The arctic bear is a Summoning familiar that can be summoned with level 71 Summoning by using an arctic bear pouch. It has a combat level of 84 and can use the Arctic Blast special move which has a chance to stun. It also counts as two pieces of polar camouflage gear and gives an invisible +7 Hunter level boost.

It is the second-highest level familiar a player can summon with a Gold charm, compared to the Tier 3 Spirit war pig. Its tertiary ingredient is the polar kebbit fur, which is relatively difficult to obtain in bulk. The 7 level Hunter boost makes it a good choice for gathering kyatt fur and other hunting as well.

Arctic bear pouch[edit | edit source]


An arctic bear pouch allows an arctic bear to be summoned. It is created by using a pouch on a Summoning obelisk with a gold charm, 14 Spirit shards, and a polar kebbit fur in the inventory, granting 93.2 summoning experience. If players exchange their arctic bear pouches at Bogrog, they will receive 10 spirit shards per pouch.

Arctic Bear scroll (Arctic Blast)[edit | edit source]

A player activating the scroll.

An Arctic Bear scroll (Arctic Blast) allows the use of the Arctic bear's special attack, Arctic Blast. It is created by using an arctic bear pouch on a summoning obelisk, granting 1.1 experience and ten scrolls.

Arctic Blast[edit | edit source]

Arctic Blast is the special attack of the arctic bear. It can hit a maximum of 921 magic damage and has a chance to briefly stun the opponent. Arctic blast appears as a rotating icicle 'cast' from the bear's paw. The arctic bear may randomly attack with magic on its own, but it cannot stun without a scroll. This makes the Arctic bear commonly used in Castle Wars and Clan Wars.
