Mutant Tarn

The Mutant Tarn is a powerful and deadly boss that drops Dragon Claws and Twisted Bows. It can use a wide variety of damaging attacks, and it has a large store of hitpoints and excellent defense. For players using Protection from Magic, it's not as dangerous as many other bosses; however, it can still kill unwary players. Solo kiling Mutant may be difficult so it is advised to Duo. However, you may be able to solo it depending on gear used. The Mutant Tarn has the following attacks:

  • A single-target melee attack that does up to 37 damage
  • A multi-target magic attack that does up to 79 damage
  • An area-of-effect burn attack that covers the floor with pockets of fire. Anyone standing in a square where fire spawns will take damage
  • A poison attack that starts at 8 damage

Overall, you should protect from mage

Players who are soloing Tarn will most likely need a significant amount of food in order to get the kill. Currently, tarn is not killed as often due to the difficulty.

The only main attack style that should be used is melee or mage, and having maxed or near-maxed gear is highly recommended. Only that setup will do sufficient damage to give you a good chance of getting the kill.

Gear and inventory setup

To have a reasonable chance of getting kills, you must be in maxed or near-maxed gear. Here is a few set-ups that can be used to kill Tarn.

Inventory Setup

Inventory setup isn't particularly important at Tarn, because it is easily possible to bank after every kill. Any inventory setup that includes the following 5 items will be sufficient:

  • Super Combat Potion
  • Super Restores
  • Anglerfish, Sharks or similar food
  • Special Attack weapon
  • Antifire Potion

Here is a sample inventory setup:


Getting There

Step 1: Teleport to "Mutant Tarn" under the "Bosses" teleport option


Step 2: Kill Hobgoblins, Hellhounds or Troll spectator until you reach the required kill count to enter.

  • Non-Donor: 20 Kill count required
  • Donor: 5 Kill count required


Step 3: Enter the western (Purple) portal to access Tarn.

You should turn on your protection prayers before entering this portal, in case Tarn has already spawned.

Step 4: If Tarn has not spawned, stand in the indicated spot to attack him the instant that he does spawn.


Banking between kills

Step 1: When Tarn dies, pick up the drop and teleport to Edgeville (Home). Here you can restock again.


Step 2: Restock your inventory in the bank

Step 3: Click the box of health to restore prayer and HP.

Step 3: Teleport back to Tarn, get KC, re-enter the portal, and get ready to kill him again

Tips and tricks

Tarn uses a burn attack that covers the floor with pockets of fire. Anyone standing in a square where fire spawns will take damage, So when the fire hits the floor run to a non effected area.


As you can see from the image I am currently on the flame, I must step on a part of the floor without a flame tile.


The most important drop from the Mutant Tarn are the Zogre Bones that it drops every kill as these offer a decent amount of prayer experience when offered on an altar, because of this they are very valuable to players. Luckily, the bones are not the only great reward from the Mutant Tarn, as there are plenty of unique drops that will boost the amount of money you make killing this boss even more. These includes the Twisted Bow and Dragon Claws.
