Wildywyrm Icon

WildyWyrms were large, lurking monsters that inhabited three parts of the Wilderness. Once awoken, these monsters would attack those around them with all forms of combat, Melee, Magic, and Ranged. They are related to strykewyrms and were found in the forest east of the Chaos Temple, south of Demonic Ruins, and between the Lava Maze and Red Dragon Isle[1]. Due to WildyWyrms being located in the wilderness, it was possible for other players to engage in combat with you as you fought the WildyWyrms.

At any time, Jagex Moderators were able to take control over these monsters, choosing their attack style. They could increase their attack and defence levels, raising their combat levels from 382 up to 562. They could additionally heal the WildyWyrms in order to prolong the fight and create a greater challenge for the players involved.

Normal WildyWyrms had a chance of dropping a fury shark, an untradeable food item that healed 230 life points during combat and 280 life points outside of combat. Jagex Moderator-controlled WildyWyrms that were defeated would always drop this item.

The WildyWyrm could destroy a player's Dwarf multicannon. When this happened, you were able to get your cannon back from Nulodion.

Strategies

It is generally recommended to keep Protect from Magic up at all times. The WildyWyrm has a magic attack that can chain hit between players, much like Korasi's sword, easily doing 450+ damage on the first target. The WildyWyrm also uses a ranged attack that can either hit players directly, or indirectly after bouncing off the ground. Damage of the indirect ranged attack is calculated once the projectile bounces off the ground, so if a player recognises the attack is a ranged attack, and changes protection prayers accordingly in time, it is possible to avoid damage from indirect range attacks. Players should immediately switch back to magic protection in anticipation for the next attack. This should only be attempted by players comfortable with prayer flashing and with a decent Constitution level as to not die in case of a mistake. Both range attacks can hit multiple targets at once. Protect Item is advisable depending on the equipment used.

Standing underneath the Wyrm will cause constant damage, around 100 per 2-3 ticks that cannot be blocked with prayer.

Do not forget that disabling "Quick Prayers" will disable ALL Prayers, including those not set as "Quick Prayers" such as Protect Item!

If you are using the spawn point near the chaos altar, it may be wise to recharge your prayer at the altar after every kill. It is a good way of keeping your prayer up without the use of potions. Respawn times are slow and can vary between 2.5 – 5 minutes depending on the number of players on the server.

As equipment goes, Slashing weapons like Korasi's sword and the Abyssal whip are good choices for weapons, and if you don't mind bringing it, a Godsword or Chaotic weapon could be invaluable, while Proselyte armour is good equipment if you don't want to risk much (Once again, you can bring better armour if you don't mind risking). Though, the special attacks of these weapons seem to have very little effect. Alternatively, the best Dragonhide armour you can wear will work too.

Enchanted ruby bolts can be especially useful due to their special effect, the Wildy Wyrms high health and limitation on the ruby bolts effect (such as the 500 damage limit on Nex and 1000 on the Corporeal Beast). It is possible to hit 2000 on the WildyWyrm if one has the luck to activate the ruby bolt special attack on the first damage-dealing hit.

Bringing a familiar such as a Spirit terrorbird, War tortoise or Pack yak can give you some extra healing, which can make this creature soloable at levels as low as 100. It may be advisable to bring healing familiar pouches to use once your beast of burden has been used up. Alternatively, healing familiars such as a bunyip, titans that have the Titan's Constitution ability and Unicorn stallions can also pay for themselves in healing using scrolls, while higher-level summoners will probably want a Steel or Iron titan to do more damage.

To begin the fight, you will have to investigate a mound at the Wyrm's spawn point. As soon as you do this, turn on Protect from Magic or risk being hit hard. During the fight, the Wyrm will burrow into the ground and disappear momentarily, pulling you into its footprint and temporarily disabling Protection/Deflection Prayers/Curses. It is essential that you run outside of the circle before it springs back up. If you do not do this, the wyrm will hit you very hard (usually 300-400), followed by another hit by the Wyrm while you are knocked down. As its magic attack can do 450+ if you don't have prayer on, you can easily get killed in just two hits. About one round after it springs back, you can re-activate your prayer. Usually, it will not get a hit in before you can get your prayers back up, but keep at base health while you wait for it to return anyways.

It is recommended to pray range when a J-mod controlled Wildywyrm is attacking, as their range attack is very accurate and always hits over 300.
