WildyWyrm

This article is about in-game WildyWyrms. For how they appeared in 2011, see WildyWyrm (historical).

The WildyWyrm is a boss variant of regular lava strykewyrms. They have a rare chance to spawn next to their lesser counterparts, and will then start roaming throughout the Wilderness in mound form, although they are limited to a somewhat confined area - they are generally found in relative proximity with their lesser counterparts. They will rarely travel away from the Lava Maze, although they are restricted from travelling any further than the bandit camp to the south, and the herb patch to the east.

If it spawns, a world announcement is made: Game announcement.png News: The WildyWyrm has just spawned in the wilderness! The WildyWyrm can also be summoned and controlled by Jagex Moderators, and they are capable of choosing their attack style and increasing their attack and defence levels. They can additionally heal the WildyWyrms in order to prolong the fight and create a greater challenge for the players involved, although such occurrences are extremely rare.

Like all strykewyrms, the WildyWyrm appears in mound form, but is labeled as a "large" mound. Unlike the other strykewyrm mounds, interacting with the WildyWyrm's mound will cause a prompt to appear, asking the player if they are ready to fight. If the player accepts the prompt, then the WildyWyrm will burst out of the mound and begin combat.

Like their lesser cousins, WildyWyrms use all three forms of combat. However, their ranged attacks shatter on all players within range of the projectile when it lands, while the magic attack bounces to a nearby player if they are in range. They exclusively use their lesser cousins' burrow attack, even if the player is not within range to be dragged. Unlike other strykewyrms who will burrow back to the ground and despawn if it cannot see the player or they run too far from it, WildyWyrms are continually hostile and will not despawn, meaning the only way to remove one from an undesired area is by killing it, although a game update will also remove it if it is not killed by then.

With completion of the easy Wilderness Tasks, the player will be awarded a Wilderness sword 1, which (alongside its higher variants) can be used to track the WildyWyrm. If a WildyWyrm is present in the Wilderness, the sword can precisely track down the WildyWyrm (compared to the hellfire bow, which only lists a general location); however, unless it has been provoked, then the sword will continually update the WildyWyrm's location.

Ironmen are unable to harm the WildyWyrm, but may kill it instantly with a deathtouched dart. The loot obtained will be 10 noted searing ashes and 5 noted fury sharks. A main drop table loot will not be rolled.

As WildyWyrms can be found anywhere in the areas they can reach, caution is highly advised as they are almost always found above level 30 Wilderness, and some of these locations also double as multi-way combat areas. They are best tackled in a group, as killing one alone can be very tedious and time consuming due to their extremely damaging magic attacks, high defence, low affinity value and the ability to quickly restore drained stats.

Drops[edit | edit source]

Drops are obtained as long as the person contributed towards its death. The WildyWyrm has 8 times the chance of dropping a unique attachment than killing a lava strykewyrm on a slayer task, but it is limited to only one drop per kill regardless of how many people damaged it when it died.[1]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • If players contributed to killing the WildyWyrm, a message will appear stating that "As you contributed to the wyrm's death, it leaves fury sharks and searing ashes behind."
    • If players did a large amount of damage, then the message is changed to "As you contributed heavily to the wyrm's death, it leaves fury sharks and searing ashes behind."
  • Patch Notes on 2 March 2015, 30 March 2015 and 6 February 2017 greatly increased the chance of a WildyWyrm appearing.
    • Due to player feedback about how common it began to spawn (and caused searing ashes to plummet because of it), the chances of a WildyWyrm appearing were lowered with the Patch Notes of 20 February 2017.
  • The WildyWyrm's level appears as both 92 (when right clicking) and 1337 (in the tool tip).
  • Killing one displays the following on the Adventurer's Log: I killed a WildyWyrm. I killed a WildyWyrm in the Wilderness.
  • The WildyWyrm's level is 1337, this is most likely a joke from the developers making fun of certain PvP players using "leet speak" often, as 1337 is one of the most commonly known words/numbers from that particular speech type.
  • There is a glitch where the WildyWyrm will not attack players despite being capable of doing so with its attacks. This is due to its wander range, as monsters attacked outside of their wander range will attempt to retreat to lure the aggressor(s) in, which it is incapable of doing, even though.
  • They originally appeared as part of a small holiday event in 2011, possessing the same mechanics. Although, lava strykewyrms did not appear, and they were instead found in one of three locations around the Wilderness, which were marked by some burnt trees (some of which still remain in-game). They returned alongside lava strykewyrms in 2015.
