Unlike most other superior monsters, marble gargoyles use two combat styles: melee and ranged. Both its standard attacks can hit very high, though they are somewhat inaccurate. It is recommended to pray melee. Killing these with a ranged weapon is much easier, as you can pray ranged and negate all damage, excluding the special attack. You will need to carry the range item switches in your inventory while killing normal gargoyles if using this method.
In combat, the marble gargoyle will occasionally launch a grey ball towards the player. If hit by the projectile (magic), it will inflict up to 38 damage and immobilise the player for a few seconds. The message box states "You have been trapped in stone!" when this occurs. Players are able to avoid this attack by moving at least one tile away from their original position once the projectile is launched.
Drops[edit | edit source]
In addition to 100% drops and tertiary drops, superior slayer monsters will always roll 3 additional items, of which only 1 roll may be from the superior unique table. The other rolls are performed on the regular counterpart's table; their displayed drop chances represent a single roll.
The following drop rates are provided by Jagex, unless otherwise specified.
The average Marble gargoyle kill is worth 80,944.39.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Unlike other superior foes, the Marble gargoyle has a higher combat level than its boss variant, the Grotesque Guardians, despite being much easier to kill. This is due to the boss' hitpoint reduction in a later update.
