This talk page is for discussing the Dagannoth page.

Cleanup notes

This page should be about the dagganoth race/species. Then create a new page for the standard dagganoth LIKE the levels 74, 88, 92, etc. that are found in the lighthouse and at the beginning of the waterbirth cave. Should be made like any other article about monsters. Drop list should also be moved to their respective monster articles. Remember to add the "standard" dagganoth page to the template at the bottom of the page by editing the template. --Fools! Da wabbit is dead... 00:18, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

Agreed, I can never find out what I need from this article. E.T. Prod U(Talk) 18:49, 12 February 2009 (UTC)

I agree! It seems like there less and less info here to make it generic about all dagannoth! I can't even find out what the weakness of the Lighthouse dagannoth are anymore. I would have swore it was here once. 16:50, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

I always wondered if full verac can hit trough the diferent colours Allex 06:21, 1 August 2007 (UTC)

Wait, what?

Er, how can I say this...Quite simply, Dagannoths look nothing like Xenomorphs. Zenomorphs have really long heads and slender arms, whereas the Dagannoth has a stubbly, reptilian-like head and somewhat chubby arms. Δεατη Ηιμσελϕ ΝοϒεσΙΔK 05:08, 5 January 2008 (UTC)

a question about the charm drops

I was wondering if the dagannoths in waterbirth and the dagannoths in the chaos tunnels drop charms at around the same rate. i know that others monsters in the tunnels drop charms mroe often, but i was wondering because the article shows them as dropping them the same amount. it would save me a good amount of time navigating the tunnels if someone could answer me. thanks Jdogy15 22:07, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

Daggonoths= Aliens?

This may sound crazy but... I think Dagganoths are from another Planet.

Well, think about it.

Firstly, no other creature on Runescape even remotely resembles a Dagganoth

Secondly, a track unlocked in the Dagganoth Caverns is called "Xenophobe", which means fear of the unknown, or fear of Aliens.

Thirdly, Dagganoth Prime is said to have "Ridden on the North Winds." Perhaps this is a reference to their spaceship/craft?

P.S. sorry if this writing is a little messed up, but my computer has a crap moniter

Interesting theory, for sure. Consider how many unique creatures exist in RuneScape, though; most Slayer monsters, for example. Still, I wouldn't dismiss this immediately, and it's kinda cool. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 20:16, 10 March 2009 (UTC)
actually, slayermonsters come from a different dimension, they 'leaked through' when the abyssal demons entered our plane of existence. or at least; the ones in the slayer tower are. Firemaking cape (t) rida81 Quest point cape 14:04, March 18, 2010 (UTC)

New articles?

Wouldn't it be better to put Dagganoth Mother in a different article instead of joining it with this one?--King x treme 01:26, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

I agree, and wouldn't a infobox be nice? Reeser111 Im on ure world, PWNing ure account 15:32, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

Added Fremennik Blade to the drop list as I have just gotten one while reading this article Bassjason1 16:12, 19 June 2009 (UTC)


I changed the focus of this article. Instead of listing all the various forms of dagannoth, I moved them to separate articles and linked to them from here. I did not transfer the drop tables; it was difficult to tell which applied to which type of dagannoth, and I doubt their veracity. So the main articles (with the exception of the dagannoth I was killing) all lack drop tables. Help in updating these, as well as full infoboxes, would be appreciated.

Wouldn't it be worth while to mention which variations are recommeneded for slayer tasks, which have special drops, and what level each variation is? I had a similar issue with other pages such as skeletons and zombies where there are many variations. I want to be able to compare levels, drops, and convienience before doing a slayer task.Quest point capeSk8r dan man Quests 02:15, April 22, 2010 (UTC)

To Clear up Exactly what the Dagannoth race is based on, once and for all.

I don't know what exatually dagannoths are. but check this out,

in Avatar the legend of aang. the last episonde of the first sieres, when he

transformed as the moon spirit , he shapped himself as a dagannoth and it

is strange as Dagannoths are related by both the moon and the water since waterbirth

is moon shaped and they are aquatic. so this might conclude that dagannoths have something

to do with water and the moon.

To Clear up Extactly what the Dagannoth are based on:

They're not based on dinosaurs lol, "Maiasaur" literally means "caring mother lizard". You unlock this track while fighting Dagannoth Mother during Blood Runs Deep. "Caring mother lizard" is exactly what a Dagannoth mother is. If the Dagannoth are based on anything at all, its Xenomorphs from Aliens. The eggs, the legions of indentical soldier/workers, their preference of dark dank places and last but not least, a big bad queen who spawns EVERYTHING - she is integral to the entire population.
