The Mask of the Yellow Wyrm is a slayer mask obtained from Treasure Hunter or from the Shattered Worlds reward shop for 45 million shattered anima. It is associated with desert strykewyrms. It gives two free teleports to the monster per day, as well as extra Slayer experience while on a slayer task for this monster and double drops on every tenth kill. The extra experience and drops are lost when the mask reaches a certain kill count, at which point it can be transformed into a helm.

After 800 desert strykewyrm kills, it will turn into a Helm of the Parched Wyrm.

Benefits[edit | edit source]

The teleport
  • Once every three days, the next slayer assignment the player receives will be desert strykewyrms. They will still need to go to a Slayer Master who normally assigns these creatures (Kuradal or Morvran). If they do not, the player will be told which Slayer Master assigns them. This does not work if they are in the process of setting up a co-op slayer assignment. The cooldown is shared across all three wyrm masks. The cooldown period of this ability may be checked via the "Check Kills" option on the item's right-click menu.
  • Twice per day, this mask can be used to teleport directly east of Al Kharid near the Abbey of St. Elspeth Citharede.
  • The mask confers the same damage boost against desert strykewyrms as the Slayer helm.
  • Killing desert strykewyrms while wearing this mask will grant additional Slayer experience equivalent to the Slayer level required to fight them. This is given regardless of the current assignment the player has and in addition to assignment and/or contract experience. The experience awarded by the mask can be boosted by items.
  • Killing desert strykewryms while wearing the mask will grant additional drops for every 10th kill.
  • Every creature killed is tallied while the mask is worn. Each mask has a set amount of kills assigned to it that, once reached, "uses up" the Slayer experience and double drops effects, and turns the mask into a helm. The kill count continues to be tracked beyond this point up to 1,048,575 on the item's tooltip. However, only up to 999,999 can be displayed to others with the "check kills" option.
  • A right-click option outputs total kills of that creature. If the helm has yet to be unlocked, there’s also a message to say how many more kills are needed to do so.
  • After the helm version has been unlocked, the player is free to switch between it and the mask version, as a cosmetic preference only. This does not restore the Slayer experience and double drop effects to the mask.
