[FAQ] • [doc]

Zombies are a form of undead found all over Gielinor, appearing in several different locations, most often in graveyards, dungeons and tombs. Like Skeletons, they are the result of Necromancers reanimating the bodies of the dead.

Zombies have a wide variety of combat levels and appearances, but they generally attack with Melee, and have a low resistance to magical attacks, particularly fire spells.

Many types of zombies exist, including armoured zombies, undead ones, zogres, zombie hands, monkey zombies, zombie pirates, zombie swabs and dried zombies. When given a Slayer assignment for zombies, any zombie-class creature may be targeted, including those such as undead chickens and cows.

Many zombie locations are far from banks. For players wishing to slay zombies and bank their drops, the following zombies are close to banks:

  • Low-level zombies
    • The Draynor Sewers are moderately close to the Draynor Village bank.
    • The Wizards' Guild is very close to the bank in Yanille, but it requires level 66 Magic to enter. In the basement of the Wizards' Guild are eight zombies in a locked cage. This area works as a Magic training spot, but players have to use telekinetic grab to gather any drops, though most drops are worth less than the cost of the Law runes required. Items next to the fence can, however, be picked up via the looting interface. Simply drop an item next to the fence and pick it back up to open the interface.
  • Medium-level zombies

Champions' Challenge

Zombies are one of the 'races' who have a lesser champion in the Champions' Challenge Distraction and Diversion. To fight the Zombie Champion, the player must kill zombies until one drops a Champion's scroll, a very rare drop.

Whilst undead ones count towards a zombie slayer task, they do not drop Champion's scrolls.

Trivia

  • During the 2010 Hallowe'en event, hordes of zombies would spawn in the ruins in the Clan Wars free-for-all arena. Those zombies did not give experience when killed.
  • One of the various examines for a zombie is "Could his name be 'Lurch'?" This is a reference to the butler in The Addams Family, Lurch.
  • An update on 12 April 2010 made the sound of the zombies when they get hit much deeper than previously.
  • Zombies drop fishing bait commonly, as it is revealed in Let Them Eat Pie and Recipe for Disaster that fishing bait is actually maggots, which are often found on corpses.
