Desert Lizard: Misc

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

Desert Lizards (Lacertilia Giganteus) are Slayer monsters that require level 22 Slayer to kill. Ice coolers are required to kill them.



  • Kharidian Desert north of Nardah. The fairy ring code D-L-Q is the best way to reach them, (there are some just North West of the ring)
  • Head to Nardah's bank, and go directly South-West until you reach a building, then go west, there will be four Desert Lizards in a small group.

Slayer Strategy

Since you get slayer experience only for the monsters killed during your assignment, the level 42 Lizards are the best to kill. There are two that spawn due north-east of the fairy ring, almost at the edge of the map. They are each near a cactus. You can kill first lizard, slash cactus with knife, move to second, kill lizard, slash cactus, repeat as needed. Also they drop big bones, so you get more experience in slayer, combat, and prayer than with the smaller lizards.

Strengths and weaknesses

You must use ice coolers on them when they reach 1-2 Hitpoints in order to kill them. If an ice cooler is accidentally used when the desert lizard has more than 2 hitpoints, it will still be used up but have no effect. Players would be wise to bring a few extra because of this. You will also need waterskins (and knife for cutting cactus) or an Enchanted water tiara as these are found in the desert. Bring plenty of waterskins.

A Desert lizard bone, which differs from the usual bones dropped by Desert lizards, are rare drops used in the Rag and Bone Man quest. This bone cannot be buried.
