Salarin the twisted is a monster. He is the highest leveled chaos druid and can only be found in a room within the Yanille agility dungeon. A player who attempts to cast a spell or engages in combat with Salarin will have their attack and strength stats reduced to zero. It is possible to attack a nearby Chaos Druid and then cast spells at Salarin, avoiding both his stat lowering curse and direct damage from him. Salarin has a weakness for strike spells and his curse will never reduce a players magic, defence, or ranged skill level. This makes magic the only effective way of killing him. However, it is possible to kill Salarin by using the rapid heal prayer and waiting for combat stats to recover, but this method is not practical and takes much longer than casting any strike spell on him. Strike spells cast on Salarin the Twisted do not grant Magic experience.
Players kill him mainly for the sinister key which he drops. To reach Salarin in the Yanille agility dungeon, players must have 67+ Agility.
Maximum strike spell damage against Salarin:[edit | edit source]
- Wind strike: 9+1 (One cast shows two hits in succession)
- Fire strike: 12+4 (One cast shows two hits in succession)
In order to enter the room containing Salarin, a player must have the following stats:
Route 1 (82+ thieving, 1 lockpick, 67+ agility)
This is the fastest and safest route to reaching Salarin because it bypasses most of the chaos druid warriors and potentially poisonous spiders.
Start by walking to the entrance of the Yanille agility dungeon inside the city itself (the room just south and slightly west of the bank) and climb down the staircase. Pick the lock on the door which requires a thieving level of 82. Walk east past the chaos druids and chaos druid warriors and follow this corridor to the staircase. Climb down the stairs which will lead to this room. Climb down the pile of rubble with level 67 agility. Salarin the Twisted can be found in the north part of this room.
Route 2 (67+ agility)
Walk to the entrance of Yanille's agility dungeon found just north of Yanille. Balance over the ledge and walk past the chaos druid warriors. On the south wall of this room, swing on the swing-set and then walk east and follow the corridor past chaos druids and a chaos druid warrior to the staircase. Climb down the stairs which will lead to this room. Climb down the pile of rubble and Salarin the Twisted is found in the north part of this room.
These drop rates are estimated based on a mix of drop logs, videos, and at times, comparison to later code. See the talk page for more details.
It's estimated that 34/128 of the time, Salarin drops 1 herb, and 5/128 of the time, drops 1 herb and rolls again on the entire Salarin table.
There is a chance of rolling the rare drop table.
- Getting to Salarin the Twisted requires an agility level of 67.
- The "spellok" sound does not play when casting Strike spells against Salarin.
