A desert wyrm's speaking animation.

The Desert wyrm is a level 18 Summoning familiar. It is summoned using a Desert wyrm pouch, which gives you 0.4 Summoning experience. The desert wyrm can be used for the following things:

  • Combat: it has a combat level of 31 and can hit up to 4 damage. Additionally, its Electric Lash scroll can hit a max of 5 damage.
  • Mining: it provides an invisible mining boost of 1 point. This ability makes the Desert wyrm fairly popular among low levelled miners.
  • Burrow: it will tunnel underground and drop an ore up to Iron on the ground. This can only be used near a Mining rock. This can prove useful for higher level miners when mining iron at a spot where only two rocks surround them, as they can mine the two rocks very quickly, then right click the wyrm and select burrow before the next rock respawns. It should be noted that there must also be a nearby iron rock which the player doesn't mine. Otherwise burrow will not work, or the wyrm may bring up tin or copper from other rocks. A great place to do this is at the iron rocks near the mini-obelisk in the Port Khazard mine, depositing ores in the deposit box to the east. A player can gather from 700 to 800 iron ores using one desert wyrm pouch.


Desert wyrm pouch

Desert Wyrm pouch is made by using a Summoning pouch on a Summoning obelisk with 45 spirit shards, a green charm and a bucket of sand in the inventory. Making the pouch earns 31.2 experience points. Using the pouch to summon a Desert wyrm gains 0.4 experience points, and costs 1 Summoning points. If players exchange their Desert Wyrm pouches at Bogrog, they will receive 32 spirit shards per pouch.

One of these pouches is required to progress through the Spirit of Summer quest. The player must summon the familiar and add it to the second disc.

Electric lash scroll

Electric Lash scroll enables the use of the electric lash special move for a Desert wyrm. Using the pouch on a Summoning obelisk creates 10 scrolls.


Electric lash

Electric lash is the special move for Desert wyrms, which attacks the player's opponent inflicting up to 5 hp damage instead of 4 hp damage. Activating this move will cost the player 6 special move points.
