Salarin the Twisted is an evil druid found at the end of Yanille's Agility dungeon in an area that requires level 67 Agility to enter. He guards the sinister chest that contains nine herbs: 2 harralander, 3 ranarr, 1 irit, 1 kwuarm, 1 avantoe, and 1 torstol.
Salarin can only be harmed by
Strike spells or spells higher level than strike spells, including special spells like Polypore Strike. Lower level spells, melee, and ranged cannot harm him. He is weakest against fire spells, although any magic spell will work.
Food, or a healing familiar such as the
bunyip, are useful during long trips. High-level players can easily kill Salarin multiple times with little or no need for food. One effective tactic is to use Void knight gear and a polypore Staff or Armadyl battlestaff, which often kills Salarin in one strike. If also killing the chaos druids, bringing a bow and arrows will also kill them quickly, too.
The area the player can stand to safely attack Salarin.
There is a point in the corridor where the player can attack Salarin and he will try to retreat rather than attack. This is useful for low level players who are not confident about taking him on at close quarters.

Key token 1 Rare Not sold
Before the release of the Farming skill, killing Salarin for the Sinister key was the only way to obtain Torstol.
Before the Evolution of Combat, Salarin could only be injured by the four elemental strike spells that used mind runes - Wind Strike, Water Strike, Earth Strike, and Fire Strike - and by Slayer Dart, Wind Rush, and Polypore Strike spell. Although it hit higher, Slayer Dart wasn't as consistent as the strike spells.
When the Evolution of Combat was released, Salarin was one of the many monsters that did not have their stats updated, as evidenced by low life points and maximum damage, and a glitched weakness to crush. His weakness was changed to fire spells with the release of Vorago on 2 July 2013, but his life points and maximum hit were not changed.
