A red salamander is a creature that can be caught using the Hunter skill. A Hunter level of 59 is required to catch it. Red salamanders give 272 Hunter experience when caught. It can be caught by using a small fishing net and a rope on a young tree, after which players can use it as a ranged weapon.


The red salamander Hunter area is located west of the spirit tree near the Battlefield of Khazard. To get there, use the Lunar magic spell Ourania Teleport, travel using the spirit trees, or teleport to Castle Wars Arena and walk north. There are two spots in which hunting salamanders is possible: one is located directly south of the altar, the other is located east of the entrance of the path that leads to the altar.

Hunting TipsEdit

You should bring four small fishing nets and four ropes at a minimum, but it's desirable to bring more than this in case some are accidentally lost. Super energy potions are not necessary due to the run update, but keep your weight at a minimum; wear wicked robes, a spotted/spottier capeboots of lightness and penance gloves. Any camouflage equipment is desirable, although not necessary.

Once a net trap has caught a lizard, the lizard will remain in the trap for 60 seconds, at which point the lizard will escape and the trap will dismantle itself. It is possible to release lizards while creating or dismantling a trap without any adverse effects; doing this saves time in regard to the alternative, which is releasing large quantities of lizards all at once. To avoid wasting time by accidentally attacking the monks, a hunter can equip a salamander without proper ammunition for it, thus making it impossible for the hunter to attack.

At the southern spot, up to 83,000 experience per hour can be achieved at around level 75 by using an enhanced yaktwee stick and a summoned spirit graahk.
