Fighting Nomad and Gielinor

Items needed: Combat equipment and high healing food
Items recommended: High tier shield for the use of resonance, stat boosting potions, Guthix Staff, debuff spells, beast of burden, power armour (armour value doesn't matter)
  • If at any point you wish to leave, go back to the entrance and select "quick leave". When you return, you will resume the fight at the beginning of that phase.

If you die, your gravestone spawns outside Death's Hourglass.

First combat phase

  • Dwindle away Nomad's health, and move away from the centre of the bridge to avoid Gielinor's hand. Also move away from shadows that appear on the ground to avoid rapid powerful magic attacks.


  • Run around the area and constantly use the 3 abilities made available.
    • Fire Blast when Rorarii are present
    • Shield Dome when Gladii are present
    • Shadow Stalk when Scutarii are present
  • Target Capsarii last as they can heal Xenia when no other targets are available.

Second combat phase

  • In addition to the previous phase's attacks, when Nomad teleports you near him and orders you to 'face his wrath', switch to your shield to use Resonance to negate any and all damage from the attack.


  • Go directly north, south, east and west of Gielinor. Each time provoking him and quickly getting out of the way, to then use Scythe on the hand, and finally claim the released spirit.

Third combat phase

  • In addition to the previous phases' attacks, Nomad will create a clone of himself when he reaches half health. Kill them both (you might kill Nomad first, in which case you will move on).


  • Quickly and without stopping, run around the area anti-clockwise, releasing the souls as you get in the middle of a group of them. Make sure to get over half of the initial total number of spirits. The more souls you release, the more powerful the attack reflected onto Gielinor will be. Once all souls have been released, continue circling until Gielinor stops firing the beam, then shield yourself from Gielinor's attack with the ability, in order to reflect the damage onto Gielinor. You will have to repeat this process a few times.

Final combat phase

  • In this phase, Nomad will only be using rapid melee attacks. Kill him by any means, if using Ranged or Magic, then you can run around the room to avoid damage from Nomad, using Surge to gain distance. Watch out for Gielinor's attacks.


  • Choose who ends Gielinor.
  • Decide Nomad's fate.
  • After the cutscene, speak with Death.
  • Choose Zanik's fate.
  • Quest complete!
