Cockatrice are Slayer monsters that require level 25 Slayer to kill. They frequently drop limpwurt roots, which is their main food source, used in the Herblore skill.

In the quest Fur 'n' Seek, cockatrice skin must be collected and cleaned for the Odd Old Man.

LocationsEdit

Protective equipmentEdit

Equipment is necessary to avoid the stat-draining attack of the cockatrice. Any of the following can be used:

Players without 20 defence can still be assigned these to kill as a slayer task.

Once a day you can force a Cockatrice slayer assignment by talking to Mazchna or Vannaka whilst wearing the Mask of Stone or Helm of Petrifications.

Strengths and weaknessesEdit

Cockatrices

Cockatrices in the Fremennik Slayer Dungeon.

Cockatrice have a special stat-draining attack, which they use if the player is not wearing protective equipment. It will shoot out beams from its eyes quickly reducing combat stats (including agility) to dangerously low levels (1/4 of the player's original levels e.g. 15/60) and causes rapid damage for up to 110 life points per hit (it does more damage with higher levels). These beams always hit a fixed amount. This is why a mirror shield is necessary.

If the player is protected however, they fight using standard melee and ranged attacks. They have few life points and do not hit substantially. Their attack speed is the same as a scimitar or mace. They are weak against crush attacks, although any melee weapon will suffice.
