The Corporeal Beast is currently the third strongest boss monster in all of Old School RuneScape.

LocationEdit

The Corporeal Beast can be found in a cave at level 19-20 Wilderness, which is surrounded by hostile Ents and Black unicorns. As the area is frequented by PKers, entering through the Wilderness is not recommended. Instead, use a Games necklace and teleport to the Corporeal Beast. The cave the Corporeal Beast resides in is not part of the Wilderness!

AttacksEdit

The Corporeal Beast has multiple attacks:

  • Melee: Swipes one of its claws at the player for high melee damage.
  • Magic: Has three magic attacks:
    • High Damage: A projectile that looks similar to a wave-like spell that exclusively does high damage.
    • Stat Drain: A smaller projectile that deals a bit less damage than the high damage one but can also drain Magic or Prayer.
    • AoE: An even smaller projectile. When it hits the ground, it splits into 5 smaller projectiles that have an AoE of 3x3.
  • Dark energy core: The Beast can occasionally send out a dark energy core, which flies towards a player. It will then start sapping health and prayer of players next to it in a 3x3 area, with the sapped health going to the Corporeal Beast to recover health.

StrategyEdit

The Corporeal Beast is a powerful foe that should not be underestimated. In addition to its massive health of 2,000, the Beast's carapace-like hide will reduce all non-spear damage by 50% (this includes hastae, even though they are technically re-purposed spears). It's attacks can also deal extremely high damage; and if no players are in the room, the Beast will fully restore all of its health if damaged.

Fighting Corporeal Beast

A pair of players fighting the Corporeal Beast.

When it takes a hit that deals 32 or more damage, there is a 1/8 chance of a Dark energy core appearing in its place. To deal with the core, use a crossbow that can fire Emerald bolts (e); if the special goes off, it will reduce the speed at which the dark energy core can sap players' health and prayer. This requires a person to stay near it though, as failure to do so will result in the core bouncing around and the bolts' effects being removed.

While weak to stab attacks, the Beast has a very high Defence level. A common method to lower its defence is to use Dragon warhammers (the Bandos godsword or Darklight/Arclight can be used instead as cheaper but worse alternatives). After expending your special attack bar, teleport to a designated teammate's house, restore your special energy from the pool, then teleport back to the Beast's lair and resume until enough special attacks have been performed. The Beast does not regenerate any drained stats when no one is in its chamber, so by doing this multiple times, you can drain the Beast's defence levels to extremely low levels to the point where you can have 100% accuracy with high melee stats.

Recommended EquipmentEdit

For teams smaller than 5 people, it is recommended to wear high Magic defence gear like Karil's armour or Black dragonhide armour.
For teams larger than 4 people and masses, its recommended to wear high Strength bonus gear such as Bandos armour or accuracy boosting gear such as Void Knight equipment.

Inventory:

Note: A cost-efficient inventory entails 6 Saradomin brews, 2 Super restores, a Prayer potion, and the rest Sharks instead of 16 brews and 8 restores. Also, an alternate inventory set-up consists of subbing out the brews and restores for 4 prayer potions and sharks for the rest.

Players might also use combo food with sharks such as Cooked karambwans. Using these will increase your DPS as less time is used when eating. They also could save you if Corporeal Beast was about to KO you with Dark energy core.

Using cooked karambwans is not really necessary if there is a team of 4 players or more. It is recommended to use them when you're duoing or soloing Corporeal Beast.
