Gargoyles are a monster unlocked at level 75 slayer in Oldschool Runescape. They can be killed both on and off-task, but require a rock hammer, rock thrownhammer or granite hammer to kill them when below 9 hitpoints. They are a relatively profitable slayer monster, known for their alchable droptable, so it is highly advised to bring high level alchemy runes when completing this task.

Additionally, those who have received a Gargoyle slayer task may wish to take on a more challenging opponent such as the Grotesque Guardians. Also known as the Gargoyle boss, they can only be fought on a Gargoyle slayer task. You can read our Grotesque Guardian guide here.

The Gargoyles in osrs can be found exclusively at the Slayer Tower. They can be fought in the basement for those on-task only. Players wishing to kill them off-task will need to go to the top floor of the slayer tower to face them. The fastest methods of travelling to the slayer tower are:

  • Slayer ring teleport to entrance.
  • Fairy ring code C-K-S to west of Canifis then run north.
  • Kharyrll teleport then run north-west.
  • Ectophial teleport to Port Phasmatys and run west until you reach the tower.

Gargoyle FAQs

Below is some of the most frequently asked questions by players looking for a strategy to kill Gargoyles for the first time.

What are gargoyles weaknesses?

Gargoyles are weak to crush weapons. This is why the Inquisitor’s Mace is used in the max gear setup. Weapons such as the Abyssal Bludgeon are strong alternative crush weapons.

Is there a way to auto smash gargoyles?

Yes, you can unlock the “Gargoyle Smasher” perk for 120 slayer points from any slayer master. However, you are still required to have a rock hammer or equivalent in your inventory. But, its the perfect gargoyle strategy as it allows you to be more AFK during the task.

Are gargoyles good exp Osrs?

Gargoyle tasks provide moderate levels of slayer experience. They are mostly known for their afkability and profit. However, players can still expect around 25k slayer experience per hour here. To level faster, players can buy OSRS gold.
