Azure skillchompas are level 68 hunter creatures found in the very north of the Snowy Hunter area in an area accessed via a ladder. They are caught using box traps and give 178 Hunter experience each when caught. Once caught, azure skillchompas transform into stackable azure skillchompas, which can be wielded to give benefits while skilling.
Up to 4 skillchompas can be caught per trap, which scales with Agility level. From level 81 Agility, multiple are always caught. Hunting azure skillchompas grants around 120,000-150,000 experience an hour. With at least 81 Agility, and using a Hunter's Catalyst fragment, hunter urns and summoning familiars, up to 280,000 Hunter experience an hour can be gained.
Azure skillchompas can be attacked and explode when killed. If the attacking player is next to the skillchompa when it explodes, they will be pushed back 1 square and dealt 20 life points of ranged damage (this cannot be mitigated by Prayer). Players hunting these skillchompas should take care, as clicking on one will cause the player to attack it. A player can avoid this entirely by equipping a Ranged or Magic weapon without ammunition, or by selecting the "Hidden" option under the NPC Attack Option Settings.
Using spicy tomatoes as bait whilst catching chinchompas increases capture rate by 30%.
