Goraks are typeless melee-using monsters encountered during the Fairytale II - Cure a Queen quest, where they are slain for their claws which are an ingredient for the Magic essence potion.
As goraks within the Gorak Plane roll the gem drop table 100% of the time, it is one of the best monsters to kill for the shield left half with a drop rate of around 1 in 250 (while wearing a ring of wealth) while having Legends' Quest completed. The drop rate is further increased if Fairytale II - Cure a Queen has been completed. Because of this, it is suggested to bring a gem bag as they drop uncut gems extremely commonly.

Goraks use typeless melee, which means that Protect from Melee will not prevent or reduce damage. For every successful hit they make, a random stat of the player will be drained by one (except hitpoints). As such, armour with high crush defensive bonuses is recommended.
If a gorak successfully hits the player while any protection prayer is active, a message will appear in their chatbox saying "Your protection prayer doesn't seem to work!"
Several safespots are available in the Gorak Plane, but due to the high aggressive radius of goraks they may be difficult to use. One safespotting tactic is to use the southern walls of the inner ring, as they will get caught on the edges. If one attacks you from the south after respawning, run east/west until it can get caught on a corner, and then run back to the safespot.
The Gorak drop table is very unusual. Goraks in the Gorak Plane have access to two different drop tables. Goraks in the Gorak Plane usually drop from the Gorak Plane drop table. However, if the player is in the middle of doing an uninterruptible action such as teleporting or using the Telekinetic Grab spell, the Gorak will drop from the standard Gorak drop table instead. Other Goraks drop the standard Gorak drop table.
Drop rates based off a sample of 512 kills.
- ↑ The gem drop table is only accessed if the player is not doing an uninterruptible action.
