Minotaur

From Old School RuneScape Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Minotaur are found on level one of the Stronghold of Security. They drop the right skull half, one of four parts of the Skull sceptre. These monsters are great for training due to their low defence, but have high attack damage making them dangerous for un-equipped players. They can be found at level 12 with 10 hitpoints, and at level 27 at 22 hitpoints.

It is recommended to have a Defence level above 15 when fighting minotaurs with melee.

Minotaurs are a common method of Ranged training as they can be safespotted and commonly drop iron arrows.
