This is a dangerous event.
If you die, you will lose your items and will need to reclaim them from Death or your grave.

Clawdia only appears during events and may not be currently found in game.

Clawdia is a boss monster featured in the Summer Beach Party, in the centre of the Lumbridge Crater. She is a large crustacean that appears once every hour at the 45 minute mark, signified by a start of rain in the area. If she is not defeated after 5 minutes, she will retreat. Rewards are still granted to players who have attacked her before that time.

Clawdia deals damage in all attack forms from 1-10% of the player's current life points. All of her attacks will hit in an area-of-effect, damaging players near her target. She has 5 attacks:

  • Melee AoE: This deals damage in a large area in the direction Clawdia is facing.
  • Ranged AoE: A small area of damage in front of her. Clawdia claps her front pincers together and shoots a sonic shockwave, which is only visible in standard detail.
  • Magic DoT: This is a 1x1 DoT (damage over time) attack that lasts about 10 seconds.
  • Water Jet: Clawdia slowly spins and deals typeless damage to players in her line of sight.
  • Splash AoE: This is a very large AoE attack that deals melee damage to all attacking players.

Clawdia has the following attack pattern:

  • 4 auto-attacks
  • Splash AoE
  • 4 auto-attacks
  • Magic DoT
  • 4 auto-attacks
  • Splash AoE
  • 4 auto-attacks
  • Water Jet

Deaths to Clawdia are not safe, meaning items are lost upon death and Hardcore Ironman Mode players will lose a life. However, since Clawdia does damage according to your current health, it is very difficult for her to kill you.

The title Lifeguard [Name] is acquired after helping defeat Clawdia 50 times.

It was possible to defeat Clawdia more than once per hour by switching worlds, but with the Beach's return in 2016, players can only receive drops from Clawdia once per hour, and only one kill per hour counts towards the title. Clawdia despawns in 5 minutes if not killed, but players who have engaged her in combat will still be rewarded.

Before the event when players could hand in sand one possible dialogue has Reyna noticing a small crustacean in one of the buckets. During the event, she states to the player that Clawdia arrived at the beach in one of the buckets of sand donated, then an "adorable little creature". The Wizards' Tower believes that the Anima Mundi appointed Clawdia as one of its defenders to retaliate for the battles that have happened in the area, most notably the Battle of Lumbridge.[1]

Clawdia plays a small role in Gower Quest, appearing in at the Behind the Scenes bar. Attempting to talk to her will bring up a message that she cannot talk as she was never given a chathead.

It is not possible to attack Clawdia with a deathtouched dart.[2]

Drops[edit | edit source]

Being in combat with Clawdia at any point before she is defeated or retreats can grant 1 to 5 rewards. Players must be on the beach to receive said rewards; leaving the beach when Clawdia is defeated or retreats does not give rewards. The possible rewards are:

It looks like she grew up! I have sent word to the wizards at the Wizards' Tower and they believe that the little tyke is the land retaliating for the battles in the area. That Gielinor is, well, unhappy, and has used the Anima Mundi to create a defender."
