Ghouls are found just west of Canifis, north of the swamp and west of the fairy ring code CKS. Though they may appear to be undead, and are often mistaken for such, they are in fact still alive and thus immune to the Crumble Undead spell. (This also renders them immune to the effects of the salve amulet and salve amulet (e).) A ghoul bone is needed to complete the Rag and Bone Man II.

Ghouls can be somewhat annoying to kill. When a ghoul has low hitpoints, it will stop attacking the player and retreat, allowing other ghouls to attack. Applying poison can be an effective method of killing the previous Ghoul whilst attacking the next one. However, due to their low accuracy and high HP, they are generally a good place for higher levels to train.

An efficient way to kill a Ghoul can be through mage or ranged, melee is optional but remember they do flee as they get low.
