[FAQ] • [doc]

Dagannoth are monsters that live in the Waterbirth Island Dungeon and the Chaos Tunnels. There are two types of Dagannoth, those who use melee and those who use ranged, also differing in appearance and examine text. Furthermore, both types of Dagannoth are separated into level 78 and 79 versions. Dagannoth are extremely weak to Balmung and its enhanced counterparts, but may nevertheless be fought with other weapons.

These dagannoth use a fast and very accurate ranged attack. They have brown backs and are identified as "spiny horrors" in their examine text. They cannot be found in the first room of the dungeon, but instead the level 78s are found behind the southern-most door. As with their melee counterparts, the level 79 ranged Dagannoth can be found deeper within the dungeon. Both levels of ranged Dagannoth can also be found in the north-western most cavern of the Chaos Tunnels, in the room that leads to Bork's chamber.

Care should be taken when engaging ranged Dagannoths, as players can easily find themselves swarmed by several of them due to their high aggression range and dense spawn locations.
