|Always drops||Zogre Bones|
The Mutant Tarn is a powerful and deadly boss that drops Chaotic items and Zogre bones, which can be used to train prayer. It can use a wide variety of damaging attacks. Mutant Tarn has 1500 hitpoints and very high defense. It is recommended to use the Deflect Magic prayer. The boss still does very high damage even through prayer, which is why it is also recommended to keep your health above 70 at all times. Mutant Tarn has the following attacks:
How to get there
Step 1: Teleport to "Tarn & Ice Queen" under the "Bosses" teleport option
Step 2: Kill Hobgoblins or Hellhounds until you reach the required kill count to enter the red portal.
Tarn is aggressive, so it is recommended to turn on the Deflect Magic prayer before entering the portal.
Gear and inventory setup
As noted above, the Mutant Tarn is always extremely crowded, often with multiple players in maxed gear. To have a reasonable chance of getting kills, then, you must also be in maxed or near-maxed gear. Currently, melee has far better damage-per-second (DPS) than any other combat style, so the best setup is melee. Defense is essentially irrelevant here, so you should use the gear that provides the best offensive bonuses possible. In addition, you will need to bring a Steel Titan with Steel of Legends scrolls. Having that familiar will significantly increase your damage output and give you a better chance of getting the kill.
Many players cast Vengeance while at Tarn to further increase the damage they do. However, this is optional because damage reflected via Vengeance does not count towards determining which player gets the kill. The only advantage of Vengeance, then, is slightly faster kills.
||It is recommended to use a Steel Titan familiar (requires 99 summoning). This summoning familiar will help you attack Mutant Tarn with its special move. Steel of legends scrolls are required to use the Steel Titan special move.|
Tips and tricks
Getting your titan out of the way
Steel Titans can spec equally well from anywhere, so you might as well keep them from walking around on the boss and making it difficult to right-click. If you run next to the northeast wall and call your familiar, it will get stuck in the wall and stay there for the remainder of the kill.
Video of killing Mutant Tarn
The most important drop from the Mutant Tarn are the Zogre Bones that it drops every kill as these offer 120k 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. There is also a very rare chance of receiving a Mutant Tarn pet if you kill this boss.
