Giant skeleton (Shadow Dungeon)

From Old School RuneScape Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Giant skeletons are a more powerful variant of skeleton found in the Shadow Dungeon, which can be accessed using a ring of visibility during or after the Desert Treasure quest. They are seldom killed due to their significantly higher combat stats than regular skeletons, being located in a multicombat area, as well as lacklustre drops. As with most monsters in the Shadow Dungeon, they allow other monsters to pass through them.

Like other Undead, giant skeletons are susceptible to the effects of the Salve amulet and its variants, as well as Crumble Undead.
