Troll generals are huge and powerful Giant trolls that live in the Troll Stronghold, on the top floor.

Troll generals have a reasonably high drop rate of law and nature runes. This can be advantageous for players wishing to high alch drops such as Steel platebodies and Adamant axes for profit.

As a slayer task, Troll generals are a convenient, higher-level choice when assigned Trolls. They have a reasonably high drop rate of nature runes and weapons and armour, including the occasional Granite shield.

Strengths and weaknesses

Troll Generals have surprisingly low accuracy. Nevertheless, high levelled melee armour (such as Barrows) is still recommended if not using prayer, as they can hit extremely hard (up to 38). Therefore, use of the Protect from Melee prayer is strongly recommended. It is possible to use ranged or magic attacks on the generals safely, as their large size allows them to be corner safe-spotted. Water spells work best on them (if using Water Bolt, wear chaos gauntlets) and bolts work fairly well. Extreme caution is advised at all times, as they can leave their respective rooms, although this is a rare occurrence, and they only attack if the player walks right next to them. It is possible to poison them, run out of their range, and let the poison do most of the work.

The Troll general in the far north-west room can be safe spotted by standing in the corridor between his bed and the wall. He cannot enter that corridor and can be ranged or maged.
