OSRS Harpie Bug Swarms Guide

Harpie Bug Swarm.png

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 damage these monsters (the lantern must be lit and equipped). If you do not have 33 Firemaking, you cannot be assigned harpie bug swarms as a Slayer task.

Harpie bug swarms should be an easy task for well-equipped mid-level players; their abundance as well as the fact that they remain aggressive to players until level 93 combat makes this task very click-easy. As harpie bug swarms are very accurate, and will often hit for up to 6 Hitpoints, it is advisable to have Defence levels from 40-50+ and to bring food appropriate for the player's level, such as lobsters. Another option for those that have completed Tai Bwo Wannai Trio is to keep Protect from Melee up and recharge prayer at the Tribal Statue about 30 seconds away.

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

There are two safespots: one between the two trees to the south behind the small jungle plant, and another to the north on the beaches of the fairy ring (DKP). Players can setup a cannon to range or melee 2+ swarms to the west, but will need runes to telegrab any desired drops. You can use a dwarf multicannon in this location, but you have to equip the bug lantern for the cannon to deal damage.

It is highly recommended to bring antipoison while travelling around Karamja, the only spawn location for this slayer monster.
