Strategy to safespot Wyrms
Wyrms are draconic creatures found in the lower level of the Karuulm Slayer Dungeon in Mount Karuulm, requiring level 62 Slayer to kill. You can get there quickly by using the fairy ring (code cir) and travelling up the volcano. As they are only found within the volcano, players must wear the boots of stone, boots of brimstone or granite boots to protect themselves from the extreme heat of the dungeon floor. However, players who have completed the elite Kourend & Kebos Diary can wear any type of footwear without being rapidly burned.
Wyrms were an ancient race of dragons, said to be capable of destroying cities and armies on their own. They slowly disappeared due to their heavy involvement in the God Wars. The current Wyrms in the dungeon are an attempted recreation of the powerful Wyrms of old by an unnamed dragonkin.
Wyrms do NOT require any form of dragonfire protection. When encountered, they will be slithering on the ground. However, once attacked, they will levitate off the ground and attack the player. Wyrms attack with both melee and magic, however if attacked from a distance, they will only use their magic attack. This makes the ranged attack style while using a form of magic protection, such as Protect from Magic, or armour with high magic defence bonuses like dragonhide, a viable method for killing Wyrms.
They are the only monster to drop the dragon sword and dragon harpoon.
Drop rates estimated based on 847,282 kills from the Old School RuneScape Wiki drop log project, unless otherwise cited.
The average wyrm kill, including wyrm bones and its unique drops, is worth either 4,164 when you are not on a wyrm slayer assignment, or 4,563 when you are on a wyrm slayer assignment.

The Wyrm's transition animation
- Wyrms, from the Old English word meaning "serpent", are legendary dragons in European mythology.
- There was a bug where if you kill a Wyrm as it goes idle it will drop regular bones instead of wyrm bones. This was fixed in an update on 14 March 2019.
- When attacking with magic, Wyrms use the same sound effect as using bones on an altar
