Examine text It's a Spiritual mage

Spiritual Mages (level 120), are located in The Saradomin portion of the God Wars Dungeon, as well as in the center of God Wars Dungeon, just South of Bailey. They are commonly killed as Slayer tasks or for their drop of Dragon boots. You need a Slayer level of 80 to defeat them.


Spiritual mages are known uniquely for their drops of Dragon boots

Spiritual mages are also known as a common Slayer Task assignment. Many players favour this task as the benefit of training Slayer and their potential drop for Dragon boots are rewarding.

Dragon boot drop

A player receiving Dragon boots as a drop.


  • The Saradomin lair entrance is a less popular location for players to kill Spiritual mages as there are Saradomin minions of all combat types who ARE aggressive, thus making the Saradomin lair entrance a highly dangerous area.
  • Dragon boots drop odds in the past were some of the highest among rare monster drops; the odds of obtaining Dragon boots from Spiritual mages have been regulated to be dropped much less frequently.
  • Spirtual mages have very low armor and are quite easy to kill.
