Guthixians Unit Preview

guthixians symbol


The Guthixians are made up of 3 major races: humans, gnomes and dwarves. There's also the fairies but they have returned to Zanaris to preserve their own race. The Dwarves and Gnomes as the God Wars continued started to retreat under ground as well leaving the task to defend Guthix' ideals mostly to his human followers. These human followers who live like druids have established a reliable militairy order: The Void Knights.

For the campaign these void Knights will be crucial as other races will only supply man X amount of turns as long as you hold their settlements, so an example could be receiving one gnome rider and 2 gnome archers every 7 turns hat you hold Tree Gnome Village. Other powerfull units exist as well such as the Ents and Moss Gaints.

As usual, the video of the units in game is at the bottom of the article.

Dwarven Crossbowmen

These dwarf forces wear heavy armor from head to waist and use crossbows rather than hammers to keep their enemies at a distance. The dwarves can deploy some of the finest crossbowmen in all of gielinor.

Void Knight Stalkers

Rather than taking the enemies head on the stalkers prefer to use distance to their advantage to rain arrows on the enemy before sneaking behind enemy lines with their daggers.

Gnome Riders

gnome rider


The more experienced and elite units of the gnomes use javelins and spears to fight their foes on the battlefield. To increase their own mobility they ride on terrorbirds providing guthixian forces with much needed cavalry support.

Ents

ent


The ents are at first sight just trees until you see them open their eys and walk around or even more terrifying: using their branches to launch enemies in to the sky!

Moss Gaints

moss gaint


Moss gaints resemble the gaints deployed by Bandos but these gaints are made of leaves and trunk rather than meat and bones. The moss gaints are the most powerfull shock troops the Guthixians can deploy.
