Men are monsters found all over Gielinor. There are several in and around Lumbridge immediately where the player first starts. As such, they are likely to be among the first RuneScape Classic NPCs that the player will encounter.
Combat and Thieving training[edit | edit source]
For many players, these are the first monsters that they will kill. Men are commonly trained on by all combat levels. Many players also kill them for the unidentified herbs, which are commonly dropped by slain men.
The most efficient place to kill men is inside of the building north of Edgeville bank where there are four of them. The bank is just seconds away and allows players to bank loot very quickly.
They can be pickpocketed at level 1 Thieving. When pickpocketed, they yield 3 coins per successful attempt, also granting 8 Thieving experience. The coins that they provide along with their low hitpoints and max damage against the player being only 1 make them an ideal source of coins and items for new players.
One strategy noted is to pickpocket them in Lumbridge until they kill you, and when you respawn in Lumbridge, simply pick your coins up and continue thieving.
