Wyrms are draconic creatures found in the lower level of the Karuulm Slayer Dungeon in Mount Karuulm, requiring level 62 Slayer to kill. Players can get there quickly by using the fairy ring cir located south of the mountain. 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. Players that have completed the Elite Kourend & Kebos Diary do not need to wear this footwear to avoid 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 a Dragonkin named Karuulm.
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.
If on a Slayer Task, any idle Wyrms on the eastern alcove of the second island can be attacked and then lured to the corner to trap them, allowing players to range them at a specific spot while staying out of their magic attack range of 6 squares. Players will occasionally need to re-engage the Wyrm in combat as it will return to its idle state after being unable to retaliate for several hits. It is recommended to use a shortbow or other 3-tick attack speed option, so that when the Wyrm idles, the arrow released re-engages the Wyrm just in time for it to go back into its attacking state without causing the player to stop attacking. Getting this timing right can be tricky, though.
