The Khazard warlord is the "boss" that players have to fight during the Tree Gnome Village quest. He drops two of the Orbs of protection needed for the Spirit tree. He is a very dangerous foe armed with a Khazard warhammer, and can hit very accurately up to 9 damage. He is also wearing a Khazard platebody and a dark coloured Spiny helmet without the spikes. Even though he attacks with a warhammer, he has the attacking speed of a scimitar. During Tree Gnome Village, the player confronts the warlord, and demands the orbs from him. The Warlord refuses and then attacks the player. When the player has killed the warlord, they can search the warlord's satchel and find the two remaining orbs. The player then needs to bring these back to King Bolren in order to complete the quest. It is advised to have adamant armour or better when fighting him.
The location of the Khazard Warlord.
Low level players should strongly consider bringing food and prayer potions if they plan to use melee, and even then may not be able to kill him.
He may be safespotted with ranging or magic by stepping out of his area boundary, forcing him to flee from the player. If he is trapped along the northwestern side of the large mound, he can be safespotted from the southeastern side of the mound without him moving - he must be trapped on the tile to the left of the tree on the northwestern side of the mound.
He can be fought in the Nightmare Zone after the quest is complete.
The Khazard Warlord led the charge when General Khazard ordered his men to invade the Tree Gnome Village. When the player stole the first orb, and returned it to King Bolren, Bolren informs the player that the Warlord and his troops came in and killed gnome women (among them his wife) and some gnome children, and took the other two orbs. The player then is told to kill him.
- He can be found near West Ardougne, outside the gates north-west of the gnome battlefield.
- He has the same examine text and identical stats as General Khazard.
- When you defeat the Warlord, you get a message saying that his body evaporated into thin air, and that a screech could be heard. If you return to where you fought him after killing him once, he will re-appear. If you talk to the warlord after completing the quest, your character will say, "I thought I killed you!?" to which the Warlord will respond "Fool, warriors blessed by Khazard don't die, you can't kill that which is already dead. However, I can kill YOU!" and you will battle him once more.
