Gargoyles are Slayer monsters located in the Slayer Tower's top floor and basement, requiring 75 Slayer in order to be harmed. Those found in the basement are only available to players who are assigned gargoyles as their Slayer task. If they attempt to kill them off-task, Raulyn will prevent them from attacking.
Gargoyles, like rockslugs, cannot be killed normally. In order to kill a gargoyle, a rock hammer, a rock thrownhammer, or a granite hammer must be used when they reach 8 or lower Hitpoints. Normally, the item must be used on the gargoyle, but players can buy the "Gargoyle Smasher" perk from Slayer Masters for 120 Slayer points, which will automatically smash the gargoyle when it falls to 9 or lower Hitpoints, provided that the player has a rock hammer (or equivalent) in their inventory. The granite hammer will automatically smash gargoyles even without the perk if it is equipped.
Gargoyles can be safespotted near the doorway in the south-west area at the top floor in Slayer Tower or in the north-east corner of the basement behind an immovable bucket on the floor.
It should be noted that the gargoyles on the top floor of the tower are located after aberrant spectres, who drain players' stats if they are not wearing a Slayer helmet or nose peg. They may be avoided by using the Agility shortcut in the north-east from 1st floor[UK]2nd floor[US] to 2nd floor[UK]3rd floor[US], although this route takes longer. These gargoyles are susceptible to poison and venom; the basement ones are immune to both.
