Table of Contents
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:
