OSRS Boss overview and ultimate Tier List

The best thing about OSRS is bossing. Fighting a new boss and getting some great loot out of it is by far the activity we enjoy the most in this Medieval clicking generator. While our RNG is never quite what we want it to be, it is almost always fun to solo a boss, duo up with a partner, or embark on a PVM trip with your clan.

Engaging in boss battles on OSRS isn’t just a ton of fun, it’s also one of the most consistent money-making activities. This overview delves into the most captivating bosses RuneScape has to offer and ranks them on a tier list.

OSRS Bosses tier list ranked

Unfortunately, Tiermaker does not have all the bosses, so we have made this amazingly designed Tier List table. 

Our Old School Runescape Boss Tier List criteria 

We employ two distinct criteria for our OSRS Boss Tier list: fun and drops. We consider the requirements, difficulty, and whether you can tackle them solo, with a partner, or in a group.


Playing OSRS in your late 20s should be enjoyable. The game’s enduring appeal lies in its balance between AFK skilling and the pursuit of high-level stats, which demands substantial time investment. The effort required to meet the boss-fighting prerequisites must ultimately yield a rewarding experience. We seek engaging boss mechanics, not monotonous battles or protracted encounters. Fun is paramount in bossing.


Another pivotal factor for our Tier list is the loot provided by the bosses. While the Giant Mole, in our opinion, can be an enjoyable adversary, its lackluster drops discourage further engagements once the pet is obtained. While we don’t advocate that every boss yields at least 10m gp/h, bosses with unremarkable drops like yew logs won’t score highly and won’t achieve S tier.

What types of OSRS Bosses are there? 

Regular bosses

A ‘regular’ boss is one that doesn’t demand special requirements. Examples include the God Wars Dungeon bosses, King Black Dragon (KBD), and the Giant Mole. While high agility or combat levels might be needed at times, these bosses aren’t locked behind a slayer task and generally don’t appear in instances.

Slayer bosses 

Slayer bosses in OSRS are formidable monsters accessible when you possess both the required Slayer level and a task related to that boss. These bosses are typically mightier variants of regular slayer monsters, offering greater XP and superior loot. They often have unique drops exclusive to them.

Mini-game Skilling bosses

Skilling bosses can be defeated only through skill-based methods. Notable examples are Wintertod, tackled with firemaking skills, and Tempoross, a fishing boss. These bosses can be confronted at level 3 combat. Mini-game bosses like the Barrows brothers are also part of OSRS, with Barrows being technically categorized as a mini-game in both OSRS and RS3.

Quest bosses

A Quest boss is a monster you have to fight and kill during a quest. A famous example of a pQuest bosses are monsters you must fight and defeat during quests. A prominent example of a formidable quest boss is Vanstrom Klause, Count Draynor (yes, he’s a boss) from “Vampire Slayer,” and Elvarg from “Dragon Slayer” are also well-known instances of such adversaries. Numerous quest bosses can be confronted again in the Nightmare Zone in Yanille; however, they do not yield substantial drops. Quest bosses are typically fought solo. There are also bosses unlocked post-quests, like Vorkath and the Rabbit boss.

Instanced Bosses

Instanced bosses are generated in instances, exclusive areas accessible only to you. An exemplary instance boss is Skotizo. Accessible only through a totem in the Kourend Catacombs, Skotizo is one such boss. Another instance boss is the Mimic, also categorized as a sporadic boss.

In fact, all two F2P bosses are instanced. The major advantage of instanced bosses lies in the exclusive domain they offer, ensuring you won’t be intruded upon by better-equipped teams or players.


Obor, the hill giant boss, is the primary repeatable F2P boss. To access Obor, you must first eliminate regular hill giants and acquire a giant key drop. The boss’s lair is accessible through a specific door in the Edgeville Dungeon. Though a breeze for members, Obor presents a moderate challenge for F2P players at medium levels due to comparatively weaker gear. Thus, it’s recommended to confront him only at around level 70 combat and 40 prayer in F2P.

  • Location: Southern part Edgevill Dungeon
  • Combat level: 106
  • Requirement: Giant Key
  • Best drops: Hill giant club and various rune items
  • Tier: C tier


The other boss available to members alongside Obor is Bryophyta, the Moss Giantess. Accessible through a Mossy key drop obtainable from Moss Giants, Bryophyta’s essence is worth over 5m, providing a lucrative means to secure a bond. At 128 combat, Bryophyta is mightier than Obor, making her the most potent F2P boss in OSRS.

  • Location: Varrock 
  • Combat level: 128
  • Requirement: Have a mossy key
  • Best drops: Bryophyta’s essence and various rune drops. 
  • GP an hour: 1m
  • Tier: B tier


Located in the Kourend Catacombs, Skotizo requires a totem for access, obtained by slaying catacomb monsters, with three pieces required to assemble one. Known for consistent good drops, Skotizo guarantees a hard clue scroll and occasionally an elite clue.

  • Location: Center of the Catacomb of Kourend
  • Combat level: 321
  • Requirement: A Dark totem
  • Best drops: Jar of darkness, Dark Claw, hard clue. 
  • GP an hour: up to 5m if you have the totems
  • Tier: A tier

Barrows Brothers

Among the oldest OSRS bosses are the Barrows Brothers, who revolutionized the game’s meta by introducing the chance of obtaining Barrows armor from the chests they guard. They consistently drop death, chaos, and blood runes and hold a considerable chance of yielding an elite clue.

  • Location: Barrows grave hills
  • Combat level: up to 115
  • Requirement: None
  • Best drops: Barrows armor
  • GP an hour: 1m
  • Tier: C tier


Situated in the Wilderness, Callisto is susceptible to player attacks during the encounter. As a multi-combat zone, players can fight Callisto in a group, but this exposes them to multiple PKers. The Verrac outfit is recommended to counter Callisto’s defense bonuses. Callisto wields melee and magic attacks.

  • Location: Wilderness, South of Demonic ruins
  • Combat level: 470
  • Requirement: None
  • Best drops: Tyrannical Ring and Dragon Pickaxe. 
  • GP an hour: 2.5m
  • Tier: B tier
OSRS boss tier list callisto


Vet’ion, another wilderness boss, features two stages and can summon skeleton hellhounds. With both melee and magic attacks, Vet’ion’s defense bonuses are lower than Callisto’s. Vet’ion drops the best prayer ring and the dragon pickaxe.

Vet’ion drops the best prayer ring in the game and also drops the dragon pickaxe. 

  • Location: Wilderness North of the Boneyard
  • Combat level: 454
  • Requirement: None
  • Best drops: Ring of the Gods and Dragon pickaxe. 
  • GP an hour:
  • Tier: A


The Kraken is a Slayer monster that requires level 87 Slayer to engage, and you must be on a Kraken Slayer task. They are quite easy to battle and can even be AFK’ed for a while if your stats are high enough or you use blood burst, blitz, or barrage spells. Players often skip them due to their relatively slow GP per hour rate and the extended time it takes to defeat them. You can pay 25k coins to access a private instanced area.

  • Location: Kraken Cove
  • Combat level: 291
  • Requirement: 87 slayer and a slayer task
  • Best drops: Kraken tentacle, the trident of the seas, and Kraken pet
  • GP an hour:
  • Tier: C

Abyssal Sire

I personally dislike this boss, but the Abyssal Sire does offer decent drops. Our co-writer, Huang, strangely enjoys the mechanics for some reason, though I suspect this is one of the less popular bosses to tackle in OSRS.

The Abyssal Sire is a slayer boss and a more formidable variant of the abyssal demon. It’s a pretty potent monster, but like most slayer bosses, you can defeat multiple in a single trip. The Abyssal Sire employs melee attacks.

  • Location: Abyssal Nexus
  • Combat level: 350
  • Requirement: 85 slayer and a slayer task
  • Best drops: Abyssal Pet, Unsired, which can be used to get an abyssal bludgeon
  • GP an hour:
  • Tier:

Chaos Elemental 

The Chaos Elemental is one of the oldest OSRS bosses. You can encounter it deep in the Wilderness, so avoid bringing items you’re not willing to lose. While its drops are nothing extraordinary, there’s a relatively high chance of obtaining the pet chaos elemental. Defeating this monster is one of the fastest ways to achieve this pet. The Chaos Elemental employs magic, ranged, and melee attacks, and it’s the sole OSRS creature that drops the dragon 2H sword.

  • Location: West of the Rogues Castle
  • Combat level: 305
  • Requirement: None
  • Best drops: Dragon pickaxe and Chaos elemental pet
  • GP an hour:
  • Tier:

Alchemical Hydra

Undoubtedly one of the best monsters to receive as a slayer task is the (alchemical) Hydra. Unfortunately, these creatures require a massive 95 Slayer level to face. However, the rewards more than justify the requirement, and the Alchemical Hydra provides an enjoyable fight. With four distinct stages, the Hydra can easily deal substantial damage if you’re not attentive. Learning the rotations is relatively simple, enabling you to fight numerous Hydras in one trip.

The sole downside is that completing a single task often spans multiple days. While regular Hydras can also be faced, we believe it’s a waste of your slayer task, as the regular Hydras offer some of the game’s best profits.

  • Location: Karuulm Slayer Dungeon
  • Combat level: 426
  • Requirement: 95 slayer and a slayer task
  • Best drops: Hydra leather, Hydra’s claw, Hydra pet
  • GP an hour: 4m
  • Tier: S


Cerberus is the one slayer boss that every Ironman aspires to defeat. Boasting numerous valuable drops, Cerberus is a fantastic source of both combat and slayer experience. To challenge Cerberus, you must have a slayer task; however, since hellhounds are often assigned and Cerberus counts as one, this requirement is generally met.

Cerberus features several mechanics that can pose challenges for those new to bossing. Nevertheless, with decent gear, defeating Cerberus multiple times in a single trip is quite feasible. Possessing high agility is recommended due to the distant teleport location, unless you have the specific teleport. Cerberus utilizes melee, ranged, and magic attacks.

  • Location: Cerberus Lair
  • Combat level: 318
  • Requirement: 91 slayer and slayer task
  • Best drops: Primordial crystal, Pegasian crystal, eternal crystal, and Hellpuppy. 
  • GP an hour: 2.2m
  • Tier: A

Grotesque guardians

The Grotesque Guardians comprise two monsters, Dusk and Dawn, who collaborate as a team against you. Although not highly formidable, they are the first slayer-exclusive bosses you’ll encounter. Requiring a slayer level of 75, they are stronger versions of gargoyles.

Dusk and Dawn employ all three combat styles: melee, ranged, and magic. Generally, they are not worth the effort due to their subpar drops and extended combat duration. However, the Grotesque Guardians offer a valuable learning experience for OSRS bossing.

  • Location: Slayer tower, top floor
  • Combat level: Dusk is combat 248, and Dawn is combat 228
  • Requirement: 75 slayer, access to the roof, and slayer task
  • Best drops: Granite gloves, Granite ring, Granite hammer, Black tourmaline core
  • GP an hour: 750k
  • Tier: D

Giant Mole 

The Giant Mole is one of the least challenging bosses in OSRS, located beneath Falador Park. Fighting the Giant Mole is most effective after completing the Falador Hard Diaries, which counter its annoying mechanic of evading after being struck. The Falador Shield conveniently provides an arrow indicator on your map, revealing the Giant Mole’s reappearance point after it flees. The Giant Mole uses melee attacks.

  • Location: Under Falador Park
  • Combat level: 230
  • Requirement: Use a Spade to dig 
  • Best drops: Mole skin, Mole claw, pet mole 
  • GP an hour: 600k
  • Tier: D

King Black Dragon

The King Black Dragon (KBD) is one of my favorite bosses to engage with once my combat skills are sufficiently high. Iconic and nostalgic, the KBD is relatively simple to defeat but yields mediocre drops. Since the KBD’s lair is situated in the wilderness, exercise caution and avoid bringing valuables you’re unwilling to lose.

The KBD is an excellent goal for new accounts or players seeking co-op bossing. Its enjoyable nature earns it a high tier; however, its drops aren’t notably remarkable, and the valuable ones are quite rare.

  • Location: His lair in the deep wilderness
  • Combat level: 276
  • Requirement: None
  • Best drops: Dragon pickaxe, Pet, and KBD head. 
  • GP an hour: 800k
  • Tier: A

Dagannoth Rex

At OSRS Boss, we have a soft spot for the Dagannoth Kings. They offer excellent combat training and lucrative profits with relatively low requirements.

Dagannoth Rex, the melee-focused Dagannoth King, is the easiest to combat. Safespotting is viable, allowing for over 30 kills in one trip even at lower levels. Notably, Dagannoth Rex drops one of the most coveted items in the game, the Berserker ring.

  • Location: Waterbirth Island Dungeon
  • Combat level: 303
  • Requirement: Another player or pet rock and a rune thrownaxe
  • Best drops: Berserkers ring and Pet
  • GP an hour: 1.2m
  • Tier: A
dagannoth rex osrs boss

Dagannoth Supreme

Dagannoth Supreme presents a greater challenge due to its cave location. You’ll face attacks from both Dagannoth Supreme (ranged) and Dagannoth Prime (magic). Opting for a group approach or nearly maxed combat is advisable to tackle this Dagannoth King. Defeating Dagannoth Supreme yields the archer’s ring, a valuable item.

The most effective means of defeating Dagannoth Supreme is through tribriding at a high combat level. Nevertheless, it’s also enjoyable to tackle this boss in a group.

  • Location: Waterbirth Island Dungeon
  • Combat level: 303
  • Requirement: Another player or pet rock and a rune thrownaxe
  • Best drops: Archers ring and Pet
  • GP an hour: 1.5m
  • Tier: A

Dagannoth Prime

Dagannoth Prime serves as the magic-focused member of the trio. When uncertain, prioritize praying against magic, as Dagannoth Prime’s attacks can hit 60 and are highly accurate. Unfortunately, despite its potent attacks, its drops are relatively lackluster. Despite receiving a +6 boost, the seer’s ring’s value remains underwhelming. Dagannoth Prime is most vulnerable to ranged attacks among the Dagannoth Kings.

  • Location: Waterbirth Island Dungeon
  • Combat level: 303
  • Requirement: Another player or pet rock and a rune thrownaxe
  • Best drops: Seers ring and Pet
  • GP an hour: 700k
  • Tier: A


Sarachnis is a recent addition to OSRS, a massive spider monster found in the Forthos Dungeon. Engaging Sarachnis in a team of two or more is enjoyable for players under level 100 combat.

For higher-level players, Sarachnis provides an excellent source of elite clue scrolls, dropping them at a rate of 1 in 60. Many consider this the fastest method to obtain these scrolls. The boss’s mechanics are easy to learn, and the grubby key enables extended trips. Sarachnis is an ideal boss for learning the ropes.

  • Location: Forthos Dungeon
  • Combat level: 318
  • Requirement: No requirement
  • Best drops: Sarachnis cudgel, Giant egg sac, Pet, elite, and hard clue scrolls. 
  • GP an hour: 1.2m
  • Tier: B

Kalphite Queen

The Kalphite Queen, once almost invincible, is one of the oldest OSRS monsters. Now, the Kalphite Queen is relatively easy to defeat, even solo. With two phases and the ability to use overhead prayers, the Kalphite Queen employs all three combat styles: melee, ranged, and magic.

Regrettably, despite receiving multiple drop table buffs, the drops remain nostalgically modest. Players generally engage the Kalphite Queen for elite diaries, KQ heads, or the pet.

  • Location: Kalphite Lair
  • Combat level: 255 (both phases) 
  • Requirement: two ropes or done the hard desert diary 
  • Best drops: Dragon chainbody, pet, KQ heads
  • GP an hour:
  • Tier:


Zulrah revolutionized the OSRS meta and played a role in stabilizing a certain South American country’s economy. Even after numerous drop table nerfs, Zulrah remains a beloved and profitable activity.

Zulrah comes with a steep learning curve. If you’re new to OSRS boss fights, expect a challenging experience and several trips back to Lumbridge. With distinct phases, high-hitting attacks, and a mix of melee, ranged, and magic, Zulrah demands your attention. Despite its lucrative drop table, Zulrah’s entry requirements are relatively low.

  • Location: Zul-Andra
  • Combat level: 725
  • Requirement: Completion of Regicide Quest
  • Best drops: Tanzanite fang, Magic fang, Serpentine visage, and pet. 
  • GP an hour:
  • Tier:

K’ril Tsutsaroth

K’ril Tsutsaroth, also known as the Zammy boss, is one of the God Wars Dungeon’s five bosses. As a greater demon, you can face the Zamorakian general during a demon slayer task. Additionally, an Arclight can be used to boost your damage, as it affects demons.

K’ril Tsutsaroth’s mechanics make him one of the stronger GWD bosses. However, soloing multiple kills per trip is challenging. Consequently, it is recommended to duo this OSRS boss.

  • Location: Godwars Dungeon
  • Combat level: 650
  • Requirement: 70 attack
  • Best drops: Zamorakian spear, staff of the dead, Zamorakian hilt, pet
  • GP an hour: 1.7m
  • Tier: B

General Graardor

General Graardor, also known as Bandos, is one of GWD’s easiest bosses. In a group with a knowledgeable tank, defeating General Graardor is straightforward. At higher levels, soloing Bandos becomes feasible. Accessing Graardor is convenient, requiring only 40 KC and 70 Strength.

Remember to carry a hammer to enter his room. Alternatively, a Dragon Warhammer can serve as a substitute hammer.

  • Location: God Wars Dungeon
  • Combat level: 624
  • Requirement: 70 strength
  • Best drops: Bandos Chestplate, Bandos Tassets, Bandos boots, Bandos hilt and a pet. 
  • GP an hour: 1.8m
  • Tier: B

Commander Zilyana

Another popular God Wars Dungeon boss that is easily manageable solo is Commander Zilyana. Unfortunately, taking on this Saradomin boss requires 70 agility and two ropes for your initial visit to her lair. Specifically, the 70 agility requirement can be quite demanding for some, resulting in this boss being among the least frequently challenged in GWD.

Once you grasp the mechanics of soloing Commander Zilyana and possess optimal gear like a twisted bow, achieving up to 30 kills per trip becomes feasible. Moreover, her substantial drops make her a worthwhile pursuit for ironmen.

  • Location: God Wars Dungeon
  • Combat level: 596
  • Requirement: 70 agility and two ropes
  • Best drops: Saradomin sword, Saradomin hilt, Armadyl crossbow, a pet. 
  • GP an hour:
  • Tier:


Vorkath is accessible after completing the Dragon Slayer II quest and is renowned for its profitability. Once you understand its mechanics, Vorkath is relatively straightforward to defeat. Notably, Vorkath is also the most mobile-friendly OSRS boss.

However, Vorkath’s allure diminishes due to its quest prerequisites and its somewhat monotonous nature. Despite this, beware of Vorkath’s high combat level, as it can eliminate you swiftly. Vorkath utilizes melee (at close range), magic, ranged, and dragonfire attacks.

Vorkath’s drops generally outshine Zulrah’s. Regrettably, the ubiquity of Vorkath as a moneymaker has led to a decline in the value of its unique drops.

  • Location: Ungael
  • Combat level: 732
  • Requirement: Complete Dragon Slayer II
  • Best drops: Skeletal visage, Vorkath’s head, and pet. 
  • GP an hour:
  • Tier:

Corporeal Beast

Once the mightiest monster in Runescape, the Corporeal Beast remains a formidable adversary in OSRS, even with the advent of modern strategies and equipment.

The Corporeal Beast boasts some of the most valuable drops in the game. It’s easily accessible using the games necklace, and an instanced area is available for exclusive encounters. Exercise caution, as the Corporeal Beast can potentially eliminate you in a single blow. The boss abstains from ranged attacks but relies on melee and magic.

  • Location: The Corporeal Beast’s lair
  • Combat level: 785
  • Requirement: None
  • Best drops: Arcane Sigil, Elysian Sigil, Spectral sigil, pet. 
  • GP an hour: 2m
  • Tier: B

The Nightmare

The Nightmare, a recent OSRS-exclusive boss, introduces unique mechanics. Remarkably, it can be tackled solo despite its 814 combat level. Sporting some of the game’s premier drops, The Nightmare ranks among the top GP per hour earners alongside the Theater of Blood and Nex.

The Nightmare provides an engaging fight with rare yet substantial rewards. This design philosophy fosters intermittent windfalls rather than a consistent revenue stream.

  • Location: Sisterhood Sanctuary (Slepe)
  • Combat level: 814
  • Requirement: Complete Priest in Peril
  • Best drops: Inquisitor’s great helm, plateskirt, hauberk, mace, nightmare staff, Eldritch orb, Harmonised orb, Volatile orb, and pet. 
  • GP an hour:
  • Tier:


Nex, the latest addition to OSRS, stands as the fifth and final boss of the God Wars Dungeon. As a devotee of the ancient god Zaros, Nex thrives in group encounters and presents a formidable challenge for solo players.

Nex is accompanied by four potent bodyguards (Fumus, Umbra, Cruor, and Glacies), and her potent attacks pose a considerable threat even to maxed combat players without proper gear or prayer management. Regrettably, Nex’s offerings include the best melee gear in the game, Torva.

Nex provides nostalgic enjoyment, significant drops, and a well-deserved S-tier rating.

  • Location: God Wars Dungeon
  • Combat level: 1001
  • Requirement: Do the frozen door mini-quest and have defeated Dad. 
  • Best drops: Zaryte Vambraces, Nihil Horn, Torva full helm, Torva Platebody, Torva platelegs, Godsword hilt, and a pet.
  • GP an hour:
  • Tier: S

OSRS Demi-bosses

Demi-bosses fall between regular monsters and true bosses in terms of potency. While more formidable than typical creatures, they lack the scale to be considered full-fledged bosses. Although the classification of OSRS Demi-bosses is somewhat subjective, consensus often revolves around the following entities.

Chaos fanatic

The Chaos Fanatic is distinct for its drops, including the Chaos Elemental pet. Its proximity to the wilderness edge contributes to its reputation as a more accessible target for the pet.

The Chaos Fanatic employs melee and magic attacks, bolstered by a high-damage special attack. Despite generally unremarkable drops, its unique offerings stand out. Consequently, the Chaos Fanatic receives an E-tier ranking.

  • Location: West of the Lava Maze
  • Combat level: 202
  • Requirement: None
  • Best drops: Malediction shard 1, Odium Shard 1, chaos elemental pet.
  • GP an hour:
  • Tier: E

Crazy Archaeologist

The Crazy Archaeologist can be found in the wilderness ruins around level 16 wild. He is straightforward to defeat with ranging. However, if you have 40 prayer to protect melee, the Crazy Archaeologist walks in the park. 

Just like the Chaos Fanatic, the Crazy Archeologist has a pretty strong – but quickly avoidable – special attack. Unfortunately, he does not have any good drops besides the unique ones. So we will put the Crazy Archaeologist in the E tier too. 

  • Location: Ruins south of the Forgotten cemetery
  • Combat level: 204
  • Requirement: None
  • Best drops: Malediction shard 2, Odium shard 2. 
  • GP an hour:
  • Tier:


Scorpia is another wilderness demi boss and the final piece of the puzzle if you want to collect all Malediction and Odium shards. You can find Scorpia in the deep wild in a cavern beneath the Scorpion Pit. 

The scorpion pit is multi combat and in level 50 wild. The odds are very high. You can be PKed here. While the drops are worth more than the Crazy Archaeologist and Chaos fanatics, Scorpia is much harder to grind and just not very fun. Being attacked by a clan and being killed quickly is also a significant drawback. Scorpia is an F tier OSRS boss for us. 

  • Location: Cavern beneath the Scorpion pit
  • Combat level: 225
  • Requirement: None
  • Best drops: Malediction Shard 3, Odium shard three, and a pet. 
  • GP an hour:
  • Tier: F

Chambers of Xeric

The Chambers of Xeric, also called CoX, is different from regular bosses. CoX is a raid. Meaning you need to fight multiple bosses in order to get a reward. CoX is one of the best ways to make money in OSRS and can be done in huge groups of people (up to 100) \ but also in a small group and even solo. 

You do not get all the bosses in one raid, and they appear in random order. The exception is the final boss, Great Olm, and you will always have this boss as your final boss. 

Ice Demon

The ice demon is one of the easiest to defeat bosses in CoX. You need to keep fire burning and attack it with fire-based spells. Killing the Ice Demons takes just a few minutes. He does not drop any loot besides in-raid items. 


The Muttadiles are two bosses encountered in the Chambers of Xeric. They resemble massive crocodiles and appear in pairs of two. They can be quite challenging if their mechanics are unfamiliar. The optimal approach to facing them involves utilizing ranged and/or magic attacks and immobilizing them with an ice barrage.

Lizardman Shamans

Lizardman Shamans in the Chambers of Xeric share similarities with their counterparts outside. Consequently, they inflict substantial poison damage if you lack appropriate gear to mitigate their attacks. They also employ the same jump attacks seen with regular Lizardman Shamans. Unfortunately, the Lizardman Shamans within the Chamber of Xeric do not drop the Dragon Warhammer or any other item from their typical loot table.


Tekton ranks as one of the most formidable bosses in CoX. To effectively combat Tekton, understanding the intricate mechanics of the boss is essential. His attacks pack a powerful punch and are multifaceted, making it unwise to underestimate him, even with high combat levels.

Differing from other bosses on this list, Tekton boasts a valuable drop. Regrettably, the chances of obtaining an uncut onyx from him are quite slim.

Vasa Nistirio

Vasa Nistirio presents an array of captivating mechanics. Nonetheless, defeating the boss becomes straightforward when armed with knowledge and equipped with an effective stabbing weapon like the Zamorakian Hasta. Dispatching Vasa Nistrio can take under 5 minutes, although his loot lacks the value seen with Tekton.


Vespula, a colossal wasp boss within the Chambers of Xeric, introduces intriguing mechanics. However, both Vespula and her portals can be swiftly neutralized using ranged attacks, particularly with a twisted bow. Consequently, mastering this boss requires practice, enabling effective elimination.


The vanguard trio poses more of a puzzle challenge than a standard boss encounter. Although their attacks lack intensity, simultaneous defeat of all three proves necessary. This task can be cumbersome when operating within an inexperienced team. Nevertheless, once you grasp their mechanics, vanguards become one of the more accessible bosses within the Chamber of Xeric.

Skeletal Mystics

Skeletal Mystics constitute another easy boss encounter, aligning more with demi-bosses than full-fledged bosses. They are best tackled with ranged strategies and exhibit swiftness. Mastery of intricate mechanics is unnecessary, and dispatching Skeletal Mystics typically takes only a few minutes.

Great Olm (the final boss)

Great Olm stands as the most demanding boss within the Chambers of Xeric. His formidable hits, multiple forms, and extensive hitpoints contribute to his challenging nature. Despite this, Great Olm holds a special place as one of the favored OSRS bosses. Notably, he is exclusive to OSRS and absent in Runescape 3.

Conquering Great Olm may prove difficult during initial attempts, but perseverance allows for improvement. It is worth noting that repeated deaths may result in point loss, but this is an expected aspect of the learning process. Great Olm earns a significant S-tier ranking in our assessment.


Osrs how to check boss kills

Tracking your boss kills in OSRS can be achieved through several methods: The Highscores, the Achievement Gallery, and the Runelite client command.
High Scores: As you accumulate boss kills in OSRS, your count will appear on the high scores. You can also use this feature to check another player’s boss kill count.
Achievement Gallery: Constructing an adventure log in your Achievement Gallery enables you to track your boss kills and slayer kills for specific monsters. This requires a construction level of 83.
Runelite Commands: If you’re using the Runelite client, you can use the chat command “!kc [boss name]” to find out how many times you’ve defeated a particular boss. For example, typing “!kc jad” will display your Jad kill count.

Who gets the boss loot Osrs

In OSRS, there is no such thing as loot share. That means the player who has done the most damage when fighting the boss will get the loot. Players who have not done the most damage when fighting the OSRS boss will get no drops.

What is the most recent new boss in OSRS? 

Nex is the most recent boss added to Old School RuneScape. Introduced on January 8, 2022, Nex can be found in the God Wars Dungeon and drops the coveted Torva armor. Nex attacks with Magic, Ranged, and Melee.

How long till boss drops appear on the ground in OSRS

For the player who dealt the most damage and is entitled to the loot, the drops appear instantly. If that player doesn’t pick up the drops, tradable items will appear after 60 seconds. If the drops are still unclaimed after 120 seconds, they will disappear.
