes of a Slayer assignment, even though when the player attempts to attack one with melee a message in the player's chatbox appears saying "The Aviansie is flying too high for you to attack using melee."

  • Spiritual creatures are blocked by 113,241 players and was the most blocked slayer monster in 2017.
