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. 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. Additionally, players that have completed the elite Kourend & Kebos Diary can wear any type of footwear, or no 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 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. High level players (70+ Defence) should be just fine with food and Karil's armour.
They are the only monster to drop the dragon sword and dragon harpoon.
Wyrms are vulnerable to the effects of Dragonbane weapons.
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. 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.
Drop rates estimated based on 847,282 kills from the Drop Rate Project, unless otherwise cited.
The average wyrm kill, including wyrm bones and its unique drops, is worth either 4,305 when you are not on a wyrm Slayer task, or 4,639 when you are on a wyrm slayer assignment.
