Tormented Wraith Hunting Guide
This area has been rated as HIGH-RISK. The Tormented Wraith is a formidable opponent and can deal heavy damage to unprepared players.
The Tormented Wraith is a vengeful spirit that roams the parallel spirit world version of the Dark Warrior's Fortress unlocked after completing the Summer's End quest. It is unique in that it can only be harmed if you are wearing a form of the BLACK armour and weapon set. You have limited choices for armour and weapons to suit your style of attack, which will be discussed later.
Minimum and Recommended Levels
The following recommendations are by no means a requirement. It depends on your individual ability, and the amount of players participating. Below are some guidelines to take into consideration:
Minimum Suggested Levels
Preparing for Battle
You will need a variety of items to successfully kill the Tormented Wraith. They are listed below:
What To Bring:
REQUIRED BLACK ARMOUR
For your armour and weapon setup, you MUST be wearing black items in the helmet, chest, leggings, weapon, AND shield slots in order to be allowed to attack the wraith. The slots that require black armour or weapon pieces are highlighted in the picture below.
Permitted Items in Each Slot:
Free choice: Cape, Necklace, Gloves, Boots, Ring
It is possible to use the Elite Black equivalents that are obtained during the While Guthix Sleeps quest. The elite black platelegs give less negative attack bonuses to magic and ranged than their normal counterparts. Two-handed black weapons DO count as taking up both the hand and shield slots. Note that you CANNOT use black dragonhide armour whether or not you choose to range the wraith.
Getting to the Tormented Wraith
Use a Glory Amulet or other form of Edgeville teleport to go to Edgeville Bank, and follow the green route. Alternatively, you can teleport to Varrock and run from there (blue route), or use the Bounty Hunter teleport to come via the red route. If you have Ancient Magicks, you can use the Dareeyak teleport to reach the ruins just northwest of the Dark Warriors' Fortress (purple route).
Once inside the fortress, go into the central outdoor area and stand somewhere in the green square (shown below). Right-click "operate" Jennica's Ring while equipping it and you will be teleported to the Spirit Realm.
It is wise to have one of your black items unequipped before entering to avoid being attacked immediately after entry. Take your time to prepare inside the Spirit Realm; you are totally safe from the wraith if you aren't wearing all of your black items. Once you're ready for the fight, simply wear the item again.
As shown in the picture below, simply face the Tormented Wraith head on with "Protect from Melee" prayer active. Use the appropriate boosting prayers for the attack style you are using. Although there used to be safespots for ranging or maging, they were removed from the game in 2009.
If at any time you need to retreat to safety, open the door, walk one square inside, and close it, else the wraith may follow you inside. Unequip one black item in between kills to avoid taking hits by surprise when it respawns. You can exit the Spirit World area at anytime by either climbing up one of the ladders in the castle or leaving through the front door.
You can use the Elixir (with 85 Prayer) on a Spirit Shield to create a Blessed Spirit Shield. If you don't have 85 Prayer, you can talk to Brother Jered in the Monastery, who will charge you a large sum of money for the work. If you don't want to use it for a shield, you can sell it on the Grand Exchange for a nice profit! For a full list of the wraith's drops, view the Tormented Wraith Bestiary entry.
