Living rock patriarchs are huge creatures that randomly spawn in the Living Rock Caverns. When a patriarch appears, any player around the area can attack it, but only the first player who fights it can tag it to get its drops. Protect from Melee is recommended, as they are quite powerful for their combat level. When slain, the patriarch always drops its entire drop table (which consists of four unique items in various quantities) at once. Equipping all pieces of the Magic golem outfit or the Fury shark outfit renders all living rock creatures unaggressive.

They spawn erratically every 2 hours, tending to appear in the south-west, south-east, and north-east corners of the cavern.

Drops[edit | edit source]

The living rock patriarch's guaranteed drops are worth a total of 117,274 coins.

Universal drops[edit | edit source]

These items are dropped alongside main drops.
