Goblins are generally weak monsters who are popular for combat training for players with lower combat levels, they are especially useful for training melee and magic.

Locations

Goblins can be found in various places, including:

Champions' Challenge

A player transformed into a Goblin.

Goblins are one of the 'races' that have champions in the Champions' Challenge Distraction and Diversion. To fight the Goblin Champion, the player must kill goblins until one drops a Champion's scroll, a very rare drop.

Drops

The labels 'rare' and 'very rare' are relative in this section. Most items are very common compared to a much rarer item such as a shield left half. Rarity also depends on which goblin is killed. For instance, level 1 goblins (around Lumbridge) are more prone to drop bronze bolts, cabbage, chef's hats, and mind runes compared to the Goblin Village goblins.

Trivia

  • The media of the Runescape homepage shows a picture of updated goblins.

The updated goblins as seen on the RuneScape cinematic trailer.

  • Some common goblins have a "talk" option such as the one in the hay barn in Draynor near Mabel. However, upon talking to them, the game box will say "The goblin doesn't have anything interesting to say."
  • Some of the goblins in Goblin Village appear to be smoking cigars.
  • Prior to the Evolution of Combat, the goblins with the flags would run from players. As a result of this, it contradicted their examine text, which was "A soldier to the death." These goblins also had much lower hitpoints than the other goblins in the dungeon, only having 3 hitpoints. With the Evolution of Combat update, these goblins' combat stats were increased to match the other ones and they do not run away from players anymore.
