Lava strykewyrm icon

Lava strykewyrms are strykewyrms found in the Wilderness, south of the Lava Maze (level 34-41). They require level 94 Slayer to kill and can be assigned by Kuradal and Morvran. Unlike their other cousins where a slayer task is required to harm them, Lava strykewyrms can be killed off-task. However, this will reduce their drop rates for their component drops. They are a reincarnation of the original WildyWyrms.

Lava strykewyrms can drop wyrm spikes, scalps and hearts, which can be used with abyssal whips, dark bows, or staves of light respectively to create the lava whip, strykebow, and the staff of darkness. They also drop searing ashes, which give 200 Prayer experience upon scattering, and are also used to create Aggression potions.

Lava strykewyrm location

Location of Lava strykewyrms.

If the player is killing lava strykewyrms for a Slayer assignment then they can gain 20% additional Slayer experience by equipping a demonic skull. They can gain another 20% extra experience per kill if they accept a special slayer contract from Erskine while assigned lava strykewyrms as a Slayer task. These experience bonuses stack, meaning the player may gain 40% extra Slayer experience. Completing a special slayer contract rewards the player with a choice of coins or combat experience. As lava strykewyrms cannot be found anywhere outside of the Wilderness, taking a contract is recommended for additional experience or profit.

Killing lava strykewyrms can be extremely profitable, as their ashes are currently worth 42,292 coins each. In addition to this valuable drop, they also have an extremely generous drop table. However, they are located in a PvP-enabled area of the Wilderness, so do not bring any items that you are not willing to lose.

Lava strykewyrms cannot be placed in the Sunken Pyramid - attempting to do will state that it requires a volcanic environment to survive.

Trivia

  • Lava strykewyrms were originally supposed to be placed between the Lava Maze and Red Dragon Isle, but player complaints due to how deep it was in the Wilderness in addition to being a multi-way area changed it to south-west of the Lava Maze.
  • Initially, lava strykewyrms gave 1404 slayer experience per kill when assigned for a task. This was changed due to player complaints on the dangers of the Wilderness, their damaging attacks and the 50% damage reduction for 10 seconds at the beginning of the fight (which is also later removed), and they now give more Slayer experience than combat experience.
  • There was a glitch where if a player was assigned lava strykewyrms, even though the slayer master said "lava strykewyrms", players who quickchatted/blocked the task said WildyWyrms instead. This has since been fixed.
  • Prior to the Patch Notes on 2 March 2015, a player in combat with a lava strykewyrm would be unable to retaliate if attacked by another player. Additionally, neither Anticipate nor Freedom would be able to prevent the pull of a Lava strykewyrm's burrow attack.
  • Sometimes, a glitch can occur where the wyrm will stop attacking the player for a few seconds. This is due to the lava strykewyrm attempting to use its burrow attack but unable to as the player is too far to be dragged/the strykewyrm cannot burst from that location.
  • As of 1 February 2018, the highest kill count for this monster was 29,997 kills[1].
    • This had not increased by 6 May 2018.[2]
  • Interestingly, while a wyrm is attempting to burrow underneath the player, it displays a weakness to crush despite being unable to be attacked during this attack.
