Dagannoth Rex is the melee Dagannoth King found on Waterbirth Island. He is completely immune to ranged and melee damage. Dagannoth Rex is the only dropper of the berserker and warrior rings. He, along with the other Dagannoth Kings, can drop the dragon hatchet.

Obtaining all unique drops from the Kings will unlock the [Name] Bukalla's Heir title.

Locations[edit | edit source]

Strategies[edit | edit source]

Dagannoth Rex is extremely weak to magic attacks, specifically fire spells. Whoever is killing him may want to use the southeastern side, as he can be easily fought there due to his large size.

Many players trap him as his melee attacks will be unable to attack the player. There are many safespots around the arena, but it's best to use a few if you only want to kill him. The best ones would be on the eastern side, as no kings will interfere unless they have been alerted to your presence (e.g. a player moves to your spot with Supreme on him, which makes you also get attacked with ranged).

Because Dagannoth Rex can easily be safe spotted, he is the easiest Dagannoth King to fight.

  1. ^ Jagex. Mod Timbo's Twitter account. 19 January 2018. (Archived from the original on 22 January 2019.) Mod Timbo: "1/1280 if you hit the RDT, requires T4 luck to be worn in order to get a hold of it. Of course there are tons of different ways to access the RDT so it changes massively depending on what you're fighting, what you're wearing etc."
  2. ^ Indicates a failed 1/10 roll for Hazelmere's signet ring.
  3. ^ Indicates a roll for Hazelmere's signet ring without tier 4 luck.
  4. ^ Requires tier 4 luck. Rarer than the vecna skull.
