Mutated zygomites (/ˈzɡəmt/ (🔊listen) ZY-ghə-myte)[1] are monsters that appear as Fungi until provoked (Pick Fungi) that require level 57 Slayer to damage. They resemble giant mushrooms and are only found in Zanaris, near the Cosmic Altar (level 65) or near the furnace (level 58).

Zygomites can be occasionally assigned as an optional Slayer Challenge by Chaeldar. If a player accept the challenge, she will say that an experimental spray must be used on them for tests and the results must be brought back to her when the slayer task is finished. Completing a mutated zygomite slayer task will reward 10,000 Slayer experience and 25 Slayer points.

Locations[edit | edit source]

Strategy[edit | edit source]

A Fungi

Zygomites have a very weak and inaccurate melee attack (headbutt) that only deals one damage but also a normal ranged attack (shooting a cloud of spores) that hit up to 168 damage. They are weak to slash; even when planning to use ranged or magic, it is a good idea to stay in melee range so it will use its weak melee attack as well.

To kill one, a player needs to reduce it to below about 350 life points and then use fungicide spray on it to kill it; they are available from any slayer master. The spray must be reloaded with fungicide every ten kills, which can be bought from Chaeldar at the same time. Fungicide canisters fully reload the fungicide spray. Players cannot sell the spray or reloads back to the slayer master afterwards, so only buy what is needed. Alternatively, buy the Fungicide shaker for 60,000 coins which acts as an infinite spray that can be put on the tool belt.

Slayer Challenge[edit | edit source]

Chaeldar will occasionally offer a special task in place of a regular slayer task. The player can decline to take the special task without penalty. If the player accepts the special task, completing the task:

  • Rewards 10,000 extra slayer experience.
  • Rewards 25 Slayer points.
  • Will count towards the player's consecutive task count, which is used for Slayer points. Does NOT count as task completed if it is a 10th or 50th task to be completed, meaning the player can safely complete the challenge without forfeiting their consecutive task bonus.

Chaeldar's special task is for the player to test an experimental fungicide spray against ten Mutated zygomites and survive to return to her and tell her the results of the test. The player uses the spray in place of the normal Fungicide spray when the zygomite the player is attacking has been reduced to 20 life points or less. When applied, the experimental spray will have one of the following effects, chosen randomly:

  • The experimental spray has sent the zygomite into a furious rage! The zygomite temporarily turns red, heals a bit, and attacks faster. It can be killed by reducing its life points to zero without needing another application of the spray.
  • The experimental spray has healed the zygomite! The zygomite temporarily turns green and its life points are restored to maximum. It can be killed by reducing its life points to zero without needing another application of the spray.
  • The experimental spray has killed the zygomite! The zygomite is killed.

Players must return to Chaeldar and speak to her to complete the challenge; simply killing ten zygomites with the experimental spray does not finish the task. The spray cannot be used to kill more than the required ten zygomites.

Universal drops[edit | edit source]

Universal drops are dropped by nearly every monster outside of Daemonheim.
These items are dropped alongside main drops.

Update history[edit | edit source]

The update history project is a work-in-progress – not all updates to this topic may be covered below. See here for how to help out!
  • ninja 26 October 2020 (Update):
    • Monsters with multiple variants will now consistently spawn as those variants when newly placed in the Personal Slayer Dungeon.
      • This includes zygomites.
  • patch 21 February 2011 (Update):
    • Zygomites are now called mutated zygomites in game again.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The name Zygomite is probably based on the phylum of fungi, Zygomycota, though these fungi do not produce mushrooms.
  • If players try to attack something else while still in combat, instead of the usual I'm already under attack message, the message box will display There's a rather large mushroom monster trying to attack you at the moment. Maybe you should deal with it first.
  • If a frog or other Zanaris event happens during battle, the Zygomite will keep attacking with a "thump" sound (melee attack) without any hitsplats but will still be doing damage while remaining immune to attack until the event leaves. This may be a glitch.
  • If another player picks one of the fungi and runs away and another player is still there, the Zygomite will eventually turn around and start attacking the other player, shouting "I'm coming for you!"
  • If a player is fighting a Zygomite and runs away while there are no other players around it, it will return to its original fungus form but will still move around so it looks like a little moving mushroom. This is a glitch and has not been fixed yet.
