Strategy[edit | edit source]
Players should use a spear for the fight, as all damage dealt to the Corporeal Beast by a weapon other than a spear or hasta is reduced by 50%. Summoning familiars should not be used either, as the beast will consume them, healing itself by the amount of life points that the familiar had remaining.
Despite being categorised as mid-level boss, the Corporeal Beast is significantly stronger than most other bosses around its level in solo encounters. Protection prayers/curses only block 25% of damage dealt by the Corporeal Beast's damage (instead of the usual 50%).
The Beast uses melee and magic auto-attacks. It uses three different magic special attacks:
- High damage - indicated by a blast-like projectile. This attack can deal up to 4,500 Magic damage if not protected against.
- Stat draining - a weaker, more transparent projectile. It deals less damage but drains the player's Magic, Summoning or Prayer level. If these levels are already at 0 then the attack will instead deal a greater amount of damage.
- Multi-hit - an extremely transparent and wavy orb that targets the tile that the player is standing on. Upon impact with the player it will deal a relatively high amount of damage. If it does not hit a player then it will shatter into five smaller orbs which rebound and can deal a lower amount of damage if they hit a player. All orbs have a 3x3 area of effect (AoE).
The beast can also spawn a level 105 dark energy core. The core will target and move towards the player (or one of the players if killing the beast with others). If a player is within a 3x3 AoE centred on the core they will be dealt 400-600 hard typeless damage and lose 20 prayer points for every tick that they remain in the area. Damage dealt by the core will also restore the Corporeal Beast's health by the same amount. There is no limit to how many cores the Beast can summon during a fight. Hits that deal over 5,000 damage will prompt the Beast to almost immediately launch a core in response.
Whenever a dark energy core spawns, it should be taken out with AoE abilities. Using Hurricane and/or Cleave should be sufficient. If none of these abilities are available, it is best to run around the beast so that the core has to keep tracking the player until the abilities can be used.
