Jungle strykewyrms are Slayer monsters that are located south of Feldip Hills and west of Oo'glog, next to the three fishing spots along the western coast. They are accessible at 73 Slayer and can only be attacked when given as a Slayer assignment. In order to fight them, you must click one to "Investigate" the mound. Your character will do an animation in which you stomp on the ground. Only once you have done this will the strykewyrm come to the surface to fight.

The quickest ways to reach Jungle strykewyrms are by using the South Feldip Hills Teleport spell, a ring of duelling's Warforge teleport option, the Mask of the Green Wyrm teleport option, the Oo'glog lodestone, or using a Spirit Tree to get to the South Feldip Hills.

Locations[edit | edit source]

Attacks[edit | edit source]

Jungle strykewyrms have three attack types:

  • A fairly weak and inaccurate melee attack which can hit diagonally.
  • A fairly weak magic attack that looks like a large purple ball which explodes upon impact.
  • A special attack when the wyrm tunnels down into the ground and then bursts out beneath the spot where the player was standing with tremendous force, hitting 900s. This attack can be avoided by running away. (This attack can be prevented by standing with your back or side to an obstacle, such as rocks. This is highly recommended.)

It is highly recommended to bring antipoison unless you are high level with access to the Soul Split curse or other self healing. If As a First Resort has been completed, the thermal bath at Oo'glog, a short distance away, will provide a 10 minute anti-poison effect.

Healing on site[edit | edit source]

There are lobster, tuna/swordfish, shark and big net fishing spots along the coastline, near the strykewyrms. Jungle vegetation can also be cut nearby. Since the tool belt update, the player has access to an unlimited food supply by utilising this. Alternatively to fire, a bunyip familiar and swallow whole scrolls make for a good healing strategy. The wyrms also drop a modest amount of food, which combined with Soul Split, Vampyrism aura or scrimshaws, or healing weapons and armour can be sufficient.

Weaknesses[edit | edit source]

Jungle strykewyrms are weak against stab attacks. They are also immune to poison (as shown by Monster Examine), due to their venomous nature.

Once the strykewyrms spawn to the surface, whether after a special attack or an inspection, the wyrm will not attack for a few seconds. This gives you the opportunity to attack it without retaliation. When asked for tips, Slayer Masters note that they are inherently passive creatures, who become aggressive upon sensing the slayer's own ill intent.

As with all strykewyrms, the Jungle strykewyrm will only perform its tunnelling attack if the 3x3 square area around the attacking player is free from obstructions. As the jungle area is littered with rocks and trees, players are likely to be able to move into a position where they can attack without fear of such a retaliation. If abilities are used properly, it is rare that they will have a chance to tunnel. This attack is easily dodged by moving out of the area immediately around the player when the strykewyrm begins to tunnel.

Since they attack with melee most of the time, melee armour is suggested for killing them. Using attack and strength potions can increase your stay times and make the tasks and kill go faster, eliminating extra damage that may occur from slower kills. There is no need to bring super defence potions because they drop them quite frequently.
