Fossil Island wyverns icon.png

Taloned Wyverns are Slayer monsters that require a Slayer level of 66 in order to be harmed. They reside in the Wyvern Cave on Fossil Island. Like other Wyverns, they require an elemental, mind, dragonfire or ancient wyvern shield to be equipped in order to be slain.

In addition to Melee and icy breath, Taloned Wyverns also seem to use a Ranged attack that resembles a lighter coloured Water Blast. This attack ignores Protection prayers and hits around 10. Fighting within Melee range is advised as they will be made less likely to use this.
