Fossil Island Wyvern FAQs
Below is some of the most frequently asked questions by players looking to kill Fossil Island Wyverns for the first time.
Which Fossil Island wyvern is best?
All three of the lower-tier Wyverns (spitting, talon and long-tailed) have identical combat stats and defence. They can therefore, be killed in identical fashion. Additionally, the three share an identical drop-table, meaning there is no loss or gain dependant on the type you choose to kill. The Ancient Wyvern, on the other hand, possesses a more lucrative drop-table, but is far harder and slower to kill. If players want an easier way to farm they can buy OSRS gold.
Does Dragon Hunter Lance work on Fossil Island wyverns?
Yes, both the Dragon Hunter Lance and Crossbow work on Fossil Island Wyverns. They are the best in slot weapons when facing these monsters.
Are Fossil Island wyverns task only?
No, Fossil Island wyverns can be killed off-task. However, there is a task-only cave that players can kill Fossil Island wyverns in when on a slayer task.
