There are many guards in Gielinor, usually in populated, major cities, such as Falador, Varrock, Ardougne, and others. Guards also patrol the area just south of the wilderness ditch at Edgeville, as well as at the Burthorpe Castle.
Their level ranges from 19-37, and they are quite weak. All guards are not aggressive unless they are attacked first or are provoked by players pickpocketing. Varrock Guards have 22 hitpoints. In Deadman mode, there are unique level 1337 guards who are able to hit up to 30 with a very high accuracy (Melee and Ice Barrage). They are capable of Tele Blocking and negating Prayer completely. These guards will kill anyone who enters a safe zone with a PK skull instantly. The combat level is a reference to leetspeak.
Armour and weaponryEdit
They wear an iron chainbody and a bronze medium helmet as armour. Their melee weaponry consists mostly of bronze swords and bronze battleaxes. Some guards have ranged gear and wear hard leather armour. This makes them one of the easiest non-player characters for players to imitate.
Varrock guards wield only swords and have unique armour.
Guards are also a popular clue scroll drop monster due to their low level and ability to drop medium clue scrolls. Completion of the medium Falador Diary allows the player to have a 20% increased chance of receiving a clue scroll drop from guards in Falador.
A recommended way to efficiently thief from Guards is to complete the Recruitment Drive quest, setting your spawn to Falador, and pickpocket Falador Guards until you die, Once you die, run straight up and pick up any coins that you died with.
