[FAQ] • [doc]

Dagannoth are monsters that live in the Waterbirth Island Dungeon and the Chaos Tunnels. There are two types of Dagannoth, those who use melee and those who use ranged, also differing in appearance and examine text. Furthermore, both types of Dagannoth are separated into level 78 and 79 versions. Dagannoth are extremely weak to Balmung and its enhanced counterparts, but may nevertheless be fought with other weapons.

These Dagannoth use an accurate melee attack, which hits often and hard against players. They have grey backs, and are identified as "darkened horrors" in their examine text. The Level 78 versions of them are the only type of Dagannoth (besides spawn) to inhabit the first room of the dungeon, while the level 79 ones can only be found deeper.
