White Wolf Mountain

The Warriors' Guild is a large building located just west of Burthorpe. In order to enter, one's Attack and Strength levels must add up to at least 130 without any boosts. Players may alternatively attain level 99 in one of these skills and will be granted entry. Once inside, players may play various minigames related to melee combat. When players perform well in these minigames, they are rewarded with Warrior guild tokens, which are used to gain entry to the top floor of the guild and kill cyclopes for defenders.


The Warriors' Guild is located in Burthorpe and can be accessed in a number of ways:


Animation room

The animation room of the Warriors' Guild is located on the ground floor[?], southwest of the Guild entrance. This room is one of the most commonly used rooms out of the whole guild to gain tokens. Playing this minigame requires players to bring a set of normal metal armour, such as bronze or mithril. This set should consist of a full helmet (medium will not work), platelegs and a platebody. To begin the minigame, one uses any piece of the armour on one of the animation machines. After using the armour on the machine, the player will be forced to walk away from it and the armour will come to life and begin attacking them. Upon defeating the animated armour, the player may pick it up again along with tokens for defeating it; however, every time a player animates a set of armour and kills it, there is a chance that it will not drop a piece of the armour that makes up the set (black armour and above are safe). Higher-level armour increases the amount of tokens received as a drop.

Also to note, Animated Armour is immune to ranged and magic attacks, as well as poison and venom (if applicable).

A table of each armour set, with how much hitpoints each set has, how many tokens each drops, its combat level, and what the ratio of tokens per hitpoint is, is as follows:

Armour Types
Metal Combat Level HP Tokens Tokens/HP[1]
Bronze 11 10 5 0.50
Iron 23 20 10 0.50
Steel 46 40 15 0.38
Black 69 60 20 0.33
Mithril 92 80 25 0.31
Adamant 113 99 30 0.30
Rune 138 120 40 0.33
  1. Rounded correctly to two decimal places.

Using a set made of iron, only the platelegs ever gets destroyed. Using steel, only the helm ever gets destroyed. Black armour and higher do not get destroyed.

To determine what is the most efficient way to receive tokens, one must consider to take the amount of tokens per hitpoint into account. While the rune suit may drop 40 tokens per kill, the black set drops exactly as many tokens per hitpoint, and has a considerably lower defence level. This means that you may receive more tokens per hour if you kill black armour suits, rather than rune ones. While steel suits give the highest amount of tokens per hitpoint, the helm can disappear, potentially making it less viable for tokens. Also, high level player should take keep in mind that their DPS probably makes it far more click intensive to kill low level armour suits, because they will have to constantly reanimate the suits after just one or two successful hits.

Dummy room

Attack styles

The dummy room of the Warriors' Guild is located on the ground floor[?], northwest of the entrance. There are no requirements for this minigame; however, it is a good idea to bring melee weapons of all types and styles — this includes stab, crush, accurate, defensive, and so on. This room tests players' reflexes with attack styles by creating various dummies. To defeat these dummies, players must choose the correct attack method to destroy them. Players should look at the poster inside of the dummy room for more information on what styles to use for each dummy. Each dummy correctly hit will reward players with 15 Attack experience and 2 tokens.

There are seven dummies in the dummy room, covering all four combat styles (defensive, aggressive, accurate and controlled) and all three melee attack styles (slash, crush, and stab). As a result, choosing the right weapons for this minigame is important. One is required to have at least two weapons to be able to hit every dummy. The best strategy is to bring one weapon that can hit all but one dummy, and another weapon that will deal with the last dummy. For example, a longsword will be able to hit all dummies except for crush, in which case the player could carry a staff for the crush dummy. A mace can hit all dummies but slash, for which the player could carry a battleaxe. Whatever combination is decided upon, it should be kept in mind that the attack bonuses for the weapon do not help in this minigame; therefore, it is as easy to obtain tokens with a bronze longsword as it is with a dragon one. If a player does not have the ideal weaponry for this minigame, he or she can visit Anton on the second floor to buy appropriate weaponry.

This game can be tricky at first. Try to memorise which type of dummy appears in each slot, as the same dummy appears from the same slot each time.

Catapult room

The catapult room of the Warriors' Guild is located on the 1st floor[?], west of the Armoury. There are no requirements for this minigame. To begin this minigame, players may speak with the dwarf outside of the room to obtain a two-handed defensive shield. This shield can only be equipped while standing on the target area. Once the shield is equipped, participants should look at the ammunition being shot at them and observe the panel which replaces the inventory, then select the appropriate defensive style. Each time players defend successfully, they will receive 10 Defence experience and one token. Though this minigame is arguably the easiest at which to be successful, its token payoff is relatively low.

Shot put room

The shot put room of the Warriors' Guild is located on the 1st floor[?], in the northeast corner of the guild. There are no requirements for this minigame. To begin, players pick up a cannonball and select one of the three throwing styles. If a player fails, he or she will drop the ball on his or her toe, losing HP in the process. To reduce this use, one may use a pestle and mortar with ashes to get ground ashes, then use the ground ashes his or her hands. Upon succeeding on the put, the player will gain Strength experience and tokens. The number of tokens received is calculated as follows:

  • For the 18lb balls (left pile), players receive 1 + distance (yards) tokens
  • For the 22lb balls (right pile), players receive 3 + distance (yards) tokens

Each throw will reduce the player's energy. As the player's energy lowers, his or her distance will degrade, until finally, below about 10% energy, one is unable to throw. Waiting for energy to regenerate, using energy potions, strange fruits, or sq'irk juice will allow the player to participate again. Another option is to throw shots until energy is depleted, and then move to a different minigame while regenerating energy. A good tactic if energy potions are available is to throw one ball, restore all energy lost, throw another, restore all energy, and repeating until out of potions, then using up all remaining energy. This can yield a large amount of tokens.

Jimmy's challenge

Jimmy's Challenge is located on the 1st floor[?], east of the Armoury. There are no requirements for this minigame. To begin, click on a keg in the room. You will balance the keg on your head and can go on to select another keg, up to a maximum of five. The kegs will cause damage to you if you lose balance. You will receive 2 tokens for every barrel successfully picked up. To receive tokens, speak to Jimmy and then speak to another games master. If you walk out of the room with barrels on your head, they will disappear.

Pick up one keg and drink energy potions every time your run energy goes down. It is not worth it to pick up several kegs.

Top floor

On the top floor of the Warriors' Guild is a large room where you will find about fifteen Cyclopes, which may be either level 56 or 76. This is where you get the coveted defenders. Entry to the Cyclops room requires a minimum of 100 Warrior guild tokens (10 tokens are now used upon every entrance) and then 10 tokens are charged for every following minute you stay.

Note: Once you reach 99 Attack, wear your Skillcape before entering the room and it will be free of charge for unlimited time, as long as the skillcape is equipped. (You won't need to kill the Animated Armour for Warrior guild tokens anymore.)

On your first entry you can get a bronze defender as a drop from Cyclops. Each time you pick up a new defender, make sure to re-enter the room to be able to acquire stronger defenders, up to the rune defender.

Note: for dragon defenders, see "Basement".

The Cyclopes are immune to ranged and magic attacks.

Defenders are desirable for their offensive bonuses, as well as being untradeable, which makes them popular to use in PvP.


In the basement of the Warriors' Guild, accessible by a trap door west of the guild (exit through the food shop), is another large room containing level 106 Cyclopes. Lorelai will require you to have a rune defender in your inventory before she will allow access to the room. You will be able to re-enter this room without showing a defender after unlocking access to it the first time. Only the Cyclopes that are located in the basement will drop the dragon defender. Entry to the Cyclops room requires 100 Warrior guild tokens. 10 tokens are used upon every entrance, and then 10 tokens are charged for every following minute you stay.

Note: Once you reach 99 Attack, wear your Skillcape before entering the room (you can switch capes when you are through the doors) and it will be free of charge for unlimited time. (You won't need to kill the Animated Armour for Warrior guild tokens anymore.)


The Warriors' Guild has many shops to aid you in playing the minigames or fighting Cyclopes.

Anton (Equipment)

Anton, located on the south wall of the 1st floor[?], runs the Warrior Guild Armoury. Anton buys and sells just about every weapon dropped by Cyclopes.

Note that Anton does not trade black knives, which are a very common drop of Cyclopes, or defenders, which are non-tradeable.

Anton offers the same price as High Level Alchemy gives. Using High Level Alchemy on items tradeable at Anton's shop is therefore only beneficial for gaining magic experience.

Lidio (Food)

Lidio runs the Warrior Guild Food Shop in the northwest corner of the ground floor[?], and sells medium-level food. Specifically, Lidio sells cooked trout, bass, plain pizza, potatoes with cheese, and stew.

Lilly (Potions)

Lilly's Warrior Guild Potion Shop is located in the room east of Lidio. Lilly sells 3-dose strength, attack and defence potions.

Jade (Bank)

Jade is a banker, located in the southwest corner of the ground floor[?] of the guild. Jade gives you full access to your bank account.
