This article has a money making guide here: Killing unicows.
Please add tips to the subpage, rather than the article below.

A unicow is a hybrid of a cow and a unicorn. Players can create unicows in Creature Creation, in the basement dungeon of the Tower of Life building once they complete the Tower of Life quest.

A player can create a unicow by activating the altar (found in the north-west part of the basement) while having a cowhide and a unicorn horn in their inventory. The Homunculus in the dungeon then creates the monster, which appears near the altar and will attack the player. Taking too long to kill will result in the disappearance of the unicow.

How to Train using Unicows[edit | edit source]

Players can train very efficiently on unicows. Approximately 40 Attack, Strength, and Defence are needed to do this.

Go to the altar for the unicow, and activate the altar while having a cowhide and unicorn horn in the inventory. Kill the unicow for decent experience; they have low Attack and Strength. Pick up a unicorn horn to use next inventory. Around 14 cowhides are needed to obtain a full inventory of unicorn horns. Horns will always drop in noted form if you have completed all Medium Tasks in Ardougne Diary. You do not have to bring your cloak to get noted horns, but you will need to bring unnoted horns to summon unicows. This is a great method for training and making cash as it is rarely crowded, and people cannot steal your kills.

Some relatively fast ways to bank are to run back to the fairy ring next to the tower and bank in Zanaris, teleport to the monastery with the Ardougne cloak and bank at Castle Wars with a ring of dueling, though an Ardougne teleport (with teletabs to save space) could also be used.
