|Release date||27 February 2002 (Update)|
|Combat level||8, 145|
|A warrior touched by chaos.|
Dark warriors are found in the Dark Warriors' Fortress, a castle in level 12 to 16 Wilderness north-west of Edgeville. They are usually are more annoying than an actual threat to players, and have higher defence than their combat level suggests. Dark warriors are known to have the unique, but occasional drop of black maces and black med helms. Leaving the fortress, logging into a different world, or being taken away by a random event will cause them to become aggressive again. They are always aggressive, regardless of a player's combat level. During the wilderness rejuvenation update, as a method to increase the risk of stepping in the wilderness, the Dark warriors received a significant boost to their combat level. There are a mix of combat level 8 and 145 on the ground floor and only combat level 8 dark warriors on the first floor.
