Rock lobster

This article is about monster. For Summoning familiar, see Granite lobster.

Rock lobsters are found in the Waterbirth Island Dungeon's fifth sub-level, in room 16. They are similar to giant rock crabs in the fact that they are initially disguised as large rocks, but will attack players that approach. The lobsters are weak to magic attacks and can hit frequently into the low 300s. They attack every other game tick, making them dangerous if the player has low defense and allows multiple lobsters to attack at once.

Before the Evolution of Combat update, rock lobsters were commonly killed by wealthy players because of their common crimson charm drops. Using the right technique, such as ice bursting or ice barraging, killing rock lobsters was one of the fastest ways of obtaining charms. They are still a viable way of gathering charms for lower level players due to their low health, high spawn, and high charm drop rate compared to monsters with similar stats.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Rock lobsters are weak to water spells. Players are advised to kill them by casting Water Wave, Ice Burst, or better using a staff, such as a crystal staff or better, and magic power armour, such as robes of subjugation. Low-levelled players may wish to bring an emergency teleport and food, such as sharks. As rock lobsters frequently drop charms, players should use a charming imp. Soul Split can be used to eliminate the need for food or safe-spotting. Players may also use Blood Burst/Barrage in order to heal.
