Black Mask drop rate[edit source]

Someone had added that the drop rate of the Black Mask was 1 in 800 due to the Smoking Kills quest, and the greater market for them due to the Slayer Helm.( to put the record straight ROW DOES NOT HELP WITH BLACK MASKS. CHECK RHQ AND MANY OTHER SOURCES...) 23:33, February 18, 2011 (UTC) XAMDOIZ.

Could someone please help verify if this is accurate, and if so, I will add it in. Dogtag333 12:24, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

It most likely is because I've been there for days and no mask drop. However someone added 30-100 kills for a black mask and I can tell you that is definitely wrong.

The black mask is about a 2:1576 ratio i got my first one at 1-100 kills 2nd one was at 387th kill now i'm at 700 kills or so with none, the ring of Wealth seems to lower the chance.

The current claim that a Black mask is "not extremely rare" and a drop is 1/300 are both definitely wrong. I've killed about 560 of these things through slayer tasks and a further 200 through general boredom. I've not had one drop. Black cavalier.png Zenihdrol Tribal top (blue).png 02:35, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

The drop rate claim of 1/300 is most definitively wrong, the drop rate is of course 1/150.

Oh yes, of course.
Unless someone presents me with a fully comprehensive drop log of 10,000+ monsters, I see no reason to list any estimated drop rate. If you want a 'rareness' thing, I'd use semi-rare or rare - not a drop you get very often, but one you get a lot more often than the likes of a visage. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 21:31, September 15, 2009 (UTC)

Got 3 long bones, 1 curved bone, 3 blue charms, 4 torstol seeds, and 2 black masks in about 1000 kills. If they considered to be "rare" and "very rare", the black mask should be too.

Well, I have just completed a Slayer Task of 157 Cave Horrors, and within 80 of those kills, I already had 2 Black masks. So I think that the rate is about 1/110.My name is 19:36, March 29, 2010 (UTC)

You can't judge the droprate after killing just 157 horrors... Tokkul detail.png Inhaps talk 20:32, March 29, 2010 (UTC)

I got 2 slayer masks in 2 consecutive tasks of less than 170 and i got one each task

In my experiences, the drop rate has been relatively low. I managed to get one within my first two trips, and another within the next three. I later did a slayer task of about 180 and got none after about 3-5 trips. I just did one trip and got it towards the end of the trip. I think it's safe to say that 1/300 is about right. It's not extreamly rare. Quest point cape.pngSk8r dan man Quests 04:43, May 5, 2010 (UTC)

i used guthans to camp at horrors for 10 hours at a time, so far on new account i got about 8 black mask drops in 4 nights, i usually kill about 3-4k horrors a night so thats 8 masks in about 12-16k kills and i also got 5 straved effingys and 3 clues

                  • I have been doing them a while now, my username is jotheman0, iv'e probably killed about 5000ish cave horrors, its where i get most of my money. Honestly - the reason you are viewing this is because you want to know how rare black masks are... right? Let me just say one thing - i have made at least 25-35m doing cave horrors, within a month. Aprox 200-300 cave horrors a day. It's a fairly frequent drop, you can get one (usually) within 300 kills, i recommend doing cave horrors to anyone - they are a fantastic experience and money combination. Just one tip tho, use bones to peaches - instead of guthans, i notice some people bring guthans & ive tried it myself - bones to peaches work better, bring around 30 for a good trip.***********
I did a total of 2752 kills, 865 kills with ring of wealt (0 drops) and 1887 kills withought row (6 drops) The drop rate would be 1/314 without the row, so i would go for the 1/300 theory. edit, forgot to sign....--Jonaboy 22:25, December 16, 2009 (UTC)

Before you Read Please stop spamming this page. The drop ratio of the black mask is = to that of a clue scroll or a effigy. if you are trying to make money you will be more successful by killing anything else such as kq or barrows. The ring of Wealth does increase the drop ratio  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

layout issue[edit source]

Text is overlapping infobox. Tried to move things around to fix, but no luck.

~ I killed about 1400-2000 and honestly never got one black mask... I guess I just suck at life. (killed them in like april or may of 2010)

December of 2012 25th of december till 1st of Jan 2013 i did about 20 hours of Cave horrors, and I managed to gain 7 Black masks, so bo be realistic, you need to stay there for 2-3 hours per mask drop. I find the longer you stay the beter the odd's. (ALL OF THIS WAS DONE WEARING A WEALTH) Try hopping worlds between drops to maximize your potential.

Advisable not to bring a ring of Wealth?[edit source]

So they way the ring of Wealth apparently works is when you get a rare drop, it'll make the drop more valuable. The black mask alchs for 1800 gp. It's also in the same drop table category as a rune spear, rare. So it's probably not a good idea to pack one with you, is it?

It seems like that, I went there with a ring of Wealth and got no black masks in over 300 kills, even though the article says it's 1 in AROUND 150... Maybe I'm just very unlucky though... Quest point cape detail.png Brux Talk 00:55, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
I say the chance's to get a black mask is 1/200 Twig Talk 772kZGs.png 05:23, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

DONT bring a ring of Wealth its alc price is lower than other items

get EDUCATED about the ring of Wealth's functions. it does not take away normal drops, it only removes "no drop" spaces and increases rare drop spaces. it does not affect UNIQUE drops such as abyssal whip, dark bow, and of course, black mask. ring of Wealth has no bearing on your drops of a mask. they do not take away common drop spaces like every runescapetard thinks. -Drisari

ring of Wealth with black masks[edit source]

omfg, had a ring of Wealth on, and i read this article saying not to have a ring of Wealth. therefore, i took it off. on my next kill i got a black mask!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! definately no ring of Wealth when looking for black masks!!!--12:07, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

Of course getting a mask in the next drop is just pure luck. I don't believe that the ring of Wealth would considerable lower the amount of masks dropped; if it did, then you would get dragon/rune spears more often. Plus, we don't know if Jagex has defined the rune spears a "rare" drop. dictature 12:17, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
Naw d00D, I think he might be right O_o What's weird is that a month ago, I was killing cave horrors in hope of a mask, I killed about 500 of them with a ring of Wealth, no mask. 3 weeks later, I went into the cave, killed exactly FIVE cave horrors with NO Ring of Wealth. I got a black mask. That is crazy lucky. Either me and just have awesome luck like that, or, the RoW just TOTALLY nerfs drops. Wink Quest point cape.pngLil Diriz 77 Talk Summoning-icon.png 21:39, September 15, 2009 (UTC)
I had killed about 5 and I lagged out (on a 32 mb/s connection...) and when I had gotten back on first kill, I got a D chain....i mean black mask.
ring of Wealth dosent work like that there is a rare drop table something that almost every high level monster in runescape will drop like left half of dragon sheild is one thing on the rare drop table ring of Wealth effects those items giving you a beter chance of getting those items not items specific to certain monsters like the abbysal whip from abbysal demons or black mask from cave horrors

black maskes with wealths.[edit source]

since people say with and without i killed them switching off wealth each kill. i got 2 with wealth and 3 without so you might want to just not bring one, also i was there for about 4 hours to get 5 masks.

dodo68.224.51.55 06:09, November 14, 2009 (UTC) Thier right bringing a ring of Wealth doesn't make a difference as far as drop rates go. I hunt them to make my money sometimes you can be down there for a long time before you get what you want I'd have to dya the drop rate is around 1/200 it all depends on one of my slayer tasks I got 2 in one trip.the masks aren't as rare to get as people say they are.

Black Mask Drop Rate[edit source]

Of course there is a lot of contraversy over the drop rate of black masks. There is no exact drop ratio of a black mask. I would say it is between 1/100 and 1/500 kills for a black mask. It really all depends. Yesterday I got 2 mask drops in 1 load which took about an hour. Today, im having horrible luck. I must say that it is a GREAT feeling to right click a drop and see a black mask (10). Good luck all of you Cave Horror-Killers. :)

My drops during this slayer task[edit source]

Monsters killed: 178

3 Black Masks (10), 1 Snapdragon seed, 1 Torstol seed, 2 Clues (lvl-3, reward 121K + 113K), 2 Long bones, 1 Loop half of a key.

Also plenty of other seeds... Always with Ring of Wealth. One of the best tasks so far :) --Dotyfree 11:15, December 7, 2009 (UTC)

I got 3 Black mask and 2 Snaps and a great amount of charms (Killed:175) and with a ring of Wealth. Row's are quite good Twig Talk 772kZGs.png 01:27, December 16, 2009 (UTC)

Cave horrors have such nice drops, I rarely leave a session dissapointed. I'm supprised people don't kill these more often. I'm usually all alone down there.Quest point cape.pngSk8r dan man Quests 06:57, May 5, 2010 (UTC)

Most Effective Armor[edit source]

I've never went to cave horrors before because all i do is slay really (and use laplock/new slayer master) and wanted to try out sumonna so i can get these as a task maby.... and the guide isnt really clear on what armor is really effective... so im wondering from yall that have been what is a good (cheep) method of going to them... im cb 121...99 str and 85 def/attk so if that helps any... and we need to try and make this more clear in the article itself. Thanks -- Slayer helmet.png Hmanballer talk | edit count | sign | HS Fire cape.png 20:08, December 13, 2009 (UTC)

I'd suggest:

Head - Helm of neitiznot or Slayer helmet (on task)

Cape - Fire cape or Ardougne cloak 3 (if using zammy spear) or any other cape

Neck- Fury or Glory Witchwood icon ONLY

Weapon - Abbysal whip or Zamorakian spear (to exploit their stab weakness)

Body - Karil's Top

Legs - Karil's Bottom

Shield - Rune defender (if using whip)

Hands - Barrows gloves or best available

Boots - Dragon boots

Ring - Do not use the ring of Wealth as it does not affect the drop rate of black mask(can use berserker but the tiny str bonus isn't so useful here)

I usually take Enhanced excalibur and 2 or 3 Bunyips along with a Summoning potion and 2 monks. I can last there for about 350 kill with these things.

That is all, good luck! Tokkul detail.png Inhaps talk 21:04, December 13, 2009 (UTC)

Thanks Inhaps helped out alot. I lasted 424 kills then left :) wonderful method! Happy Editing -- Slayer helmet.png Hmanballer talk | edit count | sign | HS Fire cape.png 00:36, December 14, 2009 (UTC)

this is my mask drop =] got from like 140th kill. Had 130 kills with wealth, then I tried with no wealth and it worked.

Inconclusive. 130 kills is just simply not enough to say if its better with our without. You'd need a couple of thousand at least. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 15:55, December 27, 2009 (UTC)

I used to slay these with full black dragonhide, mind shield, slayer helm, obby cape, whip, d'boots, and of course, witchwood icon. I'd always need about 5 sharks a trip, and I brought my dragon halberd to safe spot 'em if things got ugly. Just recently I aquired full Guthan's and I found it to be very effective. I swaped out gauntlets for spiky black dragonhide vamps for a little extra mage def, and kept d'boots and obby cape for str bonuses. Once or twice I found myself gettin low on health, about 250LP, but the nearby albino bats made for safe easy healing. I didn't need any prayer help either. If you have Guthan's, it's probably the easiest method and doesn't require any food. The Guthan's spear's stab attack didn't hurt either.Quest point cape.pngSk8r dan man Quests 06:54, May 5, 2010 (UTC)

Furthermore, I recently found that while wearing full Guthan's, you can use you're low mage defence to your advantage by wearing a ring of recoil. they will regularly hit 20-60s, and bringing a few rings of recoil will reflect a good percentage of that damage back to them. It seems reasonable to assume that beause the ring of Wealth increases one's chances as getting a drop from the rare drops table, it would lessen the chance at getting a black mask. The price a black mask greatly excedes that of most rare drop table items, so I figured I'd try and use ring with better effects, and the ring of recoil seems to do the trick.

Cave Horror Mask Drop Rate is Low[edit source]

I've killed over 1500 of these jacks for Slayer. Only gotten 1 black mask. I use a Berserker ring.

Rarity[edit source]

First off, there are 7-8 headings talking about the Black Mask drop rate, second, the article says that Clue Scrolls are "somewhat common". Is that an actual number or is that someone randomly writing what they feel?  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by ItsAlexPan (talk).

That fact that they drop clue scrolls commonly should be removed anyway.

{{Cquote2|Please be aware that it is possible to defeat lots of clue dropping NPCs and not receive a clue scroll because the chance of receiving a clue is random.|[ RuneScape game guide]}} -Tokkul detail.png Inhaps talk 18:07, February 24, 2010 (UTC)

which slayer masters assign these as tasks?--TaSManiaC 08:07, March 26, 2010 (UTC)

Black mask cave horrors[edit source]

I have been in this dungeon for about 3 hours now.. gotten maybe 250-300 kills, i havent gotten a mask yet, but so far have made 400k off of the misc items.

as far as the ring of Wealth goes, i dont think it has any major changes in the drop rate. i read this thread and tried killing about half of them with the ring, then the other half without a ring,

maybe its just me, but i havent seemed to have luck with any of these two options. so i conclude neither helps with the drop rate of the masks.

April 1 2010

Max hit.[edit source]

Just notifying you guys, I'm at Cave horrors, and I got hit for 94. Updating max hit. Icecold531 12:59, April 2, 2010 (UTC)

Ring of Wealth will not help...?[edit source]

The ring of Wealth will help you get more valuable drops, like the Black Mask and rune things. But the effect is so slight I'd recommend taking a more useful ring, like Ring of slaying in its place. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 05:05, April 12, 2010 (UTC)

The ring of Wealth doesn't affect mask drops in any way (see the rare drop table article), as they are a unique drop. I'd just bring the ring of slayign in my inventory and wear a wealth (it can't hurt, right?) Djur 17:58, June 29, 2011 (UTC)

It's all about luck![edit source]

I did a slayer task of about 160, got no mask. I was feeling lucky, so I went back, for that trip at about the 30th kill, I got a Black Mask! I was really proud, and didn't feel lucky anymore, but about 5-10 minutes of killing later, I got another one! I didn't believe it, but it happened! I think the chances are still 1/200, but really, it's just about luck. (April 12th 2010.)

I killed maybe 1000 cave horrors no drop... Then about two weeks later i saw they also dropepd clue scrolls so i went back to test my luck, and 3rd kill black mask 5th kill clue and like 40th kill another clue... its all luck- cobra

Difficulty of these is greatly exaggerated[edit source]

I'm fighting these now with 76 defence, 75 magic, black dhide body and legs, slayer helm, dragon boots, dragon square shield, whip, barrows gloves (RFD), and obsidian cape and they're rarely hitting on me, and when they do they hit very low. The recommendation of 90 defence is quite silly. KefkaticFanatic 22:51, April 19, 2010 (UTC)

I've been fighting them with a bunyip, karil's and zs and (and 90 def). Like most monsters, it seems that their accuracy fluctuates: sometimes they hit a few times consecutively, while at other times they don't hit at all. But agreed; 90 def is silly. Not mendatory at all and even as a recommendation it's pathetic. A good candidate for an edit. Kong No Foo 18:17, April 24, 2010 (UTC)

To be honest, the whole tactics section is flawed and in dire need of a huge re-write. I started writing a little cave horror guide in my sanbox, although I never got to finish it. Tokkul detail.png Inhaps talk 21:59, April 24, 2010 (UTC)

IS black mask considered "rare"?[edit source]

The ring of Wealth increases the chances of "rare" drops. Is the black mask "rare"?

I haven't read posts above where this is discussed, but the ring of Wealth does not effect the drop rate of the black mask becuase it is a cave horror specific drop. Similarly, The ring of Wealth will not effect the drop rates of defenders, or cockatrice heads, or other creature specific drops. It only increaces the drop rates of items on the rare drop table for creatures that grant access to it. This does not mean that the ring of Wealth would be completely useless when fighting cave horrors, because they do grant access to the rare drop table, but it will have no postive effects on the drop rates of the black mask. For more information on how the ring of Wealth works, please visit the Ring of Wealth page and the Rare drop table page.Quest point cape.pngSk8r dan man Quests 06:34, May 5, 2010 (UTC)

Black mask is rare, but its a unique drop, RoW only affects items on the rare DROP TABLE, which is shared between a lot of mobs81.166.32.103 18:34, May 3, 2013 (UTC)

Clue scroll drop rates[edit source]

I've taken several trips to the cave horrors, and with every successive session, I find myself getting a clue scroll within the first load or two. The first few times this happened, I figured it to be lucky coincidence, but now it's happend several times and I suspect that the clue scroll drop rates for cave horrors are higher than those of other monsters. I'd like to hear if anyone else has had similar experiences before posting it on the page. Would someone else please take the time to research this further? Don't forget to do each clue scroll after you get it, otherwise you won't receive any more. Thanx, and happy horror hunting. Quest point cape.pngSk8r dan man Quests 23:16, May 6, 2010 (UTC)

There are no "drop rates" of clue scrolls, all clue scrolls drops are considered as random.

Just felt like chiming in here, nothing is "random" with computers, it is linked to a number which is psudo random but still, a number so the drop will, on a large average, happen every x amount of times... even if they compaired a random number to another random number it would average out. -- 00:22, June 22, 2011 (UTC)

Equipment[edit source]

Don't know if anybody has realized this, but Void Knight seems to be the best armor you can wear for the cave horrors. it provides a total of 2 less magic resistance than black dragonhide + helm of neitiz + barrows gloves, and 15 less strength bonus, but provides the set effect that more than compensates for this loss in strength. I think we should add something about equipment to wear, and I think VK armor should be included.



ok so I was killing horrors w/ wealth ring when I read this talk page and took it off. And a few kills later... A BLACK MASK!!!!!!!!!!

Pure coincidence! The ring of Wealth has absolutely no effect on the black mask's droprate. Tokkul detail.png Inhaps talk 07:38, May 29, 2010 (UTC)

On the contrary, it is not pure coincidence. Mostly coincidence, sure, but not purely. The ring of Wealth has an effect on the drop rate of all possible drops, except probably charms and maybe herbs for cave horrors which seem to drop herbs seperately from ordinary drops.

To explain how the ring of Wealth effects all drops, let me try and paint a picture for you. Now suppose that every time you kill a cave horror, you get to draw from a bag with 5 marbles in it. One of those marbles represents a black mask. Three of them are other drops, maybe seeds, runes, or arrmor. The last Marble, if drawn, lets you grab from a separate bag containing marbles representing items from the rare drops table. The probablility of grabing a black mask marble is 1:5 or 20%. The probability of grabing one of the other drops is much higher, 3:5 or 60%. The probability of getting the marble which lets you draw from the rare drops table bag is 1:5. Now suppose you're wearing the Ring of Wealth. This basicaly puts another rare drops table marble in the bag. Now the probability of getting the rare drops table marble is 2:6 or about 33% The chance doesn't double, but it does increase significantly. The probability of getting and ordinary drop is now 3:6 or 50%. As you can see, this has decreased somewhat. The probability of getting a black mask is now 1:6 or about 17% This has also decreased slightly.

Of course, these ratios are purely for demonstration and are very inaccurate representations of the Cave Horror's true drop rates. The purpose of this demonstration is to prove that the ring of Wealth not only increases the drop rate of rare drop table items by a calculatable degree, but also slightly decreases the drop rates of all other items by a less significant, yet very real degree. Quest point cape.pngSk8r dan man Quests 06:53, June 13, 2010 (UTC) The above information has been proven inaccurate and should not be trusted.Quest point cape.pngSk8r dan man Quests 01:23, June 15, 2010 (UTC)

Incorrect, based on what Jagex has told us. Using your marbles example, wearing a ring of Wealth does not add another marble to the first bag, but instead removes most of the "no-drop" marbles from the second bag. The probabilities of stuff from the first bag are unchanged. See [ the game guide explanation]. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 14:16, June 13, 2010 (UTC)
Your right. I missunderstood the effect of the ring of Wealth. This is really quite relieving to know that there are no negative effects to the ring of Wealth, aside from the fact that it could be replaced with a ring with other effects. Is this information posted on the Rare Drop Table page and Ring of Wealth page? I strongly advise that it be posted there if it isn't already. As I recall, it was the information on one or both of those pages that lead me to missunderstand the effects of the ring of Wealth as I did. Feel free to help rectify the misleading information that others and I have posted.Quest point cape.pngSk8r dan man Quests 01:23, June 15, 2010 (UTC)
I know it may just be coincidental, and I do understand how the Ring of Wealth works, but after a whole 2 days of killing Cave Horrors and no Black Masks, I decide to take off my Ring of Wealth. Two kills later I get a Black Mask drop. There has to be some sort of truth to this.
We hear stories like this all of the time, but honestly, it's purely coincidence according to all of the information provided for us by Jagex. If we can't trust their information on the game, then I don't know who's we can. Quite frankly, the only reason we keep hearing stories like yours all of the time is not that there's any proof to the theory inspired by your experience. The reson for this is that in the rare and coincidental senario that you've experienced is posted by everyone else who shares your experience. Suppose everyone who'd ever gotten a dragon chainmail drop from a dust devil posted it on the talk page. The drop rate of the dragon chainmail might seem much higher than it really is because so many people have gotten one, but those several dragon chainmail drops are a very small minority of the the millions of drops recieved from dust devils every day. This is an issue faced with the charm drop logs as well. Someone who gets the rare drop of a blue charm from a monster that drops it very rarely, like a cow, might feel more compelled to tell people and post their drops on the drop log than someone who only got a couple gold or green charms. The minimum of 50 kills to post on charm logs helps with this, but when the drop rate is less than 2%, the logs are more likely to be incorrect. To help with this, I advise posting on charm logs after completing a slayer task, and killing a few extra if your task was less than 50.Quest point cape.pngSk8r dan man Quests 09:01, June 20, 2010 (UTC) In the future, please try to remember to sign your posts on talk pages.

guthan's armor works best[edit source]

i am camping at caves horrors and i am using guthan's it works better cause i don't have to eat. being that i allready tryed the grid guthan's works best. use it if you have the money.

sgined; kree-arrea

i'm gonna agree with this, i've killed thousands upon thousands of these things, gotten 25+ mask drops in total, always hated having to bank once every couple hours, i'm gonna start running a bot and using guthans overnight lol

Its a big wheel fortune drops - drop rates are bullshit[edit source]

The drops are just like a big wheel of fortune. Imagine you have Avantoe seeds, Grimy avantoe, Guam, ect on a Wheel Grimy Guam being a bigger section than Avantoe seeds. Everytime a Cave Horror dies, the wheel is spun and that determines the drop :) Drop rates are bullshit

I have to agree with this. I've killed about 1000 cave horrors, and they dropped a black mask 6 times. I always get a lot of random drops. 1 trip I didn't get a single black mask, the other trip I got 3... I love them as a task though. Mark (talk) 13:57, July 14, 2010 (UTC)

Last night i was at cave horrors for around 3 hours and got 3 masks, today i have been there for a bloody long time, at least 1.000 kills, not one mask but 9 snapdragon seeds, 3 torstols, 600 nats, 170 crimsons etc. After today i dont believe in drop table systems of 1/150 etc. I think if people are unlucky enough, they could be there for weeks w/o getting one. Its realy getting annoying that im getting all the wrong 'rare' items. Snapdragon seeds are considered the same to black masks in terms of the rate in which theyre dropped. So your saying i could of got 9 black masks? Even if i could i wouldnt because my luck is probably one of the worst things youl ever see. Its shocking to say the least. In my opinion you should get one in so many kills no matter what, not relying on this spinning wheel which in theory could never land on black mask EVER. Oh and they dropped watermelon seeds 4 times......(very rare). Im also annoyed at the stupid cave horrors because theyre wearing the bloody masks, why cant i just take it off theyre faces OMG? Lol :) 01:34, July 25, 2010 (UTC)Fitzyiscool2

not true .... black maskes are bonus drops so with that said they drop randomly and the only way to stop it is having bad luck and not getting it ... i got 3 from kill 6453 of them its random and chance so there isnt a ratio for it just like d legs on drag's or visages or d chains

Protect[edit source]

Perhaps a month autoconfirmed protection is in order here? It gets vandalised 5 times a day. Mark (talk) 19:21, August 2, 2010 (UTC)

black mask drop rate table[edit source]

ok, so i tried to make this table for people to record their kills and black mask drops, i tried to base it off of the charm log, but im not that great at wiki format so is a senior editor could fix it to be more like that, it would be great

Cave horror icon.png Black mask.png
Ring slot.png 311 0
Dragonstone ring.png

once again i aint that great of an editor so this was my best shot =\ Masterx3829 19:26, August 9, 2010 (UTC)

ok so u say clue scrolls are all random drops.So are black masks.But you also say because of this they have no drop rate, this is obviously utter nonsense.

A drop rate is just the chance of getting an item,given its a random drop. Its the average monsters to kill before a drop.

Also you say the odds of all monsters dropping a clue are the same, this is clearly not true either. The quote from the

Jmod just states that a drop isnt always on the, for example, 36th kill or something. For example, a turoth (or cave horror)

drops lvl3 clues WAY more often than a green dragon.And if you cross this out like the other "false" statements, it just proves you like things to sound

good and dont care about the truth.

i didnt cross those things out some other person did, and everything in rs has a drop rate thats just the way the game is built, there is always some chance you will get that item and that is what i am trying to find out --Masterx3829 14:44, August 12, 2010 (UTC)

Court Summons[edit source]

I've had this Court Summons drop from a Cave Horror, I'd add it to the drop list but with the new system I don't know exactly how to do it... Also, I wouldn't know if this is a rare or very rare drop... Brainus4447 20:31, August 27, 2010 (UTC)

Vandalism[edit source]

Can whoever keep vandalising this page quit it? makes our jobs harder.

Icon[edit source]

"Without the icon, the scream reduces stats and hitpoints, similar to the effect of a banshee when fought without earmuffs."

i could be wrong but I think the scream only damages you and doesn't reduce any stats. Can someone confirm? 02:11, February 1, 2011 (UTC)

Drop rate of foot bones[edit source]

I've been in the cave horror dungeon for quite some time now, and I get very many foot bone drops.. so many, they're almost a hassle. I personally think it should be marked as common, not uncommon. --

If it's a hassle, simply pick it up, and you'll never get one again ;)
Yeah, foot bones are for the Fur-n-Seek wishlist if u just bank it or polish+give to the odd old man you'll never worry about getting them.

Slayer task[edit source]

A little clarification needed here. Although, on the table on this page, it does said that Duradel/Lapalok do assigned these monster for slayer task, neither Duradel nor Lapalok have Cave horror on the assigned monster list.

Is the assigned monster not updated, or the Karamjan Slayer masters never assigned it in the first place

A new drop found[edit source]

I've gotten an uncut sapphire and also an uncut emerald as drop (when I was not wearing a ring of Wealth) so it should be added

but I dont know how, so could someone else fo this?

The rare drop table can be accessed at any time, not just when you're wearing a ring of Wealth. Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 17:10, May 21, 2012 (UTC)

Fellstalk Seed[edit source]

It says that Fellstalk Seeds are dropped together with Morchella Mushroom Spores, but I just got a Fellstalk Seed on its own. RiverShock (talk) 11:47, February 11, 2013 (UTC)

2007 Scape. Cave horrors with and without 'Ring of Wealth'[edit source]

So i took it apon myself to get an acurate answer for the overasked question "Should i take 'Ring of Wealth' to Cave Horrors or not" my answer is NO! Do NOT take Ring of Wealth to Cave Horrors!! Where is my proof you might ask? I have no screen shots or any direct proof BUT- I killed 3000 (3k) Cave Horrors with Ring of Wealth and didnt recieve a single mask! I then proceeded to remove my Ring of Wealth and kill another 3000 (3k) Cave Horrors without it. My I managed to get 8 mask drops without Ring of Wealth.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 06:44, March 31, 2013.

Duh. The ROW did fuck all except access a limited drop table in '07, which only had shield left halves, gems, teeth halves, nature talismans/runes, and some other shit. It didn't work on any items outside of the table, valued or not. This is common knowledge. Only an idiot would buy one in the '07 server. It's even more amusing when people believe it affects things like clues and rune defenders (i.e. no value at all), that didn't come about until 2011 when they redefined what the ROW did.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 20:50, April 10, 2013.

That's nice. Not pertinent this this wiki; put that on the 2007Scape wiki instead. 7kyt1iT.gif --WINE OF GOOD HEALTH (Actually Stinko) 21:06, April 10, 2013 (UTC)
Good correlation with my 2752 kills from 2009 (865 kills with ring of wealt (0 drops) and 1887 kills withought row (6 drops)) I don't use row when I kill them in osrs as this seem's to be the trend before 2011. Jonaboy (talk) 19:50, July 25, 2013 (UTC)

CLUE SCROLLS:[edit source]

My 'Clue Scroll' drop rate was pretty consistant all the way through (i finished every clue scroll from the moment i got them) I found this my main source of income, even better than the masks! This may change as it is very early on in 2007 oldschool runescape. So due to the constant changing economy at this time, this may very well change.

Over 5 hours dry with ring of Wealth?[edit source]

Currently killing these as i type, but i've went over 4 trips and 4 hours dry without a single mask with a ring of Wealth on. Before that I had a trip wear i got 3 masks wearing a ring of dueling in ONE trip took around 1 hour or so. taking it back off  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 07:26, April 5, 2013.

Drop rate of masks is 1/756? where did this person get their info  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Wayward Soul (talk) on 10:28, April 7, 2013.

So, I saw that black masks are over 1m now. So I decided to go kill cave horrors till I got my own. I got 98 mage about 30 minutes into the trip. I just hit 1m exp until lvl 99. which means I've killed about 1000 cave horrors since getting lvl 98. Still no mask. I'm thinking the drop rate was changed recently, by recently I mean like since eoc was released. I don't believe they were this rare before. Ps. I didn't bring alchs or anything so all of my mage exp came from killing cave horrors  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 23:31, August 11, 2013.

black masks drop rate[edit source]

Stop changing drop rate of black masks to very rare. It definitely is not. I've been keeping a log of black mask drops, which is now 35212 kills, 92 blakcs masks were found, which makes the drop rate 1/383, which is rare, and not very rare.

thanks. 13:12, September 18, 2014 (UTC)

Hey your sample means nothing sorry. First off, statistics are never a guarantee. And yours are definitely off, because the confirmed drop rate is 1/512. MolMan 13:11, September 18, 2014 (UTC)

even if that was the case.

/goes to any gwd boss page, sees 1/550 droprate of godsword shars -> all rare

/hexcrest from jungle strykewyrms 1/518 -> rare

/streel dragons dragon platelegs/skirt 1/531 1/543 -> rare

yet black masks from cave horrors 1/512 -> very rare

Why do you want to make drop rares so inconsistent. Either make everything according to the norms set by the wiki, or let it have a slight transition like with every other drop near 1/500.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 13:32, September 18, 2014 (UTC).

Abit too lucky?[edit source]

Hi there,ive recieved like a black mask in just 50+kills which is puzzling due to the fact that its under very rare?Blair russ (talk) 12:11, December 22, 2014 (UTC)

That is just how randomness works. A single data point of 50 kills to get a black mask is not significant to conclude the rarity of the item. IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 12:24, December 22, 2014 (UTC)

Varying drop rate?[edit source]

Since the attack speed on these monsters tends to vary, is it possible that the drop rate of the black mask would vary as the attack speed does? This would explain a lot of anecdotes about the drop rate. 21:22, March 29, 2015 (UTC)

New drops[edit source]

Gotten some new drops. 13 noted big bones, 2 noted monkey bones and 2 noted poison ivy berries. Seems they got new drops along with the new model. 2605:B100:F045:603:0:24:5FBE:8001 00:54, March 14, 2018 (UTC)

Same, This weekend I will spend a few hours there to see the maximum/minimum of the various new drops and try to get them added to the droptable so we can get this page off of the "needs updating" list :) Completionist cape.png Angel of Law Talk Law rune.png 02:53, April 13, 2018 (UTC)
