The dark beast is a Slayer monster that requires 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 dark arrowheads, 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.
- Kuradal's Dungeon can only be accessed by players who have been given a Slayer assignment of dark beasts by Kuradal or Morvran. Like all monsters in that dungeon, the dark beasts here can drop ferocious rings.
- The tunnels leading to the Temple of Light can only be accessed by players who have started Mourning's Ends Part II. Players entering the tunnels from West Ardougne will need a new key, as well as a full set of mourner clothing unless they have completed Plague's End. After starting Within the Light, players can use a crystal teleport seed to go directly to the tunnels.
There are six rolls: one for the sirenic scales, one for the dark bow, one for the ferocious ring, one for charms, one for a triskellion part and another for the remaining drop table items.
