‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Ripper dinosaurs ripperdinosaur - 114 slayer

⬥ Dinosaurs are only assigned by Laniakea laniakea and CANNOT be placed in the player owned dungeon.

⬥ All of them attack with melee

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• This makes the best style to use against them magic, followed by melee

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• range should not be used for any dinosaur tasks.

Desirable Drops

All dinosaurs have the same drop rates for uniques and Totem pieces. It is thus recommended to kill Venomous Dinosaurs venomousdinosaur if your slayer level is high enough as they have the highest KPH.

Venomous Dinosaurs

Venomous dinosaurs are the go-to for dinosaur tasks as they have the highest kills per hour of any dinosaur.

Stats

combat XP per kill : 1378 + 454.7 Constitution

slayer XP per kill : 1332

⬥ Optimal kills per hour: 480

⬥ Optimal slayer XP per hour : ~640k

Location and How to Get There

Venomous Dinosaurs are located on the northwestern part of Anachronia. They can be accessed by 3 methods, arranged fastest to slowest:

[1] Anachronia Teleport to a Totem of the Abyss placed on the north totem pedestal (red path)

[2] Lodestone teleport to Anachronia (keyboard shortcut "Alt + D"), run to the Orthen teleportation device, teleport to Outpost (keyboard shortcut "O"), and run west (blue path)

[3] Lodestone teleport to Anachronia, and run north (yellow path)

Where to Stand

Place the cannon cannon on the yellow square and stand on the green square shown in the image below. This effectively aggros 5 dinosaurs. This works for all three methods.

Method: Active and AFK Melee

To prevent taking too much damage, enhdev4 is helpful, as you will be praying DeflectMelee. If using the Corbicula Rex corbicula perk from the Ranch out of Time, excess adrenaline can be used in the form of the zgs spec or dragonhalberd eofspec if actively slaying, rotating between these greatly increases the damage dealt. This method provides ~450 KPH if done semi-actively.

Presets and Relics

Preset Suggestions

Action Bar

Note: It is assumed certain abilities such as bd, eofspec and spec are accessible on other action bars, or ability books, for manual use if actively slaying. The player may also prefer to manually cast devo if needed.

Method: AFK Magic

Thanks to the Venomous Dinosaurs' higher affinity to Magic (and susceptibility to inquisitorstaff) and damage reduction provided by animatedead and Cryptbloom Armour cryptbloombody , magic can achieve a similar or slightly higher KPH than melee at ~480 KPH, while being both very safe and AFK.

Presets and Relics

Preset Suggestions

Note: Prism of Restoration prismofrestoration should be cast at least every 5min to keep reaverpouch alive.

Note: This preset assumes the player has their slayerhelm in the Anachronia Stand.

Action Bar

Note: if magmatempest and/or gchain are not owned, simply ignore them and move the remaining abilities closer to the left. gsunshine is by no means a requirement, but can slightly improve KPH.

Method: AFK Necromancy

Thanks to Necromancies sustain with conjureghost and bloodsiphon, as well as its strong aoe damage potential with soulstrike and spectralscythe, it can effectively AFK Venomous Dinosaurs. Around 450-470kph can be achieved on task with this method while being safe and AFK with low input costs.

⬥ Pray DeflectMelee and sorrow/ruination

⬥ Upkeep elderovl, aggressionpotion, superprayerrenewal and weppoison at all times.

⬥ Use cannon to help aggroing the dinosaurs.
