Crystal Shapeshifters are Slayer monsters located on Tarddiad after completion of The Light Within, requiring a Slayer level of 80 or higher in order to be harmed.

They are the only source for the ancient elven wedding ring, an item needed to complete the master quest cape achievement, Angs Off My Ring. To reach them, teleport to the World Gate with the Sixth-Age circuit. Interact with the controls directly in front of the character to change the Gate's destination. Rotate the dials until a World gate icon T.png symbol is presented on the Gate (not to be mistaken with the World gate icon I.png or World gate icon L.png symbols for Infernus and Teragard, respectively).

They fight similarly to revenants. They can use all three forms of combat and react accordingly to the player's armour and protection prayers/curses, along with the added threat of being capable of using abilities of their corresponding combat style. Though a shapeshifter starts out in one of its three random forms, it will quickly adjust to whatever the player is weakest against.

In addition to regular abilities in their respective combat style, Crystal Shapeshifters can roll into a spiked ball and charge at the player, dealing approximately 1,500 to 2,500 melee damage. A shapeshifter can roll several times in a row, dealing high damage.

Angof can be spoken with to make the Shapeshifters unaggressive if desired.

Shapeshifters do not wander from their spawn point until they enter combat (being attacked or attacking a target they are aggressive against).

Drops[edit | edit source]

Drop rates estimated based on 83,752 kills from the Drop Log Project, unless otherwise cited.

The average Crystal Shapeshifter kill is worth 11,177 coins.

100% drop[edit | edit source]

Crystal Shapeshifters during the quest only give their 100% drop.

  1. ^ For every piece of crystal armour worn excluding the first piece, the maximum amount of crystals dropped increases by one. For example, using three parts will cause them to drop one to five crystals.
  2. ^ Without wearing any crystal armour pieces, getting two crystals is more common than getting three crystals.
  3. ^ Without wearing any crystal armour pieces, zero to two crystals are dropped with the main drop and one shortly afterwards. The first drop can be boosted with crystal armour.

Main drop[edit | edit source]

Tertiary drops[edit | edit source]

  1. ^ a b The attuned crystal weapon seed and the attuned crystal armour seed may drop at the same time.
  2. ^ The drop rate of the ancient elven wedding ring is increased for every piece of the crystal armour set worn, with attuned crystal armour increasing it considerably.

Rare drop table[edit | edit source]

This monster has access to the rare drop table.
Luck-enhancing items are not required to access the table, but they will increase the chance of accessing the rare drop table and may also improve the loot received from it.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

Crystalline Shapeshifters in armies of Gielinor
  • The Crystal Shapeshifters are based on the Crystalline Shapeshifters that featured in the Armies of Gielinor game as a level 5 unit from Seren, though they share very little similarities with each other in appearance. Unlike most of the level 5 units which are mostly titan class units, the Crystalline Shapeshifter belongs to the warrior class and has the least Strength of all level 5 units, on the other hand the Crystalline Shapeshifter is capable of teleporting on a unit, instantly killing them in the process.
  • In their melee form, Crystal Shapeshifters have a unique melee attack animation where they seemingly attack three times for the duration of the animation, even though the attack hits only once.
  • Crystal Shapeshifters received the following changes due to player complaints:
    • Combat and slayer experience was increased.
    • When a Crystal Shapeshifter shifted styles prior to the change, the player would have to click on them again as they would have "lost" their target even though they were fighting them. This was changed so that it could change styles without turning into a "new" target.
  • Like Bandosian spiritual mages and Zarosian ancient mages, Crystal shapeshifter are one of the few monsters who don't have any wander radius, only moving when attacked.
  • As of 1 February 2018, the highest kill count for this monster was 60,000 kills.[1]
    • This had not increased by 6 May 2018.[2]
