The profit rate assumes 250 kills per hour. Your actual profit may be higher or lower depending on your speed.

Cave horrors drop the black mask, worth 1,921,462, at a believed 1/512 rate. They are located in the Mos Le'Harmless Caves, which require Cabin Fever to be completed. You'll also need a light source and a witchwood icon to avoid taking a great deal of damage. The easiest way to get to the caves would be either taking the fairy ring DIP (requires A Fairy Tale III - Battle at Ork's Rift), or taking Bill Teach's boat to Mos Le'Harmless and travelling east from the town.

The cave horrors are a bit spread out, and they have 5,000 life points. With decent armour they don't do enough damage to be very troublesome, but a bunyip or healing abilities can be used if needed. With mid- to high-level equipment, it's very possible to kill 250 cave horrors per hour. They have very few drops besides the black mask worth picking up.
