Unicorns wander around forested areas in RuneScape. On members servers, unicorns drop the unicorn horn, which are used in Herblore to make anti-poison potions. Unicorns are also one of the oldest monsters in the game, which appeared initially during the beta of RuneScape Classic. They are also one of the most updated monsters, having been graphically updated four different times.

They respawn slowly, at a rate of ~53 seconds. Due to this, it is advisable to farm them in the Kourend Woodland, kill Unicows instead, or world-hop in between kills.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The taxidermist has a unicorn head mounted in her shop. The examine reads, "Alas poor unicorn, I knew him.", a reference to the Shakespeare play Hamlet.
  • The examine mentions a horse, an animal that does not exist within Old School RuneScape and is unknown to players, except for the toy horseys.
