The kurask overlord is a stronger kurask found inside the Desert Slayer Dungeon. The kurask overlord is fought during the Desert Slayer Dungeon miniquest, which becomes available after completing the Smoking Kills quest. The kurask overlord can only be fought once and during the fight, the overlord summons Kurask minions to aid him.

Killing the kurask overlord requires level 70 Slayer and rewards the player with 1,000 Slayer experience. Contrary to popular belief, killing this boss while having the regular version assigned, does not give more Slayer experience: 1,000 experience is the maximum. However, if the player's current task is kurasks, then the 15% combat bonus of the (full) slayer helmet, black mask, hexcrest and focus sight is in effect, as well as the kurask overlord counting toward the task.

The kurask overlord is immune to all attacks not dealt via a leaf-bladed spear, a leaf-bladed sword, broad arrows, broad-tipped bolts or the Slayer Dart spell. The recommended technique for fighting the kurask overlord is fighting with Slayer Dart and using Protect from Melee. You could also fight using a leaf-bladed sword and use Protect From Melee and bring food and some prayer potions. In addition, there is a safespot available.
