Staff on Stryke

Staff on Stryke is an achievement that requires the player to kill a desert strykewyrm while wearing a full slayer helmet and wielding an ancient staff.

A player may use a full slayer helmet or any upgraded variants, as well as any recoloured version of those, but not a normal slayer helmet. If the player has their slayer helmet on the slayer helmet stand at the Anachronia base camp, it must be removed and worn for the kill to count. The staff cannot be borrowed. Anything can be used to kill the strykewyrm, as long as the staff and helm are equipped through the whole fight. When all requirements are met, a player does not need a slayer task to kill a strykewyrm. Using a familiar will draw the strykewyrm's attention and cause it to stop fighting, yielding the message "It's not after you..."

This achievement cannot be completed while in a group.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This achievement used to be a task prior to the release of the Achievements System on 18 April 2017.
  • This achievement used to require the full slayer helmet to be fully charged with 50 combat scrolls, however, on 4 June 2018, enchanted headgear was removed from the game, making the old version of this achievement impossible to complete for a time. This was later fixed.
    • The above fix also removed the requirement of using the Ancient Magicks spellbook to complete this achievement.
  • The achievement was incompleteable in March 2019.[2]
