Kerapac, the bound chathead.png

Kerapac, the bound is a Dactyl dragonkin boss. Enslaved by Jas following the events of Desperate Measures, Kerapac has been sent to reclaim the Elder God eggs stolen by the mortal races and placed within Senntisten in a last ditch effort to prevent The Great Revision. Kerapac is the leader of the Nodon forces that were sent with him as part of the Nodon Front. Taking the Staff of Armadyl and The Needle with him, Kerapac has a myriad of attacks and abilities at his disposal.

As with the other generals of the Elder God Wars Dungeon, kill count is not needed as a prerequisite to face Kerapac. He can be fought in a team of 1 to 3 players; like bosses within Elite Dungeons (1, 2 & 3), his health does not scale, but his mechanics are adjusted accordingly.

Kerapac's drops include his wrist wraps, tier 85 magic power gloves that enhance the Combust and Dragon Breath abilities; a codex that upgrades the Concentrated Blast ability; and the Scripture of Jas, an Elder God book and its pages. Players who are able to subdue him in hard mode will still have access this table, along with the ability to obtain pieces of the Fractured Staff of Armadyl, a tier 95 two-handed staff.

Obtaining all of his unique drops is required for the feat Naughty Dragonkin which awards the title Timeweaver [Name].

Location[edit | edit source]

Kerapac, the bound can be found at the Nodon Front as part of the Elder God Wars Dungeon.

Players can use the pontifex shadow ring to teleport directly to the Cathedral of Azzanadra and head north-west to the colosseum. Using the teleportation option in Kerapac's Beasts interface entry takes the player to the Varrock lodestone, a fair distance south-west from the entrance to the ruins of Senntisten.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

Despite being a Dactyl dragonkin, Kerapac counts as a Nodon dragonkin for the purposes of a Slayer assignment. The slayer helm provides accuracy and damage bonuses, but Kerapac is unaffected by Tuska's Wrath's slayer effect. However, he does not count as a dragon for the purposes of a Dragons cluster assignment.

Drops[edit | edit source]

Upon defeat, three drops are given per kill. In solo encounters, the player receives all three drops. In duo encounters, the leftover drop is awarded to the top damaging player. In trio encounters, every player gets their own drop.

Like at Solak, drops from Kerapac are announced in local chat and separated into three different colours; main drops are green, secondary drops are blue, while rare unique drops are orange.

Charms[edit | edit source]

Charms are dropped in stacks of 5 charms. Up to three stacks are received per kill.

Normal Mode[edit | edit source]

The chance of finding a unique boss drop is 1/256 per loot pile, or ~1/85 per solo boss kill. If the roll fails, a common drop will be given instead.[1]

  1. ^ a b c Drop rate increased by 2% after upgrading to enriched pontifex shadow ring.

Hard Mode[edit | edit source]

The chance of obtaining a piece of the fractured staff of Armadyl is 1/450 per loot pile, or 1/150 per solo boss kill. If this roll fails, there is a 1/192 chance of obtaining the scripture, wrist wraps or codex per loot pile, or 1/64 per solo boss kill. This, in turn, means a ~1/135 chance for any unique drops per loot pile, or a ~1/45 chance per solo boss kill.[1]

  1. ^ a b c Random part dropped first, then the next roll on this table guarantees one of the other two pieces.
  2. ^ a b c d e f Drop rate increased by 2% after upgrading to enriched pontifex shadow ring.
  3. ^ a b c This fraction cannot be simplified. Approximately 1/578.

Secondary drops[edit | edit source]

It is possible to receive multiple secondary drops in a single kill.

  1. ^ Replaced by its tradeable version after the player has upgraded their pontifex shadow ring with 1,000 anima of Jas.
  2. ^ a b c Requires completion of Azzanadra's Quest.
  3. ^ a b c Elder Trove hourly drop limit varies depending on the tier of the Pontifex shadow ring.
  4. ^ Only obtainable when the Pontifex shadow ring is not upgraded, overcharged or worn.
  5. ^ Only obtainable once the Pontifex shadow ring has been upgraded to tier 3 or higher. Replaces the T1 Trove.
  6. ^ Only obtainable once the Pontifex shadow ring has been upgraded to tier 5 or higher. Replaces the T2 Trove.
  7. ^ a b c Triskelion fragments are dropped in order.
  8. ^ Normal mode

  11. ^ There's a 1% chance an elite clue scroll will be upgraded to a master clue scroll.
  12. ^ Has a base drop rate of 1/3,000 (normal mode) or 1/1,500 (hard mode), per loot pile, both with a threshold of 500.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Kerapac is voiced by Kerry Shale.
    • Kerry is also the name of Kerapac's boss pet.
  • There was a bug on release where Kerapac's hard mode kills could not be found through the quick chat search bar. It was still available to quick chat but one would have to navigate to hard mode boss kills through the quick chat menu (key combo FHM1). Personal bests could not be quick-chatted. This was silently fixed with the 9 August 2021 update.[source needed]
  • When quick-chatting the amount of times the player has defeated Kerapac, the term 'killed' is used, despite the fact that Jas prevents Kerapac from dying. This also applies to fellow Elder God War Dungeon bosses Croesus, the Arch-Glacor and TzKal-Zuk, who also do not die.
  • Despite being a Dactyl Dragonkin Kerapac is considered part of a Nodon Dragonkin slayer assignment.
  • Kerapac is the only Elder God Wars Dungeon boss that does not appear in the overworld, as his arena is part of an instance. While the arena can be accessed for Archaeology purposes, he does not appear in this variant either.
