General Graardor is the leader of the army of Bandos within the God Wars Dungeon. He is one of the last known surviving members of the Ourg race ready to play with Runescape account holders, a species of powerful ogre-like creatures who served Bandos’ armies, and which almost completely died out over the course of numerous wars.
Facing the general with the Character in your Runescape Account would be a tough decision. This will test the true might and durability of your abilities to stand against mighty boss like Graardor.
Facing the General’s Wrath
General Graardor can be fought inside Bandos’ Stronghold in the God Wars Dungeon. He has no weakness and moderately high defense, and cannot be stunned or poisoned. He attacks with a powerful arm thrust that can frequently hit over 1500 damage. He also has a Ranged attack that is capable of hitting all players in the room for up to 500+ damage.
Additionally, he has three minions: Sergeant Strongstack, who uses melee; Sergeant Steelwill, who uses Magic; and Sergeant Grimspike, who uses Ranged. Since the update on 28 January 2013 increasing Graardor’s maximum hit by 800-900 and the ease of K’ril Tsutaroth, he became the second most popular God Wars boss, with the prior having full worlds and several people attempting to take said worlds every hour. He is the only monster in the game to drop the Bandos hilt, used to construct the popular Bandos godsword. Because he is the second most popular God Wars Dungeon boss, the supply of Bandos hilts is the second highest of all godsword hilts. He drops the highly coveted parts of the Bandos armour set, making competition fairly intense.
Taking Caution in Facing the General in Runescape Account
Graardor’s melee attack can deal large amounts of damage, up to 2200+. In addition, he may perform a ranged attack by punching the ground with his right fist creating a shock wave that hits everyone in the room.
General Graardor has very high range defense. It is not advised to use this combat style when fighting him, as even those using ascension crossbows will struggle to hit him.
To reach General Graardor, players must enter the Bandos encampment of the God Wars Dungeon to the north-west, requiring 70 Strength. To enter his lair, the player needs to have a Kill count of 40 Bandos followers, with goblins and spiritual rangers being the weakest followers of Bandos.
