Testudo scroll detail.png

The testudo scroll enables the use of the Testudo special move for the War tortoise familiar. Testudo scrolls are made by using War tortoise pouches on a Summoning obelisk, providing 0.1 Summoning experience and 10 Testudo scrolls. If the Voice of Seren is active in the Amlodd District in Prifddinas, using the Prifddinas obelisk will give 12 scrolls per pouch.


A player activating the scroll.

Testudo is a special move of the war tortoise, activated by a testudo scroll. When activated, it temporarily boosts Defence by 9 points. Each use of a Testudo scroll requires 20 special move points and grants 0.7 summoning xp.

When used in conjunction with potions and more scrolls, this effect will NOT stack on top of what has already been boosted. Because of this, even players with a war tortoise following them will typically prefer a defence potion, super defence potion or saradomin brew for raising their defence.
