Wyverns are dragon-like monsters in the Asgarnian Ice Dungeon. They were first revealed at RuneFest 2015, after being pitched on RuneLabs and being one of the November poll winners. They require level 96 Slayer to be killed. Wyverns reside in an icy cavern beneath the area the skeletal wyverns reside in.

Dragonbane ammunition does not have its passive effect against the wyverns, as they are not considered dragons.

LocationEdit

Go to the Asgarnian Ice Dungeon, enter the skeletal wyverns' cave, and go to the south-west corner. There will be rope in a hole in the floor, descend down the rope and that is where the living wyverns are.

The quickest methods of reaching the cave are by using the Port Sarim lodestone, using fairy ring code AIQ to Mudskipper Point, or teleporting to the Asgarnian Ice Dungeon resource dungeon with a Hoardstalker ring or Dungeoneering cape.

MechanicsEdit

Upon entry, the player is somewhat cold and the base poison damage from wyverns is 300. This means the player is in the "Cold" (around 20-25%) mechanic and should light one of the static fires nearby. As the player gets colder, an icy overlay becomes more visible on their screen. Several mechanics will take place depending on the chill from the cavern:

  • Warm: Wyvern poison damage increased up to 900 per 4-5 ticks.
  • Cold: Wyvern attack damage greatly increased; damage around 2,500 becomes typical.
  • Coldest: Player will be constantly stunned at 8–10 seconds per stun; it is highly advised to use Freedom and get out of the cavern if this happens.

Players can mitigate the chill effect by lighting any of the 5 unlit fires scattered throughout the cave. While a fire is lit, standing next to it will cause a player to slowly warm up. Thus, fighting wyverns from afar while standing next to a lit fire will allow a player to avoid dealing with the worst of the chill effects. Lit fires will only last a short time before they burn out and must be lit again.

The chill effects can be reset by leaving the cavern.

The wyverns have two ice breath attacks: their normal one (used by their skeletal brethren), and a poisonous one. Whenever the wyvern uses the poisonous ice breath, a message will appear and say "A strong wyvern poison corrodes into your bones." Using an elemental workshop shield of any sort or the wyrmfire potion will block the damage from their ice breath attacks, but will not protect against the ensuing poison attacks. The poison from this attack ignores the effects of the poison purge auras, the venomblood perk and the anti-poison totem from Dungeoneering. Fortunately, drinking a dose of antipoison will halve the damage of the poison. It is highly recommended to bring antipoison (preferably ++) as the damage can quickly stack up with their already high damage outputs which can easily kill an unprepared player.

Wyverns attack in a manner similar to Araxxi; at a distance, they only attack with magic and ranged. If the player is next to them, they will only attack with melee. If attacking from afar, prayer flicking is not recommended as the damage is already calculated before the projectile hits the player.

Melee is the most consistent method of battling wyverns, as while the player will be subjected to the cold, they can easily flick through a wyvern's attacks. A scrimshaw of vampyrism and the vampyrism aura can help prolong trips. When the player reaches the "coldest" on their meter (roughly 90%), leave the chamber and log out in the skeletal wyvern area, as it will remove accumulated frost stacks. Alternatively, one can light the fires to quickly lower the frost effect, though it runs the risk of aggression.

Despite having the lowest combat level of the Raptor mobs, they are much stronger than their combat level suggests. While they have high damage outputs from both their standard attacks and their poison, they have the lowest health (while the Camel Warrior has less health, they have 3 mirages).

TriviaEdit

Elite Mobs concept art - Wyvern

Concept art of the wyvern

  • Wyverns are referred to as living wyverns in the beast tab kill count interface.
  • There was a glitch where if assigned wyverns, when quickchatted it would say you are assigned "Nothing", including if they are preferred or blocked. This did not affect the built-in slayer counter however, and has since been fixed.
  • The drop table for wyverns was buffed on 16 November 2015.
  • Due to player complaints about how difficult wyverns were compared other slayer monsters of their level, they were given several changes with the 11 September 2017 update:
    • The lit fires were given an increased area of effect from a 3x3 to a 5x5 radius. Lit fires also removed frost stacks at a faster rate from 1% to 3%.
    • Their attack speed was lowered significantly.
    • The frost stacks take twice as long to accumulate.
