Bellock, the crazed archaeologist is an insane individual who resides in the ruins south of The Forgotten Cemetery. He uses Ranged and Melee attacks and can perform a special attack where he throws explosive books that explode in a 3x3 area.

Bellock is one of the three Wilderness bosses that drop one of three shards of the Malediction ward and Odium ward.

Despite his high Magic Defence, he has a negligible Magic level, and thus has a weakness to Magic. This is because an NPC's Magic Defence is calculated off their Magic level, not their Defence level[1].

StrategyEdit

It is recommended to use Magic armour with the Trident of the seas whilst praying range and avoiding his special attack of explosive books as soon as he says, "Rain of knowledge!" The best way to avoid it is by keeping a considerable distance, and running towards him until you are two squares away from it (this way, you will avoid Melee damage), and repeating the same steps over and over, you will minimize the chance of receiving damage.

Another strategy is to use high Ranged Defence armour (like Torag's armour and Obsidian shield) with a Zamorakian hasta or Abyssal whip along side with the Protect from Melee prayer.

The fastest way to get there is by using the spell Dareeyak Teleport from the Ancient Magicks spellbook with 78 Magic or a Dareeyak teleport tablet.

QuotesEdit

One quote apart from the last one is said every time Bellock attacks the player.

  • "I'm Bellock - respect me!"
  • "Get off my site!"
  • "No-one messes with Bellock's dig!"
  • "These ruins are mine!"
  • "Taste my knowledge!"
  • "You belong in a museum!"
  • "Rain of knowledge!" - when using special attack
  • "Ow!" - upon death
