|One of King Tyras's men.|
Tyras guards can be found at the Tyras Camp in Tirannwn. Tyras guards are all equipped with a Steel Halberd as a weapon, therefore a player can be attacked either next to the Guard or one square away. A Tyras Guard is fought during the Regicide quest.
A Tyras Guard can hit up to 15 and though there are a few "safe spots", his halberd can reach over most of them, so food is strongly advised. Protect from melee will prevent a Tyras guard from damaging the player, however those lacking prayer levels and/or points will need another strategy. Magic or Ancient Magicks can be dangerous to use because most robes have low defence and there is a lack of safe spots, but it has proven to be effective. If using Ancient Magicks, a player can attack with ice spells so the Guard cannot move, which is highly effective because of his weakness to Magic, and binding the guard results in most if not all damage being avoided during the fight. Players as low as 13 Magic (to cast Fire strike) should have little difficulty dispatching a Tyras guard provided they can find a safespot.
Alternatively, a player with high melee stats (60+) along with a decent weapon and armour may be able to successfully fight a Tyras guard hand-to-hand.
