  1. ^ Jagex. Mod Timbo's Twitter account. 19 January 2018. (Archived from the original on 22 January 2019.) Mod Timbo: "1/1280 if you hit the RDT, requires T4 luck to be worn in order to get a hold of it. Of course there are tons of different ways to access the RDT so it changes massively depending on what you're fighting, what you're wearing etc."
  2. ^ Indicates a failed 1/10 roll for Hazelmere's signet ring.
  3. ^ Indicates a roll for Hazelmere's signet ring without tier 4 luck.
  4. ^ Requires tier 4 luck. Rarer than the vecna skull.

Update history[edit | edit source]

The update history project is a work-in-progress – not all updates to this topic may be covered below. See here for how to help out!
  • patch 28 May 2019 (Update):.
    • Enemies in the Temple of Aminishi can no longer use the 'Smash' ability, with the exception of 2 minibosses.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • While they are untaggable monsters, if they are directly engaged and not attacked within 10 seconds, they will return to their idle stance, restore all lost health and become unaggressive if they weren't able to spot a player.
  • Prior to the patch notes update of 28 May 2019, they were the only normal monster in the Temple of Aminishi capable of performing Smash.
  • Damage taken in story mode of elite dungeons was reduced from 33% of normal mode to 10% in an update on the 15th of October 2018.
