Crystal Shapeshifters are Slayer monsters located on Tarddiad after completion of the quest The Light Within. They can fight with all three combat styles, and they will switch dependent on the combat style of armour you are wearing. Crystal Shapeshifters are more dangerous than their combat level suggests and should not be taken lightly, as they use combat abilities to a much greater extent than many other monsters.

Although Crystal Shapeshifters start off in a specific form based on their spawn location, they will quickly switch combat styles based on what combat form the player is weak to. Activating a protection prayer that protects from the style that counters the player's worn equipment will prevent them from shapeshifting altogether. An example would be bringing magic armour and using Protect/Deflect Missiles; without the overhead prayer, the shapeshifter would use ranged on the player. With the overhead prayer, the shapeshifter will stay in magic form, since melee attacks are weak against magic armour. This method will not work as well with melee shapeshifters, as the shapeshifter can perform Smash and disable the player's protection prayers/curses.

In addition to regular abilities in their respective combat style, crystal shapeshifters can roll into a spiked ball and charge at the player, dealing approximately 1500-2500 melee damage, seemingly doing so when stunned or bound. A shapeshifter can roll several times in a row, dealing high damage.

Angof can be spoken with to make the shapeshifters unaggressive if desired, which is recommended, as they have a very far aggression range.

Shapeshifters do not wander from their spawn point until they enter combat (being attacked or attacking a target they are aggressive against).

DropsEdit

100% dropEdit

Crystal Shapeshifters during the quest only give their 100% drop.

Item Quantity Rarity GE price
Tarddian crystalTarddian crystal1–3AlwaysNot sold
  • For every piece of crystal armour worn excluding the first piece, the maximum amount of crystals dropped increases by 1. For example, using 3 parts will cause them to drop 2–5 crystals.
  • Without wearing any crystal armour pieces, getting 2 crystals is more common than getting 3 crystals.
  • Without wearing any crystal armour pieces, 1-2 crystals are dropped with the main drop and 1 shortly afterwards. The first drop can be boosted with crystal armour.

TriviaEdit

Crystaline Shapeshifter armies of Gielinor

Crystalline Shapeshifters in armies of Gielinor

  • Crystalline Shapeshifters are featured in the Armies of Gielinor game as a level 5 unit from Seren, though they share very little similarities with each other in appearance. Unlike most of the level 5 units which are mostly titan class units, the Crystalline Shapeshifter belongs to the warrior class and has the least Strength of all level 5 units, on the other hand the Crystalline Shapeshifter is capable of teleporting on a unit, instantly killing them in the process.
  • In their melee form, Crystal Shapeshifters have a unique melee attack animation where they seemingly attack three times for the duration of the animation, even though the attack hits only once.
  • Crystal shapeshifters received the following changes due to player complaints:
    • Combat and slayer experience was increased.
    • When a crystal shapeshifter shifted styles prior to the change, the player would have to click on them again as they would have "lost" their target even though they were fighting them. This was changed so that it could change styles without turning into a "new" target.
