  • Requirements: None
  • Drops distribution: Coinshare

NOTE: DO NOT use curses, the deflective properties can cause the the magical attack to bounce around and kill everybody. Unless you would like to die a quick and painful death do not use them. Curses can denote a kick from the friends chat if this is a recurring problem.

Preparation[edit source]

The kalphite queen hits very hard and accurately, so good armour is imperative. Some suggestions follow - note that Verac's armour set is very effective in the fight, and not using it requires a slightly different strategy and setup.

The Fight[edit source]

Before the fight, we will meet up at Shantay Pass. Once everyone is ready, we will pass through the gate (remember, you can pay the toll from your money pouch or bank; a pass is not required), and head west to the Kalphite Hive. Once we reach there, we will climb down (you will need a rope here if you have not climbed down before - advised to do beforehand), and make our way through the hive until shortly before the entrance to the queen's lair (again, a rope is required). Once ready, we will run into the deeper lair and attack the queen.

Make sure to turn on lootshare in advance; the coinshare option will be on.

The Kalphite Queen uses all three attack styles, with a maximum hit of 314 each. The magic and ranged attacks have 100% accuracy, so praying against one of these is imperative. Protect from magic is suggested. The attacks will also ricochet from player to player. Her melee attack is standard and is affected by armour as normal.

The queen has two forms. Her first form has extremely high defence against ranged and magic, so using melee is the best idea. Once the first form has been killed, the second form will spawn. It has extremely high melee defence, so using ranged, magic, or verac's set is recommended. The second form also spawns a large number of kalphite workers, so turning auto-retaliate off is wise.
