Catacombs of Kourend — The first thing you will notice about the Catacombs is the sheer size of it. The main entrance to the area can be discovered via the courtyard of Kourend Castle, where you can check out the statue of King Rada I. To get here, you should complete the Architectural Alliance mini quest, which will give you Xeric’s talisman. This talisman has an ability known as Xeric’s Heart, which can teleport you straight to the statue. There are other ways of reaching it, however, such as by using a portal chamber or nexus near your house which can be attuned to Kourend Castle.
Also, if you managed to complete the Rum Deal quest, then the Holy Wrench is something that you will want to take with you. The wrench works by adding extra Prayer points for the player when drinking either a prayer potion, a super restore potion or even a Sanfew serum.
You may have come across the likes of the Abyssal Demon or the Jungle Demon on your travels, but some would argue that the blackened powerhouse is more sought after. To kick off the proceedings, we will layout some information that you will need to know going forward.
The Black Demon in Old School RuneScape can be a rather intimidating foe. These monsters can appear to be overwhelming at first, but fear not, as these skill guides will help you on your way to find, and ultimately taking down, one of the most notorious beasts in OSRS. They can be found in several locations which we will discuss, but you will also need to know some of the enemy’s background and what items you will need to find them.
To overcome the Black Demon here, make sure to have an anti-dragon shield equipped to help you make your way passed the (you guessed it right) dragon spears that are located here, and as you did so with the previous dungeon, find a corner spot that is safe enough for you to hit save. Once again, keep out of reach and drop your cannon, and remember to keep your quick prayers and potions handy and you will be good to go!
Once inside, the Black Demon’s room is located just North-East of the dungeon’s main entrance. After reaching the room, turn on your quick prayers, consume your potions, find a safe corner to save it once more. In this case, you can find a respite from enemies around the top of the room to the right. Repeat the same tactic as before, though if you take too long the Black Demons may stop attacking you. This can be fixed by simply leaving the room to the left and coming back in. Once you do this, they should regain their original aggressiveness.
Brimhaven Dungeon — This dungeon can be found south-west of Brimhaven itself, and will require you to pay 875 coins for each time that you choose to enter the underground cave. If you want to pay a one-off fee to the NPC Saniboch however, you can do so by paying 1,000,000 coins for unlimited access, so keep your Runescape Gold in mind. There are also a couple of key things that you will require to enter, such as an axe which requires combat level 10 woodcutting, and a further level of 34 to make your way further into the dungeon. You will also need level 12 Agility to surpass the stepping stones in the dungeon. Otherwise, you could be subjected to damage. Your best bet is to take the southern entrance to the revenant cave, as this will bring you out just next to the Black Demon’s room.
Around the southern central area of the dungeon is where you will find the lair of the Black Demon. If you are opting for the safe-spotting method of taking down the demons, you will want to head to the top-right area of the room, as there are a couple of structures that will make it difficult for you to be hit there. If you prefer a more melee approach, however, simply head to the center of the room, just remember to have potions and quick prayers at the ready and switch auto-retaliate on.
The Black Demon is one of the most feared foes in Old School RuneScape. Learn its background, the items you need to fight it, and where you
