- You should be sure to read the God Wars Dungeon - Introduction before even contemplating visiting Bandos's Stronghold.
Like the rest of the God Wars Dungeon, Bandos's Stronghold is a terribly dangerous place. Please only bring equipment that you're not awfully attached to.
Few have even heard of the god called Bandos. For many centuries he has been thought to be an ancestor of the ogres, perhaps even the beast that claimed the lands of the Feldip Hills and Jiggig. Now that the God Wars Dungeon has defrosted, though, scribes across RuneScape are puzzled by this old god's reappearance.
Bandos has never been worshipped by civilised races, but is occasionally revered by ogres and other unsavoury creatures. During the god wars he allied himself with different factions at different times, seeming to revel in bloodshed for its own sake. Adventurers heading into his Stronghold are likely to discover just how brutal his armies were...
Points of Interest
The entrance to the Stronghold is barred by a gong that will only ring for the strongest of visitors. To gain access to Bandos's Stronghold you will need a hammer and a Strength level of at least 70.
Because of the natural brutality of the followers of Bandos, it is recommended that you come prepared for melee. Be warned, though: even Bandos has a use for mages and rangers.
If you manage to slay forty of Bandos's followers, you will earn access to his general's quarters, where you will find out just how hard a true giant can hit...
If you need evidence that the god wars were a much harsher time than modern day, look no further than this enormous beast. General Graardor is most likely the last of the Ourg race, but it is safe to assume that during the god wars he was truly favoured by Bandos. His massive frame is well stretched with armour and, like a true devotee of the carnage of close combat, he fights almost exclusively with his fists.
Strongstack has fought in Bandos's name for much of his life, and is unlikely to give up any time soon. If one thing remains unchanged about goblins, it is their love of combat.
Sergeant Steelwill leads his tribe of goblins with strength of character and a vicious flail. No doubt many goblin leaders of modern times would like to have his 'charisma'.
It's thought that Grimspike was once cast out from his tribe for his excessive brutality. What better place to find his family than in the arms of Bandos's legions?
There are no quest starts in Bandos's Stronghold.

- If you are extraordinarily lucky, you may find that General Graardor or his bodyguards drop shards of the godsword. The hilt that the most determined ork smiths designed for that blade is only dropped by General Graardor.
- The warriors of Bandos will be less inclined to attack you if you are wearing some of their armour.
