Guardians of Armadyl are found only in the Temple of Ikov. If players wish to claim the Staff of armadyl, they must defeat all of the guardians in the room. Players can also talk to or kill a Guardian to obtain an Armadyl pendant if they lose theirs. Strangely, the symbol in the guardians of Armadyl's platebody is not the symbol of Armadyl, but of Saradomin. This could just be a mistake by Jagex, or this could simply imply that Armadyl and Saradomin are allies in the god realm, which is unlike the relationships of the other gods (such as the clear hatred, and even fear, between Zaros and Zamorak).
The Guardians of Armadyl are the only known human followers of Armadyl in the world of Gielnor.
