Twisted Banshee

This article is about the stronger variant. For the superior variant, see Screaming twisted banshee.

Twisted Banshees are stronger variants of banshees that require level 15 Slayer to kill. They are found exclusively within the Catacombs of Kourend, in a multicombat area. There is a safespot in the walkway between the two rooms. Players must wear earmuffs or a slayer helmet while fighting them in order to avoid the effects of their screams; which causes the player to take 7 damage and have their stats greatly reduced in Attack, Strength, Defence, Ranged, Magic, Prayer, and Agility with every attack received. They use magical melee, and their attacks are fairly accurate.

As they are undead, the Crumble Undead spell and the salve amulet do work on them.

They are popular with Ironmen players due to good experience rates for their level along with dropping generous amounts of herbs, pure essence and various rune equipment.

A dwarf multi-cannon cannot be used to kill Twisted Banshees.
