King Sand Crab

From Old School RuneScape Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
This article is about the stronger variant found in the Catacombs of Kourend. For the normal variant found on the coast of Hosidius, see Sand Crab.

​King Sand Crabs are aggressive monsters that look like sandy boulders while disguised, but attack when walked by. They are found inside the Catacombs of Kourend in the southeast section of the dungeon, as well as the Crabclaw Caves found south of the Woodcutting Guild.

Unlike regular Sand Crabs, King Sand Crabs have strong defensive and offensive stats. Although not as dangerous as their combat level suggests, players should not consider them harmless like their lesser siblings.
