Black Knights, also known as the Kinshra, are human warriors found mainly in their fortress. They are central to the Black Knights' Fortress quest, and have a max hit of 5 damage.

Black Knights are some of the oldest non-player characters in RuneScape. When the game was first released, Black Knights were the strongest foes in RuneScape at level 46, and only three of them existed.

You can also kill them for points after beating the Wanted! quest. The points signify your white knight rank. As a player's rank gets higher, they can purchase more white equipment.

Like most NPCs equipped with armour and weapons, they are harder to kill than their level suggests and can kill lower levelled players with ease, hitting constant 5's through even adamant armour, although they won't really pose a threat to mid-high levelled players and would be more of an annoyance instead. Safe-spotting them with magic attacks are the best way to deal with them, though a strong melee weapon works just as well.

Locations Edit

Aggressiveness Edit

The aggressiveness of a Black Knight depends on its location.

  • Black Knights in most overworld areas (such as near towns and cities) aren't aggressive.
  • Black Knights in most areas of their fortress (battlements, towers) are aggressive.
  • Black Knights in the wilderness are aggressive.
  • Black Knights in the Taverley dungeon are aggressive.
