Witchwood icon detail.png

The witchwood icon is a piece of Slayer equipment used to negate the effect of the screams of Cave horrors found in the Mos Le'Harmless Cave. The special scream attack from cave horrors deals 10% of the player's total Hitpoints in damage. The icon is worn around the neck and requires a Slayer level of 35 to equip, although players must have 58 Slayer to be able to hit cave horrors. Jungle horrors do not use the special scream attack, as such, the icon is not necessary to fight them. It can be purchased from any Slayer Master for 900 coins but cannot be traded with other players. The Slayer Masters created these from witchwood trees, an extinct species of tree that once grew in Gielinor.

Players usually choose to use the Protect from Melee prayer for the same protection against them, as this lets them use necklaces with offensive bonuses instead of this icon.

Although this is not recommended, a player can use ranged or a halberd on the cave horrors without the witchwood icon and instead equip stat-boosting neckwear. Since cave horrors are aggressive, another cave horror may attack you. With some concentration, it is possible to quickly switch to a witchwood icon when another one attacks you.
