A few people on the official forums think it drops Holy elixirs. I'd like to wait for proof myself... Sir Revan125 15:57, 15 September 2008 (UTC)

The Max hit of 51 is only for Melee. People have seen the beast hit 65 with it's magic based Attack. Might even hit higher.

Revenant-Style healing...?[edit source]

People keep posting that the reason Ruby Bolts deal only 100 damage is that the beast only has 500 HP at any one time, but that it can draw from a separate HP store another 1500 to keep this at full until 1/4 of its bar. As this is unconfirmed, I would ask that no one post this without citation and instead leave the accurate description of what we can observe in game. Thank you.

34 kills now. =D

I just hit a 551 on corp with my statious hammer and it didn't die this false information.

Template[edit source]

I realized we have a template of most high leveled monsters, we needs to put this monster on the top...

Dragon Kite Shield, Hp change?[edit source]

Can anyone confirm either of those two things, or is it just bs??? --Vynergy 02:36, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

I am deleting the entry --Vynergy 02:42, 16 September 2008 (UTC) It IS fake.

Drop Confirmed?[edit source]

We've listed the sigils and elixers as drops from the corporeal beast, however, are we sure of this, i.e has there been any confirmation(official is better, player is chancey at the best)

there HAVE been videos of the beast dropping sigils, bu then again, they may equally be, what proof do we have?--Nature rune.pngFireyfoxTALKLaw rune.png 14:31, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

Undead?[edit source]

On the Spirit Beast Article it's classified as "un-dead". Is The Corporeal Beast also undead? If so, someone should add that equipping a Salve amulet/(e) could be useful in killing it.

y not use cannon run out of room go back when balls hav run out if u die go 2 nurmof and get cannon bak

What is up with cumming on the dragon will do a lot of damage? I'll delete it. --Rune kiteshield.pngDeathsathandHigh Level Alchemy icon.png 20:18, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

A cannon hits 0 practically 99% of the time. It is only good for when the dark cores come out. - Mierda142(another random 'Scaper O_o)

I don't quest, I know very little about the monster except it technically outclasses Jad. But why does this page attract so many editors? It's not a major update... May be coloured blue in the near 05:58, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

Not....a.....major update.....??

have you fought this BEAST!?

It must be the highest levelled combat update since the fight caves jad.....Nature rune.pngFireyfoxTALKLaw rune.png 07:37, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

By major I meant something like RfD, new wildy, 12/10, rs hd... not minigames or one-part quests
we didn't get nearly this much activity during GWD and 12/10 updates. I still don't get itMay be coloured blue in the near 10:43, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

The 4 new shield ARE the best shield ingame, and they are the most valuable drop of a monster (sigils) since... since nothign in fact, this update bring many new record: highest lvl/hp for a npc, best mulitple unique drop, highest chance of death, etc...) zebe311whoforgothiswikipassword88.197.212.81 19:05, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

Oh ok. May be coloured blue in the near 22:33, 18 September 2008 (UTC)
"most valuable drop of a monster (sigils) since... since nothign in fact". You forget the Godsword Hilts. It hasn't been long since the Armadyl and Saradomin hilts were close to or above 90 million coins. And to answer the original question - I'm guessing the Salve amulet ((e) or not) along with crumble undead have no effect on the beast - due to the meaning of Corporeal itself. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 17:27, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

It's probably called the CORPOREAL beast and not the spirit beast (after the quest anyway) because it is in the real realm, not the spirit one... right? --

Slayer cape (t).png TheHighEndOfLow Abyssal whip.png

22:01, January 4, 2010 (UTC)

The meaning is also the same for zombies, so maybe it does work after all. Zombies retain their bodies and the undead spell works. I also have to point out that the corporal beast was formed by the death of the spirit beast in the spirit world, if you didn't notice already what happens between the two planes. What happens in one plane is reciprocal to the other (i.e. empty water from barrel in real world, fill it in spirit world, hence kill spirit beast in spirit world, gives birth to corporal beast in real world. And if someone does argue that the human spirits died, they just passed on since they once existed in the real world and were killed.--Heroic Robb 00:15, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
If killing the spirit beast causes the corporeal beast to come into being, then surely defeating the corporeal beast would make the spirit beast appear once more...? Which is not the case in-game... Fishing cape.png Kate the HuntressQuest.png 15:16, 26 October 2018 (UTC)

Protect from magic[edit source]

Protect from magic the only prayer you need????

He got a ranged attack which is ranged or melee for sure, btw DAMAGED HIM.. Buzz (Talk#P ) 13:47, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

What the ....?[edit source]

At the begin of the article:

Turn on Protect from Magic and enter the lair

At the end of the article:

Protect from magic will not work at this monster

????? Buzz (Talk#P ) 09:32, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

Also: At the begin of the article:

and a maximum magic hit of 650

In the attacks section:

The claw attack hits 750 damage

Can someone fix this by confirming one or both?

Coolcoder9t 02:50, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

Protect from magic decreases the damage his magic attacks can do (lowers max hit), which is still rather high but you will most likely be 1 hit killed without it. AS for the confusion with the max hit/ claw, his max hit with magic is 650 and a separate attack he has, the claw, has a max hit of 752 different attacks, 2 different max hits.

Just wondering haven't been to the beast but i know majority of the max hits so IS the claw range?

All togethor the beast;[edit source]

The beast hits 171 all together so I bet it would own Jad. Ancient staff.pngHowiter1Zamorak staff.png 14:54, 29 September 2008 (UTC)

I assume you mean that each of the beast's max hits added together is 171. To make a fair comparison, you would need to do the same of TzTok-Jad - 97 for each style, therefore a total of 291.
This idea appeals to me... compare the Corporeal Beast with TzTok Jad... I shall have to add it to my userpage! Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 21:57, 29 September 2008 (UTC)
Bah Corporeal would own Jad.

Jad - 250 HP. Corporeal - 2000. Jad might hit a few 100's but the Corporeal would just summon a dark core which would heal him a tonne. :P 19:58, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

Strategies[edit source]

I added the two most common strategies used to defeat the Corporeal Beast, so hopefully that will fulfill the "work in progress."  Tien  12:52, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

Can't stand under the beast no more[edit source]

Well well. Jagex has added a new quirk to the Corporeal beast. It can deal damage to players standing under it by stomping on them. Not sure if this is a really powerful attack, but still, the strategies are useless now... except for maybe the west method. I really hope Jagex changes this; the Corporeal beast is now harder to kill than ever.  Tien  12:41, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

The reason they added the stomp attack was probobly because it was too easy to kill (for it's level). Has anyone found the stomp attack's max hit yet. I would really like to know (I haven't actually fought the beast yet, the quest was more than enough). Thunder9092 00:54, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
Actually, now that I've killed the beast a few times (with a team), it's still actually fairly easy to kill the beast with the West method. The Stomp attack can hit 30s, and Protect from Melee does not work.  Tien  18:09, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

Unique drops[edit source]

Should Holy Elixir and Spirit Shield be out of that category since Corporeal Beast isn't the only monster to drop them? --Flajuram 18:30, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

name[edit source]

Anyone else find the name difficult to pronounce? "Coroporal", "Corporal", "Coporeal" would be much easier to say. I know Corporeal is a real word, but at least in American English, two consecutive syllables ending in "r" is a bit rare. May be coloured blue in the near 11:03, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

the second r is not the end of the second syllable but the start of the third : cor-po-real

In case you were interested, it comes from the latin, corpus, corporis, meaning body, hence the meaning in this case is that creature has a body rather than just being a spirit. Administrator Hurston (T # C) 09:15, 2 January 2009 (UTC)
Just to add - easy pronounciation is "Cor-poor-ee-al". Should make things easier. --Deathslay142 19:52, April 27, 2010 (UTC)

Cheap strategy[edit source]

The Magic longbow has an extremely accurate special attack. If used with rune arrows doesn't this do 20+ damage? So depending on how fast the corporeal beast can heal without any of it's attacks and if you ran out after the attack, it would be possible to not only solo, but not take any damage? I don't know for sure, just randomly thought of it. What do you guys think?--Kodeman76 21:17, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

Update: It seems to be working but I still take damage from the time I walk in and out. However, I can confirm that all attacks hit since i watched my experience go up. I noticed on the page it says the beast is not immune to poison, it this true?--Kodeman76 21:36, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

Yet another update. I tried using rune arrows p++ and it never poisoned him so I don't think that information is correct. Secondly, does the beast heal with it's magic attack and not just the core or eating familiars? or does it simply have a high restore rate? because after doing 500+ damage according to my experience I got curious and attacked him out of hiding so I could see his hp and it was a full. new strategy. If you have a friend, energy transfer is helpful for the special attack. if not, using vengeance might be a way to destroy the beast.--Kodeman76 22:02, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

Last update, didn't work. I was retarded and didn't read that exiting will cause it to regain all of it's hp back.--Kodeman76 22:27, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

Summoning[edit source]

Can it be hurt by your Familiar? if so, is it reccomended?Bulbear4444 19:31, 8 February 2009 (UTC)

It probably can be hurt by them, but keep in mind that the beast will devour them. I wouldn't recommend this strategy. Dtm142 19:53, 8 February 2009 (UTC)

It will also regain hp from the familiar eaten o_O (what a insane monster).

-- Defence Waterkunai1 Talk # fluffy bunniesArmadyl symbol.png 00:25, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

How much HP does it heal and can it mass-eat or is it a 1 at a time thing? Because if its not too much HP and must eat each individually then an expletive load of people with steel titans could own him.

Yeah it can hurt it but only 1 or 2 times then it dies so you might want to take a BoB and let it die so you have more supplys

Anyone define?[edit source]

"A more powerful spiky blast of energy at a player, which is magic-based. This can deal up to 65 damage, though damage is reduced with the Protect from Magic prayer. This will not block all damage from the Beast's magic attack, only 40%. " By 40%, does it mean it reduces damage by 40% (39 damage) or you get hit by 40% the damage (26 damage)? --King x treme 05:46, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

Hmm. I don't think it reduces by 40%. I've been hit by it with protect from magic and it can deal 42 on me. Santa hat.png Powers38 おはようヾ(´・ω・`) 05:34, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
I believe they mean like prayers against a player, it only prevents 40% from ever hitting youTeh alch 03:26, August 28, 2010 (UTC)

Extra observations[edit source]

The beast drains your summoning points when it hits you (with magic attack??). If your summoning points have reached 0 it will randomly drain your HP or Prayer and maybe other stats too. A message will inform you of this.

The beast can get poisoned by hitting it with emerald bolts (e).

Hitting the core with an emerald bolt (e) will stun the core and keep it in place for a short amount of time. When the core is stunned it will be safe to stand next to it. This method is refered to as stunning.

Solo on Corporeal Beast?[edit source]

Has anyone ever beat the corporeal beast solo, or if not even duet? Ocenar 01:49, 4 June 2009 (UTC)

It is practically impossible to solo the corporeal beast. He hits real high and hits through prayer. If you leave the cave, he gets full life. I'm not sure about duel, but it would be hard also. It's best to fight in teams of 5+ or so.Santa hat.png Powers38 おはようヾ(´・ω・`) 01:53, 4 June 2009 (UTC)
Do we trust this latest entry about soloing the Beast? WWTDD? 14:13, September 21, 2009 (UTC)
Yes, you should Sir Revan, proof can be foundhere.

This is one of SoSolid2kk's videos, however the soloer was Woox16. I'm showing you SoSolid's video because he sums up the topic nicely and gives links to both of the solo videos (one with Woox and no summoning, one with Woox and a summoning familiar). Congratu-fricken-lations to Woox16 for one of the greatest achievements in the game =D Should we add Woox's video to the article as proof? No, not an embed, but rather, a link to the video? Quest point cape.pngLil Diriz 77 Talk Summoning-icon.png 19:39, September 22, 2009 (UTC)

No, it would not add significantly to the article. If people are curious they can look it up on youtube. kitty.pngPsycho Robot talkSilver bar.png 23:33, September 22, 2009 (UTC)

-Sigh- I suppose you're right. But is Woox16's video not truly epic? Just for the sake of conversation? ^_^ Quest point cape.pngLil Diriz 77 Talk Summoning-icon.png 01:17, September 23, 2009 (UTC)

It does however give a new (and effective) strategy by having a person using Statius's_warhammer special attack to reduce the beast defence by 30% and making the beast slightly easier to kill. 11:33, September 27, 2009 (UTC)

Dude i can see another white dot on top of the beast on the without run Kaeleth 06:52, August 16, 2010 (UTC)

Summoning[edit source]

If you have like a Pack Yak with you and with stuff in it. When it gets eaten dose the stuff go too or is it droped on the ground? or something else? Yefpatterson 02:33, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

Drops to the ground UNDER corporeal beast. Meaning if you are trying to pick it up, it can stomp you. Santa hat.png Powers38 おはようヾ(´・ω・`) 05:36, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

summoning[edit source]

cant u jus make a geyser titan and fight a long side the titan but not 2 close. then b4 the titan dies try summoning sometning else then u might hav a chance a slight one but still a chance

Corporal beast has been soloed (video of it is on youtube!!!!!!)[edit source]

The Corporal Beast has finally been soloed, a guy named woox16 managed it. If you search woox16 on youtube you will find his account and if you go on it you will see his video of him soloing it from start to finish.

Thanks, but we already have this information in the article. C.ChiamTalk 12:29, September 27, 2009 (UTC)
The thing I don't understand is why Woox16's name keeps getting removed from the article per RS:PDDA. This is not an article about a player, it is a mention that this player was the one who had this accomplishment. Skills level 99 mentions the first players to achieve level 99 in each skill. Why is mentioning the first player to solo the corporeal beast not permitted? It has been just as thoroughly proven; see [1]. I'm a regular user and I approve this message.  TLUL Talk - Contribs 22:43, October 4, 2009 (UTC) 
I don't understand this either. This is a HUGE accomplishment, just as Skills level 99 is. I agree with The last username left, and I propose that a link to the video should be added. This isn't any ordinary achievement, it's history. Quest point cape.pngLil Diriz 77 Talk Summoning-icon.png 22:48, October 9, 2009 (UTC)

Because there is NO proof he was the FIRST soloer. Sure he soloed it, I have friends who could solo it but didn't post vids of it. That is most likely why...

then wat about first soloer wwith a evence?

Woox16 soloed it with a bronze spear Tangytom123 18:02, December 29, 2010 (UTC)

Aaaaaaand now without food :P

Undead?[edit source]

Is the Corporeal beast undead or not? Black cavalier.png Zenihdrol Tribal top (blue).png 05:11, October 11, 2009 (UTC)

Yes --Music icon.pngXtarn • Talk • Emote button.png 05:12, October 11, 2009 (UTC)

Awesome. Wonder how it died... Black cavalier.png Zenihdrol Tribal top (blue).png 13:26, October 17, 2009 (UTC)

Well it has a paranormal ego, known as the Spirit Beast known as the third strongest monster in the game, so it is definitley undead.

It's not undead you geniuses, It isn't affected by a salve amulet.

Ohmygosh[edit source]

PUPPY HeartEnigma 18:13, October 22, 2009 (UTC)

Claws of Guthix?[edit source]

Would Claws of Guthix be a cheap alternative to Statius' Warhammer? It does reduce defense. Could someone test this and see how ell it works? Mage24365 21:59, December 2, 2009 (UTC)

Hmm... I don't think so... because the beast has a very high defense against magic attacks. :S Makxtrl Talk 22:00, December 2, 2009 (UTC)

Undead[edit source]

If it is undead, then is it weak to Crumble Undead??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? --Compdude123 01:51, December 6, 2009 (UTC)

Well of course it is undead in fact its paranormal entity, the Spirit Beast looks like the Corporeal One so its proof that its undead.

the Corporal Beast is the opposite of the Spirit Beast, and is thus alive. Note the corporal means alive. Thunder9092 17:10, April 26, 2010 (UTC)

Name pronounciation[edit source]

Random fact and possibly irrelevant, but I always thought it was pronounced CorpoRAL beast, because I never noticed the E that makes it the CorpoREAL beast Black cavalier.png Zenihdrol Tribal top (blue).png 11:25, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

It's a common mistake that people don't know the proper name for it. I've even heard two people discussing how high level a hypotetical General Beast would be lol. It's Cor Por E al. --Gold ore.png Mercifull UK serv.svg (Talk) 11:57, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

Ranged Max Hit[edit source]

The table at the top right says its max is 55 w/ ranged. However, the attacks say that its attacks are only melee and magic. Which one is correct? Mage24365 02:54, December 26, 2009 (UTC)

it attack with melee and mage(and a special attack)many pages say some monsters attack with range,melee and mage.while they have a special attack. 09:10, September 21, 2010 (UTC)

Strong but is it Large?[edit source]

Sure the corporeal beast is the strongest one but which monster is the tallest? Im pretty sure that that the corporeal beast isnt the largest at all.

Drop Rates?[edit source]

The article gives some drop rates on the sigils, I.E. 1/4500 for elysian yet 1/2250 for divine. Where did these numbers come from; any citations please? Mtr374 08:25, January 23, 2010 (UTC)

Okay, so it has been confirmed sigils are 1/450, and that spectral is 40% of the time, arcane is 30%, divine is 20%, and elysian is 10%. So let's say you hypothetically killed 4500 corporeal beasts. You would get roughly 10 sigils. Roughly-4 would be spectral, 3 would be arcane, 2 would be divine, and 1 would be elysian. 4/4500=1125 meaning 1/1125=spectral. 3/4500=1500 meaning 1/1500=arcane. 2/4500=2250 meaning 1/2250=divine. 1/4500=4500 meaning 1/4500=elysian. It's kind of weird to think about because you would be looking for numbers closer to 450, but these are roughly the drop rates, as far as we know, based off how many sigils we have seen so far. Edit: I have changed the drops rates to the ones I calculated here-because saying all sigils is 1/450 means you have a rough chance of getting 1 of each sigil in 450 kills, or one sigil (of any type) every 112.5 kills (which I think we all know is false). --HaloTalk 04:22, February 16, 2010 (UTC)

Corporeal Beast versus Nomad[edit source]

Who would win assuming nomad's max would be 98 and not 1999.Guthix1110 21:21, January 22, 2010 (UTC)

Corporeal beast Twig Talk 772kZGs.png 21:33, January 22, 2010 (UTC)

Think about it, nomad has mines which do 45 dmg each, nuke att which does 45 and the 98 dmg on corp. Only 500 less life plus he makes doppelgangers. Nomad would kick his ass.

Probably nomad would win, especially if he was being controlled by and actual person, who would use his special attack to get him down to 1 LP, then just hit him once. Technically, Nomad can kill almost anything that way, the only reason players can kill him is that they can regain health.

What the hell....[edit source]

Why does it say you cannot hit over 25 without a spear. That is definitly false, with vestas longsword I hit a 42...

I guess by spears they actually mean stab attacks. Since stab is pretty much used only by spear-users then they probably won't expect someone to be stabbing with other weapons.Moneypony 03:48, February 28, 2010 (UTC)

The MOST effective way[edit source]

They say that luring is not effective and say to have a free for all with 8-24 players.....Thats great but it is Not the most effective way as they suggest, this is the most effective way:

Though this is a fine method with a large team, people with fairly good teams of 4-8 should lure the beast to either side of the entrance. The lurer then stands outside while the rest of the team surrounds the beast making it unable to move around. If there is one ranger they stand in the beast's one blindspot around the last corner from the entrance. They attack the beast until it turns to them, then they stand in the safespot. The rest of the team should use black dragonhide and helm of neitiznot as well as the Adrouge achievments cloak 3. This enables them to have good magic defense with minimum loss if they die. The cape is used to teleporting to the Adrouge monastary to recharge prayer between kills. All of the meleers should use Zamorakian spears for the stab offense and rangers should use ruby bolts (e). Meleers protect melee at all times and turn on piety or turmoil, rangers protect magic and use eagles eye. High level meleers who wish to risk it can use soul split when the beast is not attack them. With this settup you can do maximum damage to the beast as well as forcing him to turn to attack each player in much the same way you can kill the King Black Dragon effectivelly. Each player should use stat boosting potions and meleers should bring a magic short bow with rune arrows equiped to deal with the dark core without moving.

I added it but it may be deleted. Try it out for yourself before being opinionated about freeforalls which really do suck at this boss monster, no matter how effective at goblins -.o

Onyx drop?[edit source]

Since when did they remove this?...? --HaloTalk 14:58, February 18, 2010 (UTC)

Did they? It's an annoying issue on the Onyx page in the part where it says how to obtain it, "it can be recieved as a drop from the Corpreal Beast" keeps getting added and deleted.Yodimon 18:29, April 13, 2010 (UTC)

onyx is a drop from him.if anyone want to prove other thingy let him solo him.

All we can assume is that the Onyx cannot be obtained from the Corporeal Beast. When someone gets an Onyx drop from it, then I may add it to the table (Assuming someone else doesn't beat me to it)I completed every Quest so far! Sir Fairfang Woot! 99 Magic! 03:24, January 22, 2011 (UTC)

DR of Sigils.[edit source]

Out of curiosity, shouldn't divine be 10% and ele be 20%? I think they are backwards, but I am not sure. User:Logician

First, you should learn how to sign talk pages, if you need help I can help you. Just leave me a message on User talk:Haloolah123. Second, to answer your question: It is not based off how much each is worth, it is based off how common they appear from drop logs. HaloTalk 23:26, March 9, 2010 (UTC)

Well, I know that its not based off GE price, but 1.) Divine is mathematically better compared to Ely, and 2.) I have seen Of the God's drop list from thousands of CB kills, and according to that, divine is less common then ely. ~~Logician

Tztok-Jad vs. Corporeal Beast[edit source]

I've seen people talking about this idea for a while. Who do you think would win? Personally, I'm totally in favor of the Corpreal Beast. 'Jad may hit higher, but he only has about 2500 LP. The Beast has 20000 LP, and very good defence as well. Even if 'Jad hit his max every time, he would take 21 hits to kill the Beast. If the Beast hit his max every time (somewhere around 600, I think) 'Jad would be dead in 5 hits.

Yodimon 23:48, May 19, 2010 (UTC)

About the corp beast being only weak to "Spears"[edit source]

Shouldn't we change the trivia for CB to "Any non-stab attacks inflicted on the corpreal beast inflict half" instead of "Any non spear attacks inflict half?" I've got friends who report that hally/other stab weps hit full when on stab, and going along with the "What the hell" article further up it would seem that the beast is weak to stab, not spears specificly. 01:14, July 2, 2010 (UTC)

Along this same topic, why aren't the Chaotic Rapier and Chaotic Longsword recommended for melee, while Chaotic Cbow is recommended for Ranged? Wouldn't the CLS and CR be the absolute best weapons to bring? Sorry I don't know how to properly sign my post...

CLS/CR max hit is halved. Jagex stated this somewhere ill look for proof. (insert proof here when found) Defence-icon.png O_o Willis HS Quest map icon.png 06:38, August 30, 2010 (UTC)

An unregistered user, just made quite a lot of assorted changes. I myself, have never gone against the beast, and don't know enough to justify whether these changes were valid. If someone with mor more CB knowledge could check to make sure that wasn't a false info edit or something...

I was at Corp earlier and I hit 400s with Dragon Halberd, so I think Spear-like weapons don't have damage reduction either I've also tried Rapier and never seen anything over a 250-300.

Mystic Robe Top (Blue)[edit source]

I received this drop, and it is not on the drop table. Check "Meta Knight" adventurers log if you don't believe me. I don't know how to add to the template, so if someone could do this that would be good.

Yeah, I noticed someone deleted that entry not too long ago. I'll re-add it. For future reference, you can try to construct it using the other drop entries, or go to the page Template:DropsLine.Finally, a use for the crown.arioTalkHSAdv.

Confirmation on drops[edit source]

I've got doubts concerning the drops. I've had much experience at fighting this beast (Lootshare, some FFA and many solos). Please verify:

  • Crystal key
  • Starved ancient effigies (solo / FFA only)
  • Shield left half
  • Dragon spear
  • Clue scrolls (solo / FFA only):
    After the Ring of Wealth update, I got a Elite clue scroll at solo #162. My Ring of wealth glowed twice. Can anyone confirm whether this behavior occur always or sometimes?
    I've got three Elite Clue scrolls from soloing Corporeal beast. However, I've never seen a hard clue scroll. Can anyone confirm the if Hard clue scrolls are dropped?

I received a coins drop of 44374. This does not fall under any of the listed drops on the page. 06:55, September 6, 2014 (UTC) (User:Am643602)

Why Mithril Crossbows?[edit source]

Crossbow class has no effect on ranged strength, only ranged accuracy.

Using a higher crossbow, like rune, should increase the chance of stunning without increasing the chance of killing it. The only possible justification for using mithril is if the emerald (e) can stun when the shot actually misses. If this is not the case, this should be changed to Rune/Chaotic.

Anyone can clarify? 08:45, June 28, 2011 (UTC)

I don't think it can cause poison on a miss, only argument I can think in favour of a mithril crossbow is not wanting to risk a higher leveled crossbow, but this would only really hold true for chaotic since rune crossbows aren't exactly valuable, considering you're already at a level where you fight the corporeal beast. Talk to meTHARKONMy adventurer's log 15:48, June 28, 2011 (UTC)

Stunning does not require dealing damage; It is possible to stun the core while hitting zero. A low ranged accuracy is desirable, to avoid one-hitting the dark core. See also User:Mugger759 for a detailled Corporeal beast guide.Wizard hat (g).pngMugger759 Talk Contribs 21:36, June 28, 2011 (UTC)
Oh, right, accuracy not only affects the chance of hitting, but also the chance of hitting high. Just read about poison some more, and it does not require damage, although there may be difference between a miss and a hit that just doesn't do damage. The reason for emerald bolts is probably because they are more poisonous than for example bronze bolts (p++) while only 1/5th of the price.

Magic damage not reduced[edit source]

So I went to corp with a polypore staff today, and despite being a lot less accurate than my friends who were using Zamorakian Spears, I was still hitting reasonably high amounts which you would not expect to see with a 50% damage reduction. When I wasn't splashing, I would commonly hit above 400, and even hit above 500 once. The only other time I've used a polypore staff was on a slayer task with a full slayer helmet where I managed to hit around 650, so I'm inclined to believe that the damage I did was not even reduced by a smaller amount than 50%. I've only used a polypore staff, so I don't know if actual spells are damage reduced, so if anyone has had experience or is prepared to test then it could be useful information.

With the accuracy being a lot less than a spear it's not a good choice, though being 1-handed it allows for a shield, and so may be a viable alternative for a support player (I also had group vengeance and dreadnips), but a crossbow with ruby bolts would probably still be better. Even though this may not be useful information for developing strategies, I still think it's worthwhile to investigate simply for the pursuit of knowledge =) Invisi 16:46, December 12, 2011 (UTC)

Legit Solo?[edit source]

A new youtube video just came out like two days ago of a player soloing the corporeal beast:

It seems legit to me. 04:38, April 27, 2012 (UTC)

Spears[edit source]

Everyone seems adamant that this beast is particularly vulnerable against spears in particular, and the evidence is only that the special attack of the Dark Bow (I think it was) inflicts half as much damage. Who's to say that it's only strong against ranged attacks or special attacks? I know that as a Wiki almost all information is verified quickly in some way, but I see no real evidence that spears are the beast's particular vulnerability, or at least not inhibited in combat. I think someone said a JMod confirmed it? Am I to assume that the wretched page 51 monster ate this valuable piece of information?

Also, I think I saw that a rune crossbow (or some crossbow) on accurate should be used for stunning the core; wouldn't rapid work better to increase the rate of fire and therefore the chances-per-second of it being poisoned, as well as decreasing the chances of the core taking damage or serious damage? 03:57, June 21, 2012 (UTC)

It's not necessarily that he's weak against spears. It's that any non-spear weapon has a 50% damage reduction. I'm sure I've seen a J-mod post somewhere but really it's common knowledge for Corpers. The dark bow simply confirms how much of a damage reduction - it's obvious when you take a non-spear weapon there and try attacking that it doesn't work as it should. Did you try?
Regarding the rune c'bow, I'm not much of a ranger so I don't know how the special attacks work. It would depend on whether the special goes off when you actually make a hit (accurate would be best) or if it goes off randomly when you shoot (rapid would be best). sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 04:57, June 21, 2012 (UTC)
I'm not much of a bosser, but this half-immunity to non-spear weaponry seems so... far-fetched that it's hard for me to believe. I admit I have no personal experience, though. I suppose against such a common enemy, extensive testing with various weapons and weapon styles would have already been conducted. I just thought maybe, since it's such a powerful monster, maybe its defence got in the way of testing and such.
And I do understand the concept that spears are not necessarily its weakness, but when every other weapon will deal far less damage than one specific weapon type, I tend to consider that a weakness.
Thanks for the reply. 09:32, July 28, 2012 (UTC)
Even after the eoc melee 2h weapons (spears) are the only weapons to do full damage to corp. I heard that magic did full damage before, but not anymore. Ranged is also reduced; incendiary shot and unload appear to hit for full damage only because of the sheer number of lifepoints it has. Half of 40% of 95K is still more than 5k, and those 2 abilities are the only things that *might* allow you to use something other than spears and not get barred from teams. So much for balancing the triangle :s 20:55, January 4, 2013 (UTC)

Cash drop[edit source]

Today, while corping, we got a cash drop of 41.000 which is not listed anywhere currently. Just wondering if anyone else ever had this drop. Thanks!

Corp is female[edit source]

On the new infographic about Tuska's size that Jagex released, it confirms that the Corporeal Beast is female. Amascut symbol.svg Amascut Ia Morte 18:35, June 25, 2015 (UTC)

Is there any chance you can post a source link to the Infographic? I've not been able to find it anywhere. Zeifyl (talk) 12:41, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
It should be shown in . IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 13:05, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
That one didn't mention Corp at all. Zeifyl (talk) 14:04, August 5, 2015 (UTC)

Here's the reddit post, but I wouldn't consider it an accurate source since it also calls the Evil Chicken female. --Iiii I I I 15:03, August 5, 2015 (UTC)
Well, the Evil Chicken seems to be female, as it laid an egg you needed in Recipe for Disaster. At least it's not a full-out rooster. So it seems fairly legit to me.Zeifyl (talk) 04:41, September 28, 2015 (UTC)
