The red salamander is a creature that can be obtained using the Hunter skill, at level 59. Once collected, it becomes a red salamander weapon in your inventory, for use with the Ranged skill. Red salamanders do not stack within your inventory.
Hunting Red Salamanders
Hunting red salamanders requires one rope and one small fishing net per trap. The location allows for four traps to be easily managed at a time. Remember that 60 hunter is required to have four traps set up simultaneously.
To set the trap, just click the "set-trap" option on a young tree while you have the required materials (rope and a small fishing net) in your inventory.
Each red salamander grants 272 experience, which is more experience than red chinchompas. Because of this, many players choose to catch red salamanders until level 80. If you're more interested in making money than experience, switching to red chinchompas at level 63 is advisable.
