Dark beast standard.png

Dark beasts are large, bull-like monsters requiring level 90 Slayer to harm. They attack with both magic and melee, though they use magic far more frequently than melee. The Iorwerth Clan encountered dark beasts in the Mourner Tunnels during the Elven Civil War, and they often killed the slaves that the Iorwerth Clan were using to find the Temple of Light.

A Mask of Gloom (and its upgraded variant) can be used to have Slayer Masters give you the option of taking a dark beast task once a day, provided that you are wearing it. The dark beast assignment token also has similar mechanics, but only works on Morvran.

Dark beasts are well known for their slightly uncommon blue charm drop, the dark bow, and dark arrowheads. They are one of two creatures able to drop death talismans, the other being dragon implings. They are also good droppers of the rare drop table, and are one of the slayer monsters to drop the crystal triskelion pieces.

While dark beasts can only be accessed by members, their lower-level revenant counterparts are on both member and free to play worlds. If assigned as a Slayer task, revenant dark beasts may take their place, although this is not recommended due to their higher damage output, slow respawn, and the risk of player killers.

Using good ranged equipment, soul split, a bonecrusher and demon horn necklace, a player can stay as long as they want as their defence is quite low for their level.

If the player is killing dark beasts for a Slayer assignment in the Forinthry Dungeon then they can gain 20% additional Slayer experience by equipping a demonic skull. They can gain another 20% extra experience per kill if they accept a special slayer contract from Erskine while assigned dark beasts as a Slayer task. These experience bonuses stack, meaning the player may gain 40% extra Slayer experience. Completing a special slayer contract rewards the player with a choice of coins or combat experience.

Strategy and tactics[edit | edit source]

Main article: Dark beast/Strategies
Well last time I fought Dark beasts I used a crossbow with bolts and took them down effectively.

Dark beasts are large, dog-like predators with massively muscled bodies that protect them from crushing weapons. I've managed to trap a few in the dungeon I'm guarding.

Wilderness shared loot table[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Dark beasts were involved in the God Wars, as evidenced by the revenant dark beasts located in the Forinthry Dungeon.
  • Dark beasts used to drop normal bones, despite being a large monster. This was changed on 11 April 2012 to big bones. This also gave them a chance to drop long bones and curved bones.
  • There was a bug affecting dark beasts, causing them to sound like Ganodermic Beast. This was patched on 5 August 2019. The change reverted the audio to a much older file.
  • On 13 October 2014, dark beasts were one of many monsters to receive a reworked drop table.
  • Dark beasts resemble an ancient rhinoceros species named Elasmotherium. Both have large, stocky bodies, and very large horns on the face.
  • As of 1 February 2018, the highest kill count for this monster was 1,239,731 kills.[1]
    • This had increased to 1,415,899 by 6 May 2018.[2] At this time, these were the most killed monsters of those tracked.
