Ancient Wyverns are Slayer monsters that require a Slayer level of 82 in order to be harmed. They reside in the Wyvern Cave on Fossil Island and are the strongest species of Wyvern in Old School RuneScape. Like other Wyverns, they require an elemental, mind, dragonfire or ancient wyvern shield to be equipped in order to be slain.

In addition to being harder to fight, Ancient Wyverns share the ability with Taloned Wyverns to use an unblockable Ranged attack that resembles a lighter coloured Water Blast. This attack ignores Protection prayers and hits around 10, though they can also miss. They also appear to use all Melee attack types. When fighting them, the highest defensive armour the player can access is best suited to use against them.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • They appear to use all attack styles when using melee, depending on the animation they use: slashing when they use their talons, stabbing when they jab with their tail and crushing when they bite the target.
  • Originally, ancient wyverns had a significantly worse drop table. After player feedback, it was improved in an update the next day.
  • Upon release, the wyvern's Defence level was 220. This was reduced to 150 in an update on 18 January 2018. This also changed its combat level from 227 to 210.
  • Upon release, Ancient Wyverns only dropped a maximum of 12 seaweed spores. This was increased to 24 in an update on 12 July 2018.
