|Examine||It's a sort of unicorn|
Because there are many Unicorns in the area and no need to wait for spawns, this makes Black Unicorns the fastest way to collect unicorn horns. It is advised that a player takes Varrock teleportation runes for quick escape (Level 25 magic required) if a PKer should come, and for faster banking. If a player is high enough level it is possible to not wear armor and bring only a weapon, leaving more inventory space for unicorn horns.
Black unicorns, like other unicorns and monsters which retreat, will run away when they are low on health which can be time consuming to chase them down every time they run off. One way to avoid this is to retreat 1 square away as soon as their health drops below 1/3, and then attack again to finish the kill. This way, they don't have a chance to run off. This same strategy can be applied to other monsters which retreat from combat when low on HP.
