The Fight Kiln is a combat minigame wherein waves of TokHaar are fought for the sole sake of combat and the TokHaar's amusement. It's a tougher and improved sequel to the TzHaar Fight Cave minigame, and is extremely difficult to complete for the average player.
Entering the Fight Kiln requires having done The Elder Kiln, as well as a one-time payment of a fire cape. After this, the kiln may be played as many times as desired for the rewards - a choice of a TokHaar-Kal or an uncut onyx.
Obtaining all unique drops will unlock the title, Kal-Haar-Xil [Name].
Unlike the typical 63 waves of the Fight Cave, the Fight Kiln only has 37 waves. While there is no combat level pattern to be followed for each wave, the waves are always the same between attempts, and the monsters always spawn in the same location. To reach the end of the minigame, players must fight a total of 7 TokHaar-Jad - who function in much the same way as the standard TzTok-Jad - before being faced with their final challenge; the gigantic Har-Aken.
There are several safespots in the Fight Kiln that can be used to lure and trap the TokHaar. Be aware, however, that the cave will slowly fill with lava, submerging the safespots and forcing the player to use the low wall in the middle of the area for luring. Lava will fill the cave after waves 10, 20, 30 and 34. By the time the final boss fight with Har-Aken commences, only a square-shaped piece of land will be available.
Every alternate wave will also cause lava crystals to spawn in the Kiln, which can be used to gain bonuses such as temporary invincibility or full prayer and life point restoration. Use them to the fullest to survive the waves - especially the 7 TokHaar-Jads and Har-Aken.
Unlike the Fight Cave, players are allowed to bring a familiar into the arena. Like the Fight Cave, players are able to save their progress at the end of each wave.
Monsters[edit | edit source]
|Name||Level||First Wave||Count||Life points||Attack style||Max hit||Weakness||Notes|
||100||1||20||4,000||Melee||384||Water spells||By far the weakest creature in this minigame, it hardly does any damage and can be killed quickly. Using magic to kill it is recommended.|
||140||1||8||7,000||Ranged||576||Crush||Using melee to kill it is recommended.|
|547 (ranged) 547 (melee)||Crush||Using melee to kill it is recommended, and it should also be the first priority to kill in most cases (unless it is trapped).|
|Bolts||It attacks with magic and melee (when in melee range). Always stand at least a square away from one. Using ranged to kill it is recommended.|
~20% of max life points (special)
It needs to be hit with either a rune or dragon pickaxe anywhere between 2-5 times to remove its armour. After the armour has been removed, it can be damaged. Dreadnips or a combat familiar can deal damage through the armour. It attacks with an accurate melee attack and sometimes uses a special attack that hits for consistently high damage. Luring and trapping it is recommended before trying to break its armour. Using magic to kill it is recommended. It tends to use the special attack more if you protect from melee.
Pickaxes in your tool belt will also work at chipping away at the armour, but will require a melee weapon equipped in order to do so.
|Bolts||It should be dealt with as soon as possible since it hits very accurately even when praying against its attack style. Using ranged to kill it is recommended.|
||300||17||30||9,000||Melee||2000||Water spells||It has high strength, so trapping it or using the appropriate protection prayer is recommended. Using magic to kill it is recommended. It is surprisingly weak against dreadnips.|
||180||22||5||8000||Melee||864||Water spells||It is not as dangerous as its combat level suggests, but nevertheless it should be trapped before killing it (use Protect from Melee otherwise). Using magic to kill it is recommended.|
|12250||Nothing||Like TzTok-Jad, it is strongly advised to switch prayers to block its attacks. Small amounts of damage (~100) will be dealt through prayer, however, so healing between prayer switches is recommended to keep life points high. It is recommended to eliminate other monsters before facing TokHaar-Jad. If that is counterproductive, make sure that other monsters do not interfere with the fight. Unlike the Fight Cave variant, they do not summon any Yt-HurKot.|
1094 (magic and ranged)
Ranged tentacles: Slash
Magic tentacles: Thrown
|The final boss of the Fight Kiln, it attacks with numerous magic and ranged tentacles. It can only be defeated by killing its head, which emerges every 72 seconds for 27 seconds. The tentacles can be attacked, but the head will appear regardless. Onslaught in combination with obsidian armour and Crystal (magic) is an effective way to damage the head, but comes with risks, as Onslaught's recoil in conjunction with the tentacles' attacks can potentially kill the caster. It is crucial to wear high defence armour during Onslaught to minimise damage from tentacles, allowing Onslaught to be sustained longer on Har-Aken.|
Crystals[edit | edit source]
In some waves you can obtain lava crystals, which grant certain "power-ups" usable only in the Fight Kiln. Only one crystal can be activated at a time, so the effects cannot be combined. When a crystal is used, the appropriate stat is boosted to 150% (148 at 99) while the other combat stats are reduced to 50% (49 at 99).
It is recommended to pick up the following crystals: Invulnerability, Constitution and Restoration. Others will just occupy inventory space and are NOT needed throughout the fight.
Invulnerability crystal should be used on wave 36. One Constitution crystal is recommended to save for Har-Aken and restoration crystals are useful whenever your life points and prayers are low.
|Invulnerability||Offers complete invulnerability for 30 seconds. It does not work when TokHaar- Ket-Dill uses its special attack, as the damage dealt by it is typeless. Damage will still be received if the crystal is activated after a monster has already done its attack animation.||1, 13, 25|
|Restoration||Fully restores prayer points and life points.||3, 15, 27|
|Magic||Boosts Magic by 50% for 3.5 minutes but also significantly reduces Defence, Strength, and Ranged.||5, 17, 29|
|Ranged||Boosts Ranged by 50% for 3.5 minutes but also significantly reduces Defence, Strength, and Magic.||7, 19, 31|
|Strength||Boosts Strength by 50% for 3.5 minutes but also significantly reduces Defence, Ranged, and Magic.||9, 21, 33|
|Constitution||Boosts Constitution by 50% (rounded down to the nearest hundred) for 3.5 minutes. The Constitution boost also enhances the Unicorn stallion's healing aura scrolls. When the Constitution crystal wears off, the user is healed to full health.||11, 23, 35|

Rewards[edit | edit source]
Upon victory in the Fight Kiln, players are prompted to choose reward between a TokHaar cape — a TokHaar-Kal-Ket, TokHaar-Kal-Xil or TokHaar-Kal-Mej — or an uncut onyx. Players are only able to choose the cape(s) equivalent to the combat style(s) they used most during the minigame. For example, if someone primarily uses melee, they will only get a choice between a TokHaar-Kal-Ket and an onyx, but if someone uses all three combat styles in roughly equivalent amounts, they will have a choice between all three capes and an onyx. It's also possible to have a choice of two capes and an onyx if two styles were used roughly the same amount over the third style.
The TokHaar-Kal capes are some of the best in the game, possessing a damage bonus of 31 in their respective combat styles.
The kiln can be played multiple times to get all four rewards. Completing the Kiln once is also a requirement for the completionist cape. Players may also choose to trade in a set of all three TokHaar-Kal with Tzhaar-Mej-Jeh in the central plaza to receive the enhanced fire cape cosmetic override. This will destroy all three capes and is irreversible. Unlocking the enhanced fire cape override is a requirement for the master quest cape.
If a player has a full inventory while choosing a reward, or clicks away from the reward chatbox, they will be transported outside of the Fight Kiln and will have to go back in and talk to TokHaar-Hok again to claim their reward (provided at least 1 free inventory slot is available). The Fight Kiln cannot be played again until a reward is chosen.
