Examine A paladin of Ardougne

Paladins are monsters located in East Ardougne. They require level 70 Thieving to pickpocket, yielding 151.75 experience, 80 coins and 1 chaos rune per pickpocket. A group of paladins can be found in a small room on the 1st floor[UK] of King Lathas' castle, but access to the room also requires level 70 Thieving.


The Paladins of Ardougne are light-skined men with short, yellow hair and a yellow beard. They wear a steel plate mail body and matching legs. They wield an adamantite mace and hold either an adamantite square or kite shield.


Underground Pass

Three paladins are also encountered during the Underground Pass quest. They must be killed for the Coat of Arms they carry, which allows deeper access into the dungeon.
