King Scorpions are aggressive monsters found in the Dwarven Mine, the Lava Maze, in the Wilderness, and some areas on Crandor. They patrol the iron, mithril, adamantite, and copper rocks in the area north of the Mining Guild door, the coal and tin rocks west of the Falador house stairs, and the mithril and coal rocks on Crandor.

King scorpions will only attempt to use melee when they are aggressive towards the player. If they are attacked from a distance while pursuing a player, or if they are attacked first or provoked while not aggressive, they will only use ranged.


  • King scorpions were larger than ordinary scorpions in Runescape Classic, but are now the same size with a different colour scheme. However, the examine text remains unchanged and still mentions their size.
