Ice troll runts are the lowest levels of Ice trolls found on Jatizso and Neitiznot. They hit harder than their combat level suggests and also have the ability to hit through armour, similar to Verac the Defiled. Yak-hide armour DOES NOT reduce the troll's maximum hit. It is advised to use the Protect from Melee prayer whenever engaging more than one at a time. Ice troll runts are often found near Ice troll females; when they're not, they will be spread farther out.
Ice troll runts are not found on the northern isle with the rest of the ice trolls, but they are found in the cave systems (the eastern cave before completion of The Fremennik Isles, and the western cave after). They're also found south of the bridge to the troll isle just north-west of Neitiznot. In this location, they tend to engage in combat with the Honour guards just east of the bridge. While they prefer to attack the guards, they will attack a player if the player is their first target, until they grow tolerant of the player.
Players can get a drop with at least one successful hit, letting the guards do the rest of the work. This tactic can be used effectively with Ranged and Magic, to stay out of the way of hits.
This is an excellent choice for training Slayer if a player has received a troll task, as they have better drops than their Mountain troll counterparts and the player can complete the task more quickly and safely since they are constantly fighting with the guards. However, if a guard deals the finishing blow or attacks a runt as it dies in the same tick as the player, the Slayer experience gained will be halved.

- Players who have done the Fremennik Isles quest can make their own Yak-hide armour using items easily obtained on Neitiznot. It thus is very inexpensive and has good damage-stopping properties against trolls.
