Turoths are Slayer monsters that require a Slayer level of 55 to kill. They drop herbs and herb seeds commonly, though not as frequently as Aberrant spectres. They have an interesting death animation, where they jump up into the air and land on their head, the back leg sticking up.
Turoths, like Kurasks, must be killed with either a Leaf-bladed spear, a Leaf-bladed sword, the Magic Dart spell (which requires a Magic level of 50 plus either a Slayer's staff or a Staff of light), or Broad arrows/Broad-tipped bolts, or else the player's attacks will be ineffective. Turoths are immune to poison, even through the use of poison inflicting familars and scrolls.
Turoths vary on level depending on their size. Level 83 Turoths have a very pale colour, while the level 85's have a slightly darker colour. Level 87s are larger, looking almost similar to their level 85, whilst the level 89's skin has something that resembles the colour pinkish-orange.
The lower-levelled Turoths can hit for damage in the 90s, while the higher-levelled ones can hit over 100. They don't hit as accurately as similarly levelled monsters, but if they do hit, they usually hit high.
Out of all the methods of slaying turoth, only the arrows and a Staff of light have a special attack (the former only works if used with a magic shortbow, magic longbow, dark bow, or one of the three God bows), a useful tactic is to use Excalibur's or Enhanced excalibur's special attack to boost defence (and heal life points if using Enhanced Excalibur).
Turoths are often popular to kill because they can drop up to three grimy herbs at once. Additionally, they have a high chance of dropping an item from the rare drop comparative to their combat level, and will often drop an item from the rare drop table around once every 400 kills. Pure essence and adamant ore noted are often dropped along with dragon spears and dragon daggers.
Fremennik Slayer Dungeon
This is by far the most popular location to slay turoth, and having 81 agility can help reduce the time taken to get here. Due to the popularity of the dungeon, players can often get the turoths to block on other players. This is done by attacking a turoth and running around a player, effectively creating a temporary safe-spot. Its advised that you run around a player weaker than you, so that you can kill your turoth faster than the other player, eliminating the possibility that the other player moves away to attack another turoth before you are done. This method can be used to safe-spot the weaker turoth. There is a fairy ring located outside the dungeon for quick access. There are a lot of level 83 and 85 Turoth, three level 87 Turoth, and one level 89 Turoth in this spot, allowing players to kill Turoths at a fast and efficient rate for your Slayer task. AJR is the code for the closest Fairy ring.
You cannot use a cannon in this dungeon.
If players are seeking charms, the Chaos Tunnels are the best place to hunt turoth. However, this is not recommended as the tunnels are multicombat, you cannot use a cannon either and the whole place is a maze to navigate through. Malfunctioning portals can set you back, and some rooms may be filled with dangerous monsters. The up-side to this is that you can use a combat familiar. See the Chaos Tunnels page for a map of the tunnels to navigate to the turoths. Players should not use the Chaos Tunnels if they are expecting to kill lots of Turoth in large amounts, as their room is extremely tiny, there's no safespots, there's a lack of level 83 Turoth, there's no level 85 Turoth, and there's a lot of level 87-89 Turoth in there.
Pollnivneach Slayer Dungeon
Players can fight turoths here after fighting the Mightiest turoth in the Desert Slayer Dungeon miniquest (requires Smoking kills). The location is especially useful if your slayer master is Sumona, who is located just above the dungeon, so you can get a new task fast. The downside to this is that you have to be wearing masked earmuffs, which also prevents the use of void sets. However, if you have a Slayer Helmet (which also contains a facemask and earmuffs) this place can be very useful, coupled up with the fact that the helmet gives a 16.67% damage boost. A full slayer helmet is even more useful, also giving the 16.67% boost to magic and ranged. The location is the closest to a bank(players can use the magic carpet system to get to Shantay Pass, Nardah, or Sophanem for banking. (Note that the Sophanem bank can only be used after Contact!). Though this isn't as popular as the Fremmenik slayer dungeon, it has plenty of safe-spots and, provided you have a slayer helm, it's arguably a better location. Another way to take advantage of this location is to move your house to Pollnivneach (provided you have an altar) where you can replenish prayer. It's extremely easy to safe-spot one with the many scattered rocks and crystals all over their cavern. However it will be hard to heal if a player does not have any form of healing item with them as a mistake in the Banshees area can kill you. A cannon can be used in the dungeon but it is not recommended because the cannon cannot harm the turoths, so it will only make them agressive towards you.
