Giant rock crabs are massive versions of the weaker Rock crab. They lie in wait for prey, disguised as large boulders. When approached, they attack, unless they have become tolerant, in which case they remain as "boulders" - attempting to target them gives the message "Invalid target."
Giant Rock Crabs are good droppers of charms, as they drop 3 of them at a time. They also drop various black equipment (platebody and claws), worth a decent sum of coins. They are the only droppers of rock-shell parts, which are needed to create Rock-shell armour.
- In the Chaos Tunnels. Use the entrance in level 9 of the Wilderness, just east of the wizard who teleports players to the Abyss.
- In the Waterbirth Island Dungeon.
In the Chaos Tunnels, they will eventually lose aggression. When they do, just leave the cave via the rope exit. Then just go straight back down the crevice.
The Giant Rock Crab is one of few monsters that will retreat from battle when they become critically wounded.
|Represents a 90% confidence range based on a sample of 6,143 kills.|
