The granite lobster can be used for the following things:
- Combat: It has a combat level of 88 and provides Defence experience when it deals damage. In addition, its scroll, Crushing Claw, may inflict up to 964 life points' damage and temporarily decrease an opponent's Defence by five levels.
- Fishing: Grants an invisible +4 Fishing level boost. It does not grant abilities above the player's level (e.g. the ability to catch new kinds of fish). It does, however, increase the success rate of catching fish. Because of its large invisible boost, the granite lobster is fairly popular among players training fishing.
- Forager: While the player is fishing, this familiar has a random chance to forage for raw swordfish and raw sharks, even if the player does not have the necessary level to catch these fish. It also gives the player 10% of the experience for catching the foraged items. It can hold up to 30 of its foraged items in its own inventory. It appears to collect the highest quantity of fish if the player is fishing sharks. One granite lobster often generates 3-13 swordfish and 3-13 sharks, giving 10 xp for each swordfish and 11 xp for each shark foraged.
