Grenwalls are Hunter creatures requiring a Hunter level of 77 to catch. The only places these creatures are located is in the forests of Isafdar, inside the Gorajo resource dungeon, on Anachronia, and in the grenwall portal area which requires a grenwall quota ticket and access to Tirannwn.
They are caught using box traps, which must be baited with raw pawya meat. The bait will be consumed on a failed catch; however, there is a chance that you may receive it back on a successful catch. Upon completion of the medium Tirannwn achievements, bait is no longer needed to catch grenwalls. When caught, they give 726 Hunter experience and drop 18-21 grenwall spikes, which can be used to make extreme ranging potions or used as an alternative to arrow shafts. They may also drop an assortment of grimy herbs, from ranarr to dwarf weed (excluding spirit weed, wergali, and snapdragon). It can be advantageous to bring a bonecrusher for easy prayer experience and a herbicide for unwanted herbs. Alternatively, bringing a herb bag can be helpful for storing the collected herbs.

Grenwalls can also be caught through the grenwall portal at Big Chinchompa in the Tree Gnome Stronghold, consuming a grenwall quota ticket per catch.

Strategy[edit | edit source]
Method 1[edit | edit source]
If the player has not completed the Tirannwn tasks, they can hunt grenwalls in combination with pawyas at hunting locations within Isafdar. Players should take a fruit bat familiar with at least 100 Fruit Bat scroll (Fruitfall)s to a hunter spot that contains both grenwalls and pawyas. Surround a grenwall spawn location with three traps, all baited with raw pawya meat, and use the remaining two, baited with papayas, to hunt pawyas. Continually cast fruitfall to replenish the supply of papayas and if necessary bait 3 traps, instead of two, with papayas if pawya meat supplies run low. Bank at Lletya when you have a full inventory of herbs, or the nearby deposit box (present only after Deadliest Catch). It is possible to get papaya tree seeds as loot from Pawyas, though this is rare.
Method 2[edit | edit source]
A second method involves buying raw pawya meat and using a banking method to run trips between Lletya and nearby grenwall locations. Using this method you can achieve a higher catch rate per hour. Using a banking method allows you to use a level boosting familiar such as an arctic bear or a beast of burden, such as a war tortoise or pack yak. A player would start at Lletya with 5 box traps, 1 crystal teleport seed, their grenwall spike stack, and possibly a replacement pouch, then fill the remaining inventory space with raw pawya meat.
Method 3[edit | edit source]
With the completion of the medium Tirannwn achievements, the player unlocks the ability to catch grenwalls without the need for bait. This makes training at the locations mentioned in methods 1 and 2 much simpler. Combined with the use of a bonecrusher and herbicide, it eliminates the need for banking altogether. If the player wishes to save the herbs, it is recommended to bring signs of the porter, a herb bag, or a pack yak to use the Pack Yak scroll (Winter Storage), and not use herbicide; (keep in mind that that using porters will also bank the raw pawya meat).
At level 99 Hunter players may gain up to 90,000 experience an hour from hunting grenwalls at the Isafdar locations, with the medium Tirannwn tasks completed. This increases to around 108,000 experience an hour when using Crystallise and Light Form together in these same locations, with no other boosts.
On Anachronia these rates can be increased even further, due to a lack of pawya spawns in the hunting areas. With no pawyas to get caught in traps, the potential capture rate for grenwalls is significantly increased. Using the north-eastern hunting area, with the medium Tirannwn tasks completed, players can gain around 135,000-150,000 experience per hour at level 99. (These rates vary depending on how spread out the traps are and how close to grenwall spawns they are setup). When using Crystallise and Light Form here, with no other boosts, players can gain around 160,000-180,000 experience per hour instead.
Note: When using catch-rate and level boosting items for Hunter, players can easily bolster the catch chance for grenwalls to 100% at these locations. This can almost double the base experience rates for hunting grenwalls, and thus should always be done if the player has access to such items.
Method 4[edit | edit source]
Access to a private hunting area is one of the possible rewards for participating in Big Chinchompa. The maximum amount of points earned per game is 1500, and two games can be completed per day. 300 grenwall quota tickets can be earned per day by spending 3000 Big Chinchompa reward points at either Nyriki Tapio or Mieliki Tapio's shop. The player is required to have access to Tirannwn in order to enter the grenwall portal, as well as a grenwall ticket for every grenwall caught.
The portal is close to a bank, so it only takes 2–3 minutes to restock on raw pawya meat if the player has not completed the medium Tirannwn achievements. If using boosts, with the medium achievements completed, a player may gain around 310,000 Hunter experience an hour from hunting grenwalls within a private hunter area.
Method 5[edit | edit source]
While having access to the dragonkin teleportation network, teleport from the Anachronia base camp to the Moksha ritual site, using the Orthern teleportation device, and then exit the area to end up near the south-east grenwall hunting location. By using protean traps, or teleporting back to Anachronia via the Lodestone Network to bank when the inventory is full and returning, players can catch grenwalls without the hassle of competition found at the other more popular locations.
