Harpie Bug Swarms are mid-level slayer monsters that require a Slayer level of 33 to kill. A lit bug lantern, which requires a Firemaking level of 33 to light, is required to kill these monsters (an unlit lantern will not work). Harpie Bug Swarms should be an easy task for well-equipped mid-level players. Harpie Bug Swarms are very accurate, and will often hit for up to 6 hitpoints; thus, it is advisable to bring food appropriate for the player's level. Many may find lobsters suitable for the task. Defence levels beginning roughly in the late 40s or early 50s or higher will prove helpful in defending against this enemy.

It is recommended to bring nature runes while slaying this monster since it has many drops that can be alchemised to free up inventory spaces, and fire runes are frequently dropped from this monster.

There is a safespot behind a bush in between two trees on the south side of the area.

LocationsEdit

  • Northern shore of the Karamja mainland, just east of the dungeon.
  • The closest fairy ring is d•k•p. Although you will need to run south and use the shortcut to cross the river. Fairy ring c•k•r can also be used, though it's further to the south. Taking the former requires you to run past the Shaikahan and aggressive jogres before you can melee the swarms.
  • You can also use a ring of dueling and take the Al Kharid gnome glider to the crashed Karamja one which is slightly slower than the fairy rings.
