Lava strykewyrm icon

Lava strykewyrms are strykewyrms found exclusively in the Wilderness, south of the Lava Maze. They require level 94 Slayer to kill and can be assigned by Kuradal and Morvran. Unlike their other cousins where a slayer task is required to harm them, Lava strykewyrms can be killed off-task. However, this will reduce their drop rates for their component drops. They are a reincarnation of the original WildyWyrms.

Lava strykewyrms can drop wyrm spikes, scalps and hearts, which can be used with abyssal whips, dark bows, or staves of light respectively to create the lava whip, strykebow, and the staff of darkness. They also drop searing ashes, which give 200 prayer experience upon scattering, and are also used to create Aggression potions.

Lava strykewyrm location

Location of Lava strykewyrms.

The fastest way to reach lava strykewyrms is by using the lava titan's interact ability to teleport directly; you will be teleported right outside the entrance of the Lava Maze, where there are lava strykewyrms nearby, though you will need to go to a nearby cape seller to access your bank to switch it for a BoB. The Wilderness obelisks are also a good choice; the level 35/44 obelisks are not far from the lava strykewyrms. You can also use the Wilderness sword to teleport to the herb patch, or use a waka canoe to enter the Wilderness and run west from there.

If the player is killing lava strykewyrms for a Slayer assignment then they can gain 20% additional Slayer experience by equipping a demonic skull. They can gain another 20% extra experience per kill if they accept a special slayer contract from Erskine while assigned lava strykewyrms as a Slayer task. These experience bonuses stack, meaning the player may gain 40% extra Slayer experience. Completing a special slayer contract rewards the player with a choice of coins or combat experience. As lava strykewyrms cannot be found anywhere outside of the Wilderness, taking a contract is recommended for additional experience or profit.

The lava strykewyrms' location is a PVP-enabled area, meaning it is possible for other players to attack you while there. Do not bring equipment that you are not willing to lose. If players are attacked, there are plenty of areas to escape their assailant, as they are relatively close to the level 30 Wilderness line, the King Black Dragon's lair and the Forinthry Dungeon.

Lava strykewyrms cannot be placed in the Sunken Pyramid - attempting to do will state that it requires a volcanic environment to survive.

TriviaEdit

  • Lava strykewyrms were originally supposed to be placed between the Lava Maze and Red Dragon Isle, but player complaints due to how deep it was in the Wilderness in addition to being a multi-way area changed it to south-west of the Lava Maze.
  • Initially, lava strykewyrms gave 1404 slayer experience per kill when assigned for a task. This was changed due to player complaints on the dangers of the Wilderness, their damaging attacks and the 50% damage reduction at the beginning of the fight, and they now give more Slayer experience than combat experience.
  • There was a glitch where if a player was assigned lava strykewyrms, even though the slayer master said "lava strykewyrms", players who quickchatted/blocked the task said WildyWyrms instead. This has since been fixed.
  • Prior to the Patch Notes on 2 March 2015, a player in combat with a lava strykewyrm would be unable to retaliate if attacked by another player. Additionally, neither Anticipate nor Freedom would be able to prevent the pull of a Lava strykewyrm's burrow attack.
  • Sometimes, a glitch can occur where the wyrm will stop attacking the player for a few seconds. This is due to the lava strykewyrm attempting to use its burrow attack but unable to as the player is too far to be dragged/the strykewyrm cannot burst from that location.
  • Lava strykewyrms used to have a 50% damage reduction at the start of the fight which lasted for 10 seconds, but this was removed in a hidden update.
