Azure skillchompas are level 68 hunter creatures found in the very north of the Snowy Hunter area in an area accessed via a ladder. They are caught using box traps and give 199 Hunter experience each when caught. Once caught, azure skillchompas transform into stackable azure skillchompas, which can be wielded to give benefits while skilling.
Up to six skillchompas can be caught per trap (this does not include protean traps), which scales with Agility level. From level 81 Agility, multiple are always caught. No additional experience is given for capturing multiple skillchompas.
After completing the player-owned farm tutorial, players may obtain azure chinchompa farm animals. As with all chinchompas, protean traps do not have a chance to give players this variant of the chinchompa.
Azure skillchompas can be attacked and explode when killed. If the attacking player is next to the skillchompa when it explodes, they will be pushed back 1 square and dealt 20 life points of ranged damage (this cannot be mitigated by Prayer). Players hunting these skillchompas should take care, as clicking on one will cause the player to attack it. A player can avoid this entirely by equipping a Ranged or Magic weapon without ammunition, or by selecting the "Hidden" option under the NPC Attack Option Settings.
Using spicy tomatoes as bait whilst catching chinchompas increases capture rate by 30%.
- Increase the maximum possible number of skillchompas per trap from four to six.
