|Grotworms like to get in your face|
Getting there is pretty easy. Forget Remora's Necklace with it's once-a-day teleport. Just modify a house tab for Rimmington, then run a few steps north-east to the White Knight's camp. Once inside, if you have at least 50 Agility take the short-cut to the south, and you're there. If you have to go the long way around, it's a really really long way around, through the length of the caverns.
Grotworms can hit very hard, but most of the time miss or hit lightly. Their drops are better than average. They typically drop 2k - 7k of gold. Rune weapons and armor. Saradomin Brew and Super Restores. Runite Ore, Blood Runes, noted adamant ore, noted flax. Occasionally 2 cooked shark, which come in handy. A few other odds and ends.
|Yes, I got the maze random. That's where the arrows and feathers came from.|
I high-alch all weapons and armour drops. Keep whatever's worth keeping. When my backpack is full of Runite Ore, Sara Brews, and Super Restores it's time to go. Break a house teleport, recharge my prayer at the house altar. Then go to the GE, bank what I want, sell the rest, and head back out.
I timed a random hour, just to get a feel for the value. Below are the results:
- 15 minutes: 100k gold.
- 30 minutes: 155k gold
- 45 minutes: 305k gold
- 60 minutes: 364k gold
Over the course of multiple trips, the hourly profit varies a lot. They're not as profitable as, say, Frost Dragons. But Grotworms don't require my full attention, and the only resource I use up is alching runes, and 2 house teletabs per trip.
A vine whip may not be the best weapon, but it was fast enough for me. Most of the time I was able to go between two Grotworms; one re-generating just as the other died. I like having the shield, so didn't try 2-handed weapons. Don't think they're worth the expense of a degrading weapon, like the Chaotics.
You can bring potions to speed it up if you want. Bring a BOB familiar. You can sell the drops on GE if you'd rather. I'm taking a more laid-back approach. No hurry, no pressure. My last trip cleared 1.5 million in gold, plus 250 Blood Runes, and a number of potions. Avies used to be my 'go-to' low-stress money-maker. Not any more! Grotworms all the way!
