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.


The beast fights with magic at long distance, but will also use its horn for melee combat. Because it is weak against crossbow bolts, the player should stay out of melee range and use ranged attacks to exploit its weakness.


Dark beasts are found in two locations: Kuradal's Dungeon and the tunnels leading to the Temple of Light.

  • Kuradal's Dungeon can only be accessed by players who have been given a Slayer assignment of dark beasts by Kuradal. 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 teleport crystal to go directly to the tunnels.
