Ancient Wyvern icon

Ancient Wyverns are Slayer monsters that require a Slayer level of 82 in order to be harmed. They reside in the Wyvern Cave on Fossil Island and are the strongest species of Wyvern in Old School RuneScape. Like other Wyverns, they require an elemental, mind, dragonfire or ancient wyvern shield to be equipped in order to be slain.

In addition to being harder to fight, Ancient Wyverns share the ability with Taloned Wyverns to use an unblockable Ranged attack that resembles a lighter colored Water Blast. This attack ignores Protection prayers and hits around 10, though they can also miss. They also appear to use all Melee attack types. When fighting them, the highest defensive armour the player can access is best suited to use against them.

  • They appear to use all attack styles when using melee, depending on the animation they use: slashing when they use their talons, stabbing when they jab with their tail and crushing when they bite the target.
  • Upon release, the wyvern's Defence level was 220. This was reduced to 150 in an update on 18 January 2018. This also changed its combat level from 227 to 210.
  • Originally, ancient wyverns had a significantly worse drop table. After player feedback, it was improved in an update the next day.
