Slayer task/Zygomites

From Old School RuneScape Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Zygomites can be assigned to level 60 combat and level 57 slayer by Chaeldar, Konar quo Maten, Nieve and Duradel. As an alternative to this task, the ancient zygomites can be killed on the fossil island.

Zygomites mostly use magic-based melee headbutt which can hit substantial amounts, but they occasionally use more powerful magic-based ranged attacks by shooting spores. Dragonhide armour is strongly recommended while fighting them, as the high Magic defence will reduce the chance of them hitting you. If praying against their attacks, Protect from Missiles is recommended, as their ranged attacks are stronger and more accurate than their melee attacks.
