1. Introduction

On the 7th of November 2005, Jagex realised one of the deadliest creatures in Runescape. These creatures have since become one of the prime ways to make and lose money. They can do the highest runescape damage after TzTok-Jad. It is impossible to kill them alone. Even if you can, you are not being efficient. The only way to kill them is by help of a friend(s). These creatures were also realised to make us improve our teamwork skills indirectly. This also means that your friend(s) should be trustworthy. It is highly suggested that you do not slay Dagannoth kings with the people you do not trust. Rest of this guide will help you understand, and teach you how to slay these powerful creatures.

 

2. Location

Dagannoth Kings are located on the Waterbirth Island Dungeon. In order to reach the dungeon, you must get to Relekka or you can use Lunar magic to teleport there (recommended).

 

There are several ways to get to Relekka:

  1. Use a lyre and walk north
  2. Move your house to Fremenik towns, and teleport there.
  3. Teleport to seers and walk northwest to Relekka

Once you get to Relekka, go to the most farthest dock. You will find two people. One of them being Jarvald.

Right click on him and select "Travel Jarvald". If you haven't done the Fremenik Trials quest, you will be charged 50gp. This is a small amount to pay but it takes up your inventory for the kings. As soon as you get to the island, follow the path east. You will soon find yourself in front of the dungeon. When you wish to enter it you will prompted by two choices:

Select "Go in, I don't mind dying!". Once your inside turn on Protection from Melee or Protection from Range prayer. If you have Rune thrownaxe then everyone should head north as this is the easiest route of the three.

 

One person can stand on one pad and the other on the second pad. This is necessary to open the gate. After it is open, run half-way and then walk. You may turn on protection from melee if you want (not recommended). After you reach the gate, wield rune throwing axe and turn on special attack. Then aim at the center pad in order to destroy all the pads. This will enable you to get to the ladder. Climb down the ladder and navigate the dungeon using the map. (**If you aimed at the prop ahead of you, none of the props would be destroyed except for the one ahead of you)

 

If you did not have rune thrownaxe, then two people head north while the other two head through the center gate. Both you and your friend(s) run through the monsters and the people who went through the middle (Wallaski route) must turn on Protection From Magic as Wallaskis can hit up to 26! Once you both reach the props, aim at the other person's prop using a range weapon or a magic attack. Destroy them and climb down using the ladder. Now navigate through the map below.

11. Slaying Methods

 

routeslg1.png

 

When you are ready enter the ladder for the kings. The mage always enters first as it is easier to lure rex and keep others safe, especially people who will be killing Dagannoth Supreme. Others enter after 2 or 3 seconds.

 

Mage:

Image for mage (above left), shows the path you can take. Once you reach the other end, attack Rex. Rex will come for you and will get trapped along the coast line. You can now safely manage to kill Rex. Keep Protection From Magic on, until Prime keeps attacking you. If he stops, you can remove it or change it to Protection From Missiles. After you kill Rex, he will respawn in the center so be ready by walking 2 or 3 steps west. Repeat the process if needed.

 

If Rex is dead, and your team mates are killing Dagannoth Supreme, run up to the rex's respawn spot, and keep Protection From Range on. If rex respawns before supreme dies, he will hopefully come after you instead of going after your friend(s). If you are with an inexperienced group, this will lead to people running around entire place, and may eventually lead up to one of them being killed. If this happens, just remain at your spot and kill rex. Tell your friends to finish supreme off! This will be very handy as if Prime respawns, then all 3 of them can be on them.

If Rex does go after you do not immediately run to the safe spot. You must lure it there slowly and at the same time make sure your health is high. In order to achieve this, turn on Protection From Melee when rex respawns, and move 2 - 3 steps towards your safe spot, and let Rex catch up to you. Once he is done that, move 2 - 3 steps again towards the safe spot. Once you are sure that they are out of Rex's sight, run over to the safe spot and kill Rex. Repeat the process if needed.

 

Ranger:

As soon as you enter, run to your appropriate spot as shown in the image above (second from the left). Once there, drink a range potion if you have not drank it yet, and start ranging Prime. You may heal using Guthans on the Spinolyps if you wish. Make sure you have Protection From Magic on all the times. If you want you can attack Dagannoth Supreme and heal on him. If you do so, turn on Protection from Missiles. DO NOT ATTACK WHEN PRIME IS ALIVE! This will either get you killed or get you low on food. You do not want that. This is really easy and does not require for you to be a genius to understand this simple method for rangers.

 

3 Step prayer rule

It is possible to turn off Protection from Magic against Prime when ranging. You or your friend(s) can take turns on how to take hits from Prime. The person who will be taking hits from Prime must be at least 3 step away than the rest of the group. Also, no one else should be within a 5 step range from Prime. Everyone except the person taking hits from Prime can keep their Protection From Magic prayer off. If the person who is taking hits, turn it off he will be dealth damage above 40 (if lucky, it will be in the 20s). While you kill, your friend(s) can turn it off as Prime will not change target unless someone else comes near you.

 

In case, Supreme attacks a person who is not taking hits from Prime, then turn on Protection from Range on and continue killing Prime. However, if Supreme attacks the person killing Prime, then all of the rangers or warriors there must attack Supreme. This would avoid waste of food and will take less time. Once Supreme has been killed, go back to slaying Prime. (*Keep your Protection from Magic prayer ON!)

 

Warrior:

This is the easiest way. Once you enter (drink your potions before entering), keep Protection From Magic on, and kill Dagannoth Supreme. If you wish you may turn on fighting prayers. This will be the hardest Supreme during that trip. This is because you will have to kill it while Prime is still alive. If you brought a weapon like Dragon mace, use it to special on Supreme. Once he is dead, you may use Guthan Warspear on him or Abyssal Whip depending on your hp. You may have to eat a shark or drink a saradomin brew. After Supreme has been killed, run over to the rangers, go all the way to the north east coastline. Now you must wait for the rangers to kill Prime before attacking Supreme. In the meantime, you can heal on Spinolyps if they come near the shore. Once Prime is dead, turn on Protection From Missiles and kill Supreme. Use guthans on him if you wish to. Repeat the process.

 

12. Hybriding: Supreme and Prime

Drink your potions before entering. Once you enter keep your Protection From magic prayer on and kill Supreme like you would if you are a warrior. Once he is dead, run over to the Ranging spot and attack Prime. Remember to keep Protection From magic. Once Prime has been slayed, turn on Protection From Missiles and kill Supreme. Repeat the process.

This is an efficient method, as less people are needed. It is highly recommended that you do not do this if you are a beginner.

 

14. Slaying: Rex and Supreme only

*Rangers are not needed

Both mage and the warrior enter the dungeon at the same time. Once inside, the mage runs to the North East Rex safe spot. In the meantime, the warrior distracts Supreme and make sures that the mage gets there. Now the warriors runs back up, and goes east to the safe spot (avoids dagannoths and wallaskis). Now the warrior must wait for the mage to lure prime. Once Prime has been lured, mage will tell the warrior that it is safe to come back down. The warrior heads down once he/she has recieved this message. Now all the warrior has to do is slay Supreme with Protection From Missiles prayer.

 

Luring Prime

This is the hardest part in this method and only the mage can achieve this. Staying at the Rex's north east safe spot, the mage must wait for Prime to go north. More north it goes better it should be. Prime should atleast pass you in going north. Once prime is all the way north, attack it (Protection From magic prayer on). Now run all the way south, and then go back to Rex's south safe spot. Prime should have moved to the Rex's north safe spot and should be visible in the mini-map. Once this has been achieved, you should signal the warrior that it is safe to enter. Drink Super restore when your prayer is low.

 

15. Lurers

Sadly, this is the place where most lurers come to try to get some cash. Unlike wilderness, here they try to get all three Dagannoth kings on you. This will lead to death, 75% of the time. When lurers do come in, tell mage that lurers are here. This will warn the mage and the mage will turn on Protection from magic if it was off (Most of the lurers, go for the mage first). Now head straight out the dungeon and hop worlds. Do not run around in there. If you wish you do not move at all, and let the lurers die. You can just kill Supreme and waste a little food until lurers die or get bored and leave.

 

16. Conclusion

In conclusion, Dagannoth kings are the most powerful creatures after TzTok Jad. Killing them can be fun, exciting and dangerous. If you do not trust your friend, do not go with them! Also, always share the drops and do not be greedy. You are already making enough money and you should consider yourself lucky that you can make money this way compare to other who cant. So always share the drops and play fair. Do not steal drops, or their items if they die. It's just pixels! So good luck, and do not be a noob.

AWESOME GUIDE!!!!! very nice :thumbs:. I just want to know if you are going to make screenshots for inventories and for gear to wear, it would be better. Just something though: make lists and take out every slang word like: noob, pixel, prop...as some people might dont know what they mean. I also noticed something else...There is a part when you say:

Both you run through the monsters and the middle person must turn on Protection From Magic as Wallaskis can hit up to 26!
And just after you say: maximum damage of Wallaskis is 17...

 

You should maybe add a part at the end, before the conclusion that says what drop can you get by slaying these monsters. And you can maybe add a little bit more pictures in the text. I dont know if you are going to add links at the end but i just want to remind you ^_^

 

Otherwise, good guide :thumbs:

On 7 November 2005, Jagex realised one of the most deadliest creatures in Runescape. These creatures have since become one of the prime ways to make and lose money. They can do the highest runescape damage after TzTok-Jad. It is impossible to kill them alone. Even if you can, you are not being efficient. The only way to kill them is by help of a friend(s). These creatures were also realised to make us improve our teamwork skills indirectly. This also means that your friend(s) should be trustworthy. It is highly suggested that you do not slay Dagannoth kings with the people you do not trust. Rest of this guide will help you understand, and teach you how to slay these powerful creatures.

 

say instead "on the 7th of November 2005" or "on November 7th, 2005" the way u have it is bad grammar no offence :P

 

 

otherwise this is one of the most Excellllllent guides i've seen in depth and well thought out

Rest of this guide will help you understand, and teach you how to slay these powerful creatures.

 

After you reach the gate, weild rune thrown axe, turn on special attack and aim at the middle.

 

You or your friend(s) can take turn on how is going to take hits from Prime. If you are going to take hits from Prime then let your friend(s) stay back (atleast 3 steps away from you!), and you near Prime.

 

More north it goes better it should be. Prime should atleast pass you in going north.

 

I think you meant:

 

The rest of this guide will help you understand how to slay these powerful creatures.

After you reach the gate, wield rune throwing axe (should be throwing axe throughout).

 

I'm not quite sure what the last two are supposed to mean.

 

Otherwise, looks like a quality, well-written guide! :D

The requirements are all wrong. 70 mage is perfectly fine if you are maging with someone else. 50+ prayer instead of 43 because you need a lot of it. And many people use veracs for the prayer bonus.

The only thing that bothered me. Either take out "most" or change it to "most deadly".

 

EDIT: Sorry about this. If you're using "most" with a word ending with "est", dump "most". Yes, I'm being nitpicky, but it makes you come across as an idiot. :D

I find the beginner part uneeded. :D

 

May be better to bring cloaks/skil cape, and stoles. Maybe in the beginner you can replace the set up with verac? Because torag for Dag Kings is just a bad idea. Sure it may offer a good defence bonus but lacks alot of prayer.

 

For hybrids I really suggest something more like this:

^^ This should be for beginners.
