Sapping glacytes are monsters that were released on 14 September 2011. These monsters are only accessible after completing the quest Ritual of the Mahjarrat. They are summoned by a glacor when it reaches half health, together with an enduring glacyte and an unstable glacyte. You will need to kill these 3 glacytes before being able to proceed killing the glacor.
The sapping glacytes' special trait is prayer drain. Every time it attacks, it will drain 20 prayer points regardless of damage. Killing these last will result in glacor having the prayer drain ability, however, since the glacor is much stronger, it will drain 50 prayer points with each hit, instead of 20.
If the glacor is killed before the glacytes (via typeless damage) and some time is waited if a player then attempts to kill the glacyte(s) they will get a message telling them that they can't attack the glacyte.
