Warped tortoises can be found in the Poison Waste Slayer Dungeon during The Path of Glouphrie and can be fought there during and after the quest. The dungeon may be reached by using spirit trees (fastest). Using fairy ring BKP (partial completion of A Fairy Tale II - Cure a Queen required) or by walking from Castle Wars will take you to an area with a grapple crossing requiring any crossbow and a mithril grapple to cross the river to the dungeon. Additionally, players who have completed the Tirannwn Set Tasks - Medium can use the Tirannwn quiver 2 teleport to the Poison Waste Slayer Dungeon to arrive within the first room of the dungeon.

Players cannot receive Slayer assignments for warped tortoises unless they have completed the quest. They are commonly killed for the frequent drop rate of tortoise shells, used for creating a war tortoise pouch. They are also killed for their frequent drop of medium rune salvage. Their horrific appearance is a result of tampering with the Anima Mundi during experiments conducted by Glouphrie in Arposandra. The experiments have caused the tortoises to grow an additional pair of legs, as well as a group of purple tentacles protruding from their shell.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

The last Warped tortoise I killed I found a crossbow with bolts took them down effectively.

Warped tortoises are creatures tainted by magical waste. They are vulnerable to an elven chime.

Chaeldar

Warped tortoises are completely immune to any attack, unless players have a crystal chime in their inventory or on their tool belt. They mainly attack with magic, which can deal moderate damage. They are weak against ranged, particularly crossbows. A dragon crossbow or better is sufficient.

There are relatively few areas where these foes may be killed without any interference from nearby level 82 warped terrorbirds, which are aggressive and attack with ranged and melee. One is at the entrance, where there are two quick tortoise spawns. A second is at the end of dungeon where there is a room with two warped tortoises alone which is not generally used by bots. This could prove useful for those on a Slayer task, particularly if players have 96 Summoning for a Pack yak.

Note: Warped tortoises are unaffected by aggression potions. They must still be clicked to cleanse and attack.

Drops[edit | edit source]

The average Warped tortoise kill is worth 196.01 coins.

Universal drops[edit | edit source]

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

Achievement[edit | edit source]

  • La Petite Mort (RuneScore.png 0) – Obtained a collection of unique drops from Slayer monsters located within Kandarin.

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!
* patch 4 November 2019 (Update):
  • ninja 25 April 2016 (Update):
    • Improved respawn rates for Warped tortoises.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • At one time it was possible to heal using Guthan's set even when the tortoises were not made vulnerable by the crystal chimes. This was because at one point Guthan's set counted potential damage inflicted on foes even when actual damage was not possible due to prayer or other invulnerability. An update on 9 June 2009 fixed this bug.
  • Warped tortoises are the highest levelled monsters to drop cabbages.
  • If you have a slayer Daily Challenge and you attack a tortoise without a chime, you won't be able to do any damage. But if someone else subsequently kills the tortoise, it will still count towards your Daily Challenge.
  • There seems to be a glitch where warped tortoises are immune to stuns; if stunned with Impact they will be unaffected, while if Asphyxiate is used the first hit will not stun while the remaining hits will.
  • As of 1 February 2018, the highest kill count for these monsters was 60,811 kills.[1]
    • This had not increased by 6 May 2018.[2]
