A Unicow is a hybrid of a Cow and a Unicorn. Players can create unicows in Creature Creation, in the basement dungeon of the Tower of Life building once they complete the Tower of Life quest.

A unicow is created by a player using a Cowhide and a Unicorn horn on the unicow altar of life in the dungeon and then activating the altar. The Homunculus in the dungeon then creates the monster, which appears near the altar and will attack the player.


How to Make Money Killing Unicows

Players can sell the horns they get from killing unicows to make money. Approximately 40 Attack, Strength, and Defence are needed to do this. One approach is to walk into the basement with 13 cowhide and 1 unicorn horn. Go to the altar for the unicow, use 1 cowhide and 1 horn on it, and activate it. After killing the unicow, collect the horns (consider collecting every 2 unicows for speed). Repeat until inventory is full. A relatively fast way to bank is to run back to the fairy ring next to the tower and bank in Zanaris, though an Ardougne teleport (with teletabs to save space) could also be used.

If the player has completed the easy tasks of the Ardougne Achievement Diary, The Ardougne cloak can be a fast way of banking, since it teleports the player to the monastery near the Tower of Life.

  • The unicow seems to be the monster most made in Creature Creation, as its unicorn horn drops are prized. These horns are used in Herblore and Summoning and can be expensive to purchase or difficult to obtain by other means. Although a Unicorn always drops a unicorn horn, unicorns only appear in small numbers in safe areas like outside Varrock. Many can be found in the Wilderness, but Revenants are a threat there.
  • See Creature Creation for tips on bringing cowhides and banking the unicorn horns.
  • If a player attempts to attack a unicow created by someone else, the player receives the message "someone else is fighting that", regardless of whether the other player is actually in combat.
  • Killing a Unicow is one of the Easy tasks required for the Ardougne Achievement Diary.
