OSRS Lizardman Guide

Lizardmen are a mid-level reptilian humanoid that can be found in various locations across Kourend. In order to attack a lizardman, players must have at least 5% shayzien favour. Lizardmen are the weaker variant of the Lizardman Shaman and therefore do not posses the ability to drop the Dragon Warhammer. They also do not share their ability to jump to the players location as seen in the CoX Guide.

In this OSRS Lizardman guide, we will take look at some of the most efficient strategies to kill this slayer monster.

Where to kill Lizardmen in OSRS?

The Lizardmen are found exclusively in Kourend. However, there is multiple different locations players can choose to fight them, these are as follows:

  • Lizardman Canyon (east & west side).
  • Lizardman Settlement
  • Kebos Swamp
  • Battlefront
  • Molch
  • Shayziens’ Wall

The lizardman Canyon (east side) is by far the best place to kill Lizardmen. With 44 individual Lizardmen spawns, all close by, they can be cannoned extremely effectively.

Lizardman Guide FAQs

Below is some of the most frequently asked questions by players reading this strategy guide and looking to kill Lizardmen for the first time.

Are Lizardmen worth killing?

Yes, especially if you have received them as a slayer task. As there are large volumes of them found in close proximity to each other and in a multi-combat zone. This makes them very good for cannoning and efficient experience rates.

What are Lizardmen weak to?

Lizardmen are weak to both ranged and melee attack styles. They have negative stab defence, so if you are choosing to use melee, a good stab weapon such as the rapier is useful here.

Do Lizardmen Shaman count as Lizardmen?

Yes, if you are assigned a Lizardman task, you can use it to kill both Lizardmen or Lizardmen Shamans. Including the Shamans found inside of CoX.

Do you need Shayzien Armour for lizardmen?

No, Shayzien Armour is not required or recommended for killing Lizardmen. It is however, recommended when killing Lizardman Shamans.
