Dagannoth: Misc



Up to date as of February 07, 2010

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

Dagannoth are sea monsters. Many are found near areas inhabited by the Fremennik, who call them dagger-mouths and hunt them for their skin, which is used to make armour. There are many types of Dagannoth, the most powerful being the three Dagannoth Kings. Dagannoth are assigned by Chaeldar, Sumona, Duradel/Lapalok and Kuradal as Slayer tasks. Balmung, released with the quest Blood Runs Deep hits them very hard, similar to the effect of using Keris on Kalphites or Scabarites.

There are several types of Dagannoth, which vary by level, location and occasionally name. For information on a specific type of dagannoth, see its article.

  • In the FunOrb game Armies of Gielinor, one may summon a Dagannoth. Jagex has used the image of the Spirit dagannoth.
  • Although the plural of Dagannoth is commonly known as Dagannoths, when given as an assignment, Slayer masters refer to them as "Dagannoth" as a plural form.
  • Dagannoths may be based on the Deep Ones from H.P. Lovecraft's The Shadow Over Innsmouth. In the aforementioned story, they worshipped the elder beings Father Dagon and Mother Hydra.
  • Dagannoths may also be based on the Aliens from the Alien movie series, as several references are made to them throughout the game.
  • While the idea for the creatures characteristics may derive from the above mentioned, the name itself seems as if it may come from one of the first computer role-playing games, Dungeons of Daggorath, produced by DynaMicro in 1982.
