General Graardor is one of the five bosses found inside of the God Wars dungeon. He resides within Bandos' Stronghold, located in the northwest corner of the dungeon. Players who wish to enter the stronghold will need a hammer in order to open the stronghold's door. The dungeon itself can be accessed by using the Trollheim teleport and navigating down the mountain torwards Trollheim's northern exit. Additionally, players can directly teleport to the entrance by using a ferocious ring or a GWD tablet.
In order to enter General Graardor's chamber, players will have to kill a total of 10 bandos minions scattered throughout the dungeon or in the Bandos' Stronghold. Bandos minions will be aggressive towards the player if they are not wearing any bandos items. The door to the chamber will only open and allow the player who has the required killcount to pass through, therefore all members of a team must have the required amount of kills in order to enter. If any player dies while in Graardor's chamber, then their items will spawn on the floor outside of the chamber's entrance rather than inside where they originally died.
Players can choose to fight any of the God Wars dungeon bosses as an instance by right-clicking on the door to the boss chamber and creating one before entering. In an instance, other players can only join if they know the name of the instance originally created.
General Graardor has a couple mechanics he will use throughout the fight and is aided by his three minions: Sergeant Strongstack, who uses melee attacks; Sergeant Steelwill, who uses magic attacks; and Sergeant Grimspike, who uses ranged attacks. Graardor himself utilizes two different attacks. The first is a multi-target melee attack where Graardor swings his fist at the player, hitting any targets within a 3x3 tile area. The second is a multi-target ranged attack where Graardor slams the ground with his fists, sending out a slow-moving projectile towards the player. As the fight progresses, Graardor's attack speed will gradually increase depending on the amount of hitpoints he has remaining. Additionally, he can also buff the attack speed of his minions, in which he will pause to kneel and shout a phrase, surrounding his minions in a veil of blue electricity that deals 5 damage to them.
