Commander Zilyana is one of the bosses found in the God Wars Dungeon within the Saradomin Encampment, and one of the last surviving Icyene. To gain access to her chamber, players must kill 40 Saradominists, you also need 2 ropes to access the Saradomin Encampment. She uses rapid and accurate Melee and Magic attacks, which can hit up to 27 each. Her magical attack also hits twice similar to the Dragon Dagger special attack, Puncture; therefore, it is very important to use Protect from Magic while wearing high-level melee armour to tank her melee attacks when melee'ing or utilise the hit-and-run tactic with Ranged. It is possible to freeze Zilyana with Magic such as Ice Barrage or Entangle, but note that she has VERY high Magic Defence and most magical armour provides very little Defence bonuses, which makes maging the most dangerous and least favorable option.

BodyguardsEdit

Fighting TacticsEdit

It is recommended to use a Verac's set or Godswords as warriors and Diamond bolts (e) with your best crossbow as rangers. Zilyana will lose Hitpoints faster in team, so Ruby bolts are not recommended.

Following a patch on the 24th October 2013, Zilyana is also weak to Ice spells and the Zamorak godsword.

Zilyana will target the person who does the first attack, but if that person does not attack Zilyana for couple of seconds, then Zilyana will switch to another target who is attacking her. Having one ranger in the team will make the kill faster and save the supplies of all players. The ranger should hit Zilyana first and continue with the hit-and-run method, and while Zilyana is following the ranger, meleers will crush Zilyana without having to tank her melee attacks.

Note that Zilyana also switches to a new target if the player who she is following is not doing any damage (hitting 0's) for a certain period of time, so it is recommended that the ranger use the best weapon available to them, preferably an Armadyl crossbow with Diamond bolts (e) as well as a Ranged level of at least 85 and the Eagle Eye prayer so as to reliably inflict damage upon Zilyana. The Armadyl crossbow also has a special attack, Armadyl Eye, which will double the player's overall accuracy (level, weapon, gear accuracy), which gives an increased chance of inflicting damage upon Zilyana, further increasing the ranger's chance of luring her.

TriviaEdit

  • While pretending to form an alliance with Armadyl, Commander Zilyana stole the Armadyl crossbow from Kree'arra during the God Wars, keeping it as a trophy of her cunning.
  • At Old School RuneScape's first birthday event, players could speak to Commander Zilyana, resulting in the following dialogue:
    • Player: Greetings, Zilyana.
    • Zilyana: Commander, if you don't mind.
    • Player: I don't, Zilyana.
    • Zilyana: Bah, find me some more cake. oh and FIND THE GODSWORD!
    • Player: I'll err... get some more cake alright?
