Level 12 Level 27

Minotaur are found on level one of the Stronghold of Security. They drop the right skull half, one of four parts of the Skull sceptre. These monsters are great for training due to their low defence, but have high attack damage making it insufficient for un-equipped players. They can be found at level 12 with 10 hitpoints, and at level 27 at 22 hitpoints.

It is recommended to have a reasonably high Defence level (15+) when fighting minotaurs with melee.

Minotaurs are a common method of Ranged training as they can be safespotted and commonly drop iron arrows.
