Please add tips to the subpage, rather than the article below.
This article is about the slayer monster. For the superior variant, see Marble gargoyle. However, for the bosses, see Grotesque Guardians.

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 9 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.

Because of the number of rune item drops, it is recommended to bring High Level Alchemy runes to reduce the frequency of banking and save inventory space.

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.

Drops[edit | edit source]

The average gargoyle kill is worth 4,262.23, excluding the loot from clue scrolls.
