Are not gargoyles at all. Ran my bard/mage down to do the new 'Gathering Proof' quest, as I've been wanting an actual reason to fight these new pesky gargoyles in the Abyss...and to try out my gargoyle slayer Scrappers book that's been lying around... It did nothing for damage. Neither did my regular demon slayer book. Damage was the same as any ordinary book. No bonus whatsoever. Also noticed a demon slayer nor gargoyle slayer instrument didn't help reduce peace and provo failures. Are these guys really 160 barding? Or more likely the demon/gargoyle bonus isn't been applied, just like the spellbook.
