The Tortoise (Testudines giganteus) are trained tortoises used by the Gnomes in battle. They can be found northwest of the Grand Tree in the Tree Gnome Stronghold, just north of the swamp. Trainer Nacklepen is in charge of their combat development.

FightingEdit

When fighting the tortoise with riders, the three gnomes take turns attacking the player. The mage sends a bluish spell towards the player. The ranger shoots a steel arrow at the player, and the tortoise attacks with the driver holding the reins if the player is within their meleeing range. Protection prayers aren't very effective because the riders use all 3 combat styles; however, the tortoises hit hardest with melee, so that prayer will stop the most damage.

When the mounted tortoise is slain, the riders, which consist of a level 5 Gnome Archer, Gnome Driver, and a Gnome Mage spawn. This can prove somewhat dangerous for low levelled (under 80 combat) players, as these gnomes are fairly accurate for their level. If the player runs away, however, they become unaggressive, and eventually disappear when the tortoise respawns.

If the player is not in multi combat only the Gnome Driver will attack the player. While in multi combat sometimes the gnomes don't attack the player or only attack one at a time. The Gnomes will cry out for "Dobbie", apparently referring to the slain tortoise. They will despawn after around 48 seconds if they are not killed before. The player will not receive combat or hitpoints experience for slaying these gnomes.
