Tortoise shells are dropped by Tortoises and Warped tortoises. Both monsters can drop up to three shells at a time per kill. They can be sold to Barlak in Dorgesh-Kaan for 600 coins but sell for much higher on the GE. It is also used to make a War tortoise pouch for Summoning thus making it highly valuable. This familiar is a common familiar for high levelled players to use, due to its ability to store 18 items and the fact that it only requires 67 summoning.

Sometimes Tortoises and Warped tortoises can also drop Perfect shells, a rarer counter part. It cannot be used to make a War tortoise pouch, and like the regular version of the shells, a player may receive up to 3 of these shells. You can use it to make crafting experience in Dorgesh-Kaan. A Ring of Wealth is not recommended to be worn while fighting the tortoises as tortoise shells are a fairly common drop.


  • The tortoise shell was released a while before the release of summoning and it had no use at that time.
