Spitting wyverns are Slayer monsters that require a Slayer level of 66 in order to be harmed. They reside in the Wyvern Cave on Fossil Island and are the weakest of the Fossil Island wyverns. Like with other Wyverns, an elemental, mind, dragonfire ward, dragonfire or ancient wyvern shield provides significant protection against their icy breath. These monsters require completion of the Bone Voyage quest to be assigned as a Slayer task.

Unlike their skeletal variant, spitting wyverns can use their icy breath from any distance. They will use Ranged when attacking from a distance, and will not try to use melee unless the target is in melee range. Their Ranged attack is weak; however, it may hit the player multiple times if it is a successful hit.

Spitting wyverns are the weakest of the Fossil Island wyverns, deal relatively low damage, and have a similar drop table to their taloned and long-tailed counterparts. As such, they are often the optimal choice when players are assigned a Fossil Island wyvern Slayer task.

Locations[edit | edit source]

Wyvern Cave139Member icon.png8Maplink

There are two different wyvern caves - one where players can freely slay them, and one for those that have been assigned a Slayer task of Fossil Island wyverns. The task-only cave is reached via the trapdoor found in the Mushroom Forest, and the regular cave is found south of the Museum Camp. If a player attempts to attack the wyverns in the northern cave without a Fossil Island wyvern Slayer task, Weve (Steve's son) will stop them from doing so.

Drops[edit | edit source]

Drop rates estimated based on 95,043 kills from the Drop Rate Project, unless otherwise cited.

The average Spitting Wyvern kill is worth 10,316.26.

The average Spitting Wyvern kill while on a Konar task is worth 11,659.34.
