Terror dog icon

Terror dogs are found at the end of Tarn's Lair. They can be killed with level 40 Slayer, and players can access them very quickly using the "Tarn's Lair" teleport on the ring of slaying.

During The Lair of Tarn Razorlor, four of these need to be fought alongside some Animated Steel Armour and Tarn Razorlor. After Tarn Razorlor has been slain they are aggressive and will rush players in a Prayer-draining area that can create problems for the unprepared.

Terror dogs do not count toward fulfilling a Slayer task for dogs. Their drops are very similar to the drops of green dragons, and are the only monsters that drop granite helms.

LocationEdit

Terror dogs can be found at:

  • Tarn's Lair
  • Dominion Tower (4 when fighting Tarn Razorlor, however these will not count toward slayer Assignments)

Getting thereEdit

Ternslairent

The entrance to Tarn's Lair.

Tarn's lair

The route from the entrance to terror dogs.

The lair's entrance is found in the Haunted Mine and requires a salve amulet to enter. The fastest way to access the lair is to use the ring of slaying and selecting the 'Tarn's Lair' option, which teleports you directly in the dungeon, with Tarn's room being directly north of the teleport spot.

The second fastest way is using drakan's medallion to teleport to Burgh de Rott and then heading west to use the Agility shortcut to climb over the fence, with the Haunted Mine being on the other side.

The third way is to teleport to Canifis, and go via the Myreque shortcut to Burgh de Rott. There is an Agility shortcut between the town of Burgh de Rott and the Haunted Mine area.

Another route is the Burgh de Rott Ramble. Choose Pazuzu (strongest follower), and route 1, the easiest.

To enter the lair, climb over the mine cart just south of the zealot (featured in the Haunted Mine quest), and enter the haunted mine, then travel north and enter the lair.

If players travel through Tarn's Lair, it is recommended to wear magic defensive armour, or bring prayer potions as the skeleton mages' magic attacks can hit hard. Before entering the room with the terror dogs remember to equip your melee armour.

StrategyEdit

Terror dogs are weak to slashing weapons and have very low Defence, however they are aggressive and accurate in their attacks. Players should be prepared to be attacked by multiple dogs at once, and may take damage very quickly. Tarn's Lair drains Prayer points at a rate of 10 points per two game ticks, or 500 points per minute (much faster than the Barrows), so it is best not to plan on using prayer.

It is highly recommended to bring plenty of food (monkfish or better), healing Summoning familiars or healing auras, and an emergency teleport. Players under 80 Attack/Strength/Defence might want to bring super sets.

It is recommended to bring a 2h weapon with healing abilities, and good armour. The saradomin godsword is a good choice as it is a slashing weapon. A full set of Guthan's armour can be used as an alternative method, however the spear is a stabbing weapon resulting in slightly less accuracy. A combat familiar, instead of a healing one, can be helpful if you choose to use a Saradomin godsword or Guthan's set.

Use a set of basic abilities that include Cleave, and the threshold abilities Quake and Hurricane. Use these 3 abilities as often as possible, and keep yourself in the middle of large numbers of enemy attacks. In addition, Balanced Strike may be helpful to keep your life points up.

A full Dharok's set is not advised here. Terror dogs are accurate enough that multiple attacks could seriously endanger a player trying to use Dharoks' low-life damage boosts. Prayer is drained too fast in these caverns to be reliable. Even with many prayer potions, it's far too easy to lose focus on your life points and die.

It is possible to line up the terror dogs in one of the side crevices in the room. With this method only 1-2 will be attacking you at the same time. The size of the crevices allows only one of the level 65 terror dog to attack because of its size, however 2 of the level 61s can fit.

Another option is to stay in the very back of the crevices. This allows only one level 61 to be fought at one time. Killing them with this method takes a long time, as after one is killed the player must wait for it to respawn. Moving near the crevice's opening to the central room can attract more into the crevice.

It is possible to safe spot terror dogs once they become unaggressive. The trick is to get the terror dog "caught" behind the torch. One can also use a halberd and trap them, exploiting their weakness to slash weapons.

The dwarf multicannon cannot be used here.
