A Rockslug is a Slayer monster that requires level 20 Slayer to kill. A bag of salt or a brine sabre is required to kill it. They are rarely killed due to their mediocre drops, which consists of low level ores and seeds. They may rarely drop the mystic gloves (light).
Locations[edit | edit source]
- Fremennik Slayer Dungeon (fairy ring code ajr)
- Lumbridge Swamp Caves
- Dorgesh-Kaan South Dungeon (fairy ring code ajq)
Strengths and weaknesses[edit | edit source]
Rockslugs can only be successfully killed with a bag of salt, or by the use of a brine sabre. If the bag of salt is accidentally used before the Rockslug is reduced to less than 5 hitpoints, it will still be used up but have no effect. It would be wise to bring a few extra because of this (or you buy "Slug salter" from a slayer master). If a Rockslug's health is reduced to 1 but a bag of salt is not used on it, the Rockslug will stop retaliating and wander off, which will not count as a kill, unless you or someone else uses a bag of salt on it, in which case whoever dealt the most damage to it will get the kill.
Ring of Wealth Method[edit | edit source]
Players who wish to utilize their Rings of Wealth in addition to another combat-enchancing ring may use the following method. When you redbar a Rockslug, it will change to a state where you must use a bag of salt on it in order to finally kill it. When it changes to this "salt-state," it will try to flee from you. However, if you begin attacking another Rockslug, the first "salt-state" one will freeze in place. In this way, you can redbar 5 or so Rockslugs by using your combat-enhancing ring, and then you may equip your Ring of Wealth before using bags of salt on the "salt-state" ones that are frozen in place. Using a bag of salt on each Rockslug in this way with your Ring of Wealth equipped should give you a chance at their rare drop table when the bag of salt finishes off the slug. In this way, you can avoid having to equip and un-equip your Ring of Wealth before you use a bag of salt on every "salted" Rockslug.
