An Abyssal leech is a monster that dwells in the Abyss, and also in the Abyssal Area (Fairy Ring code: ALR). They do have high accuracy and can hit very quickly (attack speed of 8, around the same speed as dual wielded "fastest" weapons). They are the monster usually killed for pouches because they are the abyssal monster that has the fewest life points, though only by a small amount. On the flip side, however, their drop rate is the same of the monsters with tougher life points and defence.
It is not recommended to hunt these for pouch drops. Abyssal Walkers are much easier to kill, because while wearing Mage armour, you will consume less food from the melee attacks of the abyssal monsters. It is ONLY recommended to hunt these if you're looking for essence drops and combat experience, which is not recommended, as essence can be mined at a much quicker rate, and there are much quicker ways of training combat.
To hunt this creature in the Abyssal Area, place yourself in a corner so that they can only attack you one at a time. If you have 43 Prayer, bring a Prayer potion and use Protect from Melee. After that point hunting for pouches, charms, and various talismans is easier.
Training on them is not recommended but possible due to other monsters such as Abyssal walkers and Abyssal guardians that roam the Abyss and Abyssal Area. They have 2600 LP, extremely low defence, and are highly aggressive, allowing quick training. However, they will stop being aggressive after a while, just like the Abyssal guardian and the Abyssal walker do.
