Level 28 Level 35 Level 41

Flesh Crawlers are medium level monsters found in the second level of the Stronghold of Security. Flesh crawlers drop herbs often, and are frequently killed for their uncommon Ranarr drops.

It is recommended that players bring good food unless they have a Defence level of at least 40. They are good for combat training of any kind at a medium-high level (35 - 85 combat). It's beneficial to have around 40 in whichever combat skills are being used. Focused players can make upwards of 150,000 coins per hour while receiving 20,000 — 40,000 experience per hour. Good drops to pick up are any noted iron ores as well as Nature runes and Ranarrs.



Flesh crawlers are aggressive to any level players. Range is a good strategy as there are safe spots in the rooms. It is possible to hide behind nonaggressive giant rats in one room and range the flesh crawlers, protected from their rapid, although weak, attacks. They attack with the speed of darts set to rapid. Because these attacks max at 1 damage, the use of a Regen bracelet can help to offset much of the damage taken, especially if the player has a strong defence.

For minimal user-input (also known as afk or semi-afk training), turn on auto retaliate and let the Flesh Crawlers come to you. When they lose their aggressiveness, simply move to another room, then come back.

To reduce banking trips needed, deposit all non-stackable drops when you are teleported to random events, and drop all herbs aside from Ranarr, as Ranarrs are often more valuable than even their highest levelled herbs such as dwarf weed.
