Dark beasts are a slayer monster that require level 90 Slayer to kill. Dark beasts can be found in either the Temple of Light or Kuradal's Dungeon. They are known for their rare drop of the dark bow, and their chance to give Ancient Effigies. They also have a very good drop rate of Blue charms.
At melee distance, the beast will attack with Melee, assuming that the player did not initiate battle. As such, due to their high combat level, it is recommended to use the curse Deflect Melee or the prayer Protect from Melee. If you stray from melee distance, the beast will use Magic attacks. The beast will also use magic-based attacks if the player does not allow for it to attack first. As the beast is ALWAYS aggressive, players can avoid ever being hit by magic attacks simply by allowing the beast to make the first attack.
To hunt dark beasts, you have to have level 90 Slayer and either:
- Access to Kuradal's Dungeon (requires Level 110 Combat and 75 Slayer) and an incomplete task of dark beasts assigned by Kuradal
- Access to the Mourner's Headquarters (you must complete Mourning's Ends Part II) and full Mourner's Gear (mask, top, trousers, boots, gloves and cloak), or gain the option to teleport to the headquarters using Elf teleport crystals after Within the Light.
For killing dark beasts, there is a chance that some of the items below will be dropped.
|1||N/A||This is a guaranteed drop.|
|0.1||0.99||Up to a 1 in 10 chance|

|0.001||0.0099||Up to a 1 in 1,000 chance|
|0.0001||0.00099||Up to a 1 in 10,000 chance|
|-||-||Greater than a 1 in 10,000 chance
(Usually a 1 in 100,000 or a 1 in 1,000,000)
& The chance of this item dropping is increased slightly with a ring of wealth equipped.
