Cave kraken are slayer monsters that can only be attacked if players have them as a slayer assignment. To be assigned cave krakens, players require level 87 Slayer and 50 Magic.

Located at the Stronghold Slayer Cave, these monsters, along with their boss variant, are the only monsters to drop the Kraken tentacle and the Trident of the seas.

In order to attack a cave kraken, a player must disturb a whirlpool, causing the cave kraken to surface.

From any Slayer master:

Cave Krakens are found in subterranean lakes beneath the Gnome Stronghold. They're very hard to deal damage with ranged or melee attacks, so try Magic.

This suggests that Ranged or Melee attacks are heavily reduced. Melee cannot be used as they move around on a lake and cannot be attacked at close range. This might also suggest that using a Dwarf multicannon will have their attacks reduced as it is a ranged-based attack.

  • Even though Tridents of the seas are uncommon[1], Cave kraken can only be attacked while on a Slayer task, therefore the availability of their drops are still considered to be rare.
  • Cave Krakens are recoloured, resized Sea Troll Queens.
  • Cave Krakens and their boss variant are similar to RuneScape 3's Strykewyrms, which can only be attacked while on a Slayer task and must be disturbed to fight.
