West of the main entrance ladder is the Ice spider cave. It contains 2 Ice Arrows Ice Arrows spawns at the end of the cave and 3 Ice spider Ice spiders throughout the length of the cave. Upon picking up the Ice arrows players will be teleported to the entrance of the cave. Which greatly increases the difficulty for players who are attempting to obtain several of them.

"Suddenly your surroundings change"
NOTE: Once a player has unlocked the door to the Ice spider cave they will not have to re-pull the trapped lever.

The Fire Warrior of Lesarkus

West of the trapped lever is a locked door and a Lever Bracket. In order to unlock the door players must use the LeverLever item on the door. Players must then quickly pull down the lever, otherwise the lever will despawn and you will have to get another.

NOTE: Once a player has unlocked the door they will not have to reassemble the lever and pull it again.

The Fire Warrior of Lesarkus is in a caged off area and can only be killed if a player ranges them with at least an initial ice arrow. Upon killing him players will be able to open the door near him and progress further into the dungeon.

Going north of where you were teleported is a ladder that will take you to a building that is located north of McGrubor's Wood. However, players need the Shiny key Shiny Key in order to exit the building.

The shiny key is located east and then south of the ladder, where the 4 Lesser Demons are located.

Between the area of the ladder and shiny key is the Guardian of Armadyl room. It can only be accessed if players push the Odd looking wall.

Guardians of Armadyl room

Temple of Ikov dungeon14

Guardians of Armadyl room

This room houses the Staff of Armadyl Staff of Armadyl. Which the Guardians of Armadyl have been guarding for generations. The guardians themselves are not combative. However, If a player attempts to take the staff or upsets them by choosing dialogue that speaks of their allegiance to Lucien players will be engaged in combat.

During the Temple of Ikov quest, players who side against Lucien will receive the Pendant of Armadyl Pendant of Armadyl.



  • Unlike in RS2/3 when a player drops their lit candle in the room with the Boots of lightfootedness they will not be expelled from the room.
  • The unstable bridge will only collapse when players attempt to open the door when they are not wearing the Boots of lightfootedness.
  • Inside the Guardians of Armadyl room is also a Bowl of water. Via dialogue with the Guardian of Armadyl players may be splashed with water to be cleansed. It is reasonable to believe that is why that item spawn is in this room.
