|An ice troll youngling.|
Ice troll runts are the lowest levels of Ice trolls found on Jatizso and Neitiznot. Despite their level they aren't something to be trifled with. They often hit powerful attacks and have the ability to hit through armour (similar to Verac the Defiled, except they cannot hit through Prayer). Yak-hide armour, however, reduces the troll's maximum hit as thus is recommended over armour with higher defensive bonuses. It is advised to use the Protect from Melee prayer whenever engaging more than one at a time. Ice troll runts are often found near Ice troll females. They can be found without the females nearby, but they will be spread farther out.
Ice troll runts are not found on the northern isle with the rest of the ice trolls, but they are found in the cave systems (the eastern cave before completion of The Fremennik Isles, and the western cave after). They're also found south of the bridge to the troll isle just north-west of Neitiznot. In this location, they tend to engage in combat with the Honour guards just east of the bridge. While they prefer to attack the guards, they will attack a player if the player is their first target, until they grow tolerant of the player.
This is an excellent spot for Ironmen with High Level Alchemy to earn gold, as the Runts drop several valuable items. An Ironman can earn a drop with only one successful hit, letting the Honor guards do the rest of the work (An Ironman will NOT get a drop if any other player also gets a hit). This tactic can be used effectively with range, magic, or melee, with magic and range being the best to stay out of the way of hits. It's also recommended to have Protect from Melee available on Quick-prayers, as the Runts can hit hard.
This is an also an excellent choice for training Slayer if a player has received a troll task, as they have better drops than their Mountain troll counterparts and the player can complete the task more quickly and safely since they are constantly fighting with the Honour guards.

- Players who have done the Fremennik Isles quest can make their own Yak-hide armour using items easily obtained on Neitiznot. It thus is very inexpensive and has good damage-stopping properties against trolls.
