Commander Zilyana is the commander of Saradomin's forces in the God Wars Dungeon. She shares the same combat level but has different amounts of life points and max hits as the other God Wars generals. She has very high life points, only surpassed by Kree'arra and Nex. She also has the highest attack speed out of all of the god war bosses (attacking every 1.2 seconds) and has a max hit of 2200 with her magic and melee attacks, which combined with her fast attack speed, may prove fatal for inexperienced players.
Zilyana is known for dropping the Saradomin amulets, which with a chaotic remnant, can create more powerful amulets. Her best drops, however are the Saradomin hilt and off-hand Armadyl crossbow which are very expensive. The hilt is used to create one of the most popular godswords for players.
- Melee: Zilyana swings her sword at her target, which deals high damage.
- Magic: Zilyana's sword glows and hits the player(s) in her room with lightning. Due to her fast attack speed and the animation of this attack, Zilyana will also launch another attack mid-way through the animation.
One of the popular ways to kill Zilyana is with a spell with high-levelled magic equipment, as it provides decent magic and melee defence, which will ward off her attacks better. When using magic to kill Zilyana, players are recommended to stay on the western side of the room, one space away from the middle of the wall. This is because when she spawns, Growler is within range of Dragon Breath and players can kill him while they are killing Zilyana also. Players are recommended to save up adrenaline for Sunshine, otherwise kills will take too long and end up with shorter trips. When Zilyana and her guards are killed, return to the spot again to repeat for the next kill.
Occasionally, Growler may spawn one square too far or close to the player's spot. If he spawns too far, simply use Chain to damage him; if too close, move back one square so he can be attacked with Dragon Breath.
