[FAQ] • [doc]

Chaos druids are mostly found in the Taverley, Edgeville, and Yanille dungeons. They are commonly used as a training monster due to their high drop rate of grimy herbs. They use a magical attack which has the same animation as Snare and the draining effects of Confuse. Their attack will also stop you from attacking. Chaos druids in Edgeville and Taverley Dungeon are aggressive towards players below combat level 65. At other locations they do not attack on sight.

Herb running

Herb running is a source of income for low-levels. It involves killing Chaos druids for their herbs and banking after a full load. This tactic can make over 100k-200k a trip. If you are keeping all the higher herbs, herb gloves from Fist of Guthix minigame (especially the higher levelled ones, such as Kwuarm gloves) can greatly increase your profits. Even though all the expensive herbs are (uncommon) drops from Chaos Druids, it is notable that Ranarrs tend to drop more frequently than the other expensive herbs.

Tips

  • Bring a fast weapon such as throwing knives (they are weak to ranged, but most by arrows) as there will most likely be multiple players at your location. Ranging is also recommended to ensure that you will attack a chaos druid first over other players.
  • Bring a teleport tab or home teleport to leave quickly for faster banking.
  • Wield the mithril bolts that you get to save space.
  • Keep all law runes. These help for a quick escape if you run out of them.
  • Always keep a beast of burden familiar on hand.
  • Clean the grimy herbs if you want to get some Herblore experience.
  • You can make Fishing potions and Prayer potions to save inventory and get Herblore XP.
  • Mixing some herbs, like Irit, into the vial of water dropped can also increase profits.
  • Bringing a Ring of Wealth will not affect herb drop rates, as it only affects the rare drop table, and all the expensive herb drops are uncommon.
  • With 41 Summoning, using a Macaw familiar can be very useful. It can improve herb drops, and randomly produce herbs.
  • Killing the druids in the Edgeville Dungeon resource dungeon is incredibly handy due to the large amount of druids and the fact that it is not considered Wilderness, although many more players will be there. Bring an antipoison for the Poison spiders.

Trivia

  • A Chaos Druid was controlling the three-headed green dragon in Learning the Ropes.
  • In RuneScape Classic, a PKer could look like a chaos druid by equipping Zamorak Robes and having a beard with white hair. It was the PKer's hope that an inattentive player would attack the PKer, get skulled, and the PKer would kill the victim before he escaped Edgeville Dungeon, or to launch a surprise attack.
