|Xeric's former artisan.|
Tekton is one of the bosses encountered in the Chambers of Xeric. He was the artisan that created the chambers.
Based on his journal, Tekton was one of the few that was still loyal to Xeric after the majority of Great Kourend usurped him. He built many grand buildings to worship Xeric, though it is unknown if they are still around. He also oversaw the creation of the chambers. Xeric was pleased that Tekton gave him the ability to use cave magic, but was disappointed when everyone else began using it, especially the "nasty high priest". Xeric ordered him to destroy the temple, which he did, but only slightly in the event that Xeric changed his mind.
Xeric later took him into the caves and gave him immortality by putting his mind in a new, indestructible body. Xeric also enchanted his anvil. He was upset and confused to why Xeric's friends made fun of him and decided it was best to stay near the anvil to improve himself. He still waits near his anvil, working on himself so that he can be a faithful servant to Xeric when he returns.
Tekton is seen working with his magnetic anvil. As soon as someone gets near him, he will notice them and begin the fight. All players should use Protect from Melee when fighting Tekton.
Tekton is highly resistant and immune to Ranged and Magic attacks (his journal states this), as a result, Tekton will have to be killed with Melee only. The Vulnerability spell can still be casted to lower his defence by 10%. He still has very high Defence, so using a crush weapon or Verac's set is recommended against him.
Tekton will emit two different auras beneath him: orange, which is his non-enraged stance, and red, which is his enraged stance. Tekton's overall defence is lower when he has a red aura.
The special attacks of dragon warhammer or Bandos godsword are very useful to lower Tekton's high defence as well, as they both have unique effects against Tekton: The dragon warhammer will reduce his defence by 5% if the player fails to deal damage, and the Bandos godsword will reduce his defence by a minimum of 10 if the player fails to deal damage.
After being alerted to the team's presence, Tekton will move towards one player. He will stop when he reaches that player and starts attacking them. If Tekton attacks and no players are within melee range of him, he will return to the anvil. Otherwise, he will continue attacking for a prolonged duration before returning back to the anvil. When Tekton returns to the anvil, he heals himself slightly and sends out two "sparks" for each player in the room, dealing moderate damage in a 3x3 square. After finishing this, Tekton gets a red aura around him, before reverting back to orange.
Tekton will apply rapid stomp damage to players under him. However, this only applies when he moves, as he is static upon entering his attack stance. The pillars of smoke around his chamber can lightly damage players if they are on them.
