Raptor's Challenge | Wyverns

 

Every week throughout November, we'll be releasing a new high-level monster – fresh from RuneLabs. Each one's a fitting challenge for the most masterful of slayers among you and has some truly epic loot to claim.

This week's monsters are wyverns: the still-living forebears of the Asgarnian Ice Dungeon's skeletal monstrosities. Risk the cold, resist their potent poison, and claim the level 85 wyvern crossbow – which has a damage-over-time passive effect and accompanying bolts.

In his ongoing quest to take down Gielinor's biggest game, the Raptor has set himself up south of Port Sarim as a slayer master for the month of November. Slayers of all levels can take a daily, level-appropriate assignment which grants double Slayer XP. Impress him over the course of the month for a Raptor-themed cosmetic armour set.

Read on for further details, or play now!

 

Where to Find Wyverns

Head deeper into the Asgarnian Ice Dungeon, past the skeletal wyverns

Requirements

You must be a RuneScape member

96 Slayer is required to damage the wyverns

100 Combat is required to be assigned wyverns by a slayer master

Other Information

Very high combat stats and your best gear are strongly recommended

Wyrmfire potions will be a big help


Wyverns are the first of four devilish new beasts that we're unleashing from RuneLabs this month – thanks to Anarchy Time for the awesome concept.

Head far into the frosty depths of the Asgarnian Ice Dungeon and you'll encounter these primal reptiles. Their massive poison damage can be mitigated the chillier you get…but cold comes with its own risks. 

You're on your own from here – it's down to you to work out the optimal wyvern-whacking technique, and to claim the wyvern crossbow from their corpses.

This wicked level 85 two-hander has an awesome passive DoT effect, so it can really crank out the damage. Look out for the matching bolts, too, to make the most of the mighty weapon.

Wyverns can be assigned by Kuradal, Morvran and – during November – the Raptor. Note that once the month is up, the wyverns will remain – they're a permanent fixture.

Finally, while you're on a wyvern assignment, watch out for the first part of a key to open Raptor's chest. The remaining parts are to come when the other monsters are released.

 

How to Start Raptor's Challenge

Speak to Raptor south of Port Sarim

Requirements

You must be a RuneScape member

Other Information

Ironman players can take part

Some specific limitations, listed below


Throughout November, Raptor will give you one slayer assignment per day.

The enemies assigned by Raptor are the same as those assigned by other masters, and will be appropriate to your level. They also award double Slayer XP

Raptor's assignments have a number of differences, as compared to regular ones:

  • Social Slayer does not work when requesting an assignment from Raptor.

  • Assignment of enemies cannot be preferred, blocked or guaranteed using items or slayer point rewards.

  • Slayer helmet damage and accuracy effects do work, but the helmets have no interaction with the Raptor gem.

  • Slayer Tower contracts are prioritised over Raptor's assignments for the same creature – pausing the Raptor version - and Raptor's assignments cannot make you eligible for special contracts.

  • Kills on a Raptor assignment do not count towards Slayer daily challenges, but do towards combat ones.

  • Raptor's assignments do not give a guaranteed elite mob spawn, but can spawn elites through random generation. Other slayer masters' wyvern assignments do guarantee an elite spawn, as normal.

  • You can have an assignment for Raptor and for a regular Slayer master at the same time, although these will not be for the same enemy. If there are no alternatives, the regular assignment will be prioritised and your Raptor assignment paused.

Once you have completed 15 Raptor assignments, you'll unlock a menacing set of Raptor-themed armour. This'll have a bloodthirsty twist – an improved appearance unlocked by slaughtering the new high-level monsters. Details on this – and more rewards – to come later in the month!

 

Enjoy!


Enjoy your wyvern wrangling this week, and start showing the Raptor what you're made of. Look out for a new monstrosity to tackle every week of November.

"Players who own all Liberation of Mazcab abilities and use a codex will now be refunded with teci."

 

Does this mean if you have all the abilities, you can buy another codex off the G.E. and use it for teci, effectively making it buyable? It seems like a loophole unless I'm misunderstanding something.

“Do you have any regrets?”

“I don’t. It seems surprising, I know, but I wouldn’t change a thing. This is how it was meant to be.”

“Huh, you never really notice how lovely the day is until you realize you’ll never see it again.”

“Mmmhmm.”

The updates to TT slider puzzles and the EW3 puzzle are very welcome; excellent Ninja fixes.

Someone hit the cap of 60k QBD kills, and it flipped around and said he had 0 kills. Presumably this is why that got added.

Obtained quest cape and base 92 before obtaining any 99s! Currently finishing out my 99s with the (long-distant) goal of comp cape.

Aynone found out how to survive more then 10ish kills at Wyverns? If so, sharing of tactics would be much appreciated. :)


You're accusing me of bigotry, how ironic. It's a nice attempt at argument, but your responses are facile and asinine, if not diatribe. Who's arrogant now?

Haven't tried yet, but looks like a solid plan :)

 

The ONLY reason for me to consider fighting these again is for the key piece(s) that make up Raptor's key...

Given the effect it's probably better for something like GWD.

This whole key thing seems a bit derpy from what I understand of it:

 

1) Raptor tasks are only around for November

2) Key parts are only dropped by the new elite mobs.

3) Key parts are only dropped on Raptor tasks.

 

Ergo your chance to actually open the chest is locked behind not one but two walls on RNG.

RNG wall one of actually getting the right task.

RNG wall two of actually getting the drop whilst on that task.

 

Unless they do the weighting right on the task assignment and drop rates it seems like it will be a bit bs

Only 29 chances at Wyvern task

22 chances at week 2 mob

15 at week 3 mob

8 at week 4 mob

Assuming you get on between midnight and update on Monday 30th that is.

They said the chest is staying past november, so I think the key parts are available on regular slayer tasks as well

Key parts are not dropped by raptor tasks

 

The keys and rewards will stay in the game, it is only the cosmetic armor that is limited in that you need to do 15/30 raptor tasks this month.

 

 

 

Crossbow is only useful for things you will remain in combat for more than a minute with. So really, outside of raids or vorago, not all that useful. Things that have a higher def, t90s would be better than this due to accuracy.

 

Still, it fills the gap between 1m royal bow and 200m nox/ascensions and loldarts
