Mummies are the only non-boss monsters that can drop Ancient staves, although this is a rare drop. As of the Wilderness Rejuvenation update, the Chaos Fanatic and Thermonuclear smoke devil also drop the staff. If you've purchased an Ancient staff from Eblis and lost it and do not want to buy one from another player, killing these monsters is your only choice. The mummies that drop Ancient Staves are in Jaldraocht Pyramid south of Bandit Camp, and can only be accessed once the four Diamonds of Azzanadra have been recovered during Desert Treasure. It is worth noting that mummies do not exist outside of the desert in Old School Runescape, as the Chaos Tunnels were added in 2008.
Strengths and weaknessesEdit
The level 100 mummies can deal moderate damage for their level, hitting a maximum of 20 Hitpoints. The level 110 mummies are slightly stronger, with a max hit of around 22, and can hit consistently even through strong Melee Defence. They aren't too dangerous, but if necessary, players can use Protect from Melee reduce damage taken.
Mummies are undead, which means that wearing a Salve amulet (e) provides a significant Combat boost. Mummies are primarily weak to fire magic spells. When hit by a fire spell, the mummy catches on fire, although this effect does not cause any more damage than the spell itself. When a burning mummy is killed by a fire spell, the mummy turns into a level 96 'Mummy ashes' standing, charred corpse, and then collapses and disappears, with the mummy's drops then appearing.
