Cave kraken are slayer monsters that are found in the Kraken Cove. They can only be attacked if players have them as a slayer assignment. To be assigned cave krakens, players require level 87 Slayer and 50 Magic.

These monsters, along with their boss variant, are the only monsters to drop the Kraken tentacle and the Trident of the seas.

In order to attack a cave kraken, a player must disturb a whirlpool, causing the cave kraken to surface. Magic is the only reliable way of dealing damage to them, as Ranged attacks are heavily reduced, and Melee cannot be used. Their projectile resembles Water Wave.

It's generally not recommended to kill cave krakens if the player can kill their boss variant, as they have extremely poor drops which does not cover the cost of the runes needed per cast. However, ironmen often kill cave krakens due to their more frequent uncharged trident drop.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Cave kraken use the same model as the Sea Troll Queen but it is recoloured and resized.
  • Cave kraken and their boss variant are similar to RuneScape 3's Strykewyrms, which can only be attacked while on a Slayer task and must be disturbed to fight.
