1.0 - Introduction
Zamorak Warriors, not the first monsters you think about when you are looking for a good place to train some combat. However, you might find that killing these unholy warriors is actually pretty rewarding.
2.0 - Location
Zamorak Warriors are located on 2 places in Runescape. The Ourania Altar cave, where they attack harmless runecrafters is the first one. This spot is not very good for training though, as there are also some monsters that attack with magic and ranged walking around in the cave.
The second spot, the spot this guide is about, is located in the Chaos tunnels. This spot can be reached by entering the rift just northeast of the Zamorak Mage north of Edgeville. You will be transported to a room filled with Giant Rock Crabs, from here take the portal you are standing next to and you will find yourself in a room with Fire giants. Run to the far west of the room and take the portal there and you have reached the room with Zamorak Warriors.
Remember the Chaos Tunnels are multicombat and the portals can teleport you to a random room. Don't hesitate to use a protection prayer when needed and have the Zybez Chaos Tunnels Map ready so you will be able to find your way in case you are teleported to a random room.
3.0 - Requirements and Recommendations
There are no requirements to enter the Chaos Tunnels.
These would be ideal stats to train here:
Defence: 70+ (the higher, the better)
Prayer: 43 (to use protect from melee while running past the Fire Giants)
Summoning: 68 (to make use of the bunyip familiar)
The defence level is the biggest requirement as you will be hit quite a lot with a lower level. This spot can be used with lower stats though, even by pures with level 1 defence. However, 43 prayer is a MUST when training here with low defence.
4.0 - Equipment
You can of course change the equipment where needed. If you have better armour, use it! If you're getting hit too much at the Zamorak Warriors, try looking into better armour.
It is recommended to use a bunyip or bones to peaches tablets for healing.
Inventory when using a bunyip for healing:
Inventory when using bones to peaches:
The sword seen in the images is the Enhanced excalibur. This sword is recommended as it boosts your defence level a lot and can be used for a bit of healing.
When your defence level is lower than 70 it is recommended to use the protect from melee prayer.
Pure/low defence set-up (using protect from melee):
4.1 - Summoning Familiars
The Chaos Tunnels are a great place to make use of summoning familiars and gather charms. It is multicombat so your fighting familiar will be able to help you kill the Zamorak Warriors.
It is recommended that anyone with a summoning level of 34 or higher makes use of a familiar when training at the Zamorak Warriors. You will have to choose between a healing or fighting familiar. When using a fighting familiar you should use bones to peaches to heal.
Healing Familiars (familiars on top are the most recommended)
Unicorn Stallion (level 88 summoning) - its scrolls can be used to heal you so that you can stay in the Chaos Tunnels almost indefinitely.
Bunyip (level 68 summoning) - Heals you for 20 life points every 15 seconds.
Fruit Bat (level 69 summoning) - its special will provide you with fruit which you can eat to heal.
Void Spinner (level 34 summoning) - Heals you for 10 life points every 15 seconds.
Fighting Familiars (familiars on top are the most recommended)

Lower level fighters you can use are the Talon Beast, Adamant Minotaur, Obsidian Golem and Spirit Graahk/Kyatt/Larupia.
5.0 - Tactics
When using the protect from melee prayer just stand in the middle of the room, turn auto-retaliate on and enjoy the show.
When you're not using the protection prayer stand directly on the portal you entered the room from. You'll find that you are only attacked by one Warrior at a time! Sometimes a Warrior will stand next to you because you moved a bit when taking the drops. Just kill this one first and you'll have only one warrior attacking you again. When the Warriors are still aggressive but not attacking you because you're standing behind the wall just run around the room and stand on the portal again.
Stand next to, or on the portal so that you will only be attacked by one NPC at a time.
When the Zamorak Warriors stop being aggressive take the portal back to the Fire Giants (turn on the protect from melee prayer if needed) and run to the far east of the room. Ones the Fire Giants attack you you'll know that the monsters are aggressive again. Simply run back to the room with the Zamorak Warriors and take your spot again!
Running past the Fire Giants to make the Zamorak Warriors aggressive again. Take special note of the arrows on the minimap.
The Zamorak Warriors will be aggressive for 10 minutes in which your character will retaliate on them. During this time you can watch some TV, browse the internet, chat with people and other stuff that will make the training go by faster. Keep watching your Life Points though, as the Warriors can have some lucky hits. Under NO circumstances leave the computer. Not only is this against the rules, you may also find your character in Lumbridge (or Falador or Camelot) with no more than 3 items...
6.0 - Rewards and Experience
The drops you receive add up quite a bit. The cash drops (pick them up ones in a while and the various drops will have stacked), rune daggers (alch them) and rune scimitars are worth quite some money!
It all depends on luck but you will earn about 300k in loot an hour.
Let's take a look at the drop list again.

The red items are items you should pick up. The coins add up quite fast and the rune scimitars are worth a nice amount of money too.
The orange items are items you should alch. Rune daggers alch for 4800 gp and adamant longswords for 1920 gp.
Some inventories after a training session at Zamorak Warriors:
The combat experience received depends a lot on your combat stats, the weapon used and whether or not (super)potions are used.
The experience is the same as at most other combat training spot. Between 40k and 70k an hour, depending on you stats and the tactic used.
7.0 - Conclusion
I would like to conclude saying that Zamorak Warriors are a nice place to train combat, not crowded, some good experience and nice drops. I hope you enjoyed this guide and that it will help you with your future endeavours in the wonderful world of RuneScape.
